Best Assassin's Creed Gift Ideas

The Assassin's Creed franchise needs no introduction, but here we are anyway. 12 (soon to be 13) main games, 17 spin-off games, books, comics, and a film that we'd all rather forget about. The world of AC is absolutely teeming with vibrant characters and it's brought fans into close contact with a range of bygone eras from Ptolemaic Egypt to Victorian London. In the fall of this year, the popular franchise is going to be taking us back to basics with the stripped-down and narrative-driven Assassin's Creed Mirage.

With the franchise's continued fine health and strong fanbase, the demand (and indeed supply) for merch and themed trinkets is strong. As we've done with other popular franchises, we've compiled a collection of our very favorite themed gift items.

If you're after the perfect present for the AC fanatic in your life (especially with the holiday season fast approaching), or even if you want to treat yourself, then look no further than the below ideas. There's something for all budgets and preferences in there.

Preorder Assassin's Creed Mirage on PS5 and Xbox

We've got a release date for Mirage now, and us AC fans are licking our lips with excitement for the coming release in October. The latest installement in the main game series is a self-described throwback to the AC games of old. The role-playing elements have been signinifcantly stripped back in favor of the narrative-driven, linear action of the first four games of the series.

Pre-orders are already available on Amazon, and they'll make a great gift. Both the standard edition and the Deluxe edition are available for pre-order.

Admit it, you want the little Ezio, don't you? I do anyway. If that one doesn't take your fancy, there are plenty of other firguerines and statues here. There's a range of options from little trinkets to serious decorative pieces.

Best Assassin's Creed Collectibles and Cosplay
