Ubisoft has announced a webcomic collaboration with WEBTOON entitled Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple, which will launch on April 24, 2023.
The new series, published by the acclaimed REDICE STUDIO, will expand the story of Edward Kenway in the aftermath of the events of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The comic will be available exclusively on WEBTOON, with the first six episodes being available on April 24, 2023. New episodes will be rolling out weekly, and three seasons with a total of 150 episodes are planned for the immersive new webcomic series.
Here’s an overview of the webcomic:
The thrilling new adventure features the privateer-turned-pirate after his full integration into the Assassin Brotherhood. Edward Kenway is on a dangerous quest to find Pieces of Eden on the coasts of the Indian Ocean – and will have to face off with new and mysterious adversaries. Fans will also be introduced to Noa, a Korean American descendant of Edward Kenway, who investigates the Assassin’s past in the present day while searching for information about his family.
Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple will combine the elements of historical adventure and present-day action that have made Assassin’s Creed a global sensation, with fresh storylines that will appeal to readers who are new to the franchise. The series will retain Assassin’s Creed’s emphasis on historical accuracy, and utilize the Animus memory-travel machine featured prominently in the video game series.
Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple will launch on April 24, 2023.
