If you're new to the Assassin's Creed series, and you've got 120 quid to spare, watch out - there's around 200 hours of urban free-running in period dress, poised to leap onto your shoulders and stab you in the ear. Ubisoft has circulated final details of the Assassin's Creed Anthology, which launches tomorrow exclusively at Amazon UK.
As detailed on VG247, the anthology grants access to all Assassin's Creed DLC ever, and includes five exclusive lithographs, an exclusive steel book and a collector's box. Brace for bullet points after the pic...
- Assassin's Creed
- Assassin's Creed 2 and DLC Sequence 12: Battle of Forlė and Sequence 13: Bonfire of the Vanities.
- Assassin's Creed Brotherhood - The Da Vinci Edition as well as: The Da Vinci Disappearance single player story mission; Trajan Market and the Aqueducts solo missions and a multiplayer map and six characters and two new modes.
- Assassin's Creed Revelations - The Ottoman Edition as well as: The Lost Archive, Vlad the Impaler's Prison; new singleplayer Features: three Skins, capacity upgrades and the additional mission; multiplayer Features with six maps and seven characters and customization items.
- Assassin's Creed 3 and its Season Pass.
We weren't entirely blown away by Assassin's Creed 3, and Revelations was a bit of a confused effort too, but this is otherwise a franchise worth getting to grips with. Ubisoft's already talking about Assassin's Creed 4, which could follow on directly from the events of the third game.
Question for the thread, which may or may not feed into a feature I'll write tomorrow: which is the best Assassin's Creed game?
