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) Burning Sands

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

Photo number one this week is all about the colour. I am loving the deep red of the sand and the purple in the sky.


The hero under a shadow walking away from his last mission gives me endgame vibes. It is as if Bayek has fulfilled his destiny and is walking off into the sunset. Such great use of lighting and colour.


2) Arno the Assassin

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

Photo number two comes from @babidk1 over on Twitter.

I picked this capture due to the mood, as it has such an Assassin feel to it. You get a real sense of ‘we work in the dark to serve the light’ from this. I love how Arno is on what looks like a Sync point watching over his city. My eye is always drawn to the lighting on the tower, it just looks so mysterious.


3) Traveller

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

This capture is really cool. What an array of detail and colour amongst a sandy desert.


I must admit I have played Origins many times and I do not remember this outfit. Bayek and his camel are very much coordinated in this shot. I am definitely getting Geralt and Roach vibes here, incredible shot.


4) On Point

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

VP number four comes from @juanmawl using the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture hashtag on Twitter.

Photo number four brings me right back to the launch trailer of Assassins Creed Origins. Bayek atop a Pyramid looking out across the sun-drenched desert.


The standout here for me is the positioning of this capture, as it is lined up so well. I am also a fan of Senu circling Bayek on the Pyramid. 


5) The Norse Medjay 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The final capture of the week comes from @kingforever008 over at ACFirstCiv Community.

I cannot quite make out how this shot was taken but it seems like Eivor is mid leap to me. It is great how Assassins Creed Valhalla paid homage to Origins throughout the game.


Eivor looks awesome in the Egyptian Armour, giving off real Assassin vibes. Great positioning to have Eivor’s eyes covered by the hood, as it adds to the intrigue.  


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.
