How about we have a little bit of fun here, last week a friend forwarded me a photo containing a “supposed” plot twist for Ubisoft’s up and coming Watch Dogs. The picture showed Aiden Pierce the main protagonist of Watch Dogs, hood sliding a car, guns blazing and a caption as follows “Watch Dogs Plot Twist, is a modern day assassin, descendant of Altair, Ezio, Conner and is Desmond’s nephew”.
For some of you those names in quotation may not mean a lot but they are in fact all playable characters of the Assassins Creed franchise. A franchise established back in 2007 which features and flaunts an amazingly powerful piece of technology. A device known as the “Animus” and using it you can re live memories of your ancestors encoded in the users DNA. That is just an example of the powerful technology that is present in the Assassins Creed universe. What we should really focus on is the incredible back story the universe has introduced. A society of assassins, masters of stealth, lurking in the shadows in the midst of war against the Templars. A corporation of global proportions consisting of many fronts with only one goal, world domination. Unfortunately for our heroic assassins over the years they have been fighting against the odds and losing the battle.
