Welp! Here comes the game!
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate was revealed yesterday, and (as first noticed by the folks at Kotaku) some suspiciously familiar art. One of the men in the art for a London pit-fighting scene in damn 1868 is sporting a build and back tattoo that are familiar to anyone who’s been to Suplex City in 2015.
Jump to the 21:50 mark in the reveal video to see former UFC and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar hitting (maybe) Frank Mir in the head with a shovel.
Here’s a direct comparison, in case you aren’t familiar with Brock’s body of Predator skulls and chest-swords:
Who else could that be?
I’ve never played an Assassin’s Creed game in my life, but if I find out I can run around Industrial Revolution London as jacked-up Smackdown Here Comes The Pain Brock Lesnar, I’ll pre-order it and wait in line to pick it up at midnight. I didn’t know I needed The Beast Incarnate f*cking a horse and carriage, but here we are.
