I'm new to the AC franchise, and this game is high on my wanted list at the moment. I am wondering, will it be easy for me to get the hang of, as I haven't played any previous AC games. Will I be able to understand the story?
Recently i've been playing FC3:Blood Dragon, and also have an extremely keen eye on Watch Dogs, so I am getting to know the upcoming Ubisoft games well.
Is there anything you can tell me about the series I should/need to know befor playing? How many hours (roughly) have each of you clocked on the previous games?

if your still wondering since the desmond backstory ended in ac3 this one stands on its own so you can play it without missing out on too much.

It won't be too bad as the Desmond story ended as the above guy said in AC3. However there may be a few things you won't get.

Also the story in the later games really isn't as good as the first and second games. but never the less. Its a good game you will enjoy.
