Special Editions of Assassin's Creed III Finally Unveiled for North America
Gamers in Europe have known about their three special editions of Assassin's Creed III for some time now, and some thought only Europeans would be getting that treatment. That all changes as Ubisoft has revealed some special editions of Assassin's Creed III for North America. All reigions will still receive the previously revealed Ubiworkshop Edition, but this marks the first North America-exclusive edition of the game. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gamers who shell out $120 for the Limited Edition will receive a 9.44" statue of Connor, an embroidered 28"x48" Assassin's Creed-inspired Colonial Flag, and a 3"x3.25" metal belt buckle.
PC gamers will only have to shell out $65 to receive the Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes George Washington's notebook, three single player missions "from the high seas to Cozumel Island in search of Captain Kidd’s fabled lost treasure," Captain of the Aquila's uniform, Colonial Assassin outfit, boarding axe, and Scottish flintlock, Redcoat/Sharpshooter characters for multiplayer, and selected audio tracks from the Assassin's Creed series.
Assassin's Creed III will arrive on October 30th (but possibly a month later for the PC). There will also be a PS3 bundle available for those who want to pick up Sony's console and get what is shaping up to be a terrific game.
