Price for Assassin’s Creed 3 Freedom Edition isn’t cheap

Special editions for games has become the normal trend as of late, but considering that gamers are only usually treated to one special version of a game upon release, you’ll be surprised and delighted to hear that Ubisoft are making no fewer than three premium editions of Assassin’s Creed 3 available.

The game is due out in October on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, with a Nintendo Wii U version also confirmed to be in the pipeline. It looks like you’re in for a difficult decision to make though, as Ubisoft has offered up some tasty goodies for hardcore fans who are looking for that little bit extra.

Aside from the standard Assassin’s Creed 3 retail version, you’ll also be able to pick up a Special Edition, a Join or Die Edition and the most premium of all, the Freedom Edition. The Special Edition contains an extra single-player mission on top of the standard edition, while the Join or Die version contains an Assassin’s Creed medallion, a George Washington notebook, one extra single-player mission and also one multiplayer package called The Sharpshooter which grants you a special in-game title.

Finally, the Freedom Edition is the best of the lot and like the limited edition of Skyrim, you’ll get a high quality figurine for your money – this one being a 24cm model of main protagonist Connor. Aside from all of the goodies featured in the Join or Die edition, you’ll also get a steel book case art, a lithograph and an extra single-player mission on top, so two in total.

There’s no official pricing yet for the three packs as they will vary depending on retailers, but we have already noticed that some retailers already have a few listings online. UK retailer Play has put up a £57.99 price for the Join or Die edition of the game, while EB Games in Australia are claiming that they have an ‘exclusive’ on the Freedom edition and that you’ll have to pay $128 for it. Check the respective links for full details on both.

Will you be forking out for the Freedom edition to get that figurine of Connor for your collection? $128 is a lot of money for some though, so let us know which version you are intending to get. It may be worth holding out a while before you pre-order as better deals will probably become available in the weeks to come.

I gotta say… Not really a fan of the figurines, what do they do other than clutter up your shelves or bedside. But I am liking the look of the Mayan mission… not sure if to save £10 on the J or D edition or just go all out out for the Freedom….
I’ll make up my mind when it comes to around… September-ish

It may be a high price but it will be worth if your a true AC fan

Robert Owen Charles Crozier

ya, probably not, considering it comes with more useless things then the join or die edition, considering noone really knows how good the game is $130 is pretty rediculous,

It would be nice if, unlike AC Revelation’s, American’s get to waste their money on the ACIII Special Edition’s.

most likely freedom edition. $128 may be a bit of money but its worth it for AC

Instead of $128, can’t I just be eternally vigilant?
