There aren't many franchises that can take you through countless moments in history, seeing iconic places around the world and historical figures. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series is one of the few that can, and with a new entry in the storied saga now available, it's a great time to grab some discounted games you might have missed.
That's especially true considering it's Amazon Prime Day-er, excuse me, Amazon Big Deals day, so we have no way of knowing when copies will run out due to this many people buying online right now. The big game that you really should grab is Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is on sale for almost half its usual price. That's dozens upon dozens of hours of gameplay for well below the price of a new game.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is also the game in this list that is by far the most likely to go back up in price before long, so don't hesitate and buy it quickly. Set before the original Assassin's Creed, Valhalla tells the tale of Eivor, a Viking who has a huge role to play in the wars against Saxon-held England and much, much more.
If you're looking for a different kind of Assassin's Creed vibe, Odyssey and Origins are well below $25 right now. These games are set in Ancient Greece and Egypt, respectively, and together they tell the story of how the Assassins were founded, as well as the mysterious Order of the Ancients.
This is a great time to get caught up on the history of Assassin's Creed, since Assassin's Creed Mirage is now available. This game is much smaller compared to the three huge titles listed above, as Mirage removes a lot of the RPG elements and hearkens back to the original experience.
In our review of Assassin's Creed Mirage, staff writer Rebecca Spear wrote that "If you're new to Assassin's Creed or are already a fan of the series, you should check this game out as it provides a satisfying experience, even if it's similar to the games that came before it. It just manages to do this without stretching on for too long."
By contrast, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Odyssey, and Origins can all take a very long time to complete, especially if you're intent on doing every piece of side content the games have to offer. When it comes to getting enough bang for your buck, you're not going to see much better deals than this.
