It says you'll have access to the exclusive stuff on the release date so the rest of us will probably get it sooner or later anyway.

So regardless of the fact that I bought every previous console title and the digital deluxe edition for AC3 plus spent extra money on some credits in multi-player and have been a long-standing dedicated fan for years I would have to pre-order a game I know almost nothing about to be eligible to receive information on it? Ubisoft has let me down even further with this...

It doesn't say it has to be the Black Chest edition that you preorder. I'm talking about this:

Hi there,

There will be plenty of information about the game, available to the general public, before the games release - however The Watch - is for dedicated fans, so they may get bonus content / information for being such a dedicated fan / pre-ordering and supporting the game. ;)


I will also be deleting posts - with that content, so no cheating!


I'm trying to get a collated list of retailers / methods for getting a code - I know some of you are waiting on this - and will have a nice list hopefully by the end of the week.

The Watch codes will be available from the following UK retailers:

Game – Preorder in store and get your code on the receipt and a physical map
Amazon Online – Preorder online and get sent a code and a digital map via email
Tesco – Preorder in store in early April to get a code and physical map.

Others to follow.

If you have already pre-ordered from these retailers, you should contact them when the codes are released to make sure you do not miss out!

Seems if I wanted to pre-order the Black Chest or Buccaneer Editions I won't be able to get a code for The Watch. Not sure how a code marketed for dedicated fans wouldn't be available for those who pre-order the best editions. Maybe that will change though.

Mr_Shade
03-26-2013, 01:14 PM
You should get a code for any version of the game - as long as it's from a retailer doing the offer.

how come the black chest edition is so much more expensive than the buccaneer edition ? They´re almost the same. Just curious.

'almost the same' - but a bit more in the Black chest edition..

- Premium Quality 55 cm Diorama of Captain Edward on the Jackdaw’s Bow [bigger than other versions]

- Exclusive SteelBook™ [not in other versions]

- 2 canvas prints [these are block prints ready to hang - not just paper!]

- Collector’s box [sturdy box for all your booty]

o Parchment world map [not in other versions]

o An original Black Flag replica [not in other versions]


So.. not quite the 'same' ;)

Nah, the figurine is bigger, you get 2 canvas prints, a flag, the worldmap, the steelbook and more ULC (= all preorderbonuspacks). I would say it's ok... (Although this will be the first time that I buy the PC version and not the PS3 version, mainreason is the pricedifference. It's 20€ (not sure in £) and I don't get why. I know that PC Games are always cheaper that consolegames but that is just too much. Buccaneeredition has a difference of 10€ that's a normal range afaik.)

nitres15
03-26-2013, 03:44 PM
h. Buccaneeredition has a difference of 10€ that's a normal range afaik.)
it costs atleast a third more than the buccaneer edition(or atleast it does here). and the figurine doesn´t look larger at all, the only difference is the bow of of the ship(which i guess makes it biger but not Edward himself)

UrDeviant1
03-26-2013, 03:52 PM
It's 10cm bigger. 55cm overall and that's pretty frickin' huge. And the canvases look to be A4 size.

I talked about the difference between the same edition for different plattforms. For PC I pay 90€ for the Buccaneer and for the consoles 100€. For the Black Chest Edition there is a bigger difference of 20€ and that just because it's not a PC-DVD but a XBox-DVD/Ps3-Blu-Ray/whatever. And I do not know why the difference there is bigger.

As I said, in my opinion the difference between Skull (75€/80€), Buccaneer (90€/100€) and Black Chest (130€/150€) is ok. I just wondered that it's 130€ or 150€ and not 130€ or 140€ depending on he platform.

And yes, the figure is bigger because of the ship, but that does not chance the fact that there is more material used and that it is bigger.

the Buccaneer one costs 670 crowns, the black chest edition costs 1100 crowns. Just to put it in perspective.

Well that is really unfair. Maybe some gamers will preorder AC4 from retailer that is not in program and that means he is less important. Also what with players who purchased all AC games till now? Some Loyalty program for us could be really good idea.

So your saying despite my YEARS of dedication to the series I'm not considered a dedicated fan eligible for any of this? This is where I have no choice but to get upset, I have been supporting this series since before it ever became big and that means squat, huh? All you guys seem to care about is money. -____-

the Buccaneer one costs 670 crowns, the black chest edition costs 1100 crowns. Just to put it in perspective.

I know , kind of a ridiculous price jump for the content difference.

a steel case
a parchment map
A piece of Coth (Flag )
2 canvas prints ........... supposedly justifies almost doubling the price over the Buccaneer content .


Not for me , I'd rather take the Buccaneer edition @ £80 from GAME .......... Make my own replica black cloth flag & choose my own Artwork to have printed onto canvas in a size of my choice for about £20.
so i'll pre-order Buccaneer for PS3 (until PS4 details emerge)

The extra height on the Black chest edition statue ? ............. Yep 10 cm taller , Just a shame the mast that Edward is standing on looks odd so near the Bow.
So the Buccaneer design would seem to be the original version anyway , The Bow seems tacked on for the sake of variety .

After how terrible Revelations was and the countless bugs of ACIII and all the problems with the story (showing an obvious rush job) why should I blindly pre-order a game? It's not exactly cheap for me, are you implying you only see me as a fan if I blindly throw my money at you?

That means despite contributing a few hundred dollars and being the sole reason I switched from nintendo consoles (I was extremely hyped for ACII) you expect sixty more to even consider me a fan worthy of any extra content or information.
Yet somebody who has played none of the games and is just starting and places a pre-order is considered a dedicated fan, yet I am not?
Your statement is solid proof you have no real respect for your fan base and only care about the money...

I agree with you all about preordering ACIV:BF without seeing actual gameplay footage. The game looks pretty decent so far as i can see and i have no doubt that i will get it when it comes out. However I usually order from the US and so far as I can tell we will have to wait a long while to see any Collector's edition available for there. Muchless one to preorder to get access to The Watch. The only NA edition is the Gamestop edition and i havent seen even there offering this bonus

No prob. I don't bother about the physical extras, and everything else will get released eventually anyway, so...

Edit: It let me order!


Pre-order Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag with us at Amazon.co.uk and you'll receive the Trove of Mystery Bonus (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_174079567_3?ie=UTF8&docId=1000711603&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=0M881M3ENMRWHF48Y8QY&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=393398827&pf_rd_i=B00BRCCAT4), containing Golden Dual Swords Singleplayer Weapon, Treasure Hunter Multiplayer Costume, Special Wheel, Multiplayer Relic and access to 'The Watch'.

well not many games announce with a walk through of a mission..

However you have the choice to do so or not.


There are no details about the content The Watch has - so I wouldn't assume it's vital to enjoying the game, it's most likely just a bonus.


People have asked in the past for special bonus items / info for pre-ordering - so this is it - however I can see not everyone is 100% happy.

The naval portion of the demo should show off new features of the naval portion of the game and I wouldn't mind if they showed off the scope of the world a bit more. I would love to see a bit of open-world gameplay so I know what we're going to be seeing. I would also like to see some underwater things.

I'm not saying he can change what the company is doing but I was rather offended being told I'm not considered a fan simply because I won't pre-order a game several months in advance.
It was basically making me feel like I meant absolutely nothing as a fan that's been around for years, and all that mattered was who's paying now.
Personally I like to know as much as I can and where to go for the best bonuses, I'm actually waiting to see if there's going to be a digital deluxe edition with all the bonus content like there was for AC3.

That certainly was not my intention.

The Watch is exclusive to those who pre-order, if you don't wish too - that is your right, however if you do not, I can't say when or if you will be able to get the bonus info / content /whatever they release through it.

As it's a bonus for pre-ordering, it's likely there will be a delay in releasing it to the 'general public' however I can't say for certain when, if at all - all of the extra content will be available to all.

So rather than saying 'it's OK - you will get it all soon after' - I have to say about pre-ordering, if you want to be 1000% certain of seeing everything.

The Watch site is not live yet, so codes maybe emailed out when it is - or at a preset time by your retailer / region.

In the UK you do, so it's likely you will have to in other regions.

In the UK:
Game – Preorder in store and get your code on the receipt and a physical map
Amazon Online – Preorder online and get sent a code and a digital map via email
Tesco – Preorder in store in early April to get a code and physical map.



Your Ubi.com site should have details if /when this happens - or check with your retailers locally.

I do not have information on regions other than the UK.

That certainly was not my intention.

The Watch is exclusive to those who pre-order, if you don't wish too - that is your right, however if you do not, I can't say when or if you will be able to get the bonus info / content /whatever they release through it.

As it's a bonus for pre-ordering, it's likely there will be a delay in releasing it to the 'general public' however I can't say for certain when, if at all - all of the extra content will be available to all.

So rather than saying 'it's OK - you will get it all soon after' - I have to say about pre-ordering, if you want to be 1000% certain of seeing everything.

I can understand bonus content for pre-orders, I really do, just try to make sure it's phrased as such and not a reward for "loyal customers/ fans" because that's a put-down to those who wait for the best bonuses or more information but have been loyal fans for years.

Well if you're willing to fork out £120 for it I'd say that makes you a pretty dedicated fan. Quit being a sissy.

You're right, how much you spend is directly related to whether or not you're a dedicated fan and has nothing to do with your previous purchases or how you're an active part of the community. [/sarcasm]
So you're implying simply because I do not buy the collector's edition I'm not a fan or a part of the community?

That's not what I'm implying, that's just what you're inferring because you're being too sensitive about it. Some people are dedicated to every aspect of the franchise, some people not so much. You might be dedicated to following the games but some people go the extra mile and absorb everything to do with the franchise, which includes paying money for things such as this.

Hi there,

There will be plenty of information about the game, available to the general public, before the games release - however The Watch - is for dedicated fans, so they may get bonus content / information for being such a dedicated fan / pre-ordering and supporting the game. ;)



I will also be deleting posts - with that content, so no cheating!


I'm trying to get a collated list of retailers / methods for getting a code - I know some of you are waiting on this - and will have a nice list hopefully by the end of the week.

The Watch codes will be available from the following UK retailers:

Game – Preorder in store and get your code on the receipt and a physical map
Amazon Online – Preorder online and get sent a code and a digital map via email
Tesco – Preorder in store in early April to get a code and physical map.

Others to follow.

If you have already pre-ordered from these retailers, you should contact them when the codes are released to make sure you do not miss out!

So, I have Pre-Ordered at GameStop In North America. I am a dedicated fan and I seem to have a problem with trying to locate the code. I can not find it on the receipt which bothers me there, but I dunno if there is a code on my Poster/Map that I got with the map on one side and the Todd McFlarlane artwork on the other. Can you try and help me understand a bit more about where the code would most likely be ? I would much appreciate it if you answered back too. Thank you if you do get this message and try to help me.

I'm wondering if they will give us a poorly done Collector's Edition like they did with AC: III. I still got the Limited Edition despite it having very little to give. I hope they give a Collector's Edition to NA that is worth the buy for AC:IV: BF. But we will only wait and see! :D

Mr_Shade

codes may go out in batches - so you should check with support early next week.

The support team do not work weekends, and it's a bank holiday in the UK - so the UK team will be back on Tuesday.

You can leave a ticket on the site though for them, however like I said, it maybe nextweek before you hear back.

Trust me, I would be buying up every assassin's creed related item I could if I could afford it, I can't though... I make due with what I got, which isn't much right now.
If I can afford a collector's edition by the time the game comes out, I'll get one, but things are tight right now so I probably won't.
I'll probably just opt for a digital deluxe edition if they have one, like I did with AC3, which is currently the only reason I'm waiting on pre-ordering.

You should contact them - they may not have your contact details if you didn't order online.


Some stores now have the information /codes, according to other members I have spoken to, so worth checking - as long as your passing etc.


For others waiting on codes, it's the retailers job to supply them - if they are part of the pre-order incentive, so please contact them directly.

Hi - for ubishop / Uplay orders - please contact support for problems with codes - however support are updating the systems at present, so there maybe a short added delay.


I can only apologise for the inconvenience.



For other retailers - please contact them directly - since they will be responsible for codes.

Online orders, you should get a code emailed to you - this maybe after your initial order confirmation - please contact them for details.

For Highstreet [bricks and mortar] stores - you should be given a code when you pre-order, if you have pre-ordered already, before The Watch was announced - please contact them for details.


The above information is for retailers who are part of the promotion - if you have questions about if certain retailers are, please contact them directly.

Can they take payment for 'the watch' / product without providing a date of arrival for your access code ? .....................

This doesn't sound like access to a site for pre-order customers / or dedicated fans - it sounds more like 'forum membership fee' disguised as a pre-order 'GIFT' .

Well i activated my 'Watch' account this afternoon .

Pre ordered PS3 Buccaneer 'Game' edition .............. from game.co.uk .
Pride of the West indies DLC + Map activation code arrived instantly with pre-order confirmation e-mail.

I intend to order the Edward twin pistol figurine from Ubi-shop ................ but i'll wait until they announce full PS4 editions / content .
Well Black Chest Edition is available to Pre ordre for PS4.

According to Ubisoft Support should the The Watch code begin to be send out to buyer in Mid April, which means this or next week

Like i said - i'll wait until full ps4 editions & content are announced ............... Without even a confirmed date for next gen - Extra content & DLC advertised could change for PS4. (hopefully)

As i've now ordered AC4 Buccaneer PS3 with it's collectables .......... the 'Extra' content of the current PS4 Black chest edition doesn't justify another £120 + game purchase for me - I'd only be getting the benefit of the PS4 DLC mini missions & costumes for that £120 .

I hadnt recieved my code for the watch so got in touch with amazon yesyterday who told me they normally send then out within 48 hours of pre-ordering the game and there had been a delay with mine but had been done that morning, today I got the code and im now signed up for the watch :-)

Hey guys
I got reply from support, finally.

"We expect The Watch codes to be sent mid April. As you have ordered a physical edition of the game, you will receive your code as a physical delivery. We do not have an exact date on which the Watch will be released but you will receive a notification email when it is dispatched"

Due to boxed shipping for my order, my code will be send by the card, or map, whatever, I saw it once someone else showed to me before.

If there is somebody like me ordered an physical edition, what you can do is only waiting. Wait ubi mails you the code for the watch.

BUT, nobody will know when I can receive it. Hope it won't cost too long time. I even have no idea where it's sent from, UK or Australia. I'm in Australia BTW.

I think THE WATCH looks like a test forum. And Ubisoft is really not ready for this.
Hope everything will be better later.
Why does it can be send as digital code? I've wondered this for 2 weeks after my order.

Wow, they're really going to send everyone who orders a physical copy a code in the mail?

Seems a bit stupid really when they could simply email the code.

I'm not complaining though if it means we get a map with the code on it or something.

I ordered a physical copy Buccaneer edition from Game.co.uk - received an e-mail instantly with the WATCH activation code
(this also came with a link to an ingame map available at launch & Digital Map to download now)

So ubisoft taking any longer makes little sense to me.

i just can't see that being right, I can't see them sending out a physical letter when they it's quicker, easier and more cost efficient to send an email and like someone else said they got their code straight away. Just seems like they've sent that to keep you happy. Unless they are sending us the preorder poster too in which case, as you were ubisoft :)

Chances are if you've pre-ordered it in a retail store Before Ubisoft announced the UBISHOP editions for your country or even the WATCH itself - Then it's unlikely Gamestop retail outlets would know about this promotion just yet.

GAME.co.uk online include an exclusive treasure location as DLC & i got a digital map (pride of west indies) .......
so the code i received to activate this DLC & map also activated the watch.

Could be as you've ordered the Gamestop 'standard edition' - you're activation code for the watch will be with your 'Black Island' DLC in the box.
( your black island DLC code that will be with the game probably IS the watch activation code actually )

04-12-2013, 12:59 PM
Does anyone know if there is a way to redeem multiple codes for The Watch. I've pre ordered at both Game and Amazon.co.uk and have got the codes form both. However once i redeemed the code from Game i can't get back to the webpage where you input the code as it just automatically puts you through to the main website. I tried ubisoft support but so far they've just said to contact the retailer, who have nothing to do with it. I wouldn't be too bothered if it was just the access to the Watch that was provided but as they've tied the pre order content to them i want to make sure i get both. Irrational managed it with the Bioshock Infinite Industrial Revolution website so surely Ubisoft can.
I greatly appreciate any help and i suspect there are other fans out there that plan on multiple pre orders that will also run into the same issue.

They know nothing of it at this point in time either way. So that point is moot.

I won't know if it's the code until the game is released and it's shipped to me. I also pre-ordered the GameStop Edition of AC IV.

Game etc - do not change for pre-ordering?

Or if you have to pay a small deposit - you could ask them IF you can swap the order over - should you not want that version? - most stores are happy to do this.

PS4 Console - £400 / £800 (uk) ...................my complete guess of course.
I'd like just the game with ALL pre-order DLC on launch day for PS4 , (doubt i'll be given that option at all though) -
I already ordered Buccaneer collector's for PS3 , so another £120 for PS4 Black Chest makes little sense .

i'll wait till we have a confirmed release before ordering a PS4 game , & i would've thought the next gen editions would contain something extra for DLC at least .

Does anyone know if GameStop is giving out "The Watch" codes here in NA?

You could always Check with 'Gamestop.com' for info / details about any 'gamestop exclusive' AC4 Pre-order codes they are offering .
Or you could wait until Ubisoft actually announces 'Collectors editions' for NA .

'THE WATCH' codes - The codes needed to activate the WATCH are the DLC codes for extra content . (most included inside the game box upon release)

IF Gamestop (at present or at a later date ) offer something extra or exclusive to their edition & you order from Gamestop online store, You MAY receive a DLC code via e-mail. (they only sell standard gamestop edition so far - No collectors editions )

Some EB stores around the world & GAME.co.uk had 'exclusive' HAVANA treasure location as their exclusive content ...................... Not a standard DLC mission with a costume/weapons like Black island DLC.
Because these small DLC treasures aren't the standard Main DLC packs - The codes for these come directly from EB games & GAME.co.uk via e-mail.
This is how some have the access code for the Watch at the moment .

Yeah probably - just have to wait .
Black chest DLC is all included in the Black chest box i think ..............so your DLC / Activation code will probably be one of those DLC codes.

I only have MY Watch activation code already because i ordered Buccaneer 'GAME' exclusive edition from Game.uk online -
which came with a seperate DLC & map code , not mentioned in the 4 standard Black Chest DLC packs , or the Ubisoft Buccaneer edition .

Seems retail exclusives get you earlier access than Ubishop offers ................But the 'WATCH' site isn't active until launch day anyway.

If you live in the UK - which it appears you do, you have access to the watch - since it's one of the EMEA regions with it - it's also on the site /invoice :)

Its the official shop from the published, so its not that abnormal to order from there.

Also, when i pre-ordered AC3 when it was announced, i basicly got the season pass for almost nothing (cause it was announced later). Whole edition was 70@. Season pass alone is 30, and then there is the collector stuff like the notebook and the soundtrack.

So yes, excuse me when i like to order from there

Thank you for contacting Uplay Shop Customer Service.

In order to respond to this email, please update this incident (Please do not create a new incident)

Your The Watch code should be sent out to you sometime soon, shipped as a physical item.
So guess we can only wait and well November 1 is long way yet

I would contact Ubisoft Support and tell them what you just told us. Hopefully then they can inform Game HQ and relay what needs to be done to all the UK stores.

You pre-ordered from GAME - your order contract is with GAME , Not Ubisoft .
The instant you tell game this offer is mentioned on a website other than theirs - you'll be given the standard response "" Not our problem - Not our statements" .

I suggest you contact GAME.CO.UK again with This link below stating this 'Bonus Offer' ...................
http://www.game.co.uk/en/assassins-creed-iv-black-flag-exclusive-special-edition-216291 From game.co. uk website .

This clearly states customers who already pre-ordered will receive a code too. & limited offer while stocks last.


While Ubisoft state the offer in uk is Exclusive to Retailers - GAME & Amazon.co.uk

I DO NOT Know if this offer is for ALL 'Game retail outlets' (a Store on the highstreet) or if exclusive to GAME.co.uk ( Online retail )

GAME.co.uk online Are sending DLC Watch codes to online pre-order customers (i got mine April 9th seconds after ordering)

It looks like GAME.co.uk have probably run out of codes at this point. I pre-ordered on the 10th, and didn't receive one. After contacting them today they first claimed they didn't know anything about the codes, then said that they haven't been sent any codes from Ubisoft yet:
Unfortunately we have not yet received a copy of the codes from the publisher, as soon as we have these we will be able to email these out. I do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Really? I got the pre-order and order confirmation emails, but not The Watch code. I've checked my spam folder plenty of times. I know the offer is still there, because I pointed it out to the support worker. I don't get why I haven't received a code.

The person I talked to on support was maybe just confused. I'll contact them again at some point to see if I get a different response.

This is response I received
"Thank you for your email.

We have the pre-order bonus of the in game treasure map pack but nothing related to "the watch" . These should be distributed via email to those who have preordered Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag, if you did not receive one it is likely you will be email one in due course close to release but we cannot issue replacements as we have not received spare codes."
So looks like im not going to receive a code :(

The pre-order bonus 'in game' treasure map code that GAME mention IS the DLC activation code people use to Access 'The Watch'. it's directly related.

Glad you got it at last - I knew GAME were still issuing PS3 & X360 codes though .


I just ordered PS4 Black chest from Ubishop ............... @ 8 p.m - Paypal payment confirmation & receipt received @ 8:03 pm .

Still waiting for ANY order confirmation or acknowledgement from Ubisoft themselves though still @ 8:26 pm ........... SLOW MUCH ??

I preordered my ps4 black chest edition on the first day it was available and I still don't have my code, about to send Ubisoft an email, I'll let you know how I get on.

Edit; just checked my account and have checked my order and it has changed to 'order in process. And they have changed the preorder bonus to mention the flag and watch code which it didn't mention before. So it looks like mine will be posted soon.

I ordered another buccaneer edtion from GB GAMES few days ago, and got my pre-code this time.

(I have ordered black chest edtion from ushop, but I can't wait it until next month or few months later. I don't know when ubi could ship it to me, even they told me they could delivery it after mid of April. But it's mid of May already.)

It's bigger than A4. Maybe it depends on different retailers. That's Australian edion pre-code, I think.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7376/8729527931_3c7de62a00_c.jpg

Pre-code is not printed on recipe when you pay for it, but another map, like this.
It's a map on one side, and pre-code is on the other side.
However, to be honest, it's really nothing worthy in THE WATCH. If you want to play most things in vedio, I think we have to wait the game release date.

I did only one mission in THE WATCH.
Here u can see below.
【 I'm not sure whether I can upload this screenshot or not. If it should be kept as secret and is only available for those who have precode, jsut let me know, I can delete it.】

My poster is different to yours! Mines got 6 points of interest and is called the pirates trophy. My guess is that's its because I ordered the black chest edition

Dag_B
05-13-2013, 12:10 AM
Yeah, the map has the name of the preorderpack that you get on it and the points of interest relate directly to the ingameitems you get. So there should be 3 maps, pirates trophy, pride of the west indies and... I forgot the english name of the last one.

Does anyone know which pack you get from Ubisoft if you preorder a edition different from the black chest?
I also thought that pirates trophy might be only for persons that preorder black chest on the other hand, the "all preorders pack" is an items that belongs to the Black Chest edition and is no preorder item. (Which means, you should get them too, if you do not preorder BC.)
So is it Ubishops Preorderpack or do they really send different packs depending on your order?

Edit:
Trove of Mystery and The Castaway’s Prize are the names of the other packs. So there should be 4 maps. ^^
