View Full Version : AEP Release in US -- Spoilers wanted or not wanted by countries with later release date?

Curious here about what the community would like to see regarding the AEP release in the US. Since a large number of people will have the expansion pack days or weeks before other parts of the world, are those who have to wait interested in hearing details of AEP before they get the game?


Personally I am. I doubt I will get my copy this week in the US but I will be able to check the forums though, so I am interested in hearing first hand accounts of the P38, the Spit, the TA152 and other things and do appreciate when people give out 'spoilers'. It gets me really fired up and makes the excitement for me much greater when I finally get the product, though to be fair I probably only have to wait a few days, not weeks before I will have time to play.

What do you prefer? Spoilers or no?


(and please, no US or UBI bashing, negative energy is not healthy)

I'll take spoilers...I won't be buying it until I can get most of my major course work done and accounted for in three weeks time. Heck it may only just be coming out at that time...so yeah that'd be ok.

I'll be one of the ones "giving" those spoilers. I've got the batphone hooked straight to my local EB which is only about .5 mi from my place of employment. When I get the call, I open the little statue's head, push the button, slide down the batpole and jet to the store to procure my very own copy. Then I'll be flying in no time.

ps. Please don't wake me from my deluded state. I'm quite happy there.

I`m sorry, I will be off the forums during that time. Why?

Because i`m sure there will be complaints and whines, "Why did my TA152 get blown away? The Spitfire`s crap! Oleg, this isn`t right- that isn`t right! Blah! blahblahblah! MOAN, etc" And this wil be just in the first half - hour!!

It`ll ruin the whole thing for me seeing this TWO WEEKS before I even get it!

Spoilers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif : Yes, would love to know what's in it, what's new, what to look forward to. Please, tell us all!

Whines http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif : No, do not want to know from the graph monkeys that the plane(s) I'm really looking forward to flying are only 94.763% accurate according to the bumper almanac of useless conjecture.

Cheers, Spinner

Edit : SeaFireLIV, you beat me to it. Although perhaps optimistically I probably will be reading these boards.

Unfortunaltely, AEP planes will probably come with a tank full of Whine Fuel grade avgas for some. If EB ships it as soon as they get it, I'll have it about 5 days behind the rest of the N. Americans. Why dosen't everyone who plays it in English preorder from a US site? I'm stationed in Japan, and I'm not waiting until the Saints win the SuperBowl for the base exchange to get it on the shelves....

Good hunting,

I don't quite understand the diffrence in release dates. Isn't there always the risks that illegal and ripped copies can be downloaded from across the Ocean so, we Europeans won't buy the game anymore?

Not that I intend to do so, I've allready ordered my copy but, I'm just wondering.

It's doubly daft this time around as there will be a downloadable add-on to the add-on. Us Brits and other Euros/non North-Americans will be able to download the Part II, but not the Part I to play it with, which we'll have to wait for.

Can't wait for the day everything's downloadable with secure payment options.

About the release date... Launching a PC game in the USA first is not only rude regarding the rest of the community, it also clears the path for illegal downloads.

Now, I for myself will buy the ACE Expansion Pack no matter what. But it sure is tempting to download it for free via a fileshare program, just to be able to play it "on time".

I don't intend to do so, but hell, the Warcraft 3 Expansion also was released simultanously, I don't know why so many publishers still limit their own profits by releasing a game at different times all over the world. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Ah, the Saints. If they wouldn't have given Jake away then it might have been quicker that you get your copy. I am a diehard Saints fan but they act stupid sometimes. Anyway I am gonna wait till payday to get AEP so I will like to hear how the EP 'feels'.
