Talking Point: Do You Like The 'Modern' Assassin's Creed Games?

With 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins, Ubisoft went a different direction with its famous action adventure series. In fact, it basically became an RPG at that stage - and another of those Assassin's Creed RPGs is about to hit Xbox Game Pass.

Yep, Assassin's Creed Valhalla comes to the Game Pass library on January 9th, and ahead of its arrival, we're wondering where you stand on these modern AC titles. Are you a fan, or do you prefer the older, tighter AC experiences?

Of course, if you do prefer those smaller-scale AC titles, you've been treated this year with Assassin's Creed Mirage. However, this year's game has taken shape as a budget spin-off for the series, and the major tentpole AC games recently have all been sprawling RPGs.

Valhalla itself has always spoken to us in some way, especially with its Viking theme and gorgeous setting. Sure, it mostly sticks to the groundwork laid down by Origins and Odyssey, but something about Valhalla is tempting us into trying it on Xbox Game Pass!

Our resident reviewer PJ has played it of course - he gave the game a pretty glowing review back in 2020. Plenty of folks are clearly into these bigger Assassin's Creed games, but what do you think of them? Or will next week's Game Pass arrival in Valhalla be your first Assassin's Creed RPG experience?

Comment down below and tell us your general thoughts on AC these days. We're curious as to what you all think!
