Ubisoft has launched The 19th Century Search Engine, an imagination of what a search engine might look like in the year 1868; the same year Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place.
Though the internet did not exist in 1868, the new 19th Century Search Engine showcases a representation of what an internet search engine may have looked like back in this time. The search engine features hundreds of piece of original content, and uses real illustrations from the era.
The 19th Century Search Engine has been created to allow fans to brush up on their 19th century knowledge before Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launches later this month. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will take place in London in 1868, during the peak of the Industrial Revolution, as players control sibling assassins, Jacob and Evie Frye.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will launch October 23 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while PC owners will have to wait a little more, before it becomes available November 19. Ubisoft also recently announced DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, featuring the infamous Jack The Ripper.
