Now that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is out and players can get back into the Animus to see through the eyes of yet another cool, historical Assassin, it's time to revisit the entire timeline of the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Since it's mostly based on our own timeline, every important moment in human history plays out in the long in-game history that encompasses the 12 main titles in the franchise along with its many spin-offs games, comics, and novels.

Some details in some of the games may contradict one another, so we're sticking to the story that is still canon as of the last three games.

The word behind almost any sprawling anime franchise or much raved about show is usually shounen. But while it seems like "shounen" just means action anime where a bunch of guys aim to be the best, it's so much more than that. Read our Shounen Subgenre Guide.
