'''''[[http://acinitiates.com/ Assassin's Creed: Initiates]]''''' is a website set in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' ExpandedUniverse, delving much deeper into the background and history of the series than the main games while also providing ongoing updates of the Assassin-Templar conflict. The site is run InUniverse by a group of mysterious "Initiates", whose role in the long-running war appears to be simply spying on both sides and uploading data about the conflict. The "Desmond Files" covers the modern-day events of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'' to ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'', while the currently ongoing "Surveillance" picks up monitoring the conflict six months later and covers ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' and beyond. "Letters to the Dead" also presents entries from the codex of Eseosa, the grandson of Adéwalé who operated as the leader of the Assassin Brotherhood during the Haitian Revolution in the late 18th century.
