The Best Gear For Assassin's Creed Fans

By Tom Pritchard on at

Nothing is true, everything is permitted. That's the creed of the Assassin's Order, which anyone who's seen the film or played the games will know already. Speaking of which, it's a good time to be a fan. Not only has the series hit cinema screens (albeit to mixed reception), there's also a remastered version of the best games in the series available in gaming shops everywhere.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the best Assassin's Creed gear money can buy.

The Ezio Collection, £25

Ezio is the best protagonist Assassin's Creed has to offer, with games that improved on the original and introduced a great story with new and interesting gameplay features. They also moved along the story of Desmond which, while boring at times, was an interesting glimpse into the modern-day war between assassins and Templars. The last-gen games have been remastered and re-released, letting you play the whole trilogy in glorious higher definition. [Buy it here]

The Games

If you hurry, you can get a bunch of the games via the Humble Bundle. Paying whatever you like (even £0 if you're so inclined), gets you Assassin's Creed Chronicles India, China, and Russia, plus the first game. Beating the average (currently $8.40/£6.90) adds Assassins Creed II, III (and the Tyranny of King Washington DLC), and Liberation. Bumping up to $15 (£12.35) gets you Unity and Brotherhood. Hurry though, because you only have another couple of days and you'll need a Uplay account.

The games in the series are also available on UplaySteam, and Amazon.

Apple of Eden Replica, £55

The Apples of Eden play a big role in the games and the film, and you can own one of your very own. This one is based on the one from the film, which is basically the same as the ones featured in the games - just inside a fancy case. It won't let you control the minds of the weak-willed, nor will it let you fire energy blasts at people, but it does look good. [Buy it here]

Statues

The protagonists of the series have been immortalised in statue form many times throughout the years, and you can keep them all on display. There are plenty to choose from, including Altair, EzioConnor Kenway, Edward Kenway, Arno Dorian, Jacob Frye, Evie Frye, and Aguilar.

Hidden Blade Gauntlets

The hidden blade is one of gaming's most iconic weapons, and the perfect tool for killers working in the shadows. Naturally you can buy replicas, and while they are useless at killing (or anything else knife related), they do look incredible. You can buy variants from most of the games, including those used by Ezio, Edward Kenway, Arno Dorian, the Frye twins, and Aguilar.

Logo Seal Stamp, £27

This one is for the serious nerds, who also prefer to wax their envelopes closed - rather than those pesky envelope adhesives. And what better way to imprint that wax than with the seal of the Assassin's Order? [Buy it here]

Into the Animus, £23

The visuals are arguable the most impressive part of the Assassin's Creed film, and this books dives into their creation with a selection of artwork. It's all got a lot more detail than you will have spotted at the cinema. [Buy it here]

The Essential Assassin's Creed Guide, £22

An illustrated guide with everything you need to be introduced to the world of Assassin's Creed, complete with information on characters, locations, and so on. It's the best way to learn, without having to play any of the games. [Buy it here]
