May 21, 2007 - IGN has learned that Ubisoft will announce tomorrow the release of an all-new "limited edition" version of Assassin's Creed. Scheduled for shipment "later this year," Assassin's Creed Limited Edition will be distributed in much lower quantities than the regular SKU (hence the "limited" moniker and not a "special" one).
Though the limited edition's gameplay content will be identical to that of the standard version, Assassin's Creed LE will boast a number of bonus supplemental content items. In addition to a specialized tin packaging, the game will also include a figurine of lead character Altair, Penny Arcade comics, a miniature strategy guide, and Assassin-themed short films. Behind-the-scenes videos, official trailers, developer diaries, producer interviews and other unnamed goodies are also planned.
Sometimes, pre-order lines can get to a man...
Assassin's Creed Limited Edition, release date unknown, will retail for $69.99 (US) and be available for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The standard version will ship at $59.99.
