Assassin’s Creed 3 The Infamy is the first part of the ‘Tyranny of King Washington’ series of downloadable content. It sets the theme of and alternate take on the revolution of America.
In this alternate reality Connor wakes up in his village to find that his mother is alive and everything he fought for in the actual game never happened. We’ve compiled a guide to help you through the main story missions and how to achieve 100% synchronization.
After you’re done with the opening sequence, Follow your mother as she takes you to a cliff that you must climb. After your ascent, you will be prompted to rescue the Huntress who is being attacked by a few guards. Take out the guards with the help of your mother.
After the cutscene, you’ll get a new optional objective; Kill 5 Bluecoats while remaining undetected. Proceed to the church via the cemetery. You will see a guard here standing next to a haystack who your mother will kill. However, if you’re fast enough, you can stealthily kill the guard yourself and have it count towards your optional objective.
If you look at the map, you’ll notice that there is a guard in front and a bit to the left of the cemetery with his back to you (a fatal mistake). Sneak up behind him and kill him from the bushes. Now there is another guard to the right and one that paces around here a bit. Take them down in whatever order you wish but timing is important as you don’t want to be spotted.
Now the last guard is found kneeling on the path along the side of the house, you can kill him any way you please, but standing at the corner while whistling for his attention worked for us.
Now you can kill the remaining guards any way you like, and then head for the church door. After the cutscene, hotfoot it after Kaniehi:io to avoid the cannon barrage.
You’ll get to the cannons where you need to clear out the bluecoats to stop the firing. Once you do so there will be another cutscene after which you get another optional objective; this time to not let any Bluecoats into Concord. Commandeer the cannons and focus-fire the groups of soldiers that are heading straight into the town.
After the cannons, follow Kaniehi:io again. She will eventually take you to Lexington where you meet King Washington. After yet another cutscene, you need to stop some bluecoats from lighting the fuses of some explosive barrels around town. Make sure not a single fuse is lit if you want 100% synch. There’s no trick to this, all you can do is focus on the ones lighting the fuses to the exclusion of all the other enemies.
Warn the Village
After the opening cutscene in this one, grab a horse and follow after your mother as you ride to warn your village. Eventually you will be ambushed by bluecoats and your horse will be shot. Simply fight off the aggressors and try to keep your mother alive. You will get new mounts and continue onwards to the village.
After more cutscenes, you will have to defend the village from the numerous enemy forces that are attacking. Just keep fighting them off until King Washington shows up. You will fight him and you will lose.
There are no optional objectives in this one, you automatically get 100% synch.
Sky World Journey
Quite some time has passed since the time you tried to kill Washington. Go to the willow tree waypoint and talk to the man kneeling by the campfire when you get there.
After your chat, scale the tree. When you get near the top, you will find an area that’s carved out. Interact with the carving to collect a sample of the bark. Now dive down to the bush and head to the campfire to brew some tea with the bark.
After you ingest the funky concoction, you’ll enter a world similar to the animus, where you will find some spirit wolves. Follow the wolves as they lead you through this world. There will be sections where you slide down some slippery slopes. As you do so, make sure to steer yourself right and left to avoid the rocks on the way if you want 100% synch.
Soon, you’ll find yourself tracking an Elk. Listen for the beast’s heartbeat to track it (your screen distorts in harmony with the beats) and keep heading in the direction the sound leads you to find it.
After chasing it for a bit you’ll be prompted to kill it undetected (for 100% synch). Use the new Wolf Cloak power to turn invisible and slay the animal.
After you wake up you’ll find yourself surrounded by bluecoats. Use the Wolf Cloak to hide in the bushes until they go away or you regain your health (using Wolf Cloak depletes your health).
