Assassin's Creed 3 Limited Edition details, 'Fourth of July' trailer released

Today, Ubisoft released a bunch of new information about the impending release of Assassin's Creed III (coming October 30) alongside a brand new trailer which aims to show a somewhat different side of the AC series.

While the trailer is cool, we're most interested in the Limited Edition goodies, because this collection is pretty cool. Along with a copy of the game, the bundle will include:

•       Stunning 9.44" Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade.
•       Embroidered 28"x48" Assassin’s Creed-inspired colonial flag.
•       3"x3.25" sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins.

This mega-edition sells for the fairly hefty price of $119.99. They also revealed the PC special edition which will run $64.99 and include: 

•       George Washington’s notebook revealing his true story during the American Revolution.
•       Three single-player missions taking players from the high seas to Cozumel Island in search of Captain Kidd’s fabled lost treasure.
•       The Captain of the Aquila’s uniform and traditional Colonial Assassin outfit, boarding axe and Scottish flintlock – rumored to have fired “the shot heard round the world” – for use in the single-player campaign.
•       Sharpshooter and Redcoat characters for use in multiplayer.
•       A collection of the best audio tracks from previous Assassin’s Creed games.

And now for the trailer! Be careful, this trailer features two of the most foolproof tear-jerkers in the history of cinema: slow motion deaths and softly-singing children. At least it doesn't have a burned children's toy, Coldplay, or that girl in the red coat from Schindler's List.

    Here's my question does the PS3 limited edition include what you get on the PC's in addition to the flag, the statue and the belt buckle cus if not then it seems like a bit of a gip... the stuff the PC edition gets seems infintaley cooledr than an admittedly cool belt buckle and a figurine.... and at a much cheaper price.... and what about us mac users huh?

    I preordered the freedom edition about a month ago from gamestop uk for £65 on pc its pretty good for what you get in it... Though it seems like a different set of stuff to the limited edition which is a bit odd, I kinda want the belt buckle :)

    I was hoping the freedom edition would come out in the u.s.a but i guess not.

    I'm gonna say it because someone eventually will. That trailer is anti-British... Again. Alright it's not anti-British just pro-USA even though it's supposed to be Assassins vs Templars they haven't actually shown anything but "AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!" and "oh look that Brit is wearing a templar symbol". And that "Oh... well they're all technically British" well they're not when you're waving the stars and stripes in people's faces whilst playing a well known US anthem too. It'd be like me waving the flag of St. George whilst playing Jerusalem in the face of a Scotsman. "Oh but it's cool cos technically we're all British". Saying that I have the Join or die edition pre-ordered from Amazon and am thoroughly looking forward to the game. My fingers are crossed for Washington to turn out to be a Templar but then again he died from natural causes but I can still hope.

    Terrible. Was really hoping for the GW Journal and Medallion from the EU Join or Die edition. BTW, here's a pic:

    1) Fuck you, Ubisoft. 2) Fuck you, every single gamer who encourages this behaviour by actually spending the money.

    Most, if not all of this stuff, is well worth your money if you're an Assassin's Creed fan. I'm curious what you find awful about spending extra money to get sweet stuff.

    You're mad that they're offering the option of buying a special edition with extra stuff? I am confuse.
