The Assassin's Creed Franchise

Assassin’s Creed is a game where you enter a past civilisation and explore pseudo history of real events and locations from the past. You can climb the environment extensively, interact with different characters, collect items to unlock more the location and intervene in key historical moments. It’s become popular because of the detailed cities, and beautiful locations it creates for players to explore.

Along with the action and suspense of the running, jumping, climbing, fighting and assassination, the games are known for strong narrative and characters. This not only gives you a compelling reason to play, but fleshes out the sense of place and historical accuracy of the game.

Of note to families with younger children not old enough to play the game but keen to explore the settings, there is a Discovery Tour mode and stand alone version on PC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins and that provides a violence-free setting. This enables players to explore the full map without the pressure of quests and combat. It also adds enhanced cinematic scenes to focus on the smaller details being discussed during a tour. There are also quizzes to see how much history players have taken in during their exploration.
