Moreover, Anvil is used for the game’s engines. The game 1st came into the market on 13th November 2007. Furthermore, the game is based on the novel Alamut by the Slovenian writer Vladimir Bartol, while building upon concepts from the Prince of Persia series. Also, the video game has 11 main games to date. The latest release in the video game series is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on October 5 2018.
The Assassin’s Creed mainly revolves around the rivalry and conflict between two ancient secret societies — the Assassins and the Knights Templar. The Assassin’s represent freedom whereas the Knights Templar represents order. Moreover, their indirect relation to an ancient species pre-dating humanity, “those who came before” or “precursors”. They were technologically ahead and apparently the creators of humanity. However, their society and much of Earth’s biosphere are destroyed by a massive solar storm thousands of years ago.
The main setting focuses on the efforts of the Assassins in stopping the Knights Templars from finding and securing various artefacts of the ancient species, “Pieces of Eden”. They focus on combating the Templars, who evolve with the world and develop into a mega-corporation conglomerate with multiple branches called Abstergo Industries. Abstergo secretly develops “Animus”. Animus is a computerized system that can allow one to “re-live” and experience the memories of previous people through remainings of their genetic material. They do this in order to find the “Pieces of Eden”. The initial games are on this story between the Assassins and the Knights of Templar. It further progresses into new storylines later.
The players play the game through Desmond’s experiences because of the Animus. The Animus depends on the player controlling the assassin to maintain the sync between Desmond and his ancestor’s memories. However, actions that go against the Assassin’s way or dying breaks the sync and leads the player to restart at a checkpoint. Also, the player cannot explore outside areas that the assassin has not experienced yet.
The games are presented from a 3rd person point of view in an open world environment. They use a mission structure to follow the main story by assigning the player to complete an assassination of public figureheads or a covert mission. Moreover, several side missions are also available. In addition, sometimes, the player is in direct control of Desmond, who knows Assassin techniques through the bleeding effect, as well as the genetic ability of Eagle Vision, which separates friend, foe and assassination targets by showing people in different colours. Also, through the Animus interface, the player can retry any past mission already completed
The games use the concept of “active” versus “passive” moves. Active moves include running, climbing the sides of buildings, or jumping between rooftops. Therefore, alerts the guards. Because of this the player must either fight them or break their line of sight and hide. The combat system allows for a number of unique weapons, armour, and moves. It can also be used to assassinate targets quietly.
