The upcoming Assassin’s Creed film may not be an actual game from the popular Ubisoft franchise but it’s now certainly being marketed like one, especially with Ubisoft saying there will be no game from the series released this year. Now, Assassin’s Creed has several pre-order tiers for its upcoming release.
Kernel has recently uploaded a set of packages to its website detailing several pre-ordering tiers. The list of pre-orders starts at $15 and includes a movie ticket and a digital copy of the script. From there, prices escalate. $25 nets you a T-shirt, a ticket, and a script. One step up is $40 which will get you all the previous goodies plus a digital watch.
Things then start to go even more off the rails. With the $50 tier sold out, we skip to the $60 tier which offers a ticket to the Assassin's Creed film, a script and a life-size wearable hidden blade like that used in the film. However, after that there’s a sudden jump in price, where $120 will get you a hoodie, a ticket, and a script.
From here, all bets are off. The first of the final two pre-order tiers is $600 for a statue of the Assassin in the film, Aguilar, alongside the ticket and script. Finally, perhaps one of the most expensive film pre-order bonuses to date, a whopping $1200 which will get you a 1:1 scale replica of the Spanish crossbow used in the film… as well as a ticket and script, of course.
The Assassin’s Creed film tells the tale of Callum Lynch, a man who enters a device called the Animus in order to access genetic memories of his ancestors. The device takes his genetic memory back to 15th century Spain, where he sees the adventures of his ancestor, a man named Aguilar who works for a group called the Assassins in their fight against their mortal enemies, the Templars.
Starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Assassin’s Creed will release in cinemas on December 16th, 2016.
