Due to the nature of storytelling across the Assassin’s Creed series, the franchise could, and probably will, go on telling us stories for years to come. The first game only released in 2007, and since then, there have been more games than I care to count.
Assassin’s Creed hasn’t just stuck to the world of video games either; there have been comic books, novels, and a film. As of now, there is another way for fans to get their Creed fix in the form of an audio drama available on Amazon’s Audible.
Entitled Assassin’s Creed: Gold, the audio drama comes in at a lengthy 4 hours and 40 minutes and features Buffy’s very own Anthony Head in the role of Isaac Newton as well as Venom’s Riz Ahmed as a character named Omar Khalid.
Written by Anthony Del Col, Assassin’s Creed: Gold tells the story of Aliyah Khan, who is described as a card shark and hustler who has been dealt a rough hand in life. After losing to a man named Gavin Banks, Aliyah is forced to become an Assassin in order to pay him back.
During her training, Aliyah must discover the secrets of an illegal currency that dates back to the Great Recoinage of 1696.
I must say I’m somewhat interested in this and will give it a try at some stage. If the Amazon reviews are anything to go by, fans should be in for a treat as it currently sits on a score of 4.4, although that is only from 25 ratings at the time of writing.
Let us know in the comments if Assassin’s Creed: Gold is something that interests you and be sure to tell us how good it is if you’ve had the chance to listen.
If you want to try it and are a new customer, a 30-day free trial is available from Audible. If, like me, you’ve already used that, a monthly subscription is available, or you can buy the drama outright. I’ll apologize as I don’t have the US prices to hand, but in Britain, the outright cost is £19.99, so I’ll imagine it’s at least comparable in the states.
Now, if only I can convince someone to make an audio drama for Resident Evil.
Steve is the resident Englishman, just don’t hold that against him. He’s been playing games for the best part of 3 decades and will continue to do so for as long as his thumbs hold up. When they no longer work, he’ll still find a way to play Resident Evil 2. Lover of most things nerdy Steve also likes sports. Go sports!
