Somebody should probably add something about it's availability on steam
Clean Up Edit
Tweaked and fleshed out the summary at the beginning as well as adding a Gameplay section. Changed the main article tag to a spoiler tag to keep the reader on a single page. Changed the Awards section so that it was consistent with the same on the AC2 page. Fixed some minor spelling and grammar as I went through it. Next step would be to go through and edit the plot section. Eventually. -- Reqυiem 04:15, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Plot section was actually in pretty good shape. Added some internal links and adjusted some of the content for better flow. -- Reqυiem 18:40, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Timeline of the game Edit
Can I add in the trivia that game spanned about two months? Since the game likely started after the Siege of Acre (July 1191) and ended around the Battle of Arsuf. (September 7, 1191) PassiveNeoluna 01:49, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- I hate to be the sceptic in this, but I just wonder where this knowledge is based on. I would just want to have a bigger confirmation, instead of hearing that it 'likely' was two months. What makes you think it started after the siege of Acre (although I have a good idea why), and what makes you think it ended around the battle of Arsuf. We see Altaïr going to Arsuf, but there's no sign of any battle yet. So if you could give me a bigger explanation, thanks. -- Altaïr 04:43, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- No sign of battle? There was hundreds of soldiers scattered in the terrain, with thousands more running at the background. That seems a good indicative that something bloody was going to happen sometime soon. -- D. Cello 02:57, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- You mean in Arsuf itself, or just all over the kingdom? Cause I must have missed it then, that there were thousands in the background. And I'm not denying that the battle would begin... It is likely, but I would like to hear some more information of this. Believe me, I would really like to establish in the article how long the timeline actually is, but I would like to hear some points that indicate how long it actually is. We can't just place it in the article imo, because we think things 'likely' happened. We need some harder proof than that, no? -- Altaïr 05:10, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- Okay Cedric, well it helps my point that in the game manual (p. 4), the months of study under July to September. Since those months match up with events in the real history I just assume this, my problem is that I don't know how long the battle lasted and if the date I typed is the start or end. Added to this, Bloodlines started one month after Al Mualim's death in Fall (which is at least mid-September) in the same year. PassiveNeoluna 03:27, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- Well it would definately take place after the siege of Acre, which ended about 12 July of 1191, so then the crusaders ruled over it. And Arsuf also fell to the crusaders on September 7. The battle lasted only one day. Robert De Sable led the battle. So since he's alive you would think that the battle is over when Altaïr arrives....-- Altaïr 05:46, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- So is this enough to confirm the timeline or no? PassiveNeoluna 03:52, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- It is for me. Sorry for acting difficult, I just needed some more information. But I would wait till D.Cello gives his opinion, before putting it into the article. -- Altaïr 05:57, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- No prob, I have to defend my point anyway so it's good of you to ask. PassiveNeoluna 04:02, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- Couldn't the timeline been longer actually since it's certainly after the battle of Arsuf, meaning it could have been after September, or am I wrong?-- Altaïr 06:03, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- Well from the game manual it just said July to September so it would just be around that time. PassiveNeoluna 04:14, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- I don't believe it's actually *after* the battle, but just before it. One, there are no injured soldiers whatsoever, something that would be present both on the winning and the losing side. Two, Altaïr battles dozens of Saracen and Crusaders alike, both groups which are present in numbers ranging from 6 to 10 individuals each party, with around 12 or 13 parties being found. Also, the structures like towers and walls are intact, some with arabs, some with europeans, so both sides are camped there. And last but not least, de Sable and Robert are talking and planning something with the soldiers around them, like a battle strategy or battlefield analysis usually takes place. Ah, you can also see thousands of soldiers running on the background of Arsuf. This screen illustrates the Arsuf level opening area, and as you progress you can see in the background first Crusaders, then Saracens, and a couple pockets of battle between both armies. That's all I remember now. So I think it happened sometime after the siege of Acre (since the Hospitalier presence is somewhat established and organized there already) and ended right before the Battle of Arsuf. -- D. Cello 04:18, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- Well what is the best span for the timeline then? Now I'm uncertain when the game exactly ended since I don't know when Altaïr returned to Maysaf. --PassiveNeoluna 04:49, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- Well think about this though. It's a game so there are a few historical inaccuracies. The fact that there are Saracens on the camp, just means that what Maria said was true. They were talking about a plan to unite the Saracens and The Templars against the Assassins, so that's the reason they are there. So if what Maria said was true, why would they strategize against the Saracens? But since you speak of wounded it can't have happened long after the Siege of Acre. And remember that only lasted a day. So are we to assume that after the battle, they rebuilt and tried to talk some alliance with them?-- Altaïr 14:15, April 12: 2010 (UTC)
- The answer is in your question, Al. If de Sable went to Arsuf to reunite Crusaders and Saracens against the assassins, he would have to do that *before* the battle began and one or both armies got decimated.
And about Acre, the presence of the hospitaliers has been established, since Garnier mentions "months of work and hundreds of subjects" that he healed, not torutred. The city lye with portions in ruins, and the outside of the walls still have bodies and catapults lying around. So the inside is being taken care of first (as the people live there) and the outside would be cleaned after the city's in order. That's of course a deduction taking timeline and town status in the first game. -- D. Cello 13:10, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
- We can't be general about the timeline's span? Since I was just hoping this to be placed in the trivia. Or I need to wait a while until this is more specificto be placed in the game's article? And yes the unparallel history does make the decision difficult to land on a overall consensus PassiveNeoluna 01:31, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
- Probably this won't be answered. I don't think they had a specific timeline in mind, when they made the game, since in ACII the events are more accurate when they happened. Nothing majorly important happens in ACI that requires historical accuracy in the timeline, so to the game it's irrelevant. For me it is okay to put a timeline of two months in the article. It is probably correct, considering the evidence you found - Altaïr 06:00, April 13: 2010 (UTC)
- Okay I'll add it to the article. This was a good discussion though, helped me review about the actual history. PassiveNeoluna 06:06, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
- Can you add it again? Cause I don't know what went wrong. I lastly edited it and it was gone in the trivia. - Altaïr 06:00, April 13: 2010 (UTC)
Add Solomon's Temple to the templateEdit
Can we add the Solomon's Temple article to the Assassin's Creed template? Every other location is listed, even Arsuf.
- Already answered you that on Solomon's talk page, Hewkii. Don't push it. And sign your posts. -- D. Cello 01:24, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
What's up with that? EditI loved Assassin's Creed 1 as much as the next guy, maybe even more. But I encountered a little problem. In the first Assassin's Creed, when they play the little trailer, Altair didn't have a fighting knife strapped to his back, he had a cross-bow. The only thing I didn't like is how in the game we get the fighting knife, but we don't get the cross-bow. And the only question I have is "Why?"
Because the developers decided it didn't fit in with the game.
We shuld add what AC orignaly was planed to be in the AC series article.Edit
like this article that showes a SC:C early version: http://splintercell.wikia.com/wiki/Tom_Clancy%27s_Splinter_Cell:_Conviction
Firstly remember to sign your posts. Personally I think that it would only be relevant as a mention in trivia, particulally as it was part of another series alltogether. Aegritudo (talk) 12:24, July 15, 2012 (UTC)
Stuck in Assassin BureauEdit
I am stuck in the Assassin's Bureau and can't get out! The Bureau leader gave me permission to leave, but I can't! I have left the Animus several times I have tried everything! If you have had the same problem how did you fix it? I am in Memory block 2 if it has anything to do with it.
Inclusion with AC: Revelations Edit
When I Pre-Ordered the Collector's Edition of Assassin's Creed: Revelations (for PS3), the game case was black and on the back it said that it contained both vouchers for AC II and AC: Brotherhood (for download), and also the full game of Assassin's Creed (1). I looked it up, and apparently I got my hands on a "Day One"-copy of Revelations, which included the first game. Could someone add this info to this page and Revelations page?
