View Full Version : Where is Abstergo located?

Something I was pondering while pondering my fancomic (in Daring the Wind, Abstergo is in California)

I just know they are probably not in the Gulf of Mexico if you consider the e-mail that mentions "hurricane season is now year-round"

Some gut reaction makes me say west coast United States... but I have no reason for saying so.

Where do you think Abstergo is located?

Well, I've also been pondering where on earth Desmond's "farm" is.

I have a feeling that Abstergo is in Brazil somewhere. But I have grounding for that. It's just what always comes to mind.

The farm I'd expect to be somewhere in Nevada

I think the accents, all of them, not just Vidic and Lucy, are wrong for Sydney. But it's sure bright enough out those windows

On the mention of accents, the doctor has an interesting one...

It's a hybrid between British and American...
Makes him sound even more awesomely sinister. xD

How about in the Middle Ea-

New York sounds like a good possibility...
But what if it's in a whole new country?
It is the future, and we do know that many things have happened in those years, such as people leaving America and going to Mexico...
Civil war, maybe?
Or completely new government, or ruler, that wants to make it a whole new country?

I'm sure it's somewhere in America or Canadia.

The Farm definitely was somewhere remote and on the outskirts of society by the nature of Assassins to remain unnoticed. Could be Texas, Southern Canada, the Dakotas, although I can't help but think it's on an actual farm. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I'm thinking Abstergo will be in one of the larger cities of America. Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle, etc.

I can't help but think it is an actual farm either. Drew Desmond in a farmer's hat a while ago xD

I constantly forget to go to your spoiler-filled section, if that's the drawing you're talking about.

Completely slips my mind half the time. >_<

Kaxen6
05-24-2008, 01:15 AM
Yeah. It's in the spoiler section.

:/ maybe I should just merge them with the normal comic section since everyone's probably beaten the game by now.



When they mention the US being so awful that people are running to Mexico... I wonder how bad the US could possibly be to make people do that...

Despite being southern Californian, I'd probably run to Canada. They have Hui Lau Shan (Chinese dessert chain restaurant) in Canada...

The one about theaters being closed down got me thinking a lot about gaming, with how statistics proved that Halo 3's release date actually caused like a 17-million dollar loss to the big screens during that weekend, or some sum close to that amount. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

And the thing about Africa just amazed me, like it would be a really cool place for Desmond to go should we play as him in one of the two next games.

spazzoo1025
05-24-2008, 10:01 AM
i think it seems it's in Cali mainly because the windows are so bright lol you can barely see out of them

but also, keep in mind that Des is always wearing that hoodie...so maybe it's somewhere a bit cooler

I think the only pictures of Abstergo on the outside is in that one comic book and in the art book...

-_-' Kind of nondescript...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v469/luciferownsme/ACBook1.jpg

I have no idea how so much light gets into the windows because both images (I don't have my art book so no scans, atm)have such large overhangs above the windows...

05-24-2008, 12:19 PM
I was also thinking Arizona-ish for the farm, and Cali somewhere for Abstergo. It'd have to be a fairly developed area, due to all the buildings that you can see through the windows. I was also thinking it was in a much higher floor, helping to prevent escape, because I forgot about the comic image.

Kaxen6
05-24-2008, 12:54 PM
Yeah. Probably a high floor to present escape.

Unless there is something convenient to leap of faith into. @_@

But trucks are closed on all sides.

If I was coming to break Desmond out, I'd bring some bulletproof mattresses with me. So he can jump down and I don't get shot to death @_@

Of a bulletproof car... I was watching Cool Stuff on Science Channel and they were talking about a car made of ballistic steel and poly-carbon-something windows so it was all bullet-proof and you could electrify the door handles :'D But then how Desmond would come out without dying would be a problem...

So back to bullet proof mattress @_@

If that's Abstergo, then what Desmond could see through the windows in the game must've been a hologram (or similar illusion). I mean, where're the skyscrapers and the &uuml;ber-bright light?

Based on the skyscrapers of the hologram, I originally (back in November) got the feeling Abstergo was in Chicago or New York, but the bright light doesn't really fit those places.

That concept art could actually be any temperate place in the US. The building wouldn't look out of place around here, even.

Kaxen6
05-26-2008, 09:21 PM
@_@ I dunno. They very well could have changed their minds since the time that the concept art was made.

I remember someone saying the doc had an accent...which I fail to hear (may be because I'm half-English...eh.)
But I'd say London or somewhere in Russia. I know the 'accent' isn't right for Russia, but it seems good enough.
My next guess would be San Francisco...maybe Houston...
For all we know, it could be the Empire State Building.
And I wouldn't put it past them to put up a hologram to trick Des. They could be in the middle of a desert, and Desmond thinks they're in a city.

Kaxen6
05-27-2008, 06:34 PM
I didn't really notice an accent on Vidic.

@_@ I wonder how Des would escape if they are actually in a desert...

3 year bump or not, it's a good topic/thought.
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pa.../hurricane_brew.html (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/features/hurricane_brew.html) Judging from this, I would want to say it would be closest to Fiji.

Abstergo? Templar guys right? Well, they're based in Glasgow. It's 3 miles from the city center..take a right at the first Tesco and keep going up. There's a Chinese takeaway and a Marks & Spencer right next to an old Church. Once you reach there you can ask for directions...it's pretty close from there.

The building appears to be based somewhere in Italy. This is evidenced by Italian words appearing at both the warehouse hideout and in the basement car park, where an Italian sign states the clearance height for cars and a notice marking Vidic's parking spot.

Also, the laboratory is located in the "Research Wing" of the building, as confirmed by one of the guards.
http://assassinscreed.wikia.co.../Abstergo_laboratory (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Abstergo_laboratory)


BUT ON THE OTHER HAND... READ Point 4!

1. Abstergo Industries is in Italy
2. Abstergo Industries is in the Vatican. There are no skyscrappers in the vatican, but it can mabye an illusion of the piece of eden. But the numbershields from the cars of the abstero-guards got the sign of the vatican. Lucy and Desmond flew from the laboratory to Monteriggioni. Which means the lab is in Itaky
3. Abstergo Industries is in E.U.R. in rome, 8m south of the vatican. there are skyscrappers and in a distance to Monteriggioni reachable.
4. In opposition to point 1 to 3, in AC1 you can see a B-power outlet in Desmond's room, which are common e.g. in the USA, but not in Italy.
