‘Assassin’s Creed III’ ‘Independence’ trailer and North American Limited Edition details


North American gamers (and non-gamers as well) are getting ready for the upcoming Fourth of July parties – and to kick off the celebration, Ubisoft is unleashing a wave of new independence-themed Assassin’s Creed III info.  To start us off, they have released the “Independence” trailer and continuing with a detailed breakdown of the North American Limited Edition, fans have a lot to celebrate.

Unlike the previous installments, the American Revolution setting hits closer to home than the typical Italy and Middle East backdrops.  However, this did stir up some controversy in the gaming world – but Ubisoft has assured us that despite Conner versus the Red Coats storyline, the game is not anti-British. What better way to prove the point than to show colonists getting blown to pieces by British soldiers while a young singer performs “Amazing Grace”?

As a result, the more intriguing of the pre-Fourth of July reveals is actually the North America Limited Edition that includes, in addition to a standard statue replica, a 24″ by 48″ Assassin-themed colonial American flag and belt buckle. The edition is only available for console players on the Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 3 and will retail for $119.99:

  • Assassin’s Creed III video game.
  • Stunning 9.44″ Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade.
  • Embroidered 28″x48″ Assassin’s Creed-inspired colonial flag.
  • 3″x3.25″ sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins.

As indicated, console exclusivity means bad news for swag-loving PC gamers – who, instead of the physical Limited Edition, will get a Digital Deluxe Edition (retailing for $64.99) that includes a number of in-game DLC add-ons and other all-digital bonuses:

  • Assassin’s Creed III video game.
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing the true story of the Assassins and the Templars 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
