The Assassin’s Creed video game series is unquestionably one of the biggest and most popular in today’s market, and it is also one of Ubisoft’s most recognizable products.

Because the series seemed to languish for years following its initial popularity, it has been the subject of much debate.

A total of twenty games have been released in the franchise’s ten-year history.

In anticipation of the upcoming installment, we’ve compiled a list of all of the Assassin’s Creed video games to date, along with brief summaries of each.

Main Series

The main series consists of Assassin’s Creed games for PC and major consoles that are considered canonical.

All Assassin's Creed Games In Order

Assassin’s Creed

Due out on Thursday, 11/13/2007

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One

The first Assassin’s Creed game was groundbreaking at the time it was released. It used genetic memory as a way to transport us back to the Middle Ages in the Middle East, a novel approach to storytelling. As an assassin named Altair ibn La-Ahad, we’ll be slicing and dicing our way through medieval metropolises.

Anyone who has played the original game would agree that it gradually becomes tedious despite how magnificent everything initially appeared to be. First, the first Assassin’s Creed game would serve as the foundation for the rest of the series. Second, the first Assassin’s Creed game would make further use of the principles it established.

Assassin’s Creed II

Arrival on shelves: 17th Nov. 2009

PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Mac OS X are all included in this survey.

The events of Assassin’s Creed II take place directly after those of the original game’s contemporary era. For a period like Renaissance-era Italy, it’s a huge leap forward in terms of what the player can accomplish.

Aside from the fact that it is a well-known and popular game, Assassin’s Creed II is a standout. Ezio Auditore da Firenze, one of the most lovable and known Assassin’s Creed heroes, was introduced in this game, but it also made significant modifications to the gameplay, making it more engaging.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

The release date has been set for Friday, November 16th, 2010.

PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Mac OS X are all included in this survey.

A continuation of Ezio’s story, Brotherhood does not change much from Assassin’s Creed II in terms of gameplay mechanics. There are no new features in this game, but rather new management systems that allow the user to recruit and manage a team of assassins. As a result, they can be summoned for assistance in combat or sent on missions that can bring various prizes.

Other than that, the fighting was slightly tweaked to improve fluidity. As a result, Brotherhood was the first Assassin’s Creed game to have competitive multiplayer modes.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

November 15, 2011 is the release date.

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Ezio’s story concludes in Revelations, which takes place in Istanbul, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, rather than the Italian cities of Firenze and Rome. However, the essential gameplay principles were not altered in any significant way.

Only the “hookblade,” which allowed players to zipline across the city, and a tower defense minigame were major additions. Because of its lackluster gameplay, it’s hard to say that Revelations is an essential part of the franchise – unless you’re a fan of the original game and want to see how Ezio’s narrative ends.

Assassin’s Creed III

Scheduled for release on the 30th of October, 2012.

Wii U, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows are all supported platforms.

An even more minor chronological shift is made in the third installment of the Assassin’s Creed series. The American Revolutionary War is the setting for this time around. We take on the role of Ratonhnhaké:ton, a Native American who decides to go by the alias Connor in order to fit in with mainstream American culture.

With its focus on Civil War-era America’s untamed countryside, the game’s free-running features have been tweaked accordingly. It also introduced weather and animal hunting, as well as naval exploration and a number of new weapons that had never been seen before.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

October 29, 2013 is the release date.

Gaming consoles include the PS3, PS4, XB1, XB2, PC, and Wii U

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, like its predecessor, is set in the Colonial period, however it takes place some decades earlier. When you play as Edward Kenway, the player adopts his grandfather’s role.

Black Flag places a high value on naval exploration, which is evident from the game’s pirate premise. For the first time in any of the previous games, it takes a more open-world approach.

Apart from the upgradeable ship, assassins’ guild building, and better naval combat, Black Flag didn’t introduce any other important Assassin’s Creed elements.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry

Scheduled for release on Friday, February 25th, 2014

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

In December 2013, Freedom Cry was released as an add-on for Black Flag; however, it was quickly released as a stand-alone title. The expectations were never too high from the beginning, given its initial function.

For the first time in the series, Adéwalé, a former slave who has since become an assassin, serves as the protagonist.

In terms of gameplay and story, Freedom Cry doesn’t offer anything new. Given that it was originally a DLC, this is to be expected. It does, however, introduce a significant deal of new material and some new pieces of gear that assist to distinguish Freedom Cry from Black Flag, if only somewhat.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

November 11, 2014 is the release date for this title.

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Rogue is an older Assassin’s Creed game, the last one to take place in colonial America.

In this game, you play as a Templar rather than an assassin for the first time, and the gameplay has been altered to reflect this. The grenade launcher, for example, gets a lot more attention than other weapons.

There are no major modifications to the main mechanics of Rogue, except from a few new weapons.

The game was first released only on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, then later on the PC in 2014, and lastly on PS4 and Xbox One in 2018 as a remaster.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity

November 11, 2014 is the release date for this title.

Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4 are all supported platforms.

In Unity, Assassin’s Creed returns to its European roots after a brief maritime detour in Black Flag and Rogue. We play as Arno Dorian, an assassin working in Paris during the French Revolution.

The RPG components in Unity were also more prominent than in the prior games, allowing for a larger degree of character customization and play style.

Other than that, it was the first cooperative multiplayer game. It didn’t do much more than just add more weaponry to the main formula. The Phantom Blade, which is effectively a crossbow and the classic Hidden Blade fused into a single weapon, is one of the most prominent examples.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

Scheduled for release on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2015

Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4 are all supported platforms.

In terms of setting, Syndicate moves from the Revolutionary era Paris to the Victorian era London. The Frye twins (Jacob and Evie) are playable throughout the game, making this the first game in the series to include two protagonists.

The only changes to the gameplay are new melee and ranged weapons, while the game’s multiplayer is completely omitted. Ultimately, Syndicate was the last Assassin’s Creed game before Origins brought about a major shift in gameplay.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins

Release date: Saturday, October 7, 2017

Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4 are all supported platforms.

Origins introduced considerable alterations to the franchise, both in terms of setting and gameplay, in order to break the years-long stalemate of the series. By introducing a novel fighting system and role-playing game features, it brings us back to ancient Ptolemaic Egypt.

The inclusion of hitboxes, rather than the paired animation system of the previous games, was a major alteration in the fighting system. As a result of this, the player is able to inflict significant damage on numerous adversaries at the same time. It’s a two-way street, too, because it’s easier for the player to be overwhelmed by several adversaries.

As a result, the fighting in Origins is more dynamic and fluid than in previous games in the series’ canon. Open-world gameplay is also a big part of the game, allowing the player to effortlessly navigate between Egypt’s cities and its natural surroundings.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

October 5, 2018 is the release date.

Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4 are all supported platforms.

Odyssey, a prequel to Origins, was released in late 2018. If you’re a fan of Greek mythology and the Peloponnesian War, this is the game for you; you can play as either the Greeks or the Spartans.

There are two playable protagonists (Alexios and Kassandra), both of whom are mercenaries and direct descendants of none other than King Leonidas himself.

Origins-style gameplay continues, with RPG features, a vast variety of weapons, and an expansive open world to explore. Additionally, naval warfare is making a comeback, just like it was previously seen in Black Flag and Rogue.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Scheduled for release on 10th November 2020

Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One X/S, Stadia, and Windows 10

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, due out in November 2020 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will transport players from ancient Greece to the 9th century AD. Anglo-Saxon and Viking kingdoms clashed during the British invasion of Britain. Players assume control of a Viking named Eivor, who has many more personalization options than previous heroes.

In terms of gameplay, Valhalla essentially builds on the foundations laid down in Origins and Odyssey, albeit with an increased emphasis on stealth, a few small tweaks, and a few new, historically accurate weaponry like flails and greatswords.

All of this helps to keep things interesting over time in Valhalla because of its broad variety of enemies with diverse skills as well as its stronger AI.


In the second section, we’ll explore the Assassin’s Creed games that aren’t canon (spin-off video games).

Because these games are designed primarily for handheld consoles and/or smartphones, they tend to be simpler and smaller in scope.

Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles

February 5, 2008 was the release date.

Supported Platforms: Nintendo DS; Android; iOS; webOS; Symbian; Jave ME; Windows Phone 7;

This is the first of the minor spin-offs of the main series. There are no direct connections between this game and the original Assassin’s Creed. If you’ve ever played any of the previous games in the series, you’ll know that they’ve all been side-scrolling, and this one is no exception.

Besides the DS, the game was available on a variety of mobile operating systems, such as Apple’s iOS and Android, Nokia’s Symbian, Microsoft’s Windows Phone, and Java ME. LG’s smart TVs employ webOS, a Linux-based operating system that may be used with this app.

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines

Arrival on shelves: 17th Nov. 2009

Including PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita

Altair’s Chronicles was released nearly two years before Bloodlines, which was created solely for the PlayStation Portable. Bloodlines was able to keep more faithful to the Assassin’s Creed formula than Altair’s Chronicles was because of Sony’s portable console’s more capable technology. The battle system was mostly carried over from the original game.

Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery

Arrival on shelves: 17th Nov. 2009

Nintendo DS, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

Discovery was a 2.5D side-scroller like Altair’s Chronicles that was released alongside Assassin’s Creed II. Keeping that in mind, the game’s mechanics were rather simple, but they were effectively translated to a 2.5D setting. The iOS version of the game was published several months after the DS version.

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation

Scheduled for release on the 30th of October, 2012.

PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation Vita are all supported platforms.

Unlike Discovery, Liberation wasn’t released as a standalone title. There were no handheld Assassin’s Creed games before Liberation, which was produced on the PS Vita and was the closest thing we had to a full-fledged game. The series’ fluid combat system and open-world environment were carried over, as were the improved graphics.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD was released two years after the original release of Liberation on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows. For starters, the game’s visuals have seen a significant upgrade, and it has been better optimized for new platforms.

In March 2019, Assassin’s Creed Liberation was remastered and released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Assassin’s Creed: Pirates

December 5, 2013 is the release date.

Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android

Soon after the release of Black Flag, a mobile game called Assassin’s Creed: Pirates was created for iOS and Android devices. So it was a fairly straightforward game that focused on ship combat in real time. Eventually, it was taken down from the App Store and Google Play.

Assassin’s Creed Identity

The 25th of February, 2016 is the scheduled release date.

Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android

Identity, a second mobile game, was first released on Apple’s iOS platform before being released on Android three months later. Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood take place in Renaissance-era Italy, making this game a throwback to those franchises’ earlier games.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China

The 21st of April, 2015 is the scheduled release date.

Various systems are supported, including the PS4, Xbox One, Windows PCs, and the PS Vita

Three 2.5D platformer games based on the main Assassin’s Creed series will be released in the future. Chronology: China does a fantastic job of transitioning the series from the photorealism genre to a more basic, watercolor-like aesthetic.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India

January 12th, 2016 is the release date

Various systems are supported, including the PS4, Xbox One, Windows PCs, and the PS Vita

India, the second game in the Chronicles series, takes place in the middle of the nineteenth century, amid the battle between the Sikh Empire and the East Indian Company. Despite the more detailed graphics and certain new signature weaponry of that era, the mechanics remain the same.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia

The 9th of February, 2016 is the scheduled release date for this film.

Various systems are supported, including the PS4, Xbox One, Windows PCs, and the PS Vita

With Russia, the Chronicles series comes to an end just one month after India. An Assassin’s Creed game has never gone further back in time than this one does, taking place during the October Revolution in 1918.

Only new weaponry that could be found in that time period have been added to the game, while the graphics have been given a more washed-out look to match the age it portrays.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Arno’s Chronicles

Expected availability: June 2017

Android and iOS

This is a strange title for Assassin’s Creed Unity: Arno’s Chronicles in the series. A simple 2D action-platformer, the game’s key differentiating qualities are that it is fully offline and free of microtransactions at its core. Despite this, it was only played by a small number of individuals, and for good reason.

Only a tiny number of Huawei Honor smartphones were capable of running the game when it was initially launched. A timed exclusive was originally planned, however it never made it to the Play Shop or any other store for that matter.

If you have a Huawei Honor smartphone, you can download the APK and run the game, but the absence of compatibility for later Android versions will likely result in an extremely problematic experience.

Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion

On November 21, 2018, it will be released.

Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android

“Rebellion” is the latest mobile spinoff from “Assassin’s Creed.” It’s free to play. In spite of the fact that it takes place during the Spanish Inquisition, it boasts a wide cast of characters from over the world, including well-known ones like Ezio.

“Chibi” character design is the first time the series has used this style in a game of this type.

Assassin’s Creed is without a doubt one of the most popular and huge video game franchises out today. The series has seen many ups and downs since its inception. Fans and gamers alike seemed to enjoy the most recent version of the game, Valhalla. It is still regarded the best-looking AC game and Ezio trilogy is still the go-to trilogy for AC enthusiasts since they are more invested in Ezio and his story. The Black Flag, on the other hand, is widely regarded as one of the greatest releases of all time.

Assassins and Templars have a long and rich history. Seeing what the franchise has in store for us would be interesting. Make sure to play the entire game from start to finish and in both directions. We’re not lying when we say that. This is going to be one of the best days of your life!
