Assassin’s Creed Game Order

It’s been a decade since the first Assassin’s Creed crowded the gaming industry by helping lost gamers travel into a world of heavy gaming. In addition to the popularity, It has blossomed into a spectrum of a franchise that includes 11 comics, a variety of enough Pop! Toys, seven spinoffs, one Michael Fassbender film, an under-development TV show, and nine novels to form a jam band.

In the previous year, AC Origins provided something of a revision, mercifully taking off a ton of the backstory that had transformed into a complicated meta-narrative on both sides of the history of the world. We think that’s great, as a new beginning is what the series needs.

Furthermore, there are several installments released recently, but they haven’t been ranked in order; but leave that to us because we have created a list of the best to the least Assassin’s Creed games. Let’s begin.

Assassin’s Creed

Assassins Creed
Assassins Creed

Release Date: November 13, 2007

Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Third Crusade

Year: 1191 AD

What’s so addictive about the original Assassin’s Creed, other than its beautiful wax-like characters – is the feeling you get while playing in every moment with the realization that you are in a mysterious and most outrageous zone gaming.

The game begins in a holy land in the year 1191. The character you choose takes the role of an assassin in a classified political order. In addition to this, the player is also playing as a normal human being named Desmond, who is pinned to a machine in the present day that enables him to relive “generic memories” of his ancestors – kind of like in the movie Avatar.

However, the creators of this game didn’t feel like that was enough, so they added a twist between both the present and the past by giving the character a task to begin a huge search for a special relic enthused by the apple in the Garden of Eden that contains the power to be in charge of human minds.

By playing the original Assassin’s Creed, you will get your hands on a brilliant piece of concept; its raw complexity makes it even more exciting. There is less to see and little to do; that’s what makes this game a great one to have a series of.

Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles

Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles
Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles

Release Date: February 5, 2008

Platforms: Nintendo DS, Android, iOS, WebOS, Symbian, Jave ME, and Windows Phone

Setting: Third Crusade

Year: 1190 AD

The Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles is known to be a 3D action game that positions you in the same places you visited in the original version, but instead of having the whole world to explore, you only have a huge green arrow to show you the way.

This is helpful because it guides you while you travel throughout the world, but it can be very distracting and irritating when you fall off a cliff since you are sure of where you have to go. When you drop, you don’t just lose your health, but you also lose your real-life motivation, and you are very likely to meet a lot of enemies along the way.

However, there is no such improvement in the combat, but the flaws are for sure less in this version. You’ll be surprised to see how well you can fight because the fighting controls were the main weaknesses in the original version.

Furthermore, the game contains a solid control scheme, but that can be improved. Most of the movement is done through the d-Pad, but you will still need the stylus held in your hand to perform many moves.

In conclusion, Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles is a great addition to the series.

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines

Assassin Creed Bloodlines
Assassin Creed Bloodlines

Release Date: November 17, 2009

Platforms: PlayStation Portable

Setting: Third Crusade

Year: 1191 AD

The Assassin’s Creed: Bloodline doesn’t really give players what they want. On the surface, the Bloodline offers many features that you would naturally expect from an AC game. It gives you control of the Altair, the leader of the game, and sends you on a mission to assassinate all of your Templar foes, who equally contain the urge to stab you with their swords.

You will notice that bloodlines hold back on what makes console games amazing if you think about it. The enjoyable experience of rooftop running has been reduced with flawed platforms and small environments. The worst part is that bustling cities have been replaced with barren districts on the island of Cyprus.

Regardless of all these flaws, It still offers a short period of bloody thrills you would expect from a well-managed counterattack. However, the game is still a bit unsatisfying because of its massive changes. Not only has the story disappointed you, but also the hero.

Furthermore, Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines includes a basic level-up mechanism in which you can use the coins you find worldwide and add upgrades.

Assassin’s Creed II

Assassin Creed II
Assassin Creed II

Release Date: November 17, 2009

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and OS X

Setting: Italian Renaissance

Year: 1476-1499 AD

Assassin’s Creed II is based on the story of Ezio Auditore. It takes place right after its modern-age occasions. In addition to this, the whole scene creates a significant and unique jump to the era in which the player would be performing the assassinating during the current times – the Renaissance-era Italy.

Without a doubt, this improved version of Assassin’s Creed features more updates and better graphics than the previous one. Also, there are more character options, more maps, and more weapons to look forward to. So, it goes without saying; you won’t get bored of AC II.

Furthermore, Its regarded to be one of the most frequently played games in the world of video gaming. It is a huge addition to the lineup. It introduced one of the most recognizable and likable Assassin’s Creed leaders – Ezio Auditore da Firenze – but there are many important enhancements in the game, most importantly the gameplay, which is diverse and attractive.

So, once you start playing Assassin’s Creed II, you can’t stop yourself from dwelling in a world of fantasy and hyper assassinations.

Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery

Assassin Creed II Discovery
Assassin Creed II Discovery

Release Date: November 17, 2009

Platforms: Nintendo DS, iOS

Setting: Italian Renaissance

Year: 1491 AD

The Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery was released alongside Altair’s Chronicles. Keeping that in mind, the gameplay was fundamental, although a 2.5D environment formula was added. As you know, Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery can be played on the DS, but another version of it was released that enabled iOS players to join in as well.

It takes real strategizing and critical thinking to transform the satisfying stealth kills and freestyle climbing of the Assassin’s Creed series into a successfully created 2D platformer, yet the Assassin’s Creed; Griptonite, has done that exactly.

All because of the attractive animations and the fast-paced leaping and running, Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery is very fun to play the game. In addition to this, the audio and visual touches add a sense of home for enthusiastic franchise fans. However, Ezio’s first adventure is kind of a missed opportunity.

Some of the levels are hard rather than motivating, and the story loses its flair when it finally starts to get interesting. But, if Discovery isn’t everything it could have been, it is still a great mix of jumping, dramatic kills, and sneaking – all for a few hours.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Assassin Creed Brotherhood
Assassin Creed Brotherhood

Release Date: November 16, 2010

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and OS X

Setting: Italian Renaissance

Year: 1499-1507 AD

If you’re a fan of Ezio, then you are going to love the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, as it is a continuation of the story of Ezio. However, the mechanisms used in this version are no different from those used in the previous title.

Still, the AC: Brotherhood builds a system of its own, mostly because it adds a managed system that enables the player to recruit other players as assassins whom they can rely on by sending them on missions or asking for aid in combats. In addition to this teamwork, you will receive many rewards, so be sure to look out for your recruitment as well.

Furthermore, the Assassin’s Creed: Brother contains minor changes in the combat section that make it runnier. Brotherhood is also the first Assassin’s Creed game that includes the competitive multiplayer option.

In conclusion, Assassin’s Creed: Brother is a great addition to the series. The main reason why many people prefer this game is because it contains a competitive multiplayer feature.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Assassins Creed Revelations
Assassins Creed Revelations

Release Date: November 15, 2011

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Setting: Italian Renaissance

Year: 1511-1512 AD

DLCS: The Lost Archive, The Ancestors Character Pack, Mediterranean Traveler Map Pack

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the last chapter of Ezio’s story. In addition to the end of the story, the Revelations includes a dramatic shift in the game’s environment, shifting from Italian cities such as Rome and Firenze to the center of the Ottoman Empire – Istanbul.

While there are many changes in the game’s setting, there are no such changes in the gameplay mechanism because they are the same. But, this does not seem to be a huge problem for those fans of the previous gameplay mechanism.

Furthermore, you can’t say that the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations does not include any new features, as it does include the “hook blade,” which enabled the zipline traversal of the location and some new assassination activities.

However, the unfortunate thing about the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is that it is one of the most forgettable entries in the entire series – but if you are in it for the story, as the story of Ezio ends quite good, and in a way that is sure to give rise to the spirit of gaming in the original game’s fans.

Assassin’s Creed Rearmed

Assassins Creed Rearmed
Assassins Creed Rearmed

Release Date: October 21, 2011

Platforms: iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad

Assassin’s Creed Rearmed is all about being a pre-programmed AI while keeping watch for those players that distract from the idea. In addition to this, if you notice an individual stop by unexpectedly, abruptly backtracks, or scales a roof, there is a definite chance of you being their prey.

Furthermore, the game gifts you for stealth, first kill and give you points to unlock new items and weapons in the shop. In the shopping section, you will discover a variety of purchasable items, from heavy weapons to awesome items like disguises to fool your competitors and smoke bombs, and new personas so you can don nice threads.

When it comes to the production value, the setting in this game might feel like a turn-down for the franchise fans. Instead of having an attractive 3D environment to play in, the Assassin’s Creed: Rearmed features a dialed back, down-to-earth look, giving the vibe of a budget-friendly game rather than being a successful studio production.

However, this is not a major issue, and since the gameplay completely relies on “out of the box” thinking, you will always find yourself in the indie scene, and that’s the real deal.

Assassin’s Creed Recollection

Assassins Creed Recollection
Assassins Creed Recollection

Release date: December 13, 2011

Platforms: iPad

Assassin’s Creed: Recollection is a huge deal, and it is a huge package as well. The card pool is massive, containing 288 cards and many other Revelations-related cards in the background. Each of the 288 cards features unique and gorgeous artwork.

In addition to this, Ubisoft also included the game with a 20-minute Embers CG film and elaborative high-resolution idea art galleries from all the four titles of the Assassin’s Creed. All of these bonuses make up for the Assassin’s Creed: Recollection to be a complete package and an easy purchase for the Assassin’s entire Creed fans out there.

Furthermore, Recollection is considered to be one of the best iPad games ever. However, the card battles lag in speed, but it is really satisfying to build a themed deck and use it to battle your opponent.

One of the biggest reasons which made this game famous was the Clip of Ezio’s last days. The duration of the clip was about 21 minutes.

Assassin’s Creed Memories

Assassin’s Creed Memories
Assassin’s Creed Memories

Release Date: August 20, 2014

Platforms: iOS

Assassin’s Creed: Memories is an RPG trading card game. This game is exclusive to iOS.This might not feature an attractive or diverse gameplay setup, but it still does a great job combining some of the familiar Assassin’s Creed ideas with the new concepts and gameplay.

However, the game tries to engage players towards some microtransactions. Yet, it also offers various freebies for the enthusiastic players and keeps giving rewards at a steady pace that the game never feels like a “pay cash to win a title” kind of game. The servers of this game closed on 13th March 2015, so it’s no longer playable.

Assassin’s Creed III

Assassins Creed III
Assassins Creed III

Release Date: October 30, 2012

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Wii U, and Nintendo Switch

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1754-1783 AD

DLCS: Tyranny of King Washington, Battle-Hardened, Benedict Arnold Missions

Assassins Creed III is an open-world adventure and free to roam game developed by Ubisoft. This game takes the player into the life of an 18th century Assassin named Connor. This game was a big hit since its release in 2012, as it was able to ship more than 12 million copies worldwide.

The game shares a very Interesting fictional Story, which is based on real-life events. This game was released for the Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii U, and Microsoft Windows. With all the efforts put into creating the game, this game earned positive reviews and emerged as a big hit.

This game’s story continues from its prequel, which is named Assassins Creed: Revelations. The audience loved this game very much because it got remastered in 2019 with better graphics and increased its availability to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

The main protagonist of this game is Ratonhnhaké: ton (Connor). The main highlight of the game is its gameplay. It is tough to find such gameplay in this type of category. You can roam around forests and cities of the 18th Century. There were many changes made in this game from its previous titles, making it unique.

One of the significant changes was new weather simulation-like changes of season and the impact of the revisions on the player. Like if there was snow, it was hard to run. This game was revolutionary for the Assassins Creed series, as the players were now able even to swim and have complete ocean battles. Although this game had the same missions as the previous titles, many changes were never seen in an Assassin creed game before.

The plot is of the game is very strong, which makes it more exciting as a mission passes by. The story revolves around Desmond Miles, who jumps into the account of his ancestors with the help of a machine called Animus. In this game, the controlling player was able to control both the protagonist and antagonist and the surprising fact was that both were the ancestors of Desmond. This game got positive reviews from critics on its eye-catching script and plot.

The game was released by having three collector editions of itself based on different platforms. The DLC (downloadable content) was available with a season pass with the game’s release. The Season pass had some amazing Single-player missions to be played. The DLC revolved around an alternative storyline of the king of Washington, also known as George Washington.

Since its release, the game was a massive hit and has won many awards due to its amazing graphics and mechanics. The mechanics for hunting animals were much praised and liked by the audience as they hadn’t seen this type of intensity in hunting simulations before.

The game was nominated almost in every category of the awards in the year of its release. The remastered version is also getting positive reviews as the game was already good enough, but now it has the latest realistic graphics edition.

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation

Release Date: October 30, 2012

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Vita

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1765-1777 AD

The Assassin’s Creed: Liberation is similar to Discovery, but Liberation was released mostly for the PS Vita, and it was kind of a full-fledged Assassin’s Creed game than any of the other versions containing an open-world arrangement, using advanced graphics, and a series runny combat system.

Furthermore, liberation was tuned to the PS3, Windows, and the Xbox 360 two years after Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD. The most noticeable change in Liberation is the change in graphics and better response to new platforms.

Moreover, the game was remastered and released as the Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered in 2019 for PC, PS4, and the Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Release Date: October 29, 2013

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Wii U

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1715-1722 AD

DLCS: Freedom Cry, Guild of Rogues

Assassin’s Creed IV is an open-world stealth game that continues its story from its predecessor, Assassins Creed iii. This game is created by Ubisoft Studios and was released in 2013. The game got its Nintendo Switch counterpart in 2016.

This game was ranked among the most selling games of 2013 due to its unique gameplay on events based on real-life characters from history. The main protagonist of this game is Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Ratonhnhaké:ton: ton (Connor), who was the main playable character of its previous version.

What makes the game a must-play is the vast open-world map that has three major cities in it. This game portrays the life of the pirate assassinator Edward Kenway and his assassinations during the Golden age of Piracy.

If we talk about the mechanics and gameplay, then this game hasn’t left anything to be uncovered. From the graphics to the engine, there is everything to be enjoyed by the competition. This game is also considered one of the best games released in the Assassins Creed series.

This game was a major hit of 2013, and the open-world map introduced in this game was unique at that time. Unlike other open-world games, this game’s unique and fantastic point is that it takes you back to old times and lets you experience the real-time events that have occurred.

The game offers the same type of missions as its previous titles, but there were few additions to it to make it more enjoyable than its former counterparts. One of them was the Open-world to be unlocked sooner and give the player the full freedom to explore the map. While exploring the map, a player can roam through forests, ruins, and places based on the older era.

The plot of the game is gripping and exciting to play. If you have played the Assassins creed before, we are sure that this game would be loved most by you; you continue from the end of the previous title and take the role of the father of Haytham Kenway, the main antagonist of the last title.

Like the earlier games of the series, there are two halves of the game, with one of them being the historical and one of the present day. Both parts are interconnected with each other and let the character relive the life of his ancestors.

There was a season pass available with the release of the game, which had an additional set of missions known as Freedom Cry. The freedom cry deals with the story of Adéwalé, who is a slave from Trinidad who ultimately becomes part of the assassin’s order. The story is set 20 years after the ending of the Black Flag. The Kraken Ship DLC was also available with the season pass to improve and customize the jackdaw.

The game got released on Smartphones by the name Assassins Creed Pirates, which somehow tries to give users the Original Game’s experience. This game is also considered the first pirate game of the series. This game can still play, and you can find it on steam; if you have a console, this game is also available on them.

Assassin’s Creed: Pirates

Assassins Creed Pirates
Assassins Creed Pirates

Release Date: December 5, 2013

Platforms: Android, iOS

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1716-1718 AD

When it comes to the mobile spin-off, Assassin’s Creed: Pirates, other than some static cut-situations, the story of the main version is convoluted with only background murmur, which leaves you with a lot of ocean to enjoy with no Abstergo or parkour conspiracy to get into the way.

The Assassin’s Creed: Pirates is made of many bits and pieces that come together to create a patchy but logical scenario of pirate life. However, could the game be a little less in-depth and piecemeal in how it gives out missions?

Of course, it can. But, if you only want to have a solid pirate game that you can easily get the hang of, and have hours of gameplay with zero paywalls, the Assassins’ Creed: Pirates is totally worth the play.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry

Assassin Creed Freedom Cry
Assassin Creed Freedom Cry

Release Date: February 25, 2014

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1735-1737 AD

The Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry was officially launched in December 2013 as a total DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, but the game was released as an independent one after some time. However, when you consider that it was only a DLC for the previous version, it is less or more obvious of what can be expected from the game.

In addition to the introduction of the Freedom Cry, it features a brand new leader, Adewale, a former slave, transformed into an assassin, and the combat of the game takes place two decades after those of the Black Flag.

Furthermore, Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry does not include any huge changes in both storytelling and mechanics, which is natural to know because it was just a DLC.

However, the game includes a nice amount of brand new content and gear that enhances the whole experience of playing Freedom Cry. In addition to this, Freedom Cry is a much better option than the Black Flag, as it offers a distinct feel.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Assassins Creed Rogue
Assassins Creed Rogue

Release Date: November 11, 2014

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1752-1776 AD

DLCS: Templar Legacy Pack

The last game in the Colonial world – Rogue, one of the oldest Assassin’s Creed games ever. In addition to being the last Colonial-era game, Rogue is also the first and only game to feature a player carrying the role of a Templar instead of an assassin. There are a lot of impressive gameplay changes that reflect the idea of the game as well.

Moreover, a lot of importance has been given to the range of new and awesome weapons, like gender launchers, for instance. It is a nice game, but only if you want to get a taste of the Colonial era for the last time.

Furthermore, Assassin’s Creed Rogue also features its predecessor’s naval discoveries, which shift the environment from the Caribbean to the Arctic. However, there were no major changes in terms of the mechanics other than having improved weapons to play with.

However, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue was originally launched for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, but a PC version was released a year later. In addition to that, the game was finally available on Xbox One and the PS4 as a 2018 remastered version.

Assassin’s Creed Identity

Assassin Creed Identity
Assassin Creed Identity

Release Date: February 25, 2016

Platforms: Android, iOS

Setting: Italian Renaissance

Year: 1501-1506 AD

Unlike all the other core entries, Assassin’s Creed: Identity is known to be a level-based video game, where players are supposed to enter normal-sized sandboxes manually to complete missions. However, it is not entirely an open-world attempt, but some limitations help normalize Identity, so it feels like you are handling a console game.

When it comes to the controls, they work well with just a touch, and you can even use an MFi joystick if you want. You can move your player by moving your thumb on the left side and handling the camera on the right side – just like two analog fixes. In addition to this, climbing is done in the same way, only moving towards a wall.

However, a cool feature is added that shows your trajectory levels when leaping from buildings, so you don’t end up dying. The frame rate of the Assassin’s Creed is quite stable, and it looks like a totally awesome Assassin’s Creed game, even when played on a small device. There are literally no stutters, which really helps when trying to get used to the touch feature.

It is straightforward, and you get to discover new superpowers when firing enemies in combat.

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Assassin Creed Unity
Assassin Creed Unity

Release Date: November 11, 2014

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: French Revolution

Year: 1776-1800 AD

DLCS: Dead Kings, Secrets of the Revolution, Revolutionary Armaments, Underground Armory

Assassin’s Creed Unity is an action title and successor of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. This title’s plot continues as it has been through a series of the storyline, which is “Assassins as protagonist and templars as antagonists.” The plot is quite based on history, which is briefly directed and acknowledged by historians and believers.

The setting and era of this title are portraited in 18th century Paris during the French Revolution in 1789. The game’s main character is Arno Dorian (Dan Jeannotte), a Frenchman born to a professional Assassin father in Versailles.

After Shay Patrick Cormac Kills his father, Arno gets adopted. He sets out on a search of redemption that brings him into the Brotherhood of Assassins, where he slowly rises through the ranks, very similar to Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze as seen in previous games.

We possess an avatar via a modern time research phenomenon intending to contact the predecessors of assassins to narrate the timeline in true aspects. In Initiate, a player of Helix is inaction into a gaming device produced by Abstergo that permits access to several different genetic memories.

Assassin’s Creed Unity offers massive stealth instincts in an open world environment with still serving the same role as the Hidden Blade and other long-ranged stealth weaponry, unlike in previous Assassin’s Creed games.

Navigation and parkour for the game were also enhanced like new “Free-run up” and “Free-run down” assist were added up to make it easier for the player to scale and leap buildings and climb onto in any (possible) direction. Additionally, Arno learns new moves and adapts to deadly skills throughout the game, although the player can also purchase new skills.

The breathtaking environment regularly presents many activities, appearing organically and nearly eventually, that the player can then choose to engage in at their leisure and interest. Examples include scaring a group of enemies by pulling out guns and weapons, chasing down a thief who has just pickpocketed somebody, etc.

Assassin’s Creed Unity also introduces a coop multiplayer to the series. Players can enter taverns, which act as social hubs and lobby in the game, where you can see if any friends are playing the game in real-time.

If they are currently in a mission, they will appear as a “ghost” player’s version of their avatar, allowing you to reach out to it to request to join their mission. Up to four players can join together in this way.

The player will take on the role of Arno, personalized within their own game, with other players appearing as their own customized version of Arno in their own sets of equipment, weapons, and armor. Many missions can be engaged in multiplayer mode, but some story missions are single-player only.

For the first time, Assassins Creed Unity allows players to customize characters’ abilities via a skill tree that lets players assign points earned through gameplay to improve their skills in stealth, direct combat/melee, long-range combat, and health enhancements.

Players can also customize their weapons, armor, and equipment to classy and extraordinary according to their discrete style of play. Players also have a wider selection of weapons available in the isle of the well-organized menu, including swords, axes, spears, rifles, and throwable items, such as smoke bombs.

This installment is really healthy for Assassin’s Creed, storyline adorers in all the creative and efficient fashions. But a hasty release made it buggy and unplayable and pushing their fans in lasting despair of quality trust. For the majority of enthusiasts, its storyline is more than enough for a lasting impression. Let’s hope for Ubisoft to take note of feedbacks to make ways to a greater impression in all aspects.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China

Release Date: April 21, 2015

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Vita

Setting: Ming Dynasty

Year: 1526-1532 AD

The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is pretty much one of the major games in the three-game lineup of 2.5D podiums inspired by the original Assassin’s Creed. However, Assassin’s Creed: China travels far from photorealism to provide simpler, better, watercolor: styled graphics. The game does an exceptional job by adapting the lineup to the brand new genre.

You can enjoy the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China when you want to experience an enhanced 2.5D gaming experience and return to the Assassin’s Creed original.

Release Date:  October 23, 2015

PlatformsPlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Victorian era

Year: 1868 AD

DLCS: Jack the Ripper, The Last Maharaja, The Dreadful Crimes, The Darwin and Dickens Conspiracy, Steampunk Pack

Syndicate is a teensy bit better version of Assassin’s Creed Unity in terms of the entire setup, moving from Paris during the French revolution to the Victorian era of London.

In addition to this, the Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is the first version to include multiple leaders, and what’s more? You can use both of the Frye twins – Evie and Jacob throughout the game,

When it comes to the gameplay, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate contains a wide selection of melee and new weapons, while the competitive multiplayer option of the game is absent entirely.

Moreover, It’s known to be the last game before the huge transfer to Origins.

It is a great game when you want to get the last taste of the Assassin’s Creed series.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India

Release date: January 12, 2016

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Vita

Setting: Sikh Empire

Year: 1841 AD

As you know, the Assassin’s Creed games take place in thrilling locales like the Caribbean islands, Rome, or Egypt; it was just a matter of time when Ubisoft’s stunning stealth-action permit had to set an entry in India.

Kind of like the previous AC Chronicles: China, and not like the other 3D releases of Assassin’s Creed, the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India disregards the present-day struggles with many warring groups, the Templars and the Assassins, presenting their major focus on a pre-independent India.

The player’s name is Arbaaz Mir, an assassin who just stole the diamond of Kohinoor from the East India Company. In just a matter of time, your order has been searched, and your beloved partner kidnapped.

When it comes to the setting of ACC: India, it is not the best, but it is more than enough to keep you satisfied. However, a particular absence of personality and features makes this game different from the final Assassin’s Creed games.

Furthermore, the Indian plot provides an excuse to ride through various obstacles and sneaking past guards without making a sound.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia

Release Date: February 9, 2016

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Vita

Setting: October Revolution

Year: 1918 AD

After the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia release, the creators take the rest of 2016 off. As Russia was the last chapter of the chronicles, you would obviously have some hopes and expectations for an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, the game is nothing like that; instead, it is merely a nonplussed weariness. However, the other two chapters India and China, were not.

In the chronicles of Russia, the main player is named Orelov, who is a Russian assassin on a quest at the comeback of the 20th century. Orelov is in charge of recovering the Precursor box, a main item from the previous chronicles.

In between his missions, rummaging and sneaking into the royal palace just to capture the box, he happens to pass by one of the most legendary touchstones of Russian history: the extinction of Czar Nicholas II and his family under the Bolsheviks.

According to the legend, the youngest daughter named Anastasia somehow managed to escape. In this version of the Chronicles, Orelov doesn’t just get the princess out of the palace, but Anastasia also realizes that she has a tiny Assassin in her.

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Release Date: October 7, 2017

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Ptolemaic Egypt

Year: 49-43 BC

DLCS: The Hidden Ones, The Curse Of The Pharaohs, Roman Centurion Pack, Deluxe Pack

Origins offered a new level of gaming by breaking the long-line of the franchise by implementing some major changes, both in terms of gameplay and the settings. In this game, we go all the way back to the Ptolemaic Egypt, and there is a refreshed Assassin’s Creed formula used in the game, combined with an impressive combat system and RPG components.

Furthermore, the major change in the combat section was the implementation of hitboxes, as opposed to the combined animation system of the previous versions.

This means that the player can damage multiple foes with just one attack, but that is a two-way path because it is easier to attack the player. In addition to this, Origins offers an enhanced combat experience that is quite runny and fresh compared to what the franchise offers.

Moreover, the game also includes features like a better world, enabling the player to switch flawlessly between the wilderness and cities of ancient Egypt as they travel around it.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Release Date: October 5, 2018

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows

Setting: Peloponnesian War

Year: 431-404 BC

DLCS: Legacy of the First Blade, The Fate of Atlantis

The Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey was released in the year 2018. This game takes place a thousand years before the Origins, and the major focus is on the Hellenistic world and, not to mention the Peloponnesian War, which enables the player to choose which side they want to represent/fight for.

In addition to this, the game also enables the player to choose between two leaders – Kassandra or Alexios, both of whom are descendants and mercenaries of King Leonidas.

When it comes to the gameplay, it follows the mark of Origins; it features a lot of RPG components, a large variety of weapons, and a massive world to look around. In addition to this, it also includes the return of naval combat, which is similar to what was seen in Rogue and Black Flag.

Assassin’s Creed Rebellion

Release Date: November 21, 2018

Platforms: Android, iOS

Setting: Spanish Inquisition

Year: 1517 AD

You can never end the tasks of an assassin, especially when you are a part of an ancient team of assassins dedicated to eliminating and thwarting the oppressive systems of a powerful ancient system of a tyrannical dictator called the Templar.

Fortunately, the latest iteration in the Abstergo ANIMUS can be downloaded to your phone, which enables you to fight the evilness and exploitive maneuverings of your opponents on the route in the chibi-style. Let’s cut this short, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion is actually a pretty good game that features awesome changes in the setup and, most importantly, the characters.

Let’s come clean; the art of this game is adorable. However, this might feel like a strange choice for an assassin-filled game, but you can easily get used to the cuteness once you watch your chibi players in battle. However, it can be daunting to watch these adorable creatures murder each other, but you will get used to it at some point.

Furthermore, the game also features nice music to keep you intact, and the main story place between the Renaissance periods and starts with Aguilar Deh Nerha to create a team of Assassins from the top.

Release Date: October 30, 2012

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Wii U, and Xbox One

Setting: Colonial era

Year: 1754-1783 AD and 1765-1777 AD

As far as we can tell you, there is no major change in the Assassin’s Creed III Remaster except for the graphics section. Besides knowing that Haytham is a Templar, the Remastered version still makes you play as him for several hours.

This is a prolonged and painful tutorial featured with characters that feel as uninterested as you are. Other than having a ton of criticism in the game, no efforts were made to fix those mistakes.

The combat set in the Assassin’s Creed series was dramatically recreated and enhanced in the Odyssey and Origins, so it is a bit jarring to get back into the old system of killing and counter.

In addition to this, the players struggle to descend big cliffs and buildings, while the wobbling aim means you will end up heading in the wrong direction.

Furthermore, stealth is also terrible, and the hideout areas in the Assassin’s Creed III Remastered feel both floaty and sticky, not to mention impossible to have fun with.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Release Date: November 10, 2020

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series X

Setting: Vikings

Year: 845 CE

According to the spilled beans, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the hyped entry in Ubisoft’s next open-world alt-history lineup, is now the next highway. Both GameStop and Amazon have listed some information about the game, due to which we can guess some things about the next entry in the everlasting AC franchise.

So, what does Ubisoft have to include as the biggest gaming franchise? Well, keep reading to find out more about the Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok.

However, it is important to note that Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed any information yet, so don’t lock what you hear.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft hasn’t declared any final date yet. However, like all other big-budget video games, AC: Ragnarok is likely to launch anywhere between October and December to be a part of the holiday season.

In addition to this, the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launched on October 5, 2018, and its predecessor AC Origins was launched on October 27, 2017. Well, Ubisoft has a habit of releasing games a bit sooner than the November torrent rush – where Battlefield and Call of Duty like to send their recruits. So, there is no final date of release for AC Ragnarok.

We are not sure about this, but according to the spilled beans, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be played on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and later on Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. On the other hand, Ubisoft hasn’t declared any final words about this.

No official gameplay for the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been announced, but we have gathered some info from the leaks.

So, if any of the spilled information is true, the game can include a butt-load of updates. We’ve made some points about how the gameplay would appear (Again, this is all an assumption from the leaks).

  • Enhanced RPG elements to accommodate a new system, and the skill tree modifies according to the choice. In addition to this, you will be able to change the class of your character.
  • A number of weapons which can be upgraded by runes, unique abilities from certain weapons. Also, there will be an important role in durability as well.
  • Naval exploration is back in the game, with more combat.
  • Instead of adrenaline, players have the ability to enable run powers with different elementals – frost, lightning, fire.
  • The hidden blade makes a comeback and can be modified for one-hit murders.
  • There are some upgrades on the stealth modes, like enabling the player to hide in snow, mud, crouch in bushes, and lots of other hiding positions.
  • Conquest battles are back.
  • Players have the chance to arrange large-scale attacks on big cities and forts, or just go for the win alone.

There is no way for you to place a pre-order for the game, as its release date hasn’t been announced yet. The significant thing for you to clearly understand is that all of the above information is based on the leaks, and if everything we guessed about the AC Ragnarok turns out to be true, what will be your major turn-ons?

Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy

Assassins Creed Project Legacy

Release date: October 11, 2010

Platforms: Web browser

The Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy is considered to be a promotional FaceBook game created by Ubisoft. However, this game was developed due to its predecessors, AC and the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

In Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy, you can get to play as yourself in modern times. You have been recruited by a company known as Abstergo to help with something called Project Legacy.

Generally speaking, Abstergo has figured out that we contain the memories of our ancestors in our DNA, and they have managed to develop a machine titled the Animus that takes out those memories.

Furthermore, Abstergo demands you to test the machine by using your current memories to check whether you are a worthy candidate to be a part of the legacy or not. In addition to this, they are also gathering information to compare it to the textbooks, which reveal the truth.

Whereas, if you are not aware of the whole Assassin’s Creed story, you will still be able to get the hang of the Project legacy, as it does not require much knowledge and is very easy to understand.

Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy

Assassins Creed: Lost Legacy
Assassins Creed: Lost Legacy

Release Date: Canceled

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS

The Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy can be a good game if some of its flaws can be handled. Ubisoft announced the release of the Lost Legacy, being developed for the Nintendo 3DS.

The game leader will be Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, the main character in Assassin’s Creed II and the Brotherhood version.

In the Lost Legacy, Ezio travels to the east to get to the former residence of the assassin, Masyaf. In the residence of the order of assassins, Ezio will discover some facts about the secret sect.

Furthermore, in an interview with the Joystiq, the lead writer of the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Darby McDevitt, disclosed that the Lost Legacy was slipped, and its gameplay/story elements were transferred into the Revelations instead. Unfortunately, the Lost Legacy turned out to be a canceled project for the Nintendo 3DS.

The game would have featured Ezio Auditore in his quest to discover the lost castle at Masyaf – the ancient throne of the Assassins. All of its story elements were supposedly captured into the AC: Revelations, and as a result, the Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy got canceled.

Assassin’s Creed: Utopia

Assassin’s Creed: Utopia
Assassin’s Creed: Utopia

Release Date: Cancelled

Platforms: iOS, Android

The Assassin’s Creed: Utopia is another canceled mobile game that runs on the GREE platform to be played on all Android and iOS devices. The game’s story revolves around the Assassin’s Creed III idea, yet there would have been no similarities in the gameplay between Creed III and Utopia.

Utopia would have been a part of the 17th century, at the start of the colonization of America, covering 150 years, to help players learn how the inspired history of assassins helped create the nation’s own thirteen colonies.

Furthermore, Utopia’s main focus was supposed to be on the immigrants who came into the New World to form their own Utopia, far from the persecution happening in Europe. After taking part in the time period, Abstergo created a place called “Utopia.”

When it comes to the “could have been gameplay,” it would have featured creating your own Utopian Colonial place and would have been a social tilt than any of the previous Assassin’s Creed games. The assassins in the game would have fought their enemies in limited epic battles, and players would have been able to hollow their lives against friend’s un-paced 3D battles.
