The secret, not so secret, reveal of The Ezio Trilogy for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 comes at a time when the next game would usually be releasing. This year, Ubisoft decided that the three games that made Assassin’s Creed what it is today, needed to be released to both consoles from Microsoft and Sony to tide over those eager fans of the series until the potential AC Egypt game released.
The Ezio Collection puts the single-player experiences of its three games front and center, focusing entirely on Ezio’s journey. While that means the innovative hide-and-hunt multiplayer of Brotherhood and Revelations won’t be included, Azaizia is quick to point out that the most polished and fully featured version of that multiplayer is still playable in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
In addition to featuring the three games and their expansions with enhanced graphics, the collection also comes with Assassin’s Creed Embers and the three-part Assassin’s Creed Lineage, short films that dig into Ezio’s backstory and add an action-packed epilogue to the trilogy. Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection will be available on November 15 on Xbox One and PS4, giving fans a chance to catch up before the Assassin’s Creed movie – which unfolds in a different part of the world in roughly the same era – hits theaters on December 21.
