Assassin's Creed se déroule dans un univers fictif dans lequel le monde a été créé par Ceux qui étaient là avant, des individus disposant d'une puissance technologique très avancée. À leur disparition, ils laissent sur Terre des artefacts (du nom de fragments d'Éden) permettant d'assurer le progrès de l'Humanité. Opposés par leurs idéaux, les Assassins et les Templiers ne considèrent pas de la même façon comment l'Homme doit évoluer, ainsi, les Assassins recherchent la liberté individuelle tandis que les Templiers veulent contrôler les populations et les guider.
