The secret struggle between Assassins and Templars hits the Vietnam War! Part one of a new thriller set in the world of Assassin's Creed, from Guillaume Dorison (Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies, Devil May Cry) and artist Ennio Bufi (They Made History). Tomo, one of the youngest members of the Japanese Assassin cell, has uncovered a conspiracy. More of a man of science than a man of action, Tomo investigates further, leading him to follow the footsteps of Assassins that operated during the Vietnam War. But what secrets will he uncover?
Announced in February 2019 as a sequel of sort from Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies, but can be fully enjoyed separately. Bloodstone is written by Guillaume Dorison with art from Ennio Bufi and Andrea Meloni. Writing about the secret atrocities of the Vietnam War, Dorison wanted to explore the political underworld more and tease how the war almost turned into a third World War. The first volume was then released in France on 29 March. On 11 July the second volume was announced, and later released on 11 October.
The English version of the first volume was announced on 25 September, and was later released on 18 February 2020. The second volume in English was listed on Amazon with a release date of 26 January 2021.
