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) Excalibur

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

This week’s first capture comes from @drm1969 over on Twitter. 

A great capture of an iconic moment in Valhalla. I like how the light is reflecting off the sword all over the room. Excalibur is not the easiest to obtain in the game and I think Eivor’s face shows it. The Legendary sword of King Arthur is a nice addition to your armoury and can lend itself to some great shots.


2) Boston Harbour

Game: Assassin’s Creed III

Photo number two comes from @_Virtualtourism over on Twitter.

I like to mix it up with locational VP over character shots every now and again. This one of Boston is stunning. The amount of detail captured here is really impressive. It is not easy to achieve decent photos in older games, but this busy dockyard has it all.


3) Arno

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

This week’s third shot comes from @G_Assassin90 over on Twitter.

A black background portrait of Arno, what more could you want. I certainly like how this shot only has a few colours. A classic Assassin pose, this capture would make a great canvas print. If a photo mode was added to the console version of this game, I would 100% return.


4) Paris Protector

Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity

VP number four comes from @VideogameVisual over on Twitter.

This capture for me is Assassin’s Creed Unity in a nutshell. Beautiful buildings, with Arno hanging off a wooden structure. Paris’s silent guardian is so detailed, but what I can never get over is how great crowds look in this game. For me, this picture really benefits from being in a portrait.


5) Moonlight 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

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

A striking final capture from Odyssey. The use of lighting in the shot is captivating. Although the statue is the centre piece, the moon and its vivid glow steals the show.


I also like the mountainside with the building just poking out. The vegetation mixed with the red banners really is the perfect finishing touch.


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!
