Assassin’s Creed
Assassin’s Creed is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the first installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. The game was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2007 and was made available on Microsoft Windows in April 2008.

A player character is a modern-day man named Desmond Miles who, through a machine called the “Animus”, relives the genetic memories of his ancestor, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad. Through this plot device, details emerge about a centuries-old struggle between two factions: the Assassin Brotherhood, who fight for peace with free will, and the Knights Templar, who desire peace through control. Both factions seek an artifact called the “Apple of Eden”, which can be used to control minds, with the Assassins wishing to destroy it before it can be used for evil. The 12th-century portion of the game follows Altaïr, a high-ranking member of the Assassins, who after breaking the tenets of the Brotherhood during a botched mission, must assassinate a select group of targets to regain his lost honor. The game includes an open world comprising four cities—Masyaf, Jerusalem, Acre, and Damascus—and focuses on the player’s combat, stealth, and parkour abilities.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. It was released on October 23, 2015, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on November 19, 2015, for Microsoft Windows.

Assassin’s Creed Origins
Assassin’s Creed Origins is a 2017 action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the tenth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Principally set in Egypt, near the end of the Ptolemaic period (49–43 BC), the story follows a Medjay named Bayek of Siwa and his wife Aya, and explores the origins of the centuries-long conflict between the Hidden Ones—forerunners to the Assassin Brotherhood—who fight for peace by promoting liberty, and The Order of the Ancients—forerunners to the Templar Order—who desire peace through the forced imposition of order. The narrative also includes sequences set during the 21st century, which follow a new character, Layla Hassan. Featuring a large open world, Origins adopted elements from role-playing video games and incorporated an overhauled “hitbox-based” combat system.
The game’s development began following the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013). Ubisoft Montreal led its four-year development with help from a team of nearly 700 people from other Ubisoft studios around the world. The team consulted Egyptologists and historians extensively to ensure the setting was authentically represented in the game. While Assassin’s Creed had been an annual franchise since Assassin’s Creed II (2009), an extra year of development time allowed the team to polish the game further. This was largely a response to the tepid sales of Syndicate, and the troubled launch of Unity, which was plagued with technical issues when it was released in 2014.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. It is the eleventh major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. It was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 5, 2018, with a Stadia version launching alongside the service in 2019. Like its predecessor, the game features a large open world, and adopts elements from the role-playing genre, putting more emphasis on combat and exploration than stealth.
The plot is set in a fictional history of real-world events, but unlike other games in the series, it doesn’t focus on the conflict between the Assassin Brotherhood and the Templar Order. The main narrative is set in the years 431–422 BC and tells a mythological history of the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta. Players control a male or female mercenary (Ancient Greek: μίσθιος missions) who fights on both sides of the conflict as they attempt to find their family. The modern-day portion of the story is set in the 21st century and continues from the events of Origins, as Layla Hassan, now an Assassin agent, searches for Atlantis and a powerful artifact it houses.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a 2020 action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the twelfth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Principally set in the years 872–878 AD, the game recounts a fictional story during the Viking expansions into the British Isles. Players control Eivor Varinsdottir, a Viking raider who becomes embroiled in the centuries-old conflict between the Assassin Brotherhood, who fight for peace and liberty, and the Templar Order, who desires peace through control. The modern-day portion of the story is set in the 21st century and follows Layla Hassan, an Assassin who relives Eivor’s memories to find a way to save the Earth from destruction.
The game was released on November 10, 2020, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Stadia, whilst the PlayStation 5 version was released on November 12. It received generally positive reviews, with praise for the narrative, characters, voice acting, visuals, soundtrack, world design, and the interconnectivity of activities, while being criticized for its length, technical issues, repetitive structure, and reliance on microtransactions over game updates. The game had the biggest launch in the Assassin’s Creed series to date, selling the most copies within its first week.
