Ubisoft has put together a super-special edition of Assassin's Creed III that will be auctioned off for the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation.
Sometimes, we get a bit sick of all the different editions of games with their respective pre-order bonuses and what have you, but this Assassin's Creed III definitely gets a thumbs up.
Ubisoft has put together just 10 of the packs — in the whole world — and will be auctioning off eight of them on eBay, with proceeds going to the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick.
The first auction starts today, and runs for five days (subsequent auctions will only be three days), with the final one happening on 15 December.
So, what's in the edition? A lot! For a start, it all comes in a custom-made trunk, but the full list of goodies is:
Assassin's Creed III backpack satchel
Assassin's Creed III tomahawk USB key
Assassin's Creed III steel postcard
Assassin's Creed III notebook
Assassin's Creed III belt buckle
Assassin's Creed III wristband
Assassin's Creed III iron-on patch
Assassin's Creed III steel book
Assassin's Creed III lead figurines
Assassin's Creed III tomahawk keychain
Assassin's Creed III liberation keychain
Sony PS3 ULC — Captain of the Aquila, Colonial Assassin, Red Coat Multiplayer Pack
Sony PS Vita ULC — Mysteries of the Bayou
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation for Vita
Assassin's Creed III: Freedom Edition.
And just so we're clear, that's the full Freedom Edition, which features the following:
A 24cm high-quality figurine of Connor
Steel book case art drawn by award-winning comic artist Alex Ross
George Washington's notebook
One exclusive Lithograph
Bonus single-player mission: Lost Mayan Ruins
Bonus single-player mission: Ghost of War
Bonus multiplayer package: The Sharpshooter.
We asked Ubisoft what's happening with the other two not being auctioned off, and the company let us know that it's keeping them up its sleeves for photo shoots and the like. It will either use them as giveaways or end up auctioning them off anyway.
