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.
