Here's your guide to pre-ordering Assassin's Creed Odyssey and snagging its special editions
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is well on its way, and pre-orders are already live for the game. The latest addition to the series launches on Oct. 5 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, and interested players can pick up four different versions before the game comes out.
At the moment, all but one special edition is available for pre-order, with the biggest and priciest still to be made available. For now, here's every available edition for Assassin's Creed Odyssey—and how you can save the most money on picking up the game before it launches.
While Assassin's Creed Odyssey has special editions available for interested fans, versions such as the Collector's Edition have multiple iterations that players can pick up. The bigger—and pricier—editions don't necessarily come with all content available from the less expensive versions, either. Deluxe Edition and Gold Edition content, for example, are separate from one another.
All pre-orders for Assassin's Creed Odyssey come with early access to "The Blind King" mission, even for the game's Standard Edition. Any special editions containing the Gold Edition receive early access to Odyssey, along with the game's season pass. So if you're interested in taking a journey to Greece, here's each edition separated by its various installments.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Deluxe Edition comes with the Kronos Gear Pack, the Herald of Dusk Gear Pack, boosts for players' XP and Drachma, and the Carpicornus Naval Pack. Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Deluxe Edition retails for $79.99 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Edition comes with the game's season pass, promising free downloads for upcoming DLC along with the "Secrets of Greece" mission. But most impressive of all, the Gold Edition also comes with early access to Assassin's Creed Odyssey on Oct. 2. The Gold Edition is available for $99.99 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Gold Steelbook Edition
There's also an additional Gold Edition which comes with all the same content as the base Gold Edition, but also features an Assassin's Creed Odyssey steelbook. That version, called the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Steelbook Edition, is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at $109.99.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey features an Ultimate Edition as well, with all content available from both the Gold and Deluxe Editions combined. That means players can enjoy the game on Oct. 2, three days earlier than the rest of the world, while also earning the additional XP boosts and bonus content packs available from purchasing the Deluxe Edition.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Collector's Edition comes with "The Blind King" mission and the "Secrets of Greece" mission. It's also split into three different versions: the Pantheon Edition, the Spartan Edition, and the Kassandra Edition
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Spartan Collector's Edition is a hefty package in its own right. It comes with all Deluxe Edition content, the "Secrets of Greece" mission, the steelbook, an art book, an in-game map, the game's season pass, the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Edition, and a 1/6 size Alexios Figure at 15.55 inches tall.
The Pantheon Edition is the most expensive special edition package available for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The Pantheon Edition comes with Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gold Edition, the game's season pass, a lithograph, a game map, a steelbook, the game's official soundtrack, both the Alexios figure and an 11.22 in tall 1/6 scale enemy figure, the game's art book, all Deluxe Edition content, and the "Secrets of Greece" mission. And, of course, you can start playing on Oct. 2.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Pantheon Collector's Edition costs $219.99 and will be available for pre-order for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Last but not least, GameStop has the exclusive Assassin's Creed Odyssey Collector's Edition Kassandra Edition. The Kassandra Edition comes with the steelbook, the season pass, the "Secrets of Greece" mission, the game's Gold Edition, and a nine inch statue of Kassandra, the game's female main character. Players get to start playing on Oct. 2, and this version will cost you $149.99. Pick it up for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Where to Pre-Order

Ubisoft Official Store
Let's face it, Assassin's Creed Odyssey has so many special editions that it can be a little confusing. Your preferred PC special edition release may not be available at GaneStop right away, or Amazon may be missing your platform's Ultimate Edition, causing some headaches. So if you're eager to pre-order with a retailer that has nearly every edition ready for order across platforms, just go directly with Assassin's Creed's publisher: Ubisoft.
The Ubisoft Official Store has each special edition for Assassin's Creed Odyssey neatly laid out, letting you pick and choose between special editions for pre-order. Plus, if you have 100 or more Ubisoft Club units sitting in your account, you can use these for a 20 percent storewide discount—saving you some cash on your pre-order.
Last but not least, there's one reason to order Assassin's Creed Odyssey from GameStop: the Kassandra Edition. If you're interested in grabbing an exclusive Collector's Edition that comes with a figurine dedicated to Kassandra, go ahead and pre-order the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Collector's Edition Kassandra Edition at GameStop. This edition is available for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at $149.99.
