So... I'm about to start getting ready for the midnight release party at the local GameStop. What is everyone else doing on release night?

I'm waiting to download it, then I fall asleep at 5 am due to wondering if I can run it at 900p or 720p. At least I know it'll run though :)

Sadly waiting til 3am because I bought through Uplay. Bet they don't actually release it at 12AM ET, probably 3AM so West Coast gets a midnight release. :'(

Yeah. I'm on the East Coast in Florida. It's 11:30PM EST as I type this post up. UPLAY is up and running and ACU is still unavailable for download. Here is a screenshot of my games page for ACU:

That's incredibly frustrating. Pre-order it, only to be punished with a 3 hour delay to download it. Steam users were able to start the download earlier today, wish they'd have done the same.

Wow. Wish I'd known this beforehand. I would have just gone to Gamestop tonight instead of pre-ordering from Uplay. Lesson learned, I guess. :-\

Have fun, all you digital download people. :) I have to wait until sometime tomorrow for my physical copy to get delivered. Hopefully it'll be well before noon. I only have tomorrow off to play as much as I want, I wouldn't want all that time to go to waste.

As much as I'd love to be playing, I cannot. I'm on the east coast, and my download doesn't unlock till midnight PST, which is in 3 hours. (I pre-ordered from Amazon, wanted the sweet looking axe)

Oh well, it's probably better, in the long run. I actually need to be productive tomorrow. If I had it now, there'd be no sleeping :p

Yep, whats a double FU to those of us who got directly from uPlay is those who got the uPlay version from GreenManGaming already got their keys and are able to download and play it.

Its amazing to me that the company who made the game cannot even provide it at midnight in each region.

Is that when the game is going to show up in our library - midnight tonight?

Because right now I'm not even seeing the game in the Uplay thing? Is it supposed to be there by now? When should I start to get worried?

Yes, pretty much this. I had also pre-ordered DA:I and it unlocks at midnight est, 11pm cst, 10pm mst and 9pm pst. I thought it would be the same for ACU. Shows how little I know.

I could have gone and stood in line at Gamestop for the physical copy and be playing long before I'll even be allowed to download this way. I won't pre-order on Uplay anymore. Like I said, lesson learned :(

Even if you purchase the physical copy, you still have numerous items to download. I've seen it many times.

As much as I enjoy the entire AC series, and I pre-purchased ACU, UPLAY and UBISOFT have pissed me off as a customer for many years now. With no US access to physical collector's editions that are offered in Europe, to sub-standard gold and/or deluxe editions, to no pre-load abilities, to poor download speeds, launch day fiasco's, game breaking bugs, and confusing launch day release times, it's a wonder they still keep me as a customer.

If your reading this thread UBISOFT...PLEASE stop hurting your customers in this manner. Soon enough the quality of the product will not be enough to offset the inferiority of the delivery.
