Some of the most popular games of this console generation have been the Assassin’s Creed series. While the first game was panned by critics for having repetitive mission structure, it was praised for having innovative gameplay and setting. The second game is where the franchise really hit its stride. Now, Ubisoft is all set to release the Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy set exclusively for the PlayStation 3, according to PlayStation Blog.
The Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy set will contain the three games that are based around the life of Ezio Auditore. The three games are Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Along with the games, the bundle will also contain all the DLC for Assassin’s Creed II, such as the Bonfire of the Vanities mission.

The Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy set seems to be a godsend for those who haven’t been able to get into the games, but are now interested because of the hype that is being generated for the next game in the series – Assassin’s Creed III. This game is going to be set during the American fight for independence and will feature a new protagonist – Connor. The game is all set to have some new gameplay mechanics to help the protagonist with better travel environments. Players can use parkour to travel through trees, whereas the new combat system allows the capability to dual-wield weapons. The game also shows off the new Anvil engine that allows for a large number of characters to be on screen.
The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted 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 (which are 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 only to become a highly-skilled master of Assassins. Altaïr also makes an appearance in Revelation, showing the aged assassin’s last few days. 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.
Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy is set to release on November 14 exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Assassin's Creed III will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30, and the PC version will be released on November 20.
