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) Ancient Egypt

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

After watching Moon Knight this week I had to pick this one. A great capture of Bayek doing a bit of Tomb Raiding. I love the colours and the lighting in this shot.


The warm glow of the torch guiding Bayek through the darkness, whilst being watched by the gods is very cool. I really miss exploring these wonderfully detailed tombs. 


2) Easter Celebrations

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Photo number two comes from @NoviKaiba23 over on Twitter.

A topical shot this week after the release of the Ostara event in Valhalla. The best part of each festival is how the environment changes to fit the theme.


This capture sums up Easter for me. The details on the flowers and the pole really bring this shot to life. Eivor also looks very cool with the hood and cloak up amongst the guests.


3) Into The Fire

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

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

A leap of faith into what looks like a Volcano is my third pick for the week. This is such an eye catching picture with the molten lava bubbling below a diving Kassandra.


For me, this capture brings the old and the new together in one shot. I would love to know what happens next. 


4) Poppy Field

 ​Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @FlyingTrilobite over at ACFirstCiv Community.

This shot immediately caught my attention when it was posted in our Twitter VP Community. The Poppies are so vibrant and I love the positioning of the capture. I like how Eivor is stood to the side admiring the beauty of the flowers. Valhalla can be quite a gloomy game but if you find the right spot you can create some amazing pictures like this.


5) Deep in Thought

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

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

This is a stunning portrait of Eivor from the recent Ragnarok expansion. Everything just works here, I like the hairstyle and beard combo. The tattoos and the missing eye really give off that Norse feel.


The armour is remarkable, very fitting of the mythical setting. The sepia toning of this shot is the winner for me, as it just gives off such a historic feel. 


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.
