Assassin’s Creed 3 gets officially licensed tomahawk: don’t worry, it’s safe

Monday, 10th September 2012 09:18 GMT By Dave Cook

Assassin’s Creed 3 follows Medal of Honor: Warfighter on the list of games that have officially branded tomhawks on their merchandising slate. The only difference is that this one is made of foam.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s misplaced promotion saw branded replica tomahawks being sold in an attempt to raise money for war veterans. The promotion was quickly canned after a spate of complaints from gamers and the wider community.

Ubisoft is also giving you the chance to own your very own tomahawk, but this time it’s made of foam and is completely safe. it’s being sold by Jinx, will run you £42.29 after currency conversion, and is modelled after Connor’s in-game weapon.

Here’s some pics:

Thanks Kotaku.

    A lot smarter and it actually looks good for foam.

    Looks very cheap. I’ve wanted a tomahawk in my collection for some time now, but this one doesn’t look like what I’m looking for :/

    The promo one for this ad looks good, the ad stuff always looks good… The actual product you get, on the other hand…

    @3 Yeah that’s one of the “hidden laws” of toy’s industry: “Make a perfect prototype for the marketing dept, mass produce a shitty toned down final product.”

    …thaaat wouldn’t work as a tomahawk due to the gap in the blade. It’s amusing to see that, though. And moreso that no one else noticed that.

    @5 They have. It’s just an unnecessary to get wrapped up in something that’s obviously a purely stylistic choice.

    Does anyone know if you can ‘free aim’ in Assassins Creed 3?

    It’s almost a deal breaker for me. I enjoyed some of the other games but hated the fact the only distance combat was handled with a ‘lock on’ system.

    It seemed like a really old fashioned design choice, especially after playing as an archer in games like dragons dogma.

    I know melee is the main focus but using knives and pistols, throwing axes without free aim is going to suck.
