Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series is one that is constantly evolving, not only in the world of video games but in many other forms of entertainment too.
As reported by Dicebreaker, the latest evolution in the Assassin’s Creed series is into the popular world of tabletop card game series, Magic: The Gathering from Wizards of the Coast. The new booster packs will join the likes of other previous collaborations including The Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Jurassic Park and Warhammer 40k.

During a recent Gen Con 2023 panel, the Hasbro-owned Wizards of the Coast teased the upcoming Assassin’s Creed booster packs which will tell a story in the world of Magic: The Gathering with locations inspired by Egypt, Greece, Italy and Scandinavia, the latter of which is the location of the most recent video game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
However, Dicebreaker reports that the exact contents of the Assassin’s Creed booster cards remain unclear at this time. We don’t know if the packs will be randomised or semi-randomised drawn from a pool of limited run themes. Dicebreaker has reached out to Wizards of the Coast for clarification.
In related news, series-favourite character Kassandra from Assassn’s Creed Odyssey is set to make a triumphant return in an upcoming and highly anticipated entry. What’s more, other fan-favourites (including Kassandra) will also be returning in a first-person Assassin’s Creed game that will completely change the series’ emphasis on parkour.
Elsewhere, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next major release on the way and it arrives on 12 October 2023 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox. Assassin’s Creed Mirage looks to take the series back to its 2007 OG roots with a focus on stealth and will star Basim Ibn Ishaq from Valhalla as the playable protagonist.
