We here at TOWCB admin team have been overwhelmed by the positive community reaction to the launch of our latest project: Rally the Creed video podcast.




Each episode of Rally the Creed (2023+) will be released in three versions: Video, Audio and Transcript, as to create a more personal experience, and allow for viewers to enjoy the podcast in multiple ways. The second and most important change is host rotation, as we plan on getting different members of TOWCB Team to host each episode.


We hope that this new and exciting structure keeps the podcast fresh, and helps it to stand out from other fan projects. The new series will cover a huge range of topics relating to the Assassin's Creed series, and give a voice to community members.



For some, the podcast will provide the opportunity to step out of the shadows for the first time, and introduce themselves to the community, whilst for others, it becomes a meeting place for long-time fans of the series to discuss all things Assassin's Creed.


In episode #1, Col and Michael from TOWCB Core Team discuss Assassin's Creed Mirage, the new podcast format and choices in Assassin's Creed.

 

Highlights

 

1 - Explaining the new formula.


We kicked off our new podcast by outlining the changes we have made since it's original launch to make it stand out in the community. We are committed to giving Assassin's Creed community members a platform from which they can share their thoughts and feelings, in order to spark meaningful discussions.


Here we see Col from the admin team explaining host rotation and our hopes of creating a social hangout for fans of the franchise.



 

2 - Why Assassin's Creed Mirage needs to be a success


Michael and Col discuss the damaging effects of neglecting a marketing campaign, and the importance for Ubisoft to end the silence regarding Assassin's Creed Mirage and provide clarity on the current status of the game.


 

3 - Assassin's Creed Infinity should look at adding content to older games.


In this snippet, Col discusses the potential of the Assassins' Creed Infinity platform to one day become the home of all things Assassin's Creed, and add content to previously released titles to encourage fans to return and play.


 

4 - Assassin's Creed Mirage needs to return to the roots of Assassin's Creed


Michael outlines the need for Assassin's Creed Mirage to return the series to its roots, in a way that feels authentic and deliberate.


 

5 - Michael pitches the idea of an Assassin's Creed with consequences.


Talking about the future of the series, Michael pitches the idea of choices and their impact upon the world. Should Ubisoft focus on pushing the series forward, adding meaningful decisions that have real repercussions on the game could change the series for the better, making players weigh-up options and think before acting in-game.


 

6 - Swear Word Censoring


We conclude by showcasing our new swear word censoring, which aims to assassinate all cursing in a very on-brand way, courtesy of our video-editor FrameHoldPhotography!


See it in action during this hilarious rampage by Michael listing the many problems he found whilst watching the Halo TV series.



 

Thanks for watching!


We had a ton of fun creating the podcast and we are striving to make it as interesting as possible for fans of the franchise.
