The game starts off with Desmond's father talking about the impeding doom that is lurking around the corner and how Desmond is the key to save ourselves.
After the scene ends, you take control of Desmond who along with his friends just arrives at the entrace of a large cave. Go inside the cave and at each point, Desmond interacts with the surroundings with the Apple in his hand and opens a path further into the cave. After a bit of walking, you come to the main chamber inside the cave which has elaborate designs and then it starts again...
You're back in the Animus because of a sudden bleeding effect. Thru this area, you will just keep moving forward and learn the controls to perform different kinds of maneuvers and air assassinations.
Memory 02 - A Deadly Performance
As you move ahead, you take control of one of your ancestors again and because of the synchronization, the world starts to build and you come to a door. Go thru it to continue to the next mission. You receive a mail at this point in the real world - you can leave the animus anytime now to go back.
Continue into the theater and sit in the designated seat. After talking for a while, you need to switch on your eagle vision. Switch it on and look at the top right corner of the theater where you golden target awaits. After you spot him, move to your left and use the ladder and then the ledges to get to the top left corner of the theater. Climb into the balcony and make your way to the right side. You come across a door which is locked - you need to pick it. First rotate the mouse to get the correct position and the move it up and down to open the lock and continue inside. Then you come to your target, assassinate him and follow all the green waypoints in your path to get out of the theater - simple.
Memory 03 - Journey to the New World
Soon, you'll find yourself embarking on a journey to colonial America and this is your first experience on the sea and in a ship. After you come to... go up to the docks - there are two mini-games you can play in this area too. After you go up, you will receive basic combat instructions so watch and repeat carefully because this will carry on to the rest of the game, after the fight, you speak with the Captain of the ship who voices his concern and then you can go back to your cabin. Go back topside and investigate the falling barrels, later that day you will be attacked by an enemy ship and then your ship is taken into the storm to lose the enemy ship. After that, you are instructed to go back to your chambers and then you get to know who was throwing the barrels into the water and a small fight ensues - your first fight with a sword too and after you kill your opponent you need to run around back on the top, securing the ropes and releasing the sails of the ship. You will come out of the storm and this day ends.
Go back to the captain at the bow and then climb the mast to get a look at the new world...
You'll meet Charles Lee once you come off the boat. Now follow him to the first location. You can do a lot here but for now, just move on with the mission. Once you come to the waypoint you meet Benjamin Franklin who in a few years is going to declare independence but for now, he's just a old guy searching for his almanac pages.
This is the first collectible mission in the game and will continue for the rest of the game. To the right here is a person who has a mail icon over his head. This is yoru first side-mission where you need to deliver four letters to the people on the map - it's done fairly easily. After that, once you decide to move on, go into the General Stores and buy yourself a Sword and a Gun - the two essentials. Now go back to Lee and ride on the horseback to the Green Dragon Tavern.
Memory 2: A Favor & Johnson's Errand
This is a two part memory with the second part holding more prominence. Head into the tavern and follow Lee upstairs to meet William Johnson. You can talk to Johnson again for a conversation and then leave the Tavern.
You'll come to the outskirts of a fort -
Kill 10 mercenaries with firearms
Do not let Hickey or Lee lose more than half their health
Once you speak to Hickey, you'll see a guard on top of the hill ahead. Kill him with your pistol and climb up to where he was. Take his rifle and move ahead. You'll will see that Lee and Hickey come up to the entrance which is below you and talk to the guards. To get full sync you need to kill 10 enemies with firearms. Unfortunately, this can be a bit difficult because of the high reload times of these ancient weapons. So, fire with the Musket first, then drop it and fire with your pistol and this should allow you to kill two within a short span of time. Move ahead on top of the hill and you come to more enemies. Kill them and move ahead. You'll see a few run in behind some gates.
You need to shoot the explosive barrels cart which is to the left of the gate. Shoot it to make the gate explode and then go in. Kill the mercenaries and retrieve the contents of the stolen chest -
From this point on, you can loot bodies of dead enemies. Now, you need to follow Hickey and Lee outside while Lee carries the chest. You need to defend them both from the enemies who keep coming in your path, you will be walking for a while so brace yourself. You need to reach a carriage which takes you out of this blasted place.
Memory 3: Next on the List & The Surgeon
First, talk to Lee in the tavern and you can start the quest immediately.
Eavesdrop on a moving group of guards
Do not fail a single eavesdrop
Remain undetected during the whole warehouse infiltration
Your first objective is to Eavesdrop on the neighbors. This mission acts as a tutorial for the rest of the eavesdrop mission in the game so follow everything in it carefully. The most important thing you need to know is how to blend in with the atmosphere or disappear thanks to a haystack or something similar. You will also need to sync from the top of a sync point so go up and do it.
Then head to the next eaves drop location. This time, you'll be hearing the chatters of some guards. They will get suspicious if you stare at them too long so just move a bit ahead and blend in with the two other citizens here. After you finish your eavesdrops, meet Lee and head to the warehouse. To get full sync you need to enter the house undetected. First, go from the right side of the red square, then wait for the single patrolling guard to go by and move ahead to the left-
You'll find a guard here, stand on the corner and whistle which will make him come towards you, you can kill him when your weapon icon on the bottom right of the screen becomes white - just when he gets close enough. After that, everything should be simple. Go to the entrance and then to one of the guards to pickpocket him and finally go back to the door and get inside to come to the Surgeon. Assassinate the target ahead of you and release the Surgeon. You can meet him back at the Tavern whenever you want to meet him.
Memory 4: The Soldier
Limit detection time - 15 seconds
Perform a Kill Streak of three
Prevent Snitches from calling reinforcements
Speak to your buddies to start this mission and you'll come to a different place with Lee leaning on a wall just ahead of you -
Speak to him to start the mission and you'll walk to John Pitcairn and Edward Braddock. After the cutscene, you will have to tail Braddock's patrol carefully.
The best way to trail them is to run behind a wall which they just passed and stay hidden behind the corner as you can see in the image above. Once you need to start fighting, an optional objective is to kill all of the snitches first. They are marked with a red hexagon. Kill them first to avoid them from calling reinforcements and then after killing everyone in the unit, talk to Braddock.
Memory 5: Infiltrating Southgate
Find and kill the General
Perform three stealth assassinations from a corner spot
Avoid firing line damage
Talk to Lee again to begin this mission. You need to get a few guard uniforms and for that, you are going to kill a few guards. Once you are on the rooftops, grab the Musket to the right of Lee and shoot the redcoats below. You can continue to kill them from here or just jump into the battle yourself. After you kill everyone, you will have had enough uniforms to get on with the plan.
You'll continue the mission while riding a wagon. Your allies will be scattered ahead of you and you need to give them orders to kill anyone who is approaching you before you are detected. So when you see a couple of guards walking towards you wagon, just give the signal to take them out. Soon, you'll come to the fort where more of the natives are being held captive.
Inside the fort, head straight for the two men below the archway and then walk along the wall to the right, past some horses, and into a hay cart where you can assassinate the general who is marked with a red hexagon. The targets you need to kill are all marked on the map so you will not have any trouble finding them but there's still the optional objective of killing 3 enemies from a corner spot. When you see an enemy patrolling an area, just hide behind a corner which may be a stack of boxes or anything and hit E to whistle, this will grab their attention and they will come walking towards you, when you see your blade icon on the bottom right turn white from grey (when the enemy is close enough) just kill him and that's a stealth corner take down.
For the final optional, you need to avoid a line of fire, you can do so by simply hitting SPACE when near an enemy as you are about to be shot by a group of soldiers ahead of you. Immediately after you free all the prisoners, you get into an all out battle, hope you learned to counter properly by now...
Enter the tavern and talk to Lee. Come back outside and head onto the gate of Frontier, which are at the other end of the city so open your map and Fast Travel there if you can or else, grab a horse and ride your way to the Frontier entrance. Once you pass the gate, you will enter Frontier lands. This is where most of the game's hunting happens but more on that later. For now, if you are on your horse then travel to the marked location or hold R to bring up the weapons menu and select your Horse Whistle from the right menu and use it to call your horse and ride.
After talking to Lee, follow him to the location of the woman. You'll then need to run behind the woman on foot while she runs on top of the trees. Soon, you'll come to a small camp which was ravated by wolves and the wolves attack you. When wil beasts attack you, you will enter quick time and some of the buttons will be shown on the screen which you need to press to successfully dodge and kill the animal. The woman is now resting on top of a tree ahead to the left, use your eagle vision if you cannot spot her. Follow her and speak with her. Then she takes you to a Tavern close by. Go inside and blend in with the two guys near the window to listen to the eaves drops and then head to the exit. A fight begins, you need to throw two soldiers onto the tables. Just counter them first and hold E and a direction button to throw them - this should take care of the objective.
Memory 2: Execution is Everything
Do not kill any guards
Sabotage two cannons
Talk to Ziio and head to the fort. Here, you need to move undetected so first, run into the cart which is standing outside the gate -
Once the cart stops, get out of it and head to the left to where you see an eaves drop circle. Do not enter the circle yet. First, you need to take out the guard who is patrolling here. Just wait for him in the low leaves and take him out once he passes you. You will not kill him - Haytham just knocks them unconscious so you need not worry about the optional objective. Once you take him out. Head up on the stairs to the left and hug the left wall of the fort as you approach another guard and take him out too. You need to lift their bodies and throw them in the haystacks so that the other guards are not alerted. Once you did this, move further ahead to see another guard strolling in a watch tower ahead of you. Stay in the high grass and watch his movements. He usually walks to the right and comes back and stands still for a bit facing his back towards you so just run up to him when you see this and take him down.
You will also need to take you the two cannons fro full sync. The first is just to the right of the watch place here. After sabotaging it, go into th eavesdrop circle and listen to the soldiers. Once their conversation is finished, go to the second cannon and take it down. Then finally head into the marked location which is a tent and pick up the map. Now, you need to get out of this place without triggering alert, the best way to do this - if you have the patience to walk back is to go to the right of the first cannon and jump off from there into the water below -
Then continue to swim right and onto the land and head back to Ziio.
Memory 3: The Braddock Expedition
Kill two soldiers without triggering open conflict
Destroy three powder carts
After spending five months in the tavern, you will finally meet Ziio again who tells you that it's time. After you speak to her, you will come to a small camp with guards in front of you. You need to kill two of them without alerting the rest to get the optional objective. It's simple enough, first there's a marked guy who circles the camp. go to the left from where you start and into the large bushes so you can get cover. Move to this area if possible -
When you see the guard pass you, just whistle and he will come towards the bushes. Take him out and then move close to another guard and repeat the same. After you kill two, you can openly fight the rest of them. After you take out all of the enemies here, you'll have uniforms again. Ride on the horseback to Braddock's camp. You'll trigger a cutscene and then you'll need to follow him. The optional objective here is to destroy three Kegs as you move past them, the first is shown as a tutorial and you can then take out the rest as you pass them, just be careful and time the shots properly else you may hit a guard - this is a tough optional objective and requires a bit of luck as well.
Once Braddock stops, go near him and see what happens. Pursue him on foot and take him out to end the sequence, you'll be taken to the cave but see what happens....
Then you'll see yourself just outside the Tavern, go in for a plot twist -
You'll be automatically taken out of the animus after the last sequence. Talk to everyone about anything you can and check out your mails. There's not much to do in the real world just yet so it's best to go back into the Animus for now.
As you start the sequence, Ziio gives you a back drop on what happened between Haytham and her and also tells you about her fears...
Memory 1: Hide and Seek
Find all the children without making a mistake
Find all the children within four minutes
One great thing about this game is how you are taken thru the life of Ratonhnhaké:ton unlike the previous games where you are just thrust into the adult leads. First, follow the other kids into the forest where they start a game of hide and seek - you'll get the short straw and need to find the others. You will need to start by searching for clues and the first clue is just nearby -
As you analyze each clue, the green circles will shrink and finally after three clues for each circle, you will know the exact location of your friends. Use your eagle vision to seek out the location of all the clues easily, you can also find the clues by following the direction in which the footsteps of the present clue lead. One of them is inside a leaf stack, the second in just sitting at the foot of the mountain nearby and two of them are together in another haystack.
To get the optional objectives done, you should not make a mistake - you should find all three clues ad pin point the location of your friends. If you just walk into a haystack and there's no one there then you'll fail the objective. You may also need a lot more time than the 4 mins so what you can do is remember where your friends are and restart at the last checkpoint thru the menu and find them again without analyzing the clues which gives you a lot of time. Just do this for two of your friends because once you find out the location of the third and go there, the checkpoint will be overwritten and you will not be able to get the optional objective done.
Once you are done finding, it's your turn to hide, just go into any of the leaf stacks and hide in there - it does not matter where you go. After a while, see what happens.
Now, you will need to run to your village and then to your house. Once you reach your house, go to the right behind some rocks and you will see a path between the fire which leads to a wall which collapses. Go in from there and watch the cutscene.
Memory 2: Feathers and Trees
Do not touch the ground or water
Find three more feathers
A long time has passed and Connor has grown up. You will need to find some feathers for a meet later in the village. To get the optional mission done, just walk on the trees and the rocks which are above the water do not count as ground. After a while, your friend falls into the water, just help him back up and go to the nest. Jump onto the mountain and grab the feather.
Head back on the trees where you will be able to see two more feathers marked on the map. Get them to complete this mission.
Memory 3: Hunting Lessons
Hunt and skin three different types of animals
Combine bait and a snare to catch an animal
Air assasinate two animals
The first part of the mission is a little tutorial on the hunting aspect of the game. Hunting in Assassins Creed III is bot interesting and profitable. Especially if you are hunting the wilder animals like the cougars and bears - even Elks pose a threat. You need to skin them after you kill them to gain everything from their bodies and you can sell the different stuff to a merchant later.
Just follow the basic instructions on the screen to learn how to hunt the animals. After that, you need to hunt on your own. To complete all the optional objectives, you need a bit of time. First and foremost - do not act like a maniac and run behind animals - that's what I did. Just have a lot of patience. To complete the snare and bait objective. Look for a clue where you get a prompt that a rabbit ate some leaves or something like that and snare the area and throw some bait in it and go away for a while. You can snare additional areas in the ground just so you make sure you get at least a fox and a rabbit in the snares. You can take down deer on your own.
Climb onto the trees above you and run around till you find deer. Stand on top of them and when your weapon to the bottom right turns white, perform an air assassination and skin it. Do this twice and you will complete all three optional objectives. Also, you will need to skill three different types of animals before you skin to total of five or you will fail the optional objective. After you are done here, head to the waypoint and into the village.
Memory 4: Something to Remember
Make no more than two collisions
Head into the village and meet the Clan Mother. She gives you an orb and you turn into an.....
Anyway, just use the movement controls to move yourself around all the trees and cliffs and make sure you don't hit anything to complete the optional - this is a great addition to the game.
This sequence kicks off most of the side quests in the game. The New England Hunting Society and several others like Courier Missions, Liberating Forts etc.
Memory 1: A Boorish Man
Limit health loss to 50%
Get to the marked location however you can (fast travel and walk or ride). The person you intend to meet does not let you inside so you need to go and sleep in his stables for this. This happens once again when you are suddenly attacked by some guards. Kill all of them and the man finally talk to you.
Memory 2: Achilles Errand & A Trip to Boston
Just go out and talk to Achilles to ride to Boston. Follow Achilles as he converses with you and you come to the General Stores. Now you can continue the stuff you were doing earlier with Haytham like collect Almanac Pages and all of that.
A Trip to Boston
Escape within 80 seconds
Speak to the owner of the General Goods store to get your stuff and he mentions that he does not have all of them. Go back to Achilles and talk to him and watch the cutscene. Tail Haytham's accomplice thru the alley - you can also tail him from the rooftops. Beware that he climbs onto a ladder to get on top of a building at the end of the alley, when he gets up, make sure you are hiding behind one of the chimneys or something - just stay out of his line of sight.
As soon as he takes his stance, pounce on him and kill him. After that, you will need to escape the area as soon as possible. Just run away till you lose the heat.
Memory 3: Boston's Most Wanted & Lying Low
Do not raise your Notoriety to level 3
Boston's Most Wanted
Your notoriety will be at 3 after that last mission so you need to be careful and try not to get into any fights. If you are being tracked then run away from that enemy or just jump into a haystack. The marker leads you to a man called Sam Adams. He takes you around town and tells you what you need to do to decrease your Notoriety.
First you need to take out the wanted posters around. Since you are already at level 3 of Notoriety you can just run to the locations, kill everyone if you want to and then you can take out the posters. Or if you want to do it the stealthy way, just silent kill the nearest guards who are watching over the posters and then tear them off. Adams then takes you to the Town Crier and this is the second way to decrease you Notoriety. Now, you need to make your way to the print shop. The enemies will still pursue you and the place you need to go is behind an alley guarded by redcoats on all sides. If you are careful, then you can jump on top of the buildings and then into the alley. Silent kill the guards near the entrance and then your friend comes in. If you are not too careful then you'll get into a fight and end up with a few dozen dead bodies all around you -
Get into the tunnel and follow the rats outside.Inside the tunnels, head east and then take the first available left twice and then take a right at the three way intersection. Make sure to light the lamps as you go through so that you know which way you came in from and always follow the rats. Now, you will come out to the print shop. Take out any enemies who might be there and then you'll find out the last method to decrease your Notoriety. Talk to the Harbormaster now and choose Davenport Homestead.
Memory 4: The Lost Son's Return & River Rescue
Just get back to the Manor and talk to Achilles, this triggers the next mission - a rescue.
Do not touch the water while rescuing Terry
This is simple, yet difficult if you want to hit the Optional Objective. To get the optional, you will need to run ahead on ground and you will see several fallen trees acting as a bridge into the water and you can wait here till the log comes and then rescue Terry. If the log passes you then you ought to start the checkpoint to be able to get the optional done. You can now do the Homestead missions too.
Memory 5: Training Begins & The Hard Way
This training just involves running some numbers and working with merchants - I really thought it would be different. Anyway, just learn how to create a convoy and how to trade with merchants and you are done here, the next mission though is very very important and fun.
The Hard Way
Sustain no damage before you reach Martha's Vineyard
Use the swivel gun to destroy two ships
Successfully brace during an attack on three occassions
Talk to Faulkner and reach the marker. After the cutscene, head to the mast and take control -
You can do the first two optionals easily. The third one is a bit tricky. Just head to the harbor first and make sure you do not sail too fast or the sudden winds will give you a lot of trouble. Watch the cutscene next and come back to the helm. Now go ahead and practice with the cannons and Swivel guns. The cannons tutorial is very important so pay attention. As you move out to the sea, you will need to fight several small frigates and a large naval ship. The frigates can be taken out with the swivel gun but the ship is a bit more sturdy and you will need to maneuver around it tactfully and careful. When you see the prompt on the screen to duck, hit Space to duck. You need to do this thrice to be able to complete the third objective. Make sure you are using the cannon fire properly. After you destroy the ship, you will come back to the Manor.
Before you start off the next sequence of memories, there's something very important you need to attend to in the real world so you are pulled out of the Animus by your friends. It seems that they have located a battery to the temple. First, from where you are dropped off, you need to make a climb to the topmost part of the tower. It's just climbing but some of the ledges may be difficult to notice so watch around you carefully. Once you are at the peak on top of the construction crane, you will be overlooking a helipad which is on a nearby building ahead of you.
Just open the shoot as soon as you jump off and direct Desmond to the pad. Then you can watch the cutscene where Desmond takes the battery and makes a new friend. Once you are back in the temple, you are asked find a possible slot for the battery if you can or you can just get back to the Animus, let's just find the place where we can store the battery. From the animus machine, fact the other side and you will be able to see some broken steps -
Go up these and around when you reach the top to come to a certain machinery and this is when one of the First Civs contacts you. Behind the machine to the right here is another set of steps -
Go up these and look to the left on the top -
Jump onto the supports and go up and ahead and once you jump back onto the mail platform, go to the right to where you see the First Civ and this is where the battery is placed. This will also open up another area of the temple, for now just get back to the Animus.

Once you are near the docks you will see the two ships you need to destroy. Get into the water and head to the left side ship.
Climb onto the small boat near the front of the ship and then jump onto the ship. Continue up from there to the left or right side of the ship.

Now before you go to the next cover, observe the soldiers ahead for a while. Try to notice their pattern of shooting and the time they are taking to fire each time. Then run ahead from cover to cover to the other end of the field. After you cross the field, go up to the end and climb on top of the tree here and then onto the mountain and continue from there.
Now, move on the outskirts of the area where Pitcairn is and climb onto the tree. Move on top of his head and then take him down - this should be easy. If you try to fight him head on, then you will have a little bit of a scuttle. After you kill him, watch the cutscene.

So not tackle or shove anyone
After you arrive at the place, you will be asked to tail the counterfeiter. Like the last time - move from the corner of one building to the next to avoid beind spotted. After a long while, he will speak to someone. Listen in on the conversation and then move again. The next time, he speaks while moving and you will need to blend in with the people a few times to avoid being spotted. At one point they turn around and you may not have any people to blend but there should be some barrels to the right behind which you can stand. Finally, you are taken to Hickey. He start running so follow him. Getting this optional can be a bit difficult since Hickey keeps throwing coins to cause people to bump into you.

Reach Hickey within 2 minutes
First, listen to the two guys in the adjacent cell for an escape plan. Then you will be taken down. Use Eagle Vision to get the guy with the key and speak with him.

Try not to kill any guards too for the optional. Once you are out of your cell, you will see a guard right ahead. Wait for him to go away and continue up the stairs. Now, there's another guard in the room ahead, you can subdue him and then go up to the topmost floor where two guards are patrolling.
