E3 2018: There’s A Lot Of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Editions
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is coming this year, and like Assassin’s Creed Origins, you won’t be starving for choice. Ubisoft has announced six different special editions, in addition to the standard version, for a total of seven different ways to buy the game.
Those versions ascend progressively in terms of both price and extra goodies. The $80 Deluxe Edition includes digital content like currency boosts and gear packs. For $110 you can get the Gold Edition, which gives you a season pass and early access. But for another ten, at $120, you can get all the content from both the Deluxe and Gold versions in the “Ultimate Edition.”
With a name like “Ultimate” you might think that’s the top-tier, but there are still three more. A GameStop-exclusive Kassandra Edition includes all of that plus a statue of Kassandra for $150. And finally, the Collector’s Edition comes in two flavors: Spartan and Pantheon. Both include all of the prior content, a 64-page artbook, a lithograph by Hugo Puzzuoli, a map, and a select soundtrack. But the Spartan version includes a Spartan statue, while the Pantheon version includes both Spartan and Athenian statues to create a diorama. Those are available exclusively through Ubisoft for $160 and $220, respectively.
On top of that, each of the statues is for sale individually, and you can get other bonuses for pre-ordering through various retailers. Check out our pre-order guide to help you sort through all the details.
It’s all enough to make your head spin, but apparently it worked out well enough for Origins to repeat the pricing plan. Like Origins too, there’s one super-expensive bit of collector’s merch: a massive limited edition statue of Alexios standing on the head of Medusa, for the low low price of $750.
