“Assassin’s Creed 3” collector’s edition announced

GameStop has officially announced that there will be an “Assassins Creed 3” Collector’s edition for North America. I know I am not the only one who saw the collector’s edition for other regions and got just a wee bit jealous. Well now that jealousy can be put to rest! This looks like it will be one amazing set for any fan of the series.

I don’t know about you but I am mostly looking forward to owning the Connor statue and the Colonial Flag replica. This set is the perfect compliment for those of you who already have your AC3 steel case with that beautiful art done by the man himself, Alex Ross. I hope my fellow Angry Webbers are as excited for this as I am.

The collector’s edition includes:

  • 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.

The AC3 collector’s edition will retail for $120 and will be available at launch.
