Its been ten years since the original Assassins Creed game first came out, showing us the story of Desmond Miles, as he entered the animus searching through his ancestors memories for pieces of Eden.
The franchise has developed an enormous fandom, where it was always likely a movie would also be equally as successful, but how did we get to this movie? Let me quickly remind you of what fans have gone through so far.
The story starts of as an endless war stretching over centuries between the Assassins and the Templars, but as we travel through time we begin to see there is a lot more behind this story, an ancient past with gods pulling all the strings.
But lets not give away too much though, as we first began the story through the eyes of the twelfth century master Assassin Altair Lbn-La’Ahad in Jerusalem, before being whisked away 200 years later to Italy, where we learnt the story of the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore da Frirenze.
Then after four games it was time to move away from Altair and Ezio to another famous Assassin predecessor of Desmond, Connor Kenway, an American Indian from the 18th century.
After Desmond’s death Abstergo still needed to travel back in time through Desmond’s ancestry through Edward Kenway, a pirate during the 18th century and grandfather of Connor.
We travelled back to America for the Templar Shay Cormac, with the Frenchman Arno Dorian’s story being next in line.
Jocob and Evie Frye sibling Assassins from England were the latest instalment to the story in 2015, with us fans being left high and dry of a game since that point.
But where is this move based? Is it just a remake of the storyline going back to Altair? Well apparently not.
The new movie, which is et to premier on the very first day of 2017, will be based off the videogame and be set in the same universe.
However, the movie starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, will be set in Spain during the 15th century, a completely different place to where we have seen in any game before.
Therefore I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a link from this movie, leading into the next game also likely to come out later in 2017.
We will follow the story through the memories of Callum Lynch, as he discovers he is a descendant from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins.
Through the memories of his ancestor Aguilar, he gains incredible knowledge and skill in order fight off the powerful hold of the Templars of not only the past, but also the present day.
That is all we are going to release here, from this point you are going to just have to wait until the new year to watch this thriller yourself.
If you are an Assassins Creed fan then this movie is a must watch, so make sure to pay attention carefully as I assume there will be a major connection to the game ,and something will hopefully be revealed about those clones, which we know little about and maybe if we are lucky; the goddess Juno, and her connections to not only the Assassins but also the Templars, as we discovered at the end of Syndicate.
