The Assassin’s Creed franchise is timeless. With its parkour and fascinating narrative, the games are some of the most popular titles in the world. In the games, players take control of an Assassin who is a part of the Brotherhood of Assassins. Pitched in a tense battle against the Templar Order, players combat and assassinate Templars under this persona. However, fans seem to want a change in this style of play.

The idea of playing as a Templar is not too wild. Ubisoft experimented with it once, when they released Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. In the game, players controlled Shay Cormac, an Assassin turned Templar. The story took players through his journey as a Templar, hunting members of his former Brotherhood. Given it was part of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the game had parts where Shay was an Assassin.

As a result, fans want a spin-off, where players can play solely as a Templar. After all, a recurring theme is Assassins and Templars being two sides of the same coin. Both want to achieve the same goal, only have different methods of going about it.

Building on the idea, the user suggested a game with two playable characters: one Assassin and one Templar. Throughout the game, you choose to play either as a Templar or an Assassin, with the two characters crossing paths somewhere along the way. At the end of the game, the player chooses a character one last time, with their choice emerging victorious in a battle.

It is an interesting perspective on the franchise. Moreover, it may allow Ubisoft to open up newer avenues in terms of gameplay as well as the story. With Rogue’s release, players had the chance to play with Templar tools, such as the dart gun and more.
