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) Berserker

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

This first capture comes from @calisarah1998 over on Twitter.

First up this week we have a capture of Eivor deep in thought. This is a powerful photo depicting the Viking theme of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There are true Ragnar/Norseman vibes about this capture.

Checkout the full tweet below to see some impressive editing skills from @calisarah1998.

I love how the darker colour tones and the cool haircut/tattoos all add to the story of a Viking contemplating battle.

2) Reflections

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

Photo number two comes from @Amaya_Nocturna a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP TwitterCommunity.

In this next image we head to Assassin’s Creed Unity, the game of choice this week for the AC15 celebrations.

It is such a shame that Unity does not have a photo mode. That being said, you would not know it judging by the shots that are in this selection. This stunning photo, which is part of a glorious set by @Amaya_Nocturna, really shows off the beauty of buildings. I adore the use of light bursting through the glass and settling on Arno. A real Assassin’s Creed photo.

3) The Kassandra Braid

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

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

Photo number three really caught my eye due to the different perspective. Where portraits of the protagonist are usually from the front or the side, this one gives you a birds eye view aspect as seen by the player.


What I admire is how @MoonsDonuts has managed to showcase Kassandra’s amazing hairstyle. In addition we get a great look at the spear, quiver, bow and arrows. A true Misthios pose, beware of this warrior’s fury.


4) The Lonely Viking

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @punkncreed over on Twitter.

What I love about photo number four is the peaceful simplicity. A capture that very much symbolisesthe start of Eivor’s journey. The sun poking out from behind the mountain gives off Origins vibes, yet the cold colours say otherwise.


Great use of the camera angle adds scale to the shot. You just know there are some gold icons on that mountain which need collecting.


5) Paris

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

The final capture of the week comes from @Subject_72 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VPTwitter Community.

I thought it only right that we returned to Unity for the final capture of the week. Once again this photo is from a brilliant selection and it was difficult to choose just one for this showcase. I picked this image due to the level of detail and French feel.


Arno looks iconic in his classic dark blue Assassin’s outfit, watching out over the city. There are some excellent details on the buildings that just make Paris feel alive. I can’t wrap up without mentioning the exceptional Statue of Liberty, a fine addition to this game.
