Ubisoft today unveiled three Collectors Editions of Assassins Creed III.
Standard Edition for me "wootey woot"
I WANT THAT FREEDOM EDITION!
I'd rather get the standard edition and buy a $20 PSN card to buy the extra 3 missions. I'd rather spend money on something that I can ACTUALLY play rather than a statue that I'll end up giving to my 10 year old nephew.
@ Logicwins I like collecting video game stuff, its a personal hobby. I have an Altair and Ezio Statue from both of the games Ce's. Connor will be a nice addition to my collection. But hey, you want to buy the standard edition and thats fine. I just like cool stuff
Me too, that statue looks nice!
Im not getting any edition because im completely uninterested by this game.
Ah the "Lame-O Edition". niiiice.
Then why the hell did you even click on the story
Clicked on it to see the contents. And yes the lameo-edition, I think the setting and story sound uninteresting
@omi um...then why post anything here?
LOL, notice how you don't get all 3 extra single player missions no matter what edition you buy. If you buy the Special Edition, you get "A Dangerous Secret" If you buy the Join or Die Edition, you get "A Living War"...but not "A Dangerous Secret" If you buy the Freedom Edition, you STILL don't get "A Dangerous Secret"...but you get "The Living War" and "Lost Mayan ruins". Well played Ubi...well played indeed.
Wait for the complete edition in a few months after release.
@ironfist92 What im doing with Revelations
Ubisoft region locks content in special editions, so different countries get different dlcs that will not be available for other countries until a later date, its been done for previous collectors edition dlc for Assassins Creed games, with europe usually getting more than in the NA. Ex brotherhood: US: Jack in the box + Harlequinn+Single player mission Eu: Animus Edition + Harlequinn+Crusader+ Single player missions Revelations US: singature edition with dlc Eu: 3+ editions with various dlc Most of the content is specialized for different parts of Europe. Which is why they have 3 editions The Us one will most likely be the freedom edition
Which also equates to three separate pieces of substantial Day 1 DLC for.
In Australia we're getting Ghost of War and Lost Mayan Ruins. No mention of A Dangerous Secret.
Already got mah Steelbook, NORMAL EDITION FTW!
Same here! I'm looking really forward to playing this game!
I find it a little odd that these have not [yet] been announced for, you know..... America.
Well Ubisoft is based in europe, so it makes a bit more sense. But, yeah see what you did there
i thought it was in quebec? or at least i thought it was based on one of the prince of persia games development anyways oh well this i didnt know
Not everything on the internet is about, you know... America. Edit: A crap load of "Disagree" is incoming..
well figuring that mostly europe got the better special editions for previous games, cause they were set in europe. being that this game is based in america im pretty sure its all about, you know... America
the franchise sold petty much the same in europe , the publisher is mostly european , the game's heme is just a theme , and they probably gotta figure some annoying Gamestop or Best buy exclusive deal as usual , so no ... you can just wait a little , for a change
Got announced in Australia today. http://www.ausgamers.com/pr... Looks like this editions are exclusive to just about everywhere but America. Be strange if you guys didn't get the same editions or better considering the size of your market.
All I would like is the game and the "special extra missions" and that is it.
US had better get a good Collector's Edition like this for the last game in the trilogy :(
"...last game in the trilogy." LOL, that's a good one. Assassin's Creed III:Bro Team! followed by Assassin's Creed III:Team Bro! finally Assassin's Creed III: ! ! ! *grasps his copy of the original Assassin's Creed, in a fetal position, naked, under a cold shower* ;p
*grasps his copy of the original Assassin's Creed, in a fetal position, naked, under a cold shower* AHAHAHAHAHA!
Being that this is set in the U.S.A. we better get the collectors edition here...fingers crossed!!!
Got to hand it to Ubisoft they know how to make Collectors Editions Although I'm a bit annoyed that Medallion dosen't come with the Freedom Edition aswell as the statue. Not to sound greedy but I mean we are paying for a higher price CE least they could do is throw everything from the low two CE in there aswell.
I have the Freedom edition pre-ordered already.
If your from Europe or the UK where did you pre order it from....I can't find it anywhere EDIT: Thank You :)
The Freedom Edition in the UK http://www.gamestop.co.uk/4... Join or Die Edition http://www.play.com/Games/P... Ireland Freedom edition http://www.gamestop.ie/4329...
Wow that's expensive. Although if I remember correctly (at least in Ireland) the AC:R CE decreased in price around a week before release so maybe this might too. Thanks for the links by the way.
I would watch it though don't want to wait then see it go out of stock. It dosen't happen to all games but expect the unexpected. I thought Resistance 3s survival edition was going to be around a while then when I went to pre order it I was too late.....luckly someone cancelled their pre order and I finally got it. Since it's AC3 and how popular AC has become I would think theres more of a chance people will buy it.
Looks like I'll be getting the Join or Die Edition. Freedom will probably cost $150 Join or Die will probably cost $100.
Are you in NZ?
Kinda reminds me of the Black Edition and the White Edition of Assassins Creed 2. One more expensive than the other, one had slightly more DLC than the other, but both had different collectable contents. Different figures etc.
3 different editions (plus standard, I guess)? WTF...? As if splitting content wasn't enough...
The Freedom Edition
I'll get the Gamefly Rental Edition.
I already have the white steel book case for AC3. I got it from Gamefly for pre-ordering the standard edition of the game. :D
I wonder if the wii u will get any special editions? or are ubi gonna use the old trick "the unique controller with its own map screen will be your special extra" ?
The Free edition for me.
I'll take the one with the COIN EDITION looks so awesome
