Ubisoft has put together a super-special edition of Assassin's Creed III that will be auctioned off for the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation.

That's a lotta stuff!

Sometimes, we get a bit sick of all the different editions of games with their respective pre-order bonuses and what have you, but this Assassin's Creed III definitely gets a thumbs up.

Ubisoft has put together just 10 of the packs — in the whole world — and will be auctioning off eight of them on eBay, with proceeds going to the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick.

The first auction starts today, and runs for five days (subsequent auctions will only be three days), with the final one happening on 15 December.

So, what's in the edition? A lot! For a start, it all comes in a custom-made trunk, but the full list of goodies is:

  • Assassin's Creed III backpack satchel

  • Assassin's Creed III tomahawk USB key

  • Assassin's Creed III steel postcard

  • Assassin's Creed III notebook

  • Assassin's Creed III belt buckle

  • Assassin's Creed III wristband

  • Assassin's Creed III iron-on patch

  • Assassin's Creed III steel book

  • Assassin's Creed III lead figurines

  • Assassin's Creed III tomahawk keychain

  • Assassin's Creed III liberation keychain

  • Sony PS3 ULC — Captain of the Aquila, Colonial Assassin, Red Coat Multiplayer Pack

  • Sony PS Vita ULC — Mysteries of the Bayou

  • Assassin's Creed III: Liberation for Vita

  • Assassin's Creed III: Freedom Edition.

And just so we're clear, that's the full Freedom Edition, which features the following:

  • A 24cm high-quality figurine of Connor

  • Steel book case art drawn by award-winning comic artist Alex Ross

  • George Washington's notebook

  • One exclusive Lithograph

  • Bonus single-player mission: Lost Mayan Ruins

  • Bonus single-player mission: Ghost of War

  • Bonus multiplayer package: The Sharpshooter.

We asked Ubisoft what's happening with the other two not being auctioned off, and the company let us know that it's keeping them up its sleeves for photo shoots and the like. It will either use them as giveaways or end up auctioning them off anyway.
