While gamers eagerly await their first next-gen dive into the world of Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft has put together a little something to tide them over.
The terrific-looking Assassin's Creed Unity releases alongside Assassin's Creed Rogue on November 11, 2014, but gamers who've missed the last few games are getting the chance to catch up. Did you fight as Native American warrior Connor Kenway in Assassin's Creed III? Did you take up the banner of freedom as Aveline de Grandpre in Assassin's Creed III: Liberation HD? Did you sail the Caribbean under the Jolly Roger as Edward Kenway in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag?
Assassin's Creed: The Americas Collection bundles all three titles together in a single package. ACIII is probably the weakest of the bunch, as it suffered from its own ambitions (and a lot of bugs), but it gave plenty of fun additions to the formula, bringing the action to America for the very first time. Liberation was originally a PSP title until Ubisoft remastered it in HD for PS3 and Xbox 360; it was sold as download-only, so this marks its first time in stores. Black Flag was a divisive entry; some loved it for its authentic pirate fun, others were bored by its lack of a strong story.
Form your own opinions on October 28, 2014 when Assassin's Creed: The Americas Collection arrives in stores.
