So far, Ubisoft has confirmed a handful of special edition versions of Black Flag.
First is the Skull Edition available across all retailers in EMEA and you get: a steelbook case, a soundtrack, an artbook, in-game content, and two (2) lithographs. Looks like it’s going to retail for £54.99.
Second is the Buccaneer Edition exclusive to Game in the UK and GameStop in Ireland. This comes with the
pole-dancing Edward Kenway figurine, a collector’s box, and everything in the Skull Edition. Will apparently retail for £69.99.
Third is the Black Chest Edition which is exclusive to the UPlay store in EMEA and it comes with everything in the aforementioned Buccaneer Edition as well as: a Jackdaw companion for Edward, a parchment map of the game world, a replica black flag, and two (2) canvas prints. Looks to retail for £109.99.
And finally for non-NA folks, there is the Special Edition exclusive to Game in the UK and XtraVision in Ireland, which promises exclusive content at the game’s launch for those who pre-order.
Last but not least! For those of us in NA, when you pre-order through GameStop, you get the limited Todd McFarlane poster (while supplies last) and the Black Island Pack (which includes extra missions, weapons, and multiplayer things). Pre-ordering through Amazon snags the Trove of Mystery DLC which is apparently some extra weapons, missions, and multiplayer items like the Black Island Pack.
Please note these prices aren’t exactly set in stone and could change in the time between now and launch.
