PlayStation 3 gamers who haven't met the Assassin's Creed series' renaissance man can become thoroughly acquainted for a reduced price in November. Sony announced the Assassin's Creed Ezio Trilogy this week, a PS3-exclusive compilation of Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations, which will head to retail November 13 for $40.
The three games cover the fictional lifespan of Italian renaissance assassin (renaissassin?) Ezio Auditore from birth to his golden years spent stabbing orderlies in exotic retirement villas (fine, guards in Constantinople.) All associated DLC for ACII is included in the pack, though Sony made no mention of DLC for the other two games.
The trilogy pack will be preceded on October 30 by Assassin's Creed III, the first series entry to star a new assassin since Ezio came onto the scene in 2009. ACIII associate producer Julien Laferrière told Eurogamer that Ubisoft made three games starring the suave master assassin because fans "loved Ezio," and that future appearances of new assassin Connor Kenway will be equally dependant on player reaction.
