Someone please explain to me about the assassins creed storyline because i bought AC Revelations but i dont understand the bits before that like how Altair died and i dont get all the stuff about the Adam and Eve thing and the end of the world message to desmond? I thought this game was just about killing the templars as assassins but i guess not? Can somebody please explain or link me to somewhere i can read up on the full story up to revelations? Thanks.

Go on Wikipedia and search for each game and read the plot, also welcome :D

Don't go to Wikipedia, go to the AC Wiki. Look up the articles for the main games, maybe the timelines too and, if you are really interested, the articles on The Fall, Project Legacy and the French AC comics as well.

For those who haven't played through Revelations yet, don't read the rest of this post because there are spoilers!


Alta´r (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Alta%C3%AFr_Ibn-La%27Ahad) sealed himself inside that library, saying goodbye to his son Darim, in order to protect the Apple and ensure that only the proper person would find it. Since the last we saw of Alta´r alive was him sitting in that chair, and then imparting his memory into the key. At the time of his death, Alta´r was 92 years old so he could've simply died of old age, a heart attack, or some other common cause. I know some wonder if he died of starvation, but based on what I've read and seen in Revelations, that wasn't the case.

Since what you're asking about the First Civilization and the solar flare is quite an intricate story, rather than typing it out here are some links you might be interested in:

Assassin's Creed Revelations Story (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed:_Revelations)

First Civilization (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/First_Civilization)

Toba catastrophe (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Toba_catastrophe)

Juno (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Juno)

Minerva (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Minerva)

Jupiter (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Jupiter)

Hope that helps!

it would proberbly be best to play the games from start to finish ,

Revelations basicaly ties up and ends both Ezio's and Altairs story and contains all the answers you are seeking but its best to play 1,2 and brotherhood to get a clear understanding as to whats going on but to be quick and short its based on a secret war between to sects the Assassins and the Templar Order which has been raging for centuaries right up to present day , the Templars are seeking a powerful Artifact Known as the apple of eden which can bend peoples minds to the will of whoever controls it.

Ultimately the Templars are seeking power and governence through the sacrifice of peoples own free will , the Assassins are an ancient order who are dedicated destroying the Templars to save mankind from enslavement.

The story line is currently based around a man called Desmon Miles whos ancestors was High profile members of the order through which the templars are using a peice of Technology known as the animus to unlock desmonds genetic memories in order to seek out the location of the apple, the animus can only achieve this by desmond re living the memories and lives of his ancestors who was Altair in the first game and Ezio in the last 3 games.

its a race against time for the Assasins to once and for all put the templars out of their misery and save mankind and our own free speech.

But for a more detailed insight i would suggest playing the games :)

Hope this helps

If you played all the previous titles Revelations' storyline will be pretty obvious but you could also as suggested from above read up on it on wikipedia.

Here I did the search for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassins_creed
