Assassin’s Creed: Revelations special collector’s editions have been announced and detailed, they include the Animus, Signature and Collector’s Edition, with the packages varying in their contents depending on whether you live in North America or Europe.

It can all be very confusing, so here is the lowdown in a concise and clear manner.

I Live In the America, What Do I Get?
If you live in the USA, you can pre-order the game at GameStop to have your copy of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations upgraded to the “Signature Edition” at no extra cost. This version comes with a load of extras that make it similar, though not identical, to the “Animus Edition” in Europe. Upgrading will give you the following:

  1. Vlad the Impaler Bonus Single-Player Mission
  2. Weapons Capacity Upgrades
  3. Exclusive Multiplayer Character (either the Crusader or Ottoman Jester, which hasn’t been confirmed)
  4. Assassin’s Creed: Embers animated film
  5. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Original Game Soundtrack (in lieu of the Encyclopedia included in the Euro-exclusive Animus Edition)
