We’re not getting a brand new Assassin’s Creed game this year, but Ubisoft is making it up to fans by releasing Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection, a current-gen remaster which includes touched up versions of Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the three core Assassin’s Creed games starring Italian assassin Ezio Auditore. In the latest trailer for The Ezio Collection, Ubisoft shows just how much better the three games will look on current-gen consoles.
The trailer features snippets of gameplay and cinematics from all three games, using a comparison filter to show in real-time how much the graphics have been improved for the remastered versions. According to Ubisoft, all three games in The Ezio Collection will feature resolution support up to 1080p, reduced screen tearing, and improved post-processing effects, textures, and draw distances, much of which you can see in the trailer itself.
Sadly, The Ezio Collection won’t include the competitive multiplayer components which were part of the original Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Revelations releases, instead sticking solely with Ezio’s single-player adventures. However, it will include the 36-minute live-action film Assassin’s Creed: Lineage (a film which stars Ezio’s father and serves as a prequel to the events shown in Assassin’s Creed 2) as well as the animated film Assassin’s Creed: Embers (a film which serves as an epilogue to the events from Assassin’s Creed Revelations).
Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection will launch for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 15th. For more on the latest from Ubisoft, be sure to check out our look at The Division’s upcoming second expansion, Survival.
