Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles is a video game released for the Nintendo DS, iOS, and Symbian. It is a prequel to the 2007 video game Assassin's Creed, developed by Gameloft and published by Ubisoft. It was released in the United States on February 5, 2008. It features two new cities, Tyre and Aleppo; and the three original cities, Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus; but does not include Masyaf. Unlike the original Assassin's Creed, the game is not told through the perspective of Desmond Miles, but rather the perspective of Altaïr Ibn La-Ahad, although the menu screens do take place in the Animus.
