In the 21st century, Callum was sentenced to death, which is essentially just a staging set up by Abstergo. The hero manages to find out that the company is a cover for the remaining Templars. Together with Sophia Raileen, a female scientist, Callum goes to the past to find the Apple of Eden, eradicate evil and correct the mistakes of his ancestors.
