Gameplay

Bloodlines is an action-adventure game, in which the player primarily assumes the role of Altair as experienced by Desmond similar to that of the original Assassin's Creed. Unlike the previous Assassin's Creed spin-off, Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles, for the Nintendo DS, the game features a gameplay system similar to the original game where players are able to traverse an open world with nonlinear gameplay allowing players to free-roam the island at will. The character can also keep out of sight of enemies and blend into the environment as well as enter hiding spots such as haystacks similar to the first game.[3]

Plot

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines takes place months after the events of the original Assassin's Creed. The game is largely set on the island of Cyprus in two of its cities, Limassol and Kyrenia where players would again take on the role of Altaïr, the original ancestral character in Assassin's Creed. Altaïr has travelled to Cyprus from the Holy Land (the setting of the first game) in order to find out why the Templars are gathering there, and to assassinate the last of them.[3] Bloodlines includes more face time with Maria, the female Templar that was spared by Altaïr in Assassin's Creed. The antagonist is Armand Bouchart, who has become the Grand Master of the Templar Order. He seeks the "Apple of Eden", which allows the user to control the minds of people and make them carry out the bidding of whoever is using the Apple. Altaïr has to stop him (and other notable Templar leaders, like enormous Moloch "the Bull") from using the Templar Archive located on the island to further their goals.

Connectivity

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines features exclusive connectivity with the PlayStation 3's version of Assassin's Creed II. It was revealed at the E3 2009 that by connecting a PSP to the PlayStation 3, six exclusive and unique weapons can be unlocked on Assassin's Creed II as well as on Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines.
