Within the Animus, Desmond explores the memories of


a number of Assassins, including Altar Ibn-La'Ahad, an
initially disgraced Assassin working to redeem himself
during the Third Crusade; Ezio Auditore da Firenze, an
Assassin in Italy during the late 15th and early 16th centuries of the Italian Renaissance, and Ratohnhak:ton,
otherwise known as Connor, a half-Mohawk, half-British
Assassin during the American Revolution. Throughout
these events, Desmond learns of allusions to the prophetic
end of the world in 2012 from a former Animus test subject, Subject 16: the event turns out to be a repeat of the
disaster which wiped out the ancient civilization, and he
nds out that his memories hold the key to Earth surviving the second storm. During his experiences, Desmond
is aided by holographic projections of three of the ancient races rulers: Jupiter, Minerva and Juno. After
Desmond dies to ensure Earths survival, his memories,
which have survived in cyberspace,[5] are accessed by
Abstergo, which hires a new subject to enter the Animus. The new subject relives the memories of Edward
Kenway, Ratohnhak:tons grandfather and a privateerturned-pirate during the British colonial years.[6]

The main games in the franchise were developed by


Ubisoft Montreal for the single player and Ubisoft Annecy for the multiplayer, with the handheld titles developed by Gameloft and Gryptonite Studios, with additional development by Ubisoft Montreal. The series
has been well received by the public and critics, and has
sold over 73 million copies as of April 2014, becoming Ubisofts best selling franchise.[2] The series took inspiration from the novel Alamut by the Slovenian writer
Vladimir Bartol,[3] while building upon concepts from the
Prince of Persia series.[4]

Premise

The Assassins Creed games primarily revolves around


the rivalry between two ancient secret societies: the
Assassins and the Knights Templar, and their indirect relation to an ancient species pre-dating humanity, whose
society, along with much of Earths biosphere, was destroyed by a massive solar storm. The games real-world
chronological setting begins in the year 2012, and features Desmond Miles, a bartender who is a descendant
of several lines of prominent Assassins; though raised
as an Assassin, he left his nomadic family to seek out a
more common lifestyle. He is initially kidnapped by the
megacorporation Abstergo Industries, the modern-day
face of the Knights Templar, who are aware of Desmonds
ancestral lineage. Desmond is forced to use the Animus, a device that allows him to experience his ancestral memories. Abstergo is seeking to discover the location of several artifacts, or the Pieces of Eden, that hold
great power, to control mankind and alter its fate, bringing humanity into one single unied group. Desmond also
encounters a small team of modern-day Assassins; agreeing to work with them, Desmond uses their version of
the Animus (the Animus 2.0) to continue to experience

2 Gameplay
While the game is presented through protagonist
Desmond Miles, the bulk of the game is played as
Desmond experiences the memories of his ancestors
through an advanced device called the Animus. This provides a means of a diegetic interface, showing Desmonds
ancestors health, equipment, goals, and other features as
part of the Animus interface. The Animus is based on
the player controlling the assassin to maintain the synchronization between Desmond and his ancestors memories. Performing actions that go against the Assassins
way or dying breaks the synchronization, eectively requiring the player to restart at a previous checkpoint. Furthermore, the player cannot explore outside areas that the
assassin has not experienced yet. There are also abnormalities within the Animus from previous users of the
1

device.
While playing as the Assassin characters, the games are
generally presented as third-person in an open world, focusing on stealth and free-running. The games use a mission structure to follow the main story, generally assigning the player to complete an assassination of public gureheads or a covert mission. Alternatively, several side
missions are available, such as mapping out the expansive
cities from a high perch followed by performing a leap
of faith into a haystack below, collecting treasures hidden across the cities, exploring ruins for relics, building a
brotherhood of assassins to perform other tasks, or funding the rebuilding of a city through purchasing and upgrading of shops and other features. At times, the player
is in direct control of Desmond, who by nature of the
Animus use has learned Assassin techniques through the
bleeding eect, as well as their genetic ability of Eagle
Vision, which separates friend, foe and assassination targets by illuminating people in dierent colors. Through
the Animus interface, the player can go back to retry any
past mission already completed; for example, in Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, the player achieves better synchronization results by performing the mission in a specic manner such as by only killing the missions target.
The games use the concept of active versus passive
moves, with active moves, such as running, climbing
the sides of buildings, or jumping between rooftops, more
likely to alert the attention of nearby guards. When the
guards become alerted, the player must either ght them
or break their line of sight and locate a hiding place, such
as a haystack or a well, and wait until the guards alert
is reduced. The combat system allows for a number of
unique weapons, armor, and moves, including the use of
a hidden blade set in a bracer on the Assassins arm, and
which also can be used to quietly assassinate targets.

Release history

Notes
[1] Released under the title, Assassins Creed: Liberation HD,
for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

La'Ahads memories during the time of the Third Crusade. Desmond begins to witness events after Altar
breaks all three tenets of the Assassin Brotherhood while
attempting to stop Robert de Sabl from taking a Piece
of Eden. Al Mualim, the Brotherhoods leader, demotes
Altar to Novice and tasks him with assassinating the nine
Knights Templars, including de Sabl, to regain his former status. Altars quest eventually leads him to face
de Sabl in the presence of King Richard I of England
warning the King of de Sabl's plot to kill him. Altar defeats de Sabl, but with his last words, de Sabl
reveals that there were ten Templars, the last being Al
Mualim, who now holds the Piece of Eden. Altar returns
to face Al Mualim, struggling to ght through the illusions created by the Piece, but eventually kills Al Mualim.
When Altar recovers the piece, heand those watching
the Animuswitness a holographic map showing locations across the globe where other artifacts are located.
Desmond is pulled from the Animus, and was going to
be killed, but his life is spared by Lucy Stillman, an Assassin working as a mole within Abstergo, as she claims
they might need to further examine his memories later.
He comes to learn that a former test subject had left messages only Desmond can see, foretelling of the end of the
world in 2012.
The rst Assassins Creed introduced elements that would
remain cornerstones of the rest of the series. The game
attempts to create historical versions of Masyaf (the
Brotherhoods location), Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus,
and incorporates a number of documented historical gures into the story. The virtualized Animus system, free
running, climbing, stealth, and parkour elements were all
present in this title, as well as the initial formulation of
the combat system. The player would have to complete a
number of side quests before they would be able to obtain
an assassin quest from a local Brotherhood guidemaster
in each city, though future games would abandon this prerequisite.

that Borgia has since become Pope Alexander VI, using
the Churchs inuence to strengthen the Templars. Ezio
invades Vatican City and confronts Borgia, discovering
that the Papal sta is also a Piece of Eden. Defeating
Borgia but sparing his life, Ezio uses both the Apple and
the Papal sta to reveal a chamber of ancient technology. Inside, he is addressed by a hologram of a humanoid
female that calls herself Minerva who speaks directly to
Desmond through Ezio. Minerva explains how her society had pre-dated humanitys, but a great disaster nearly
wiped them out, and warns that another event is due to
occur soon, putting the fate of humanity in Desmonds
hands. At this discovery, Desmond and his allies nd the

eventually captures him and recovers the Apple. Cesare
is taken to prison in Viana, Spain but manages to escape

Cesare and the remaining loyal Borgia troops, and eventually Ezio throws Cesare from the castle walls, killing him.
With no perceived further threats, Ezio takes to hide the
Apple under the Colosseum. In the present, Desmond is
able to navigate through the underground chambers beneath the Colosseum to locate the Apple. As he picks it
up, Desmond is witness to another hologram gure, calling herself Juno, and who controls Desmond to stab Lucy
(because Lucy has defected to the Templars) before he
falls into a coma.
Brotherhood shares many of the same features as the previous game though it takes place primarily in Rome. Similar to the villa, the player is able to spend money to buy
and upgrade shops and other facilities throughout the city
as to increase revenue they can collect from it; however,
the player will be required to destroy Borgia towers that
control various sections of the city before they can do so.
The Brotherhood of Assassins is introduced, by which,
after saving citizens from certain events, the player can
invite these citizens as Assassins; they can then be dispatched to remote locations across Europe to gain experience and money, or can be called in to help the player
directly in a mission. For the rst time in the series, the
game features online multiplayer. Players play as Abstergo employees, who, through the use of the Animus,
take on the genetic memories of Renaissance Templars
in various game modes.[7]

Similar to the rst game, Assassins Creed takes place


in historical recreations of Venice, Florence, Forl, San
Gimignano, and the Tuscan countryside, and incorporates events during that period as part of the story. Missions are divided into main story missions, themselves
divided into memory sequences reected points along
Ezios life, and side missions which can be accomplished
at any time; this approach to mission structure remains
consistent in the other games in the series. The Monteriggioni villa provides several functions which can be expanded on by paying money for upgrades of surrounding
buildings, or by purchasing artwork, weapons, and costumes for the villa; in turn, the villa will generate wealth

Luis Santangel, who asks Ezio to rescue his friend
Christoa Corombo from a presumed Templar trap set
up by Rodrigo Borgia. Ezio rescues Christoa from this

it is his duty to rescue the Assassins, sets out for Spain to

Ezio nds out that Torquemada was ordered to commit

to believe that God desired it so. Ezio also nds out that
his close allies, Luis Santangel and Raphael Sanchez, are
in fact Assassins themselves. When nally confronting
Torquemada, Ezio chooses not to kill him thinking that
Torquemada is merely misled by Borgia and not a Templar himself. Ezio then returns to Italy to continue his

stranger, who appears to be of Asian origin as well. After
killing him, Jun reveals that she was a former concubine,
now on the run from servants of the Chinese Emperor
Zhengde, and explains how her former master rescued her
from his inuence. After returning to his home, Ezio tells
Soa and his children to leave, knowing that others would
come. He then teaches Jun the key to liberating her people from the Emperors inuence. Later that night, Ezios
villa is attacked by more of Shao Juns enemies, and after a ght, he successfully eliminates them all. The next
morning, Ezio hands Shao Jun a small box and tells her
it may come to use one day, but only if you lose your

his wife Soa and their daughter Flavia, despite suering
from heart problems. While resting on a bench and after
having a short conversation with a young man with a scar
on his face, similar to the sort of man he used to be, he
