Assassin’s Creed Origins special editions & pre-order bonuses have been revealed at E3. This list gives you insight into what you can expect to get for your money once the game goes live on October 27, 2017. All editions have the game, while some of them offer special missions, the season pass, a new map and more. The prices of the special versions are something the avid players are familiar with already, and there are no surprises there.
AC Origins Pre-Order Bonus
If you pre-order Assassins Creed Origins, you’ll get an additional mission, called Secrets of the First Pyramids. Just like the names implies, this mission allows you to discover the secrets behind the construction of the first pyramids. It will also reveal the mysteries that lie within.
This bonus will be available in all editions. To make sure you’ll get it, you just need to buy the game before its launch.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Standard Edition
This is the $60 version. On top of the full game and the pre-order bonus, you can’t expect anything more. If you’ve bought some of Ubisoft’s games through their store, you can get a 20% discount for 100 club points, making it a total of $48. Just to make it clear, standard editions like this one can earn you up to 60 club points.
AC Origins Deluxe Edition
This is a step above the standard edition. The price is a bit higher – $70. Once more, you can make it $56 with a 20% discount on the official Ubisoft store. Some of the features that the deluxe edition offers are:
- An exclusive mission Ambush at Sea: Take command in the fight for naval supremacy on the rough seas.
- The Desert Cobra Pack, including:
- The desert cobra outfit: Sneak in the sand and strike as fast as the wind with this outfit.
- The horse, Fangs: This tusk-toting horse stirs fear in the hearts of your enemies.
- Snakes legendary shield: These twin-snakes will protect their master.
- Eye of Apep legendary blunt weapon: This snake may not bite you, but you will feel its sting.
- The fang legendary sickle sword: The Fang is designed to shred anything it touches in pieces.
- Three additional ability points to enhance your Assassin’s starting skills.
If you buy it in a brick-and-mortar store (Xbox and PS4 only), your copy will also have a map of the in-game world and the game’s official soundtrack.
AC Origins Gold Edition Content
This is the $90 version. With a 20% discount from the Ubisoft store, you can lower it down to $72. It has all the features found in the deluxe edition, plus the season pass, which gives you access to all upcoming major expansions and equipment sets. Is it worth this much money? It is up to you to decide.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Gold Steelbook Edition
This one will feature all the content available now and in the future. It doesn’t have a discount price, and you’ll need to give up to $110 of your hard-earned money. As you might have guessed, it has all the content that the gold edition offers, plus a collectible steelbook case.
AC Origins Collector’s – Gods Edition
The gods edition costs $120, and has all the content the deluxe edition contains. That’s it. It doesn’t include the season pass. Besides all the content that the physical deluxe offers, with this one, you’ll also get an art book and a 10.2″ Bayek figurine standing on the statue of Sekhmet, the lioness goddess. Everything here is packaged in a premium Egyptian gods themed collectible box.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Dawn of the Creed Collector’s Edition
This $160 edition is found exclusively on Uplay. This is an upgraded gold edition. It has the season pass, 14.5″ Bayek figurine, Bayek’s eagle amulet, steelbook gold edition of the game, two art cards, world map and official soundtrack, all packed in a white collectible box. The difference in price between this and the next one is a bit, well, steep.
AC Origins Dawn of the Creed Legendary Edition
This is the most expensive version. It is in every way a legendary collector’s edition, as it will be limited to only 999 units, 200 of which will go to North America. It has all the items included in the $160 version (minus the figurine), plus new stuff like: an 18.7″ Bayek statue, a certificate of authenticity, 4 lithographs (15″x11″). All these items are packed in a blue premium collector’s case. The price is a measly $800.
