We all know that Altair will be playable, but not through genetic memory, but through memory storage units.

We also know that Desmond's genetic memory of altair stopped around when Altair was maybe 25 or 26.

Now, will the memories of altair be downloaded in Desmond, thus upgrading all the years that weren't recorded? Like from this point on, if Desmond bleeds bad again, will he see his entire life instead of till he dies?

Only as his own memories. So basically they'll be stored in the same way as the memories of Desmond himself that we'll be visiting are stored in his DNA.

Basically. But they'll not be stored in exactly the same way as Alta´r's genetic memory was. They're Desmond's observations of Ezio's observations of them after all.

That's what I'm so torn up about. Won't the memories in Desmond fuse without the outside memory being inserted into him through Ezio? Kind of like two halves to make up a single whole.

The Nexus was described as just using up all the memories so that Desmond would essentially be free of them. Altair's used up technically since Desmond played him up until his ancestor was conceived.

^This

It is already stored in his DNA.

I wonder what kind of experience it would be for a descendant of Desmond to view his memories of Ezio viewing Alta´r's memories.

Lol.

We're playing as Desmond who's playing as Ezio who's playing as Altiar who's living his life.

But then we'll be playing as Desmond's Son playing Desmond who's playing Ezio who's playing Altiar who hasn't played anyone. Ever.

I'll just stop now.

The way you said some of this made me have a funny thought. So, Desmond is basically a giant flash drive. For memories.
