Assassin’s Creed is a huge video game franchise and it’s just going to keep growing. WEBTOON recently announced that they have partnered with Ubisoft to release a new original webcomic called Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple. This series from REDICE STUDIO will pick up after the fan favorite title Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag following Edward Kenway. Edward is out there looking for Pieces of Eden in Southeast Asia and fans will be treated to a Korean American descendant of his, Noa, who is investigating things in the present day.

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 Southeast Asian seas – 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.

This sounds pretty cool in my opinion. I still need to play Black Flag, but I’ve heard really good things about it. Talking about the opportunity, Julien Fabre of Ubisoft said:

We are thrilled to expand the Assassin’s Creed series to WEBTOON thanks to this amazing collaboration with WEBTOON and REDICE STUDIO. We’ve been working hard with the talented folks at REDICE to craft this original Assassin’s Creed Black Flag sequel and hope that existing fans and new readers around the world will enjoy it.

WEBTOON’s David Lee shared:

We are beyond excited to collaborate with our partners at Ubisoft and the powerhouse team at REDICE STUDIO to bring this expansion of the Assassin’s Creed universe to WEBTOON readers around the globe. As longtime fans of the franchise, we can’t wait for readers to see where Edward Kenway’s story goes next. This incredible series will captivate existing fans of the Assassin’s Creed video games while introducing this beloved IP to a new audience on WEBTOON.

Meanwhile, REDICE STUDIO said:

Assassin’s Creed is a one-of-a-kind IP, and our goal was to create a work that would be appealing not only to fans of the original game, but also to readers who are encountering the Assassin’s Creed IP for the first time through WEBTOON. We are thrilled to work with UBISOFT and WEBTOON to tell a new side of the Edward James Kenway story set in Southeast Asia. We can’t wait for fans to dive into this rich new storyline and entry into the Assassin’s Creed universe.

The first six episodes of Forgotten Temple will be available to read on WEBTOON on April 24 at 5 PM PT. In addition, the webcomic will be localized for fans in the United States, Korea, Japan, Indonesia, and France. You can check out Edward’s look for Forgotten Temple below.
