assassin-s-creed-assassin-s-creed-le-filmWhat would Assassin’s Creed without the Animus? In a new video, the spectators were able to discover this very mysterious object.
Assassin’s Creed has an enormous mythology developed since the first opus released in 2007. For those who would never have had the opportunity to play one of the episodes of this videogame franchise, the technology allowing to “travel in time” Name the Animus. And if the quotation marks are used, it is because this object does not really allow to travel in time. Designed by Abstergo Industries, Animus makes it possible to exploit the genetic memory of an individual. And in the movie Assassin’s Creed, whose French poster with Michael Fassbender was unveiled, it is the character incarnated by the latter – Callum Lynch – that will be subject to this technology. The video below shows an overview.

Thanks to the Animus, Abstergo can thus exploit the memories of the ancestors of an individual. But while in video games, this technology resembles a futuristic-looking bed, the one in the film is totally different. Callum Lynch finds herself attached to a kind of metal arm with a hook at the back of the neck. An installation imagined uncomfortable for the man! It remains to be seen whether this artistic change will appeal to fans, while knowing that the studio Ubisoft originally licensed participated in the development of the movie Assassin’s Creed of which a sequel is already planned by the creators. You will understand, the Animus will allow Callum Lynch to explore the memory of his ancestor (under the constraint of Abstergo Industries), Aguilar de Nehra, having lived during the Spanish Inquisition. The film will be released on December 21st. What do you think of this technology?
