Italian retail site Multiplayer.com briefly put up a shot of a “Join or Die” Edition for Assassin’s Creed III (see shot below)
There has been no official word from Ubisoft on any special retail editions of the game as yet, but this may have some merit. The “Join Or Die” slogan is exactly the same seen in the Limited Edition Assassin’s Creed III notebook, originally posted by Ubisoft’s Nordic arm on Facebook (see second shot below) Those who know their history will remember it as the popular political cartoon created by Benjamin Franklin, and first published in 1754. Benjamin Franklin is one of the supporting characters confirmed to be in Assassin’s Creed III.
We’ve asked Ubisoft for comment, and will report back if we get any clarification. As mentioned earlier, the original shot on Multiplayer.com has since been pulled. Check it out for yourself.
