I have no idea why people go crazy for all this stuff, when everybody knows it'll all come out later as DLC...

The place you preorder from should be based strictly on convenience; which in my case is always Gamestop since there's one five minutes away from my house. I'll be getting early access to the Captain Morgan gun and the black ship (whatever that is) and then a few weeks later I'll inevitably download all the other stuff.

Don't worry about it. Only buy the basic game for the cheapest price you can find close to launch. Do not buy a season pass. Wait, and pick up the DLC you want when it falls to a sensible price, if at all. You're a fan, and therefore you'll play the game more than once. Wait to play it a second time to celebrate your eventual DLC purchase, and then play the complete game as it was meant to be.

The likelihood is that none of this is truly exclusive, and if it is, it's probably something forgettable that constitutes a tiny amount of the game. Sure, if you buy an expensive box you get some of it on day one, but it's almost certainly disappointing stuff. If there's anything really good coming, it's not going to be in these day one boxes.

The sword of Eden is a usable weapon? Do you think it'll work just as a sword or will it have special powers? Also, do you think it plays a part in the storyline? So far the only Pieces of Eden we've used in the game have been Apples and Staffs. It'd be interesting to discover more about the others.

No, it just says that you get for example "Black island quest" by preordering from GameStop OR in the Buccaneer Edition (regardless where you buy it) OR in the Black Chest edition (which is Uplayexclusive but the mission is in the Box so no need to preorder at GS). And so on.

According to the Assasin's Creed wikia, "The Swords of Eden were sword-like artifacts created by the First Civilization. These Pieces of Eden seemed to grant their bearers great power and leadership, and were most commonly used by influential humans in war and conquest. Several famous conquerors and heroes had been in possession of a Sword of Eden." Excalibur, for example, was in fact a sword of Eden used by Arthur to become king of Britain. So yeah, it will probably have superpowers like the pieces of Eden.

Wait, Sword of Eden? As unique pre-order content? Isn't the Sword supposed to be this really important piece of the lore, like the Apple, not just some throaway weapon? This is like turning the Staff into a pre-order weapon. :mad:

Also, the Kenway family sword has an eagle symbol and the assassin symbol. Spoilers about the story, much?

The eagle is not an assassin symbol, it's related specifically to Desmond's bloodline. And Edward doesn't start out as an assassin, he meets them later during the story. So we can assume the sword must either be a gift from the assassins or Edward finds out he comes from a family of assassins (hence his bloodline is directly related to Desmond).

I wonder if you understand that both connor, haytham and edward are descendents from desmond ergo all have that "connection" to eagles.

No, Edward was with the assassins as young man/boy and was trained by them. Later in his life he splitted up with them somehow and became a pirate (so now he is "a pirate that was trained by assassins"). We do not know when and why but we do know that he was formerly with the assassins and isn't later.
At least that was my understanding. Otherwise he wouldn't be "a pirate that was trained by assassin" but "a pirate that will somehow become involved with assassins and might or might not start training with them". And that would give a lot of things of the story away as we know that we start as a pirate that has nothing to do with assassins at the moment.

And as far as I know, we only know that Edward will get in trouble with the templars (not sure where I read/heared that), I am not sure if I read anything about a meeting with assassins. I mean, we already know that Haythems relationship with assassins so you can guess what'll happen, but this is nothing that the sword gives away when we assume it's something Edward got in his youth while still training with them.

And that the Kenways are connected with Desmond is also something we already know...

That was exactly my point. -___- Connor and Haytham are clearly Desmond's ancestors, we know this for a fact. As for Edward, we don't actually know. His hood is missing the traditional eagle beak which has always been a trademark of that particular bloodline. That already seems to indicate there's something different about him. It's possible that Haytham actually gets his genes from his mother whom Edward will marry later. The person looking through Edward's memories no longer needs to be a direct descendant, so Edward doesn't even have to be related to Desmond.

But Edward is definitely related to Desmond. He's Haytham's dad. Half of Haytham's genes are from Edward. Desmond could not be related to Haytham and Connor but not Edward.

This is correct. Just as Maria Thorpe, Maria Auditore, Sofia Sartor and whoever Connor conceived Desmond's ancestor are all Desmond's ancestors. Just like your grandparents, they are both your ancestors, not just one of them.

And half of Haytham's genes are from Edward's wife. I'm not sure I see your point.

We know, for example, that Giovanni Auditore didn't have Eagle Vision. We never found out whether Maria did, though. When we were first present at Ezio's birth, we started out watching the events from Maria's point of view. So maybe Ezio's assassin genes didn't come from Giovanni but Maria. Giovanni could have been recruited into the order without actually being part of the same bloodline as Desmond and Altaïr. This could be the case with Edward and Haytham, too. Edward could have been an ordinary Joe Schmoe who got recruited into the order at some point in his life but didn't actually have TWCB DNA. At some point he meets his future wife who does have the DNA, and she gives birth to Haytham.

I think you're a little confused there.

Everyone there are in fact Desmond's ancestors, Altair's parents and Maria Thorpe's parents are all Desmond's ancestors, Giovanni and Maria too, Edward and his wife too, Haytham and Ziio too, Connor and whoever he did it with too. Are you saying to me that only one of your grandparents is your ancestor? No, they are both your ancestors.

Also, for those saying the Kenway sword is a spoiler, not necessarily. Edward gave Haytham a short sword as a child; Edward could have been the one who first commissioned it from a blacksmith (or even just retrofitted the eagle adornment to it) after becoming an Assassin, and him passing it down to Haytham makes it the "family" sword.

They could never add something that significant as a preorder bonus. There's no way Edward's going to be able to just walk around and unleash a POE whenever he feels like it (especially since you're basically a god already in AC games). But like I said, it may show up in a brief segment like the Apple did in Brotherhood.

It may be similar to Desmond's skin in ACB - it was just cosmetic but Desy himself had his own story segments, even one inside the Animus (the Truth)

I agree. It should absolutely be the customer's decision, and not weighted by a worry that they might not get to experience everything the other guy did, just cause the other guy bought their game someplace else. They should either have a pre-order bonus or don't, there's no reason for it to be different for different places.I like to support smaller chains like Play N Trade and local indy merchants when I can and I really don't think it should be Ubisoft's concern to boost sales for one merchant over another.

Also, these days, you rarely run into places running out of popular titles even on day 1. So, there's not much of a reason to pre-order unless you're getting a limited or collector's edition, which usually aren't kept in stock. I understand the reasoning behind pre-order bonuses trying to boost those numbers, but the exclusivity is just a load horse crap, if you ask me.

(i find it weird that they were called "man-o-war" considering that ships had female names)

Wow... That is a ton of pre-order stuff. Honestly I think the reason they are also doing that is because, they are really trying to push the fact of everything being "custom" to the way each player experiences the game. Which I think might actually go into the new aspect of being an abstergo entertainment worker, you are now going through the past lives of these people and now You get todecide how you will do it. and where you explore and what weapons you use.

I doubt they thought about it that deeply. All this stuff will eventually be released as DLC anyway so the whole concept of customizing the player's experience is moot.

More than likely. They always end up releasing a GOTY edition with everything inside, but we will see.

Here's my simple solution. I'm going to buy the AC III Washington Edition (or a GOTY Edition) for 29,99 when AC4:Only Half Baked gets released for 69,99, and buy the complete AC4 for 29,99 when AC5 gets released.

I'm getting the complete editions to begin with, and I'm probably saving a lot more than 100 bucks. I have been playing this "we'll release an incomplete game at an exaggerated price and milk your wallet with more DLCs" game long enough with Brotherhood and Revelations. I'm not going to do that any longer.

What's next? Micro transactions for every little piece of crap inside the game? Thanks, but no thanks.

Honestly, it's just a way of milking the cash cow.

You'a re right, they always do the same. I still want to get everything at some point, though.

So The Captain Morgan Costume is an actual Costume for the game or is it only for Multiplayer only? Either way, I can't wait. I got my Map/Poster which the Map shows me hidden treasures around the world. My GS pre-order and my Alestorm music. I do hope we get all of this Exclusive content later on in DLC Packs. Also, I don't know if anyone has clarified about "The Watch" thing either. Is it coming to NA at all?

I thought the Captain Morgan’s outfit is for Edward, it's even him wearing it in the preview picture.
But it seems to be MP stuff, as threadstarter stated.

Black Island Content
* The dark and dangerous treasure-hunting quest: Black Island.
* The deadly Black Ship.
* Legendary silver flintlock pistols used by Captain Morgan.
* Valuable multiplayer items including Captain Morgan's costume, picture, and title.

And we do not know anything about The Watch in america. I'd guess they'll announce it, when they announce the collector editions for this region. :S
At the moment you can not get in in NA.

It could be a actual Costume for Edward. Because it does state "Valuable multiplayer items (The Picture and Title) INCLUDING Captain Morgan's Costume." So I have a good feeling its an actual Costume. And either that or The Watch wasn't meant for the U.S. OH WELL I'LL HOIST THE BLACK FLAG ANYWAY XD

A real costume would be nice. :)
I hope they do look like announced this time, it was disappointing with AC III.

And I'm still missing a parrot-pack!

Hahahahaha! Parrot-Pack XD That cracked me up. I wish we could get a really cool Collector's Edition though. I wouldn't mind paying for one that has a few extra DLC packs included with valuable items inside a box. I mean. The Black Island Edition isn't much. I would've liked it if they gave you a sword in the package. Like they did with AC: Revelations and III. But alas, you don't get one. Though if they do bring out one of those Season Pass things again I'll buy that too. PRAISE THE PIZZA LORD! LET US GET A GOOD COLLECTOR'S EDITION IN NA!

That's because it's a fake made with the Golden Dual Sword image.

Is it me, or the amount of exclusive ingame content is getting ridiculously high?
It's just you!

You can never have too much exclusive dlc's for a game! :D

I preordered from Amazon. They have a dew DLC exclusives but that honestly doesn't really matter to me. The ones from AC3 are kind of short if that is anything to go by. The better content is probably going to be with the season pass purchase. I have to admit though, it would be nice to have an edition with ALL DLC.

It's too much. I'm already not getting the ps3 extra content. So i say **** that. If I can't have all I don't want none

In the end it'll probably all come out for those that bought the Season Pass in another "Hidden Secrets" pack anyway.
