After the recent release of Assassin’s Creed III, Ubisoft will be bundling the game together with the previous games in the series for a bundle, called Assassin’s Creed Anthology. According to Eurogamer, Ubisoft is yet to officially announce the Anthology, but details were revealed thanks to Amazon France. The Assassin's Creed Anthology is set to cost 150 Euro, which roughly translates to Rs 10,400.
The anthology is set to have all the games, including Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, and Assassin’s Creed III. The set is also going to include all the DLCs for the game, including the missing chapters from Assassin’s Creed II, The Da Vinci Disappearance from Brotherhood, and the extra block puzzles from Revelations, along with all the multiplayer packs. It can also be assumed that the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass will be included in the Anthology.
The Assassin's Creed Anthology will cover all the games involving Desmond
Assassin’s Creed III had recently been released in India through a midnight launch event. Ubisoft had released a launch trailer for the game that showed the protagonist – Connor – and his motivations and story in the game.
While some parallels may be drawn with Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II, with both Connor and Ezio essentially joining the Assassin’s order to satisfy their thirst for revenge, but from the trailer, it looks like Connor is more focused on fighting for the greater good – of getting freedom for the land.
The trailer is made completely in-engine with the new Anvil game engine that Ubisoft has developed for the game, and it shows, with the massive amounts of characters on screen and large-scale naval battles. The trailer also shows some of the fluid parkour that Connor is capable of, which includes running through homes and shops to get to the other side of the building faster.
Assassin’s Creed III is said to be the final chapter in Desmond’s story, as this is the game where he will deal with Abstergo, as well as the impending end-of-the-world scenario that was explained by an ancient race in Assassin’s Creed II. On Connor’s side of things, he will be aiding the freedom fighters and founding fathers of America to achieve freedom for the country from the British rule.
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 – 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 Assassin. 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, so he can get some of their skills through something referred to as the 'bleeding effect'. This will help Desmond stand up to the Templars in the present time and stop their plans for world domination.
