The media has recently sensationalized a rare condition caused by prolonged exposure to the Animus. The condition, called the Bleeding Effect, occurs when a user’s DNA memory “bleeds” into that user’s real-time memory, causing the user to temporarily become confused and unable to distinguish past from present. Abstergo has contacted these media outlets in an attempt to have the story retracted, as the information was leaked from internal R&D documents before a full study could be done to release a full disclosure statement.
As already stated, the Bleeding Effect is a rare condition, appearing in less than 17% of users with prolonged exposure to the Animus. This number is not taking into effect users who have had shorter exposure, as the condition has not been seen at all in any of these users. Regardless of length of time in an Animus, each user is closely monitored for vital signs and neurological patterns while in-session to ensure physical and mental health.
Abstergo is committed to your health and safety. Our scientists are aware of the signs of the Bleeding Effect, and can safely end your Animus session if you show signs of being susceptible to it. Those who have been exposed to the condition can, and will, be treated immediately. Don’t let media dogs, hungry for whatever scraps of a story they can find, deter you from the wonderful experience of living through your ancestors’ memories!
