Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate goes full Ocean’s Eleven in its latest trailer, showcasing the wide cast of villainous madmen and women Jacob and Evie Frye will face-off against in 19th Century England.

Chief among those heinous villains is Crawford Starrick, head of the London Templars, who has a quick trigger finger. Aiding Starrick in his plot for domination are his seven cohorts who exemplify the greed and corruption of England’s Industrial Revolution. This includes the crooked businessman Rupert Farris, wealthy tycoon Pearl Attaway, the mad medical duo of Dr. John Elliotson and David Brewster, bankroller Phillip Tupenny, the corrupt politician James Brudenell, and leader of the Blighter gang, Maxwell Roth.

The Frye twins go on to discuss their overall goal of ridding London of Templar influence once and for all, before engaging in a montage of zip-lining and launching a train off a bridge. All in a day’s work, it seems.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate includes plenty of other benevolent side characters to interact with, including Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx. Ubisoft also previously announced Syndicate will receive DLC centered on the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate releases October 23, 2015.
