Available for preorder exclusively at Ubiworkshop.com, the Ubiworkshop Edition of Assassin's Creed III bundles the game with the second edition of the coveted Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia and a new graphic novel for a smidge under a hundred bucks.

In a way, you're just trading one Assassin's Creed III collectible for two, seeing as our American $100 bill features the face of a character from the game. I would have preferred a $99 special edition that bundled the game with one of those, but the books are incredibly nice.

The Encyclopedia, previously available as a standalone item in the U.S. and part of a European GameStop special edition, compiles everything you need to know about the lengthy history of conflict between the Assassins and Templars into one handy volume, now updated to include more recent information.


The Assassin's Creed Subject 4 graphic novel contains the entire Daniel Cross/Nikolaï Orelov narrative arc, compiling both The Fall and the as-yet-unreleased The Chain comic book series.

It's not a bad bundle for $100, especially considering Ubiworkshop is offering free shipping worldwide. The price only lasts until July 4, however, after which it jumps to the completely unreasonable $109.99.
