Five Assassin’s Creed Games Land On PlayStation Now Service Tomorrow

by Mike Futter on Sep 14, 2015 at 08:36 AM

The first five games in the Assassin’s Creed series will arrive on Sony’s game streaming service tomorrow. If you happened to miss Altair, Ezio, and Connor Kenway on PlayStation 3, you can play catchup in advance of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s release.

Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, and Assassin’s Creed III mark the series introduction to PlayStation Now. This leaves Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, and Assassin’s Creed Rogue as the titles from the series yet to join the party.

Ubisoft has put a substantial portion of its PlayStation 3 library on the service already. Both of the Rainbow Six: Vegas games, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, three Call of Juarez titles, Far Cry 3, and the Prince of Persia trilogy are already available.

If you’re all caught up, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be along shortly. It’s due out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 23. The PC installment has been pushed until November.

Our Take
Even with over 400 games on the PlayStation Now service, I’m not convinced. With Microsoft introducing broad scale backward compatibility, Sony is at a disadvantage in this area.
