The Assassin's Creed franchise is in an interesting place right now, with Origins proving to be a success after Syndicate failed to make an impression. It's not yet known what the next game in the series will look like but fans do have the comic books from Titan to look forward to.

What fans will find interesting is the fact that the newest comic in the series, Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies, is that the setting is World War II.

Admittedly, the series has tackled the first World War before in Assassin's Creed III but it is still neat seeing the comic tackle this setting. This is actually the English translation of a comic that has already been released in France by Les Deux Royaumes.

Here is the official solicitation:

Eddie Gorm is the boss of the docks and his only obsession is to run his small business. For this, the docker does not shrink from anything: diversion of military rations, traffic of alcohol and settling of account in the district of the East End. The war? The Nazis? This is the problem of others. Except that when death knocks on his door, he has no choice: the only man to save the world from atomic horror, Eddie finds himself propelled despite himself in the midst of a millennial conflict between the Order of Templars and the Brotherhood of Assassins.

Believe it or not, World War II is actually the most modern setting that the series has tackled thus far. Granted, games like Syndicate and Assassin's Creed III did have guns and other modern thing but this is still fairly new territory for Assassin's Creed. It would be neat to see the games tackle World War II one of these days.

Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies will release in English on October 30, written by Guillaume Dorison and with art by Jean-Baptiste Hostache.
