Welcome to the Animus. February 1928. An expedition led by Sir Beldon Frye disappears somewhere in the Sinai Peninsula. A team of four and a dozen indigenous porters. They were looking for the Lost Pyramid of Nebka... Or more precisely "something" that should have been there. They were never seen again. Using the simulation reconstructed from their DNA memory, your team will put themselves in the shoes of the explorers. Find out what happened to the expedition. And more importantly: locate what they were looking for.

Using the Animus simulation program and our database of recorded genetic memories, we will send you back to Greece. Find the ship, if it exists ...
