Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gold Edition Deal Up to 20% Off

0

In less than a handful of hours, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will go live for those who sprang for the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s Editions. These premium editions grant 3-day early access on Tuesday, October 2nd for Ubisoft’s latest installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. The perk isn’t coming by cheaply as well, with the most expensive Ultimate Edition going for $119.99 on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. In our opinion, the Ultimate Edition is completely unreasonable and if you’re a big Assassins’ Creed fan that wants to get started early, you should only consider the Gold Edition.

 

Various deals are available depending on if you’re a PC gamer or a console gamer. The discounts available for PC digital copy is a lot more tolerable, with discounts up to 20% off, making Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gold Edition “only” $80 after using a currently available coupon. For console gamers, you’ll be able to pick up a $10 Best Buy rewards certificate in lieu of a direct discount.

 

By all accounts, the game is winning rave reviews from across the board. Unlike year’s past, Odyssey is essentially a full-blown RPG title and the reception received is telling. While both the Gold and Ultimate Edition will receive early access, for the price of Ultimate (even after a discount), you’re better off just paying for Gold which includes the Season Pass. Ultimate nets you everything along with the cosmetic and in-game items included in the Deluxe Edition. Personally, we can do without paying an additional $20 just for in-game items that won’t really add to the gameplay or story.

Ultimate Edition vs Gold Edition of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

 

As mentioned above, we heartily suggest you avoid the Ultimate Edition of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which we think is nothing less than a cash-grab by Ubisoft. The differences in the four available editions are pretty straightforward. Standard Edition includes the base game, while Deluxe adds additional gears, in-game skins, and items for $20 more.

 

At $40 more, Gold Edition comes bundled with the usual Season Pass, but instead of also including what Deluxe Edition offers, these in-game items are now separated out and thrown into the Ultimate Edition for $120. Given the Deluxe Edition doesn’t even include early access – even with its $80 list price – we also think it’s an edition to avoid.

 

All pre-orders include the standard “The Blind King” DLC mission, while select retailers include other trinkets. For example, Best Buy is offering a set of lithograph prints while GameStop is offering an exclusive free in-game legendary mount for all editions. Note that Best Buy also offers up a physical Steelbook Gold Edition for an extra $10, but unless you really want a Steelbook case or the physical copy, you can simply opt for the $10 cheaper digital Gold Edition.  While the GameStop pre-order bonus is decent, we think the discount and rewards certificate being offered are plenty more valuable than an in-game mount.
