Ubisoft Get Set To Celebrate 15 Years of Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft To Release The Making of Assassin’s Creed: 15th Anniversary Edition Book

It’s incredible to think that fifteen years ago, the first Assassin’s Creed title launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The game quickly became vastly popular, leading to numerous sequels, meaning that Assassin’s Creed is now one of Ubisoft’s top-selling game franchises. And, to mark the occasion, the game developer is celebrating the series’ 15th anniversary with a new book, The Making of Assassin’s Creed: 15th Anniversary Edition.

Ubisoft is partnering with Dark Horse Comics to publish the book which will offer fans an inside look at the process of creating the popular franchise. The Making of Assassin’s Creed: 15th Anniversary Edition is a large-format tome featuring full-colour artwork from throughout the franchise’s 15 years of development.  Written by Alex Calvin, the book also features interviews with some of the game’s creators. 

The Assassin’s Creed series explained

The Assassin’s Creed franchise follows the feud between the ancient orders of the Assassins and the Templars. Players take on the role of various Assassins through different time periods throughout the series. The latest game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, lets players take on the role of a Viking assassin establishing a new colony in England.

Dice one, Ubisoft. There’s already a physical Orlog inspired table top game

In April, Hatchet games released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Orlog, a physical version of the video game’s popular minigame. Additionally, the next in the series, upcoming title, Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in 9th century Baghdad and is set to release in 2023.

Both a standard and deluxe edition of the book will be available for purchase. The Deluxe edition offers a protective slipcase, exclusive cover design and a folio with two high-quality lithograph prints. Releasing on June 20, 2023, in bookstores and on June 21, 2023, in comic shops, the standard edition will retail for $49.99 while the deluxe edition will cost $99.99.
