Ubisoft just couldn't do it. The publisher had said that it wanted to give Assassin's Creed a break, and we'd let the French firm off the hook when it deployed those episodic side-scrolling games. But here we are: the holidays are approaching, and it's managed to pump out Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection just in time.

The remastered compilation will include Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin's Creed Revelations – all appearing for the first time on the PlayStation 4. It's been seven years since the first game in Ezio Auditore's trilogy, and it's already looking ancient – despite the upscaling that's going on.

The set will get stabby on 15th November in North America and 17th November in Europe. If you purchase the game in the Land of the Free, then you'll be eligible for an $8 off voucher against theatre tickets for the new movie, which is a reasonable enough extra incentive we suppose. Will you be returning to Rome this Christmas? Pull up your hood in the comments section below.
