You know how I feel about 'Collector's Editions' - I have enough junk gathering dust in my house - but with Assassin's Creed I'm prepared to make an exception. Mostly because I like the game but also because I'm a hypocrite. We now have details on the Assassin's Creed: Revelations Collector's Edition and a spiffing 'Animus Edition'.
The Collector's Edition features:
- A 50 Page Artbook - Assassin's Creed: Revelations Soundtrack - A copy of the animated movie Assassin's Creed: Embers
The Animus Edition features...
- An Assassin's Creed Encyclopaedia - Assassin's Creed: Revelations Soundtrack - A copy of the animated movie Assassin's Creed: Embers
There are also in game extras. Those with the Collector's Edition receive the Ottoman Jester and The Crusader as multiplayer characters, and access to Vlad the Impaler's prison. Those with the Animus Edition get that plus capacity upgrades to your bombs, arrows, etc.
So to recap, boo to in-game upgrades, but a polite nod to cool art books and Assassin's Creed Encyclopaedias.
As soon as we have Australian pricing for these new editions we'll let you know.
