Assassin's Creed III - Freedom Edition! ...Whats up with that?

#1 Edited by Rekt_Hed (833 posts) -

I'm a fan of many collector editions and I know some of you duders are as well but cant make my mind up about this one.

Why is this only a mainly Europe release? I mean I know Ubisoft is mainly french (from what Ive seen of the interview videos) but you'd think they would be shipping other places as well.

Anyways whats ur thoughts duders!?

Anyone splashing out on this thing or just going for the standard version? After the sour taste of revelations I'm finding it really hard to get excited about this game at all :/

I don't know why they do it but Ubisoft has put out Euorpe-only limited editions for awhie.

They are releasing it in Australia as well. It looks pretty awesome, but I won't be getting AC3 for a while. (Too many games to play already)

Standard edition for me I don't care too much for figures the notebook would be the only thing that would draw my attention also this game was made by the main team who made AC2 and from the looks of it it'll be just as big is not bigger than AC2 and will wrap up the plot of Desmond , I'm pretty sure we're gonna play as Desmond in modern times.

Holy shit.....is that Madison Square Garden? It's implied heavily that Desmond landed in New York during the plot of Revelations? So is Desmond just catching an MMA match or is he there for something else?

@jerseyscum: I belive that's in either Brazil or Portugal, the scoreboard is written in portuguese that or he's just watching a match between 2 Brazilian MMA fighters, though he's probably there to do some stabbing.

No idea why the U.S. version isn't called that. Weird.

Should just release the same editions to all regions.

I got the Limited Edition AC3 for Ps3. I mainly got it because I like to spoil myself way to much and I really liked the flag that comes with it. That picture by the way had a big mystery behind it in a literal sense where it leads you to places on the internet to find a code and see what it says. I'm not sure if some of you guys knew that or not, so I'm just throwing it out there.

Does anyone know if the US limited edition comes with the steelebook? I have it pre-ordered and I already have the steelbook from back in march.

Is this not coming to the US? Considering the content of the game and the fact that it is called the "freedom edition" it would look to be a perfect fit.

He has to dive down and assassinate one of the fighters, throws a hidden dagger gauntlet to the other fighter, and tells him to come with him to fight with his brothers.

Seems strange considering American patriotism doesn't sit too well in Europe.

Nice to know they've definitely dropped all pretences that you don't take sides.

Pay extra for a bunch of junk that will do nothing but take up space? No thanks.

I've seen gameplay where Connor kills some Americans so I think will probably involve at least a few British allies. Hopefully.
