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) Goddess 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

This week’s first capture comes from @dpruttz_vp a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community. 

First up this week is a shot of Kassandra that feels completely out of place. I always expect to see bright sunlit captures from Odyssey. This however is a stunning shot that could easily be from snowy Norway.


The use of white and gold is so striking, and the depth of field is perfect. I get the feel that someone is about to challenge our Misthios here.   


2) Havi

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Photo number two comes from @wo1fx7 over on Twitter. 

I think photo number two is the sort of portrait we all strive to achieve. It has unbelievable lighting, perfectly shining across Havi’s hood. The moody background adds to the foreboding feel of this Norse God.


Credit has to be given for using that beard and avoiding clipping issues that can so easily destroy a shot. What I like the most is how this capture shows the amazing detail of that armour set, magnificent virtual photography.  


3) Home

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

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

Home is most definitely where the heart is and there is an abundance of heart in this capture. I feel like this shot is so creative, very outside of the box thinking. I actually cannot remember seeing this location in the game.


I love the great touches in this photo, Ikaros circling the island, the ripples from the sea and the gorgeous white sand. Weirdly the whole thing makes me think of an iced gingerbread biscuit. This truly is a beautiful shot.


4) Ulster

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @TheGamingNurseX a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community. 

This moody capture is everything Valhalla is about. The wandering warrior, travelling across England and Ireland with dark clouds overhead. In search of the order who are hidden within enemy strongholds.


It’s the little things that make this photo so remarkable, having the hood up showcases that excellent design on the back. The darkness around the edges which turns a simple tree into something more sinister. An awesome storytelling capture.


5) Siwa

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

The final capture of the week comes from @KayJay1718 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community. 

Will Siwa ever know peace? Well from this capture you would never think there was anything else. This is saturation used to perfection, it showcases the desert and the palm trees in such a remarkable way. Bayek’s positioning is great, just emerging from the water. It’s fantastic that the birds have been captured in the sky adding to the feel. The star of the shot has to be the reflections. It is mirror imaginary at its absolute best.
