Is that Brock Lesnar in Assassin's Creed Syndicate?


Bloody well looks like it

An eagle-eyed Kotaku reader has spotted a familiar - if unexpected - figure in the recent Assassin's Creed Syndicate stream: wrestler and all-round I-kick-asses-for-a-living-dude, Brock Lesnar. 

To check it out for yourself, head to the official reveal stream and jump in around 21.05. And because I'm lovely, here's a handy close-up, just for you:

And here's a close up of the artwork on Lesnar's back:

That kind of similarity isn't coincidental; it's deliberate and intentional and, let's be honest, more than a tiny bit awesome. 

Does it mean Brock Lesnar is in the upcoming Assassin's Creed game? Probably not, particularly as we're looking at concept art rather than in-game graphics. But given he appears to be whacking former UFC champ Frank Mir in the face, anything's possible, right?

I hope they had permission to use his likeness, though. Can't say I'd want to get on the wrong side of him. 

We've reached out to Ubisoft and will let you know what it has to say.
