All that for the low low price of $800!

Just kidding. I didn't get it.

It would be cool if they sold that art book separately. Back to the original point: $800 is insane for a video game. Is everything laced with gold? Do I win a trip to Egypt? Can I get a replica of the shield Bayek carries? Throw those in, and you can justify a $500 price tag (maybe).

The sad thing is, people actually have money to spend for things like this, and that behavior contributes to more ridiculous offers.

I was just about to ask if the game case was made of solid gold, haha.

All 999 copies of this are now officially sold-out. Holy crap.

Damnit. I got sucked in. For the first time since ACIII, I have preordered a video game.

The Gold Steelbook edition is only $88 For Amazon Prime members, which is less than the standard + season pass later... oh well. Now I wait.

I also got Oliver Bowden's origins prequel novel coming this week to temporarlily quench my thirst. He wrote the Hayhtham-centric novel Forsaken.

Yeah, same, it was legitimately just too good of a deal to pass by. Reading Desert Oath right now, it's really cool! There's not much Assassin-y stuff in it, for obvious reasons, but there are plenty of little hints that you'll read and be like "ohh I know exactly what that means~"
