The golden days of Assassin’s Creed is about to return! A French blog has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Ezio’s Collection, a remastered version of the trilogy is heading to PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
The rumors were rife for a couple of months in a time when almost all the best games from the past are being upgraded to full 1080p glory. Skyrim has been remastered and will soon be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms. Fallout 4 is getting a huge mod from Nvidia and GTA V redux mod makes the game look better than ever.
When current generation titles are being pushed to their extreme limits, it is no wonder developers want to bring the old gems back. Call of Duty Modern Warfare is one kickass game from the past which is about to debut in HD resolution along with the new COD Infinite Warfare. Instead of going for bundles, Ubisoft has decided to fill up the gap this year with an old school title.
Named the Assassin’s Creed Ezio’s Collection, the bundle will offer games including Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood and Revelations. All the DLCs that were released for these titles will be included and in short, you get to live as Ezio one more time with that amazing soundtrack and storyline we have come to love. DLCs include Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Embers. Pricing for the bundle is not known at the moment but it shouldn’t be higher than $60 as it allows most people to go for it without second thoughts.
Texture quality will be significantly improved in the new game. Both PS4 and Xbox One consoles are capable of rendering the game at 1080p resolution. However, the French website roughly claims that they will be locked at 30 frames per second to offer better visual fidelity. HD collections are good but AC series have never looked so gloriously good in the past but it is the characters and the story along with that soundtrack that might get you through the Ezio’s collection.
Remaking the first Assassin’s Creed which was the only one to feature Altair should be a good idea. Based on how well the new bundle is received, Ubisoft might consider bringing back Altair. When they announced that AC series will not be out this year, it was surprising but the team has ensured we at least have a remastered Assassin’s Creed to go with this November just in time when its Hollywood counterpart is to be out.
