Assassins Creed III Special Edition Available for GAME

GAME and Ubisoft have become one again and as a ‘welcome back’ favour, Ubisoft has given the retailer a special edition of Assassin’s Creed III.

Named the Exclusive Edition, it will come with an additional single player mission ‘A Dangerous Street’ and a new weapon – the Flintock Musket.

It can be pre-ordered for £39.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3 in stores and online. It is released on October 31st in the UK.

Ian Shepherd, last year, commented on how important ‘Exclusive’ Editions can be to the retailer;

“Last year we offered customers 39 exclusive versions of titles, and on average they delivered a market share around a third higher than when we sell a generic version of a game,” he claimed.

“Our exclusives are stronger than ever, and in Q1 2011 have included exclusive versions of Pokemon Black and White; the Bulletstorm Epic edition which provided Beta access to Gears of War 3; and the Crysis 2 Nano Edition which included an exclusive backpack, figurine and book.”

“Increasingly we are working with supplier partners to provide customers with exclusive digital content when they buy a physical copy of a game. This helps us to introduce customers to digital content, and to position GAME as the lead authority on multichannel gaming.

“We maintain a very strong share on all new products because our supplier partners see how we actively sell more products than anyone else, and they support us with exclusive products and appropriate volumes of stock.”
