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!

1) Gunnar

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

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

First up this week we have Gunnar the Smith of the Raven clan. This may be the first time I have seen a shot of this pivotal character. Voiced by the brilliant Thomas W.Gabrielsson and also known for his role as Guthrum in The Last Kingdom.

 

He is one of my favourite characters to talk to when visiting the settlement. This magnificent shot showcases him brilliantly, the black and white style really amplifying his beard and tattoos. Excellent use of the black background resulting in a perfect portrait.

2) Mythical 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Photo number two comes from @GeeketteAna a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.

Next up we have Kassandra exploring Atlantis from the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC. I must admit I have never played this section of the game, but after seeing @GeeketteAna’s virtual photography I might just give it a go. I really like the colours of this capture, so vibrant and powerful.

 

I love how you can see the waterfall coming through the eyes in the distance. The armour set also links well with the rest of the shot thanks to the white and gold elements. A very fitting photo for the mythical setting.

3) Odin’s Raven

This week’s third shot comes from @NovA1990 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.

Photo number three brings the chill with a nice shot of a raven in the snow. I always like to feature animal photography if I can, and this is the first for a raven. Even though it isn’t the focal point, I do adore the mountains in the background.

 

There is a real haunting feel to this with the dark skies, cold snow and wind swept trees. I believe the shot is in Northumbria as that is the only place with snow in the English part of the game. Either way this Raven looks very happy sat in the snow. As the saying goes Odin’s eyes are everywhere.

4) The Saga Begins
 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

VP number four comes from @reubenblades1 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.

For our penultimate shot this week I thought I would feature this exceptional capture of Eivor and the long ships. The sepia style of this photo makes it so unique, as it is a colour tone not often seen.

 

The attention to detail is amazing, with the use of vignette and depth of field really bringing the shot to life. I love the old vibes of the capture as it feels fitting of the time period. I wonder where Eivor is heading next?

5) Sunset 

Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins

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

The final shot of the week is part of an awesome set entered into the Ubisoft Photo-Mode contest. Be sure to check out the whole selection below. However this photo stood out the most to me due to the jaw dropping positioning.

 

Even with the sun going down you can see so much in this capture. I love the sun setting between the two pyramids, it is just breath-taking. I also like that you can see a third pyramid to the left and the rocky landscape surrounding it. What a beautiful use of colour and shadows to create this perfect sunset.
