USG Presents Hidden Blades, Hoods, and Ancient Aliens: An Assassin's Creed Chronology

Time: Saturday at 3pm ET, Dragonfly Theatre

Description: Since 2007, Ubisoft has released eleven mainline releases in the Assassin's Creed franchise. Those games have taken the series from Renaissance Italy, to Victorian London, and ancient Greece. We've jumped across the timeline of Assassin's Creed, back and forth, never settling too long in one era. And that's before you get to the novels, comics, and films. Well we're going to straighten everything out. You might know Ezio and Bayek, but do you really know Assassin's Creed?

Panelists: Mike Williams [Reviews Editor, USG], Jake Baldino [Lead Producer, Gameranx YouTube; Host, BecauseVideoGames podcast], Dylan Ilvento [Co-Founder, Ward Games]
