Xbox One With Assassin's Creed Unity Design From Walking Dead Artist Up for Grabs

Those who preorder Unity have a chance to win an "extremely limited" Xbox One system.

The "extremely limited" Assassin's Creed Unity-skinned Xbox One system you see above can't be found in stores, but it can be yours with a little luck.

The system features the Assassin's Creed logo on the front of the system, and artwork from comic book artist Tony Moore (known for early issues of The Walking Dead, among other things) on the top. "Very few" of these have been created, according to the official Assassin's Creed Facebook page, and there is only one way to get your hands on one: the Guillotine Prize Drop wheel.

Among the things you get for preordering Unity (see a full list here) is access to an online spin-to-win game. Every Friday, a variety of prizes (most of them Assassin's Creed-themed) are given away to winners of what amounts to a web-based slot machine. Other prizes include home entertainment systems, trips to Unity developer Ubisoft Montreal, and in-game items. To play--you can do so here--all you need is a Uplay account and an access code given away with preorders of Unity.

Assassin's Creed Unity launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 28. A new Assassin's Creed game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 has not yet been announced, but Ubisoft has indicated we'll be learning more about its plans for those platforms soon.

Microsoft recently revealed a number of one-of-a-kind Xbox One system designs as part of a San Diego Comic-Con giveaway. Most of these designs were based on games available on Xbox One, but Unity was not among them.

If you haven't already preordered Unity, is the prospect of winning this system enough of an incentive to convince you to do so? Let us know in the comments.

It's funny how people were talking sh.it about the current gen console designs when they launched, but the simple designs are better suited for custom work. The PS4 and X1 are basically blank canvases just asking for some artistic love.

Great, Those limited edition consoles start to show up only after a year of a system's launch. When do I learn not to buy a system on launch? Have you seen the Forza Horizon 2 limited edition? It's sick!

With all these custom paint jobs  MS should have just made the system so you can take the faceplate and top panel off.

Moore is co-author of the comic not just the penciller.

I preordered through a 3rd party retailer. Can I still get a code?

Not usually a fan of consoles with designs of games on them, but this one is actually pretty damm cool.

I really like that - if they ditched the "assassin's creed unity" lettering and just let the imagery stand by itself it would be totally bad@ss.

Pretty weird, who would pre-order a game for a console they do not own, hoping to win that console.
Or you already own one and then win another? I suppose you could sell one of your consoles....
Seems like a poorly thought out prize to me, at least in this context.

Ugly.  What happen to the good looking painted or modded console exterior?

I got to admit, that is really really cool looking Xbox One limited edition but for the actual AC game, Black Flag was fun but at this point, I'm all AC burn out so I'm skipping Unity.

@xhawk27 Yes I am hating right now because I can't buy another X1 since I already own one

@DrKill09 They're not talking about a VCR they're talking about XBox......oh wait, I get it, you are trying to make a joke that's been made 10000 times and be funny. No thanks. I like my jokes fresh.
