Assassin Creed franchise was started in 2007 and over the previous decade, the franchise has grown significantly, producing annual huge playgrounds. Trying to grasp the Assassin's Creed series' overarching narrative and how it connects to one another can be as daunting as it is difficult. From Renaissance Italy to Ancient Greece to the American Revolution, the franchise has taken players on a journey. Despite the fact that each Assassin's Creed game is significantly influenced by history, they are still works of fiction.  Without much ado, let’s have a look at the best 5 Assassin’s Creed titles to rock on your PC and consoles. Let's take a look at the top Assassin's Creed titles for PC and consoles without further ado.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

After a lengthy run of assassin protagonists, Black Flag tried something new, introducing us to the main character who was first and foremost a pirate, then an assassin - and the accompanying adventure blossomed as a result. It featured a highly fascinating sandbox playground in the Caribbean, complete with a myriad of islands brimming with riches and activities to partake in - as well as an upgrade system that made hunting wild animals and harpooning more than a job. Rather than dismissing sailing as a means to a goal, it expanded on the foundation of Assassin's Creed 3's maritime warfare to make Black Flag's nautical adventures the star of the show.

Adventures in a diving bell, whale hunting, buried treasure, and getting wasted in bars are all available. And destroying ship after ship and claiming their crews and parts feel like a genuine fist-pumping accomplishment. Its stunning seamless transition from land to water gave players the option of sailing circles around opposing ships while blasting them to bits, or slamming straight on and leaping onto enemy ships before unleashing a pair of pistols like a whirling dervish.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassins' Creed Odyssey combines Origins' combat system and a newfound focus on role-playing, throws in a few extra components, and places it all against the huge background of Ancient Greece, ablaze with the conflict between Athens and Sparta. It's a massive, colorful game with some of the most beautiful landscapes seen in the series, both on land and at sea (naval warfare is back, and it's fantastic). The country struggle system finds you battling huge scale conflicts in the name of Athens or Sparta, while the new twist on Assassin's Creed's popularity system sees you chased across these locations in a series of cat-and-mouse chases that are the tensest in any Assassin's Creed to yet. It also has a rather fascinating tale for a game that can take up to 60 hours to complete, with some unusual sidequests, and a genuinely charismatic protagonist - whether you play as a man or a woman. Even after you've finished Odyssey, there's still so much to uncover and loot, and it's a joy to simply exist in its world.

Assassin’s Creed Origins

This is a historical time that has been burnt into most of our minds from childhood, whether you're thrilled by the construction of the pyramids or grimly obsessed with the removal of the brain with a hook via a nose. Origins had a lot to live up to, but our first glimpse of Bayek and the Assassins as a whole marked the start of a new era for the franchise. The central story of Bayek and Aya, who set out to find justice for their murdered son but ended up founding the order that would eventually become the Assassin's association, is extremely compelling. Bayek's journey is also emotional, but it's the environment in which he finds himself that elevates Origins. Egypt is more than a sandbox. You can be lost for hours through cities, deserts, lush grassland, and the Nile itself. Although Odyssey is not an option, weapon enhancements, quests, a pet eagle to scan the area, and a new fighting style have improved the overall AC experience.

Assassin’s Creed 2

The previous brilliant diamond in the Brotherhood's shrouded crown, Assassin's Creed 2, has finally been eclipsed. But, until now, why has the 2009 masterpiece remained the franchise's pinnacle? It's straightforward. Everything. Assassin's Creed 2 poured new vitality into its dull predecessor's gameplay. This is a game that delivers heart, soul, and a world so gloriously expansive you feel like a kid in a murderous sweetshop from the moment Ezio is born - to control his little chubby arms and legs you have to use face pad buttons. As you're pushed into the fierce wars of the Templars and Assassins during the 15th century, Ezio's Renaissance Italy is a feast for the eyes and ears. This is an open world that is always developing and alive, whether you're rubbing shoulders with Leonardo Da Vinci, operating a flying machine, disturbing the pigeons of Venice with clinking tiles underfoot, or exploring the echoing depths of dismal dungeons. And Ezio is far more than a lovely lothario; following him through his tragic origins is a superb superhero story.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Valhalla did not reinvent the wheel in the same way as Origins did, but it did make some significant changes. Traditional side missions have been replaced by global events, making exploration and discovery much more organic; and the ridiculous quantity of treasure you'd have to organize and sift through has been toned down somewhat, making rewards feel much more worthwhile on the whole. Eivor may not be our favorite of the Assassin's Creed protagonists, but his (or her) story is compelling, and it's one of the series' strongest blends of historical fantasy and mythology. The story is important everywhere in this vast, gorgeous universe, and everything you do here seems authentic. Whether it's taking part in the fantastic mini-world events, choosing an Ealdorman for a county, or crashing your longship onto a beach and blowing your horn before plundering to your heart's content, there's something for everyone.
