Boasting an array of delightfully superfluous game-inspired extras, the Assassins Creed Unity Collectors Edition is certain to appeal to fans of Ubisofts venerable stealth based action-adventure series. In addition to the game disc, the sets ornately decorated box is stuffed with an art book, the games official soundtrack, a working wooden music box (that plays the games theme), and a download code for two additional playable missions. Adding to an already impressive list of items, the most compelling element of the Assassins Creed Unity Collectors Edition is the superb limited edition statue that serves as the offerings inspiring centerpiece.
Like the that shipped with the premium version of 2013s Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag, Unitys collectors edition statue is manufactured by PureArts for UbiCollectibles. The 16-inch tall piece depicts the games protagonist, Master Assassin Arno Durant, atop a gargoyle base wielding a saber and pennant inspired by the narratives setting amidst the turmoil of the French Revolution. The bold detail in the sculpture and precision in the paint application are immediately impressive, as is the realistic windblown appearance of Arnos coat and the flag unfurled above him.
For PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC gamers undeterred by its $129.99 USD price tag, the Assassins Creed Unity Collectors Edition has a wealth of exclusive physical and digital content to justify a splurge. For Assassins Creed enthusiasts with a penchant for brilliantly crafted video game statues, Ubisofts pricey premium set is likely to be a must-have.
