An online listing further confirms the existence of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection by leaking the forthcoming anthology's price and release date.
Following the recent promo image leak of Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection a couple of days ago, even more information about the compendium for Ubisoft's action-adventure games has now made its way online. According to a listing on Amazon Italy's website, fans of the franchise will be able to obtain the Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection starting on November 17, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
If the post on the global retailer's page is to be believed, then fans looking to purchase the Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection upon its release will have to shell out €50, which translates to either a £50 or $60 price tag in the England and United States markets. However, since Ubisoft has yet to officially announce the anthology, all of these details should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are certainly subject to change.
For those unaware, the Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection was initially revealed for PS4 and Xbox One by the Korean Ratings Board a couple of weeks back, as the organization had a listing for the games on its site. Of course, once knowledge of the collection made its way online, many speculated that due to the nature of it's title that it would include all of the releases starring Ezio Auditore da Firenze, and thus would be similar to the Ezio Trilogy on PS3 and Xbox 360, save for a graphical update for current generation platforms.
Speaking of visual enhancements, it has been previously reported that the Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will feature a 1080p resolution running at 30 FPS for the included releases of Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations. On top of the games themselves, speculation is pointing to the possibility of the anthology also having the animated movies Assassin’s Creed: Lineage and Assassin’s Creed: Embers, as well as all of the DLC for the aforementioned titles.
Interestingly enough, conjecture about the existence of an anthology akin to the Ezio Collection has been making the rounds on the Internet for a while ever since Ubisoft filed for a domain registration several months ago for the "assassinscreedcollection.com" site. Of course, this led many to guess that a compilation was not only being made to appease the fans of the franchise who wanted remastered versions of some of the top games of the last generation, but also to promote the live-action movie based on the series. At any rate, it will be interesting to see when, or if Ubisoft addresses the actuality of the bundle.
