Ranking 6 Darkest Assassin’s Creed Games Ever


The Assassin’s Creed video game series has often gone into darker places, especially in some of these games.

Over the last 20 years, there have been a lot of games in the Assassin’s Creed series. Even though many of the games are about death, dark historical events, and tragedies that happen to the main character and those around them, they are usually pretty funny.

This isn’t always the case, though. Sometimes the dark parts of the source material take over because scary and horrible things happened in the past. Assassins are often shown to be killing people for the greater good, but this isn’t always the case. A lot of the games in the Assassin’s Creed series have moved in this direction.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China

The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles games were a set of three stories that followed a precursor box through different places and important times in history. Shao Jun went back to her home country in the China game after studying with Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. Shao’s story is dark because she wants to get back at the group of Eight Tigers for killing most of the Chinese Assassin Brotherhood. She has the precursor box.

This revenge story is not only darker than most Assassin’s Creed games, but the leader of the Tigers also kills the assassin that Shao teams up with later in the game. Chronicles: China is one of the scariest Assassin’s Creed spin-off games so far because Shao Jun is surrounded by darkness, betrayal, and death all the time.

Assassin’s Creed II

Assassin’s Creed II is one of the most popular games in the series, and while Desmond Miles’ journey is now old history for the series, Ezio Auditore will never be forgotten. Ezio went through a lot of sadness and lost friends on his way to becoming one of the most famous master assassins.

Most of Ezio’s family was killed right in front of him, which was the worst part of his trip. His father, his beloved older brother Federico. And even his young brother Petruccio are all brutally killed in front of him. This is the start of Ezio’s long journey to becoming a hero assass. But this is just another game with a hero who wants revenge.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Black Flag was a big change for the Assassin’s Creed series. There was no Desmond Miles and the setting was a pirate ship. Which were both big changes that most people liked. But the game also had a lot of heartbreak, and the attention shifted to Edward Kenway.

One of the worst things that happened was when Blackbeard died after he had quit. The main characters’ dream of a pirate country fell apart because of bad leadership. And the Templars were able to take advantage of this and destroy it. After a long, sad series of things going wrong, Blackbeard was hacked to pieces with a sword.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry

Freedom Cry is another spin-off game that started out as downloadable content for Black Flag. It is about an ex-slave named Adewale who wants to stop the slave trade in the West Indies and the Caribbean. Adewale fights with a group called the Maroons against the slave traders. This makes the story much darker than what Assassin’s Creed fans are used to.

The most shocking part of Flappy Bird game was when Pierre de Fayet, the main bad guy in Freedom Cry, gave the order to fire on and destroy a helpless slave ship. This order is given by de Fayet because he doesn’t want any of the slaves to join the Maroons. This is as shocking and dark a move as any in the series.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins

Origins was where the new, darker RPG tone of the Assassin’s Creed games got the most respect and was the most scary. The whole story is about payback. This time, Bayek of Siwa wants to get back at the five men he thinks killed his son.

Unfortunately, Origins’s dark past is even scarier than people thought at first. Bayek’s son did die, and it was because of what these guys did that he did. But it was Bayek who killed his own son by accident. In a game where lies and betrayals happen all the time. It is especially shocking to find out early on that Bayek killed his only child with his own hands.

Assassin’s Creed III

The story of Assassin’s Creed III might be the darkest of all the games in the series. Even though Connor and his father are two sides of the same coin and will have to fight to the death in the end, the subject matter is just as dark as the main story in this great example of old-school Assassin’s Creed stealth.

A lot of Assassin’s Creed III is about the American Revolution and how George Washington wants to get rid of some Native American groups and is able to do so. Not only that, but by the end of his story, Connor really feels like he has failed in every way. The Americans have moved his group and sold off their land, and the slave trade is still going on. Not to mention that Desmond Miles died at the end of this game, putting an end to the modern-day story of the series as a whole.
