Assassin's Creed Odyssey Pre-Order Guide
Becoming a Spartan hero is a fantasy several have fawned over since the release of the classic Frank Miller comic series and movie 300. Combining that beloved setting with the stealthy action gameplay of Assassin's Creed seems like a perfect fit -- and it'll be hitting store shelves as Assassin's Creed Odyssey for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5.
To get the most out of your purchase of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll want to pay close attention to the different editions and pre-order bonuses available before launch. Let's take a look.
Pre-ordering the game gives access to The Blind King mission -- while purchasing a physical copy from GameStop also comes with a helmet keychain.
Pre-ordering either the Gold, Ultimate, Spartan, or Pantheon editions nabs you the game three days early.
At $59.99, the Standard Edition of the game comes with everything you'd expect it to -- the game and nothing else (no pre-order bonuses here). The Standard Edition is available physically or digitally for PS4 and Xbox One, and only digitally on PC.
Available either physically or digitally, the Deluxe Edition of Assassin's Creed Odyssey starts your game off with an extra boost. The Deluxe Pack gives an XP and currency boost, Kronos and Herald of Dusk Gear Packs with weapons and armor for the main characters, and a Capricornus Naval Pack.
Price: $109.99 (Physical), $99.99 (Digital)
Although the Gold Edition is $20 more than the Deluxe, this edition of the game does not include the Deluxe pack above. However, it does include the season pass and three days of early access, along with the Secret of Greece bonus mission.
The price for the season pass has not been released yet, but it will include all future downloadable content. The physical edition is a bit more expensive, but it does come with the limited edition steelbook case.
Ultimate (Digital) Edition
If you want to get all of the digital content available for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, your best bet is the Ultimate Edition. This edition includes all of the content in the Gold and Deluxe editions of the game -- but is only available digitally.
Kassandra Collector's Edition
For those who love collectible statues and figurines, GameStop has an exclusive collector's edition. The Kassandra Collector's Edition includes all of the content from the Deluxe and Gold editions of the game, along with the steelbook case, and of course, a 9-inch figurine of one of the protagonists, Kassandra.
Spartan and Pantheon Collector's Editions
Price: $159.99 or $219.99
Retailers: Ubisoft Store
These collector's editions are for the true hardcore Assassin's Creed fans. Coming with all of the content from the Deluxe and Gold editions, both editions also come with a steelbook case, a 64-page art book, an exclusive lithograph by Hugo Puzzuoli, a print of the game's hand-drawn map, and the soundtrack.
The Spartan collector's edition contains the Spartan Leap Statue, measuring 15 and a half inches tall. The Pantheon collector's edition comes with the Athenian statue along with the Spartan one to create the Nemesis diorama. Both of these editions are sold exclusively through the Ubisoft store.
