Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Spoiler: You Want Me To… Kill Lucy?!

Platform: XBOX 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC, Mac OS X

Most gamers probably assumed Lucy, the woman who helped you escape from Abstergo in the beginning of Assassin’s Creed 2, would wind up being the love interest for Desmond. That, unfortunately, wasn’t meant to be, as at the end of Brotherhood Desmond was commanded by Juno through the Apple to kill Lucy.

Apparently Desmond’s love interest is a woman who is supposed to accompany him through “the gate.” This woman has not been met yet (Assassin’s Creed 3 anyone?) Getting back to the Lucy death, it is arguably one of the biggest deaths for a main character before the final game of a franchise. Big enough to make one assume that maybe she’s not dead after all…
