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.

    Why?

  • Zanard Bell

    That’s ugly as fuck.

  • mewnani

    Well they gotta get people to buy their crummy game SOMEHOW.

  • Nagato

    Rather than wasting millions on “advertising” through extremely limited items, they might just as well produce regular and affordable enough versions of them for fans to actually purchase and spread awareness for the game through social media.

    I mean, these shoes don’t seem too awful, logo aside. And the cans from the previous article see decently looking as far as vidya themed ones go. Wouldn’t get ’em myself, but there should surely be a market for all this.

    Of course, not making all these insane expenses in the first place – to the extent that the season pass had to be priced 40 bucks rather than 25 like TW3’s – would’ve been much preferable.

    Oh hell fucking no.

    It’s bad enough that yeezy’s are ugly as fuck, anyway. Now you’re putting them with a game that thought it was a GOOD idea to make gold headphones.

    AYO

    bathroom slippers. with laces.

  • goodbyejojo

    ugly ass shoes, like somebody put socks over flipflops

  • Madbrainbox

    That’s the ugliest pair of shoes I ever laid my eyes on.It must be a particular skill to create something that ugly.

  • Mechonis

    Shoes fit for a Kang

  • nine_ball

    Are those things made of fucking yarn and cheap rubber? Because they certainly look like they are. And who the fuck would buy 18K gold headphones? Why would you waste money making those fucking things? There are so many more practical things that could go towards, like QA so this AC doesn’t also end up a buggy mess, for example.

  • MoeIsLife

    Oh my gosh. I literally burst out laughing. Thanks for making my evening dude.

    KANGZ N SHIET!

  • John Smith

    for that price they better have been hand made by kangs

  • ProfessorFluffy

    My only interest in these sneakers is seeing how much they’ll end up selling for on EBAY.

  • Ithaca TrenchGun
  • James Hewitson
  • Bitterbear

    I wonder if you can walk through walls with them.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Looks like a toddler can rip those to shreds.

  • alterku

    I’m going to have to ask you to hol’ up.

  • alterku

    What better way to pretend your ancestors weren’t professional dick-washers than by wearing overpriced shoes.

  • ProxyDoug

    Can’t skip the tradition of bringing up their horrible fashion sense along with every new game.

  • those are the ugliest thing I’ve seen
