The Virginian Plantation was a simulated location created and used by Abstergo Industries' entertainment branch in 2012, in order to influence the general public through the console stage of the Animus technology. It was later reused for the 2013 edition.
The area consisted of a typical sugar plantation, with a large estate at the center and various buildings, including pens, stables, a church and other residences, scattered around it. At the back of the estate lay its garden, which was primarily decorated with garden screes. Bales of cotton could be found all over the plantation, providing a handy hiding spot in a pinch.
With the implementation of new technology, simulated locations in the console stage were upgraded to have multiple aesthetic variations. Because of this, the Virginian Plantation could be utilized during the day, the night, or amidst rain.
