History’s Conspiracy Theories Vs Assassin’s Creed. Read To Know Which Conveys The Truth!

History’s Conspiracy Theories Vs Assassin’s Creed. Read To Know Which Conveys The Truth!

Forget the future! We still have a lot to learn about the history of humanity. For all that we know, many historical events have a lot of controversies surrounding them. Even today, such events are being debated on a global level. Yet, the people are still unsure about the truth behind them; the reason being that the official outcomes of such incidents are laden with conspiracy theories.

Were those conspiracies true? If yes, why did the government issue contrasting statements?. None knows the answers to these questions. We can only assume the reasons behind them.

“Dude, you need to stop smoking weird shit!”, might be your immediate thought.

Well, there is a reason why I began speaking about conspiracies of the past. The legendary video game series, Assassin’s Creed, has a habit of roping in historical events to its story line. Each installment of the series showed historical connections of the highest order. We’ve all seen and played through those events. But, not many of us know that those connections relate to some of the biggest conspiracies.

Don’t worry! This history lesson isn’t going to be boring like school. So, grab your popcorn and get ready!

The “Philly” Experiment Of 1943 Did Happen

The Conspiracy: In October 28 1943, the U.S government conducted an experiment on the naval ship USS Eldridge, in Philadelphia. Their objective was to turn the ship invisible and to do a time travel to the past. That experiment went horribly wrong and resulted with the crew on board embedded to the ship’s metal structure. Besides, there were other claims that before these consequences happened, the ship did disappear from Philadelphia and reappear in Norfolk, Virginia.

Official statement: Such experiments were never conducted.

Assassin’s Creed: The game says the experiment did happen under the order of the Templars. But, the ship didn’t travel back in time. Instead, it traveled forward in time and stayed there for a solid 18 minutes; thanks to a Piece of Eden. However, a mail from Abstergo industries shows that the company decided not to carry out the experiment any further, owing to avert time paradoxes.

Houdini’s Disappearance Act Became Real

Official statement: Going by the records, Houdini’s death was straightforward. He succumbed to inflammation of the abdominal lining and a ruptured appendix in October 1926.

The Conspiracy: Houdini was murdered! The causes of death were too eccentric to think the death happened otherwise. One of the good things about the people of the past is that, they were too skeptical about such proceedings. They weren’t ready to jump to conclusions as we do now. The modern day people readily accept things telecasted by the media.

Assassin’s Creed: Houdini carried a piece of Eden. It allowed him to do all amazing magic tricks, which people thought he did on his own. However, the Templars murdered him to get a hold of the piece of Eden, and had many resources to cover up the incident.

The Curious Case Of JFK

Official Statement: JFK was killed by a lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963.

The Conspiracy: Many believe otherwise. They didn’t incline to the narrow thought process of a single man’s revenge on Kennedy. Considering the political situation of the world in that period of time, they had their doubts laid upon various entities like a mafia group, or the soviets or some black sheep under his presidency.

Assassin’s Creed: The game suggested a rather crazier theory. It seems Kenny had something really important that the Templars wanted. An extraction team was sent to kill him and retrieve the prize. The extraction group included Oswald himself, a videographer Abraham Zapruder, and Kennedy’s own driver. They killed him, and after the assassination, a piece of Eden was used to project a distraction.

The Tunguska Event Was Orchestrated

Official Statements: Back in 1908, a mysterious object exploded right in the middle of Russia. The explosion is said to have floored about 800 miles of forest. It was supposedly caused by a meteor and the entire event was called the Tunguska Event.

The Conspiracy: A sudden explosion in the middle of nowhere? A meteor you say? Well, we didn’t hear any news of a meteor onset nor did we find any evidence of it. These were the thoughts of many theorists. Some of the theories were pointed out at ‘aliens’, ‘a secret bomb testing’ and even a ‘black hole effect’. As if those weren’t the worst theories, a few people claimed it was the work of Nikola Tesla.

Assassin’s Creed: The game backs up the conspiracy that Nikola Tesla did it! Well, he should have probably been pissed off about that thief, Thomas Edison. Actually, it seems the Templars got hold of yet another piece of Eden back in 1908. They took it to a research facility near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River. Assassins received this information and approached Tesla to destroy the facility. Responding to their call for help, Tesla used his wireless power transmitting tower to destroy the facility.

Hitler’s Death Wasn’t A Suicide

Official Statement: Hitler committed a suicide in his military bunker.

The Conspiracy: The people didn’t completely believe the statement and were thoroughly skeptical. Knowing Hitler, he wasn’t the kind of man who would commit a suicide. Hence, this thought was followed by many conspiracies. The most popular claim is that the bodies found in the bunker were doubles and that he and Eva Braun fled for Argentina.

Assassin’s Creed: Hitler did try to escape under the noses of the allied forces. But, he didn’t get too far. The assassin’s tracked him down and killed him while he was on his way out. Schade!

Human Evolution Happened Because Of Aliens

Official Statement: Humans evolved from Apes.

The Conspiracy: Some theories state that aliens came to earth and altered the genome of the homo sapiens. This led way to the belief that the human intelligence was a result of one of those alterations made by the aliens. It even suggests that who we call today as gods, were once aliens who visited this planet.

Assassin’s Creed: Ever wondered how some of the ancient structures were so finely built within a less span of time, with absolutely no advanced technology? Well, as per the game, aliens were the first beings on this planet. They were a telepathic humanoid species known as the First Civilization. But, those aliens needed a bigger workforce to support their society. Hence, they modified the genome of the unsuspecting apes which led to the birth of mankind. The aliens used their technology and the human resources to build those amazing ancient structures. Later, mankind grew tired of being slaves and rebelled against those aliens, chasing them away in the process. The bad part of this is, the advanced technology the aliens brought, was also gone along with them.

That being said, doesn’t this analysis suggest us something? The answer is this.

Considering that the writers of Assassin’s Creed did enough research to back up their claims about history, whatever they have written might indeed be true. Replacing the pieces of Eden with some real-time powerful artifact and replacing the Templars with the so called ‘Illuminati’, all their conclusions on the events look to make some sense. If they are indeed true, we might have been looking at history the wrong way all this time.

But on the flip side, what the writers penned might also be conspiracy theories of their own.

You be the judge!

I really need to stop smoking weird shit! *Grabs a beer, instead* 😛

6 Reasons To Feel Excited About The Next Assassin’s Creed Game

6 Reasons To Feel Excited About The Next Assassin’s Creed Game

The latest news that we had on Assassin’s Creed, is that it is going to be titled as ‘Origins’. The location is to be set in Egypt and will have two main characters. The first image from the game surfaced online on Reddit, and it revealed one of the characters sailing a boat on a river. The gamers believe it to be, the river Nile.

These titbits about Assassin’s Creed Origins has created a wave of excitement among its fans. But, if you think these are the only details that we can chew on, I got some news for you. There are more information on this game, to feel excited about.

Origins Is Being Made By The Team Which Made Black Flag

Earlier, Black Flag’s director Ashraf Ismail stated that Egypt will be an interesting setting for the next AC game and he and his team were working on an unannounced project. Just as expected, the next game is set in Egypt and is titled as Origins. A reddit poster too, confirmed this piece of information.

While Black Flag had more stuff to do with the waters, Origin might focus more on the sands of the desert, especially the pyramids.

Meanwhile, The Action Will Continue In The Modern Days

Origins will boast 21st century assassination action sequences. Though Desmond isn’t with us anymore, the battle will rage on in the present day, in one form or the other. These sequences will involve the modern day world, buildings, weapons, people and structures. An assassin who is a deadly sniper, would seem to be the highest possibility of being our protagonist. Air assassinations will have an entire different meaning now. The very thought of it, boils the blood in excitement.

Many Historical Time Periods

This is an interesting addition to the game. Designing and managing the environment for many timelines of the same location is hard. The game’s sequences have to be organised in the right manner, so the timelines shift with the flow of the story. With the location being an Egyptian city, it will be a wonder to see how the developers represent that place under different timelines. Will they stick to their imaginations or will they extract details from the history itself? Only time will tell.

Open World Like Skyrim

The focus will be more on exploration unlike any other Assassin’s Creed game. This would mean, that you can wander about and play as much as you want, without worrying just about the objectives. Ubisoft promises to offer an Egyptian open-world, which would be comparable to one of those made by Bethesda. If that is the case, it’ll open wider options to carry out an assassination. It’ll also be interesting to see, how we could put the open world’s environment to good use for our assassination attempts.

We Cannot Avoid Boats And Waters

This is totally expected out of the AC4 team. With Black Flag focussing primarily on naval battles, Egypt will also have boats and fights to be made on the mediterranean sea. However, it would be insightful to see, how far these naval battles would go. There might be additional changes to the gameplay and fighting styles, with different attacking weapons and exploring the ship’s hull for more options to defend.

Origins Will Run On An Updated Version Of Anvil Engine

Most of the AC games have been running on the Anvil game engine. Unity and Syndicate were the only ones that ran on the next version, AnvilNext 2.0. Going a step further, Origins will run on a further upgraded engine and will look to deliver twice as much as Unity or Syndicate. Graphics, sounds, gameplay and every other possible detail might change in a bigger way. It looks like we’re up for one amazing experience with Origins.

The excitement is real, with more information playing out on this game. We can expect a lot more, before the game officially releases. For AC fans who are tired of seeing the usual, Origins would look certainly look to prove otherwise with the addition of the mentioned changes.

 

 

 

 

 

Ubisoft Announces A TV Show For Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft Announces A TV Show For Assassin’s Creed

Many Assasssin’s Creed fans were awaiting this good news to come along and it finally has. Making a TV show based on the game sounds much better and makes perfect sense, instead of focussing on short-run movies. This would probably increases the Assassin’s Creed fan base through the TV show and also would act as a visual treat for the already existing fans.

During a recent Ask Me Anything (AMA) session, the game’s head of the content Aymar Azaizia responded positively to a fan’s question on an Assassin’s Creed TV show. He further explained, that the production process of this TV show will take a lot of time, as it is important for Ubisoft to provide a series that is worth watching. But, no other information was provided by him. Questions on the show’s actor who will play the protagonist, the in-game character of the assassin and the ancestors, were all left unanswered. Suspense and curiosity is essential for a show’s success, as the thrill will wear off, if every detail is disclosed.

Speaking about success, fans also asked if the TV show will succeed unlike its movie counterpart. The movie was a big disappointment among the fans and received poor ratings and more criticisms. Azaizia’s comments show hope, that Ubisoft is taking much time and consideration into the show, to provide a proper and a blockbuster TV series.

It is pretty clear, that the game turned a bit redundant with many sequels of it releasing on the gaming platforms. So, it is obvious the fans would expect something different out of a movie, which it didn’t. Now, with this announcement, their expectations will be even higher than ever.

Let’s hope, Ubisoft doesn’t make yet another failure out of Assassin’s Creed TV show.

A Rumor On The Next Assassin’s Creed Game

A Rumor On The Next Assassin’s Creed Game

Did you know that the next Assassin’s Creed movie is rumored to be subtitled as, ‘Empire’? Well, am not sure about that either. But, recently there has been a screenshot from the yet unreleased game, lurking about in the internet.

The image was originally posted in reddit claiming to be a leaked image from Assassin’s Creed Empire, which had zero upvotes and a lot of comments demanding the source. The screenshot features a lightly armored, heavily armed figure standing in front of an open stone doorway. Unfortunately, the image is of low quality, just like an image that surfaces up time and time again claiming that an UFO has been spotted.

assassins-creed-empire-leaked-screenshot-rumor-481x389

There are some symbols that can be recognized from the image. An icon can be found at the top of the enterance that is similar to the symbols used for area transitions in Assassin’s Creed. The next one is the inscription on the shield. Apart from that the protagonist’s costume looks like he is from the parts of Greece. From my perspective, he looks more of a warrior than an assassin.

This rumor is best left ignored, if you ask me. However, you can comment in your thoughts and opinions on this, if you figure out something.

Producer Basil Iwanyk talks on his Splinter Cell movie

Producer Basil Iwanyk talks on his Splinter Cell movie

If you have watched Assassin’s Creed movie, you would have been pissed off on how mediocre it turned out to be. When you are an Assassin’s Creed fan especially, the frustration and disapppointment will be more. It was a box office flop and didn’t rake any profits.

With the movie adaptation of Splinter Cell on the move, it has triggered a cloud of doubts on how well will it do at the box office. Producer Basil Iwanyk assured that the Splinter Cell adaptation will do much better than the Assassin’s Creed movie.

He quoted,

Assassin’s Creed had a very specific world to it and a very specific storyline, character, all that stuff” but as “Splinter Cell really is a first-person shooter game” and it doesn’t have a “very specific backstory,

He further added that, the movie will look “badass” and will turn out to be a hardcore “Tom Hardy action movie”. Yes, Tom Hardy will be the star of this movie. Basil further quoted that, Hardy is a gamer and very badly wanted to play the role in the movie adaptation.

I personally feel, Splinter Cell will do good at the box office than Assassin’s creed owing to the script, and Tom Hardy’s performance.

What are your thoughts?
