32 Games Like Assassin’s Creed

Games Like Assassin's Creed Our collection of games like Assassin’s Creed will have you sneaking around open world environments with plenty of stealth based experiences.

Assassin’s Creed is a long running and very popular series of open world games that blend action, adventure and most importantly stealth into a single experience. The games often have a focus on human history with popular games visiting the Crusades, the Renaissance, the American Revolution and even the 18th century age of pirates.

In each title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise players will be experiencing memories of the past through the Animus device which is able to tap into genetic memories, allowing you to relive those events first hand.

Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed is definitely centred on player freedom. The worlds of each game are impressively large with plenty of options for exploration. The second and most crucial element to this experience is the way players can approach a particular objective in multiple ways, including the always popular (and generally preferred) stealth approach.

The games like Assassin’s Creed here all promise to offer a similar open world adventure with many of the games here having an emphasis on stealth elements.
