View Full Version : New to AC Any help would be appreciated

12-02-2010, 01:12 AM
I am brand new to AC and I haven't a clue as to what I'm doing. Even in the training, I just don't get it. Maybe it's just a little too complex for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the basics down, for example, no where in the online manual does it tell me I have to wait til' sequence 4 before I can recruit assassins, I spent hours trying to figure that out, only to finally come to the website and read I have to wait.

I've burned down a few towers, that's about it.

Any help???

go to the big black icons with ! inside it to get a mission. thats the story mode.

kill soldiers and running bag with a question mark, build houses etc assassinations are black with a target inside it.

Yeah dude, fastfast1969 has got it. Unless you played the previous ACs', jumping in now will be a little confusing.

Just to expand on what has been said.
<LI> To follow the storyline(mode) goto the exclamation mark thats in a black diamond (!)
<LI> To do missions such as Thief, Courtesan, Mercenary and Assassinations you have to goto the respective icon of the map. Holding the cursor over the icon will tell you which it is.
<LI>Things such as recruiting Assassins, War Machine missions, Getting better armour and weapons are obtained as you progress further in the game. You'll find most new items/missions will be explained to you when you have unlocked them.

So start hitting up the storyline, burning down as many Borgia Towers as you can and get sucked in to the most awesome game/series Ive ever played.

Cant get the dam thing outta my head, BRING ON AC3(4?)!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

yup, first u must follow the marks, and then do Thief, Mercenary missions etc.

And as u unlock the Missions, they will be explained to u. More weapons/armour are gained as the game progresses.

I think the guys above me pretty much summed it up.

Just to add, in the top left there's the assassin symbol with a red line around it. The more red line there is around the symbol the more Notorious you are. (Notoriety is gained killing civilians and pick pocketing). Notoriety is considered bad, and guards are more likely to notice you, so don't kill innocent people or pick pocket and you sound be fine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The best way to learn how to play the game is by playing, so good luck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
