After multiple leaks, Ubisoft has finally come out and announced that Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection will be hitting PS4 and Xbox One on November 17.

As the previous reports suggested, the collection includes HD remasters of Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, including almost all of their DLC. We still don’t know for sure whether it includes the two animated videos, though.

Unfortunately, the multiplayer modes for Brotherhood and Revelations, and their associated DLCs, will not be included due to reasons that haven’t been made clear. It was a substantial addition to the two entries and was incredibly fun, so it being absent in the collection is a huge disappointment.

Still, seeing Ezio make an appearance on current-gen consoles is nice, and the footage in the trailer up top suggests it’s going to look a hell of a lot prettier than it did the first time around. They’re three of the best games in the series (although I didn’t like Brotherhood as much as the other two), so being able to head back to Italy and Constantinople will be really nice.

Joe is LPVG’s resident hardware nerd. If it’s overpriced and has gaudy RGB lighting, he’s probably drooling over it. He loves platformers, MMOs, RPGs, hack ‘n slashers and FPS, with his favourite games being Mirror’s Edge, Left 4 Dead, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Oblivion and Dead Space. Don’t ask him about his unhealthily large Monsters Inc memorabilia collection. Seriously, just don’t ask…
