Assassin's Creed: Revelations for PS3 packs in original game

Altair's complete first adventure bundled as bonus for first run of Ubisoft's latest historical adventure game on Sony's console.

by

The mythology of the Assassin's Creed franchise has grown with every new installment in the series, and Ubisoft is offering gamers a chance for a refresher course on the series' roots with the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

The PS3 version of Assassin's Creed: Revelations will include Altair's first outing as well.

Ubisoft today announced that the initial run of the PlayStation 3 edition of Assassin's Creed: Revelations will come packed in with a copy of the original Assassin's Creed on the PS3. The publisher said the promotion was made possible by a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment America.

Hitting stores November 15, Revelations will follow the story of Ezio, who was first introduced in Assassin's Creed II. This time out, Ezio will seek out the haunts of original Assassin's Creed protagonist Altair, visiting such Middle East strongholds as the Ottoman Empire's Constantinople. There, Ezio will once again take up arms against the Templar order.

Does Assassins Creed Liberation greatest hits come with AC1 free as well?

Hmm.. pre-ordered the game from Gamestop to get upgraded to Signature Edition for free. Will I still get AC1 with it?

I hope they fix the frame rate issues and tearing with the original AC. I doubt it though. I played it first on the PC, then got it cheap for the PS3 and almost regretted it because it ran so poorly :(

Why don't we Xbox owners get free content? :(

@AcidSoldner I should also point out that your arguments is serving no purpose other than to rain on the parades of people who were excited about the prospect of getting the original game free with Revelations. If you think AC is that much better on 360, don't get the PS3 version of Revelations and don't ever concern yourself with the bonus that the BD format affords PS people. If I have any advice to give PS gamers who played AC2, ACB and are planning on picking up ACR, it's to enjoy the free game, fill out those story gaps in your head and if you have a good time playing it, remember that the jerks who tried to ruin the party lost. And for the 360 players out there, you can still get AC1 for like $20, it's not as slick as the Ezio games, but it's a pretty good time.

@AcidSoldner I've now stated twice, that I disagree with your claim that the PS3 version looks inferior. Granted I am running a 30" CRT HDTV on which the max output is 1080i, but viewing both version of Assassins Creed 1 concurrently, there is very little difference between the two. The textures on the 360 version are a bit sharper, but the PS3 version has a dreamy quality to it (particularly in the Jerusalem map) that make it more aesthetically appealing. One thing you haven't mentioned, is whether or not you've actually seen both version in actions instead of coughing up alleged facts. As for your precious Eurogamer site, if they were so awesome, they'd be able to hire graphic designers that don't make their site look like an utter mess. If they can't manage the aesthetics of their own website, why should I trust their opinion on how games look. Better to play the games myself and form my own opinion.

@grey_fox1984 The lead platform is the platform in which the game was developed for and foremost as a base for the game. The development may have started on the PS3 as an exclusive and as the lead platform but early on in development Assassin's Creed development shifted to the 360 as the lead platform and then later ported to the 360. Again, following your logic, why would the LEAD PLATFORM's version look INFERIOR compared the ported version. Think about that for a second, it makes absolutely no sense. And Eurogamer.com's Digital Foundry is a very reputable source. If you were at all informed on gaming, you would know that it is the premiere place for multiplatform comparisons.

@AcidSoldner I read your link- didn't seem like a very reliable source- but what exactly do you define as "lead" platform? I consider lead to be the first that it was developed for. Whether or not it ended up being the superior version (which again, is not the gigantic quality gap you claim- I've played and cleared both versions), the PS3 was undoubtedly the first version to be developed. As far as education goes, googling something to fuel your fanboy flames doesn't exactly make you a rhode scholar bud.

I already own AC1 for PC (got 4 games bundled on Steam) so this means very little to me. By other hand, if there's trophy on it then I'll be glad to pre-order it.

Sweet. I always enjoyed the first one. Repititous; yes, but I loved the atmosphere. Now I wish I'd never sold II and AssBro!

If you've played 2 or Brotherhood, the original now seems horribly dated... it took them a little while to refine the formula. It's a nice gesture, though.

@Outer_Raven i am an xbox gamer and i enjoy it. i also follow playstation news and i think this is pretty cool. my stance on things like this is always the same: many of us have played and beat the first assassins creed so this gives us an option to give this(the first game) to a friend or family member to get them in on the fun! if they did this on the 360 i know i would. not every gamer is a "fanboy" or "flamer". i know i am not. when i get my ps3 and i get this game, there will be no use to own the first one, i will just give it to my friend who owns a ps3

@EL1CHEF Nahhh each to their own.. Go for it. I'll tell you one thing though, you do actually have to concentrate to read your posts :P

I own an XB360. What do I get?? D:

@TevoxZi I have heard of it, I know all there really is to know about it, and onlive coupons have nothing to do with this. It's not a copy of a game to download from a competitor, it's a free game, what's not to like? And if you paid attention to Deus Ex v. Gamesop debacle, they actually reimbursed every person that didn't get the coupon in the game.

Thats a pretty kick-a** bonus, even if I do already have it.

I doubt this will have trophy support. If Ubisoft were going to patch trophies for ACI, they would of done it by now.

I... already own the first. Unless they slapped on trophies, it's not worth anything to me.

The first one was great back in 07 but it was so repetitive, eavesdrop, pick pocket, interogate, assassinate, in that order every time. but I guess this is still cool, I sold my 360 version of AC1 a few years back so I'll play through this one again when I get revelations.

They should give the PS3 version the trophies like in the 360 version.

I guess if you wanna catch up on the story of Altair that's great. I personally couldn't play the first game for more then a few hours though. It was so bad. So I'll just use the internet to catch up.
