Assassin’s Creed Syndicate contains quite a few collectible items, including 12 Royal Correspondence letters carefully hidden in the borough of Westminster. Each one contains a red wax seal, and picking one up gives the player XP. Find them all to receive the Lady Anne Greenwood’s Cape, along with a trophy or achievement depending on the console.
To begin, head to Buckingham Palace in Westminster, but before doing this, it’s important to clear the borough beforehand, since there are Blighters nearby. Otherwise, it should take an hour to gather all of the letters. When you find them all, buy the cape for $6,000. If you’re short on virtual cash, opening roughly 10 common chests throughout the game should do it; you’ll find valuable crafting materials to boot.
Tips for Finding Royal Correspondence Letters
- These letters appear as envelope icons providing you found them on the map.
- Additionally, players will discover chests near these letters. Open each chest and collect the loot inside.
- If for some reason you can’t find a particular letter, activate a waypoint on the map and you’ll receive specific directions.
- While it’s OK to kill Royal Guards, we prefer sneaking up behind these guys and taking each one down using non-lethal means. No reason to be a monster.
