    Complete the Prologue and enjoy the video about Helix. You may only see it once. Normally, the achievement will unlock by the time you take control of Arno.


    "But PaleGringo... it didn't unlock"

    I started playing this game simultaneously with the Mrs. on November 24, 2014. She got this achievement when she completed the prologue, and I did not. After getting all the other achievements in the game, however, I was able to get this one by precisely executing the following 10 step program:

    1. Guide Button > Menu Button > Quit Assassins Creed Unity
    2. Menu Button > Manage Game > Press A on your Saved Data (100+ KB)
    4. Settings > Network > Go Offline (This will prevent your XBL save from synchronizing to your local box)
    5. Launch Assassin's Creed Unity and play through the Prologue as normal.
    6. After ...
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    ... Guide Button > Settings > Network Go Online. In a few moments after resuming the game, the achievement should finally unlock.

    Now... to get your save data back

    7. Guide button > Menu Button > Quit Assassins Creed Unity
    8. From the Guide, Menu Button > Manage Game.
    9. Again, delete your Saved Data file (64.4KB when I did it this time)
    10. Start Assassin's Creed Unity. You should see a "Synchronizing" screen pop up as your XBL file is copied back to your box. Voila... the 1% of us that never got this achievement will now have it.

    Message me on XBL or on here if you need some help or are unsure about any of these steps. Happy assassinating!

    PS4 version of the Prologue is embedded below.

    PrimeBigTimeThe prologue = the video or complete the prologue AND then watch the video? I don't get a prologue. I just get a video

    PaleGringoAfter the Helix video, it should put up a screen with about 20 Templar missions, all but the first one are locked. Select the one that isn't locked, and play the prologue (really a movement and combat tutorial), followed by another quick video cutscene.

    If you are introduced to Arno as a boy, it's already done.

    PrimeBigTimeYeah finally figured it out. Was worried about missing it. May want to add to the solution. Sounds simple enough but thought it was the intro video and restarted.

    Wishwash182Didnt unlock, tried deleting my save and replaying about 5 times, still does not unlock. This game is a glitchy pile of crap!

    Captain Chao5Thanks for this. I followed the steps exactly and it popped for me. It had made me notice i also haven't got the achievement for Chapter 1 either! Even though I've completed all 12. Think I'll try this fix for that one too!
