Assassin’s Creed: Bloodstone: Surprising Historical Era Chosen For This AC Comic!

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise is constantly evolving. Devoted fans are always excited to see where the series goes next, but Bloodstone has surprised everyone.



First released in 2007, the original Assassin’s Creed, starring Altaïr Ibn-LaʼAhad, while not perfect, was the ideal starting point for a franchise that would soon become one of Ubisoft’s most profitable games. Now the series has ventured into new territory with Assassin’s Creed: Bloodstone.

Since its launch 16 years ago, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has become an absolute mammoth in the video game industry. It has spawned numerous sequels, comic book and novel adaptations, films and more.

One of the franchise’s strongest strengths, at least in terms of story, is that it can take a turn in any direction. With almost infinite possibilities in any historical era – be it ancient Egypt, Greece, the Anglo-Saxons, or, as in the case of the soon-to-be-released mobile game Assassin’s Creed: Jade, ancient China. This brings us to the theme of the day. Because one of the relatively recent spin-offs in the series is set during the Vietnam War!

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodstone, published by Les Deux Royaumes, is a two-part comic book written by Guillaume Dorison and illustrated by Ennio Bufi.

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodstone is set in Tokyo, Japan in 2017. It follows the story of Tomo Sakagawa as he relives the memories of Alexei Gavrani, a former assassin of the Soviet Union and a member of the Assassin Brotherhood. During the Vietnam War, Gavrani was hired by the CIA to investigate World War II historical figure, Boris Pash.

“Tomo is one of the youngest members of a Japanese Assassin cell. More of a hacking technician than a seasoned fighter, Tomo identifies a massive misuse of data operated by a clinic in Switzerland,” reads the synopsis of Bloodstone.

“His investigation makes him follow the footsteps of another cell of Assassins that seeks to carry out a project initiated during the Vietnam War. Exploring the memories of Alekseï Gavrani. An assassin employed by the CIA during the Cold War. Tomo discovers the experiments of a certain Boris Pash….”

Fans discussed Assassin’s Creed: Bloodstone on Reddit. Some are already hoping that the comic will be turned into a video game someday.
