CMON is proud to announce that Assassin’s Creed®, Ubisoft’s video game series which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, is coming to the world of tabletop roleplaying games for the first time via CMON’s publishing imprint, Guillotine Press. The licensing agreement will give players exciting new ways to explore the vast world and time periods of the video games as they enter the Animus, searching for long-lost secrets and Pieces of Eden to aid them in their long fight against the Templars.
Overseen by CMON’s Head of IP & RPGs, Francesco Nepitello (The One Ring RPG, Zombicide Chronicles RPG, Dune: War for Arrakis), players in the Assassin’s Creed roleplaying game will create and play as Descendants, modern-day characters whose ancestors were famous Brotherhood assassins of old. Players will also create and play as several of those same Ancestors, one for each time period they’ll visit in their missions by entering the Animi Network. Guiding their adventures is the Animus Operator; it’s their duty to set the scene and guide the players through the game.
Fans of the video game can expect a deep dive into a wealth of lore and history pulled directly from the series’ core line, as well as the over two dozen spin-off games. Assassin’s Creed and roleplaying fans can expect a deluxe set of the books, along with numerous game supplements and enhancements, like character miniatures, detailed maps, and game aids.
