Assassin’s Creed, in what order to play the saga?

We put in order all the games of the Assassin’s Creed saga according to their historical setting, the chronology of their history and their release date.

Viking ships on the horizon! The new Assassin’s Creed is already a reality. Called Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , the game has been introduced this week with an impressive first trailer . Nordic setting , 9th century, travels through Norway and the coasts of northern England, a new settlement system that will have to be assaulted and conquered … Waiting to see some gameplay on May 7 , the game seems ready to keep up the good work of the latest installments in Egypt (with Origins ) and Greece ( Odyssey ). Surely the announcement has awakened the “ hunger for Assassin’s”To more than one and that is why, for those who want to catch up on the saga or complete their story, at MeriStation we have encouraged ourselves to quickly review all the games in the series and in which order it is recommended to play . They are not few, nor exactly short, but in these times of confinement and with summer on the horizon, it seems as good a time as any to learn the assassins’ creed and know all the details of their particular crusade against the Templars.

The first is the first. Before entering to see in what order we can play the saga, we must differentiate between its main and secondary deliveries . The latter tend to be smaller productions, mostly for portable, mobile and / or digital platform consoles. They offer a very different experience from the usual formula of the series and have served Ubisoft to delve deeper into some characters and try and experiment with new playable mechanics. These are the cases, for example, of Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines , for PSP, which continued to investigate the figure of Altair , or of Assassin’s Creed Recollection , for mobile phones, which immersed the franchise inthe world of card games . In principle, the order that we are going to advise you focuses solely and exclusively on the main deliveries. Of the secondary ones we are only going to emphasize two, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles . In the meantime spin-offs, these are the titles of greater entity and quality, those that can most help to complete the story and the only ones that are easy to find today, since both are available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One . That said, we are going with a first order to play the saga. The one that never fails. All Assassin’s Creed based on release date .

Now we go with a second way of approaching the series: what it would be like if we put the story in order . One of the advantages of this method is that it allows us to start playing for the latest titles in the series: Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey , which serve as a prequel and are two of its best installments . Better to start with them so that if in the end it gives us empathy and we leave, at least we have tasted its best fruits. In this list we will also include some complementary films that Ubisoft made in its day. They are completely free, enrich the experience and further complete the plot.

The biggest point of debate usually lies in the fact that the history of the present and the past do not always advance at the same rate. For example, the plot of the past of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set before the one of Assassin’s Creed III , but at the same time, the plot of the present of Black Flag goes after his. If we start with it we will eat some important spoiler . So although there are those who recommend playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed RogueBefore Assassin’s Creed III (that’s why following the correct order in the past), we are going to preserve the starting order so as not to spoil the outcome of Desmond’s story prematurely. If the plot of the present does not matter to you, advance Black Flag and Rogue . This is how our recommendation would be:

According to the order of the story

  1. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)
  2. Assassin’s Creed Origins (2017)
  3. Assassin’s Creed (2007)
  4. Assassin’s Creed Lineage ( Free Half-length Film )
  5. Assassin’s Creed II (2009)
  6. Assassin’s Creed: Ascendance ( Free Short Film )
  7. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (2010)
  8. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (2011)
  9. Assassin’s Creed: Embers ( Free Half-length Film )
  10. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles (2016)
  11. Assassin’s Creed III (2012)
  12. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation (2012)
  13. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013)
  14. Assassin’s Creed Rogue (2014)
  15. Assassin’s Creed Unity (2014)
  16. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (2015)

Finally, it should be remembered that, in any case, most are titles that can be enjoyed perfectly independently . There will be many of you who are only interested in the setting of the game and the time in which it takes place, and for that reason we leave you with a last list that will be very useful:
