Now here’s something you don’t see every day: a high-profile video game getting an online-only exclusive edition. But sure enough, Ubisoft hopes to tap into the Amazon-shopping masses by creating a Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Lethal Pirate Edition and making it exclusive to Amazon.
Amazon will offer the Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Lethal Pirate Edition as an “upgrade,” which means that for $10 more, players can upgrade their current Black Flag purchase to the “Lethal Pirate Edition” and receive some exclusives. The most notable exclusive goodie is the infamous pirate Black Bart, bur there’s also some exclusive unlockable in-game content. You can pre-order the game using this link.
The Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Lethal Pirate Edition includes:
- Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Video Game including the free pre-order bonus ULC: Hidden Mystery Pack
- A custom-designed Black Bart figurine and digital wallpaper, created by comic artist Todd McFarlane
- Exclusive in-game content: Black Bart’s legendary black sails to customize your pirate ship and terrorize your enemies on the high seas
Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on Oct. 29, while a PC version will ship on Nov. 19. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will ship on those consoles’ respective launch dates. Ubisoft indicated that the Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Lethal Pirate Edition is available now on Amazon, although we had difficulties finding it with any search that included “lethal pirate” in the search term.
Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.
