Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is getting not one but two Collector’s Edition and the details of what people can expect inside each one has been revealed today by Ubisoft and it looks like they will be value for money. First up for you to desire is the simply named “Collector’s Edition” which contains a 50-page artbook, the game’s soundtrack and a copy of animated movie Assassin’s Creed: Embers which expands on the tale of franchise protagonist Ezio Auditore. “Is that all?” I hear you ask. No it isn’t as you get some additional in-game content, two additional multiplayer characters – the Ottoman Jester and The Crusader – and access to the prison of Vlad the Impaler, where you’ll be able to acquire a new close-quarters dagger.
The Animus Edition is the other special edition and includes an in-depth franchise encyclopedia, a copy of Embers, the additional in-game content mentioned above. Also, you’ll get capacity upgrades for your hidden gun bullets, bombs and crossbow arrows; and the Armour of Brutus from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Now they are two very good Collector’s Editions for you to choose from and it seems Ubisoft have decided to spoil fans of the Assassin’s Creed series and I can’t honestly say which version will be more popular but I will say that if I was going to get one then it would be the “Collector’s Edition”.
The Collector’s Edition will cost £59.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with The Animus Edition costing £68.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is due out on 15th November.
