Assassin’s Creed: Heritage Collection is all of them in one place


It’s self-evident that Heritage might be a good name for a compilation of synthesised historical cities. But it’s especially fitting for this series which began in 2007 yet seems to have been going on much, much longer. Five Assassin’s Creed games have been released on PC to date; by this time next year there’ll be two more, but in the meantime there’s a bundle which pulls six years of fevered and quite impressive iteration together.

Read on if, like Brad Pitt, you’d like to find out what’s in the box.

  • Assassin’s Creed: Draw your blades as Syrian Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad during the Third Crusade.
  • Assassin’s Creed II (Game of the Year Edition): Lead your Brotherhood as Ezio Audtiore in the Italian Renaissance, also containing the Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities DLCs.
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood: Set-up your Assassin Brotherhood in Rome to overthrow the Borgia Family.
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations: Follow in the footsteps of the legendary Altaïr in Constantinople to close the Renaissance Trilogy.
  • Assassin’s Creed III: Challenge the Templar’s supremacy as Connor throughout the American Revolution.

You’ll be able to buy it in EMEA territories, which means most of the world that isn’t America or Japan, from November 8. A Friday, in case you’re planning an excursion.

Did you know? 57 million copies of Assassin’s Creed games have been sold since we started stabbing unsuspecting people in the throat and back. As you might have guessed, that places it among the best-selling series there are. How many have you bought? I’ve got two, but I’m definitely bagging the pirate oneand all.
