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) Killer Croc


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

This week’s first capture comes from @G_Assassin90 over on Twitter.

First up in our Assassins Creed Origins special is a super bird’s eye view of a crocodile wading through the water.


I Really like how this shot has the predator partly submerged in the green water. Anyone who’s played Origins knows how deadly these creatures are especially when hiding in the reeds. The eco system in Origins is the best I have seen in a game so far.


2) Egyptian Sunsets

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Photo number two comes from @virtualmiky

This one is a perfect phone wallpaper. I love the positioning of the shot but also the stunning colours. This capture flawlessly shows off the beauty of Assassin’s Creed Origins.


The game maybe almost 5 years old but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. Bayek on top of a pyramid will always be iconic. 


3) Golden Sands

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

This week’s third shot comes from @PodToGo using the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture

For me this shot is just like the promotional material put out by Ubisoft when Assassin’s Creed Origins launched. It was photos like this that got me hyped for the game. I would certainly recommend checking out the full set of shots. The contrast of the bright blue sky and the golden sand is spectacular. 


4) Black & White

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

Time to mix things up with photo number four as we bring in a bit of black and white photography. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in character shots, but the buildings and environment can be just as awesome. I remember this location very well, it was nice how Origins was less repetitive with its buildings. You can see in this shot how people are just living here. It would be easy to mistake this for a real life photo. 


5) Desert Hero

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

The final capture of the week comes from @kingforever008 member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community. 

To close out our first Assassin’s Creed Origins showcase we have a real comic book style shot. I am a big fan of silhouette captures and this one mixed with the vibrant colours looks amazing. The rays from the sun behind Bayek make him feel like an imposing figure. I get real Batman vibes from this almost reminiscent of the Animated Series intro. 


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.
