I pre-ordered AC2 from Gamestop, and they told me I'd get a "map" of the game. I'm just wondering about what this map will show, and if it's actually a map as opposed to a dowloadable one. Oh, and while i'm already posting, I was wondering how to put a sig on your posts.

This link should help you with you signature question.

As for the map, I doubt it will be encoded on the disc, you will probably get a code with the game to download it from PSN or Xbox Live.

No, no, no, you're not getting a map map, you're getting a new place (a map) IN the game.

You won't be able to download it. Every pre-order exclusive I've gotten you had to be connected to Live to get it. I'm not sure but I think a Silver membership is all that is needed. I wouldn't know for sure though since I have a Gold membership.

Silver can download most free stuffs on Live. So I'm assuming preorder exclusives count.

Damn it. Ah, I'll just have to bring my hard drive to my bud's house. Curse nearly thirty year old log houses and their faulty internet connections!

Do you know how HUGE that map would be (being almost ALL of Italy)? I would need to spread it out onto a table!

If you put some kind of plastic protection on it to prevent it from becoming dirty, it would make a cool tablecloth

I was going to say that, indeed.
It would make one hell of a tablecloth for the family dinner.

Maybe even pickpocket a few people while sitting at the table.

Speaking of maps, I heard best buy is going to have the third map that the black edition is getting. Is this true?

On the topic of gamestop, has anyone with a preorder from the gamestop online store had theirs shipped yet?

yes, also I'm not sure if it's out in America or not but in game and gamestation in the UK they are selling a special edition of AC2 with the map that isn't in the master edition.

Hopefully it's like all of Best buy's other preorder bonuses where I can just pay the 5 dollars to receive it right then and there.

Mine has said verifying since I preordered it on September 5th. :-/

to the OP:

The official guidebook thing comes with a poster map (a map map, like GTA) of all the cities and tuscany, so if you really want a map, might as well grab that.

Update: Still says verifying, but my credit card has now been charged. Gamestop.com is shipping soon!


As for the guidebook, I wouldn't recommend it. Well, maybe it would be more useful for AC2, but I got the Assassin's Creed one (for the artbook), and the guidebook itself was a complete waste. The artbook was cool, yeah, but worth the price of a whole limited edition guide? Probably not. For me, Assassin's Creed just isn't a game in which guidebooks are at all helpful.

Best Buy stopped pre-orders http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif Looks like I'll have to wait for the Ship Yard Map to be released as DLC.
