PS4/Xbox One Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection Details Leaked, Runs at 1080p/30 FPS
It looks like the Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection could release this year on PS4 and Xbox One.
Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection appeared on the Korean Ratings Board earlier this month, but now the compilation looks even more likely. French publication Gameblog has posted promotional material and multiple details about the still-unconfirmed collection.
Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection includes Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Gameblog reports that the collection will feature a 1080p resolution running at 30 FPS, in addition to all of the three games' DLC and animated movies Assassin's Creed: Lineage and Assassin's Creed: Embers.
According to Gameblog, Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection releases this November on PS4 and Xbox One for 70€, which is typical for a full-priced title in France. The collection as a whole is still unconfirmed, but it wouldn't be surprising if it were to cost $60 in the United States.
We've contacted Ubisoft for comment on this apparent leak and will keep you updated as we receive more information.
Assassin's Creed II received a score of 9 in our review for its "huge, beautifully realized world to explore," Brotherhood was scored an 8.5 for having fantastic lairs and platforming sequences, and Revelations earned itself an 8 for its "new movement options [that] keep the platforming joyful."
An Assassin's Creed: Ezio Trilogy released on PS3 in 2012, though The Ezio Collection would likely be remastered for modern consoles. You can already play Assassin's Creed II on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility program.
The next Assassin's Creed game is expected to release in 2017. It's rumored to be set in Egypt, subtitled "Empire." It's said to be "a complete revamp of the series" featuring "a Witcher feel, with player progression" and a "freeform combat system." Ubisoft confirmed that it wouldn't release a new Assassin's Creed game this year but didn't divulge any other details about future games or collections in the series.
