Assassin’s Creed is one of the world’s most popular game series. And thanks to a new mod called AssassinCraft, anyone can combine the worlds of Assassin’s Creed and Minecraft together.
AssassinCraft is surprisingly deep. Instead of adding just a handful of deadly weapons into the game, AssassinCraft adds over a dozen new and creative weapons, and that number continues to grow with every update. So far, the mod includes the following weapons:
-Tomahawk: You can throw the tomahawk or use it as a melee weapon like the iron sword.
-Hiddenblade: This is the classic Assassin’s Creed weapon. When sneaking up on mobs from behind, you can kill them with one hit using the Hiddenblade. You can also retract the blade by pressing right-click. And yes, the mod creator has designed the weapon as all one word – Hiddenblade as opposed to Hidden Blade.
-Hiddengun: Just like the Hiddenblade, the Hiddengun can be retracted with a single click. It also kills most enemy mobs with a single shot. The Hiddengun uses bullets, which can be crafted by players.
- Altair’s Sword: Altair, the main character of the first Assassin’s Creed game, owns the most powerful sword in this mod. It’s guaranteed to kill any mob in a single hit.
-Crossbow: The crossbow is similar to the bow, although it deals a bit more damage. Players have to manufacture crossbow bolts.
-Apple of Eden: Despite the peaceful name, the Apple of Eden will instantly kill all mobs around you. Simply equip the weapon, press right-click, and every single mob in a 10 to 15 block radius will instantly die.
-Smoke bomb: Make it difficult for enemies to follow you by tossing a smoke bomb in your wake.
New gameplay elements
Along with adding new weapons for players, AssassinCraft introduces some totally new gameplay elements into the mix, including:
Ledges: Players will now be able to climb on certain ledge blocks when they’re scaling cliffs or traveling up mountain slopes.
Florins: The money they use in Assassin’s Creed has made its way to AssassinCraft. Florins can be used to buy items from NPCs. They can be found in the chests in NPC houses and they also drop from dead mobs.
Hookblade climbing: The hookblade allows your character to climb up vertical blocks. Just right click where you want to climb. When directed at a mob, the hookblade will also cause about the same amount of damage as an iron sword.
Dual wielding: Many of the weapons listed above can be dual wielded, including the Hiddenblade, Hiddengun, and Hookblade.
Codex Page: The Codex is an important part of AssassinCraft. The Codex can be used to turn citizens into assassins by simply right-clicking on them.
Bomb Crafting Table: The Bomb Crafting Table is still a work in progress, but when it’s complete, players will be able to craft bombs like they would craft any other Minecraft items.
-Ezio’s Armor and Altair’s Armor: You can craft and wear Ezio’s/Altair’s armor. There are different sets of armor from all of the Assassin’s Creed games so far.
AssassinCraft adds plenty of new mobs to the world of Minecraft, and all of these mobs come from different Assassin’s Creed games. Those mobs include:
-Leonardo da Vinci
