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) Lighthouse

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

Our first capture this week takes us back to Egypt. A brilliant shot of Bayek pulling off a hero pose between two columns. I really like how panoramic this picture is. The depth of field is perfect here, despite Bayek being the focal point, the lighthouse still shines. I remember infiltrating this enemy base not long ago myself.


2) Egyptian Architecture

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Photo number two comes from @VirtualHedron over on Twitter.

Origins is one of the most beautiful Assassin’s Creed games. For me what sets it apart is the stunning scenery and architecture. This shot is everything I love about exploring the cities of Egypt. There is so much detail here with NPC’s living their lives, lush vegetation, colourful hieroglyphics and a hint of sun bursting through. A fantastic capture, just needs a frame.


3) Arctic Fox

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

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

It seems to be a weekly theme at the moment for me to feature a fox. I enjoyed how Valhalla mixed up the wildlife with the different landscapes/seasons. It definitely looks like these two foxes are friends out on the hunt for some food. What impresses me is the way the fox is leaving a trail, great attention to detail.


4) Daily Contracts 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @PodToGo over on Twitter. 

This is as first for a Reda themed shot. I absolutely love the positioning of this, as it instantly caught my eye. The focus on Eivor showcasing her hair, tattoos and weapon ready for battle is outstanding.


I really like how the band of Saxons are walking into their demise. Extra kudos for featuring the Huldufolk armour such an underrated gem.   


5) Finisher

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The final capture of the week comes from @tn_taurus over at the ACFirstCiv VP Twitter Community.

The final shot for the week is a brutal one. It is always hard for shots like this to stand out amongst the colourful environments and protagonist portraits. However I feel like this very much captures the essence of Valhalla and how dark the story can get. The misty background and the vignette really highlight the finisher. It looks like Eivor hasn’t left anyone alive to tell the tale. 


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.
