View Full Version : AC Syndicate Easter Egg? [SPOILERS]

11-01-2015, 09:28 PM
So I was playing assassins creed syndicate on my Xbox one. I was hopping from boat to boat in the Thames river when I saw what looked like a hole in the world. At first I thought it was the end of the world, but then when I got closer to it I started it hearing dialogue of a girls voice saying "come closer". When I got right next to it a menu popped up like at the beginning of each mission. The description was a few paragraphs of 10011010101010101010. The name of the mission was "The Darkest Hour". The location said world war 1. Of course I immediately played the mission. During the loading screen Jacob,who I was playing as, disappeared and I heard a voice say "What are you doing! You are entering an extremely unstable part of the Animas!" The voice then abruptly cut out and i heard the same voice that said come closer before say "come closer" again. In it you start out in a destroyed room. You proceed to hunt down three spy's, and then you encounter Winston Churchill. Your first objective is to find information about a radio. When you play it you unlock new information in the encyclopedia about your new character under present day under WW1. You play as Lydia Frye, Jacob Fryes granddaughter. You play in a large area of London that has been almost completely re-skinned with new characters such as soldiers instead of police. I looked around the web and there is almost no info about it. Has anyone else found this?

You may want to use a spoiler tag in the title next time :)

It's not an easter egg, it's basically a time anomaly like the ones in Unity.

I'm guessing this is Ubi's way of giving us a WW1 setting without making a full game out of it, since a lot of people wanted it. It's a nice little treat, and a nice way to involve Juno some more.

Well the Binary code was:
01101100 01111001 01100100 01101001 01100001 01110111 01101001 01101100
01101100 01101100 01100101 01100001 01100100 01111001 01101111 01110101
01101000 01101111 01101101 01100101 00001101 00001010

And it stands for: lydiawillleadyouhome
Which means "Lydia will lead you Home"

You've probably ruined the Easter Egg now for many

Next time add a spoiler tag to the title and don't reveal gameplay content like you did in the title either.

Fair Warning!

Actually Ubi ruined it by including the name of the event in the game menus. Not very smooth.

Yeah, my friend who knew very little about the game figured it out that way.

They might've done it on purpose, though. It's a big part of the game, and pretty well hidden otherwise.
