Collector’s editions for video games can get pretty pricey but rarely do they go for anywhere near the price of the Assassin’s Creed Origins — Dawn of the Creed Legendary edition. The going rate? $800.

Sold exclusively through Ubisoft’s Uplay Store, the Dawn of the Creed Legendary Edition is a limited run, only 200 will be produced. So for $800, what do you get?

The standout item is a meticulously crafted 28.7-inch Bayek and Senu figurine manufactured by Ubi collectibles. It seems to be the only way to obtain the figurine, too.

The rest of the items, if we’re being honest, are standard collector’s edition fare, but there just happens to be a bunch of them.

  • A hand-drawn world map of Origins Egyptian setting.
  • Four 15-by-11-inch lithographs
  • An art book
  • Two art cards
  • Bayek’s Eagle Skull Amulet (You can control an eagle in Origins)
  • The official soundtrack in a slipcase
  • Premium collector’s edition case
  • A steel book case (yes, you get two cases)
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins season pass

Additionally, you gain access to the Desert Cobra Pack, which has weapons and armor, a naval mission called “Ambush at Sea” and the pre-order bonus mission, “Secrets of the First Pyramids.”

If that sounds good to you, you might want to pre-order it soon (or not, because who knows how long it will take to sell out of an $800 edition of a video game).

The $800 collector’s edition may actually work out in Ubisoft’s favor. Not because it’s a bargain, but because it makes the regular old Dawn of the Creed collector’s edition look like a steal at $160. The $160 edition comes with a smaller 14.5-inch Bayek statue, and all of the goodies in the Legendary edition besides the steel book and the lithographs.

Origins also has a God’s collector edition, a Steel book Gold edition, a Gold edition, a Deluxe edition, and of course, the standard edition of the game. Yes, Assassin’s Creed Origins will have seven different editions when it launches October 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Assassin's Creed franchise has become an integral part of video game culture. With 12 major titles under their belt, Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec have been expanding the ever-so-secret society of Assassins on a relatively yearly basis. Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was the biggest game yet, with over 100 hours of content between the base game and current DLCs, but Ubisoft is dreaming even bigger.

Assassin's Creed Infinity is starting to sound like the biggest game of all time, but news on the front has taken a backseat as of late. Ubisoft seems more focused on Skull and Bones, due out November 8, 2022.  That said, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Infinity, including release date, gameplay, multiplayer, and more.

In a blow to game preservation, Ubisoft has delisted Assassin's Creed Liberation HD from the Steam store. Though the company originally noted that players who owned the game would lose access to it on September 1, it has clarified that it won't be revoking access after all.

The news comes after Ubisoft recently shut down online servers for 15 games such as Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Far Cry 3, and Assassin's Creed 2, rendering their multiplayer modes unplayable. Earlier in 2022, Ubisoft shut down online services for over 90 games.
