Ubisoft have announced three Special Editions for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III.

There will be an ordinary Special Edition in which will include special packaging and an exclusive single player mission. The mission, titled A Dangerous Secret, in which you  will be fighting against a secret that could jeopardise the funding of the Revolution. A Flintlock Musket will become available to you after completing the mission.

Then there’s the Join or Die Edition, of which will feature the following content:

  • The medallion of the Assassins with its high-quality curd ladle
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth and secrets about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution.
  • Ghost of War single player mission
  • Multiplayer Sharpshooter package

Finally, The Freedom Edition will obviously be the most expensive of the versions, and will include all the following content:

  • A 24-cm high-quality figurine of Connor
  • A steelbook case art drawn by awards-winning comic artist Alex Ross
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templars during the American Revolution.
  • One exclusive Lithograph
  • Lost Mayan Ruins single player mission: Connor’s mission leads him in an old Mayan pyramid, full of mysteries and revelations. Players will be able to unlock Captain Kidd’s fabled cutlass, a deadly, brutal and beautiful piece of steel.
  • Ghost of War single player mission: The tide of the Revolution turns into the Templars favor. Defeat your enemies and unlock The Pontiac’s War Club, a powerful Native American weapon.
  • Multiplayer Sharpshooter package: Unleash the Sharpshooter fury in multiplayer with one new character, the Sharpshooter, one Relic, one Emblem, one special Picture and the Title of “The Jester”.

Ubisoft have yet to confirm pricing of these Special Editions, although as Assassin’s Creed III isn’t due out until October 31st on PS3 and Xbox 360, there’s plenty of time for that.

Assassin’s Creed III is also in development for the Wii U.
