Looks like the two editions of AC3 will have different things though... which kind of sucks if you want to collect or something. You know, for the collector's out there...

No surprise that we're getting a AC3 CE. Though, looks like they're going the Gears of War 3 or Halo (insert release # here) route with standard/LE/CE versions.

I guess "Join or Die" edition will be the LE, and it'll be in the $80-$100 range, and the "Freedom" edition will be the CE and be in the $130-$150 range. I do wonder if the Assassins' medallion in the "Join or Die" version is included in the "Freedom" edition, like the Gears Of War 3 COGs.


This was a European announcement only. While it is very likely there will be one or more US collector's editions, it is not certain that they will be similar to what is pictured here. In fact, Europe has always gotten very different ce's of this series than we have received.

I got an e-mail from the NISA Online Store letting me know about the Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland - Limited Edition: Grand Finale Set (PS3). Wow, that is one long title! It is a NISA Online Store exclusive and comes with free standard shipping. Information about this limited edition has been added to the OP.

EU Ass Creed LEs are always always ALWAYS better than ours. Seeing how awesome this one is only sets me up for the disappointment that will be ours.

Zavvi's packaging for this kind of stuff makes me shudder.

Hell any retailer from the UK's packaging makes me #-o

At least with my buddy I know he will pad it in a damned box so the potential for damage is much much less.

I hope the US versions will be more physical than the last iteration of the series (i.e. Revelation's DLC oriented signature edition).

Strange, both Zavvi and hmv have the Join or Die Editions up for pre-order (along with standard), but neither one have the Freedom Edition listed yet. FWIW, hmv has the Join or Die set at 67.99 while Zavvi has it at 56.85 (both prices in GBP obviously).

Added the Assassins creed III ce's mentioned earlier to the main post. It appears as of now the Freedom edition is Gamestop exclusive and the Join or die edition is just the regular US CE available everywhere. UK is getting a separate regular CE

The EU one is basically just a collectible case and 1 DLC, so the US wins on this CE

Thanks, I didn't know we were actually getting these CEs here, and it helps to know the Freedom Edition is GS-exclusive even though I'm probably just going to get the JoD Edition (I, like many others, already have the steelbook :razz:).

Where did you get this information? The only reference I see to Gamestop in relation to this CE is in the UK where Gamestop also operates. I don't believe any announcements have been made about collector's editions here yet.

My guess is the Freedom Edition will be a GS exclusive and Join or Die will only be available in the UK if previous releases tell us anything. Also lately Ubisoft and GS have been doing a lot of exclusive deals.

After looking at the picture again both pictures have ratings on it from EU region so who knows what the U.S. will get. I'm still guessing that like Revelations any special/limited/signature/collector's edition will be exclusive to Gamestop.

UPDATE: The Freedom Edition of Assassin's Creed 3 is a Gamestop exclusive, Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer. It features two different exclusive missions: the Templar-fighting Ghost of War level and Lost Mayan Ruins adventure, which award The Pontiac's War Club weapon and Captain Kidd's cutlass, among other bonuses.

The Prototype 2 Blackwatch artbook was disappointing. Really tiny and just a few pages of art with very light commentary scattered through. The soundtrack CD is ok. I like 7, 9 and 16. The large box they put it all in seems unnecessary.

Ok, fine, I'll remove the entire thing from the wiki. Feel free to post it back YOURSELF when/if it's updated as U.S

My apologies for trying to help out. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

Oh, don't be such a drama queen. It was a rather confusing post.

The Prototype 2 Blackwatch artbook was disappointing. Really tiny and just a few pages of art with very light commentary scattered through.

Yeah I can't stand those small hardcover artbooks, yet they seem to be the standard for CEs. I'd rather have a softcover artbook that's maybe a touch larger a la the Xenoblade artbook.
