I am finally ok with what we Americans get this time around being that I feel the encyclopedia is ridiculous anyway but I would really like to have the turkish armor which seems cool. I don't understand though how you can even get the standard edition if you are automatically bumped to the signature edition just for pre-ordering.

Wow thank god for you Widow http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Now we see if this actualy stops the endles threads on the subject http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Anyway, thanks a heap for the info http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

One question, I saw somewhere that the free gamestop upgrade included the SP mission. This is why I pre-ordered there because the only thing that REALLY matters to me is that I get the full SP experience. I am very disappointed to see that this is not mentioned in your post. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Also, I'm pretty P'd off that we in the US get the shaft, again. What is Ubi's problem? I want to know what is in this misteriously sealed box, I want the art book, I want the option to get the encylopedia (available on Ubishop?), and I especially want the SP mission. This is a load of crap. Shame on you Ubisoft http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I believe it is because of the pre-order that you are bumped up which isn't a bad thing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Once it has been released I don't think that option will be available again.

It was at the end of one version of the cinematic trailer, I think it was the one uploaded to youtube by machinima. Unfortunately, so many people have uploaded it and I doubt I'll be able to find the right one. I'll try though.

Hey, what do ya know, I sorted by view count and found it right away. At the end of this video is the add for the gamestop upgrade and the first thing is exclusive single player mission and I only knew of one.

Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo6Q14vBB1c)

This same add also appears at the end of the Desmond trailer on the Official Assassin's Creed Revelations website.

I was just curious. It's definitely a good thing in my book. Thanks for official info on the subject I know I was kind of confused about the whole thing. I thought that the signature edition also comes with the Vlad the impaler mission. That's what the facebook post said about it.

Why is it that when it comes to the U.S. and Canada for Collector's Editions we always get the short end of the stick? They continually give everything to Great Britain, Europe and Australia on a silver platter. I'm even an Ubisoft shareholder and I still can't get a straight answer from Ubisoft. Since I hold stock, aren't they supposed to kiss up to us?

I lately just became hooked into the great graphics and the great looks of the upcoming game of the AC series. I looked around and found out that AC is extremely known for its story mode. However, I've not played the previous series of Ezio, so I do not know the characters. Would I still buy ACR even thought i don't know any of its past story and still understand any of it? Will the game help me the basics of how to become good at it, like the ACII does? (I played the demo) /or do I need to play the previous series to fully understand the story and how to play well?
Would i need to buy the animus edition, so that i get some background on the characters?

It's confirmed, Kotaku is reporting that North America is only getting the Signature Edition. Once again it looks like that Ubisoft screws the U.S. and Canada over.

I'm pretty sure that the Animus Edition would be available to everyone, provided that they order it from the Ubishop.

What I'd like to know is whether people who order the Animus Edition get the Ottoman Doctor as a standard character.

I know that with Brotherhood, the U.S. had select editions that gave away either the Officer or the Harlequin, though the Codex Edition had both of them inside, so I'm wondering if buying the Animus Edition would include them all as well.

Then the link that Widow gave directs you to either EBgames or JB-HiFi in Australia. Then there is the matter of the television format and Region lockout. The U.S. uses ATSC and Canada uses NTSC, so therefore, anyone with an XBox wouldn't be able to play it. Unless they have an PS3 because it's not Region locked. We wouldn't have to worry about any of this if Ubisoft would just give us all the same damn Editions instead of being ethnocentric.

Hello Ubi

I really was hoping for the Animus Edition to be available to preorder at the EB Games store near me. Market wise I believe it would be great for you to release the Animus Edition up here to Canada and the U.S. There appears to be a lot of people who want it here.
My EB told me to keep checking back with them. I really want the Animus Edition because of all the awesome stuff you put in it, especially the encyclopedia.

Will EB Games in Canada have the Animus Edition available to pre-order later this summer? Or even as a limited time to preorer it?

I hope there is someway you can make it available to Canada and the U.S. because I would really like to purchase it when it is released this November.

If you could let me know as soon as you can, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you!

Ugh, no Special Edition for me!
Well, anyway, I guess The Best Buy Edition and Gamestop Edition are considered special.

I kind of want the Crusader multiplayer character more, but we'll just have to see the other bonuses. And if there is another Beta, I'm preordering from whatever place has it. But I'm seriously doubting a Beta.

Are there any news about a digital deluxe edition?
How about play.com? It used to have the black edition of ac2 and the codex edition of acb, so how come the animus edition is exclusive to eb games?

Apparently Ubi is updating the Signature Edition page because it says; "You may not access this content at this time." It would be nice if they updated the Signature Edition to at least the Collector's Edition, because of all the complaints they're getting from the North American gamers

I really hope that they will release a collectors edition for revelations. I've bought the collectors editions for both AC2 and ACB, along with the limited edition for AC1.

Me thinks this:

Turkish Assassin Armour.
is this:
One exclusive customisation item.

This is exactly what happened last year with the Codex Edition and the Auditore Edition...

Auditore Edition had already told us that we were getting the Helmschmied Drachen Armour, the later, the Codex Editon's "Something extra" turned into the Drachen Armour... Would be keen on seeing a screenshot of this Turkish Assassin Armour nonetheless...

I hope they have a Xbox Beta for Revelations.

As of now, problems like lag and other glitches happen more often on Xbox than on PS3, and as well as sorting them on down the line, Xbox might end up with more people playing on the Xbox version.

Correct me if I'm worng but doesn't that mean it was originally made for the ps3 and ported to the Xbox and that is why you guys didn't get a beta? Correct me if I'm I wrong, that is simply what I assumed.

My local Gamestop says that when I pre-order AC:R it gets bumped up to signature edition like Widow said, but that it will also include the content from the special edition. I really hope this is the case because I really want both the Turkish assassin Armor and the Vlad the Impaler mission, but am having doubts.

Can a mod conform/un-confirm or ask someone who might know for me? Would be greatly appreciated!

I went back and did some personal research on these Collector's Editions. Both AC2 and ACB came out in November. The AC2 Collector's Edition and the ACB Master Assassins Edition were both first made available for North America in early August at GameStop where I purchased them. ACR is coming out in November too, so will we be 3 for 3 with another August announcement of the North America ACR Collector's Edition??

I posted this in another thread, but it stands true here as well:

This blows my mind. The team thats developing Revelations is based in North America. Yet N. America gets shafted on collectors editions and timely forum management. Their should have been a Revelations forum up within an hour of the official reveal at E3. But Germany has one? Seriously? Who Buys more Ubisoft products, America or Germany? Yes thats a rhetorical question, they need to get their priorities straight.

I love Ubisofts games, but their community support has always been crappy. Gabe does a decent job, but he has no counterpart on the Splinter Cell team. The way Ubi has handled the SC community has forever left a bad impression on me. If they didnt have the best developers then I would gladly take my money somewhere else.

No surprise i supposse...it is a French company...

Hey. Anyone pre-ordered the Animus Editon on PS3 from Ubishop yet? I pre-ordered my copy a couple of months ago choosing standard delivery, does anyone know whether it will arrive on the UK release date or after???? If it doesn't arrive on the day I will wait for it to be released for pre-order on Play or Amazon. I usually order from Play but they don't have the Animus edition yet! I couldn't wait so ordered from Ubisoft for the first time. I ordered AC2 Black Edition and AC Brotherhood Codex Edition and even AC1 Limited Edition from Play.

I posted this in another thread, but it stands true here as well:

This blows my mind. The team thats developing Revelations is based in North America. Yet N. America gets shafted on collectors editions and timely forum management. Their should have been a Revelations forum up within an hour of the official reveal at E3. But Germany has one? Seriously? Who Buys more Ubisoft products, America or Germany? Yes thats a rhetorical question, they need to get their priorities straight.

I love Ubisofts games, but their community support has always been crappy. Gabe does a decent job, but he has no counterpart on the Splinter Cell team. The way Ubi has handled the SC community has forever left a bad impression on me. If they didnt have the best developers then I would gladly take my money somewhere else.

No surprise i supposse...it is a French company... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Unfortunately we see the Signature Edition as an insult to us North Americans by Ubisoft. They treat us as if we're not an important market as the European market. Until we get the same treatment as the other markets, we'll continue to feel insulted by Ubisoft.

It doesn't necessarily mean it was designed for the PS3 (or whether that matters for the most part) having a PS3 demo may just mean that they were afraid that there wasn't enough market excitement on the PS3. So they threw out a open demo in order for people to get hooked. I don't know much about the demo (in fact the only thing I do about it is that it existed) but I do know that just because there was a demo on one console and not the other doesn't necessarily mean it was designed for one console in mind.

Hope that helps

Now being in the country(New Zealand) that usually gets shafted when it comes to games (or software in general) I understand North Americas frustration and I just wish that NO ONE gets left out. Bias (whether its because or region or something else) is unacceptable and to me its seems like a silly marketing move to do that to one of its largest markets.

Urgent? The game is almost 5 months away!
Anyway, gamestop's store locator shows that there are several "eb games stores" in Italy, so the best way to be sure is to find the one nearest to you and ask.

"Local distributor for Ubisoft in SA, Megarom, didn't go as far as to confirm all three special editions, but did call it "most probable" that we will see them locally. Pricing is still to be confirmed."

The only way that Ubisoft stands up and takes notice how truly that we North Americans are upset about being screwed out of the Animus and Collector's Editions, is if we all stood up and not purchase Revelations. Of course this isn't going to work because people will still buy the game telling Ubisoft that it's okay to screw us over.

If it doesn't arrive on the day I will wait for it to be released for pre-order on Play or Amazon. I usually order from Play but they don't have the Animus edition yet!

Still nothing and I have looked everywhere I did call up Ubisoft a couple of months ago regarding the matter, but I was put on with a guy who seemed completely clueless! He was no help and didn't really answer my question, in fact he worried me further, he told me that once despatched it would take 4-8 days to arrive, I though I chose standard delivery which is meant to be 2-3 days????

Anyway I don't think he knew much about pre-orders and he was just telling me the general delivery information for normal games, I don't think he understood when I began to talk about the pre-order for AC Revelations: Animus Edition, he did not mention the game at all during the conversation and doubt he even knows what I was talking about.

If you do get anything though please post because I am tempted to cancel my order and look elsewhere, though it doesn't seem to be available on Play or Amazon still, they were my first choices but I was forced to Pre-order from Ubisoft directly.

If it happens again. I will pick the next game up at the used game store. and completely avoid buying ANYTHING more from Ubisoft. including t.shirts, hoodies, avatar items ect. I have been an avid supporter of the company. But that will end, and instead extend to game companies who treat "all" their fans "equally" This is the third time they have done this to us.

After thinking about it. really it's not that big of a deal. we get a dlc. and one multi character with a couple additional Easter eggs. besides the fall releases look really good. with Batman Arkham City and Elder scrolls Skyrim in addition to AC Revelations. Not having the additional LE frees up some money. last year. I bought three AC collectors editions. one for myself and the other two for my brothers as a Christmas gifts. This year I will ask them which of the three games they want.

I have already paid for all three games. So thinking about it. To be honest I am fine with it now.

I don't know about in the near future, but as of right now they don't offer any type of art book from any of the Collector's Editions on the ubiworkshop.com website. The only thing that they are offering is the Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia from the Animus Edition, but the pre-ordering for that hasn't even opened up yet. I was told 2 years ago that they would be offering the premium content from the Collector's Editions, but haven't seen anything as of yet. It would be nice to be able to add the Master Assassin Ezio to my bookcase of collectibles or the Sam Fisher figurine that came with the European CE of Splinter Cell: Conviction and even to be able to get the Codex.

However, as long as Ubisoft continues to screw over the North American gamer when it comes to Collector's Editions, I'll continue to boycott their games and not purchase them any longer and just rent them from GameFly.

Hello, I have a question regarding Gamestop's Edition.

When you preorder, I see on the site that there are no Credit Card requirements to fill up.
So is it true that when the game arrives, you pay then or what? Someone please help if you can.
That would be great, because my parents don't exactly want to use their credit card for preorder...

Um...are you preordering online? If so I cannot help you, but when you preorder in-person, you put down minimum of 5$. Then you either pay in full anytime or on launch date, or pay off bit by bit a week or however.

Now for online preorder...I would imagine you would HAVE to use credit card (or pay pal whatever that is) but...like I said before I never bought anything online so I wouldn't know

Like SleezeRocker said, if you don't want to use your parents credit card going into the store and putting down at least $5 will get you the Pre-Order. You must know that unless you meet the age requirement/ESRB rating you will not be allowed to purchase it.
If you purchase online you will also have to meet the requirement and enter a credit card number.
Hope that helps. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

While our CE came with an art book, comic book, decals, a couple of in-game items, steelbook game case and a credit card sized USB card that had a 50/50 chance of working. Europe received a Sam Fisher statue, a steel book case, a Shadow Armor multiplayer skin, a copy of the game’s official soundtrack and early access to Infiltration Mode, the SC300, SR2 and MP5 weapons. With Conviction though, I was happy with what we got with the exception of the USB drive, I much rather of had the Sam Fisher statue.

But you know what really makes me mad about the whole thing is? I own stock in several gaming companies including Ubisoft, so in part, I am an owner in Ubi. So it sickens me as an owner and a gamer that Ubisoft has the audacity to give North American gamers the boot once again and it doesn't matter to them whether we own stock in the company or not. So this has prompted me to start going to stockholders meetings and give the brass at Ubisoft a piece of my mind and to stand up for the North American gamer!

The UK is part of Europe, regardless of what Shaun Hastings thinks. :P

Anyway, when will we get news for the Digital Deluxe edition for PC players? I really liked the way they handled Brotherhood for PC, they upgraded the textures and the UI looked more like it was made for the PC. The edition was also much better than the one for ACII for PC, and I hope that Revelations will carry in that style for the DD edition.

Im probably gonna wait a while until the price of ACR goes down a bit, I just hope that Ubisoft continues to release every single piece of extra content so that no one misses out on any missions. I hope the pre-order versions dont have any content that never gets released as dlc on psn, thankfully ubisoft hasnt done this yet so theyll probably continue as they have done which is good

Basically, please dont deprove us of any missions regardless of whether we have pre-ordered or not!

It's a shame that there's so much diversity between the different editions, as I really wanted the Animus Edition as it appeared to have the most in-game stuff (I would convince my cousin to buy the Collectors Edition so that I could play with the real-life stuff) but the thing is that those aren't the only differences. I really want to use The Turkish Assassin's Armour (let's face it, The Armour of Brutus suck by aesthitic comparison) but only the Special Edition has that has it, along with my favourite multiplayer character, The Doctor, getting a Constantinople Revamp. Again, the Special Edition is the only version which has this and I don't like the Armour of Brutus or the Jester as anywhere near as much as the Turkish Assassin's Armour and The Doctor. Will there be a crossover between the Editions (like The Ottoman Doctor or The Turkish Armour being on both) or is it a case of making the incredibly difficult decision of having all of the cool stuff and giving up the stuff which would make this game perfect for me?

A big hope for the ones in America (or around the world) who desperately want the encyclopedia :URL=http://store.ubiworkshop.com/products/Assassin%27s-Creed-Encyclopedia.html]Ubiworkshop - Encyclopedia (ship Worldwide)[/URL]

So by pre-ordering at Gamestop we get the free upgrade to the Signature edition which gives us praticaly everything the Animus version has except the Encyclopedia which can be bought at Ubiworkshop.com!

I still think that they should make a Special edition including the encyclopedia available for US and Canada. I put big hopes on an August reveal of a super US Animus version http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yes if people so choose can order the AC Encyclopedia on ubiworkshop.com, but if you think about it, by the time that you buy the game and the encyclopedia, N. Americans will probably end up paying the same as or more than the people in the EMEA. However, you get less than what's inside the Animus Edition and it won't come packaged in a nice collector's box.

I want to pre-order Assassin's Creed Revelations, but I do not know for what system I should get it for. I want to get it for my PS3 because I want to buy the whole AC collection on my PS3, but with all the framerate loss issues and screen tearing and etc, the PS3 version is completely inferior to the 360 version sadly. :'( But I don't want to lose hope, and wish to buy it on my PS3, mainly because my friends will also be getting it on PS3, but at the moment I know I can max out the game on my PC, just ilke I did Brotherhood with no where near as bad performance as the PS3 version. I am really picky on framerate, and I can literally FEEL the change in fps, therefore I want to ask anyone here, Ubisoft mostly, if you can enlighten me on if the PS3 version will atleast be locked at 30fps with NO frameloss, because I really don't want to spend money on something that will irritate me while I could've got the better version. PLEASE Ubisoft or anyone help me decide which version to pre-order, the PS3 version or the PC version, as I really want to get this game ASAP!!! Assassin's Creed is my addiction just as Harry Potter is.

Right.

I'm even more confused now. How can a game be developed at the same time, for the same amount of time, and then be still be delayed for half a year-ish? And how come still nobody bothered to fix things such as better optimized controls and UI for mouse and keyboard? What about the aspect ratio?

Well Snowblind studios is located in Kirkland Washington here in the United States. they seem to have hooked the Europeans up with a pretty cool LE for Lord of the Rings War in the North. They hooked those of us up "equally" in North America too.

Ubisoft could announce a LE for those of us here in North America sometime in August. That's what they did last year. However if the pattern of behavior continues, it will not be as elaborate as the European editions. that's just the norm for this company. And most of us who live in North America have begun to understand this. Heck Ray Charles can see it.

However alienating a huge portion of your fans with something as petty as this. Is not smart business.

It would be nice if Ubi does announce some sort of CE in August. I know what you mean by it not being as good as the EMEA's Animus Edition though. With Brotherhood, we got a child's toy, an art book, an extra's DVD, map of Rome and the two DLC's. EMEA's Codex Edition had better contents inside. The AC II Master Assassin's Edition was just the White Edition packaged in a tin box and with the GameStop pre-order bonus mission included.

With two great games like this coming out, I really don't care now that I'm not getting Revelations unless Ubi comes out with something better than the Signature Edition.

You know it's funny how everyone defends Ubi by saying; "Well, they are an European company, so that is why the EMEA gets the better Collector's Editions". While I agree that they're European, but I see North American companies release the same CE's for all markets. So, being an European company is no excuse for not giving all markets the same opportunity to purchase the same CE's.

Shadow, the one thing that I didn't like about when Ubi finally released the 3 extra maps on Xbox Marketplace from AC II, you could only buy two of the three separately. Only Santa Maria Dei Frari and Palazzo De Medici you could purchase separately, but if you wanted the Arsenal Shipyard DLC from the Black Edition, you had to purchase all 3. So those who bought the Master Assassin Edition had to repurchase Santa Maria and Palazzo Medici to play the Arsenal Shipyard DLC.

Maybe in August they will announce a North American collectors edition. we can only hope they will. Regardless I have LOTR War in the North CE. Which is just killer. And like you said hopefully Skyrim will have a CE.

Lot's of games being released in Nov. LOTR War in the North was backed up to Nov along with Skyrim and a host of other blockbuster titles. Hopefully Ubi will do the right thing... Time will tell.

However, I don't think that I like the idea of having a Black and White Edition of each. That White Edition on ubiworkshop.com will show the dirt and/or dirty fingerprints and according to Chris Lewis at UbiWorkshop, the White Edition will have more content than what's in the Black Edition other than the "Carte Blanche" section.

This is what Chris posted: "The Ubiworskhop Edition will contain more than the Animus Edition, for example the cartes blanches".

So since the White Edition will contain more than the Black Edition and even though I'm not getting Revelations, I'm getting the White Edition encyclopedia.

ShadowRage41
07-19-2011, 07:37 AM
@Bio Yeah I like the white encyclopedia too. the shipping rates are pretty high, but probably worth it for someone like us who is a fan of the series. I bought the hardback collectors strategy guide for Brotherhood. Though I never really used it, I just thumbed through it and read all the codex type entrees. Concerning a North American LE... Time will tell. But I see no laudable reason why they shouldn't offer north America a nice LE.

@ Vicious... Everyone has a different level of tolerance I understand how you feel, If I had not already paid off the signature edition. I would be right there with you. if it happens next year. I will not purchase the next game. In fact When the game comes up for pre-order. I will not pay the normal edition off with instructions to upgrade me to the LE when it is announced, I will just wait and see if there is an LE for North America.. If not? I will pass all together. I really wish I had handled things that way for Revelations. Next time I will not make the same mistake. you know. Fool me once shame on you. fool me twice shame on me. XD... If you have had enough of being snubbed. you have had enough. I suppose the game could survive minus the North American market.

Yeah, UbiWorkshop is directly in the Ubisoft Montreal studio. But strangely, there's no option to change the currency. It actually says "Choose a currency below to display product prices in the selected currency", however, the only option is US Dollars.

I added the encyclopedia to the basket, went to the shopping basket, selected a country and got an estimate for shipping costs... apparently the shipping costs to Western Europe are at least $40 (on top of the $29.95 for the encyclopedia itself)!

I think the problem is, that apparently too few people in the US would be willing to *really* get an equal treatment and actually pay what people in Europe have to pay for these editions. Have a look at the PC versions:

Special Edition - priced between €30 (Ireland) and €50 (Germany,Netherlands) - ie. $43-$72.
Collectors Edition - priced between €50 (Play.com) and €60 (Germany,Netherlands) ie. $72-$86
Animus Edition - priced between €80 (Ireland,Ubishop) and €100 (Netherlands) - ie. $115-$144.

Consider this: how many people in the US would actually be prepared to pay $115 or more for the animus edition (PC edition, Xbox/PS3 would be even more expensive)? Apparently Ubisoft doesn't expect to sell it enough to warrant publishing that edition... and those who *really* want that edition, can always order it in Europe and just take the extra international shipping costs for granted...

snowblind nor Bioware seem overly concerned about the United States willingness to purchase expensive LE's. considering the Old Republic is is approx $230, and the Lord of the Rings war in the North is $130.00 and both are offered in North America. I attended the midnight release of Arkham Asylum @gamestop, and the many of the people were picking up the LE which was about $110. The same was true for AC II and AC Brotherhood.

If people really like the product they are willing to pay. review how the Halo CE's have done in the U.S. and I would not say they are under priced by any stretch of the imagination.

Besides Bio lives in Canada http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif So it's not just the United states that is getting the shaft... It's ALL of North America

I think the problem is, that apparently too few people in the US would be willing to *really* get an equal treatment and actually pay what people in Europe have to pay for these editions. Have a look at the PC versions:

Special Edition - priced between €30 (Ireland) and €50 (Germany,Netherlands) - ie. $43-$72.
Collectors Edition - priced between €50 (Play.com) and €60 (Germany,Netherlands) ie. $72-$86
Animus Edition - priced between €80 (Ireland,Ubishop) and €100 (Netherlands) - ie. $115-$144.

Consider this: how many people in the US would actually be prepared to pay $115 or more for the animus edition (PC edition, Xbox/PS3 would be even more expensive)? Apparently Ubisoft doesn't expect to sell it enough to warrant publishing that edition... and those who *really* want that edition, can always order it in Europe and just take the extra international shipping costs for granted... </div></BLOCKQUOTE> However only those with an PS3 can really import those games because their games not being region coded. So it sucks for those who have an XBox 360 that is region locked. There are plenty of gamers in North America that would spend that kind of money for a Collector's Edition. I'm sure that if Ubisoft brought the Collector's Edition here to North America there would be a lot of people that would buy it because of all the DLC that is included with it. I'd be willing to buy the CE then buy the White Edition Encyclopedia to go with it since it has more content in it than the Black Edition. And like Shadow said, it's all of N.A. getting the shaft by Ubisoft, not just the U.S..

Hmm I dunno whether to get this on the PS3 or the xbox 360. I got assassins Creed 2 on the xbox 360 but got AC Brotherhood on the ps3 because of the exclusive content and the multiplayer beta. Would there be much of a difference between versions this time? Could there be any additional exclusive content revealed at a later date? Hmm Thoughts?

Exactly, sort of like what Bioware done with the Dragon Age: Origins CE. A lot of cool DLC content, a cloth map, a Bonus Content DVD, a steelbook case in an awesome looking slipcover. Oh, I almost forgot, then what Ubi could do, is give us the art book just for pre-ordering Revelations just like they did when you pre-ordered the first Assassin's Creed CE.

Heck, Ubisoft could package all that along with the White Edition Encyclopedia and call it: Assassin's Creed: Revelations White Edition.

I am still not sure which version I will get.
As european I can buy the animus version which is pretty cool and because of the shipping costs is the best way to get the enzyclopedia which I would really like to have.

But on the other hand I hate it that I will not only get not all DLC that exists (turkish armor and the doc) but also the enzyclopedia will miss a few things (as it sounds like the carte blanches aren't the only difference? ).
And I hate it that I have to preorder at gamestop (no credit card for ubishop) as I do not really like that shop... ^^

This is so messed up this time, last time I got my codex or black edition and got all I could get from the versions at the release... ._.

I though about just buying the standard version and stop thinking about what I will missing with version A that version B will have when I order it at shop X in country Y...

That would be nice, however I doubt that will happen since it is being offered at the Ubiworkshop. I was really looking forward to the Vlad dungeon as well as using the Ottoman Jester in multi. Doubt our version has either one. damn the signature edition. lol

I think that the extra mission in the Signature Edition is the Vlad the Impaler dungeon. Also I believe that the Crusader is the multi-player skin.

Yes, the Batman CE is looking awesome, Ubisoft should take note and see that good CE's do sell well in North America.

I am glad to hear the Vlad dungeon is going to be in it, The Crusader is lame though. agreed concerning the Batman LE. you would think Ubisoft would realize those of us in North America like them too and are willing to shell out cash for them. here is another one.

That Lord of the Rings CE actually has 5 different variations for different retailers? They have the same content, just that they will have different class packs. Wal-Mart will have the Dwarven Pack, GameStop the Human Pack and Best Buy will have the Elven Pack and I forget who gets the others.

I love the game and obviously will buy, but I'm not pre-ordering unless I see an Animus or Templar edition with all the bells and whistles show up. This is really un-cool for the U.S. fans of the franchise.

Apart from a few mentions (and the image) in a few Italian threads, I can't find anything about this edition anywhere. It appears that there are presently no shops that sell it. Maybe this image was fan-made, or this edition was already cancelled?

The action figure itself *does* apparently exist, though... as you can see in this youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waKc2LaHdEQ) from San Diego Comic-Con. According to that video, the ebony version is a Gamestop exclusive... so maybe this time, the US are the lucky ones and the rest of the world is out of luck?

[Edit] I browsed through the Italian thread, and apparently this is a custom shop edition. If you buy the official collector's edition from Open Games in Carbonia, Italy (for € 99.99), they give you the ezio action figure with it. So it's just a promotional action from that Open Games shop, this has nothing to do with Ubisoft.

[Edit] I browsed through the Italian thread, and apparently this is a custom shop edition. If you buy the official collector's edition from Open Games in Carbonia, Italy (for € 99.99), they give you the ezio action figure with it. So it's just a promotional action from that Open Games shop, this has nothing to do with Ubisoft. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>Just to confirm..

This editon is not from Ubisoft - so if you do want it you will need to contact that store http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Then my apologies on this one. It's just that it's a hard pill to swallow knowing that we in North America are being left behind without a proper CE for Revelations. I took it in stride with the ACII Master Assassin Edition, though I wish that we got the Black Edition instead. Then I thought that maybe Ubisoft would make up for it by giving us a cool CE for Brotherhood, but when I seen the Codex Edition that Europe received compared to our CE that contained a child's plaything that is when I began to lose faith. And now with Revelations all we get is an EA inspired Signature Edition and no true CE like the Animus and Collector's Editions, I completely lost faith in Ubisoft to ever give North America the same treatment as the EMEA. I'm almost afraid to see what we'll get with ACIII because we'll probably get nothing this time around and Europe will get something cool. I think that I'll have to get a DVD-ROM for my computer that will play PAL games and buy the PC Codex Edition and the Revelations Collector's Edition. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

That's really having to go to an extreme to play the version of a game you want. when really that company should being trying to accommodate all their consumers.

I feel like if they are unwilling to give North America a LE or something I would be interested in, I will choose to opt out of purchasing any future installments.

At some point you have to say enough is enough. There are plenty of good game companies making Exceptional games who treat all their fans equally. I have issues about rewarding and supporting a game company that behaves this arrogantly. We have received no explanation as to why?

And my advice to the Europeans is? if there is a game company doing this to you? Do not buy their product or support them in any fashion.

Support the corporations that do things correctly. reward them instead.

I did the same thing to my local NFL team. they had a millionaires vs billionaires lockout argument. and so I chose not to purchase my NFL ticket on DTV this year. instead I have attended 25 MLB Texas Rangers home games. The NFL finally worked through their issues and ended the lockout. But I no longer care, I am over it. I am just about there with Ubisoft.

Assassin's Creed has been my favorite series. But I can... and I am willing to live without it. That is my last post concerning this matter. Either they will figure it out and release a CE for North America. or I am done with playing ALL their games. I know it does not matter to them. Just a drop in the bucket.

knowing ubisoft they'll have a DLC a few months after release where you can get all that stuff and I don't want to pay even more than people who didn't buy collector's edition like what happened in ACB

However - and forgive me if you already know, you may find your able to alter the Region coding on your existing DVD drive.

You should find the option in either the drive settings or the DVD player software.

Check with the maker if not.
If you don't intend to watch Region 1 [US] Dvd's on your PC, you can switch it to Region 2 [UK/EU]

You may however find you can only do this a few times [most lock out after a small number of changes]

Or if your very unlucky - the Drive is locked.

How does the Artbook and Encyclopedia differ?

I want to be able to get both, but it's kind of odd that I could pre-order the edition with the artbook but not be able to get the encyclopedia seperately, and I'd also have to give up on some features.

If the two items are different, what's stopping Ubisoft from selling the Artbook and Encyclopedia seperately in the Ubishop?

I also don't get why the same editions can't be purchased in all countries either.

Other than region coding, what's stopping the Animus Edition from being available for everyone?

If the problems aren't that major, what's stopping Ubisoft from releasing it in North America just like the European versions?

I'm British, and I don't get why Ubisoft would dismiss players in the USA to favour Europe, when they could just treat every gamer they're appealing to as equally as possible.

I see a lot of people complaining about the difference between what the North American continent gets and what all the other territories get. I agree, it should be equal across territories, but something has occured to me:

In the territories that get these extra goodies, these CEs, the price for games is anywhere from 150% to 250% of what NA customers pay. Especially since quite a few countries now have dollars breaking even with the USD -- it seems fair to me, in this one respect.
I'm in Australia, and our dollar is currently above the USD by a few cents -- a fantastic thing -- and Animus edition is $130, which is more than twice what anyone in NA would pay if it was available there. The normal game is $120. I know it's a very similar situation anywhere else in Europe or Oceania.

So, I think it's only fair that we have the opportunity to get more because we have to hand over twice -- sometimes three times -- the money to get our hands on the game in the first place. But at the same time, I'd prefer it was equal across all regions, like most everyone else.
People in Canada and the U.S should just be grateful they get the games cheap, maybe? :/

<sub>I am getting Animus edition, but mostly for the encyclopedia -- I haven't even put my order down yet. I'm far more excited for its release-rivals, Skyrim and Uncharted 3. Mostly Skyrim. Revelations' CEs aren't really all that impressive compared to its predecessors.</sub>

Actually, you're wrong.

Ubisoft is a French, as in from France - Europe, company. The ACR was developed by a global team across the entire planet, there were teams from Paris to Shanghai.

All the other goodies that are put in all the editions come from China anyways.

So the major price differences are due solely on either taxes across international borders, or, most likely, corporate greedy.

I find eally amusing the discussion between people in North America and Europe about the contents of the editions, while here in Brazil there are no stores pre-selling the game.

The ones I find on line either sell only to US/Canada, or then it's UK and Australia.

The only "store" I found that would sell the game to Brazil is a guy "pre-selling" the game on e-Bay.

And like hell I'll pay up-front for a game to a faceless person on e-Bay.

I also want to buy the Animus edition (US), so I haven't yet pre-ordered my copy because of this. if worst comes to worst I guess I'll be buying from ebay or Amazaon after it has already come out, seeing as right now this is the only way to achieve it. I'm also going to buy that White Edition Encylopedia.

What I believe UbiSoft should do is offer something like an "Ultimate Assassin Edition" or something, that was all the bonuses in one, I'd enjoy having both multiplayer characters, both encylopedia's, the DLC mission, the art book, the weapon capacity upgrades, both Turkish and Brutus's armors, the original Soundtrack, the animated Short, and the customisation item, all available together and to everyone in the world.

I mean, this is the end of Desmond's story for crying out loud, I'd love to buy an edition that has what I previously stated. But like I said, I'm holding off pre-ordering for now.

Someone already mentioned it a few days ago. Too bad that's an exclusive deal only offered to gamers in Italy. It would be nice if a retailer here would secure something like that for North America. However I digress because it seems that our complaints are falling on Ubisoft's deaf ears. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>In case you missed my post about this..

This "edition" is something one retailer has put together, it's not an official Ubisoft pack.

They have bundled the items together, so that's entirely down to that retailer.

@Mr_Shade: So there's a chance that these figures will eventually be sold to the rest of us? :O http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

No idea, since the maker of the figure has supplied the special black version to that retailer.

Products not made by Ubisoft I don't have any information on, however I did see the White version shown at comic con in one of the other threads.

Just to be clear, when you said "White version shown at comic con," do you mean the one made by Ubiworkshop? Ezio's Fury?

Oh, man. Just gotta hope for the best then. I know Attakus released the ACB PVC to all PAL territories and eventually retailers in U.S. also started selling them. This happened about 6 months after release, even though it was initially an exclusive to PAL.

Hopefully there will be a worldwide release a few months after launch. I need you Grandpa Ezio! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

My digression towards Ubi is that our complaints about N.A. not getting any type of good Collector's Edition like everyone else, just that EA inspired "Signature Edition" and nothing else.

The black figure is not the same and is not made by ubisoft so I don't have any info on this version.

It was linked to in an older thread - same figure as the Templar bundle, but in White - though, but to be clear it's not from Ubisoft.

I don't want to get anyone's hopes up too high (including mine) but it is now August. And in August for both AC II and AC Brotherhood it was right about this time that their North America Collector Editions suddenly popped up. In both cases, the European Edition were announced first with great promotion and it looked like we would be left out. Could they do the same thing again a third time??

Does anyone know if the art from the Art Book that comes with the Collectors Edition will be featured in the Collector's Edition Strategy Guide? Just like what they did with the Creed II strategy guide? Sorry if this has been discussed already.
