THE BUZZ: Ubisoft has released the first details and images of three Assassin’s Creed III Collector’s Editions.

All three are exclusive to Europe, Middle East and Africa for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The Freedom Edition

  • Assassin’s Creed III retail game
  • A 24-cm high-quality figurine of Connor
  • A steelbook case art drawn by awards-winning comic artist Alex Ross
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution.
  • One exclusive Lithograph

2 in-game Single Player Missions:

  • Lost Mayan Ruins: Connor’s mission leads him in an old Mayan pyramid, full of mysteries and revelations. Players will be able to unlock Captain Kidd’s fabled cutlass, a deadly, brutal and beautiful piece of steel
  • Ghost of War: The tide of the Revolution turns into the Templars favor. Defeat your enemies and unlock The Pontiac’s War Club, a powerful Native American weapon.

1 in-game Multiplayer Package:

  • The Sharpshooter package: Unleash the Sharpshooter fury in multiplayer with 1 new character, the Sharpshooter, 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, 1 special Picture and the Title of “The Jester”.

The Join or Die Edition

  • Assassin’s Creed III retail game
  • The medallion of the Assassins with its high-quality curd ladle
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution.

1 in-game Single Player Mission:

  • Ghost of War: The tide of the Revolution turns into the Templars favor. Defeat your enemies and unlock The Pontiac’s War Club, a powerful Native American weapon.

1 in-game Multiplayer Package:

  • The Sharpshooter package: Unleash the Sharpshooter fury in multiplayer with 1 new character, the Sharpshooter, 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, 1 special Picture and the Title of “The Jester”.

The Special Edition

The Special Edition features a special packaging, the retail copy of the game and an exclusive single player mission:

  • A Dangerous Secret: Fight against a secret that could jeopardize the funding of the revolution. In case of success, you’ll be rewarded with an exclusive weapon: a Flintlock Musket.

EGM’s TAKE: That’s a lot of choice for just one game. U.S. fans need not worry as no doubt  region exclusive editions will be announced shortly. The Freedom Edition is certainly the one to go for, if you don’t mind spending a little more cash, a Conner statue, steelbook and George Washington’s notebook are more than enough to convince us. Not only that but you will also gain access to two single-player missions and a multiplayer pack. The only question we have is why doesn’t the best edition of the game get all of the extra in game content. That seems a little off. Still, if you’re going to splash out on one collector’s edition this year, we suggest you pick this one.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
