‘Assassin’s Creed: The Fall’ Development Diary Digs Into the Comic’s Creation [Video]
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series breaks out of the video game medium and into the world of comic books with the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed: The Fall, and co-creators Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl want you to learn everything there is to know about the assassin’s code — and they’ve made it easy on fans itching for more information, releasing a developer’s diary video that details the creation process on the video game adaptation.The video, just over five minutes in length, begins with the comic’s origin: the original mission statement of The Fall was to open up the Assassin’s Creed universe in new ways, with Stewart and Kerschl initially intending to focus on series mainstay Ezio. But the duo quickly realized that they would be more interested in developing their own character and timeline, and to that end, they created Nikolai Orelov, a disgruntled assassin struggling through the bleak cold that is turn-of-the-century czarist Russia. In addition to the grizzled old warrior, readers will come to know modern day characters such as Daniel Cross, an ancestor of Nikolai’s who comes into contact with the Abstergo group.
Beyond plot details, the development diary goes over Stewart and Kerschl’s unique collaborative process, their trip to Russia for research purposes and their desire to pen further “Assassin’s Creed” stories in the future.
