    About Assassin's Creed
    ----------------------

    The game is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy
Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the
Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the
conflict. Players will assume the role of the main character, Altair, and will
have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and truly
experience the art of a master assassin. For more information, please visit
