Ubisoft has revealed details on its upcoming super deluxe Assassin's Creed II Limited Edition: Master Assassin's Edition, which will be available exclusively at U.S. GameStops on November 11 for $79.99.
In addition to the game, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 packages will include an 8.5’’ Ezio collectable statue, “The Art of Assassin’s Creed II” hard-cover book, a bonus disc with behind-the-scene footage and the game's soundtrack, as well as a collectable tin.
But easily the most intriguing aspect of the edition is the inclusion of two “exclusive in-game maps,” Palazzo Medici (pre-order unlockable) and Santa Maria Dei Frari (limited edition exclusive). Obviously, when “in-game maps” are mentioned, your first inclination is to think about multiplayer. However, Ubisoft has consistently said that there will be no multiplayer in ACII. So what are gamers to think?
Well, I just heard back from a Ubisoft PR representative who said, “ACII is single-player. More details on how the exclusive maps work will be revealed at gamescom.”
Clearly, Ubisoft has something very interesting up its dagger-hiding sleeves. Fortunately, you won’t have to wait too much longer to find out what the big secret is, as gamescom starts August 19. Until then, let the speculation commence!
