If you didn't know ACR is now available for Pre-order on Steam.

But, the pre-order bonus this time around is only the Ottoman Doctor.
I'm highly disappointed. I wanted to buy an edition that has all bonus content like the Animus edition on the consoles, like the Digital Deluxe edition of Brotherhood.
I don't want just one multiplayer character which is also taken from Brotherhood and put into Revelations with just a re-texture.

Come on, Ubisoft! Make a true Digital Deluxe edition for Revelations on Steam!
Don't disappoint us Steam gamers.
I don't care if you charge more for it, even in pre-order form, I just want to have all the content I can get from this game.

Please, Ubisoft. I most likely won't be able to get this content from another place, since the shops that sell video games around here are fail, and I'm not sure if I can pre-order from Ubishop or Gamestop.

i agree with you there ElleCore, PC-Gamers deserve a little more respect, and the bonus they give for pre-order is ridiculous, i'm not thinking of preorder it and knowing this the less. i'm gonna wait for the release and buy it then. But seriously.... this is a shame they way we are being treated...

Seriously? No Digital Deluxe edition on Steam yet?

I am disappoint.

EDIT:

On a side note, I believe you can get the Crusader just by playing one of the Altiar Missions in the game. :/

Yeah, just saw that on steam and then did some research on the bonuses gamestop is giving for pre ordering as i always do to make sure i am not fooled. I bought all of the Assassin's Creed series on Steam so far (Deluxe Editions) and i just love those games, but i wont hesitate not to buy the game just because of that. So i think Ubisoft should make some changes on the pre order bonuses for the digital version. And, by the way, i am not from NA, so i really dont have much options as far as buying games is concerned.

i agree. this is a fail for ubisoft. the last time they released a game for AC, which was ACB, they had the special deluxe edition up for pre-order the day they put it on there, AND it came with, bonus maps, bonus characters, and a set of epic armor. so i ask you ubisoft. what the heck are you doin throwin us 1 single little MP character in the pre-order specialty? give us the same amount you gave to us for the deluxe edition of ACB. i thank you for what you've done with these games in the past and i hope you'll keep supplying epic games in the future.

Please check the pinned threads for information on the different editions.

The current "digital exclusive edition" which does contain some extra bonus content, is only available from GameStop network and the ubishop.

There are no plans at present to release this version on different digital distributors.

Of course it won't be on Steam, you're telling me stuff I already know.
Ubisoft is really behaving like a this time around with their versions of the game.
It WORKED TWO TIMES BEFORE, WHY THE SUDDEN NEED TO CHANGE, UNLESS YOU'RE JUST BEING GREEDY?
And then they wonder how it comes that people turn to piracy... lol.

That this company still has fans, is beyond me.
They their fans on CoJ... and now they are doing the same with AC, and they'll do it with any and all games coming out, mark my words.

That's what i dont get. It's not only Ubisoft's doing. A lot of companies are doing exclusive pre order bonuses for some shops and making people mad about it like the packs on Deus Ex HR, or releases an unfinished game and then throws tons of dlcs like EA do with most of their games. And they still have the guts to complain about piracy. I mean, really, how do companies plan on combating piracing by making people who dont practice piracing mad about them? It isn't working at all, and sometimes i am forced to not purchase a game because i know there will be tons of stuff later that will be charged so i figure i am better off waiting for and Ultimate Edition or something like that. Thank god this isn't what Ubisoft do. They don't release a billion dlcs. I have to give that to them. But on the other hand i would really appreciate a pre order digital deluxe edition for us customers instead of having to pay extra for the content or having to wait to buy a deluxe edition later on.

I did say at the end of my post I'd prefer to pre-order from Steam, not from Gamestop or Ubishop.

And yes I checked the thread about editions before posting this.

EDIT: Well I guess I won't have another option but to get it from Ubishop if it's not added to Steam aswell. But I'll keep watching Steam to see if Ubisoft change their mind. Hopefully they will.

actually, the ubishop and steam versions of the game, are the same. they're both the regular game with the bonus MP character, thats all. getting it from either site wont make a difference at all. but if what you say is true, then i guess we'll all have to just pre-order what they're giving out through steam, even though it's fail in comparison to AC2 and ACB.

I'm not the biggest fan of the way Ubisoft's handling PC versions, but this time they're at least not delaying the game by a few months. Steam pre orders for most games usually pop up like 6 weeks before release, so the beginning of December date will most probably be true. ACB's pre orders (Steam) didn't come up until they announced the March release date, as I can recall.

ok this is messed up. buying ACR signature edition from gamestop, would be like buying off of steam except it's a completely different program that works exactly the same. thats cruddy stupid. why not give steam the signature edition aswell? it's the SAME THING just different design and different name, other than that, it's like they're twin programs. it's fail. ubisoft, please just give the signature edition to steam if this is gonna happen otherwise it's just bogus.

actually the official release date is November 29th I think..

for PC anyway.

Anyway, even if Steam doesn't get a deluxe edition we'll still be able to get the stuff in a DLC later on.

Unless you're specifically gunning for the digital artbook.

I can't buy it on StopGames, and I prefer to have all my games within Steam.
So, what UBI is going to do?

Like I said, I can't buy it on StopGames, so I pre-ordered it (yes, I did it) on Steam. It would be nice to see the extra content in there too, specially the map, I don't care about the MP characters.

FYI, on StopGames say that I can't buy it since I'm from Argentina. For me that is a 1 time error I'll never forgive. With Steam I had never this problem, and UBI should work with people that can work anywhere (you know, Steam).

Hate isn't a good thing, and the extra stuff isn't really worth that much anyway. It'll just be sold as DLC down the road.

Hm. That's strange. And according to WOT (web of trust) firefox addon, this site is reliable and legit. If more people can verify this site, i will probably get it from them, it has both the vlad mission and the doctor that I want

Edit: Despite their good WOT scorecard, online reviews don't make me feel comfortable buying from this site. I guess I'll stick with ubishop's digital exclusive edition
Edit2: Couldn't help but notice that the poster who mentioned this site has only made two posts and both were about that site...

This game should have digital deluxe edition on Steam, if not, a lot of people won't buy the game.

reason? we have all the AC games with good editions in our Steam library, and don't want a new one at the same price with a **** of content.

it isn't difficult to give us the same content you give with other digital editions! so please be good with your fans and bring to the Steam users the content!

Anyway, I'm buying ACR on Steam regardless of whether or not it has a deluxe edition, just because I have all the others on Steam, and I prefer to get games in the same series on the same platform.

'sides, I'm fairly sure that we'll get all the pre-order stuff as DLC.

I'm not buying this game unless I can get the Deluxe edition from Steam. I've bought all the previous AC games from steam without even caring about the price as long as I knew I was getting complete, or close to complete, content (as was the case with the Deluxe Editions). But now I can't buy the game from whom I want to buy it from? I won't even think for two seconds not to buy that crappy limited edition even though I consider myself a loyal fan of the series. How is it that Ubisoft will just turn its back to some of their loyal clients even though these clients have no problem with having to pay the higher extra prices? I just don't understand. On the bright side of things, I guess I will be saving my $60 bucks...

It's kinda funny actually. Now i see why they are and will continue doing this. And that's because you guys won't do **** about it. You are complaining on this thread like i am. That's OK, but what you're saying is that. Oh, Ubisoft is being greedy not putting the content on steam, but we will get it from a DLC later on (more money) or saying Oh, i will buy it anyway and hope for an upgrade. Wtf?! Really?! Now that's so convincing for Ubisoft. So traslanting what all of you said. "Ubisoft is screwing us, but we are buying the game anyways."

I am not buying this game until they put a full version of the game for the same price on steam and that's what all of you that are complaining should do. Not BUYING IT ANYWAYS.
