Optional Objectives:

  • Two Smoke Bomb evasions
  • Three Perfect Parries

Blamed for the death of De La Serre, Arno finds himself thrown into the Bastille. Take a moment to look around, noting the familiar markings on the wall, and talk to everyone before you examine the cot to sleep off your hangover.

In the morning the man that was in the room with all the Assassin writings will challenge Arno to a duel. This actually acts as a tutorial for perfect parries, which you should already know how to do, so deal with him for another scene and then use Eagle Vision to concentrate and reveal the writing.

Use perfect parries to beat up the man and then Eagle Vision to reveal the writing.

The man introduces himself a Bellec and reveals the details of Arno’s past, and who is father truly was. After two months, and likely countless hours training, the time comes to escape the Bastille with a little help from the revolting French that riot outside.

When you gain control again head to the room with the Assassin writings and take cover to allow the guards to enter. Once they settle in the room, break from cover and walk behind the far guard and stealth kill him as the screen prompts by holding O / B.

Bellec will run off and you should follow him until he reaches a gate and tells you to cover him. This will activate both of the optional objectives, so start by ticking off the Perfect Parries by pressing O / B when the attack bar flashes yellow and then kill off the enemies.

When the second wave of guard appears you’ll want to complete the second objective by tapping R1 / RB to toss down a Smoke Bomb. You can continue to attack the enemies while they are stunned, but make sure you throw down three bombs before you kill off the final guard.

Stealth kill the guards that enter the cell (left). When the second wave of enemies attacks make sure to use Smoke Bombs to complete the objective (right).

Bellec will finally open the gate, so run straight on and then turn left to ignore the guards and hop out the open window. Bellec will follow, or lead depending on how fast you are, and outside he’ll run across the roofing and jump across some beams, cross a rope, and then climb to another window. Follow Bellec through the rooms to a door that he will kick down and then eliminate the guards outside.

Follow Bellec across the outside of the Bastille and then take out the guards you encounter.

After the guards are dead Bellec will continue by jumping to a beam and then climbing to the roof. Keep following Bellec until you trigger a scene and when you gain control leap of faith off the ledge to trigger the opening title and two cutscenes.

Watch the two scenes that set Arno along a path that leads to the Brotherhood.

The story continues with Arno Dorian, a French nobleman raised by the Templar Grand Master, Francois De La Serre. After the death of his father, an Assassin, De La Serre adopts Arno and raises him as his own son, alongside his daughter Elise. Thirteen years later, on the eve of Elies’s induction into the Templar Order, De La Serre is murdered and Arno is jailed in the Bastille as the culprit. Vowing to track down the killer of the man who raised him, Arno finds himself joining the Assassin Brotherhood and following a trail of corruption that goes much deeper than every imagined.
