Assassin's Creed has been one of the most solid guarantees in the videogame industry for over 15 years. The series Ubisoft has established itself on the market with engaging and interesting adventures, attracting the attention of millions of gamers across the world.
Details, anecdotes, and background on the Assassin's Creed series are endless. Here are five Assassin's Creed trivia that are worth seeking out.
Born from the rib of Prince Persia, the child was born.
It's unknown whether everybody understood that Prince of Persia was originally conceived as a spin-off of a well-known Ubisoft series. It's possible that the game, which was initially conceived in 2004, later evolved into a separate game, bringing back the famous adventure that Altair performed. There's a video testimony of the original prototype that illustrates various similarities to the final game.
The most sought after protagonist
Ezio Auditore from Florence is the most liked and well-known protagonist of the series, despite dozens of main and spin-off games and a slew of charismatic protagonists. Assassin's Creed Revelations revolve around his figure, without even ignoring the spin-off Assassin's Creed II Discovery.
The Mayan prophecy
The first games in the series, focused on Desmond Milesall, revolve around the famous Maya that was predicted about the end of the world on December 21, 2012. The end of the world, which would have occurred on December 21, 2012, must in fact be defecated by the boy at the very last second (here's how Desmond's story ends in Assassin's Creed 3 in this regard).
The first death with the Hidden Blade
The Assassins' symbolic weapon has far more ancient roots than the group itself. In 465 BC, the Persian Darius (also known as Dario o Artabanolisten) assassinated Xerxes Iking of Persia. This is the first time ever that a murder has been committed via the Hidden Blade.
Assassin's Creed is the greatest game.
It's difficult to select which game has been the best to date in Assassin's Creed. Despite what has been reported by Metacritic, a clear winner appears: it is in fact Assassin's Creed II, the first adventure featuring Ezio. The PS3 version of the game has scored a 91 on 70 different reviews, and this is the highest result ever achieved by a Ubisoft player.
