Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – Flamethrowers: Did they really exist back then?
The technology of Assassin’s Creed

Video games are known to play fast and loose with historical accuracy.
Games set in a historic context from Wolfenstein 3D‘s Robot Hitler to Rome Total War‘s attempted recreations of historic battlefields, show that though the past can make excellent playgrounds, recreating them with a high degree of accuracy is very difficult.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise is one of those series that can almost trick the gamer into learning about the past through its entertaining medium.
The fact that the games are actually much more accurate than most films that use the backdrop of history means they manage to mostly offset their historical and scientific deficiencies.
