The Ones Who Came Before Assassin's Creed Fan Community was created on the 10th August 2014
as a place for AC fans to share their passion for
We originally focused on sharing theories with the Community, but we now aim to provide interesting opportunities, news and content for our fanbase.
Although the franchise has changed dramatically over
the last five years, our passion for the games and the
community has remained.
We have always done our best to share community content on our social media channels, with campaigns such as Community Corner highlighting the talent and achievements of the fanbase.
Our goal for 2019 was to launch two major projects
which had never been done before. An Assassin's Creed fan magazine, and a Partnership Program.
You can find more information on The Animus Archives and The AC Partnership Program here.

The AC Partnership Program
The AC Partnership Program is a community initiative created by The Ones Who Came Before which aims to promote and share content. The program is a great way for content creators to gain recognition for their work within the community, and expand to a wider audience.
You can learn more about the AC Partnership Program and our members here.
Back in August of 2014, The Ones Who Came Before was established as a place to host the theories of community member Col_96.
The Assassin's Creed franchise has a lot of unanswered questions, so an AC Community was the perfect space to share ideas and potential future plot lines.
Caroline (who has since departed the team) was brought on board to boost the profile of our community, and worked to create opportunities for our small group.
We were initially affiliated with Your Assassin's Creed Fix (no longer in existence) and The Lore Pages of Assassin's Creed (now The Codex), which helped us to gain a small following.
Towards the end of 2015, two more community members, Irakli and Sofija joined the team.
In 2016, Col was selected as a Ubisoft Star Player, and attended Gamescom in Cologne.
The same year, we joined forces with UbiCentral, a partnership which created a number of opportunities for the community such as giveaways, videos and articles.
in 2017, Sofija was selected as a Ubisoft Star Player, andattended Gamescom.
Also that year, Graphic Designer Irakli rebooted our graphics, and created our iconic Assassin Hood logo.
In 2018, Irakli was selected as a Ubisoft Star Player and attended Gamescom.
Towards the end of 2018, Ashlea joined the team as Editor, and reviews all of our work before publishing.
