Finally, many of these games have had their times adjusted as more players submit their data, so a refresh among all entries was applied. Perhaps there is no Assassin more worthy of the order than this one, who understands, at a painfully personal level, that freedom is not merely a philosophical idea.
The final game in the Ohio Auditor the Firenze trilogy comes to an end in this epic journey. For those wanting to gain insight into integral characters of the franchise, Assassin's Creed Revelations is a must-play.
Inspired by Prince of Persia, which is a spiritual predecessor, we're glad Ubisoft didn't give up on this IP. It takes 15 hours to beat the original Assassin's Creed, audit offers less value for completions compared to other games in the series.
The second installment of the Ohio Auditor the Firenze trilogy deserves recognition for being an overall solid game. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood takes players, on average, 15 hours to beat the main campaign.
Its story includes historical figures, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Pope Alexander VI. Small nuances like being able to collect income from the Villa Auditor, a familial home, make Assassin's Creed II stand out in the best way possible.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a launch game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Fighting tigers and black panthers or a notorious group of pirates as the dynamic Edward Ken way makes the game well worth the play through.
Completing this game will take 22.5 hours, even if fewer filler sections could've appropriately shortened its length. The game contains real-world locations like the Great Pyramid of Giza, but it provides a glimpse into how they might have appeared in Ancient Egypt.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is one of the longest games for main story players and completions alike. Finishing the main story of Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes player 42 hours on average.
Playing through the eyes of the deep and puzzling Ivor, gamers better buckle in for a long trip. Unlike Assassin's Creed Odyssey, enemies are at a static difficulty and do not adjust to the player's power level, so a “speed run” isn't possible, even for those looking to get through the game in a hurry.

Microsoft Windows Remastered PlayStation 4, Xbox One The Rebel Collection Nintendo Switch Genre(s)Action-adventure, stealth Mode(s) Single-player The plot is set in a fictional history of real-world events and follows the centuries-old struggle between the Assassins, who fight for peace with free will, and the Templar's, who desire peace through control.
The story is set in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years' War, and follows Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar who hunts down former members of his Brotherhood after being betrayed by them. Upon release, Rogue received a mixed reception; while most critics praised the game's twist on the traditional formula by playing as a Templar, the mature story-line, the complex protagonist, the sophisticated depiction of the fight between Templar's and Assassins, as well as the additions to the franchise's lore and the naval warfare gameplay, other reviewers criticized it for failing to innovate the series' formula and its similarities to Black Flag.
Assassin's Creed Rogue is an action-adventure, stealth game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. Naval aspects from previous games return with the player controlling Shay's ship, the Mórrígan.
The Mórrígan has a shallower draft compared to Edward Ken way's Jackdaw from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, allowing for river travel. New features include new ship-based weapons such as releasing an oil slick which can then be ignited, Buckle guns, and the ability for enemies to board the Mórrígan during ship-to-ship combat.
The arctic environment also adds features to naval gameplay and exploration, as certain icebergs can be rammed with an icebreaker. However, the underwater diving missions featured in Black Flag do not exist as swimming in the North Atlantic causes the player's health to rapidly deplete due to the frigid water, though Shay is able to swim in the more southerly waters of the 'river valley' area.
For combat, the game introduces an air rifle, similar to the blowpipe from Black Flag, which allows the player to silently take out enemies at a distance. Hand-to-hand combat has been slightly altered, and now enemy attacks can be countered with timing, similar to the Batman: Arkham series of games.
Enemy Assassins feature archetypes similar to previous games, using skills that players have been using throughout the series; they can hide in bushes, blend in with crowds, and perform air assassinations against the player. Poison gas can now be used as an environmental weapon, and Shay has a mask that can mitigate its effects, and Shay's Eagle Vision also takes elements from the multiplayer feature of the previous games that allowed them to track an enemy's position via a radar-like system, and even without it, Shay is able to detect enemy presence with the screen edges going red and is also able to accurately foresee when and from where his enemies will strike.
Side missions and activities return, with a number of them based on those of the previous games. Reflecting Shay's role as a Templar, the game introduces a new side mission: Assassin Interception.
The main source of income is renovating buildings from Assassin controlled gang hideouts similar to the Borgia towers in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. The objective in each hideout is to kill the gang leader who has an unlockable hidden blade strike, burning the flag of the gang, and in some cases killing defectors.
In order to overcome these challenges, the player may acquire possible upgrades for the Mórrígan as the game progresses. Shay Patrick Cormac (Steven Diocesan) is a new recruit to the Colonial Brotherhood of Assassins whose potential is offset by his insubordination.
Posing as a Templar courier, he delivers the artifact and manuscript to Benjamin Franklin (Rick Jones) whose experiments with electricity on the artifact generate a map showing the location of Precursor temples around the world. He identifies one in Lisbon, and Cormac is dispatched by Davenport to retrieve the Piece of Eden it contains.
However, Cormac has begun questioning the Assassins' motives after seeing their refusal to engage in dialogue with the Templar's, and being asked to kill an already-dying Templar commander, Lawrence Washington. Correctly deducing that a similar sequence of events destroyed Port-au-Prince, Cormac is horrified to learn that Davenport intends to continue the search for Pieces of Eden despite the danger.
Shay then steals the manuscript and attempts to escape the Homestead, but is cornered by members of the Brotherhood. Intending to commit suicide by jumping off the Homestead's cliff, Shay is shot and left for dead before he can destroy the Manuscript.
Now that he is cast adrift, he finds himself in New York City, acting as a vigilante to clean out gangs that are extorting the citizenry. His efforts attract the attention of Colonel George Monroe (Graham J. Culbertson), who convinces Cormac that he can improve the lives of others.
Meeting with Christopher Gist, Shay retakes his ship the Mórrígan from the Assassins, and agrees to assist his new allies, despite learning that they are Templar's. He is disturbed to learn that the Assassins have not given up their search for the Pieces of Eden, and believing them to be a threat, commits himself to the Templar Order to hunt them down.
After killing Colonial Brotherhood Assassins Le Chaser (Chimwemwe Miller) and Kesegowaase (Danny Blanco-Hall), Shay becomes a fully fledged member of the Order when he is inducted by Grand Master Latham Ken way (Adrian Though). Shay then eliminates Adele, Hope Jensen (Patricia Summer sett) and Louis-Joseph Gautier de La Legendre (Marcel Jeannie).
Finally, only two senior members of the Assassins in America remain alive: Achilles himself, and his second-in-command Liam O'Brien (Julian Casey), once Shay's best friend. Shay pursues the two to the Arctic with Latham, where the Assassins have located another Temple.
Shay then makes his way back to his ship and arrives as Latham overpowers Achilles. Shay persuades Latham to spare Achilles, out of mercy and to ensure knowledge of the Temples will not be lost, so the Assassins will not try to pursue them again.
Latham then shoots and cripples the last American Assassin, who retires to his homestead near Rockport, Massachusetts (paving the way for the events of Assassin's Creed III). As the Templar's set sail for home, Latham tasks Shay with retrieving the Precursor artifact.
Shay spends the next 16 years hunting it down, even as Templar influence in the colonies was eventually destroyed by Connor during the American Revolution. The final memories gradually reveal a mission to escort Benjamin Franklin through Paris, in search of the Precursor box that is in the possession of Charles Dorian, a French Assassin and the father of Arno Dorian (the protagonist of Assassin's Creed Unity).
Shay murders Dorian and takes possession of the box as he becomes a senior member of the Templar Order. In the present day, the player is researching Cormac's memories for Stereo Entertainment when they inadvertently trip a hidden memory file that infects the Animus servers.
Stereo is placed in lockdown, and the player must clean the Animus servers out by living Cormac's later memories. Juan Otto Berg, a senior member of the Templar's, later orders the player to upload Shay's memories to the Assassin servers in order to weaken their resolve by showing how close Achilles Davenport came to destroying the world and the Assassins betraying Shay.
In a mid-credits scene, Berg thanks the player for their help, and gives them a choice: join the Templar order, or die. By March 2014, an Assassin's Creed game code-named “Comet” was revealed to be in development, set for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
By the end of the month, additional reports indicated that “Comet” would be set around 1758 in New York, as well as feature sailing on the Atlantic Ocean. The game would be a direct sequel to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and would feature a Templar named Shay as the main protagonist.
Latham Ken way from Assassin's Creed III and Adele from Black Flag would also make appearances. The game is intended to “fill the gaps” of the story between Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and has “a crucial link” to the events of the previous games.
In addition to Ubisoft Sofia's work on the game, contributions are also being made by Ubisoft studios in Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest. Review scoresPublicationScore Destruction 5.5/10 EGG 8.5/10 Euro gamer 8/10 Game Informer 8.25/10 GameS pot 6/10 GamesRadar+ Semitrailers 7.2/10 IGN 6.8/10 Joystick VideoGamer.com 7/10 Ray Carrillo from Electronic Gaming Monthly gave the game an 8.5/10, praising its interesting lead character, enjoyable story, new weapons introduced, new mission design, which requires players to prevent assassinations instead of carrying out assassinations like in other Assassin's Creed titles, as well as advanced and improved combat mechanics.
However, the story missions themselves and single player campaign overall were criticized for being noticeably shorter than in previous games. He praised the huge variety of activities, varied environments, and mission types, new additions and well-performed gameplay, despite being too similar to its predecessors.
He praised the engaging story, the nuanced lead character, atmospheric scenery, but criticized the lack of Templar abilities included, bland encounters with other main characters, uninspired side quests, empty world, as well as the frustrating combat and traversal system, which he stated has shown no improvements. Mark Walton from GameS pot gave the game a 6/10, criticizing the predictable story, unlikable lead character, lack of interesting missions, as well as being thin on core content.
He stated that the game feels like a glorified Black Flag DLC pack and has done nothing to put the franchise forward. He stated that Assassin's Creed Rogue is essentially a clone of Black Flag's setting and systems.
