The Assassin's Creed series has transported us throughout history, taking us to the the Third Crusade, Renaissance Italy, the American Revolution, and the colonial Caribbean, among many other times and locales. The franchise has also grown into a juggernaut over the past seven years, with annual releases keeping the enthusiasm alive.
