You play as Altair, a disgraced 12th-century assassin with a hit list that includes key figures in the Third Crusade. To be precise, the year is 1191, and gameplay alternates between conflict-embroiled Jerusalem, Damascus and Acre (though these locations open to the player gradually). In classic video game fashion, there's a vast conspiracy which unfolds as the story plays out. History buffs rejoice - according to Ubisoft, the story and environments follow are historically accurate.

Altair will travel the countryside attempting to locate his targets, and it’s in this way that the game follows Oblivion’s example. Beautiful environments teeming with life and all in properly brilliant graphics, rather than Oblivions good visuals spread thin over miles of terrain. Quite how much freedom you will be given is unclear, but already we’ve seen the ability to climb buildings for a better viewpoint and generally explore almost all the aspects of one city, present in the game.

A bold realtime combat system will also feature, allowing the assassin to not only take out his targets with the trademark crossbow and evade detection on the way, but also to fight his way out of tricky situations, rather than simply giving up at the first detection by the enemy. The genre isn’t exactly stealth, and for that we’re thankful. A game like this needs choice of decisions – if you want to go hurtling into Jerusalem, crossbow firing all the while, then you should be able to, even if it means your target may well have fled the city by the time you get to the destination.


Assassins Creed - The Story
The first game in the Assassin's Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history.
