You’ll want the Assassin’s Creed Freedom Edition

2 min read


There are quite a few editions of Assassin’s Creed 3 available – from the straight up Vanilla edition all the way to an exclusive one that you can only get from Ubiworkshop. We’ll be getting 3 versions of the game – including the Freedom Edition; the one with the fancy shmancy Connor figurine. Ubisoft’s done an unboxing – and you’re going to want it.

Assassin’s Creed III comes to stab the British on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October, alongside the PlayStation Vita tie-in Liberation. The PC version is expected before Christmas- and it’ll be on the Wii U too.  Check out the unboxing – and if you want one (and you do!) make sure to order soon. A little squirrel’s told me stock of the Freedom Edition is pretty limited.

The Freedom Edition includes:

  • A 24cm high quality figurine of Connor
  • A steelbook case art drawn by awards-winning comic artist Alex Ross
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution.
  • One exclusive Lithograph
  • In-game bonus content:
    • Single Player Mission: Lost Mayan Ruins
      Connor’s mission leads him in an old Mayan pyramid, full of mysteries and revelations. Unlock Captain Kidd’s fabled cutlass, a deadly, brutal and beautiful piece of steel.
    • Single Player Mission: Ghost of War
      The tide of the Revolution turns into the Templars favour. Defeat your enemies and  unlock The Pontiac’s War Club, a powerful Native American weapon.
    • The Sharpshooter Multiplayer Package
      Unleash the Sharpshooter fury in multiplayer with 1 new character, the Sharpshooter, 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, 1 special Picture and the Title of "The Jester".

It won’t be a Long Walk to the Freedom Edition; it’s available right now from BT Games, Kalahari and Takealot.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
