Assassins Creed III Limited Edition announced

As Fourth of July approaches it is only fitting that Ubisoft has announced a limited edition of Assassins Creed III for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This version of the game will be exclusive to North America and Latin America and will cost $119.99.

So what does your $119.99 get you? You will get the game of course as well as a statue of Connor, an Assassin’s inspired colonial flag and a belt buckle in case you want the world to know about your Assassin lineage. Pre-orders start right now from GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart.

PC gamers feeling left out of the limited edition love will have an edition to call their own.  The Assassin’s Creed III Digital Deluxe Edition was also announced today and can be pre-ordered from the UBIShop. This edition of the game includes George Washington’s Notebook “reveling his true story”, 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 and a collection of the best audio tracks from previous Assassin’s Creed games.

Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30.
