Hey,

I really want the animus edition, and since i'm only familiar with play.com for pre-ordering (and am quite satisfied), i was wondering, will they get the animus edition? The only thing they've got on there is the collector's edition. If anyone has some more information, thanks in advance

Thanks! how long would it take them to ship it to Belgium, and do you have any idea which courier they use? Is the shipping free?

lol im also from belgium. i ordered the animus edition a few days ago, 80. apparently its 2 days normal express, that was free of charge. if you are going for super express, thats an extra 8, not worth it in my opinion.

I have ordered already before from ubiworkshop, no problems with it.

I'm in France, do you get multilingual versions from ubishop?
I'm used to Play.com to but I only see the collector's edition and no futher details about its contents there

At the moment, i can only see the standard and CE editions. If they add the Animus edition it might not be till August/September

If I can get the English version from Ubishop I'll take it. I hate to play in french.
I really hope that play.com gets the animus edition, as they were the official european retailer for the PC Codex edition for brotherhood. As far as I know, in France only fnac(except online retailers like play.com, ubishop and amazon) had very few of the codex editions, and they were solely in french.

Like darthdeva, i'd prefer the english version too, but on ubishop i can only pick french or dutch, just prefer english manuals, encyclopedia, etc. Any idea how i can set it to english?

As it stands, Play.com do not have the Animus Edition, which is a shame as I've used them to order my ACII Black and ACB Codex Editions... If you want the Animus Edition, check out /www.gamestop.ie/ They're an Irish company, so the games will be in English.

I'm form the Netherlands and have pre-ordered AC II that had a art-book included, that was English but the manual en subs in the game were Dutch.

I think the encyclopedic from Revelations is in English and the game subs en manual is in Dutch.

I hope so! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I too had ordered AC2 Black Edition and AC Brotherhood codex edition from Play.com I am in the UK and have currently pre-ordered the Animus edition from UbiShop but I am worried that it wont arrive on the games actual release date. Does anyone know how long it will take after UK release? I chose standard Delivery for Animus edition on the PS3.

By the way I don't think it will be delayed till March as every AC game till date has been released on time as originally announced and it is always around mid-late November. I doubt UbiSoft would delay it. If they did it would be pretty annoying, I would know since I pre-ordered a copy of Metal Gear Solid Rising almost 2 years ago but it keeps getting pushed forward. Kind of going off topic here but it would never be delayed this much if Hideo Kojima was still in charge of the creation of this game.

Yep. That's what iv'e heard but I would call up Ubisoft because When i was pre ordering Animus Editon from UbiShop it said in the order description "English UK Version" so there may be a way to choose the language. All the orders come from somewhere in Eastern Europe (I cant remember where!) so unless they separate the different languages and just automatically send the language that matches the country of the buyer, you should get a choice but you say still have to ring them up.

I'm not really a PC gamer, more of a PS3 and occasionally xbox 360 and wii, but I recently got a new Desktop with a Windows Experience rating of 7.9, I did the specs myself and its kitted with an Nvidia Geforce GTX 590 and an Intel Core i7 840QM 2nd Gen Overclocked processor. So I was considering trying AC on the PC as well PS3. I have every AC game ever released either on the PS3 or bloodlines on PSP. I have already preordered Animus Edition on PS3, is it worth getting it on PC as well???

I would only buy it for the PC if you have/going to buy a Xbox 360 controller. Because its almost unplayable with mouse and keyboard IMHO http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Edit: I think the PC version will delay just like AC II..

Yeah usually the PC version has a slight graphics improvement. But if you don't have a proper controller, it's quite hard for precise movements in the lairs/tombs on the keyboard and mouse. The Xbox 360 controller is excellent on the pc version of AC games.
But the pc version is gonna probably get delayed as ubisoft haven't officially confirmed if PC is getting released with the console versions, though they said they'll try to do it this time. And the gamestop ads after the trailers showed only xbox and ps3.
Let's hope we get our PC games in November this time

@Yakomori212
I never had any problems playing AC games with keyboard and mouse but if you are more of a console gamer and you own a console, then i do suggest the console version to avoid the possibility of any delays and unless you have a controller for your pc, the controls will take some getting used to

I think the PC version will be released next year. AC I came to the Xbox360/PS3 in November and the PC version delayed to march, AC II and Brotherhood did the same trick.

Ubisoft just don't like PC gamers, mostly for the group that copies their games. Its understandable but not really fair to the people who pay for their games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I have to say that there are always big bugs in the PC versions to, AC I had problems - Throwing you out of the game-, AC II - had the same problems, only the DRM was the problem-, and Splinter Cell Conviction really [edit: swearing removed - do not bypass the swear filter] it up with the Xbox360 gamepad controls.
Sollution was to use thirtparty tools to fix the problem your self....

@ Ubisoft, please don't do this to AC Revelation please http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

At present - all versions are dated for November ...


If you want to take the risk of certain versions selling out, then that is your choice, however at present - it's November...

Not trying to scaremonger - but I would hate to see people miss out for nothing..

Remember that most online stores [in the EU] only bill you when they send the game, so you do not have to pay now - which makes pre-ordering cost free http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Re the Xbox controls for SCC - did you use a wired Xbox 360 pad? - I didn't have any issues with mine?

Nope, I have a Xbox 360 Wireless controller for the PC (its havens to have the freedom to sit anywhere without a cable length problem).

There was/is a issue with the LB/LT RB/RT, they are somehow switched/not working properly.

Got it working though, but did not like I could not play the game on the first day, because ubisoft took 3/4 days to get out a patch...

I understand that you guys(and girls http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) have to investigate the issue etc, no offence. But think its a but sloppy to sell a game and you hear(as company) that it has an issue and you take such a long time to fix it.

Just MHO though... And no offence to you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

PS: I heard that the encyclopedia in the Animus edition will be sold standalone, with extra "thingies"?? Why would I order a Animus Edition when the encyclopedia will be sold separated? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif


Rest assured, we will sell the encyclopedia on Ubiworkshop as a standalone and there will be some additions on the version sold on Ubiworkshop, such as the carte blanche Assassins.

The wired one = 100% compatible, out of the box, and if I remember correctly - was the one suggested at the time to use? - I remember that the drivers for the wireless one are rather twitchy on a few games.. not just Ubisoft's, which is why I never bought one - I got the wired one to make sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Some people collect the special editions - and prefer to get it all in one box - it's good to have the choice though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmz you got a point there about the controller, but really love a controller with no wire(s), and did not have any problems with other games. But if you say so http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Do you know if the encyclopedia in the special edition will be the same as the standalone one?
Because UbiWorkshop tells us that there will be some additions on the version sold on Ubiworkshop, such as the carte blanche Assassins. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What doescarte blanche Assassins mean, that there are more versions? And will the Dutch encyclopedia be English or translated?

Sorry for spamming this thread all the time, but really want to know http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
