    That's interesting that the Special Edition has a mission you can't get in the others. I guess that means they'll be releasing all these extra missions as DLC at some point. I can't imagine you'd have to buy the game twice to see everything.

    Ahh this is where all the time & efforts going, as if I never suspected

    It's a shame the sales are going to be down it looks like there's an awful lot of plastic crap going to be sat in a warehouse somewhere, instead of spending time on plastic dolls and necklaces perhaps the effort could go into programming the game correctly so it's a working release?

    Looks great. Too bad the AC special editions will not be available in my country ... again.
    What does UBISoft have against their US player base?

    Looks interesting. Hopefully we can get some info on the US version soon.

    I have a feeling it'll be a mess like every other recent release here. Gamestop will have one of the mission. Best Buy will have the multiplayer pack. Target will have the coin and journal. Amazon will have the statue.

    Not that I know, but special editions and preorder bonuses have been a disaster here lately.

    Ubisoft, please don't split the editions between regions again. The US wasn't even allowed the Animus Edition. Not to mention the torture I had to endure when I couldn't have my favorite multiplayer character(the Doctor).

    So please allow everyone to buy what they want when this game comes out.

    You may experience a few side-effects... ALL OF THEM ARE DEATH.

    Why the HELL isn't this available in Canada/US? this makes no freaking sense! same with ACR. I really don't get why only Europe gets those amazing editions! For trucks sake the game is made by Ubisoft MONTREAL which is in North America! Sure Ubi is a France company but still!

    It has a steelbook AND a figurine! I'm a sucker for these collectible things! I already have TWO Ezios and the flying machine from ACB and the older Ezio from ACR on my 'nerd' shelf plus the collector's edition Doctor Jack in the Box!

    It IS early to tell what kind of stuff North America will get so i'll stay patient for now but going by ACR i'm a little skeptical!

    Holy crap i want that Freedom edition so bad!

    Eh...wont be buying the game anyway because it has multiplayer...unless they reveal how they have fixed multiplayer for this game, As of right now though, its a pass. I would assume that since the game is about America, they have to get a collector's edition. I dont really see too many people from Europe buying the freedom edition because of the connor statue with the american flag.
