Assassins Creed is a computer and console electronic game developed and published by Ubisoft Entertainment in 2007. Assassin’s Creed was hailed as one of the best games in the third-person stealth genre, thanks to its stunning visuals and unique story.
In Assassin’s Creed, players assume the role of Desmond Miles, a modern-day bartender who has been kidnapped and forced to test a computer that allows people to relive their ancestors’ memories using their own DNA. Miles travels back in time to 1191, where he assumes the part of a Muslim assassin fighting the Knights Templar and unraveling the mystery of sacred objects and ancient organizations. Miles is dealing with the side effects of the flashbacks, so the plot is sometimes disrupted by modern-day interludes.
In Assassin’s Creed, the focus is on avoiding conflict rather than finding it out. As the game progresses, a meter monitors a character’s visibility and the state of the environment; character commands allow a player to blend in with crowds and maintain a low profile to avoid detection. Eagle vision is a one-of-a-kind skill that allows players to see allies and enemies in various colors, making it easier to avoid harm and locate allies. Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed was a surprise hit, with both commercial and critical acclaim. It spawned a series of graphic novels as well as a variety of sequels and spin-offs, the most notable of which were Assassin’s Creed 2 (2009) and Assassin’s Creed 3 (2010). (2012).
