What it would look like if there was an Assassin's Creed based in Ireland

Imagine making a leap of faith off The Spire in an Assassin's Creed based in Ireland...
Before Assassin's Creed Odyssey came out, we got to thinking about what an Assassin's Creed based in Ireland would look like. The game's creators seemed open to the idea as well, so you never know!
AC Odyssey is based in Ancient Greece, not that we're jealous of them or anything...
If they did opt for Ireland, where and when would they base it? Would we be fighting alongside Brian Boru in the Battle of Clontarf, or maybe in Ireland's fight for independence? Here are some of the places that could make an appearance...
Spanish Arch - Co. Galway
It wouldn't exactly be too hard to fade into the crowd after completing a mission. True enough you might need a bottle of Buckfast if you want to fade in, but it's all in the name of stealth.
While the Arch itself isn't quite high enough to be a viewpoint, you'd definitely earn a trophy for doing a leap of faith off it. In-game, obviously.
English Market - Co. Cork
A great place to find delicious food and filming locations from The Young Offenders. You know what else you'll find, however?
Trinity College - Co. Dublin
They're definitely hiding something over in Trinity College. All those years of the college producing some of the best and brightest can't just be down to it simply being a good college.
We reckon therefore that pieces of Eden might be involved. Maybe Alexios or Kassandra could get to the bottom of it...
Giant's Causeway - Co. Antrim
Firstly, the fact that the Giant's Causeway hasn't been featured in a video game seems like nothing short of a crime. Assassin's Creed is the perfect game to break that trend, and climbing up and down the rock sculptures would be extremely fun, to say the least.
Maybe we'd learn how it was really formed by visiting some ancient civilisation through the Animus. Just saying, it would be interesting...
Newgrange - Co. Meath
Assassin's Creed Origins was based in Ancient Egypt, and Newgrange is even older than the Pyramids. It would be the ideal place to go back even further in the history of the assassins, and it's just off the N51 so would be handy enough to get to as well.
Make it happen.
Having an Assassin's Creed based in Ireland, therefore, seems to us like the natural next step from Ancient Greece. We've already had a look at the latest game in the Assassin's Creed universe, and we have to say that we're big fans.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is available for download and in-store nationwide now! With a bigger map and more choices than ever before, you can explore the stunning countryside and gripping history of Ancient Greece with the most impressive gameplay and graphics of the series to date.
