Ubisoft Won't Include Physical Games In Collector's Editions For Upcoming Xbox One Titles

Ubisoft has made a change to the Collector’s editions on Xbox for three of its most anticipated games. If you pre-ordered the Collector’s editions for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, or Far Cry 6 on Xbox, you will now receive a digital copy of the game rather than a physical edition.

In a short post announcing the change, Ubisoft didn’t provide a reason, but it could be related to Xbox’s Smart Delivery feature, which grants access to select games on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Essentially, you buy a game once to play on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. All three of these Ubisoft titles support Smart Delivery, so there’s only one Collector’s edition for each game that will be compatible with both Xbox consoles.



The change doesn’t apply to PS4 versions of the Collector’s editions, which will still come with physical games. Just like on Xbox, you’ll be able to play your PlayStation pre-order on both the PS4 and PS5–though the box art for the game will be PS4.

The pricey Collector’s editions for Far Cry 6 ($200), Watch Dogs: Legion ($190), and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla ($200) are sold exclusively at the Ubisoft Store. Unfortunately, the only one remaining in stock is Watch Dogs: Legion. For more on all of the editions that are still up for grabs, make sure to check out our pre-order guides for Far Cry 6, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
