Hey i've got a question about this.

i preorderd the game at a website that was on the assassin's creed website " http://assassinscreed.ubi.com/ac3/nl-NL/koop-nu/index.aspx#main10 ",
that means it's a participating retailer right?
well here's the thing they never gave me a code to use.
so should i contact them about a code? or just wait untill they send me one?

I already figured out why i don't have the code btw
i need to get a "treasure map"at the store itself

They would normally email the code out - however you should double check.

Is this available everywhere in Europe? I'm from Norway, so more specifically; Will I get a code if I go to for example Gamestop and pre-order one of the special editions here in Norway?

04-26-2013, 06:00 PM
I checked with the store, i ordered it online but in order to get the code, i need to go to the actual store and get the code there.
And i'll have to make a small down payment.

Ubishop customers please contact support, with your order information.

Hi Mr Shade! While Ubishop included "The Watch" in my pre-order invoice, I've received no pre-order code. The last time I tried to raise an issue with support I had a pretty bad experience as one department would wash their hands of the problem and pass me onto another. I have a sneaking suspicion if I raise a support ticket against 'Uplay/Ubishop/Billing' they will not be able to help me. Can you you offer any guidance regarding the proper way to raise the issue with 'support' so that it ends in the right inbox? Annecdotally, it seems I'm not the only customer to preorder AC4 from Ubishop with this issue. Thanks.

So I know you referred us to the retailer for codes, but I'm going to ask anyways. I preordered a month ago and got the macfarlane poster with the map on the back. Was there supposed to be a code on it or is this map with the code a new thing that I need to get from the retailer? Maybe you can put up a picture of the map and point to where the code is.

Your The Watch code should be sent out to you as a physical item sometime in the near future.

I thought that I would receive it on e-mail immediately after purchase.

NO - 'The Watch' is Only for EMEA/ European regional customers at the moment .

USA Gamestop customers get only what is offered by Gamestop.com USA = Mcfarlane Poster. :nonchalance:

Somebody made an interesting observation on another forum about "The Watch" the other day. I have to agree with them in saying that this is nothing more than Halo Waypoint, but for AC or AC Waypoint if you will.

You wait until Ubisoft are convinced enough to offer pre-orders for NEXT BOX edition - Seems Ubisoft aren't rushing to get pre-orders in for Nextbox edition at present.

Will North America ever get this? I would like to be able to get in on this but it's EU only. I didn't know that until a little while ago and therefore Gamestop had no clue of what I was talking about.

Personally I think it's cool that we seem to get the treasure map too that GameStop and Amazon offer.
As far as I know you do not get that everywhere, GAME for example seem to just send codes.

Like i said - 'The Watch' is Only for EMEA/ European regional customers at the moment . No idea if the Watch is permanently EMEA only .

Simply pre-order nearer to Nov 1st - When details of every edition in every region are confirmed.
If Gamestop in NA only ever get standard/special editions - you haven't lost anything by waiting longer to pre-order.

Same with me. Preordered the Black Chest edition. But received nothing via email. What is going on? I mean we should receive the code now, not when the game is released. C'mon i spent £120 pounds for that edition, so someone at least should check this issue properly. What is the point in having it in October, if THE Watch is live now. When i pre-ordered this edition, they put in my basket the chest edition and a separate treasure map with the code. I just want to know if that will be posted to during this week or next one (it said 2-4 days for postage). I hope i am right, otherwise is a totally let down for all of us. Thank you.

BTW i live in UK and have all the AC games ultimate editions, so i am not a noob or so:D

I got told yesterday, that my Code + Tresure map had been ship, so should arrive in the near future :)


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.

Guess it's the same for you

Any idea how long Ubisoft take to actually confirm an order has been placed ?

I ordered 45 minutes ago & only have pay-pal payment confirmation so far - nothing from Ubisoft . :rolleyes:

No idea, sorry. My confirmation (Black Chest PC) came like a minute later.
I payed via... direct debiting system (? where you give your bankdata and they withdraw it from your bank account). Maybe that makes a difference. :confused:

Today, I’ve recieved my Black Chest Pre-Order Map from Ubishop and I’m very very disapointed.
Others shops sent me their maps and they are perfectly, but, the Ubishop Map is folded.
You can see the differences in this image:

Others maps (Brotherhood, Liberation, AC3 guide) are made with glossy paper and it doesn’t matter folding them but these are made like a vintage paper as the Altaļr Codex and the fold marks do the map horrible.I think that after paying 150€ for the Black Chest Edition we deserved a map in perfect condition.
It will be possible that I change it soon?
I hope yes

I thought The Watch for European Areas was announced on March 25th same time as Collector editions. :confused: , Available via Ubi-shop & Game.co.uk .

( i received a code from GAME within seconds .............& a code from ubi-shop within 4 days )

If you have your 'Order number' - I Suggest contacting 'whoever you ordered from' & ask about your pre-order content .

Who said it was an "Exclusive to the segragation Experts gang" ? I bloody didn't lol

What was given to us, me and 1 other person to my knowledge, can be bought anywhere online. Its not just about "community", personally its a job to me, a job we don't get paid for doing, we do it because we love and support the franchise.
So forgive me if Ubisoft/Assassin's Creed send me a little something as a thank you for a ****ton of hard work and I want to say thank you back lmfao!!!!

A Public thank you for a Private award ...............What was the point if not to show everybody else You're more valued to Ubisoft -

Half the playerbase is already excluded from even joining this site for dedicated fans who support the franchise (buy actually buying the merchandise ) ,
Just ask North America .


A Private thank you in a P.M would make more sense for a private matter . but the "LMFAO & Stop crying" attitude seems to be infectious amongst those 'included' in the gang ,whenever non members question anything . :rolleyes:

.Ok ye, on reflection, putting a thanks in the thread does seem stupid and I'm sorry, but it wasn't to show anything, but my gratitude

I am annoyed North America cant join the site though, but hopefully they well do soon, just like sooner or later the site will be open to everyone (the same thing they do with pre-order content)

The "LMFAO & Stop crying" was directed at you simply because since day one you have complained, hell you directed that personally at me in PM within an hour of me getting my Expert Sig, why? because I had one....
Like I said then, you have a problem? Take it up with the AC team, the people who made The Watch, picked the Experts and made the decisions. NOT the people who feel lucky as hell to be given such an opportunity.

Right click on the SIGNATURE i posted & Copy . ( or copy full URL address )
Go to your 'settings' - Edit Signature .................. In the White message box click the Add Image icon . & PASTE the signature into the signature message.

Assassins creed 4 black flag wishlist

If you agree with this share so someone from ubisoft might see it!

First of all..
I dint like the hole pirate theme to an ac game but in a new franchise I would love it. I think that ac should be in places and time periods you don’t know much about. So not America. I would like to see less famous places like Georgia, Fiji or Nepal, But done is done and Ubisoft cant change that now so im not going to talk about that more. And im focusing on what to improve, There are some things in ac4 that seems to be good. And im not changing it to much, just small little improvements. Im not talking of how bad the story is, because there are already so many youtube videos covering that.

Stealth

What is stealth?
Ac should be about stealth, the ac3 developers doesn’t seem to know what stealth is, so let me explain what it is. Stealth is when you sneak around not being detected. The reason to do this is often because its to hard just run up and kill everyone. With that being said I think that the guards should be harder. In ac3 the developers said something like this, “well, you can use stealth if you want to, now you can choose either to be stealthy or just run up and kill everyone.” It might sound good, but when you are playing stealthy you should fear to be detected. In the the ac games I didn’t feel that. Because when you got detected you could just kill everyone so easy. So its hard to make a good game when youre combining stealth and easy fighting, Ubisoft should decide wich one they want, not both. I, as many, prefere stealth.


Another thing is the detection system. In many situations in ac3 its almost impossible to be stealthy because of many small little things. When they see you a little bit, and youre trying to, lets say hiding in a haybale,you automaticly jump out the haybale, I mean you should at least be able to try to hide if you want to.
I think that should kill as small amount of people as possible, in order to innovate players to do this, make the guards shearch around everywere if they see a dead body, if they add this feature, you would also need to hide dead bodys, in previos ac games the guards would just look at the dead body for a while and then continue as nothing happened.
Stealth features

Stealth was gone in ac3, though they gave some new stealth features like pushing yourself up against corners and trees and crouching in bushes. To improve this they should add some new features. Something I always wanted in ac games was the ability to crouch and lay down. This would make the stealth more realistic and more fun. It would look a lot cooler to crouch up to a guard and kill him in some situations than go straight up and casually kill him. It would also make you hide behind smaller objects such as boxes. Lay down would make you crawl behind really small objects, and maybe even under some objects. The push yourself against the corner could be improved by being able to push yourself against walls without standing in a corner. Another feature I think would be cool is if you could throw a rock or a coin to attract guards.

Stealthy environment
Ac3 didn’t had stealthy environment. The roothtops were flat and boring and the little things you hide on roothtops in were gone. The frontier were also pretty flat and open, its to hard to be stealthy in that kind of environment. I hope that the djungels in ac4 will be a lot more dense and uneven, what ive seen so far in the trailers it actually seems to be it. The citys also look more uneven and should be fun to be stealthy in. Acr had (in my opinion) a very good city with a lot buildings.

Missions
Mission setup
The ac4 developers have sad that ac4 mission setup will be similar to ac1, that they give you a simple objective and then you choose in an open area how you want to accomplish that. This is a very good thing and in, especially acr and ac3, the missions were very un controllable and you coudnt choose what you wanted to do, you had to follow a specific path. But in ac1 that missions were in a very small area and it was very easy. I hope that in Ac4 You will get, lets say a target that you are suppose to kill. You will be in a kinda big area with a lot of buildings, boxes bushes and trees. And then with all the stealth fetures I wrote about. Try to kill him in any way you want.
Side missions
The side missions in ac3 was terrible. The letter missions were all the same, really easy and very repetitive. The only sidemissions that were kind of good were the homestead missions.
The side missions in ac4 should fit in to the pirate theme, some of them should be connected to the main story and you should do them because they are interesting not just because they are in the game. Red dead redemption has really good side mission setup. They were interesting you didn’t have to finish them right away, for instince, in one mission you needed money to do the side mission, and if you didn’t have that, you would have to wait. It also have some infinite side missions, like ac4 have in sea called the horizontal system, hope they have it on land to. Basicly you can just randomly go by someone who needs help, a ship to board or a whale to harpoon. This is keeping you busy all the time.
Connor is everywere!
One thing I hated in ac3 was that a lot of the missions had nothing to do with the templars and assassins, only the American revolution. Connor meets every single historical character , and every historical events Connor is there. And its not just like he is watching it he, just a random guy, all the sudden gets in charge of a army or a cannon, and its just so weird!
I hope they bring back mystery and puzzles like in ac2, but in mayan ruins.

Small problems
A few small features I didn’t like in ac games.
In ac3 they removed the locking system wich I didn’t like. Very often when im in a fight and want to pick up a rifle, I cant just unlock them and pick it up anymore, now I have to run around a bit to get rid of the lock and pick it up.
In ac2 brotherhood and revelations you had medicine that made your health full, I didn’t like that. In ac3 they removed it. Good! But it takes to long to die, its to easy. And the health is coming back to fast.
Making money is way to easy in the ac games, and when you do its just sending convoys and stuff. You should having to work to get money. And in ac you get money from every main mission for some reason.
This list goes on and on and I don’t feel like going through all the small problems...

If you agree with this share so someone from ubisoft might see it!

I think there's a problem with the badges.
http://gyazo.com/6c1267577fe3d4553a85114019013a0a

If I look at the code, my disguise level is 3*, but my badge icon still blue. Also, I think that's not the symbol of that badge, it looks more like a compass, I think is the Maps badge.

*If you check out the others it is clear that level 1 = blue, level 2 = silver, level 3 = gold.

Your 360 DLC activation isn't valid for XB1 content . Contact the retailer you pre-ordered with to see what happens with order changes.

I think the P.O.W.E Content is linked to your U-play account & console is determined by activation code . (x360 DLC pre-order code is different to PS3 DLC pre-order code)

Different DLC code will be given for XB1 edition ( I Guess) - This activates XB1 DLC for your U-play account .
When you play XB1 AC4 - Link your XB1 account to your U-play , then download . (I Guess)

I pre-ordered the Buccaneer edition of AC4 from GAME (UK) who are listed as a participating retailer, and the offer is listed on GAME's product page, however I still don't have a code to participate in The Watch. I have been waiting about 3 months now and emailed GAME a while ago regarding the issue. Their response was that they have not received any codes from Ubisoft for The Watch to email out to customers who have pre-ordered yet, and that I should continue waiting.

Has anyone else pre-ordering the PS4 edition from GAME received their codes? If they have already all been sent out I won't be happy, as I pre-ordered months ago. I'll cancel my pre-order and order direct from Ubi if this is the case, but would just like to know what the situation is first. Thanks in advance!

They give you three clues, which can be found in three pictures I assume. Supposedly you'll find the picture clues in the gallery (where members upload pics/vids). But I think there are so many uploads every hour, the clues get buried right away. You can guess the three coordinates by moving the slider in the compass (it'll flash green when correct). I'm not sure if there's any penalty for guessing though.

Not sure about the availability of codes at GAME but they were supposed to give out 3 codes to current members. But it seems like that was cancelled too.

The community is pretty straightforward, you just upload pics/vids and get points (I guess the pts go towards prizes but not sure if they're all given away already). That's it really. :p

That's exactly the point I was trying to trying to make to GAME, that if there are rewards which are limited then I am missing out due to no code! I know I'm not missing out on anything major, but still I choose to pre-order to participate in these things. Bah! They won't get my money then, simple. I'll re-pre-order from Ubi.

They list three clues I think, right? Each clue leads to one set of coordinates. I think you're supposed to find the clues in the Gallery feed, but they get buried cause of so many uploads. You can guess the coords (should take less than 5 min) but I'm not sure if that leads to a penalty of points.

Philip Gosse is an author, there is a behind the black flag article about his book on pirates, you just have to find the article to get the coordinates.
to find coordinates you need to use the clues they give you to find them hidden in the news, expert and gallery feeds, don't forget you can filter the feeds to make it easer to find things in them,

For the first mission (philip gosse, etc.) the coordinates are as followed:

Hello,

Is there a special subforum for asking for support regarding The Watch? I seem to have a problem with the "Master of Recruitment" mission - two of the three friends I gave codes to have signed up, but I haven't received anything. Will I only receive points after all three have signed up?

Thanks

I found the philip gosse aricle and the 260w codes in that. is it a simple thing then to go through all the articles for codes? I am concerned about the last clue and going through the gallery as it's being updated by the minute.....

Not really. Since there is no field to enter a code into...
I'd say press CTRL-U and look for a link to something that will then indicate you found it. Something like that trailer where you had to pause to find the secrets. Haven't found it myself though. Anyone know where to look exactly?

index = 0;

if ( e === code[ index ] ) {
++ index;
if ( index === code.length ) {


Backbone.Mediator.publish("route","/",true);
Backbone.Mediator.publish("route","mission/hack", false);

$( window ).unbind( 'keyup', testCode );

It should give you access to the Watch with your uplay username+password and the code o_O

I sometimes have a problem logging in the Watch, it keeps asking me the access code I've added a long time ago. But after waiting a bit I'm able to log in with no problem (with only username+password combo).

Hi, everyone. I can't access my The Pirate's Trophy pre-order content via the code on my map - I have a Uplay account, and when I connect, it sends me to the page where you choose your platform and email address (it explicitly says "Assassin! To unlock your exclusive in-game content please select one of the following consoles:"). It just won't let me select Xbox 360 as a console; all the options it gives are PC, PS3 and PS4. Don't tell me the content is exclusive to those platforms! Because I pre-ordered the game for Xbox in May and I think it would be ridiculous for Ubisoft to provide me with an unlock code that doesn't work for the game that I will be receiving. Any ideas?

Edit: I have just checked the source code and the remaining three options are available - I just can't access them in the drop-down menu.

Too right shadow. I have the same problem as you only for PS3 and PS4. On my first redemption I chose PS3 when given a choice of platform. Then when I went back in with my second code I was not given a choice of platform. Infact my two Watch codes solicited the same Watch content activation key WTF.

DEADEAGLE. I followed your link and from what I can tell it didn't clarify this particular issue. It only related to single codes not activation of separate codes on separate platforms. I have sent a PM regarding this but the whole Ubi support thing is convoluted to say the least.
