In an attempt to hype up the Assassin’s Creed franchise for the imminent launch of Black Flag, Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed Heritage Collection. The Heritage Collection will hit stores on November 8, and will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It will cost Rs 2,999 on the consoles, but sadly, no pricing for the PC version in India has been announced yet.
The Heritage Collection consists of five of the major games from the Assassin’s Creed franchise; Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 2 Game of the Year Edition, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Assassin’s Creed 3. Except for Assassin’s Creed 3, all of the games will come with their respective DLC packs.
The Heritage Collection is coming to India in November
The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted for millennia between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins seek to fight for the free will of people, while the Templars seek to control them. The first game was set during the Holy Crusades in Jerusalem. Protagonist Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad would have to jump from rooftops and sneak into groups of people in order to find and assassinate his targets.
The second game was set during the Renaissance era in Florence. The main protagonist of the 'II' series of games—Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations—is Ezio Auditore. The II series of games dealt with the evolution of Ezio as a character, who starts out as a revenge-driven teenager and ends up as a highly-skilled master of Assassins. Altaïr is also featured in Revelations, and the aged assassin’s last few days are shown. The secondary protagonist of the series is Desmond Miles, who is accessing his 'genetic memory' to live the lives of his ancestors Altaïr and Ezio.
The latest game in the series puts you in control of Connor Kenway as you travel through the frontier and watch the American Revolution unfold.
