    Okay, according to Wikipedia, the June edition of GameInformer said this about the sci-fi twist: [quote]the player is actually a far-future descendant of Altair who is looking back on his ancestor's exploits. The game is experienced through genetic memory, and the game actually becomes more defined and easier as this descendant remembers more about his ancestor. The 'computer offline' message may be a computer that is decoding these memories, and death in the memory is some kind of glitch in the system.[quote]

    It has already been confirmed that some part of the game will take place in the future.

    *read question*

    Now you've read the question, and hopefully chosen an answer, tell me how the game will begin.
    Will the future-Altair be going to the facility and plugging his brain into the Sonyâ"ž¢ BrainRaiderâ© 9000?
    Or will the past Altair get picked up by the Hashashin Training Corporationâ©?
    Or will you come up with something different?

    I say it'll begin in the past. Ubi is going to pretend like it's still a twist... when we've known about it for quite some time now.

    None Of The Aboveâ"ž¢.

    It will begin in the Futast...

    No really I think it will begin in the future...the future-Altair will be going to the facility and plugging his brain into the Sonyâ"ž¢ BrainRaiderâ© 9000...makes sense...

    I wish it just took place in the past, that would be way cooler. I think it will start in the future, something happens that makes you get ordered to remember(?) your past for some reason. If he just wants to see what his ancestor's did this future thing would be incredibly Lame. So the reason he dives into his memories is what I am wondering. Can he change stuff in his memories?

    I think it'll start as a "normal" game in the past, and after a while the player figures out it's just an emulation.

    ^ Same. If you have ever seen existenz i think it'll pan out like that. That movie was just plain wierd.

    It will start of in the sub plot of you playing as Altair, then you will discover the real plot as you get deeper.

    Perhaps someone trying to figure out an age old mystery surrounding the Templars and the Assassins.

    Yeah, I agree with Lhorkan

    Or wouldn't it be funky if Altair was plugged into this computer that simulated the past..or whatever, and then he couldn't remember anything before waking up in a seemingly 'differen't world Then as the game goes on and on, he somehow realises that "it's just an emulation." just like Lhorkan said [/funkythought]
