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) Silhouette 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

A moody shot to get us started this week. This is an impeccable silhouette of Bayek scouring the lands in search of The Order. The strong golden background really brings the capture together with the sun but a speck in the background. I feel Assassin’s Creed Origins really lends itself to this type of shot, truly magnificent.


2) Writings on the Wall

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Photo number two comes from @G_Assassin90 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community. 

A slightly different capture next as we see some incredible writings. To quote Bayek ‘Ancient writings from the Old Kingdom’ perfectly sum up this shot. In fact this photo really does remind me of promotional material for Assassin’s Creed Origins. It also look very similar to the loading screen in the game. I would love to see it translated.


3) Cleopatra’s Reign 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

Photo number three is a beautiful story board of Cleopatra. A pivotal character in the game, I find this capture a stunning representation of her. I admire the shots of the pyramids so elegant, especially the one with the two tips.


Then of course the Queen herself, such a strong character, I assume these shots were captured in the Discovery tour. 


4) Senu

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

VP number four comes from @G_G_snaps over on Twitter.  

I love this shot, Senu is my favourite companion and she is just such a graceful bird. The position of Senu here is incredible. The details are so intricate, I think the colour tones really make her stand out.


Having Senu in the game really adds so much in terms of gameplay and photo opportunities, it is great to see her get the lime light by herself for once.  


5) Bayek of Siwa

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

The final capture of the week comes from @horace0816 over on Twitter.

This is one of my favourite Assassin’s Creed captures ever. The mix of black background and a sprinkling of light across Bayek’s hood make for a menacing feel. The capture really showcase the immense detail of Bayek in his classic outfit.


There is great mystery in this shot, no more so than the lack of light on Bayek’s face. He is most definitely waiting in the shadows to………….


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.
