Europe Gets Assassin’s Creed 4 Collector’s Editions

Assassin's Creed 4 Collector's Edition

European peeps can get a ton of not-buried Assassin’s Creed 4 booty. PLUS: World Premiere Gameplay Trailer!

Remember last year, when Europe got a plethora of Assassin’s Creed 3 Collector’s Editions, so many that it would make your head spin? Well Ubisoft has decided to do a repeat with Assassin’s Creed 4. And… wow.

There is a lot of stuff in these. Like, really.

First off, everyone who pre-orders directly from UPlay, Game, Amazon and GameStop will be sign up to “The Watch”, which will give you access to all this exclusive content and news.

Each version of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag  (PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Wii U) will have a Black Chest Edition filled to the brim with buried booty that’s no longer buried.

Arrr, matey! Look at all that booty, arrr~!

Let’s take a look at what we got in this thing, which European peeps can order exclusively on UPlay:

Physical content

  • A 55cm-high diorama of Captain Edward Kenway leading the charge on his ship’s bow, the Jackdaw
  • A steelbook in the colours of the Golden Age of Piracy
  • Collector’s box
  • A high quality artbook including artworks that inspired the game
  • The Official Game Soundtrack
  • A world map Pirates used to navigate through the world’s most treacherous waters
  • 2 lithographs in a protective envelope
  • The Jackdaw’s Black Flag, embroidered with the Assassin’s Crest
  • 2 canvas prints

Digital Content

  • 3 additional solo missions for an extra 45 minutes of gameplay:
    • Black Island: Captain Morgan’s favourite ship has sunken off the coast with a full load of legendary sailing equipment. Explore the Black Island and retrieve these items Pirates have desperately been looking for.
    • Hidden Mystery: Follow Stede Bonnet’s path and find the secrets of his adventures on the beautiful island of St Lucia.
    • Sacrificed Secrets: Recover Captain Drake’s lost treasures, including golden flintlocks and cutlass when exploring the exotic island of Sacrifices.
  • Additional Single & Multiplayer items:
    • Captain Kenway’s Legacy
    • Pride of the West Indies
    • Trove of Mystery
    • The Castaway’s Prize

That’s quite the haul, there. If that’s a bit too rich, you could probably snatch the Buccaneer’s Edition, which players get order from Game in the UK or GameStop in Ireland.
