Helix is a cloud-based software developed by Abstergo Entertainment.
A continuation of the Data Dump Scanner, a creation of Álvaro Gramática, the Helix software allowed for accounts of various Templars and Assassins throughout history, with propaganda-based narrations delivered by Abstergo in favor of the former, delivered to the public via a games console-style format at a cheap price. Using the headsets, Abstergo can also collect players' genetic data.
