Promotional Work For Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Collection Have Come To Light


Amazon Italy have now listed the Ezio Collection confirming that the title will launch on November 17.


A promotional image has come to light yesterday by the French gaming site Gameblog, shedding more information on the Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection rumors that were prompted from a Korean Games Rating Board.


Gameblog reported that the Ezio Collection will include Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassins’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations that will all be remastered in 1080p/30fps.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for this remastered or ‘up scaling’ of these iconic titles – they have a special place in my heart as some of my most beloved games as well as being universal fan favourite titles compared to some of the other AC entries in the most recent years.

In 2012 however, there was an Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy which came out in November of that year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, so releasing another collection of the games which features Ezio does seem very odd.

In saying that, graphics have made massive improvements since 2012, so having those iconic titles appear on current gen consoles wouldn’t be a particularly negative thing (only to my bank account).

While all of this is still unconfirmed by Ubisoft, as previously mentioned what prompted the rumours were screenshots from a Korean Game Ratings board website that published age ratings for the supposed collection.

According to NeoGaf, the listings indicated that ratings were awarded recently for PlayStation 4 as well as an Xbox One version.

The collection is reported to also include all the DLC as well as the short films Assassin’s Creed: Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers.

It’s not unusual to have this collection focus again on Ezio Auditore – he is is one of the most beloved assassin protagonists in the series. Aside from his alluring Italian charm, he is one of the only protagonists from the series who has a couple titles dedicated to his story.

According to the report the collection is supposedly going to be available in November 2016 and will cost less than €70/$60.

It makes sense for Ubisoft to release this collection, as they aren’t releasing a new Assassin’s Creed title this year, so this is probably their idea of filling in that gap. while they work on their next title to be set in Egypt for 2017.

This trend of remastering beloved video game titles is definitely a recurring theme as we will see the release the BioShock Collection come out on September 13.

Games like BioShock and Assassin’s Creed have played integral roles in shaping our industry over the past decade, so I say roll on the nostalgia wagon.

Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer Is Finally Here

The official trailer for Assassin’s Creed is finally here and it does not disappoint. Starring Jeremy Irons, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams and Michael Fassbender who plays as Callum Lynch as man on death row and a recruit of Abstergo Corporation. For those of you not well versed with the title, the film is based off Ubisoft’s best-selling games which focalizes on the centuries old fight between the Assassin’s and the Templars. We won’t be getting a new Assassin’s Creed game this year but let’s hope the movie fills that void.

Assassin’s Creed is slated to hit theatres on December 21.

However, rather than follow one of the series more memorable characters like Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, the writers and filmmakers decided to take an entirely new take and create the story from scratch. This isn’t particularly unusual considering most of their new games focuses on different characters from Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag with Edward Kenway to Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Arno Dorian. It wouldn’t be an Assassin’s Creed official poster without the iconic leap of faith in it, right? The official poster can be seen below

Back when news surfaced regarding Fassbender’s  role in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film, to research for the game reported by Entertainment Weekly, he commented, “I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can.”

What do you think about the trailer – do you like that they have chosen to focus on a completely new story or would you have rather they have made a film based on one of the series previous characters.
