There is no difficulty in this game to worry about. The collectibles are easy enough, as you can buy the maps for them. Most people reading this guide will have played other if not all Assassin Creed games. Even after playing and completing the other games, you will have a bit of a different experience here. First off, you will play for a few hours and not even technically "start" the main chunk of the game. This game demands 100% Sync and completion of everything on the DNA tracker. Otherwise, the game is very simple besides that. They have cut out a lot of things that worked extremely well and put in things that don't make much sense. They added naval missions and hunting which is new to the series.
Step 1: Playing Missions
By around Sequence 9 of 12, you might finally start "playing" the game. By this I mean you may start doing all of the little missions showing up on the maps. You might start buying new gear and getting more into the game. Yes, hours and hours later, you may actually start playing what you had been used to in previous games. Like the other games, it's always a good idea to get these little missions out of the way so that your main missions are easier. You can focus on trying to 100% sync everything you do, or focus on that later once you are farther.
Step 2: Clean the Map
You must complete everything now and go replay missions to 100% Sync them. This may take up just as much time as your normal playthrough. Press to look at what needs to be done in the DNA Tracker. You can also refer to your logbook in the menu. All of these tasks and extra missions will take much longer than the story did. You should do the underground tunnels early so that you can fast travel and really save some time. It's also worth it to start figuring out the money/convoy system so that you can buy the maps for feathers and other collectibles. This way, as you run doing the missions you can pick them up. There are a few missions that are exceptionally hard or luck based, so just keep at them or look through the various threads for some help.
Step 3: Multiplayer
There are only a handful of achievements here, but one of them is to get to level 20. Play and get used to the game and as you get better, you should gain more points. This is pretty straight forward. Use the achievement trading thread if you would like to help/get helped.
If you've played other Assassin Creed games, you will know that the game can take a lot of time and dedication. There is a lot of repetitive gameplay and the collectables are tedious. Feathers high up on trees, extremely hard to figure out where you can climb, and then you jump off on accident...yes. This game punishes those who seek to complete all achievements. If you have never played Assassin's Creed and this is your first one, you may feel overwhelmed at times. The missions seem to never stop. This game like the others will have DLC and even more achievements. You can buy them all or buy the Season Pass.
