Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy is a Facebook game that was first made available on 30 September 2010 with the "Italian Wars" memory set.
Players are recruits for Abstergo Industries' Project Legacy, who relive the genetic memories of other individuals through a machine known as the DDS (Data Dump Scanner). Presumably, the DDS is similar to an Animus, but can allow a person to relive the memory of someone who is not their ancestor.
Currently, there are three memory sets available: "Italian Wars", "Rome" (released 15 November 2010) and "Holidays" (released 22 December 2010). The fourth memory set, Divine Science (released 4 July 2011) was made available outside of the DDS by Erudito - the DDS interface still says the pack is "coming soon".
An Abstergo dossier states that Project Legacy is currently on hold due to security concerns.

Welcome to the DDS Program. Please remain still while we synchronize your first assignment.
In 1509 CE, the Battle of Agnadello dealt a devastating blow to the Venetian army. You will relive this battle through the eyes and mind of one of its captains, Bartolomeo d'Alviano. Please report any anomalies you encounter.
Chapter 2 - Francesco Vecellio

You may feel mild discomfort during synchronization. This is normal. It is important to maintain your concentration.
History places Niccolò di Pitigliano's death in Lonigo, Italy in the year 1510 CE. Our data supports this fact. But the circumstances of his death require further investigation. Please take notes and report your findings.
Chapter 3 - Mario Auditore
- Main article: Chapter 3 - Mario Auditore
We are now synchronizing the DDS. For your safety, please report any nosebleeds, vertigo, nausea, or hallucinations.
Land-hungry Florence sought possession of the walled city of Monteriggioni, but it held strong for years under the guidance of the Auditore family. You will dissect the memories of Mario Auditore, who struggled to keep his city safe through the latter half of the 15th century.
Chapter 4 - Perotto Calderon
- Main article: Chapter 4 - Perotto Calderon
While we prepare to synchronize, please listen to the following questions. Be sure to report any difficulties you have answering. What is your name? Where do you live? What year is it?
We have a unique window into the lives and secrets of the infamous Borgia family. The DDS has recovered the memories of one of their trusted couriers, Perotto Calderon. Your task is to find out exactly what he discovered.
Chapter 1 - Fiora Cavazza
- Main article: Chapter 1 - Fiora Cavazza
Please wait a moment while we synchronize the DDS. You may find yourself daydreaming more often and sleeping less. This is a normal side effect of the program.
Many of Rome's biggest names spent their leisure time indulging in its many brothels. They were ideal information hubs for those eager to scale the social ladder. Fiora Cavazza was one such courtesan. Investigate her contacts; find out who she knew, and what she did with that knowledge.
Chapter 2 - Giovanni Borgia
- Main article: Chapter 2 - Giovanni Borgia
The DDS is going to try to synchronize you with the memories of a child. This may be confusing for you at first, as you will lose your ability to convey complex thought, but your mind should quickly adapt.
The truth behind the real parents of Giovanni Borgia, the "Child of Rome," has long baffled historians. But even more perplexing is Giovanni's insignificant life that followed. How does one stand right in the center of the hurricane and remain untouched? Your task is to learn what history has hidden from us.
Chapter 3 - Francesco Vecellio
- Main article: Chapter 3 - Francesco Vecellio
Now synching the DDS system. We're going to take a moment to test your emotional range. Please focus on a fond memory. Good. Now focus on a painful memory. Perfect.
Just prior to the death of Pope Alexander VI, Cesare Borgia began to lose his grip on Rome. Though you won't find any mention of it in the history books, we suspect a powerful underground movement worked to overthrow the corrupt dynasty. See what you can learn.
Chapter 4 - Giovanni Borgia

Preparing to synchronize. Note that we are experiencing a small system glitch that may cause a subtle ringing in your ears. It should pass as you enter the memory.
The new world was plundered in the 15th Century. Explorers became conquerors. La Noche Triste, or the Night of Sorrows, was a bloody uprising between the Aztecs and the Spanish conquistadors. Hernán Cortés himself was driven from Tenochtitlan. Firsthand reports of the massacre present opposing perspectives. Find the truth.
Unlike other memory sets, the memories within a "Holidays" chapter feature different protagonists, though all are centered around events during a single day across history (i.e., Christmas Day).

The Renaissance. As early as 14th Century, Italian scholars began to re-examine ancient classical lore, triggering revitalization of knowledge throughout out Europe. You will explore the memories on one of the Paracelsus's assistants, Maria Amiel. Please report your findings.
Chapter 2 - Kyros of Zarax
- Main article: Chapter 2 - Kyros of Zarax
The DDS is attempting to synchronize millennia old memories. Because the memories you'll explore are ancient, you may feel disoriented, even confused. You may also find it hard to discern reality from fiction. This is normal, please remain calm.
Following the events we unlocked in the last sequence, you will now explore the origins of the Hermeticists tradition. You will follow the exploits of the Pythagoras of Samos, the Greek mathematician and scholar. You are one of his protégés, Kyros of Zarax.
Chapter 3 - Elizabeth Jane Weston

We're attempting to synchronize the DDS system. This will only take a moment. We are almost there. The DDS is now in sync. Thank you for your patience. We hope you'll enjoy your experience.

- Main article: Chapter 4 - Frater V.O.V.
The DDS will synchronize with the memories of an aged man. You may feel you have less energy, poor hearing and eye sight and even experience wobbly legs. This is normal, if you feel pain in your left arm however, please stop and consult your physician.

As of 8 December 2010, Uplay actions and rewards became available for Project Legacy.
The Uplay connectivity of Project Legacy would presumably allow players to avail of more of the Uplay rewards in Brotherhood, as Brotherhood has a greater number of rewards than it has in-game Units to be earned. However, there are an equal amount of points for rewards and actions for Project Legacy; though the points can still be spent on rewards in Brotherhood instead, if one so chooses.

As of June 2011, Ubisoft has stated that the Divine Science memory set and the DDS 2.0 will be released in the forthcoming weeks. It was suspected this would be released alongside Assassin's Creed: Revelations as the Rome set was alongside Brotherhood. However, as of May 2012, it still has not been released. The improvements of the new system are:
- No longer needing to click through 500+ SP when reassigning.
- Crafting now allows for multiple concurrent crafts of the same item.
- Achievements should now unlock instantly.
- "Collect All" now collects income from all cross-Pack Buildings.
- Functional cross pack Go To Navigation.
- Inclusion of a Mastery Level System.
This may explain why the holiday pack did not come out in 2011.
