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: Assassin’s Creed


The Legend of Siwa

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

VP Artist: @PodToGo

“Let me tell you of him. The legend of Siwa. The shadow who is Bayek”

The journey from Medjay to Hidden One is something I will always look back on with great satisfaction. For mem Origins fills the brief of its title and delivers us the beginning of the Creed. This capture exemplifies Bayek and the turbulent time he endured to become an Assassin. I really like the alignment of this shot, and the way it encapsulates the Egyptian feel. I love that Bayek is in the Hidden Ones outfit and that moon peeking out behind the pyramid is sensational.

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week selected by @Gargudon

''Brilliantly framed, beautifully filtered and colourgraded, and with a very certain cinematic vibe to it. This shot is perfectly capturing Bayek's lethality, stealthiness and overall badass-ness.''


Alfred the Great

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


“The heathen cares only for personal gain”

How could I not include this shot in the weekly selection? The man who saved England and who does not feature in the virtual photography world nearly enough. An excellently handled adversary in Valhalla who just lacked a bit more screen time. NIKOOO has managed to capture him beautifully in both posture and surroundings. The light shining through the stain glass window is both incredible and poignant, given Alfred’s devotion to God. 



Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


“The Lizard. The priest who cursed Memphis”


Whenever I see this set it always reminds of the Lizard questline. He wears a very similar attire to this, and for good reason. The Lizard and his regime in Memphis is despicable, but also what you would expect from a member of the Order of the Ancients. This capture is so menacing, if Bayek is going for the Batman scare factor then he is on to a winner. Perfect use of depth of field function to showcase the magnificently detailed mask. I would not want to come face to face with Bayek wearing this.

Beautiful England

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP Artist: @cop_filip

“The Land is my Church”


This beautifully taken shot sums up why I adore riding around with Eivor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It reminds me of the art prints you could get with the collector’s edition. I am really loving the autumnal feel of this capture, with the patches of snow this surely must have been taken in the Northern part of the game. The Church appearing from behind the trees is quite breath-taking. For a game that tells the story of a Viking raider this picture is so serene.


The Cyclops

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

VP Artist: @horace0816

“Did he call you Cyclops? Did he hurt your feelings?”

What a spectacular action shot to end this week’s selection. These boss battles were a lot trickier than the ones in Origins. Although not always loved by the fans they are great showpiece events. The capture impeccably catches Kassandra at the feet of the beast, trying not to be wiped out by his massive club. Great timing to achieve this, especially with both characters in motion. I am liking the teal colour of the water and the vapour rising off the beast's back. Be sure to check the whole set as they are all as polished as this one.

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!
