Hey guys, I pre-ordered the game from ubi.com. Now, as most of you know. Europe gets the game 3 days later, but I was wondering. Since I pre-ordered from UBI's official website, do I get it on the US date, which is 3 days before, or do I get it on the EU date, which is 3 days later?

And to be totally sure, do I even get it on launch day?

Thanks in advance

yours will ship for the release of the region you live in, as for getting it on the day it is released it dependent on the shipping that you chose.

Most of the time when you pre-order a game you will get it a day before release (i'm hoping I get it on the 15th, as it comes out 3 days later here in the uk http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )

@ colt122

Some stores get the games say about a week and a half before release, I have a friend who already has CoD 4 due to one of his friends working at a store called 'GAME'

He will also be able to get AC before it is released in the US, I think he can get it on the 9th :O

yeah theres a lot of stores that break street dates, not intentionally but more as a employee not paying attention and puts them on shelf soon as the get them, example a lot of toy's r us stores in the US were selling Bioshock like 5-6 days early.

Not before me mate lol, I would go round but he lives in the Lake District and its about a 2 hour drive from were I live http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

anyways, heres hoping they mess up the pre-orders and send them a week early, it could happen due to the stuff happening with the post and all that here in the UK.

I'll be upset to if anything happens, been waiting for AC since it was first heard of in the tokyo game show in 2005!

My Sympathy to you about LAIR aswell, but is it really worth it? I heard its not all that good and the controls are a bit slow

Anyways what is the cover of the AC case like, i'm still not sure as theres that many going round, and I haven't been to game in a while.

Is it just the one with Altair standing in the middle of the case and the name underneath him?

I've got a case for it.

It's really nothing flashy. It's just the picture thats on wikipedia, and on the back it has four oldish screenshots and that non sense that is on the about section on the website.

It wasnt that bad, When I first played it the controls were mad! Never really played a game b4 using the sixaxis. but once I got the hang of it, it was really good http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I kinda finished the game really fast tho lol http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif. my rating of it 8/10, the graphics was ace http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

To OP:
I used ubisoft own shop for this game and naruto. Naruto was shipped 2 days before EU release. (so with express option i had it 1 day early)

So you should have it EU release day or 1 day earlier (depending on which option you chose for mail time)

there was a free option and a pay option. I chose pay option

thats the one costing about 10(close to 15 euro) i think. Which is express, which toke 1 day from French to Denmark.

So there is a good chance you get it 1 day before EU release. (i choose free, because lacked money for express. But free one should still be here by release. So i am more then happy)
