In Which Video Game Is Every Named Character You Kill A Real Historical Figure?

Call of Duty
Assassin's Creed
Skyrim
Populous

Answer: Assassin’s Creed

The Assassin’s Creed franchise is an historical fiction action adventure video game, centered around the adventures of a secret society of assassins throughout history. While the games aren’t historically perfect in every detail and certain liberties must be taken to create the alternative plot line woven through history by the game, there are a surprising number of major and minor historical details that continue to delight and surprise fans of the series.

One particular detail that the developers at Ubisoft went out of their way to research and orchestrate is that every single named non-player character the assassin protagonist kills in the game is a real historical figure. If you’re sent to kill them and they have a specific name, they were a real person. Not only is the non-player character an actual person, but the location and time of death within the game matches the location and time of death of that individual in actual history, further weaving the plausibility of the story–that a secret guild of assassins is guiding the course of history.
