The Assassin’s Creed franchise has been known to delve into various time periods, from ancient China, Russia and, more recently, Egypt. The series has seen us following various protagonist through time. The latest comic adaptation based on the popular game series will be set during World War II.
The upcoming Assassin’s Creed comic takes place during World War II as a new Assassin called Eddie Gorm uncovers Templar plans to create a new and deadly weapon. Naturally, as we can assume, it’s up to Eddie to stop the Templars from succeeding in their evil schemes. The miniseries will be penned by Guillame Dorison with art from Jean-Baptise Hostache. The comic titled Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies has already been released in French, with the English version releasing later this year. The comic will be published by Titan Comics, who have previously adapted various games such as Wolfenstein and Bloodborne into comics.
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.
It would be interesting to see if this comic will inspire the developers of the game or if it could actually be based on a future Assassin’s Creed instalment. A few weeks ago, Walmart Canada inadvertently leaked the possible existence of quite a few well-known games, including a potential new Assassin’s Creed game. Whether this proves to be true is yet to be seen, at least we will have this upcoming comic book miniseries to tie us over until more information about an upcoming game is revealed.
