The EU Charing Cross Edition is the one North America is getting. I'd get the Big Ben one if it was available in the US. Alas, it's not and I'm not paying ridiculous prices on eBay to import it. But I still might get this one...maybe.

The North America edition doesn't come with the Runaway Train mission unfortunetly according to the Ubishop main page.

Retailer plan on getting any of them or just sticking with Gold and Standard?

This is what I have been trying to find out. I even contacted Ubisoft support, and they led me here with the reply of

"At this time the Collector's Edition of the Assassin's Creed: Syndicate game is only available through the Uplay Shop Online Store. You may find more information about the release of the Collector's Edition through Gamestop by checking the Ubisoft Forums. When that information is made available it will be posted there first. You can also contact Gamestop's support and see if they have any information about the ability to pre-order that edition through their store.

http://forums.ubi.com/

Thank you"

I ask because I have pre-ordered/purchased every Collector's Edition for the North American Assassin's Creed games that I can at Gamestop. This not only allows me to get any pre-order bonuses, but guarantees that I can get the game as I do not have to pay for it all at once and I can budget savings from my paychecks to pay it off.

I would hate to have to make a choice between getting the Collector's Edition and not getting the Gamestop exclusive pre-order bonus, the Shilling Necklace.

Unless I pre-order at Gamestop, I might not even be able to purchase the Collector's Edition at all due to not being able to pay over time.

I really hope that this is made available to pre-order in store, and that the information is posted here quickly.

Last year was the first time I ordered from the Ubisoft shop and I must say I was very disappointed. It arrived almost a week after release, and had slight damage to the box. I'll be ordering from Gamestop this year, they deliver it well packaged and either before or on release day.

The UK already has 3 boxed sets and North America has only Charing Cross, which is different from the UK version of Charing Cross.
Is there ever going to be an explanation as to why there's always such a great inequality? What is so difficult about getting
the same editions?

I would like to know this as well. Every year its the same thing and nothing is ever done about it. It's like we have to push with media force like AC3.

What is so difficult about getting the same editions?You won't get any straight answers from Ubisoft about why we get 1 edition of their games and the EMEA gets several editions. Myself and others have been arguing over this since the AC2 Black Edition to no avail, so we just gave up arguing over this because they wore us down. Ubisoft won and North America lost. With our version of the Charing Cross Edition the only difference I see, we get the season pass, they get an extra mission, the Runaway Train, we get our soundtrack digitally, theirs is a physical disk. I guess this is a small step in the right direction, at least our CE finally gets a name instead of a generic name. Now if only they'd give us something like the Big Ben Edition and everything will be right in the world.

Well Ubisoft has done it again they made another much better Collectors edition for my friends across the pond. Once again I will haft to pay a mint on Ebay just so I can have the slighty more expensive edition. Its 49 Euro more now probably will haft to pay 200-300 just to get the statue.:mad:

Why do they release different editions only for certain countries?

I wonder if this PURE A R T S statue is unfinished cause the detail seems a little less then their norm when it comes the UBI collectible and CE lines.

If you consider the Arno CE looking close to CGI/concept art. Jacob's shirt is just green without the pattern or the indents on his coat collar. I hope the attention to detail they usually do is shown in this statue cause its stance and style are quickly becoming one of my favs.

You really think it's worth paying a lot more money to buy it on eBay preowned and for a hefty price, than settling for the far cheaper and still good Collector's Edition that you can get?

At the end of the day, it's just a small figurine

I was looking at the Mexican and Brazilian Uplay stores, and they don't even get the Charing Cross Edition, all they get are the Standard and Gold Editions. You also got to remember is not all of Europe can get the Big Ben Edition either. So we're not the only ones that Ubisoft excludes from the millionaire's club. It's sad, but it kind of reminds me of a segregated America.

Hi! I have a few questions. First off, I live in North America

The best edition from what I seen is the Big Ben edition. I really like the steel case for the game instead of the standard one. Anyhow, looking at all the posts, there's no chance of me being able to preorder this in NA is there?

Also, I could only preorder the Charing Cross edition on uplay? I can't preorder it at gamestop yet? Is that correct? I saw that the Charring Cross edition was only available at Ireland's Gamestop.
Sorry if my questions are dumb, but I am a bit confused.
Thank you!

AND the better statue..... guess ill just be getting the standard edition, a month after release to make sure it's not a buggy crapfest like unity was at first. Hell Unity's still annoying, and I just started playing it.... minute and a half loading screens every time I fast travel (on PS4).... seriously, after like 8 games you couldn't make that faster?

Hi, to try to answer your questions, NA is not getting the Big Ben Edition, Ubisoft for some reason does not want more money from NA, so we only get a modifed version of the Charing Cross Edition. I say modified because we do not get the Runaway Train mission, (which I was really hoping we would get as soon as I heard about trains in the game), and our soundtrack is an MP3 download, the UK Edition has an actual disc.

As of now, the NA Collector's Edition is a Ubishop exclusive. I have contacted both Ubisoft and Gamestop, and the only responce I got was from Ubisoft telling me to contact Gamestop, unfortunetly, Gamestop has not responded to me yet.

I hope to be able to pre-order at Gamestop as well, I have pre-ordered/purchased every Collector's Edition for the North American Assassin's Creed games that I can at Gamestop. This not only allows me to get any pre-order bonuses, but guarantees that I can get the game as I do not have to pay for it all at once and I can budget savings from my paychecks to pay it off.

Irelands Gamestop is seperate from NA Gamestop.

Your questions are not dumb, it is a shame that this confusion exists, as it did with me. If there was one or two Collector's Edition's available to all markets, there would not be any problem, and Ubisoft would probably make more money, I know they would get more of mine.

I check Gamestops website several times a day to see if there is any updates:

I'd actually prefer the digital download of the soundtrack, which I already know I'm not getting, since I'm buying The Rooks Limited Edition. I'm not really interested in boxes and figurines, etc. Nor do I have the room for any of it. As for pre-order bonuses, things here in Portugal are a mess: unless the codes are brought inside the limited edition game box, there's no guarantee we'll ever get anything. Just as an example, I pre-ordered Project CARS, and I didn't get the pre-order bonus car pack. The game store staff is supposed to be responsible for distributing these codes to whomever pre-orders, but I didn't get anything.

Stuff like this is why I think it would be best if there were just 2 or 3 editions available globally so everyone knew exactly what they were getting and were getting the same thing. It sucks that the pre-order codes aren't always packaged in for you. It is still that way sometimes in NA, however Gamestop has been trying to fix that, and fix the employees not giving the codes, by having them automatically print on the receipts when the game is fully purchased. It has really helped.

Speaking of codes, I hope Ubisoft ditches the expiration dates on their codes, or at least extend them for a long time. I picked up the CE of Brotherhood new several months after it was released, and by the time I got to play it, all the codes in it had expired, so i didn't get to play any of the bonus levels.

Have fun.

Exactly, limited editions should be all accountable, so we could know for sure what we'd get from any of those. The alternative of getting the pre-order codes printed on the receipt, is awesome, but I haven't seen that being applied in my country. The only exception of course, is the PSN codes, which are now given to us that way. Another serious issue with the current system, that is, the store staff being responsible for informing and supplying the codes to whomever pre-orders, is the fact that some workers don't actually inform the customers, especially if they're not aware of anything, and therefore are left with extra codes to offer to their friends or even sell in the black market.

No, I got Unity from them last year and it arrived a week after release, and it was damaged. Needless to say I won't be ordering from them again anytime soon. I used to order from Gamestop and will be going back to them this year. Never had a problem with them, and they delivered on or before release date.

Really? Last year I ordered from the gamestop store because I lived near one, so I got Unity on release date by going to the store and grabbing it. But this year I am somewhere else and there is no gamestop store near me, so I was kinda worried about buying online and not receiving it soon enough. Guess I'll just order from them then :)
Thanks for the tip.

Hi, Ubisoft, I was just wondering why Europe always gets better special editions of AC games, than North America. I have been underwhelmed by the NA Collector's editions of the past few games, and am considering not buying the NA CE of AC: Syndicate. If the Big Ben Edition were available here I would buy it without question, even if it were a little more expensive. How is it fair that EU customers get all the same collectibles as us, plus an upgraded statue, and more physical bonuses, plus the season pass, while we don't even have a choice to get these items? How is it that a company, that worth as much as you are, can't get the same edition for all fans who want to buy it? My only option to get the collectibles I want, is to get a friend in the UK to buy it, reimburse them, and then pay to have the game shipped to NA. How is that fair for your customers in NA? I simply want the Big Ben Edition, is that too much to ask? As a customer who has regularly bought the collector's editions, even though every one of them has been inferior to the EU editions I figured that eventually we would get the better one, but it still hasn't happened. I feel like this is a slap in the face to my brand loyalty, especially when I continue to pre-order your games, despite their many faults and glitches at launch.

We've been waiting for an answer to that question for the last 8 years.

There is a good chance that it is sold out then.


Please check the details for your region in the first post.

It is not exactly clear about that one thing atleast to me

Correct me if I am wrong, but all these pre-order bonuses (extra missions) - aren't they available later in the online shop and wouldn't it be a better deal to wait until the game is cheaper (after the first hype) and upgrade it online?

I don't want to spend another 80 EUR on a collector's box, I do not appreciate enough after all, just to be the first to play. And I don't do youtube videos of my gameplays, so I am not in a rush to upload guidances to earn clicks to cover the investment.

Good point ;) That's usually what I do.

My AC2 trilogy and AC1 (be cursed!) were very cheap. Each game for either 9 or 19 euro at a sell-out.

For some reason I started to rush to have every game early since AC III. But it feels shallow and it is really costly.

I hope the forum snipers don't get me for this one but I was wondering if there was any drawback to ordering the Big Ben edition and having my buddy who lives in Wales ship it to me in the U.S.

I guess my main concern would be the dlc compatability. I've read mixed information online. Some say there will be no issue playing the game and some say the dlc is region locked. So I'm seeking a more definite answer here.

Thx!

Why is the Syndicate collectors edition not available anywhere but the ubi store? I have purchased every collectors edition from best buy. Why is this game not going to be sold there? Is this the new policy that collectors editions are only available from ubi store?

Nope, there is no problem except the time it'll take to arrive at his house, and then to arrive at yours.

The biggest CE edition was always Ubi store exclusive. If you want the Big Ben edition, you have to buy there. The Rooks edition is available on amazon though, I just checked.

Not real happy with AC Syndicate only being available from the UPlay store. I've purchased every single CE for AC that has ever released and this will possibly be the first one that I don't buy. Not only can I not buy at Best Buy and get my normal gamer discount and BB points, Ubisoft now wants me to pay an additional $15 of shipping to get it shipped and arrive on the day of release. That is absurd. Any chance that Gamestop or BB will be selling this at some point?

No mate, the biggest CE version always was and always will be Ubi exclusive. It was like this for every game. If you want to get from another retailer you have to get a smaller version. The Rooks one is available on amazon, not sure about Best Buy or GameStop.

Not in the states. We get different CEs in the states. We've always got a CE with a figure and this time around, we get either the standard, or the version with a season pass. That's it. There is no Rooks edition on Amazon in the states either. So my only option this time around would be to go through Ubisoft and pay $40 more than I normally would if I were able to buy it at Best Buy.

Eh, yes, even in the states. The Biggest CE was ALWAYS Ubi exclusive. You guys always got the second-tier one, which is available in many retailers. On Unity, for example, you had the equivalent to the Notre Damme edition. The biggest one, the Guillotine Edition, was only Ubi store. So the actual issue, is that they didn't make an alternative US CE edition, not that they made the BIg Ben edition Ubi exclusive. I do get your point though, it's really weird that they went this way for Syndicate, but beeing this near to the release, I doubt they'll change anything. You will unfortunately have to pay the extra 40 if you want a CE edition :nonchalance:

Need some help guys, which is the best edition to get for me?

I want the Season Pass & A collectors version of the game.

I know the Big Ben edition includes both but it's way to expensive for me.

Any Suggestions?

Sorry, I meant we don't get the Rooks edition on Amazon in the States.

As far as I can tell, we have three options for retail copies:



Standard Retail Edition - Game Only
Gold Edition - Game + Season Pass
Collector's Edition - Game + Season Pass + Jacob Figurine + Poster + Artbook + Soundtrack


1 + 2 I can get at any retailer, but 3 is only at Ubi store. It's just a bummer. Now that I think about it, I don't think ACB or ACRev had CEs in store with figurines but since I already had Ezio from AC2 CE I guess I didnt' worry about it back then.

ACB and ACR didn't have CEs with figurines even in europe as far as I know.


So... Which edition did you get? I got the Charing Cross :)

I got the same, I don't really like the Big Ben's figurine with those gears behind Jacob.

The only colletor's edition that comes with the season pass included is the Big Ben one. If you want both in one package, you don't have another choice. You could get a smaller CE and buy the season pass separately if you preffer, but I think it'll be almost the same price as just paying for the Big Ben one.

PS4 is generally region free, so any version you buy from amazon should play on your version. There's no R1 or R2 for PS4.

Physical copies are region free, but digital things are not. So if you buy from the US, you'll be able to play the game with any account, but you will have to make an US PSN account in order to activate and download the season pass content.

So it means that as long as I get the physical copy along with the season pass content, then I should be fine then?

Uh, yea, but not only that, it also means that if you get the digital content (season pass) from the US, you will have to use a US PSN account to activate and download it. If you try to activate it using an account from another country, it will not accept the code you have, because it is region locked. That is no big issue though, you can create a new PSN account in less than 5 minutes anyway, if you don't already have an american account.

You don't need to reset the PS4 though! My PS4 is configured for Germany but a friend of mine gave me a French code, and I just needed to create a french account and make the login on the PS4 with it instead of my usual one, no reset required.

yup, once again NA buyers don't even have the choice of buying their top end collector's edition.
They do this EVERY freaking year and it's seriously frustrating and makes no sense to me

One company does it the opposite of the rest. The US gets so much exclusive gaming and other markets stuff its hard to feel sympathy.

I'd like to know if the Runaway Train will be included in the season pass after a period of exclusivity for those that purchased the special editions.

You should be receiving an email from Ubisoft with the code for the Season Pass. If you have not received a code you can contact Ubisoft Support (https://support.ubi.com/) for further help with this issue.
