Ubisoft sent out a press release today detailing a special partnership with Sony for the PS3 version of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. According to Ubisoft, the PS3 version of the game will come with the first Assassin’s Creed title on the same Blu-ray disc.
Assassin’s Creed is the first experimental title that started it all as you take control of Altair, preceding Ezio by nearly 300 years during the third crusade. Incidentally, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is about Ezio following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Altair, by traveling to Jerusalem to uncover the secrets of the assassin legend.
These two games actually complement each other nicely as Ezio’s final journey can be paralleled to Altair’s discovery of the secret war between the Templars and Assassins drawing full circle to where it all started.
It seems like Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is following in the foot steps of the previous game as Ubisoft also offered exclusive DLC level, Copernicus Conspiracy for the PS3 only. I can just imagine the flack Ubisoft is getting from Microsoft in light of the recent reveal of the company’s tight fisted policies regarding content parity between the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The free copy of the Assassin’s Creed will be on the first production copies of Revelations, so you may want to pre-order now or pick it up day one when the game launches November 15h.
