Ubisoft is going all out with their ridiculously expensive merchandise to commemorate the upcoming release for Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
Between an $800 collector’s edition and $59,000 18K gold headphones, they’ve gone a step further and got the infamous Kanye West and his Yeezy brand of sneakers to produce an extremely limited pair of sneakers. How rare? Only 16 pairs will be made in the world, and they’re not even available for purchase.
Designed by sneaker artist Dominic Lowman and coming in both white and black tones, Ubisoft will relegate divvying out these super rare sneakers in free giveaways. The publisher noted that details will be announced shortly, so we’ll keep you guys posted.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins launches across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 27th. In case you missed it, you can find my exclusive hands-on video preview demo for the game from this year’s E3 here.
