Update 2: There's now another special edition which includes a figurine. It's called the Dawn of the Creed Collector's Edition (not to be confused with the Dawn of the Creed Legendary Edition), costs $160, and includes everything in the Gold Steelbook edition in addition to a 15-inch Bayek statuette.
Update: There's actually now a fifth special edition for the game, and this one's particularly limited, with only 999 being produced. It's priced at a whopping $800.
Original Story: Assassin's Creed: Origins was finally announced today, after about a year of leaks that hinted at its existence. And alongside a gameplay demo that showed off its setting in Egypt (that you can watch above), we now also know that it's getting a lot of special editions.
From a $70 Deluxe Edition to a $120 Collector's Edition, the game has a number of different versions and bonus content. We've put together a breakdown of all of the different editions.
- Preorder Bonus: Anyone who preorders any edition of the game will receive the Secrets of the First Pyramids mission.
- Deluxe Edition ($70): Includes the Ambush at Sea naval mission and the Desert Cobra Pack, which features the Eye of Apep staff, the Legendary Snake Shield, the Desert Cobra Outfit, the Fangs Horse Companion, the Fang Sickle Sword, and three ability points.
- Gold Edition ($110): Includes the Deluxe Edition content and the Season Pass.
- Gold Steelbook Edition ($110): Physical only and includes the Deluxe Edition Content, the Season Pass, and a Steelbook case. This is not available for PC.
- Gods Collector's Edition ($120): Physical only and includes an art book, a copy of the game's soundtrack, a 10-inch figurine of the game's main character Bayek, a physical copy of the game's map, and the Deluxe Edition content. This is not available for PC.
In addition, you can buy the Season Pass separately for $40. It comes with expansions and in-game items, although Ubisoft hasn't talked specifics yet. We were able to go hands-on with Assassin's Creed today, and you can check out our preview here.
