of the conflict. You are an Assassin, a warrior
shrouded in secrecy and feared for your
ruthlessness. Your actions can throw your
immediate environment into chaos, and your
existence will shape events during this pivotal
moment in history.

tactics, and weapons of historyâs deadliest and
most secretive clan of warriors. Plan your
attacks, strike without mercy, and fight your way
