‘Assassin’s Creed III’ Celebrates its Independence… From Not Having a Limited Edition

The next tale in the battle between the Assassins and Templars will get special editions in two flavors: one for consoles and a digital edition for PC folk.

Details after the jump.

It’s the split between content and thing depending on which platform you decide to purchase Assassin’s Creed III for. On the PC side, Ubisoft is offering additional mission content, multiplayer costumes, and a sampling of the soundtrack. Meanwhile, on the console side, you can get a statue and a belt. It’s really about where your priorities lie.

Here’s the full rundown on the 360 and PS3 Limited Edition, which will retail for $119.99:

Assassin’s Creed III video game.
Stunning 9.44″ Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade.
Embroidered 28″x48″ Assassin’s Creed-inspired colonial flag.
3″x3.25″ sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins.

Please note, no one will say a word if you decide to accessorize your belt with the ACII Ezio blade replica being offered up by Gamestop.

On the PC side, you can grab the Digital Deluxe Edition for $69.99 and get the following:

Assassin’s Creed III video game.
George Washington’s notebook revealing his true story during the American Revolution.
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.
A collection of the best audio tracks from previous Assassin’s Creed games.

I demand that in future multiplayer DLC we get a George Washington skin. I demand it, Ubisoft!

Assassin’s Creed III will be available October 30th in the United States and Latin America for the PS3, 360, and PC.
