The Join or Die Edition seems to be a slightly smaller package which replace the statue with a “Join or Die” medallion. It also lacks the SteelBook and some of the DLC Content.

The Freedom Edition has an RRP of £80 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP of £60 for PC, the Join or Die Edition has an RRP of £65 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP of £50 for PC.

Not So Special Edition: Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood

December 21st, 2010 Michael Pica

Those who purchased the Codex Edition of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood have just lost a little something that makes that release special. Ubisoft announced that they will be offering “The Trajan Market” content free to uPlay members; which is pretty much anyone with a Ubisoft game released in the last year and an internet connection.

While the Codex Edition still has a lot more going for it in terms of collector’s appeal, it’s always disheartening when you spend the extra money up front for bonus content only to have it given away to everyone after the fact.

I will say that I do like the uPlay feature, if you haven’t signed up, it’s worth doing so. Basically you get to spend your achievement points on additional content. Of course this announcement comes after i just blew all of my U points on some new Multiplayer characters and costumes for Ezio last night.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood LE for North America

August 10th, 2010 Michael Pica

While those in Europe were already granted a CE release for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, those of us in North America were left out in the cold… until now.

A Limited Edition of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood has been announced for North America and is quite different from the CE that Europe is receiving.

Included is the typical bonus disc with behind the scenes content, an artbook, a fancy case, and the always welcome physical game map, but the real treat is the included jack-in-the-box featuring a character from the game.

The interesting thing here is that there are different jack-in-the-box characters depending on where you buy your LE. GameStop will be selling them with the Harlequin character while all other retailers will have the Doctor.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Limited Edition will be released on November 16th for 360, PS3, and PC at a price of about $100.

ACII “Complete Edition”

May 19th, 2010 Michael Pica

It seems several UK retailers are listing an Assassin’s Creed II Complete Edition for release on June 4th. What makes it “Complete” is apparently the inclusion of the two DLC packs and the secret location that were previously only available to Uplay subscribers.

I’m guessing this is probably the same thing as the previously rumored “Game of the Year” Edition.
