1) Berserker


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


This first capture comes from @calisarah1998 over on Twitter.


First up this week we have a capture of Eivor deep in thought. This is a powerful photo depicting the Viking theme of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There are true Ragnar/Norseman vibes about this capture.


Checkout the full tweet below to see some impressive editing skills from @calisarah1998.

I love how the darker colour tones and the cool haircut/tattoos all add to the story of a Viking contemplating battle.

2) Reflections


Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity


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


In this next image we head to Assassin’s Creed Unity, the game of choice this week for the AC15 celebrations.


It is such a shame that Unity does not have a photo mode. That being said, you would not know it judging by the shots that are in this selection. This stunning photo, which is part of a glorious set by @Amaya_Nocturna, really shows off the beauty of buildings. I adore the use of light bursting through the glass and settling on Arno. A real Assassin’s Creed photo.

3) The Kassandra Braid


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


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

Photo number three really caught my eye due to the different perspective. Where portraits of the protagonist are usually from the front or the side, this one gives you a birds eye view aspect as seen by the player.

 

What I admire is how @MoonsDonuts has managed to showcase Kassandra’s amazing hairstyle. In addition we get a great look at the spear, quiver, bow and arrows. A true Misthios pose, beware of this warrior’s fury.

4) The Lonely Viking


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP number four comes from @punkncreed over on Twitter.


What I love about photo number four is the peaceful simplicity. A capture that very much symbolises
the start of Eivor’s journey. The sun poking out from behind the mountain gives off Origins vibes, yet
the cold colours say otherwise.

 

Great use of the camera angle adds scale to the shot. You just know there are some gold icons on that mountain which need collecting.

5) Paris


Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity


The final capture of the week comes from @Subject_72 a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP
Twitter Community.


I thought it only right that we returned to Unity for the final capture of the week. Once again this photo is from a brilliant selection and it was difficult to choose just one for this showcase. I picked this image due to the level of detail and French feel.

 

Arno looks iconic in his classic dark blue Assassin’s outfit, watching out over the city. There are some excellent details on the buildings that just make Paris feel alive. I can’t wrap up without mentioning the exceptional Statue of Liberty, a fine addition to this game.
