I never heard of that extra's. Only the 3-inch altair. So I don't know. But does anybody know how much it is going to cost

@ deskpe

Ubi do release different limited editions of games sometimes, the UK and the US limited editions of Heroes of Might and Magic had different contents, other releases have differed too.
Whether or not AC limited editions will have regional differences remains to be seen.

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif i like it, looks comic-ish

if you dont like it you can buy the other one they sell, not with the game tho

but would ubi leave out all the extras exspet the figure? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Hey I was going to make a topic like this. Which is the U.S. getting that tin or the box+figure I am confused truthfully I want the box and figure but that tin looks cool. I hope someone can clear this up. :-) (From the looks of it the figure might be in the box and that preorder is not for the U.S. although EVERYTHING has mentioned the 3" figure.)

but now it looks like the comic, dvd and tin case is given away as a preorder gift [some places] if you go to the ubi shop, they dont have a limitd edition but they sell the figure by itself and you get the comic etc. as a preorder bonus

I mayby did an msitake I predorders the speciell one from the ubisoft site I thought it was the limited, but i wasnt it has an art book comic book and metall case for it liek the pictures above. the limited is the one with the big box and the altair figure I think the ubisoft is the cooler one what do you guys think.

Limited edition stuff really never caught my interest :P Who really cares if theres a figure. Well its good if you buy the game come home and get the three red lights. Then you have something to cuddle with as you cry in the corner :P

Yeah I really want to find out too.

A shop back where i live(Norway, that's in Europe http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif ) have two different special versions listed.

Collector's - with all the extras except mini-Altair.(499 NOK= little below 100USD)
http://absoluttspill.no/components/com_virtuemart/shop_...b804f285d80faaae.jpg (http://absoluttspill.no/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/4245ea79b0ca2060b804f285d80faaae.jpg)

Limited Edition - w/mini-Altair same picture as OP's post. This costs way more(729 NOK=around 140 USD) though leading me to believe it also contains the stuff in the Collector's Edition.

I'm not preordering before I'm sure of what I'm getting.

Hey, nice to see some fellow vikings.

BTW: The dollar is really weak and the krone is strong right now so its actually 92USD if you wanna be picky http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

But yeah, I want both too. Maybe I'll get the one with the figurine for xbox and the collector's for PC.(If I can afford it :P)

You should be so lucky, guys... Try living in Australia.

Not only do we not get the Limited Edition with the figurine (confirmed by Ubisoft Australia today), but our special edition consists of:

* Game
* Tin
* Comic Book
* Other stuff no one cares about

And the reason we're not getting the figurine edition? According to Ubisoft, the retailers here complained the packaging was too big to fit on their shelves...

Does that sound like an totaly whimsical, farcical excuse to anyone else, or is it just me? I refuse to believe a specialist games retailer would pass up the chance to sell a special edition, regardless of the size... after all, thats what specialist games retailers are there for.

Hmm, but the prize difference is so damn huge that the limited( w/fig) contains collector's edition stuff, unless they are overprizing the figurine horribly. The fig costs what? 30USD. They can't possibly charge 140USD for a regular copy with a 30USD figurine can they? 70USD sure, but 140???

So I wanted to ask about those limited edition and pre-order pack. How do I get the pre-order pack, just by pre-ordering it from anywhere?(I'm from Finland btw) and about that limited edition it has that cool Altar figure right? what else does it come with? and is it worth 100€?

AS far i can see, the LE in europe only comes with figurine(which can be bought by itself later, at alittle higher price).
O just preordered the game of ubis own shop, where the preorder bonus comes with.(and free shipping)
I would love to get a figurine, but the stuff in preorder bonus is what i want out of a LE and not just a figurine. So IMO LE isn´t worth it.

First of, i am not wrong.
2nd: how would i know what others will get. in the end i only care for what i can get. Which in the end is EU pal version http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
and 3rd, i was answering some one from finland. so back at this wasn´t about America version.

And this has been confirmed for some time anyway
http://www.ubi.com/DK/News/Info.aspx?nId=4899
(i know this to danish version of ubisofts site, but the presserelease is in english. So don´t worry)
So only figurine in EU version with preorder pack with(if order from right place)

And you read my post wrong. I never stated it was only for EU, i just said the EU version only comes with figurine.

honestly i dont see a point to the limited edition because its just got stuff im never going to use/look-at/clutter up my room etc, i assume just cut out the middle man preorder the regular version and get my mini stratagy-guide anyway.
