Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Announced

It seems that this generation of games console is slowly becoming the remaster generation. With the release of the Bioshock Collection just days away, Ubisoft have now announced that their most popular franchise is returning with Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection.

The collection will include the remasters of three of the last generations Assassin’s Creed games, Assassin’s Creed II (2009), Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (2010) and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (2011). The three games tell the story of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a story arc which has proved extremely popular amongst fans of the franchise.

The collection will include each of the game’s story campaigns, as well as all of the expansion DLCs released. Online multiplayer action will, however, not be included in the pack despite originally debuting in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and also being part of Revelations. In addition to the games and add-ons, The Ezio Collection will include Assassin’s Creed: Lineage, a 36-minute short film that serves as a prequel to Assassin’s Creed 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Embers, an animated epilogue to Revelations.

As with other remastered collections, all three Assassin’s Creed titles will feature enhanced graphics, although Ubisoft has yet to confirm whether the games will run at 1080p with an improved frame rate.

The collection is an unsurprising announcement given a recent unconfirmed leak hinted at the game was coming. In addition, Ubisoft had previously announced that no new Assassin’s Creed title was coming this year, against the usual yearly title we’ve come to expect from the franchise. If that wasn’t enough, the timing for the release couldn’t be more suited for the ramp up to Assassin’s Creed’s movie debut due out in cinemas later in the year.

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection is set for release on November 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One,
