Book a ticket back to Renaissance Italy this November 15 with the remastered versions of Ezio Auditore’s Assassin’s Creed storyline.
Ubisoft confirmed today that they will be repackaging three key Assassin’s Creed games (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations) into a remastered set known as The Ezio Collection. This will include all single player content, including DLC, but no multiplayer modes that inaugurated on Brotherhood and made their way onto Revelations as well.
As a special bonus, the collection also includes two short films: Assassin’s Creed: Lineage and Assassin’s Creed: Embers that act as bookends for the storyline.
The full priced collection will retail for $59.99 and feature “enhanced graphics,” though at exactly what resolution or frame rate the games will run in remains a mystery. While the price tag for what is a pack of three games that are more than five years old might seem high, Ubisoft is also including an $8 voucher in case you want to go see the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie staring Magneto (Michael Fassbender). The quality of that is still up in the air though.
It is worth noting that Assassin’s Creed II is backwards compatible with the Xbox One, so the remaster might have to really pack a graphical punch in order to dissuade owners of the console from getting the rest of the games for cheap once they make their inevitable trip to the backwards compatible catalog.
