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



Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

VP Artist: @JPGphotogame

“Spartans, ready your breakfast and eat hardy, for tonight we dine in hell.” How could you not think of the movie 300 when looking at this capture? The ambience of the shot is fully in keeping with the movie aesthetic. The lighting is so moody and the stance imposing, Alexios looks ready for battle here. I really liked how you could mix up your play style in Odyssey, adding variety to the game. An excellent warrior shot that is worthy of its place in the weekly showcase.


Wonder Women

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

VP Artist: @WallyDaGreat66

Sticking with Odyssey and the movie ties ins, how about this Kassandra shot that spectacularly gives of Wonder Women vibes. It’s a beautifully taken capture that really pops due to the excellent depth of field. The colour tones here are perfectly matched allowing Kassandra to shine with her bow. Of all the Assassin’s Creed leads, you can see why Kassandra is so well loved. Incredible photography from Wally. 


In the Mist

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


It is not easy getting good Longship shots in Valhalla but this one is a bit of a gem. Vikings appearing from the mist is symbolic in many pieces of media regarding their exploits. I think this capture is a great example of this. What I love about this shot is the sunlight and the shadows it is producing on the hull. Likewise that reflection and ripple in the water looks so good. Brilliant capture that fulfils the Viking brief.

The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week: Judge: Michael Smith

What I love about this particular image is the personality of the player in the longship customization. With so many options, each player could have their own taste presented in what is also a fantastic image that really shows the style of AC Valhalla.


Saxon or Dane

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP Artist: @ccf_photomode

This week’s #Thorsday shot had to be this one. The Carolingian armour is one of the best looking sets in the game but also leads to a conflict of faith. I do like the way Eivor embraces both sets of Gods, how her time in England meant that she was divided but ultimately took lands so that they could be for both Saxon and Dane. This shot is so atmospheric, it creates a real sense of mystery. The dark background really allows the armour to shine, especially that cross. Is Eivor embracing the Saxon ways or is she infiltrating their ranks, either way this is a magnificent shot.


Miss Frye

Game: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

VP Artist: @MissEvieFrye

We end this week’s showcase with a delightful shot of Evie. Whenever I see captures from Syndicate or Unity I get jealous that console players don’t have a photo-mode. This is an excellent portrait of an underappreciated gem in the Assassin’s Creed world. I adore the lighting here, especially as it highlights that excellent expression on her face. As Evie once said “Freeing future generations from a city ruled by Templars”


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!
