The creation of Jade Raymond, Corey May, and Patrice Désilets, the game’s roots are in a fictional struggle which is more thn thousand years old, between Assassins and Templars who exist to fight for freedom and peace.
The Assassin’s Creed video game franchise recounts tales that combine historical accuracy with science fiction, historical fiction, and fictitious characters. Players control a historical Assassin in over 95% of the games in the series. In the present-day framing story, players also control an Initiate or someone caught in the Assassin-Templar conflict.
Assassin’s Creed is a spiritual successor of the Prince of Persia series which takes inspiration from the novel Alamut by the Slovenian author Vladimir Bartol.
The Assassin’s Creed series features a main game like every other, with twelve main games so far, and the most recent one was released in 2020. The games are set in an open world and played from the third-person perspective.

Assassin’s Creed, a series of action-adventure video game franchises which are frequently set during the medieval ages, has received positive reviews in general for its visual ambition and complex narratives. The success of the games comes from the blend between their willingness to try new mechanics in gameplay and their pioneering use of narrative, but with multiple accolades.
Since its launch in 2007, Assassin’s Creed has become one of the most successful franchises for Ubisoft, selling over 200 million copies worldwide. Titles are made for major console and desktop platforms such as PS4, XBOX One, and Windows; however spin-offs for consoles such as PS4, Switch, and handhelds were also released. Numerous books including art books, encyclopedias and novels were also published under this franchise. In 2016 a film adaptation was released of Assassin’s Creed.
The ideas for the Assassin’s Creed series came from Ubisoft’s demand for a sequel for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It was originally developed for the PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, and other consoles in 2001. The Sands of Time was well-received by players and critics leading Ubisoft to request Romain Guy to develop more Assassin’s Creed games, which developed on seventh generation hardware.
With its portrayal of an open world, Ubisoft Montreal updated the game’s graphics to utilize the extra processing power. Narratively speaking, they wanted to move away from the Prince being next in line for the throne and instead feature someone who has to work for it. They also researched secret societies and heavily borrowed from Alamut, which is based on historical traditions of Ismaili Shia Islam.
Ubisoft leapt onto the marketing opportunity to call their new game Assassin’s Creed, as they wanted a non-playable character in the game, while Ubisoft wasn’t happy with the idea of a Prince being playable.
Ubisoft Montreal made an interesting creative decision when they moved away from the Prince to create the conflict between the Assassins and the Knights Templar. From this change, there are rich new story and gameplay elements, such as genetic memory and mandating failed missions require player reloading from a saved state.
The team set their eyes on the Holy Land in the late 12th century, primarily the cities of Masyaf (home base of the Assassin’s) and Damascus.
The game was created to use historical accuracy. This resulted in some of the planned events, such as the crossbow, being taken out of the game at the planning stage or changed in order to ensure that plays placed in this world felt realistic and immersive. The team included heralds who’d mention the Third Crusade into their dialogue as they were a constant reminder of what players could do and see within the game world.
