With Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood getting closer and closer, I felt a growing need to do something for the release. At first, I was planning a short piece on how the story has evolved since we first met Desmond back in 2007. On second thought, I changed the idea to a longer commentary on combining science fiction and historical fiction in a video game. Finally, I decided to do what I really wanted to hear: something, anything to recapitulate the series.
Before starting off on another adventure with Desmond, please spend a half hour with me as I go over all the games, books and hidden videos that make up the universe of Assassin’s Creed. If you missed part one, check it out now.
Today’s segment covers the 14th century until World War 2.
Check back tomorrow for the third and final part!
