Just in time for the fourth of July, Ubisoft has announced the limited editions for the newest iteration of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Set in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III will follow English and Native-American protagonist Connor “Ratonhnhaké:ton” Kenway as he joins the battle for justice between the Americans and the British, as well as the Assassins and the Templars.

The physical limited edition will include appropriately colonial-themed goods. If you’re willing to shell out the extra cash, the physical edition will be coming to retailers, such as Gamestop,, Best Buy, Target, and Wal-Mart, in North American and Latin America—sorry Europe—for $119.99. The box set includes a 9.44” statue of the game’s protagonist, a metal belt buckle that will presumably have the Assassin’s logo on it, and a 28”x48” colonial flag with the Assassins’ logo in the middle of the stars. While the statue and belt buckle are more of the standard loot that we’ve come to expect from box sets in the past few years, the flag seems to be a fairly neat addition, especially if you are a giant nerd for real world connections to in-game lore like me.

If you’d rather not shell out the extra cash, a digital deluxe edition will be available for purchase from various digital retailers for $64.99 that includes three additional single-player missions, two extra outfits for use in single-player, two new characters for multiplayer and a downloadable soundtrack. There will also be new story content revealing George Washington’s “true” story during the American Revolution. If you’re a sucker for extra in-game content, and the box-set seems too pricey, the digital deluxe edition may be your best bet.

Both editions are available for pre-order now, so if you’re interested hop on over to your favorite retailer’s website and toss an order for one of the editions before they run out. For those of us who would prefer to hold on to our pay-checks and experience the vanilla game, Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30th for $59.99.

    I think you made a type-o. The LE is $119.99, not $199.99.

    Thanks Matt, the typo has been fixed!
