New Assassin's Creed 2 "White Edition" Spotted
Oh look...another Collectors Edition. It hasn't been officially revealed for North America yet, but we figure that announcement isn't far off.
Spotted over at European site 9Lives, it's the special edition for Assassin's Creed II, which is one of our most anticipated titles of 2009. This one is the "White Edition" - the "Black" edition is something else - and it features the Ezio figurine in his white assassin's costume, plus a bonus mission for the game. So this apparently means we'll have a choice between the Black and White Editions of the game, and there's some question as to the price-
"Moreover, you get the White Edition for the price of the ordinary game when you have your pre-orders."
It's a broken translation but we interpret this as meaning that if you pre-order the White Edition, it'll somehow cost the same amount as the standard game. We find this a little difficult to believe, but it's an excellent incentive to drive up pre-orders; if it doesn't cost anything more, then why pass on it? What are you going to use as an excuse? No storage room? We'll bring you more information on both these special editions, and the price details as well. We can't wait to step into the shoes of Ezio!
