Ubisoft announced today that they're going to offer a Limited Edition of their open-world game Watch Dogs. The LE bundle, priced at $129.99, comes with several exclusive extras.
The big-ticket item in the bundle, other than the game, is a 9-inch statue of hero Aiden Pearce. Aiden wields a pistol in one hand and a smartphone in the other. He struck a similar pose on the game's box art.
The Limited Edition also includes Aiden Pearce's "vigilante mask." It's essentially a bandana with a lightning bolt-like symbol on the front. Perfect for playing paintball or robbing liquor stores.
The bundle comes with a copy of the soundtrack as well. The game was scored by Brian Reitzell, who also worked on Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides and Red Faction: Armageddon. He's currently the composer for the NBC series Hannibal as well.
The copy of Watch Dogs comes in a SteelBook case. The game and all of its extras are packaged inside of special collector's box with exclusive cover art. Ubisoft managed to fit an 80-page hardcover art book in there as well with loads of concept art from the game's development.
There's two good reasons why this bundle sounds familiar to you. One, the UK is getting a very similar DedSec Edition. Two, Ubisoft announced a Limited Edition of Assassin's Creed 4 yesterday that also includes a statue, art book, soundtrack and SteelBook case. Ah, Collector's Editions, you are some pricey and predictable bastards.
Like the AC4 Limited Edition, the Watch Dogs bundle will be available on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Yep, the Wii U is getting snubbed again.
In Watch Dogs, a supercomputer known as CtOS watches over the citizens of Chicago. It monitors them constantly in hopes of preventing terrorist activities. Aiden Pearce is a hacker who has found out how to tap into this system. He'll use the CtOS's power over the city's infrastructure to exact justice on the city's various miscreants. He'll also face off against the city's other hackers in head-to-head multiplayer.
If you're planning to pre-order the Limited or Standard Edition, note that retailers are offering exclusive sets of DLC to woo customers. You can find out what each retailer is offering here.
