Picking a wallpaper for a computer isn’t difficult, but knowing what image you want to stare at every day without getting bored of it or ignoring it is. We all have so many hobbies and interests, so how can anyone narrow it down to just one image that they see every time they boot up their PC? Even boiling it down to just Assassin’s Creed as a franchise, there are thousands of images to choose from.
When it comes to selecting a wallpaper, fans generally want a simpler image with lots of space around it to leave room for icons and not make everything look like a mess. With that in mind, we’ve gathered 10 of the best Assassin’s Creed wallpapers here, covering a wide range of games from the series so there should be something for everyone.
We’ll start with just a simple logo. No matter what Assassin’s Creed game is a fan’s favorite, the Assassins’ compass crest is universally recognizable. This one is styled in the green of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which might make it best for the fans of the more modern entries.
For those who fondly remember the first Assassin’s Creed game, this red-heavy wallpaper features original protagonist, Altair. This is where the series first began, and the space on the left makes this perfect for a desktop wallpaper.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage returns to the roots of the franchise with a beloved character that stole the show in Valhalla. This wallpaper is particularly great because of the space around the characters to allow for more icons than is reasonable.
This is a flashier selection than most of the other wallpapers here, but we simply had to include it. Assassin’s Creed 3’s Connor has never looked more epic.
This shot from Assassin’s Creed Unity features protagonist Arno overlooking a rundown village. It’s a bit of a sadder image, but it demonstrates why the common people were worth fighting for during the French Revolution.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate features a set of twins, and we’re going with Evie Frye for this wallpaper pick. It’s a cool pose and one that creates nice spaces to arrange all your desktop icons.
Here we have Assassin’s Creed Origins hero Bayek walking the Egyptian desert as the hot sun rises. The start of the day makes for a nice parallel to the story of Origins, which, as the name implies, chronicles the beginnings of the Assassin and Templar orders.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has some sweet legendary bows, but this shot features a prominent spear. That’s not a warrior gazing over a city, though — look again, and it’s easy to see Alexios (one of the game’s two possible player characters) atop a massive statue.
There are so many action-packed moments in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to choose from. We could have gone with the dragon Nidhogg or the fire demon Hjalgunnar, but this peaceful landscape felt like the best way to showcase the sheer scale of the game.
Finally, we have one last flashy choice. So much of this series is focused on the Assassins and Templars fighting for control of the mystical Pieces of Eden, and this colorful artwork represents that conflict.
