Assassin’s Creed lovers hungry for a glimpse at the next installment in the franchise’s new comic book series, Assassin’s Creed: The Fall, are in luck, as Ubiworkshop have posted a story synopsis and some artwork for the forthcoming The Fall issue #2.
The Fall tells the parallel stories of present day Daniel Cross and his Russian assassin ancestor Nikolai Orelov, following the narrative structure that fans have become accustomed to in the games. The next issue picks up where the previous one left off, with Cross learning more about the current Order of Assassins, and Orelov attacking a Templar research facility in Siberia, which culminates in the massively destructive and bizarre Tunguska Event.
Here's a page and the cover for the upcoming issue (which, by the way, will only be available through Ubiworkshop or at your local comic book shop):
Ubiworkshop also released two bits of AC art that were submitted as part of the “Carte Blanche” portion of its Assassin’s Creed Artbook project. The portraits are both stunning, and I would gladly play a game centered around either one. The first is by Will Murai, and the second is by SeedSeven. Great work you two.
