Ubisoft has today announced that Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection will be hitting the Nintendo Switch on December 6th – and it's a system exclusive.
This pack contains Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (and all of its DLC) and Assassin’s Creed Rogue – two titles from the history of the franchise that will be playable on the go for the first time. This confirms the rumours kickstarted by a retailer listing earlier this week.
Furthermore, Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection will harness the capabilities of the Switch via HD Rumble, touchscreen controls, an optimized HUD and motion aiming.
Here's some PR detailing exactly what's included:
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Players will sail into the Golden Age of Piracy, where pirates have established their own lawless Republic. Playing as Edward Kenway, the most feared pirate captain in the Caribbean, players will take part in world-famous battles, discover hidden treasures, and earn the respect of legendary characters like Blackbeard. The game’s vast open world features countless remote islands where corruption, greed, and cruelty are commonplace.
All single-player DLCs, including Aveline and Freedom Cry. Play as Aveline during a rogue period of self-discovery, unsure of her alliances, but more committed than ever to defending and liberating slaves. In Freedom Cry, former slave Adewale finds freedom as a pirate aboard Edward Kenway's ship. 15 years later, Adewale becomes a trained Assassin to free the slaves and avenge them. Both these DLCs and more will be available in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Amidst the chaos of the French and Indian War, players will embrace one man’s slow descent into darkness, forever shaping the future of the American colonies. As Shay Patrick Cormac, they will transform from a loyal member of the Assassin Brotherhood into the ultimate assassin hunter. On a perilous journey through America and the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic, players will take the perspective of a Templar for the first time in franchise history.
