I got a new 15" MacBook Pro with 460 GPU and I downloaded AC syndicate. I'm gonna have to test it out some myself but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the best graphics settings are.

I've never gamed with boot camp before so I'm new to this.

Much appreciated

I would recommend starting at 1920x1080 resolution and medium settings. If it runs smoothly then you can try setting things on high and see how it runs.

According to Notebookcheck's review of the Radeon Pro460 (scroll down on their review to see the gaming results) it seems like a lot of major games (Battlefield 1, Witcher 3, Dishonored 2, etc.) run at around 30 fps at medium settings. Some less demanding games will be able to be set on high settings.

Keep in mind that the 15" MBP isn't a designed as a gaming machine. It will still be able to run plenty of games at decent settings, but it's GPU is more meant for OpenCL/Metal work then gaming. Gaming won't hurt the machine at all, I'm just saying to have tempered expectations.
2019 16" MBP: i7 9750H @ 2.6 GHz || Radeon 5500M 4GB || 16 GB DDR4 || 512 GB SSD || macOS Catalina
Desktop PC: R5 3600X || RTX 2080 || 32 GB DDR4 || 1TB 970 EvoPlus + 1TB Seagate FireCuda || Win10 Pro
Other: 30TB Plex Server || PS4 Pro || iPhone X

Thanks! That's basically the answer I was looking for. I know it's not a gaming machine, and I don't mind not being able to run things on the highest settings. It's just an occasional pastime.

Just thought I'd mention that it runs flawlessly even on highest settings.

My wife's 15" Macbook Pro runs Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on the highest settings.  It's a neat little machine.
