Assassin's Creed is a video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal under the direction of Patrice Désilets and Jade Raymond. It is an action-adventure game with nonlinear gameplay. It is published by Ubisoft in November 2007 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and again in April 2008 on PC (Windows), in a version subtitled Director's Cut.

The story focuses on Desmond Miles who relives the actions of his ancestor using a machine called the "Animus". His ancestor Altaïr is a murderer elite acting in the Holy Land at the time of the Third Crusade. In disgrace, Altair should perform several missions to regain his status in his community. The player freely controls the hero in four cities (Damascus, Jerusalem, Acre, and Masyaf) in search of his target. The sect or secret society of assassins presented in the game is freely inspired by the meager historical traces left by the Nizari, as well as fictional stories like Alamut novel.
