They will always try to deliver it on the day of release or before.

Probably, yes. PostNL and TNT are usually quite reliable when it comes to delivering packages and especially in this case, because release is on a weekday. Just make sure someone's home to receive the package, else it'll either be delivered to the neighbors or they'll try again the next day (and if they still can't deliver it then, you'll have pick it up from the post office the (week)day after that).

That happens sometimes if you're lucky. They'll always try to deliver it on or before the day of release, so if they can't deliver everything on release day they'll start delivering early.

There are no more post offices.

Also, I believe PostNL and TNT are the same?

I wasn't sure so I just used both names. Either way you shouldn't worry too much. I did have that problem when I pre-ordered Halo: Reach, but if you want to be sure you could always ask your neighbors if they'll be there just to make sure.

I'm not worrying.
I pre-ordered the normal edition. I don't have enough money to waste it on the Animus edition. Paying almost double the price just for a book which the information from will end up online anyway? Heh.

I was just saying there are no more post offices.. since... last week, I believe.
Instead, there are now certain stores and other establishments where you can send and collect packages.

I preordered from HMV UK last year, for Brotherhood. It didn't come till 1 week afterwards.

We complained, were told there's nothing they can do about it, they simply tried their best but couldn't meet demand and stock was short.

Bearing in mind, I got sick of waiting by day 2 I went to HMV myself, and bought a copy myself (from the massive stock in store)

This year I've went with Play.com, anyone had any experience with them? Early? Late?

I ordered the Codex Edition on my birthday (December 3rd) and it wasn't even dispatched until the 6th. I think it didn't arrive until the 8-9th, so yeah, it was late by a few days. Then again it may have been shipped, but I doubt it seeing as they should have warehouses in the UK.

I had to order the Collector's Edition from them this time around as well, seeing as you need to have PayPal to buy it from Ubisoft's own store.

The provider will always try and get your order to you on day of release. I got ACB the day before the release date last year as it arrived early. When i ordered infamous 2, i got it about 3 days late.
Depends who you order from and where abouts you are and their estimate to get it to you.

Game are normally pretty good for pre-orders. Play however, are not. For me at least.

What about Ubisoft, if I bought from their online store (I'm from the UK by the way.) I've a vauge memory of them saying it's going to be dispatched on the 11th, but will it be dispatched from Canada? Because that'll be like a 2 week wait...Last year Amazon got it me a day early, hoping it'll be here on time or a dayearly this year too!

I'm from the US, and I really understand what the OP is saying. Sometimes my stuff in the mail get lost. So I was royally ****ed with EA once because my pre-ordered game didn't get through. SO I had to download it on their credit. But anyways, what I do now is neither download online (If it's the sims) but if it's a PS3 game, I just go and preorder it from my local gamestop. Easier and I just go get it. No problems at all since I done this.

I am wondering when it will arrive from Ubisoft too. I ordered the Animus edition for PS3 from them but on my order status it says it will be delivered after 31/12/2011!! I have emailed customer services and they have told me that when the item is available to the public my order will be fulfilled and posted...when ever that may be!
If its coming from Canada I guess I can expect an even longer wait! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

For those of you who ordered from Ubisofts online store and are wondering where your game will be coming from, if you log into the site with your order number and password you can view your invoice and it tells you. Mines coming from Luxembourg and i live in the UK, so it should arrive on release day (i hope lol).

My Black + White Editions of ACII arrived the day before official release, while my Codex Edition for Brotherhood arrived on the day. If you ordered from UbiShop, you should get it on release day if not before - my order page says it's going to be dispatched on the 11th, which gives it quite a few days grace to get here by the 15th.

If not from there, practically all online game stores ship a few days before release in order for them to arrive on release day, so it's most likely you will. You never know, you might even get it a day early.

Hi

I hope someone will be able to answer my query as I am eager to receive my copy on release day.

I ordered my Animus Edition from Ubishop on the 16th July as at that time this was the only supplier offering a pre-order of this edition, I have just checked my invoice and it says "This order will be shipped after the release date of 11/11/2011 for Assassin’s Creed® Revelations - Animus Edition."
when I click on View Invoice it says my payment was made to Digital River in Luxembourg, this does not mean that it will ship from Luxembourg as Digital River that I have used previously as they are an eCommerce company used by many retailers (mcafee, ea, microsoft).
Does anyone else's give a different shipping date and when did you pre-order??
Would be good if you pasted the actual wording...

I really hope mine arrives as both my codex Brotherhood arrived from Play and other games from hmv/ game arrived prior to release

Mr_Shade
11-04-2011, 01:05 PM
Any questions about shipping of the games, needs to really be directed to the company you ordered from.

If not, you may be disappointed if you take other peoples personal experiences as gospel.

Remember as well, that some other stores may ship early, but hold at your local delivery depot, for delivery on the day of release.


Game.co.uk do this for most large releases, as an example.

Well, speaking for myself, I ordered mine off of the Ubi store, but I remember seeing something about the 11th? Is this the dispatch date? And if I'm from UK will it have to come over-seas?

No one on the forums, will have access to your order details - so you need to speak directly with the store.

As I posted - you need to speak to the store you ordered from..
Following Mr_Shades advice I contacted UbiSoft as that is the store I bought it from - Nowhere else sold the Animus edition at the time

This is the response I Got

Dear xxxxxxxxx (took my name out!),

Thank you for contacting the Ubisoft Store.

The product that you ordered is a pre-order and has not yet been
released to the public.

Although we do not have an estimated release date, as soon as it is
available your order will be promptly fulfilled and you will be notified
via email.

If you purchased via credit card, rest assured your card will not be
charged until the product has been released.

Sincerely,

Depends which platform you bought it for, people who bought the PC version obviously won't get a notice until a week before it's release date, which as of right now, could be anywhere between 15th of november and next march.

I just checked Gamestop.co.uk, and for the PC version, it says "Preorder ships 09/12/2011"

I hope the Animus Edition comes on release date. This is the first time i've ordered from Ubisoft and Currently when i check my order it says - This order will be shipped after the release date of 15/11/2011 for £10 Voucher.

But if i click on view invoice it says down the bottom - You will be able to retrieve your invoice – with a qualified electronic signature - as a pdf document in a few hours.
I hope this is a sign that it will be dispatched in a couple of hours.
