Assassin's Creed II "Master" Edition Only At GameStop
GameStop has been making some big moves as of late, and that includes a major revamping of their rewards system (TBA), and gaining exclusive rights to certain Collectors Editions of games.
If you want to snag the very cool Assassin's Creed II Limited Edition: Master Assassin's Edition, you'll have no choice but to either visit your local GameStop or order from their online store. It's coming for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and will hold a retail price of $79.99; one local GameStop here has confirmed this, and adds that there are a "set number" of these special editions available. Therefore, we suggest you move quickly. Here's what you'll get in the box when you open 'er up:
- Ezio collectable statue (8.5 inches tall)
- Two exclusive in-game maps- Palazzo Medici – Pre-Order Unlockable Map, and the Santa Maria Dei Frari – Limited Edition Exclusive
- The Art of Assassin’s Creed II hard-covered art book
- Additional Bonus Disc that includes a Behind the scenes of Assassin’s Creed II, and the Assassin’s Creed II soundtrack
- Premium Collectable Tin
There are a whole lot of big special editions heading our way this fall, so it's very likely that you'll have to be selective. You probably want at least one of them, so perhaps it's best to play the "more bang for your buck" game. When you do that, you have to admit that getting the above goodies for an extra $20 doesn't seem like too bad of a deal...especially considering the price of other game packages ('cough' Activision 'cough').
