Is the Assassin’s Creed Shadows Collector’s Edition Worth it?

Character statue? Sign me up!

While games nowadays tend to only offer digital bonuses for different editions, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Shadows offers a little more than that with its Collector’s Edition. It comes as no surprise, though, as Assassin’s Creed is one of the most iconic gaming franchises in the world.

However, the price of Assassin’s Creed Shadows is a bit steep, even though it offers several physical items along with the game. Will the Assassin’s Creed Shadows Collector’s Edition be worth it or is it better to buy the other editions instead? Let’s find out!

Assassin’s Creed Shadows Collector’s Edition

You can search for the Assassin’s Creed Shadows Collector’s Edition on Ubisoft’s website. It is available for pre-order in limited quantities and is only available at participating retailers.

The Collector’s Edition of the game includes everything the Ultimate Edition and more.

The Ultimate Edition includes:

  • 3 days of early access to the game
  • Season Pass including a bonus quest at launch with at least two of the next expansions
  • Thrown to the Dogs bonus quest
  • Sekiryu Character Pack
  • Hideout Pack
  • 5 Skill Points
  • Red Dragon Filter in Photo Mode

The Collector’s Edition includes:

  • Naoe and Yasuke 40cm character statue
  • Steelbook case
  • Collector’s Art Book
  • Creed Wall Scroll
  • World Map
  • Life-sized Naoe’s Katana Tsuba
  • 2 Sumi-E Lithographs

Offer subject to change.

We’ll focus specifically at the Collector’s Edition since the Ultimate Edition can be brought separately at a much lower price.

The Naoe and Yasuke 40cm character statue already makes the Collector’s Edition worth it. Assuming you are a huge fan of the game, the sheer size of the statue would roughly be upwards of $160 based on the typical figures you see from Japan. The 40cm size is slightly smaller than a 1/4 scale figure, but this goes for a whopping amount depending on the manufacturer and the character.

The attention to detail and quality of the statue are still quite subjective. Then again, this is two characters in one statue, which means that these characters aren’t exactly 1/4-scale figures to begin with. However, it does require more work and detail to finish.

Everything else is a great bonus, such as the Life-sized Naoe’s Katana Tsuba. You can even use this as a medallion if you want. Physical copies of your favorite games are always a joy to collect if you are a fan of the game and having a Steelbook case will surely add value to some collectors.

With all the added content, the Collector’s Edition should be worth it for avid fans of the franchise. Again, it also depends on how much you enjoy the game, too.

Which Installment is the Assassin’s Creed Shadows in the Franchise?

Assassin’s Creed Shadows is the 14th installment of the franchise and the follow-up to Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The story is set in 16th-century Japan near the end of the Sengoku period and follows the perspectives of two protagonists, Naoe and Yasuke. Naoe is a shinobi or ninja while Yasuke is a samurai warrior.

Both characters will show two different perspectives while offering two different playstyles. Naoe brings back the old stealthy gameplay from the old Assassin’s Creed games, finally, right? Yasuke is more of a fierce warrior who goes toe-to-toe against his foes, drawing similarities from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
