Assassin's Creed Syndicate's four special editions detailed

Missions! A figure! A hip flask! More.

Assassin's Creed games are known for releasing with a rainbow of special editions, each with their own contents and collector's items.

This year's London-based adventure Assassin's Creed Syndicate continues this trend, and, as you'd expect, also sports a season pass and extra missions if you pre-order.

Put your money down now for any edition - even the standard one - and you get the Darwin and Dickens Conspiracy Mission, which sees main character Jacob Frye defend the two historical figures in around an hour's worth of extra gameplay.

Ubisoft's official site lists the Standard Edition for £49.99, and the Gold Edition for £69.99, which includes the game's season pass and an exclusive Baker Street outfit.

Now, onto the more lavish options.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate's The Rooks Edition offers a second extra mission - Runaway Train - plus an artbook, soundtrack, double-sided London map and exclusive collector's box.

It costs £59.99, slightly cheaper than the Gold Edition, but it doesn't include the game's season pass.

Next up is the Assassin's Creed Syndicate Charing Cross Edition, which includes the Runaway Train mission, artbook, soundtrack and map, plus its own exclusive box and a 26cm figurine of Jacob. It costs £74.99 and doesn't include the season pass, either.

Finally, there's the Assassin's Creed Syndicate Big Ben Edition. It includes the Runaway Train mission, artbook, soundtrack, map, another special box and an even more extravagant version of the Jacob figurine, standing against a set of clock machinery.

Other exclusive items include a FuturePak case, "premium" hip flask with Assassin's Creed branding and an exclusive numbered lithograph. The Big Ben Edition costs a bell-ringing £114.99, but does include the season pass.

Got all that?
