A brand-new Assassin’s Creed board game is announced to head for a Kickstarter campaign in November.

After making more than ten games, producing comic-books and a big-budget live-action film, Assassin’s Creed action-adventure video game series from developer/publisher Ubisoft can surely be considered as a high-profile franchise.

The most recent installment of the series, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is about to release within a month on October 5 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, news of a brand-new Assassin’s Creed board game is about to launch a Kickstarter campaign in November.

Independent board game publishing studio Triton Noir has just announced that they will be starting Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund on November for their upcoming project, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice.

The company made a reputation for themselves for making V-Commandos, a game loosely based on a fan-favorite stealth strategy title Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines from 1998. Currently, we have nothing more at hand than a single image of an assassin while we wait for November 13 to come quickly.

The premise for Brotherhood of Venice is set on 1509, during the period of Italian Renaissance and being of cooperative tactical nature, this tabletop game will mainly focus on stealth. Players will create their very own headquarters for assassins and send them to the city to complete their assigned objectives.

There are 20 unique interrelated missions worth more than 20 hours campaign to complete that the game revolves around. The story of the game is set between the timelines of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

This is definitely not the first attempt of making a board game based on Assassin’s Creed and there are a number of Monopoly games based on the series. Among them all, Assassin’s Creed: Arena from Cryptozoic is the most prominent one you can find out there.

Until any official details are released by Triton Noir, we can't even confirm the duration for the campaign after it goes live. Rumor has it that, popular series protagonist Ezio from Assassin's Creed II will have a have cameo role to play.

Legacy of the First Blade will debut on December and The Fate of Atlantis arrives by spring of 2019. Those post-launch story arcs will come out in episodic nature; each releasing in six weeks after another and in-between them, free in-game regular quests will follow in Tales of Greece.

Speaking of history earlier, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered are both added into Season Pass content. These two games will have all of their original content, plus DLC with visual enhancements of 4K and HDR support for experiencing high-resolution graphics even on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X platform.

Although the former remastered edition title was criticized for having poor plot, it still managed to sell over 3.5 million copies.

You can still make a stand-alone purchase for the remastered titles if you are not at all interested to buy the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft made the same approach with Far Cry 3 Classic Edition when it came along with Season Pass of Far Cry 5.

So, after you complete your quest on Greece as Alexios or Kassandra, you can have some more fun-time with Connor or the first female protagonist of the series, Aveline de Grandpré to experience the era of American Revolution.

Assassin's Creed Series is Backwards Compatible on Xbox One

Thanks to Xbox One backward compatibility, every Assassin's Creed games are now available to play on Xbox One.

Although Microsoft Studios has been lacking exclusive first-party titles for a while and going through a tough time competing with Sony, they did make some smart moves like teaming up with Nintendo by sharing their platform for cross-play and another is introducing backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. After including a series of popular Star Wars games lately, Microsoft has made every Assassin's Creed video game released on Xbox 360 backwards compatible now.

With this new initiative of theirs, Microsoft is being more pro-consumer than their rival company to add an advantage over another. Players can now enjoy games like Crimson Skies and Dragon Age 2 without having jumped back at previous console from 2001. Without swapping to PC or changing platform, you can now have access to a massive library of classic games and players have spent more than 1 billion hours playing those titles on Xbox One already.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Confirmed

Director of Programming for Xbox Live, Larry Hryb has recently announced on Twitter that two more games have been added to Xbox One’s backwards compatibility list. One of them being Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD from 2012 and another is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter from 2006. Even though many are still trying to complete Assassin’s Creed Origins while eagerly waiting for the next title Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, it is nice to have the ability to play the entire series on Xbox One.

PlayStation Vita was the initial platform for Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, which was later re-released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. As new generation of consoles made their debut, Ubisoft introduced Assassin's Creed Rogue and Assassin’s Creed Unity for old and new platforms. Back then, only newly released titles from the franchise could be played in modern consoles but now, Microsoft has made the whole fan-favorite series accessible by added all of them to backwards compatibility list.

The extended catalog now includes Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II, AC: Brotherhood, AC: Revelations, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and AC Rogue. This is a great new move that allows players to move to a newer console and not leaving their favorite games behind but unfortunately, doesn't get enough credit for some unknown reason. New generation of gamers can now easily enjoy these awesome games and become a fan, which is good for business.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Confirmed

Earlier, news of a new Assassin's Creed game titled Assassin's Creed Odyssey came out from a keychain, which not only revealed the franchise's next setup to be ancient Greece, it also seem to connect with last year's critically acclaimed release Assassin's Creed Origins, where we explored ancient Egypt with protagonist Bayek. Ubisoft eventually confirmed those rumors of an upcoming entry of their open-world action-adventure franchise by revealing a short clip on Twitter.

Previously, the developer even denied of any possibilities for a sequel this year and instead chose to focus on more DLC expansions for Origins. So, we were led to believe that either the keychain is an early leak or Odyssey might probably be a large expansion because of its connection to game's ending and suggestive setup of ancient Greece. Realizing that their tight-kept secret is out of the bag anyway, Ubisoft decided to officially confirm their involvement in a sequel with a short tease.



RELATED: Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones DLC Out Now

The upcoming title is in fact "Assassin's Creed Odyssey", a direct nod to Homer's The Odyssey and though very short in length, the video was able to generate much hype. We see a Greek warrior throwing his enemy off from a cliff with a Spartan kick as we saw in live-action film 300 and then the game’s title card takes over the screen showing the new official logo for Odyssey. The traditional Assassin's Creed insignia is changed and a Corinthian helmet is placed at the center of their symbol.

This teaser came with a caption “See you at E3”, clearly hinting of more detailed reveal to happen in E3 2018, which will be June 12-14. In past, the series has ventured into many era from history and had some low performing entries but with Assassin's Creed Origins, Ubisoft was finally able to turn the tide to their favor. The sole reason for that success was the extra year they decided to take for development and hopefully, Odyssey will receive the same treatment to be a stand out title.

Apparently a direct sequel to Ubisoft's action-adventure game Assassin's Creed Origins has been leaked recently. Titled Assassin's Creed Odyssey, this upcoming game will embody a new age for Assassin's Creed franchise. Although the game is still set on distant past, it most probably will introduce a new combat system as well. Also, our hero Bayek from last game will be replaced with a new protagonist who will be venturing in a brand-new open world setting.

Despite skepticism in the early period before release, Origins turned out to be a commercial and critical success. This is mostly because the developers took an extra whole year to work on this project instead of rushing things and moving from their same old New Year release schedule. Looks like they are back again in their same old track with the brand-new upcoming game Odyssey. Since no official announcement was made, very little details about it is out there.

RELATED: Beyond Good and Evil 2 Gameplay Reveal

Rumor of this possible leak for Odyssey first surfaced on a French site, Jeuxvideo, where they have displayed a stylish keychain that is clearly merchandise related to Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The name of the game is not the only hint we want you to take, because there are more. Alongside game's title, there is a logo right under the Assassin's symbol which has a heavy resemblance with helmet from ancient Greece. Also, Odyssey is a renowned Greek epic, implying that the series is moving from Ancient Egypt to Greece.

Before you start pointing out that everyone else could make up a fake key chain and logo because it does not look official or authentic, there is more than this merchandise leak. In the end of Assassin's Creed Origins and its post-game DLC campaign, Ubisoft did actually indicate of a future Greece location. Also, we see Bayek either helping or taking down Greeks and Romans who came across the sea to Egypt in his later operations. Wouldn't it be natural for him and his Brotherhood to continue following the cause and go to Greece?

Besides, new rumor of another Assassin's Creed game was already been out for some time now. Plus, the infamous Walmart leak from few weeks back actually spoiled many anticipating announcement before E3 2018 along with a new title from the franchise. A post on 4chan that made its way to Reddit has the same indication for a plot set on Greece in time of Flavian Dynasty of Roman Empire. Bayek may not return as main character as that era begin almost a century after the events of Origins but he can always appear in flashbacks.

On that note, our friendly advice is to take all leaks and rumors should be taken with a grain of salt but the ratio of leaked information turning out to be true is too damn high these days. Ubisoft did a fine job with Origins and it would only be logical for them to maintain that success streak and maybe even produce a trilogy of some sort. Since they stated that a new release in 2018 is not likely to happen and they will focus on DLC's, Odyssey may turn out to be an expansion after all.

The Hidden Ones DLC pack is made available by Ubisoft for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users and they also dropped a trailer for it.




Chronologically, it takes place almost four years after Assassin’s Creed Origins and as the Assassin Brotherhood was still growing, they will come in conflict with the Romans. With the release of The Hidden Ones, a bran-new storyline will be added to the game as well as the new Sinai region in the map. Bayek will also get some outfit and weapons too.

Even though the expansion is set afterwards the main game, you can just start with The Hidden Ones at any point. However, it will be well advised for players to reach at least level 40. This DLC will help you reach up to level 45 so that Bayek can further push his limits as he goes. Four Legendary weapons and couple of other non-Legendary weapons are also introduced with new mounts. The best thing of this DLC pack is that, if you get back to the main campaign, your progress will follow you there.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

One of Ubisoft's most popular and bankable franchise Assassin’s Creed releases its tenth main title Assassin’s Creed Origins and today sees the release of this action-adventure saga. You will play the game as the protagonist and the very first assassin of their sacred brotherhood named Bayek, who decided to take up the mantle of a protector of Egypt and the predecessor of the long heritage this secret band of warriors will follow.

assassin's creed origins released
Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

Assassin’s Creed Origins is set in a crucial time of Ancient Egypt’s history, when Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy were in a struggle for power and it was gradually reaching towards a bitter end. Unfortunately, the peril doesn't end here. The malevolent Order of the Ancients was trying to manipulate the situation from behind the curtains and a Roman army was just awaiting the borders of the country.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed Origins Launch Trailer

Your assassin Bayek can develop his skill tree to become a Hunter, Seer or a Warrior, with all of them leading into different skill sets. Using poison, tame wild animals and throwing firebombs are what a Seer would do. If you want him to become a fearsome warrior, let him develop his range of melee attacks. And if you want to shoot arrows and distract your enemies with your pet eagle, like we saw in the cinematic trailer, then you take him to the path of a Hunter.

Now, Bayek will have to intervene into the middle and you will be exploring Ancient Egypt along with him on his quest for righteousness. Though many are calling Assassin’s Creed Origins a reboot and some are calling it a soft-reboot but one thing is certain, which is that, it really is a new starting point for sure.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

The more you play and master yourself with your assassin Bayek, your level and ability points will gradually increase. One thing that Assassin’s Creed Origins has no shortage of is that of their many side-missions, story quests and frequent combat situations that will develop Bayek into the legendary fighter he is known as. The game will make you explore the exotic location of Egypt like the Mediterranean rough waters, pyramids of Giza and giant temple at Memphis throughout the desert path.

One very appreciative aspect of the enjoyable side missions and quests are that you can complete them whenever you want and however you please. You have absolute freedom in doing so. In the mean time, you can master your assassin into a strong warrior to take on any upcoming challenge that is thrown at him.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is already out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to play and enjoy the ancient world of the brotherhood that was formed to protect the rights of the oppressed. The game will be seeing its Xbox One X release on November 7. With everything it offers and the improved gameplay it displayed, Assassin’s Creed Origins will truly embrace the spirit of Action RPG.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Launch Trailer

The tenth major title of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Origins is about to be launched within a very few days and everyone is just waiting to jump onto the game as soon as it comes out. Ubisoft decided to delight the eagerly waiting fans with a little treat and so they dropped the launch trailer for the game to give us some more visual spectacle as well as more insight into the game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: Launch Trailer | Legend of the Assassin

We want to talk about what the Assassin’s Creed Origins launch trailer is all about but be sure to check out the trailer titled "Legend of The Assassin" below before that.




By now, almost all of us know that the brotherhood of Assassin’s Creed was originated in ancient Egypt and Bayek is the first in the line of warriors who would start this crusade against the system all by himself. Bayek was simply a revolutionary who wanted to become the aid of the oppressed against the wicked and corrupt folks of that time on Egypt and thus, his mission soon turned him into a renowned assassin.

Since, Assassin’s Creed Origins is a prequel or a soft-reboot rather than a sequel like any other previous games of the series, the gameplay and the setting might seem a little bit different at times. Origins offer you a more expanded open-world in-game environment and there is a skill tree to crank up your abilities to inflict more damage and hit points as you progress. Lots of the element that you will find here are actually how the legends of their Brotherhood grew over time.

As we said earlier, the trailer offers more sneak peak to the game's action and story that you will eventually unfold playing it and provide you a clear idea of how the Assassin Brotherhood came to form in the first place. Some of the action-packed cut-scenes from the game also made it to the trailer as well. Although it would not be like any of the previous Assassin's Creed games but Origins do feature the series' trademark parkour-like movements during the fights.

Releasing worldwide on October 27, Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also see its Xbox One X debut on November 7 with 4K displays to experience enhanced high-definition environments. To embrace the full-action of the RPG, the game actually lets you explore the whole country of Egypt.

Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

In these days, loot boxes are a hot-topic in modern games and there are endless debates online whether or not this trend should continue. Many of today's biggest titles from industry giants like Destiny 2 and Forza 7 are adding this feature to their game and by the looks of it; other companies are also following this. Though most of the time these loot boxes are acquired through some in-game currency, most recent release like Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has changed the idea by letting you spend some real-world cash to make it easier.

So what does that have to do with Assassin's Creed Origins? Well, till date, the Assassin's Creed franchise has been letting us to do some micro-transactions and spend in-game currency to modify our playable character and it was only for decorative purpose. However, in cases like Assassin's Creed Unity, this also meant to make the player somewhat overpowered than normal. The series previously let you buy specific items or gears with its unique virtual currency called 'Helix Credits'.

assassin's creed origins loot box
Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

Judging by the recent gameplay clips found on YouTube, it appears that Ubisoft is joining the wave of loot box trend and that starts with Assassin's Creed Origins. Till now, it seems that the items are only purchasable with in-game currency and it is still unclear if they would allow the players to enjoy this feature to which extent.

As assassin Bayek would explore the locations of ancient Egypt, he will come across to travelling merchant in several places who is a young boy named Reda. The loot boxes found in Nomad's Bazaar shop are called Heka chests and it will contain either a weapon or shield by random. Now, developers still need to disclose or players need to find out if they can acquire these weapons and gears in-game or are they just exclusive to Heka chests. As soon as you purchase the chest for 3000 Drachma, the item within will reveal itself.

The vendor Reda also sells rare Carbon Crystals, which will come in handy for crafting. The in-game e-store features a Mummy costume for Bayek and it is achievable just by playing the game along with the other items of the store. Since one of the previous Assassin's Creed game offered us the opportunity to spend cold-hard cash, we can only speculate if they are going to do that again with their latest release.

Scheduled to launch at October 27, Assassin's Creed Origins will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will be an education mode in Origins that will teach the player more about Egypt of that time.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: Order of the Ancients Trailer

Ubisoft is coming back with Assassin’s Creed Origins in October, 2017 but that's no newsflash! The tenth release of Assassin’s Creed series plants a lot of hope in the hearts of the players, who's been a fan of the series for so long and still disappointed over Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. We've already witnessed the Assassin’s Creed Origins: Cinematic Trailer a short while back and boy, it was truly mesmerizing. Now, there is another one to knock us out of our feet.

assassin's creed origin order of the ancients
Assassin’s Creed Origins: Order of the Ancients Trailer

Since the beginning of the formation of the brotherhood of assassins, there was always a Templar, whom this shadow cult has always opposed throughout the ages. As "Origins" depicts the rise of their killer tribe and the assassin Bayek will be the lead character, I believe it is safe to assume that he is the original Assassin who took matters into his own hands. In this case, he stands out opposing the Order of the Ancients, who are the Templars here.

Witness the rise of the Order of the Ancients in this newest Assassin’s Creed Origins trailer before we go deep.




Now, this is nowhere mentioned directly suggested in the trailer but given the fact that this is the starting of all that created the Assassin’s Creed, Order of the Ancients are the true ancestors of Templar groups that originated in ancient Egypt.

Just like the Templars, the Order of the Ancients is a group of people in power who would change and manipulate various historical events as they see fit. They worked secretly, had political influence and even controlled the Pharaohs. These made them a pretty formidable opposing force to be reckoned with.

As both Bayek and the Order of the Ancients are the forefathers of today's Assassin’s Creed and the Templars, it was natural that they would come into conflict and the assassin would pick up his weapon to fight against this ruthless oppressor. The trailer also gives a small glimpse at the game’s naval combat and finally ends with Bayek encountering an oncoming elephant.

On October 27, PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed Origins will be out worldwide and you can take the role of assassin Bayek to go on a journey into the open-world environment of Egypt to hunt down his targets.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

The producer and the mastermind behind the most recent animated Castlevania TV Series on Netflix, Adi Shankar, have recently announced his upcoming project that he took. He declares that fans should be anticipating an anime adaption of the ever popular Assassin’s Creed. Though there was no confirmation of any sort from Ubisoft officials, much of the news had come from one of Adi Shankar’s recent post on Facebook, where he briefly told us about his new project.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

According to the post, Shankar is quite happy to announce that his new project, Assassin’s Creed anime series. He continues by telling us how he thought it would be almost impossible or perhaps unimaginable that he could take the world of Assassin's Creed to another level. Shankar emphasizes on following your passion regardless of what others' says.



While this is an important step in moving Ubisoft's popular franchise to another level, it is clear that this is not the first time that the series has tried to transcend its video game world. In 2016, Michael Fassbender was picked as the major character Callum Lynch in the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, where he revisited his ancestor’s memories to discover the location of the Apple of Eden.

Many people believed the film didn’t really do well yet it projected the fact that the series had potentials of working outside the video game and perhaps Adi Shankar should consider this in the new anime series. The series is included in Ubisoft Motion Pictures slate alongside a Splinter Cell movie adaptation starring Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal starrer The Division movie.

Shankar is quite famous for his many notable works as executive producer in Dredd, Lone Survivor etc. Apart from that, he is a content creator, a notable gamer and a staunch fan of the Assassin’s Creed. Although he never disclosed anything, not a single character, settings or even a release date apart from the fact that he has been asked to create an original story by Ubisoft. Fans still expect a huge surprise from his involvement to the project.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

Developer studio Ubisoft has finally unveiled its brand-new project which is Assassin’s Creed TV Series to expand their already popular franchise even further. Aymar Azazia, Assassin’s Creed head of content, shares this info at the Reddit AMA session. However, he has chosen to refrain from disclosing any other details about the series beforehand. Even while he chose to make the details a secret, Azaizia only promises to deliver the fans nothing but the best.

It is clear that an Assassin’s Creed TV show has, for now, not been formally announced. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, said that he had a formal talk with Netflix for an Assassin’s Creed TV series.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

As for now, it seems the Assassin’s Creed TV show would perhaps be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures; Ubisoft’s TV and motion picture division. Ubisoft Motion Picture has previously produced the Nickelodeon TV show Rabbids Invasion as well as the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, which came out in December 2016, starring actor Michael Fassbender. Also, as a major hint on the Assassin’s Creed TV show, Ubisoft is on the move on Assassin’s Creed sequel.

In the hope of getting more details, during AMA, Azaizia was interviewed about the new rumored Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Empire, about which, Azaizia gave no significant node but it will presumably be set to have its setting in Egypt and a release date is set for later this year. Well, we can only assume that as Ubisoft did not release any major game title in 2016. Now, it is clear that Ubisoft’s cross media has finally tied up unto the task of expanding Assassin’s Creed franchise with a TV adaptation of the popular video game series.
