As many expected, Ubisoft dedicated a sizable portion of its E3 2018 Press Conference to officially announcing Assassin's Creed Odyssey with a reveal trailer detailing the forthcoming action-adventure title's take on Ancient Greece. Now, the publisher and developer is already prepared to unveil that the game will have a slew of special editions, with there being four pre-order versions available now for Xbox One.
As seen in the screenshots below from Major Nelson's blog, Assassin's Creed Odyssey on Xbox One currently offers the standard version for $60, the Deluxe Edition for $80, the Gold Edition for $100, and the Ultimate Edition for a whopping $120. As far as the Deluxe Edition is concerned, it will net players early access to The Blind King mission, while the Gold and Ultimate iterations offer the same as the Deluxe. Surely this mean that more content will be revealed for the Gold and Ultimate packages soon.
The unveiling of four special editions for Odyssey should come as no surprise so soon after the game's official reveal. After all, Ubisoft even went so far as to unveiled an $800 Collector's Edition for Assassin's Creed Origins shortly after its confirmation to the public at E3 2017, with the package coming with a highly detailed 73cm numbered Bayek and Senu figuring in resin and many more physical and digital wares.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see which special edition of Assassin's Creed Odyssey that fans gravitate toward to the most when the additional details are provided about the bonus content offered up in each. The most likely pieces to be found in the pre-order iterations for AC Odyssey for Xbox One relate to in-game cosmetics or items to be used, with the higher the price offering more goods. Should one wish to go all-in, though, there will be a $220 Pantheon Edition up for grabs.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is currently scheduled for release on October 5, 2018, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
