I'm new to gaming.

Everyone, not just UBI, entices you to pre-order by offering bonuses.

Is there ever a situation where you can't buy that 'special pre- order whatever later?

Thank you

Yes, usually you only get the special offer if you preorder. A lot of times they send you a secondary code which unlocks the special stuff, so if you don't preorder, you don't get the code.

The majority of the time, no. Every now and then a pre order exclusive comes up but it's generally just a cosmetic item.

I think if I remember right, the preorder islands for Black Flag were later unlocked, or made unlockable using the uPlay points that you earn by playing.

Honestly unless it's a collectible figurine or something, the preorder "extras" aren't even worth it. Usually in AC games they call them "Missions" but are nothing but extra mapspace with enemies and collectibles. No scripted scenes you just run around collecting the things. The preorder weapons are usually low to mid-grade or more for cosmetic value.
