UPDATE!!

So now I digged this in ubi forums where gamestop/amazon preorder bonuses for Germany and australia that includes:

I think by context clues it says Eagle Captain?

you get a Blue (Mohawkian/native american?) Assassin robe plus some new kind of tomahawk (may have higher stats than the basic tomahwak)

http://xboxgamezone.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/830px-AC3_ULC01_AQUILA_DEAT.jpg

 

The next bonus is (again based of context clues): Colony Assassin

You get a Colonial style Assassin robe and a new flintlock pistol, which again, may have higher stats than a biasic flintlock pistol

http://xboxgamezone.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/830px-AC3_ULC02_COLONIAL_DEAT.jpg

And BEHOLD! A new multiplayer charcater has entered the Fray (this one is gamestop preorder for germany): The Red coat (context clue again)

http://xboxgamezone.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/830px-AC3_ULC03_REDCOAT_DEAT.jpg

 

*looksl ike now we have 2 confired online charcaters: the sharpshooter (John Marston looking character) and The female RedCoat soldier.

Batman-Why do we fall? WE fall so we can learn to get back up!
Nightwing- No! that's not true, we fall because SOMEONE pushes us. We get up....to Push Back!

That Connor statue looks awesome. Hopefully we get some comparable goodies state-side. Thanks for putting this information in one spot.

Also, the Sharpshooter MP skin loosely reminds me of Clint Eastwood in Pale Rider, probably because of the poncho looking garb.

How come North America NEVER gets the good stuff? I'm a HUGE fan of the series and would have no problems paying $99.99 for the Collectors editions of the games. I ONLY have the Collectors Editions when available and the SE for Revelations. Again all the collectors editions for Revelations went to Europe.

I understand how you feel, any many other North americans (US,CAD,MEX). AC2 was the only good Collecto'rs ed in NA. Brotherood...yeah we had one but compared to EMEA's Collecto's Editions (Especially Vs Codex Edition) ours looked more like ACR's signature edition

Im only hoping that since NA hasn't been given news of CE, (One) I can only hope than later in time we may actually get a CE that may match to EMEA's versions.

For example: We MAY (that's a big IF) get a (Freedom) edition where we get everything like bonus missions, Washingotns journal, connor Statue and even (JorD. Editions) the Assassin Necklace altogether. And as preorder we may get the (EMEA's) special edition bonuses as a preorder bonus?

So far for preordering we have gotten a Steelbook, which in EU you can only get if you get the  Freddom Edition.

Since we already have the Steelbook JUST for preordering (assuming you guys got yours while it was still hot in the beginning of March) then...we may have hope we may get more good(s) than can match to EU special editions

just remember guys we still have time till AC3 releases so...who knows maybe next month or in the summer, like E3 time, we may get reveleaed with something

ps- the online charcater actually reminds me of John Mraston from Red Dead Redemption (which supposibly AC3 is mildy aspired from RDR) lol

Most of us do!

Though personally I like the Join or Die Collector's box than the Freedom box

Also It be neat have Connor's medallion since it's something you CAN use than statue of Connor (don't get me wrong Connor statue is awesome, but a medallion you can use about anywhere, school, work etc lol)

Every beginning, has an End.

True, but EU people can't get that glorious Steelbook anywhere but in the Freedom.

How dumb is it to have an edition called the "freedom edition" of a game based in America, not be available to the U.S.?????
