First released in 2007, Assassin’s Creed blended historical fiction with futuristic sci-fi elements and remarkable stealth mechanics, making it a truly revolutionary game. Using a device called the Animus to travel into bodily memories of his ancestor’s lives, the player character becomes a crucial figure in the ancient rivalry between the Assassins and the Knights Templar. The player uses a blend of stealth and free-running to explore historical eras and search for Pieces of Eden—powerful artifacts that can prevent the apocalypse and unite humanity.

With the studio releasing around one game a year, the Assassin’s Creed series has had ups and downs in its critical reception, but has been very well-received overall—including consistent high praise for its visuals and unique story. Ubisoft hopes to continue releasing games in the series up through Assassin’s Creed X at least, and already has an ending in mind. The series has made a lasting impact on how stealth mechanics and free running are implemented in an open-world setting, and will continue to entertain gamers for years to come.
