That's right, people in the UK, you no longer have to wait until November 1st. Ubisoft have no stated that AC4 Black Flag on Current Gen is releasing WORLDWIDE on the 29th October 2013!

(Oh I hate this happening! LOL I will be away from home and my console anyway on that week due to work *wails and curls up into a ball in the corner* So I think I will say goodbye for a while to the forums, dA and tumblr to avoid spoilers...)

If not the day before, sometimes they deliver a day or so early, other wise it will be on the day.

im sure the courier / postman will leave a card for you if you are not home - it may be expensive to alter flights etc.

Problem is if she is away for more than 5 days it goes back ... (might be 10 depends on courier).

However agree changing flights seems a little drastic, i'd change delivery address.

Yes... I think I will have to change address now. lol Only thing is I'm moving house on 1st Nov, too! Everything is against me playing the game! haha!

Okay, I just called Game Mania, (a dutch game store, same as American GameStop) and they told me that the release date is still the 31th of October.... He said he'll look on "a site" probably their own and told me it still says 31/10/13 so IDK. :/ Is it going to change or going to stay like this? I am really really happy that it's worldwide and 2 days earlier but if I get it 2 days later I will be really pissed off.

The release date has only just been announced, so may take a while to filter though to the retailers.

Only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have altered, as per the pinned thread.

PC, Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One remain what was previously announced.

if you are buying one of those then it's unchanged.

Always check the official pinned threads.. I maybe didn't make it clear here, since I missed where you said the 29th for PS4, I thought it said PS3 ;)

Okay, is it normal that the store where I pre-ordered the game still tells me that the game will be released on 31/10/13? I went there after school and they told me that it's still that date and when I tried telling him about the worldwide release thing he went "Let me check on our site, ooooh still 31/10..." am I dumb or does the site update itself when there's something that needs to be changed or do they do it? He didn't even let me finish my phrase. He could've looked it up on an official site or something so he can confirm it and change it but no... Gosh I really hate it when things like this happen..

Relax, I preordered at a large online store here in the Netherlands and they haven't changed the date either yet. It takes some time for all retailers to make the changes.

I'll just wait and hope they'll change it.

@SixKeys Do they get a message from someone telling them it changed or do they look it up themselves?

They should be notified, if they are a large company, directly.


When they are able to change it, depends on their staff etc.



Personally? I would contact their customer services and check they are aware of it, rather than wait and see.

No idea. I went to their store at the time a few days after the new release date was announced online, to ask for confirmation on their part, and they said they didn't know anything about it and didn't bother to look it up while I was there. I assume they get an official confirmation of delay from Ubisoft at some point and then relay this information to customers - so whether it was Ubi that was late in informing them or if the store just took their sweet time informing their customers I can't say.

Different retailers work in different ways, of course. I think I pre-ordered ACR from Free Record Shop and got the delay confirmation really late, whereas when I pre-ordered ACB from Dixon's they were nice and timely about informing me of the PC delay.

I have no problem with it looking like AC3. It's just a bit ridiculous that I can't seem to find any 360 version gameplay vids. In all honesty though, when I first saw some gameplay vids on youtube, I assumed it was the PS3/360 version. Then I found out it was PS4. Make of that what you will.

As long as things haven't been left out of the current gen versions and it at least runs as "good" as AC3 then I'm really not bothered. I'm not a graphics *****. Hell, I'm a guy that is currently playing the awesome Hotline Miami on PSN. Have you seen what that looks like?

The only reason I want an Xbox One at launch is for Forza 5. There's absolutely nothing else I would buy one for. And there's nothing at all I would buy a PS4 for at launch. Neither console is worth buying one for AC4 though either if it can be played on current gen up to the same standard as AC3....

And I'm not one for launch consoles anyway. I wont forget the ridiculous problems that the 360 had and the amount of times I had the crappy hardware fail on me. And the PS3. It'll probably be 6 months before they iron out the kinks.

I think my launch PS3 actually stopped working after a few months. It was the one with backwards-compatibility, but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. :(

In my house, I think we're on PS3 no. 3, but I think it depends on how much use it gets and by how many people. :P
