This whole answer is chock full of spoilers about the AC universe and story. Hopefully you already knew this from the huge spoiler tag in the question. :) There are multiple Pieces of Eden in the Assassin's Creed universe. The Templars are searching for them in the first game, which is why they're curious about Desmond's memories of Altair - at the end ...

I've been able to work out that Button 0 and Button 1 are actually Left and Right Mouse (may be the other way around) These can be assigned at the Controls > Customize Controls screen by clicking the Attack Hand/Open hand options and double left/right clicking (as you need to left click to start the assigning process) Then, by using space for legs and E ...

I don't know about Florence or Venice, but because Brotherhood mostly takes place in Rome, an actual Renaissance scholar was consulted during the design of the city of Rome. Read more here The city itself was not meant to be extremely accurate as possible due to game constraints. Here is an excerpt from the article: The famous Roman Colosseum still ...

Yes. If you've played AC:B multiplayer that unlocks the Courtesan for use in Revelations multiplayer. That's it though.

As far as the past Assassins' story goes, you won't be lost. Ezio's story is largely unrelated to Connor's except for the main fact that they're both connected through Desmond. As far as the present-day Assassins' story goes, everything concerning Desmond and his party WILL fly over your head if you miss Brotherhood and Revelations, especially everything ...

Now that I've finally had a chance to sit down and play this - no. I have full completion on all the other games, and started this one essentially naked.

I had this same problem. The controls are painfully bad for PC. Eventually, I broke down and got a USB gamepad. Barring that, I would suggest using a mouse with programmable thumb buttons. Assigning these to ctrl, shift, and other "pinky keys" (depending on how many buttons you actually have) will make your life much easier. WASD is probably the most ...

According to Wikipedia: As showed in Assassin's Creed: Embers, Ezio retired from the Assassin Order and settled down in a Tuscan villa of Monteriggioni with Sofia and had two children, Flavia and Marcello. Years later, a mysterious Chinese woman appeared at his door requesting his help. The woman, Shao Jun, was a member of the Chinese Assassin Order and ...

Both of your questions are answered in later games (somewhere in the Ezio trilogy). However, each game definitely introduces more mysteries. I would say they solve/answer as many mysteries as they introduce. In 2 and onward, there's additional side non-Assassin-y things to do that provide more backstory and raise questions about the history of that universe. ...

Here is a family tree of Desmond's ancestry (click on the picture to zoom in). As you can see, the Auditore and Ibn-La'ahad sections of the tree are completely independent of one another (and their link is currently unknown). It is not known how directly the Kenway portion of the tree connects to the others, so until future games reveal this link we will ...

No, AC II does not require a Uplay account on PS3 (I have played the game without even knowing what Uplay was). It does support Uplay though, so if you change your mind later on you can link the game to it.

I was just in Florence and Venice a few weeks ago and I was surprised that I recognized a few landmarks from the games (the Ponte Vecchio, where AC2 opens, actually took me by surprise when I was on it). Looking at the in-game maps again now that I've spent time walking the two locations, I can say that the very rough locations of major landmarks are ...

Having had this question, I did some research which I thought I would share. In AC 1 you do see this scene Although there is some speculation, it is commonly held that:

TL;DR: While you can start the series from the second game, I strongly advise to start from AC I. -- I've only played the "main" titles of the game (AC I, AC II, AC II brotherhood, AC II revelation and AC III), so what I'm about to write here is only true for the main series of the game (Released for Xbox, PS and PC) and might not be true for the games on ...

Ezio retires from assassinating people and hunting for artifacts and so forth during the ending of Revelation: In his own words "No, [...] I have seen enough for one life." The ...

The animated movie Assassin's Creed: Embers is an animated short film project designed to expand the Assassin's Creed series. Set after Revelations, the film concludes the life of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, who retired from his life as an Assassin and lived with his wife Sofia Sartor in Tuscany's countryside. You can see the full movie on vimeo.com, or ...

I haven't read the new books, but the Ezio novels follow the plot of the games pretty much exactly, to the point that some of the dialogue from the games is repeated in the books. Even the fight during the tutorial mission is shown in "Renaissance". However, there is one major exception - Desmond and Abstergo are never mentioned. The stories are told as ...

Sofia's entry in the Animus in Revelations indicates that she was born in 1476. This would make her 17 years younger than Ezio. More specifically, Embers takes place in 1524. This makes Sofia 48 and Ezio 65 (give or take a few months, of course).

Well in Assassin's Creed Revelations they gave us a DLC called The Lost Archive The Lost Archive is a downloadable content addition for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, with gameplay similar to the Desmond's Journey sequences. It follows the life of Clay Kaczmarek, also known as Subject 16 of the Animus Project. In this DLC we also find that ...

It is revealed in Assassin's Creed 3, that those who came before are using a device that predicts (and possibly even renders) the future. In layman's terms, it means that: Desmond - is talking to a recording. Those who came before - are talking to the recording of a prediction. How Juno managed to... ...at the end of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, is ...

Well I had the same question has you, but after thinking about it I came to this conclusion: The Templars did not know about the incoming tragedy. So why do they not care at all that a world-changing event is about to destroy what they care about most - order? We can't say for sure that they didn't try, because the satellite was probably their idea ...

I think the series so far is one of the most intriguing series of games I have ever played. It adds more questions but never leaving you hanging with no answers for some. They give you excellent things to think about and they support all the lore with the comic books as well and the AC Initiates Website. I recommend you start playing the rest of the ...

And if the Kenways are on Desmonds fathers side, could he not have gone in the animus as well in Assassins Creed 3? At one point in AC 3 Desmond angrily shouts that at his father Right before his father So that suggests the Kenway's are on Desmond's fathers side (at least in Desmond's mind - his father neither confirms nor denies). As for why ...

According to this unofficial wiki: Jeanne was captured by English troops, accused of witchery, and burned at the stake on May 31 1431, at the age of 19. However, the Templar Order had orchestrated her execution in order to steal her Sword. An ancestor of Warren Vidic was present at the trial and execution. Since the Templars apparently ...

According to this Assassin's Creed unofficial Wiki, the different Pieces of Eden have different effects. Other Pieces included the Shroud, whose properties included the ability to heal the wounds of those it touched; the Ankh, capable of resurrecting the dead; and the Sword, a Piece that would pass through the hands of many great rulers through the ...

Main series for assassin's creed is... Assassin's Creed Assassin's Creed II Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Assassin's Creed Revelations Assassin's Creed III Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

No you wouldn't be lost. I skipped over one of the expansions (revelations I think) and didn't finish the other, I followed AC3 just fine. However, there were parts of AC3 (when you play as Desmond instead of Connor) that I found incredibly boring and unenjoyable; perhaps that's related to the fact that I was missing some storyline context from the ...

Taken from this wiki link: Her role and intentions (up to what you know now playing Brotherhood) inside Abstergo is pretty clear now. And even why she does that! So to answer your question, this is not a plot hole :) Also, there is another explanation to this, but it may result in a big big spoiler for you. DON'T READ THIS IF YOU DID NOT FINISH AC:BH

I would recommend skipping the first game entirely. The trio of AC2 games (AC2/Brotherhood/Revelations) are completely understandable without having played the first game - the character you play in AC2/B/R (Ezio) has nothing to do with the main character of AC (Altair) until Revelations, and even then there's little correlation between the events of ...

The default keyboard configuration is amazing! I love how it works and is one of the many amazing features that the Assassin's Creed series has brought to the gaming world. Most of the keys map to a certain part of the body, which kinda makes sense actually. Don't know why nobody thought of this earlier. WASD (Directional movement) --> Movement of your ...
