Assassin's Creed 3 will have not one, not two, but three Collector's Editions of Assassin's Creed 3, the "Freedom Edition", the "Join or Die Edition", and the basic "Special Edition".


The premium edition, the Freedom Edition, will cost 79.99 on consoles and 59.99 on PC, and will include:

* A 9-inch Connor figurine
* Steelbook case
* George Washington's notebook
* Exclusive lithograph
* "Lost Mayan Ruins" single-player mission involving exploration of a Mayan pyramid and Captain Kidd's cutlass
* "Ghost of War" single-player mission including Pontiac's War Club weapon
* "Sharpshooter" multiplayer package including a new character, Sharpshooter weapon, one relic, one emblem, one special picture and "The Jester" title



The Join or Die Edition will just include the Ghost of War mission, Sharpshooter multiplayer package and George Washington's notebook. It will also have different packaging and an Assassin's medallion. It'll cost 64.99 on consoles and 34.99 on PC.

The Special Edition will just include an exclusive single-player mission called "A Dangerous Secret," which according to UbiSoft will see Connor "fight against a secret that could jeopardize the funding of the revolution" and offer the opportunity to unlock an exclusive Flintlock Musket.

American gamers need not fret - US versions of the Special Editions are reportedly on the way as well.

It seems a little maddening that each of the editions have unique items, so buying, say, the Freedom Edition won't allow the player to have the Medallion. Let us know what you think.

I'll take the Join or Die edition. Don't need the statue, like the steelbox art, and I want that MEDALLION. :p

I think it is stupid that if you pay for the 'collectors' edition of a game you don't get everything on offer. What is the point? I want to pay the extra money as a fan of the series and get everything that is on offer. Not have to pick and choose. Ubisoft needs to work its shit out. Go back to the days where you either got a basic copy of the game or you went the extra mile and got the limited edition one. I WANT A STATUE AND A MEDALLION WHY IS THAT SO HARD?!
