Coming from an Assassin's Creed Veteran I'll say you have some choices. 1st Choice (Not caring for the Story): If you really don't care about much of the story (which I assume isn't the case because you made this question) you can easily jump into any game. Maybe if you jump into Brotherhood or Revelations without any previous knowledge you'll feel quite ...

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 ...

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 ...

Yes, the order matters, if you are interested in getting the most out of the plot. You can play the games in isolation, especially the last two, but if you have the option to play them all in order, you should try. If you are the kind of player that gets into the backstory and history and such, you'll enjoy them more played in order. At a high level, the ...

The first six games in the series(1) follow the genetic heritage of Desmond Miles, who is the protagonist in the overarching framing story which is set in 2012, which is narrated throughout these games through vignettes set in present times. In each game, the player takes up the role of another ancestor (Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad in Assassin's Creed, Ezio ...

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. ...

The robes aren't blue, they're the original white, just worn out and stained with the grime of a year's worth of travel. Even with regular care and cleaning, a set of white clothes exposed to road dust and rain will stain enough that it becomes grey before long. And that's what colour his robes are at the beginning of AC: Revelations: grey. The blue-ness ...

Hardcore Parkour is definitely a significant aspect of the AC series. It is definitely not as free as skyrim (where you get your mission goal, mission start, and do whatever you want on the way there, wherever, etc.), but at the same time, much less limited than many other games (not to name names). It has some activities that require you to follow a path ...

There's actually some story regarding Barcelona in the Assassin's Creed Universe: Inquisition After having been informed on the Spanish Inquisition imprisoning Assassins, Ezio Auditore decided to travel to Barcelona to save several Assassins that were being held prisoner by the Spanish Inquisition, having been labeled "heretics". Ezio visited the ...

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:

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 ...

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 ...

As somebody mentioned in a comment, and as I mentioned in a previous answer to a very similar question, it is currently unknown how the Auditore and Kenway lines connect. As you likely already know, both from your official diagram and from the comments, Desmond appears to be related to the Kenways and Auditores through his father William Miles. As such, we ...

"What is the greater symbolism and purpose of these death scenes?" Those death scenes are - in my opinion, as there seems to be no official explanation (as repeatedly lamented or critiqued in threads concerning this topic) - a condensation of the information collected (intentionally as well as intuitively) by the assassin, presented in a compressed and ...

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 ...

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 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 Altair'...

You can play in Barcelona in those AC games : AC2 : Discovery ; side-scroller game AC : Project Legacy ; facebook game (see the references at the bottom of the page)

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 ...

You didn't say whether you're avoiding spoilers or not, and the answer to this is full of more spoilers than you might think. Think carefully whether you actually want to know about the origin of the Order of Assassins before you continue! You can learn a lot from the Assassin's Creed wiki. Specifically, the origin of the creed:

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).

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 Animus is used to send Desmond into the memories of former assassins who have critical information vital to the survival of the assassin order. ...

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 ...

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 [...

In terms of the animus story, Assassin's Creed Odyssey chronologically is the first game, and as such it should be played first if you are going by the animus timeline order so it could be played: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Assassin's Creed Origins Assassin's Creed Assassin's Creed II Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Assassin's Creed Revelations Assassin's Creed ...

The game on PSP was Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines and it follows Altair after the events of AC 1. It does not continue Desmonds Story because, well, AC 2 does that. It starts off Desmonds story right after AC 1. PSVita was Assassin's Creed: Liberation which again, as nothing to do with Desmond and the Nintendo DS ones I believe they don't either. I wouldn'...
