WWII Is The Next Setting For New Assassin's Creed Comic

Titan Comics has revealed a new Assassin's Creed comic series set in WWII called Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies. This story will have two parts and standalone from other existing comics and games in the Ubisoft franchise. Conspiracies is the English translation of a series that has already been released in French by Les Deux Royaumes. This is the first time Assassin's Creed has taken place in the second world war, and marks the most modern time in history featured in the series. Conspiracies follows new assassin Eddie Gorm, who is embroiled with the Templars as is standard fare for the franchise. Titan Comics has a description available:

Eddie Gorm is the boss of the docks and his only obsession is to run his small business. For this, the docker does not shrink from anything: diversion of military rations, traffic of alcohol and settling of account in the district of the East End. The war? The Nazis? This is the problem of others. Except that when death knocks on his door, he has no choice: the only man to save the world from atomic horror, Eddie finds himself propelled despite himself in the midst of a millennial conflict between the Order of Templars and the Brotherhood of Assassins.

Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies will release in English on October 30, written by Guillaume Dorison and with art by Jean-Baptiste Hostache.

 

Our Take:
Hopefully this new comic will see success and push Ubisoft to look at WWII as a viable setting for future Assassin's Creed titles. Ubisoft has plenty of options for modifying the game to fit the template of past releases, while also offering new experiences in a more modern setting.
