assassin's IV figureWith Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag details beginning to flow from a trickle to a stream, we have just learned that there will once again be multiple new versions of the franchise’s latest game sold: the Black Chest Edition, the Buccaneer Edition, the Skull Edition, and the Special Edition.

With so many editions, how will you decide which to purchase?  The content involved?  The price tag?  Is it just getting too confusing?

The Watch

AC4-Figurine_SS(1)Not only that, but those who pre-order will also get a unique activation code which will be provided via retail, online stores or Uplay, granting access to the Assassin’s Creed VIP program: THE WATCH.

The unique activation code will be given to customers on a physical Treasure Map (until stocks last) that will be distributed through EB Games, JB Hifi, UPlay and Mighty Ape.

THE WATCH offers unique content that goes deeper into the Assassin’s Creed Universe, granting exclusive access to additional information, bonus content, rewards and the opportunity to take part in an exclusive quest designed specifically for VIP members.

Customers who register for THE WATCH will become a member of a select community of Assassin’s Creed fans who can participate in online discussions, upload their own content and compare their skills and achievements!

Finally, you can also purchase a figurine of Edward Kenway, the pirate protagonist of the the newest Assassin’s Creed game on Uplay.  If you add that to the other 2, that’s 3 different figures of Edward.
