If the Assassin’s Creed games haven’t done a great deal for you lately, then perhaps the characters have something to do with it. So to capitalise on the fact that no-one has come close to matching the suave Ezio, Ubisoft is bringing him back through a remaster.
It’s called Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection, a remastered bundle including Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations for PS4 and Xbox One.
It’s only the single-player and DLC though, so you won’t get any benefit from the multiplayer that was first introduced to the series with Brotherhood. Ubisoft’s reason for that is pretty straightforward, saying that “the most polished and fully featured version of that multiplayer is still playable” with Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.
A PC version of the Ezio Collection hasn’t been announced yet, although Ubisoft typically pushes those out a month or two after their console release. The remastered bundle is currently set to launch on November 17, according to local retailer listings.
It’s worth mentioning that you can already play Assassin’s Creed 2 on Xbox One thanks to the backward compatible program. That’s only on Xbox though, and for those who only just experienced the AC series when they first bought a console (as Black Flag was a common game bundled with the PS4 and Xbox One in its first year) this might be worth a look.
