Here's what you need from the US PlayStation Store's Assassin's Creed sale

If you've been meaning to catch up on the Assassin's Creed series, the latest US PlayStation Store sale is the perfect way to get started. Buying all 23 items might be a little bit much despite the deep discounts, so I've cross-referenced GR+'s definitive best Assassin's Creed games (opens in new tab) list to present you with an easy selection of the ones you really need to play.

Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag (opens in new tab) for PS4 was $29.99, now $9.89: "Against all expectations, it offered up the biggest game world the franchise had yet seen, an incredible variety of addictive missions, ship combat that was suddenly fun, and an effortlessly beautiful soundtrack that you've probably listened to at least once while nowhere near the game".

Assassin's Creed 2 (opens in new tab) Ultimate Edition for PS3 was $19.99, now $4.99: "Nothing is overlooked, and nothing is wasted: AC2 is an expertly crafted and perfectly honed masterpiece, one that made Assassin's Creed what it is today".

Assassins' Creed Syndicate (opens in new tab) for PS4 was $59.99, now $29.99: "Though it isn't wildly innovative, Syndicate brings together the best parts of the entire Assassin's Creed series under one fancy umbrella, showing what the series is capable of when it tries".

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (opens in new tab) Ultimate Edition for PS3 was $27.99, now $6.99: "Brotherhood is good. So good that it changed the face of the series forever by implementing brand new mechanics that are still around to this day, like capturing territory, addictive multiplayer, and control over a legion of Assassins you can summon at your whim".

Assassin's Creed Revelations (opens in new tab) Ultimate Edition for PS3 was $29.99, now $7.49: "Featuring easily one of the most thoughtful and mature tales the series has yet woven, Revelations set the standard for every Assassin's Creed story since".

The PlayStation Store sale will end on Tuesday afternoon, so don't forget to snag whichever games catch your fancy by then.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
