Welcome to the weekly virtual photography roundup hosted by Aaron Young from The AC Partnership Program.


Every week I will be picking our top 5 favourite Assassin’s Creed shots and showcasing them on The Ones Who Came Before website, in order to promote virtual photography and talented content creators within the community.  


Aaron is a keen virtual photographer and loves to post his journeys through Assassin’s Creed on Twitter.

Keep an eye on the site as more weekly shots are added, we are looking for captures across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.


This week’s theme: Vikings

 

A Journey Ends


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @Amaya_Nocturna


Platform: PS5



A beautiful silhouette to start this week’s showcase. I love the lighting of this capture and how Eivor is just wandering off into the unknown. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one epic journey from start to finish. I feel that this shot would be a perfect send off for the game. We never fully find out what happens to our Norse Viking, but I like to think the journey continues and destiny is all.

 

Vinland Attire


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @Majdulf47



Eivor’s adventures finally take her to Vinland in search of Gorm as she seeks vengeance for her family. One of the best things to come out of that section of the game is the armour set. This is such an intense but beautifully taken shot of her. I admire the level of detail on the headdress, with the depth of field proving invaluable at amplifying every small element. It is true though that revenge will not bring you peace.

 

Fortress


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @FrameHoldPhotos



Photo number three this week is a brave warrior looking over her lands. Every lord is the hero of their own songs, and I am getting real Uhtred vibes from this shot. It is a shame we never obtain a fortress for Eivor in Valhalla. The game is full of interesting buildings, and it would have been nice to call one home. I have tried getting shots like this before and it isn’t the easiest. Kudos to Frame Hold for pulling it off.



The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week: Judge: Michael Smith (TOWCB Core Team)


This is a shot that took planning. Having ran through the stone castles and fortresses for hours in Valhalla, taking an image like this that gives the game form of Eivor an immersive appearance in her environment. It could be a scene from the cinematics but shows the quality of the game world in action.

 

Fate


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @Rambo_590



I love this shot for many reasons but mostly as it is thought provoking. For me this capture represents destiny. I adore how Eivor is walking through the reeds with her hand spread out. The sunlight reflecting off the water is magical. The truth of a man lies not in the lands of his birth but in his heart. Eivor and Guthrum’s victory over Alfred is only the start of this epic time in history and the formation of England.

 

Weekly Vili


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @Yamis_Art



We end this week with a cult hero from Valhalla. Many fans adore this Drengr but wished his story had been fleshed out some more. Vili is memorable though and having Eivor meet an old friend and advise them that fear is within all of us, but also strength makes for a fitting arc. I admire the deepness of colour and the excellent positioning of the shot. Vili looks ready for battle, but is he ready to be Jarl.

 

And that sums it up for this week’s Assassin’s Creed virtual photography recap list!


Thank you for checking out this week’s photo collection. This would not be possible without the virtual photographers out there so a huge thanks to them. Until next week keep those shots coming in!
