Original post
Ok, so many of us read about this a while back when a list of domains purchased by Ubisoft was published. I just came back from my vacation and decided to check out some of these domains (http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/08/23/what-is-assassins-creed-initiate) and found that http://acinitiates.com/ had something quite interesting set up.

Certainly worth checking out. You can log in using your Uplay account.

Interesting...

Looks like some kind of prologue, although I think there`ll be a lot more than just Desmond, the tabs on the top lead me to believe this..

Edit: The NoHo description from google refers to somewhere not in NY.

I'm liking this thread already. Nice one Slayer.If you compare the location Desmond is kidnapped from on the Explore map, versus Google Maps, it seems to match somewhere called "NoHo".Upon further inspection (using google) - "Welcome to Noho, the neon glowing cocktail lounge you can find, once the shutters go up, at the hilton street end of the northern quarter, on Stevenson square."Coincidence?

Ya, but for obvious reason, the devs couldn't use the real name of the bar so they probably took the location, but changed the name.

I didn't say you were wrong or anything:D Its clearly not coincidence, that's why I wanted to know the name of the Bar in the AC Universe, because its obviously based on the real-life one and they changed the name for Copyright reasons..

09-01-2012, 03:51 PM
I should have remembered that they had given the name. But I guess thanks would have been more appropriate, lol.

On an unrelated note, remember how the in one of the Desmond missions, the windows in Abstergo revealed a message? The code at the bottom of the, eh, boxes, reminds me of that.

I'm not getting my hopes up, but is it anything?

NoHo actually means "North of Houston Street", which is a neighbourhood in NY.
The NoHo bar is somewhere else entirely.

Yes, the scene is obviously supposed to take place right before the beginning of AC1, but the facial graphics are more advanced and in line with what we've seen from AnvilNext. Could this be a scene from the beginning of the game? Maybe instead of a voice-over narration, they'll actually recap the events by showing us these events from Desmond's life?

Some of the pics on the page are pre-production art from AC2 and ACB. They may not be actual locations but rather representations of the style the designers had in mind for locations that were later refined. In other words, that pic could simply be a different take on the modern assassins' HQ in AC2.

Well it just means they used the new engine to create these images. and the guards needed a face so they took something they already had in good quality.

I do hope the recap for ac3 is great with new footage. maybe even some clay/lucy at abstergo buisiniss. But i doubt that.

I'm glad Desmond actually looks more like himself in these images than in ACR. Of course there are blurry black & white pics, we still can't be sure what his final model will be, but it looks to me like they updated his face on the e-mails displayed on that Facebook page to look more detailed than the ACB model. He looks like a cross between his ACB and ACR model which would be perfect.

The Gamescom Desmond was a CGI render, and he looked like an absolute smack head in that bit lolol.

As for the model, he definitely looks more like his AC1/2 model than any other. Although he's got the back pack.

Maybe because it's set around the time of AC1, they've gave him his look from then? I'm not sure.. whatever the case, they've sorted his nose out. He looks better for it.

Desmond's face in ACR looked weird only because of the "Artificial" lighting on the Animus Island. I think he looked perfectly fine in the Synch Nexus. The same goes for the ending cinematic.
After all, it was just a more detailed face of his model.

More on topic: Do we know how many days Desmond was in the abstergo lab? Trying to figure out when we can expect his escape to be updated on the website.

All I can remember in terms of dates is that when they were exploring the coliseum in AC:B it was 72 days from 21st December, which made that day the 10th of October right?

But i think we will see some updates tomorrow as well.

They could have made this even more cool by putting notes in places. Like given us clues and on a certain date go to a certain place. But given that loads of us here are from all over the world that wouldn't happen. As for Desmonds new face, it looks like a nice cross between AC:B face and AC:R face, like they both had a baby with each other. It looks great!

At least now we'll know how much time really passed in AC2, ACB & ACR. I still don't believe that AC2 was just 2 days and suddenly in ACB we jumped from September 9th to October 10th.
But, nonetheless, now we'll have to wait a week for the next major event - the escape. Also - we'll finally learn in which city or town that hideout from AC2 was. And maybe even where William was before ACR.

Abstergo's building in AC2 is based in Rome, Italy. (Very notable in AC2 when you escape and you see all the signs in the parking lot)

The hideout, in AC2, I think is also Rome, it's fairly close to Monterigionni I know that, which is of course the set for ACB

During the escape from Abstergo, the signs of the parking lot were in italian. However, I dont remember any hint that indicated of its location being Rome, and that goes to both abstergo building and the assassin´s hideout.

And abstergo knew about Ezio for quite some time before AC1, at least that is what AC the Chain claims

We don't really know either way if it was planned or not. There were no signs in Italian in AC1 and you couldn't really see much out of the windows. I don't know if even the devs knew at that point where they would take the next game, if there was indeed going to be a next game. Italy might have been chosen as a random location when they started planning for AC2. Desmond's story may have been planned from the beginning, but it's clear the ancestor bits have always been rather flexible. I think they only really started planning ahead more by the time AC2 turned out to be a massive success and Ubisoft decided to turn the series into a yearly franchise.

Not really, no. I just wanted to point it out since we regularly get people here claiming the AC story has been planned out right from the beginning. In the first game there were only hints of a larger story, but it's entirely possible the devs were just making it up as they went along until ACB.

It might not have been planned from the beggining but, at the end, it's all coming together really nicely. Oh, and inconsistencies in Altair's Codex when compared to the memory seals?

Desmond: There are books, letters, documents... all sorts of source material from back then. Some of it seems to contradict what the Animus is showing me.
Vidic: Anyone can write a book, and they can put whatever they want on its pages. Anything. Used to be that we thought the world was flat.
Desmond: Some people still do.
Vidic: Yes, and they publish books about it. Or that the moon landing was a hoax. I believe there's also a book that claims the Earth was created in seven days. A best-seller, too!

Yeah SixKeys pretty much summed it up for me. There wasn't any evidence in AC1 that it was in Italy, even when vidic and Lucy walked out, there was this blue barrier thing which couldn't let you see past, so all of that suggests to me that the location of abstergo wasn't decided in AC1

Also, The map which pops up from the apple has many locations marked on it, to me, that shows in AC1 they left it open to be located anywhere, (wherever they wanted to go in AC2) abstergo could have been in Hawaii for all we could have known. But again that's just my opinion.

I seem to recall having watched an interview on Gamespot or GTTV or something.. where some developer (Possibly Alex Amancio) said that they'd had Desmond's core story planned out from day 1, but the ancestors have been a case of doing it as they go along.

Of course, I've got no link to back this up, but I definitely did see it.

I'm with Lights, I'm fairly sure AC3 will be more about putting closure to things that have been opened, rather than bringing up stuff that's not a majorly open storyline.

Meh, I doubt it. If that were the case Lucy wouldn't be asking questions about it. Either way these are all messages we know Desmond was intended to read, so we don't know how legit they really are.

Well, I'm quite sure she knew enough about Subject 15. She's the one who told everyone it was a pregnant woman after all and she'd been on the project long before S16 came along, so it's likely she worked with her in person and S15, like S16 and Desmond, would not have been allowed to roam the halls of Abstergo freely, severely limiting the chances of something happening to her that Lucy would not have been aware of.

That's what it seems. William wants to break Desmond out of abstergo, but the mole warns him not to, obviously aware that Vidic is armed and ready, yet William goes ahead with it, thus resulting in the death of the assassins. Shame.

Edit: as pointed out by InfectedNation, it wasn't William, was in fact the assassin (my mistake).

InfectedNation

Nope, William tells an unknown Assassin that his mole (most likely Lucy) has confirmed that Desmond is in Rome, the unknown prepares for a rescue, William warns them not to, but seemingly the assassin doesn't listen and his team are killed in the attempt.

EDIT: The unknown Assassin appears to be called Adriano Maestranzi.

True, but Lucy was tremendously guilty over Clay's death, and perhaps they experimented on Leila – a former employee – since she was pregnant, or that they might have uncovered something about her lineage and that she happened to be pregnant at the time.

Also, Lucy might have become friends with Leila because she came straight out of university, and Leila might have actually been nice to her while she was there to gain her friendship.

Don't forget that Vidic was the one to order the disposal team, and he might not have told Lucy, because it would have been more convenient to just say "an accident happened" than to tell her that her friend was disposed of because Abstergo had no more use of her.

Seeing as they're bringing up the e-mails on the site, I'm assuming they plan to tell us something about Leila in AC3. I always assumed she was just a throaway reference to the sinister nature of Abstergo, to show us how mysterious and aggressive they're acting even towards their own employees who ask uncomfortable questions (Lucy).

I don't really think AC3 was planned to be in America. At the Assassin's Creed Panel at Pax Prime 2012, Philippe Bergeron said that AC3 was supposed to be set in modern days and that when they decided to make it in America, he pushed the team to make modern days gameplay for Desmond.

Is this the group that was slaughtered towards the end of AC1? The one that went against William's orders? Does that mean Lucy deliberately lured them there by asking for help or did she really not suspect they would get killed? After all, we don't know how much contact she had with William during her time at Abstergo, if at all.

GLHS
09-07-2012, 09:41 AM
Well, there goes my theory. :|

I think the theory went out the window when it was mentioned that Leila was an Abstergo employee. Why would they put an employee, who may or may not already know too much, into the Animus? They don't just put random people into the project. Their background and lineage is a good amount of what they go off for a good candidate. It's indicated they she may have known something she wasn't supposed to anyway, hence her death. If Leila and Subject 15 were the same person, Lucy would've known who she was, and not referred to her as Subject 15. Plus, she said they were friends anyway. Friends don't usually refer to one another as "that girl who did this, or was involved with this." At the very least, she would've said something like "Leila, Subject 15." Or "my friend Leila, who was Subject 15."

It really seems that they're hinting that the rescue attempt was just staged by Abstergo to make Desmond feel more threatened and isolated. Watching the YouTube clip of the event, it really seems fake. Especially when Vidic turns off the audio and then knows for sure that when he tunes back in the Assassins will be dead. I wouldn't be surprised if Leila never even existed, and was just another part of the staged environment Abstergo is creating to try to manipulate Desmond in some direction.

what if Abstergo interrupted the phone call between William and this Adriano and Adriano wasn't able to understand his orders and tried to rescue Desmond?

I agree. Another question now, which I think has been raised before, is where Abstergo really want to lead Desmond to. Do they suspect he is the one who can save the world? Do they know he is the one who can open the Temple? Etc..

Doubtful, S16 killed him self to help Desmond and stop abstergo from finding out what he knew about "what would come to be". The chain is just showing us that they knew about Minerva prior to Desmond seeing the message. Thats just my guess.

In The Lost Archive DLC for ACR it's revealed that Lucy started out as an assassin but at some point went over to the Templar side. She was already working for them by the time they captured Desmond and was simply acting as if she was still an assassin up until until her death. As far as we know, Desmond still doesn't know any of this. I suspect he will find out in AC3.

Erudito is the person or group of hackers who sent Desmond the passwords to his teammates' e-mail in ACB. It's unknown whether Erudito is affiliated with the assassins or working independently. He or they seem to have something against Templars at any rate and are often hacking into Abstergo's systems to leak information to the public. So far Erudito has mostly played a part in the Project Legacy Facebook game (now defunct).

EDIT: Looks like Monteriggioni is still blurred. Also IDK if its chrome or the site but none of the events/places ect show up.

It's up with the location of the Assassin hideout where Lucy took Desmond in AC2. The weird thing is that it's marked as a location on the outskirts of Rome, and the timestamp occurs 18 hours after the Escape From Abstergo memory, so it almost seems like it took 18 hours for Lucy to get to the hideout even though it wasn't very far away at all. Don't know if there's any significance to that or not. It is interesting that the warehouse hideout was in Rome all along and not Florence like many of us believed.

As for Monterrigioni being blurred, I'm pretty sure that's just a lack of higher resolution satellite imagery for that location in the map system that the AC Initiates site is using. If you click on the logo in the lower right of the map that says "Powered by esri", you'll get to the site that is the source of the map data. I went and looked at one of their demo maps, and the close-up Monterrigioni satellite imagery is blurred there as well. Also interesting, the building complex where Abstergo is marked is all really like that, triangular buildings and all.

Either there were Abstergo agents after her who weren't aware she and Vidic were both in on the escape plan and she was trying to lose them off her trail, or she might have spent a lot of time driving around randomly because she didn't want Desmond to guess the location of the assassin hideout. The first option sounds more plausible.
