Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will indeed get a Limited Edition, but so far there doesn’t appear to be any fancy Ezio or even one of the other new Assassins figurine included.
What is certain is that it will be released in Australia exclusively by EB Games for AUD$148. If you are an Assassin’s Creed collector like me (see my collection here) you’ll be excited we get to buy it locally.
I’m not a big fan of ‘exclusive’ Limited Editions for certain stores, but at least with online ordering these days even if you don’t live near a certain games retailer you can probably buy from one’s website. The lack of competition means paying full RRP though, and $148 ain’t cheap.
Though the limited edition doesn’t seem to include a figurine (here’s hoping it does and that it’s not been revealed yet), it does include a lot of stuff including collector cards, the Lineage Mini-Movie (which you already can download on the PS3 or 360 but might want a hard copy), extra maps and characters, codex with some Assassins art and history, and a cool box.
The game itself is looking fantastic with the E3 video showing your home town being attacked and destroyed, your uncle being killed (first Dad, now your new father figure is killed by the nasty Templars!), and you getting to fire cannons, which was featured in the Battle of Forli section of the Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance book (as mentioned in my book review here) but strangely not the downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed 2.
Riding horses through the streets, firing cannons, long barreled guns now being shot at you, duels galore…it all adds up to a bigger action focus over stealth, but should be a lot of fun come November.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood – Limited Codex Edition (at this stage) Includes:
- Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood game
- Renaissance Collector Chest
- Exclusive Codex
- Map of Rome
- Multiplayer characters cards
- Bonus DVD and game soundtrack
- 2 Exclusive single player maps: Aqua Gear & Trajan Market
