Assassin's Creed is a video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game is due for release in November 2007.
On September 22, 2007, Ubisoft announced the PC version has been delayed until early 2008.
The game takes place during the Third Crusade, in the year 1191. The player assumes the role of Altaïr (الطائر, Arabic, "The Flying One"), a member of the Hashshashin sect (the original "assassins"), whose objective is to slay the nine historical figures who are propagating the Crusades.
As the player finds and kills these targets, their conspiracy is unveiled. The player will be able to travel through three cities: Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus.
