don't try wikipedia, it's full of bull****. Anyway, let me explain the assasin's creed story or whatever:

The overall story within Assassin's Creed is set in the near-future, where barkeeper Desmond Miles (the character controlled by the player) has been kidnapped by an unknown person prior to the start of the game, and is brought to Abstergo Industries, where researchers are working on the Animus project. The Animus is able to pull out memories from ancestors of the user, allowing the user to replay those memories as if he were there himself. Desmond was "chosen" for the project due to his relationship to his ancestor Altaïr, a member of the Assassins during the Third Crusade of the Holy Land; the researches express interest in understanding more of how the Assassins worked. Though initially Desmond's sub-conscious rejects the memories of Altaïr, he eventually learns to accept them and is able to proceed to follow Altaïr's actions through the Animus.

The memories of Altaïr that Desmond experiences start in AD 1191: Richard the Lionheart has just recaptured the port city of Acre from occupying Muslims. With a base of operations established, the Crusaders prepare to march south. Their true target is Jerusalem – which they intend to recapture for Christianity. However, Saladin, leader of the Islamic army, currently rules the city. Stinging from his army’s defeat at Acre, he will not allow Richard to humiliate him again. The Muslim forces are massing in the ruins of Arsuf, intending to ambush the Crusaders and prevent them from reaching Jerusalem. These war maneuvers have left the rest of the Holy Land wide open. While Richard and Saladin battle one another, the men left to govern in their stead have begun taking advantage of their newfound positions of power. Exploitation, manipulation, and provocation rule the day.

The first memory Desmond experiences is that of Altaïr failing to assassinate the Grand Master of The Templar Knights, Robert de Sable, and recover the order's treasure. Due to this, Altaïr is demoted to Uninitiated (the lowest rank in the Assassin Order). But Al Mualim, leader of the Assassins, offers him an opportunity to redeem himself. Altaïr must venture out into the Holy Land and assassinate Nine men said to be exacerbating and exploiting the hostilities created by the Third Crusade. In doing so, he will stabilize the region, allowing Mualim to usher in an age of peace.

Along the way, however, he will begin to discover that his targets are bound by more than just a shared interest in personal gain. They share membership in a secret society familiar to the Hashshashin. And they are not simply looking for profit. Their true goal and how they plan to achieve it leads to a modern-day conspiracy with secrets to be discovered during the course of the story. The members are eventually revealed to be templars. Their goal was to bring peace to the society, even through harsh means. Upon assassinating all of the people but Robert de Sable, a trap is laid out for Altaïr, and a woman is put as a decoy. It turns out to be a ploy by the Templars to sow discord between the Assassins and the Crusaders and Muslims. In doing so, Saladin and Richard The Lionheart would instead work together and fight the Assassins, and in the process, bringing peace. Altaïr finally catches up with Robert de Sable, and eventually, in a melee, wins him. It is then revealed to him by Robert de Sable that his master was also a member of the Templars, and he has now the sole power of the artifact. Altaïr travels back, only to find most of the town enslaved by the artifact. He then fights his way to the temple, and is aided by Malik. He eventually triumphs over his master. The map then reveals 12 locations of the artifacts, and then Desmond is pulled out from the Animus. He now sees cryptic writings on the walls and all over the floor.
Cryptic Messages on the wall.
Cryptic Messages on the wall.

The messages consist of 22:13, which refers to Revelations 22:13, which states, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."[8] Emperor Jiajing's name, various Chinese characters are also on the wall, as with the numericals, 13.0.0.0, are constantly shown on the the wall. This is a reference to the Mayan Calender, and the date in which it ends, December 21, 2012. On this day, it represents an extremely close conjunction of the winter solstice sun with the crossing point of Galactic Equator and the ecliptic, what the ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree. the winter solstice sun rarely conjuncts the Sacred Tree. This may mean it might effect the "energy weather" on earth, and could mean a change in the Earth.[9] It could also be related to the rush of ViDic to pry the information out of Desmond, as the date in which the game occurs is around September 2012.

Weaponry

There are four main types of weapons which Altaïr can use in Assassin’s Creed: a long sword, a short sword coupled with throwing knives on a belt, his fists, and his hidden blade, a concealed mechanical dagger that retracts to avoid notice (similar in concept to an OTF or "out-the-front" switchblade. All that is known is that the hidden blade uses a complex system of gears to somehow extend and retract. This hidden blade is attached to the underside of his left arm, which emerges from under his wrist. Altaïr is also missing his left hand ring finger which was severed as part of the initiation ceremony when he received his mechanical dagger. When the blade is extended and the hand is balled into a fist the blade extends through the space left by the removed ring finger. A trailer showing the dagger being "unsheathed" shows a complex clockwork mechanism. A crossbow was shown in the first trailer for Assassin's Creed, but has not been seen since, meaning that it was either used for cinematic effect or it has been cut from the game in favour of throwing daggers.

Jade Raymond has stated that the player will be able to unlock new abilities such as improved boots (better grip for climbing) and climbing gloves and customizations for Altaïr's weaponry. In the newest trailer, Altaïr also carries a knife on his back, in addition to his sword. The players can select the weapon they want to use by pressing the directional buttons, this allows quick switch capability during combat.
