I see that, but why is it telling me the 13th on that? I don't understand it at all...

sales

probably a case of "dont tell them they have a chance to cancel the order"

pull them up on this and as they count the money they will say "oops,sorry"

I got my legit from a cd keys company, paid 28 for my code and they just sent it to me last night, weird. But yes, very lucky :)

I don't know how deep it goes with the "In App Purchases" because i'm staying away from spoilers.

Such a shame, being a huge fan and not even knowing the release date correctly, why can't it be the same for all of the EU? that makes no sense to me, really not happy about this.

Can't believe i took a day off to play this thing. Would be nice if Uplay actually said it's coming out 14th not 13th.. **** this

strigoi did you get your code from cdkeys?

I'm in the UK and am wondering if it sounds like people with CD Keys codes can play it?

If you look at the sticky you can see it says 'Assassin's Creed Unity Launching November 11 in US, November 13 in EMEA',

Obviously there has been a delay by one day, in the united kingdom AC Unity launch is midnight tonight which is 13/11/14, this is at Game.co.uk retail shop near where i live.

Look at the OP, the uplay screen says the 13th.

If it can tell you are in the UK, it should read the 14th, not the 13th.

Midnight tonight is 00:00:00 - 14/11/2014, it's not 24:00:00 - 13/11/2014

Phew, glad i'm not the only one with this issue. from what i've read so far it seems that it opens on Uplay at 11:59pm on the 13th, Instead of 00:00am on the 14th, which is why it's saying the 13th sadly.

At least we're aware now, that's something I guess lol

Midnight tonight is 00:00:00 - 14/11/2014.Midnight tonight is 13/11/14, if it was midnight 14/11/14 then one second past midnight would make it 15/11/14, lol.

Shouldn't that be "characters with clothes? pay 4.99 pence for naked"?

thats so weird, im in uk too, got an eu pre order key off g2a for 24 quid, it was delivered last night, preloaded all night till 1pm today and i thought i would get the same as you and not be able to play till 14th, and to my surprise i could play... then the game loaded up and i couldnt play lol cos the game runs like arse... think ubi have stuck their head in the poop this time tbh, im a big ac fan but having to run this at 1366x768 to be able to push the textures up a bit and still suffer with terrible cutscene frame drops and stuff is gash. my rig is ok at i52500k clocked to 4.5ghz gtx 760 2gb (yes i know its not the best but tbh i shouldnt need the latest card every year imho the card only got released last year so... meh) in general the game has run fine except for cutscenes and when there is literally a screen FULL of npc's but ill definitely need to replay this when i can afford an upgrade to see how it feels then, maybe in a year or two :(

I also bought this directly from ubisoft, as it's not available on the UK Steam store (which would have been my preferred method of buying it) - but I can't find a way to even preload it. Is it supposed to be simply 'look in games list, select game, click preload'? If so, the game isn't there to select it. I can only hope that it appears at midnight, or soon after.

Given that I've already had problems with other aspects of my Unity preorder, and I also experienced problems with AC3, which was the only other game I've bought directly from Ubisoft, plus the fact I've actually never had a single problem buying any of my games from Steam, and my Steam library has passed the 300 mark, I think in future it's going to be a case of if Ubi decides to yank a game from Steam, then I just don't buy it.

If you own the game and are signed into the Uplay client it should appear in your Uplay Games page with a "pre-ordered" label over the game box picture. If its not there you should contact Ubi support. Im in the UK and ive been able to Pre-load since Monday. I'm just waiting for it to unlock, hopefully at midnight.
