While it may sound a bit far-fetched given its reputation, there are, in fact, still plenty of people out there who never played an Assassin’s Creed game. Shocking, I know. If you happen to be part of said group and want to see what all the fuss is about, now’s your chance to finally jump into the series for just a few bucks. How so? Well, the latest Humble Bundle is focused entirely on the Assassin’s Creed franchise and contains a total of nine titles, which happen to constitute most of the game in the series.
As with every Humble Bundle, the nine games are divided into three different tiers, each more expensive than the rest, though still very cheap in the grand scheme of things. The “pay what you want” tier is pretty self-explanatory and features the original Assassin’s Creed along with the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy, which includes India, China, and Russia. If you’re willing to pay more than the average ($7.36 as of this writing) you’ll also get Liberation HD, AC II, AC III, as well as the Tyranny of King Washington DLC for the latter. Finally, for a total of $15 gamers can get all of the above along with Assassin’s Creed Unity and AC Brotherhood.
While undoubtedly providing good value for the money, it’s worth mentioning that all the games featured in the Assassin’s Creed Humble Bundle can only be played on UPlay. That said, if you were waiting to give the series a shot, it may be worth overlooking this inconvenience. The retail value of this bundle is estimated at $177 so having to put up with UPlay seems like a small price to pay all things considered.
