Ubisoft have kept pretty quiet about the storyline behind Assassin's Creed but it appears that Kristen Bell, who is doing voice work for the game, has spoiled the storyline a little bit.
During an IGN TV interview Bell stated that the storyline in the game is "actually really interesting to me, it's sort of based on the research that's sort of happening now, about the fact that your genes might be able to hold memory."
"And you could argue semantics and say it's instinct, but how does a baby bird know to eat a worm, as opposed to a cockroach, if its parents don't show it?" Yes, and how does a cat know how to get out of a bag?
"And it's about this science company trying to, Matrix-style, go into peoples brains and find out an ancestor who used to be an assassin, and sort of locate who that person is," she said of the game, for which she's doing voice work.
The cat could be out of the bag with this one. Assassin's Creed is due out for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in March, so we'll find out if the actress spilled a little bit too much information once the title is out.
