Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed: Brahman

Ubisoft announced at San Diego Comic-Con a new graphic novel set in the Assassin’s Creed universe, taking place in 19th century India for the first time – a land of mysterious golden palaces and cursed treasure chambers held in the iron grip of British colonial rule. It’s titled Assassin’s Creed: Brahman and is set to debut later this year.

Writer Brenden Fletcher (DC’s award winning Wednesday Comics) joins Eisner and Shuster Award-winning artists Cameron Stewart (Batman & Robin, Seaguy and Catwoman) and Karl Kerschl (Superman and the Flash), the critically acclaimed creative team behind Assassin’s Creed: The Fall and Assassin’s Creed: The Chain, to create Assassin’s Creed: Brahman, the latest chapter in the ongoing saga based on the popular video game series.

“I can say without reservation that this comic book is strongly inspired by the films of Stanley Kubrick,” said Fletcher in a UbiWorkshop interview. “We wanted to do something different – tell a type of story never before seen in the Assassin’s Creed universe – and touch on corners of the brand not yet explored by the video games. Brahman answers a lot of questions and opens a ton of new doors. Fans who want to know what the future holds for Assassin’s Creed beyond Black Flag would be advised to give it a read! Hint! Hint!”

Assassin’s Creed: Brahman is inspired by anime, science fiction and futuristic technology, Kerschel added.

In the graphic novel, a new Assassin, Arbaaz Mir, is introduced in the graphic novel as he battles a lifelong enemy who has subjugated Mir’s land and people. Assassin’s Creed: Brahman will dive into the rich lore of the Assassin’s Creed universe, unveiling new information and teasing future storylines.

Assassin’s Creed: Brahman is currently available for pre-order here for $19.99 and will ship this fall.
