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

Every week, we 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 capture across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.


1) Scenic Shot

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

This week’s first capture comes from @RobbyRose69 over on Twitter.

First up this week is a stunning landscape shot. The scope of this capture is truly breath-taking, it feels as if you can see for miles. I like that this photo captures a lot of the varied environments of Assassin’s Creed Origins.


The crops growing, the ships sailing and the random island in the middle of the water. Then you have the glamour of the pyramids and the desert in the distances. It really is an amazing photo.


2) The Colourful Desert

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Photo number two comes from @UVioletra over on Twitter. 

Following on from the first capture we have some more spectacular environments. I think what is so striking about these are the colours. The final shot in particular has such a great mix of dark and light, especially from that amazing sun bursting over the water.


I think the mix of sand and vegetation is what makes Assassin’s Creed Origins so beautiful. 


3) The Fire Burns

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

This week’s third shot comes from @NovA1990 over on Twitter. 

Photo number three is so striking, I love the simplicity. These are the sort of shots I never really think of doing. The character of the capture is what draws me to it. I really like the tree line in the background with the dark sky.


Obviously the fire is the hero of the shot. I can just imagine Bayek resting here on his travels across the desert in search of the Order.


4) Leaping Assassin

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

VP number four comes from @TektoNickgames over on Twitter.  

This shot actually gave me Ghost of Tsushima vibes. What a fantastic action shot of Aya leaping from ship to ship. I am very impressed by the silhouette against the backdrop of fire rising from the ships below. The temperature and saturation here plays such a pivotal role. It makes me long for an Aya expansion to Assassin’s Creed Origins. 


5) Coast of the Sinai

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

The final capture of the week comes from @flyingfeather_g over on Twitter.

Another magnificent bird’s eye portrait shot to end this week’s selection. I just love how realistic the water looks in this. It is amazing how you can see into the water and rocks below.


I also adore the shadow of the sail in the sand. The birds and the ram on the beach have not gone unnoticed either. This shot reminds me of searching for papyrus rewards, although I usually end up beaching the boat on the sand. 


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.
