Ubisoft Lets the Watch Dogs Limited Edition Off the Leash

WatchDogs_LimitedEdition

Looks like Assassin’s Creed IV is isn’t the only Ubisoft game coming out this holiday season with a pricey collector’s edition.

Identically priced at $129.99, the Watch Dogs Limited Edition, available for pre-order now exclusively in North America, includes:

• Watch Dogs video game

• 9″ statue of Aiden Pearce prominently showing his deadliest weapon – his smartphone

• Aiden Pearce’s iconic vigilante mask

• Collectible SteelBook™ game case featuring DedSec art

• Official soundtrack with an original score by pioneering composer Brian Reitzell, whose work includes the films The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, and the video game Red Faction: Armageddon. His recent projects – Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and the hit NBC thriller Hannibal – are earning critical acclaim, reaffirming Reitzell’s status as one of the industry’s top composers.

• Deluxe hardcover art book with 80 pages of concept art

Sadly it appears that Wii U gamers won’t have the limited edition as an option. Ubisoft–and retailer listings I’ve checked–only show the collector’s set available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
