Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
Assassin's Creed is a historical true-based third person action-adventure game.
The main story arc of the series revolves around a bartender named Desmond Miles as he is captured by megacorporation Abstergo Industries. Using a machine known as the Animus, Desmond is forced to relive the memories of his ancestors, who were all assassins, in order to recover artifacts, called the "Pieces of Eden", for Abstergo.
The original assassin ancestor of Desmond is Altaïr Ibn la-Ahad (Arabic for "Altaïr, Son of None").
Assassination targets are mostly actual historical figures, although the timelines for their lives and causes of death have been changed to suit the games' plot.
