Next Assassin’s Creed Comic Goes To World War II, First Details Revealed
Assassin’s Creed is a unique franchise that allows for a wide variety of potential time periods and settings to be explored. As the series’ Assassin Order has existed as far back as Ancient Egypt, the organization’s many incarnations could essentially go anywhere in history to tell of the age-old fight against the Templars. Ubisoft’s next story brings the conflict to an all-new era, with an upcoming Assassin’s Creed comic going back to the time of World War II.
In the new mini-series titled Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies, the story follows protagonist Eddie Gorm, a newly-joined member of the Assassins who is tasked with defeating the Templars before they unleash a devastating atomic weapon. Published by Titan Comics, the two-volume story is written by Guillaume Dorison with art contributed by Jean-Baptise Hostache. A few select pages have been released, showing off the appropriately grim art style of a war-ravaged Europe.
Conspiracies may sound familiar to fans as the two-part Assassin’s Creed comic was originally released back in 2016. The initial time only saw the books released in French, with Titan translating the adventure to English for the new release.
Of course, this isn’t the only comic the globe-trotting stealth series has recently tackled, as the the newest game entry Assassin’s Creed: Origins also adapted a story as part of its massive amount of tie-in media. Titan Comics has also been busy with gaming adaptations featuring the likes of Life Is Strange, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne over the last few months. The first issue of Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies will release on August 1st.
