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) Pharos

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

This week’s first shot takes us back to Egypt, and one of the most stunning locations in the game. The Lighthouse of Alexandria features fairly early in the story and serves a wonderful viewpoint.


I love the view you get from this shot, especially with the ship sailing away. I really hope a portrait function comes to consoles.


2) Anubis

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Photo number two comes from @G_G_snaps over on Twitter.

Sticking with Origins, and another amazing shot but this time taken during the Trials of the Gods. I actually thought this mini mode in Origins fit the theme of the game brilliantly. It reminds me of the Scarecrow scene in Arkham Asylum.


This is a perfectly timed shot showcasing the amazing detail of Anubis, and the wonderful atmosphere that is created in these fights.


3) The Northman 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

This week’s third shot comes from former AC Partnership Program Member @vikingdad278 over on Twitter.

This capture is a crossover of Valhalla meets The Northman. With sword and axe in hand, Eivor could not look anymore Viking. I have seen a few shots like this since the film’s release, and with the Last Kingdom and Valhalla on Netflix there’s never been a better time to play this game.


Despite the incredible feel of this shot I can’t help but think Lion King. 


4) Lazy Day

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @Yamis_Art over on Twitter.

Photo number four brings a little peace to this showcase. I love the simplicity of this capture, the depth of field lets you know that there are amazing things in the background but on this occasion a sleeping cat is all that matters.


Animals and there behaviours in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are some of the best I have seen. We all needs animal pictures every now and again. 


5) Collection

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The final capture of the week comes from @Jakeste66386991 over on Twitter.

The final shot of the week is a clever one. I do like it when people edit their photos and put them together in one cool photo. I actually thought this capture summed up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla really well.


Eivor with the hood representing the Assassin’s. The Raven (Odin) signifying Vikings/Norse and the cross symbolising the Saxons and Alfred.


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.
