    Welp. I suppose I’ll just get myself a regular copy and buy that Freedom Edition DLC seperately when it comes out.

    That statuette looks very cool, but why exactly does getting the most expensive version mean you miss out on the medallion? So Ubi actually wants people to buy both to get everything? Really?

    Special Edition for me (I always get the AC special editions, they’re only like a fiver more expensive) and yeah, like JRNO I’ll just get the rest of the content when it’s made available as DLC.

    Does anyone even know if there will be these editions for America or is it going to be another type of ACR BS?
