Ubisoft has lifted the lid on a Limited Edition version of Assassin’s Creed III for North America and Latin America.

Due for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 30, the $119.99 Limited Edition includes “essential items” for consumers to “ignite the American Revolution,” including:

  • Assassin’s Creed III video game.
  • Stunning 9.44″ Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade.
  • Embroidered 28″x48″ Assassin’s Creed-inspired colonial flag.
  • 3″x3.25″ sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins.

The Limited Edition is available for pre-order today at GameStop,, Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart.

PC owners will get their own Digital Deluxe Edition. For $64.99, it includes:

  • Assassin’s Creed III video game.
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing his true story during the American Revolution.
  • Three single-player missions taking players from the high seas to Cozumel Island in search of Captain Kidd’s fabled lost treasure.
  • The Captain of the Aquila’s uniform and traditional Colonial Assassin outfit, boarding axe and Scottish flintlock – rumored to have fired “the shot heard round the world” – for use in the single-player campaign.
  • Sharpshooter and Redcoat characters for use in multiplayer.

    How many special editions are there for this game?:I

  • kmacd92

    Looks like I’m going to have to order this edition as well as the Freedom Edition I’ve already had on pre-order for a few months. And seeing as I ordered it for PC I’ve got to wait basically another month to play it anyway seeing as ubisoft seems to hate pc gamers

    At least I know for certain I’ll have the money to buy it as I recently got a job :)

    I’ll have to pass on this. That Ni no Kuni LE has used up my one LE purchase for the year.

    The Limited Edition is starting to properly show up for each of the stores listed in the article.

    The major difference between each one is the preorder dlc you get. For example, Amazon has the Boarding Axe single-player weapon and The Captain Of The Aquila single-player character. (Picture below.)

    If you purchase the PC Digital Deluxe Edition, I think you get all the DLC.
