Celebrate Independence Day, Assassin’s Creed III Style


Happy Fourth of July! Let me steal a moment away from your day full of cookouts, family gatherings, and fireworks to bring you an update from the world of Assassin’s Creed. Hurray for new trailers, Limited Edition details and PC digital download sales!

With AC3 taking place during the American Revolution, Ubisoft has gone all out to promote the game on this fine Independence Day, releasing a “4th of July” gameplay trailer and a live-action commercial celebrating the spirit of American independence.

Now that you’re feeling all patriotic, pop over to your favorite game retailer (GameStop, Amazon.com, Best Buy, Target or Wal-Mart) to pre-order the newly announced North and Latin American Assassin’s Creed III Limited Edition. This LE sure is pricey at $120, but it does come with some cool goods, including a 9.44″ statue of new assassin Connor, a metal belt buckle, and an embroidered 28″x48″ colonial flag marked with the Assassin’s Crest. Retailer-exclusive DLC items are also included.


For PC gamers, Ubisoft is offering a $65 Digital Deluxe Edition featuring a PDF file of George Washington’s notebook revealing details about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution, three bonus single-player missions, Captain of the Aquila and Colonial Assassin character skins and weapons, Redcoat and Sharpshooter multiplayer characters, and a soundtrack sampler compiling tracks from all previous Assassin’s Creed titles.

Oh, and one last thing: the UBIShop has a sale running through July 8th on all digital downloads of Assassin’s Creed PC titles, including a complete bundle with AC Director’s Cut, AC2 Deluxe Edition, Brotherhood Deluxe Edition and Revelations with all DLC for only $65.
