After putting his life in jeopardy for murdering a pimp, Callum Lynch’s execution is faked by Abstergo Foundation. Allen Rikkin, the CEO of Abstergo, informs Callum that he is a descendant of the Assassin’s Creed, a group that has protected the Apple of Eden from the Templars for centuries. The Apple of Eden holds the code to free will, which the owner could use to rule over mankind. Callum is sent to Madrid, where researchers from Abstergo force him into a machine called the Animus which will allow them to relive memories from his ancestors’ past and find out where they left the Apple. During the experiment, Callum sympathizes with the Assassin’s Creed but feels indebted to Rikkin for saving him from execution. After Rikkin is able to secure the Apple of Eden, Callum must decide whether to join forces with the Assassin’s Creed to recapture the Apple and protect the world from Rikkin’s domination or to follow Rikkin’s movement.
