Assassin's Creed Collectors Edition Detailed
It seems as if all the big-name titles for this year will have a special edition of some kind, and Ubisoft's highly anticipated Assassin's Creed is no exception. We learned of this expanded Collectors set some time ago, but now we've got the first image (shown here) and the concrete details.
If you're willing to part with the extra $10 - standard retail for editions like this is $69.99 - you will receive a bunch of goodies in addition to the actual game. Inside this package are some Penny Arcade comics (some of the funniest stuff online), a mini-strategy guide, a small Altair figure, and of course, the requisite "Making Of" documentaries on a second disc. If that little guide is worthwhile, this edition might actually save you money, considering the full strategy guide will probably retail for $20.
Assassin's Creed will arrive this fall, and besides the amazing next-generation visuals we've seen from trailers, the game also boasts inventive game design and supposedly unparalleled physics and technology. We're anxiously awaiting this potential blockbuster, and now, fans have their Collectors option. C'mon, you know you want it...
