See how far the Assassin's Creed series has come with your "day one" copy of Assassin's Creed Revelations for the PlayStation 3 will have a nice little bonus in the form of Assassin's Creed—the 2007 original—free of charge, Ubisoft announced today.

Ubisoft says of the "special partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment" that "gamers will be able to go back to the beginning of the Assassin's Creed storyline" with their initial print run copies of Revelations. Not a bad deal, even if you're already the proud owner of the original, and a good way to bookend the Ezio and Altair saga.

Assassin's Creed Revelations comes to the PlayStation 3 (and Xbox 360 and PC) on November 15, 2011.
