This November marks the 15th anniversary of the release of the first Assassin's Creed game, and to celebrate, Ubisoft has put together a video paying tribute to the series's past.
The mix of live-action and visual effects opens on Altair in Jerusalem, before cycling through characters and locations from the rest of the series. Characters like Eivor, Kassandra, Edward Kenway, Evie Frye, and Desmond, to name just a few. Throughout the two-minute video, we see assassinations, hand-to-hand combat, and of course, some death-defying parkour, before it closes with all the characters performing a leap of faith.
A message then asks players to tune into the Assassin's Creed Showcase taking place on 10th September, at 12pm PT/9pm CEST, where it's expected multiple new games will be announced (per a Bloomberg report).
Assassin's Creed came out on November 13th, 2007 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America. Those in Europe, meanwhile, had to wait three days later to get their hands on the game. Reviews of the game ranged from incredibly enthusiastic to some slight disappointment over it not living up to the pre-release hype. Nevertheless, it has since seen a number of direct sequels, a Hollywood movie, and spin-offs like the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series and Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles.
