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* 😛

Ubisoft’s E3 Trailer Teases Unannounced Games And An IP

Ubisoft’s E3 Trailer Teases Unannounced Games And An IP

Ubisoft has done a great deal to give its fans a taste of their upcoming games like Far Cry 5 and Assassin’s Creed.  But, it looks like these two aren’t the only games Ubisoft has in its pipeline. There seems to be more, which will be revealed at the E3 conference.

Supporting this statement, Ubisoft has released a trailer that teases on the new titles and an IP. The IP will be saved for reveal at the press conference, which will take place on June 12. We don’t have any information on the new IP, except the fact that it’ll be a multiplayer game with “strong live operations” and will be launched in the year 2018-19.

Take a look at the trailer here.

 

Ubisoft Responds To Fans’ Outrage Over For Honor’s Costly Microtransactions

Ubisoft Responds To Fans’ Outrage Over For Honor’s Costly Microtransactions

Following the recent discovery, that unlockable content in For Honor cost $700, there was an immense outrage from the players. They weren’t happy to pay a huge amount for the unlockables, when the original game itself doesn’t cost that much. A lot of criticism was thrown at Ubisoft, claiming that the company is trying to make a huge revenue out of these microtransactions.

After this rant, Ubisoft responded to the fans in a subtle way. The game’s director Damien Kieken said,

We never had an intention for you to unlock everything in the game. For us that doesn’t really make any sense. We applied RPG mechanics on top of a fighting game in a PvP environment. Let’s say in World of Warcraft, you would never try to unlock everything for all the characters. Same thing in any MOBA. We forecasted that most players would play one to three characters–and that’s what we see today in our game. Most players focus on one character, one hero, and others go up to two or three heroes. All of the design is based around that. The cosmetic items … for us, are endgame content.

Well, we got to agree that his statements make sense in a way. MOBA games work in a different manner than other type of games. The focus is entirely on action, thrill and winning, unlike the single campaigns in RPGs. That being said, it is suggested that the fans understand the genre of the game and work along with it.

 

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.

New Avatar Game In the Works By Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment

New Avatar Game In the Works By Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment

Avatar became a big hit when it was released in 2009, and its fan-following went on to support the game as well. The game was made by Ubisoft after they partnered with James Cameron. It was a prequel to the movie. Now, Ubisoft is again working on another game based on the series.

The new one is under development at The Division Studio, Ubisoft Massive and it’ll run on the engine, Snowdrop. The game is being stated as, “Cutting-Edge”, although there is no information supporting this statement. Ubisoft presented a teaser video, along with the commentary from James Cameron himself.

Note: The scenes in this teaser are from the old game. The new one’s footage hasn’t been released yet.

It looks like there would be four sequels to the first movie. I got this piece of info from the statement Ubisoft’s Massive managing director David Polfeldt made.

James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment changed the way we think about immersive storytelling with the first Avatar, and the ambition that they have for the forthcoming films and this game is really inspiring. It’s a privilege to work with them and we’re honored that they’ve entrusted us to create an experience worthy of the Avatar name.

Cameron received the pitch for the game from Ubisoft, by means of a prototype. However, we don’t know anything on the prototype as well. Everything has been kept hidden, to step up the anticipation and curiosity among the fans. But, Cameron revealed a little more information about the game. It looks like the game is going to be set on Pandora.

What impressed me about Massive were the group’s passion for this project and the power of its Snowdrop engine. I believe Ubisoft’s team at Massive Entertainment are absolutely the right partners to bring the beauty and danger of Pandora to life.

This is all I have now on the game or the movie sequels. Further reports will me made when new information is available.

Ubisoft is making a documentary on real-life drug cartel of Bolivia

Ubisoft is making a documentary on real-life drug cartel of Bolivia

With the plans of marketing Ghost Recon Wildlands, Ubisoft began a project to dig deep into the realistic scenarios of the present day Bolivia.

To help promote the game, Ubisoft’s UK marketing team decided to create a full length documentary based on Rusty Young’s book ‘Marching Powder’. The book talks about the real-life drug trade in Bolivia.

When this idea was condemned for many theories, the managind director Mark Slaughter said,

The goal isn’t to glamorize the drug trade and war thereon, but to create a truly compelling piece of content, which could stand alone alongside any documentary in its genre.

We wanted to delve further into the game’s fictitious narrative and its relevance to South America and the drugs trade today. We are certainly looking to introduce the brand to a wider, more mainstream audience through the documentary. As well as attracting a new audience to the franchise, the documentary also provides added content for our existing fans.

Slaughter further mentioned that, though the documentary was started as a part of the marketing process, it has now come to a stage where the game and the film will be seen as separate projects. It looks like Ubisoft has worked with a leading production team with extensive knowledge of the regions featured in the documentary and the key individuals who were a part of the drug world.

The documentary will be releasing on March 6.
