Assassin’s Creed Origins Comic Announced, Check Out Some Artwork
Many of this generation’s biggest video game franchises are receiving the comic book treatment courtesy of Titan Comics. The publisher has already adapted Wolfenstein II and Tekken into graphic novels, with a Bloodborne comic on the way in February. That won’t be the only one gaming fans have to look forward to next month, however.
Titan has announced it is releasing a new graphic novel series based on the latest installment in Ubisoft’s stealth-action franchise, Assassin’s Creed Origins. The first issue of the Assassin’s Creed Origins comic debuts in February and ties directly into the game. Titan hasn’t shared many plot details from the graphic novel, but the series is set after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins and features historical figures such as Cleopatra.
Ahead of the comic’s release, Titan has shared several variant covers for Assassin’s Creed Origins #1, along with a handful of pages of interior art from the debut issue–you can take a look at all of the artwork in the gallery above. The primary cover for the issue is designed by Stephanie Hans, whose previous credits include The Wicked + The Divine, Angela: Queen of Hel, and Jean Grey.
Both Assassin’s Creed Origins and Bloodborne graphic novels will be available in physical stores and online in February. Additionally, Titan is releasing a new comic based on the Xbox One pirate game Sea of Thieves. That series is set to launch around the time of the game’s release in March.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game’s first big DLC pack, The Hidden Ones, released last week and added a new story chapter, as well as new weapons, mounts, and more content. It will be followed by The Curse of Pharaohs expansion in March. Ubisoft also plans to add a New Game Plus mode to Assassin’s Creed Origins.
