Ubisoft had recently released a trailer that shows what happened ‘previously on’ Assassin’s Creed. The trailer describes the secret war that has been going on for millennia between two groups – the Assassins and the Templar. But, as the stories of the games have progressed, a greater threat has been discovered that is all set to end all life on earth. Of significance in the game’s storyline is the date December 21, 2012. The trailer also reveals information about artifacts known as pieces of Eden. These artifacts are believed to be pieces of technology left over from an ancient race of immense power that was wiped out the last time an apocalypse happened.

The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted millennia between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins seek to fight for the free will of people, while the Templars seek to control them. The first game was set during the Holy Crusades in Jerusalem. Protagonist Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad would have to jump from rooftops and sneak into groups of people in order to find and assassinate his targets.

The second game was set during the Renaissance era in Florence. The main protagonist of the II series of games – Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – is Ezio Auditore. The II series of games dealt with the evolution of Ezio as a character, who starts out as a revenge-driven teenager only to become a highly-skilled master of Assassin. Altaïr also makes an appearance in Revelation, showing the aged assassin’s last few days. The secondary protagonist of the series is Desmond Miles, who is accessing his 'genetic memory' to live the lives of his Ancestors Altaïr and Ezio so he can get some of their skills through something referred to as the 'bleeding effect'. This will help Desmond stand up to the Templars in the present time and stop their plans for world domination.
