Assassin’s Creed Odyssey revived the Ubisoft franchise with a phenomenal gameplay experience that offered more player choice than ever before. This series is a mainstay for th studio and one that has spawned numerous novels, comics, and even a movie that hit theaters a few years ago. Now the Assassin’s Creed name is expanding even further with a newly announced audio drama called Assassin’s Creed: Gold.
This audio drama was written by Anthony del Col and is narrated by Riz Ahmed, John Chancer, Ray Fearon, Anthony Head, Tamara Lawrance, Gemma Lawrence, and Danny Wallace. The sci-fi adventure is about 4 hours and 40 minutes long and centers around a new character by the name of Aliyah Kahn.
According to the Audible listing, “Assassin’s Creed: Gold follows Aliyah Kahn, a card shark and hustler, who’s been dealt a rough hand in life. Surviving through her smarts and street scams, Aliyah struggles to get by until she loses big time to a mysterious older man, Gavin Banks. Her only option to repay Banks is to become an Assassin. During her training, Banks tells Aliyah of the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars, imploring her to help him decode a secret message inscribed on an illegal form of currency during the Great Recoinage of 1696.
“With a cast of characters beloved the world-over by fans of the franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Gold tells a gripping tale of imminent economic collapse, featuring appearances from Warden of the Royal Mint, Isaac Newton, con artist and counterfeiter William Chaloner, blind assassin Omar Khaled and assassin trainer Rose Galloway. Equal parts adrenaline-fueled and thought-provoking, Assassin’s Creed: Gold draws a compelling parallel with the financial chaos of Isaac Newton’s 17th Century Britain and the economic uncertainty of our more recent history.”
The new Assassin’s Creed experience offers incredible talent from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Rogue One, and so much more. You can learn more about Assassin’s Creed: Gold here through Audible.
