Best deals on Assassin's Creed Odyssey from Gold to Standard

Of course there is a $120 edition

Arriving Friday this week, Ubisoft's latest installment of Assassin's Creed title, Assassin's Creed Odyssey comes in four different editions. In fact, the two priciest editions will come with early access on Tuesday, October 2nd - a full 3 days before the official release date. Before you scoff at the early-access-only-for-expensive-edition schemes, the concept has been proven to work, what with Shadow of the Tomb Raider Croft Edition (the only version getting early access) being the top seller on Steam Store the full week before the official release date.

Thankfully, list price aside, we've found plenty of decent savings on Assassin's Creed Odyssey so if you're looking for the best and cheapest deal on release week, you're at the right place. Below, you'll find discounts at up to 20% off for the PC Uplay digital copy, while console copies can still reap a $10 rewards certificate bonus.

As of writing, pre-load has already started for the PC version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Both digital retailers listed below are sending out Uplay keys immediately after purchase. For those curious, the review is now live and thus far this looks to be one of the best title in the series yet.

Update: Early access for Gold and Ultimate Editions are now live. For the preload and release date on the Standard and Deluxe Editions, refer to the launch schedule here from Ubisoft.

Note: Best Buy pre-order $10 rewards certificate bonus offer is available until 5 PM central time the day before the street date (10/05/18). A pricier physical copy of the Gold Edition is also available at $109.99. If you order it past the cut-off time, YMMV on receiving the $10 bonus.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Pre-Order Bonus


Picking up any of the editions of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, whether for the PC or console will net you a bonus "The Blind King" additional mission DLC. Strangely, details on the mission have been light and there actually have been theories and discussion surrounding who the "king" is that is being referenced in the DLC namesake. If you're a casual Assassin's Creed or history fan, then this is probably a moot point for you. While it is a bit annoying that content is being tucked behind a pre-order exclusion, based on experience in the past these DLC missions are made available for free through Ubisoft Club (free to join) about a month after the game is fully released.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Ultimate Edition Comparison


Ubisoft has taken money-grab to the next level, with Assasin's Creed Odyssey having four editions on launch  (excluding collector's editions). With list price as high as $120, you'd think you'll be receiving some sort of physical bonus such as a figure, statue, or other forms of collectibles. You'll be dead wrong as everything is digital.

If you want physical goodies, you'll have to opt for the Collector Editions which comes in the form of a Spartan ($159.99) and Patheon Edition ($219.99!). For the game itself, the Standard is $59.99, Deluxe is $79.99, Gold is $99.99, while the Ultimate is $119.99. Suffice to say, Ultimate Edition is only for the biggest Assassin's Creed fan that wants everything the game offers.

For simplicity sake, we'll focus on the editions that are accessible to most gamers (the collector's editions are sold in limited quantity and only at select retailers). Here's the breakdown:

  • Standard Edition - base game
  • Deluxe Edition (+$20) -  deluxe pack: Kronos and Herald of Dust gear packs, Capricornus naval pack, 1 XP and 1 Drachma boost
  • Gold Edition (+$40) - season pass with new narrative arcs, major story content. also includes "The Secrets of Greece" exclusive quest on launch
  • Ultimate Edition (+$60) - everything above: base game + deluxe pack + season pass

What's amazing is that unlike previous product segmentation, Ubisoft has decided to strip the generally cosmetic and in-game digital items from the Deluxe out of the Gold Edition. This means if you want the Deluxe in-game items, buying the Gold Edition is not enough. You'll have to buy the priciest Ultimate Edition.

Which Deal to Get?

Now that you know the edition break-downs, which version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey should you pick up? The best deal for Standard PC Uplay copy is currently at Razer Game Store for $48.28 (after using 10% off coupon). At 20% off, this is a great deal for release week. If you're positive you'll be playing Season Pass content - Gold Edition at $80 is also a decent price, especially as you'll be receiving the 3-day early access as well.

As for the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition? We'd suggest staying away - least we encourage Ubisoft (and the rest of the industry) to continue this pricing strategy for in-game digital items. At the end of the day though, if you're a big Assassin's Creed fan and you have the disposable income, at the very least you can reap up to $24 in savings by using the deals listed above.
