Assassin’s Creed Franchise Backstory

Game Informer has an article up looking at the backstory for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. This will help catch you up on events in the previous games & DLC in preparation for Assassin Creed III’s launch on 10/30/12. Here’s a portion of the article:

“Few video game stories are more involved and detailed than Assassin’s Creed. Mixing present day conspiracy theories, true historical events, and the imaginary tale of two warring organizations fighting over humanity’s destiny, it’s safe to say that there’s a lot to keep track of.

We’ve boiled things down to some of the fundamentals so you can get everything straight before Assassin’s Creed III releases on October 30. Our article is filled with SPOILERS about all the Assassin’s Creed games and  available DLC, but we promise to remain spoiler-free about Assassin’s Creed III.  We’ve also tried to leave out characters, events, and storylines that we don’t think will be relevant moving forward.

The First Civilization

To wrap your head around everything else, start with the idea of the mysterious civilization that existed before humanity. Assassin’s Creed posits that this advanced humanoid civilization once lived on Earth, but they all died off in a devastating cataclysm thousands of years ago. 

Before this ancient people were wiped out, they crafted two important creations for purposes of the Assassin’s Creed story. First, they built the Pieces of Eden, unique and powerful items of technology that offered strange powers to their wielders, from changing the flow of time to controlling minds.”

We had some videos on the site today along with some Resident Evil 6 reviews & impressions. I haven’t played it personally, but the reviews for the game aren’t that great. Are you going to pick it up tomorrow (10/2/12)? Played a little more of Mists of Pandaria today, that’s about it. Didn’t get a lot of sleep yesterday due to working on the podcast. Speaking of which, that was posted late last night/early this morning, so be sure to check that out. The video project I’ve been working on is still on-going. Planning to work more on that tomorrow (10/2/12) assuming I’m not as tired then as I was today. As always, thanks for checking out the blog and for any and all comments.
