Ubisoft introduces a new assassin to the Assassin’s Creed mythology. Assassin’s Creed Brahman takes place in 19th century India, under oppressive British Colonial rule. We are introduced to Arbaaz Mir, an all new assassin on a crusade against a “lifelong foe” that has subjugated his precious homeland and people. One of the coolest things about the Assassin’s Creed franchise has been seeing different depictions of various historical eras and the introduction of a protagonist that embodies that era. If these teaser images are any indication, it looks like Mir will be a worthy addition to the long line of assassins we’ve already met.
The new title reunites the creative team behind the previous Assassin’s Creed graphic novels, Assassin’s Creed: The Fall and Assassin’s Creed: The Chain. Eisner and Shuster Award-winning artists Cameron Stewart (Batman & Robin, Seaguy and Catwoman) and Karl Kerschl (Superman and The Flash) along with writer Brenden Fletcher (Wednesday Comics). Considering the rich mythology of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Brahman is sure to shed some more light and raise more questions about the age old struggle between the Assassins and Templars.
Assassin’s Creed Brahman is set to launch this fall in North America. For more info on the Assassin’s Creed franchise, including the next entry Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag check out the official website and Facebook page.
