The story is about a bartender, Desmond Miles, who is kidnapped and placed in a machine, called an "Animus" (plural "Animi"), which reads genetic memories and puts them on a screen in 3D. Desmond is forced against his will to relive the memories of his ancestor Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad (first name pronounced Al-ti-ear) who lived in during the Third Crusade. The player must play as Altaïr as he attempts to regain his status as a Master Assassin in the Assassin Order by taking nine Templar lives. The Assassins being the mortal enemy of the Templars who are wanting to use mind control in order to have complete control of society. The Assassins want to preserve free will, and with the gift of freedom creating tools like swords, crossbows, knives, axes, tomahawk, bow and arrow, AK-47, hidden blades, kill the Templars who oppress them with the government mind control. The Templars later own Abstergo industries. While in modern day segments the player, as Desmond, must discover who Abstergo Industries (the company who kidnapped him) is, and why the Assassin's and Templars are fighting eachother. The story focuses on finding an object called a "Piece of Eden" which can control other people supernaturally.
