The original name is not Ashford Anniversary. It's probably something like Ronde [number] or Branle [number]. The tune sounds familiar to me, but I would have to spend some time skimming through a bunch of vaguely titled dances on various albums to have any chance of locating it.
I'm no gamer, but my husband showed me a dance scene in Assassin's Creed to ask if it was period. If I recall correctly, it was a group of couples taking right hands and circling clockwise, then taking left hands and circling counter-clockwise-- nothing wrong with that, as far as it went, and a suitable background to the real action, but not very useful for a real dance.

One of them is Salterello II. The other is Ashford Anniversary by
Phalese from 1580. (ECD)
Here's Ashford Anniversary:
