game news Assassin’s Creed: Top 10 Assassinations in the Ubisoft Series
The Ubisoft Home License is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Whoever says Assassin’s Creed says assassination. We invite you back to ten of the most eye-catching assassinations in the series.
One action = one assassination
It’s hard to sort out all the assassinations that the twelve games have given us from the main license. To make it easier, we have therefore decided not to present several assassinations of the same authorship. Note that the following contains spoilers for some important storylines from the Assassin’s Creed games.
Assassin’s Creed – Teacher
Let’s start first with the first licensing effect, Assassin’s Creed. So we find this dear The bird who, after fulfilling his mission to carry out the goals entrusted to him by his master, knows that the latter has betrayed the Brotherhood.. In order to lay his hands on Apple of Eden, he had already joined the Templars. If the Master wants to see the death of some of the Templars, it is not for the benefit of the Brotherhood but to make sure that they are not trying to steal the Apple of Eden. An artifact he once used to hypnotize the people of Masyaf when Altaïr joins him at the end of the game. Then he confronts his former mentor and, after a long fight, decides to kill him. The symbolism of this assassination makes this assassination one of the most important events in the series, and after this event the new guide bird becomes the Brotherhood, a historical figure whose legacy feeds the entire license.
Assassin’s Creed II – Uberto Alberti
The choice was difficult to determine what was the most significant assassination of Ezio’s first steps in the Brotherhood of Assassins in Assassin’s Creed II. We, of course, thought about assassinating that arrogant Vieri de’ Pazzi we loved to silence forever (just like his dad). But our eyes were on Uberto Alberti. After the execution of his father and brothers, Ezio had only one thing left: They find someone who betrayed his father’s trust and made him suffer from his anger. Uberto Alberti was stabbed several times in the chest by someone who had not yet become a murderer, and surrendered before our satisfied eyes. He then follows a sermon from Ezio tinged with aggressiveness and force, ushering in his battle against the Templars: “The Auditore is not dead. I am always here. I ! Ezio! Ezio Auditor! “
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood – Lucy Stillman
This is a little special. First, because you are just a spectator. Second, because it does not take place in the past recreated by Animus but in the present. After finally locating the Apple of Eden, Miles, Lucy, Rebecca, and Sean travel to the secret entrance to the Colosseum in Rome to retrieve it at the end of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Desmond soon begins to have visions of the goddess Juno, a prominent member of those who have been there before, warning him. He still chose to take the Shard of Eden. Immediately, his body no longer belonged to him and stabbed even though he had been his closest ally all this time. This dramatic gesture will allow him to pass through the door and discover the coveted truth. This death is as unexpected as it is important to understanding the whole plot about Civilization I, even if today this assassination still retains a piece of the mystery. This is why it is so wonderful.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – Leandros
Little Ezio has grown up a lot since Assassin’s Creed II. is as The mentor of the Brotherhood of Assassins has been found in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. If he was certainly aging, the most popular license assassin had especially gained charisma and tenacity. Even the wounded, he pursues Leandros, the Knights Templar captain responsible for opening the door of Al-Tayer Bin Lahd’s library in Masyaf. If Leandros isn’t the most striking antagonist in this episode, he’s allowed Ezio to make a great entrance. The tenacity and cold charisma of the old assassin make this assassination one of the most surprising of the trilogy. The tone is set directly for the rest of the episode.
Assassin’s Creed III – Charles Lee
If Charles Lee’s death in Assassin’s Creed III is so amazing, it’s not because it’s pathological, but on the contrary. However, any player who played dear Ratonhnhaké: ton/Connor desperately wanted this Seven Years War veteran to die. A major antagonist of this opus, it intersects with Ratonhnhaké: ton for the first time when the latter is very young. Strangle him for information, the young man Kanien’kehà: ka tribesman and then promises to find him. And that’s fine, because his future position in the Assassins will put him in Lee’s way on many occasions. At last before a weak and submissive man, our murderer will find himself. When he plunges his secret blade into his heart, the satisfaction is not as expected. Killing a man who has already died does not have much taste in the end, despite the chase for several years.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue – Hope Jensen
If there’s one business that has taken an interesting turn, it’s Assassin’s Creed Rogue. He actually embodies Shay Cormac, a former assassin who joined the ranks of the Knights Templar after a tragic accident. from now on, Our man becomes a prolific killer of killers, executing the characters in other works (Adewali, Charles Dorian…) but also his former companions, Liam and Hope. The assassination of the latter is particularly striking. Besides the cheerful vigorous run over the rooftops, the scene of his death is very moving. After her stomach is pierced, Shay expresses regret, sad for having to kill the person who taught her so much. “I trained you in this. You did not disappoint me.” She responds before succumbing to her injuries.
Assassin’s Creed Unity – Charles Gabriel Seifert
If the action of Assassin’s Creed that took place during the French Revolution (Assassin’s Creed Unity) is not really the most appreciated, there is one thing that cannot be excluded from it: His assassination missions are equally satisfying. Among them, it was he who targeted Charles-Gabriel Sebastian Seifert, a former soldier and French colonial official and of course a member of the Knights Templar, who particularly distinguished us. It must be said that the simple fact of passing Notre Dame cathedral with all due respect to the despicable assassination of Templar constitutes an even more appreciative moment. But then, if you have the patience to get into the sect, contentment is nicer. Seifert watched undoubtedly open up about his misdeeds and the matter before being stabbed in the face, This is an assassination according to the rules of art.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – John Elliotson
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is even more hateful than its predecessor. But just like him, he gave us a good set of original assassination methods to put an end to the life of true trash. John Elliotson was one of them. A tonic that has seriously sickened London workers, causes the death of young Clara O’Dea, our assassins’ ally Evie and Jacob. To put an end to the actions of this unscrupulous doctor, he infiltrates medical school. There, he slips on a stretcher so he can approach the doctor in the middle of one of his presentations. Enough stab in the face and this is the end of this cowardly antichrist. The least we can say is that Jacob is a killer with a sense of showmanship.
Assassin’s Creed Origins – Crocodile
If it’s of a different kind than the ones in the franchise’s historical episodes, the assassination animation in Assassin’s Creed Origins has a lot of beauty. Between mysticism and seeking revenge, they exude an astonishing, almost enchanting rage that may not have left you indifferent. Whether it’s opening the game with the assassination of a heron or the horrific blogger Amon, many of them have left their mark on players. But since we can only pick one, the crocodile assassination is what he focuses on. It must be said that extracting the life of the woman who caused the life of young Shadia with her own hands is very satisfying. Add to that Bayek’s quiet, cinematic aesthetics and the symbolism of revenge and you’ve got one of the franchise’s most memorable assassinations.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – Folk
In Assassin’s Creed, the most satisfying assassinations are often those that have to do with our character’s story. Revenge is a frozen dish in the Ubisoft franchise, and it tastes amazing. If we can tell you about the thoughtful and visually successful assassinations of DLC The Siege of Paris, we won’t miss the happiness that was Fulke’s death in the base game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. After chasing her through missions and risking seeing her escape again, taking her down in this unforgettable battle is one of the most satisfying victories in the opus. This is followed by a mystical cinematic, tinged with madness and fantasy, that has a spirited character.
