Hello all, I am preordering this game copy from Amazon since I only have to pay 99 cents for shipping due to all of my promotions going towards this game. Now Amazon does not have Signature Edition or any of the DLC that Gamestop offers. Is there any way I can get the DLC later down the road.

Ubisoft staff: Can you please talk to Ubisoft and Amazon about this because I think its not fair Gamestop upgrades to Signature Edition and Amazon does not. There is a majority on Amazon just like Gamestop so can you please resolve this as seeing I will not have any money to pay for the DLC.

Every retailer gets something different. And i highly doubt they would make Amazon a signature edition. Gamestop always has the most pre order value from AC and i believe its going to stay that way.

About the DLC thing im not sure if you can or not. Mostly likely you cant.

If they dont release the stuff as DLC down the road, then the game is worth at least 30 bucks. I refuse to use my promotion codes towards a game that is not finished and with no DLC. SCREW THAT.

I want to hear from the forum staffs about this. Others can post here but I will keep bumping this topic to get the forum staffs to respond to me

Lol, the game is only worth 30 dollars?

It's worth the full 50 it costs at release.

Not if they release the preorder bonus like the mission, bomb pack and whatever else as DLC later down the road or at least have Amazon sell a limited amount of signature Edition. To me with them not doing anything from that to a DLC later down the road, I am starting to doubt Ubi. EA is a greedy corporation with HORRIBLE servers. Activision is a evil corp that rehashes game year after year. What does Ubi do?? SIT ON ITS LAZY BUTT DOING NOTHING TO IMPRESS PLAYERS.

I don't get why people obsess over companies so much sometimes.

And since when does EA host the servers people play on? Don't their FPS' use dedicated servers? And Activision as a whole isn't 'evil', just Bobby Kotick.

And I'm impressed that UbiSoft can release great AC games each year, but tons of people are ****ed off by the DRM.

And by the way, the pre-order bonuses WILL be released as DLC down the road, and I don't see why not. They aren't crucial to the game and don't add that much content anyway. Unless you are specifically gunning for the animated shorts, art books, soundtracks, and encyclopedias. But the in-game things are actually fairly small and will probably be sold in a 5-10 dollar pack. All you get is the Vlad mission which will be your standard Lair of Romulus/Tomb type mission, some capacity upgrades that you don't really need, some costumes which are just cosmetic skins and make for good DLC anyway, and some MP characters that are again just cosmetic options.

The game is worth the full amount on release, regardless of whatever bonuses you get with it.

...the extra in-game content is just a skin, some MP characters and one extra lair. You're saying that is worth 20 bucks, but the entire game besides that is only worth 30?

Im fairy sure the DLC found in gamestops Sig.Edition will be avaliable down the rode along with all other in-game content(Vlad level, extra ammo, online charcaters, and costumes for Ezio) just as the last 2 games have done.

now as Sukhvirs said, all retailers have osmething diffrent. Gamestop had the Sig edition (sadly no 'real' collector's edition) and bestbuy gives the crusader for online.

Amazon didn't have ANYTHING for ACR until just like..what 2 weeks ago? that they would offer an altair costume...which personally I think it's whack since personally, altair's robes oculd have been an ingame unlock since we already play as Altair in ACR but..oh well.

I still preordered with gamestop since it's close where I live and I get most for my money so cna't entirely complain...though I'd assassinate for that AC Bible :P lol

As a member has already posted - different retailers get different offers, some you may feel better than others.

It's to offer choice and value - since some versions may be more expensive, it's also so that some retailers get exclusive content - to reward people who shop there.

I'm sorry but the retailers listings - are as they are, so you have to choose which retailer /version from the available information.

There is a pinned editions thread with the full content listing and retailers.



I suggest you read the pinned threads as well as the forum rules, if you wish to be part of the community - even though judging by your comments about Ubisoft - you may not want too now. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

uhh..
Are you resulting to insults because you don't have anything logical to say against my arguments?

I'm sorry that I don't go out much because I don't have my license, am an only child, and because my Dad doesn't feel like doing anything after he gets home from work because he's tired and we're in a financial crisis.

I'll go out biking when the rain stops though, thanks for the suggestion.

The fact that you just said that proves that you don't either.

Err.. I don't think that the Vlad the Impaler mission will have any effect on 100% sync.

and what promotions? Do you work at an advertising company?

No I dont work for a advertising company. I got 60 dollars in promotion from Amazon for buying Gears and other stuff that gives me the discounts.

What in god's name does getting 100% synch have to do with this?

lol, and you don't want to get a game as great as Assassin's Creed for free just because they don't have this extra crap that doesn't really give you much other than a 10-30 minute platform experience and a weapon skin?

Exactly. I really don't get that either. All those things are extra content because they're small bonuses. They don't add anything to the game of such a significance that they'd add more than a few bucks to the price. I really don't see how any of it would in any way be so significant to the enjoyment of the game that it wouldn't be worth buying unless they'd cut 40% off the price.

The extra things like the Encyclopedia, Art book, Embers movie, and soundtrack cost more. The DLC at best costs around 1$ or less for each one and aren't linked to getting 100% like they were in AC II with the Templar Lairs.

The OP's point is moot.
