Assassin's Creed III Limited and Digital Deluxe Editions announced
It's around this time every year that Americans across the nation feel a heightened love for their country and remember its impactful (yet short, compared to most of the world) history. And while people usually celebrate with fireworks, Ubisoft is celebrating with news for Assassin's Creed III. In particular, two special editions that will make you feel like a patriot, months after July has come and gone.
The publisher announced today the Assassin's Creed III Limited Edition for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This version will be released alongside the normal version on October 30 exclusively in North America and Latin America (sorry, world, this edition is all-American) for a rather pricey $119.99.
"$119.99?!" you may say in alarm, and while that is indeed a high price to pay, the Limited Edition's goodies – which include the game (obviously), a 9 ½ inch statue featuring assassin Connor with tomahawk and hidden blade, a 28-by-48 colonial flag inspired by the game, and an assassin-themed metal belt buckle –will help ease your worried mind and get you in a patriotic mood for the game.
If you're a PC gamer reading this and wondering where the PC's Limited Edition is, rest assured, for Ubisoft hasn't forgotten you. Alongside the Limited Edition for consoles, it will release the Assassin's Creed III Digital Deluxe Edition for PC.
The Assassin's Creed III Limited Edition is available for pre-order at GameStop, Amazon.com, Best Buy, Target, and Wal-Mart.
Along with the game, this version will include such extras as a notebook that showed what George Washington was really doing during the American Revolution, three single-missions that set players on the hunt for the fabled lost treasure of Captain Kidd, and a collection of the series' best audio tracks, as well as costumes, multiplayer characters, and weapons.
Like the Limited Edition, the Digital Deluxe Edition is available for pre-order, this time from digital retailers like UBIShop. This version will set you back $64.99, a considerably better deal than the Limited Edition, don't you think?
