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 the brand.

We originally focused on sharing theories with the Community, but we now aim to provide interesting opportunities, news and content for our 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.

Although the franchise has changed dramatically over the last nine 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.
