Update 10/25/13: AC4: Black Flag is now 25% off vs the previously reported 20% off! Grab it for $45 at Gamefly with coupon GFDOCT25 — the Gold Edition which is bundled with Season Pass is also available for $50 after coupon.

Assassin’s Creed … or maybe we should call it Assassin’s Greed (ba dum tsh)? We’re only a few weeks away from the Oct. 29 release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on consoles, and release-day DLCs plus preorder deals are aplenty.

If ye be an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Wii U owner, you’re stuck paying the full $59.99 price tag for the game, but for LAN lubbers, the PC download is 20% off after coupon at GameFly, dropping the price to $47.99. That’s $12 fewer than the $59.99 you’d have to fork out for the download on Uplay or for the console games — although the PC version does release much later on Nov. 19.

The same GameFly coupon also takes 20% off 25% off Black Flag’s Season Pass and the Gold Edition. The Season Pass will include an exclusive Kraken Ship Pack, another single-player story, and more multiplayer maps and character options. The Gold Edition includes the aforementioned Season Pass, plus all the preorder DLC bonuses offered on the console versions. That’s more than six DLCs plus the exclusive Aveline Pack that’s only otherwise available on the PS3 and PlayStation 4.

Earlier this Tuesday, both Borderlands 2 and Dishonored launched their Game of the Year editions. Both include the base game and most of the later-released DLC. Like with Black Flag, if you want to pay less than full price, you’ll need to buy on the PC. Borderlands 2 GOTY starts at $59.99, but a 25% off coupon at Green Man Gaming drops the game to $45 (a $15 savings). For Dishonored GOTY, the price starts at $39.99 but falls to $31.99 after a 20% off coupon at GameFly.
