The Bastille was a prison in Paris, France. Among the inmates of the prison was the Marquis de Sade; due to his habit of inciting the crowds, de Sade was transferred from the Bastille shortly before the storming. In May of 1789, the Assassin Pierre Bellec met and started training Arno Dorian, after the latter had been accused of murdering François de la Serre and imprisoned. Two months later, the two escaped while the prison was under siege by revolutionaries.
Arno later infiltrated the Bastille, to recover the famous rope-ladder used by an escapee, Jean Henri Latude.
- The developers decided to keep the Bastille intact for the remainder of the game, despite it being demolished fairly early in the story.
