Publisher Titan Comics has unveiled a new comic series based on Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise. Titled Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies, the two-part, standalone mini-series debuts this summer and takes the franchise to an entirely new era: World War II.
Conspiracies follows the story of Eddie Gorm, a rookie member of the Assassin Brotherhood who must stop the Templars from unleashing an atomic weapon. Here’s Titan’s synopsis of the series: “In the depths of World War II, fresh Assassin Eddie Gorm uncovers Templar plans to create a devastating new weapon at the dawn of the atomic age.”
Conspiracies is written by Guillaume Dorison, with artwork by Jean-Baptise Hostache. The series was previously published in French, making this the first time it will be available to an English audience. The first issue launches in stores and online on August 1. Ahead of its release, Titan has shared the cover and several pages of interior art, which you can take a look at it in the gallery below.
Conspiracies certainly isn’t the first comic series inspired by Ubisoft’s stealth-action franchise. Earlier this year, Titan released a comic adaptation of Assassin’s Creed Origins. That four-part mini-series takes place after the events of the Assassin’s Creed Origins game and features historical figures such as Cleopatra.
A variety of other major video game franchises have also received the comic treatment courtesy of Titan. The publisher has previously released comics based on Bloodborne, Wolfenstein, and most recently Dark Souls, with one inspired by Life Is Strange set to follow later this year.
