Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection Announced

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
It's been a year of remasters, and simultaneously a year of terribly-kept secrets... but you'd expect a Master Assassin to cover his tracks a little better.

A lot of us have been highly suspicious that the Assassins Creed Series would be joining the remaster rush for some time now, with pack shots and ratings board listings appearing all over the place. UbiBlog have finally produced the official reveal to tie in with an impressive statistic: more than 100 million Assassin's Creed games have now been sold worldwide.

This November, Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection will have us returning to the rooftops of Renaissance Italy and Constantinople and reliving the life of Ezio Auditore da Firenze.

Ezio Collection

Including the single-player adventures of Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and the single-player DLC of all three games, the collection will also contain existing short movies that expand the history of the Creed: Embers, covering the very last adventure of the esteemed Italian Assassin, and Lineage, exploring the conspiracy unveiled by Ezio's father Giovanni.

The big news here for series completionists is that the multiplayer from Brotherhood and Revelations will not be included in this trilogy. Aymar Azaizia, head of content for the Assassin's Creed brand, stated that the team wanted the single-player to be the focus of this remaster, pointing players to the more polished experience of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag if they really need their cat-and-mouse multiplayer fix.

Nothing further has been revealed beyond the above trailer; the blog contains three older videos exploring each game, but that footage is from the original releases running on a high-spec PC.

Just over a month before the Assassin's Creed movie hits cinemas, The Ezio Collection will be available on November 15th for Xbox One.
