New Toys for the faithful Fan Girls and Boys of Assassin’s Creed III
Over the years, Limited Edition packs have evolved. What started off as a unique box cover with an extra DVD and a little booklet to help satisfy the dedicated fans has evolved into full fledged ‘treasure chests’ brimming with rewards such as unique content, figurines and larger books with exclusive material. Some of the better known Limited Edition packs include Halo 3 which came with a full sized Mjolnir VI helmet replica, Halo Reach with a model statuette of Nobel Team and Skyrim which came with a statuette of Alduine on a Dragon wall.
Now, it seems that Assassin’s Creed III is joining in the ranks of Limited Edition pack makers. In a recent announcement, Ubisoft has revealed the contents in their limited edition packets. That’s right, I said packetS, as in there is more than one. Two packs will be released by Ubisoft, including a Limited Edition packet, and a Deluxe Digital Edition which is reserved for PC gamers.
Limited Edition Packet includes:
- The Game (Obviously)
- Stunning 9.44″ Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade.
- Embroidered 28″x48″ Assassin’s Creed-inspired colonial flag.
- 3″x3.25″ sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins.
The total cost for all of these nifty gadget brings the price of the Limited Edition Pack up to $120.00, which may seem to be a tad bit pricey, though super fans would probably believe that cost is no object.
The Deluxe Digital Edition Includes:
- The Game (Once again, obviously)
- George Washington’s notebook revealing his true story during the American Revolution.
- Three single-player missions taking players from the high seas to Cozumel Island in search of Captain Kidd’s fabled lost treasure.
- The Captain of the Aquila’s uniform and traditional Colonial Assassin outfit, boarding axe and Scottish flintlock – rumored to have fired “the shot heard round the world” – for use in the single-player campaign.
- Sharpshooter and Redcoat characters for use in multiplayer.
- A collection of the best audio tracks from previous Assassin’s Creed games.
The total cost of the Deluxe Digital Edition costs a total of $65.oo, which is far more reasonable than the limited edition of you ask me, though gamers won’t receive that statuette, flag, or belt buckle.
Along with revealing these special edition cases, Ubisoft has released a new trailer to commemorate the holiday 4th of July, which is almost upon us!
Anyway, whether you prefer to get the normal game, or the extended edition, at least you know the options!
