After a slew of games, tie-ins and graphic novels, the story of Assassin’s Creed has become rather convoluted and unfriendly for the curious gamer looking forward to entering for the first time. To make that a little easier, Ubisoft has announced an Amazon-only Encyclopedia Edition for the game available for about $100 dollars.
Besides the game itself, the edition will net you the following:
- The Assassin’s Creed Encyclopedia 2nd Edition – The definitive guide to a universe that spans many different platforms and media
- The Assassin’s Creed Subject 4 Graphic Novel – Contains the whole Daniel Cross/Nikolaï Orelov narrative arc by merging Assassin’s Creed The Fall and its sequel Assassin’s Creed The Chain.
- Boarding Axe single player weapon (with pre-order)
- The Captain of the Aquila multiplayer character (with pre-order)
As with all PS3 copies of the game, you’ll receive 4 exclusive single player missions for free. Assassin’s Creed 3 will be launching on the 30th of this month.
