Assassin’s Creed concept art shows female protagonist, Prince of Persia

Thursday, 3rd May 2012 07:12 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft has released a pile of early concept artworks for the first Assassin’s Creed, dating back to November 2004, revealing some of the early ideas the team toyed with and discarded.

All the artworks were produced by Khai Nguyen. Some of the more notable images include co-op gameplay, a female assassin – an idea the team apparently kicked around for a while – and a sketch of an assassin protecting a small child which dates back to the series’ origin as a potential Prince of Persia spin off.

You’ll also see the very first appearance of the hidden blade, a more fantasy-look for the Assassin’s fortress, and two twinned portraits which creator Patrice Desilets used to convey the core concepts of low and high profile.

It’s pretty neat stuff; visit the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page for more information.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Onto necessary in Jordan. During the time when AC1 is taking place, Jordan didn’t exist. So, I think they wanted to increase the area covered by AC1 to include famous places located in today’s Jordan.

    @2this was my personal opinion!

    and even if its not of any relevance, its was still more productive than your comment…


    I think they didnt add Petra in pre-Jordan, because of its correlation to Indiana Jones x-).

    But the city certainly has some interesting sights like the pictured Khazne al-Firaun.

    Pity, I was hoping they might switch protagonist gender for AC3. Suppose it’d upset fans with the same mindset as @1, but could have freshened things up even more in my humble etc.
