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

Time: Saturday at 3pm ET, Dragonfly Theatre

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?
