Good point about the Ausy thing. But i think we should petition Ubisoft to make a black edition for the US. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

i just orderd the black edition, now i hope the U.S doesent get a limited editoin with a "white" figurine of ezio cause i would much rather have that that be honest... and the balck edition didnt cot any more then any other new x360 game, but the SE of ac2 was cheaper,, (Black edit cost me like 59)

06-13-2009, 10:47 AM
Changed my pre-order of ACII to ACII Black edition today. Costs about $30(AUS) more than the regular edition. The Black Edition comes out 2 days after the regular, so on November 19th.

Hope I can survive two more days... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

Interesting fact:
Australia's EB Games prices the products at
Normal Edition (all platforms): $100
Black Edition (360 and PS3): $150
Black Edition (PC): $130

I know which console I'M buying it for.

that would be cool... but it doesn't

06-14-2009, 10:13 PM
in the e309 trailer during the end of the video where ezio messes with the gun on his wrist, if you watch very carefully you can see a wedding ring on his left hand on the ring finger. Basically this could be a clue that he his married or something like that. A big twist to the series and what to look forward to.

the black edition is not coming to north america. or at least it hasn't been announced yet.

i believe there was an interview a while back where someone from ubisoft said that Black Edition is NOT coming to US or Canada. you can probably get it on ebay though (when it comes out of course...)

Thankyou, sir/mamn. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif (annoying newb problem)

The Black Edition isn't being sold in the US for unknown reasons, so the only way you'd be able to get your hands on a copy is to get someone (relative/friend) to purchase a copy and post it to you. Since it's around Christmas time, you'll probably get away with not having to pay them back.

Enjoy your stay at the forums.

09-14-2009, 11:52 PM
thats messed up i dont know why they wouldnt wanna do it and i am out of luck i dont know anyone there but someone said they bought it online and it cost about the same as any 360 game damn i really hope they change their mind before the game comes out because people are actually bugging ubi soft to release it in the u.s. also so i really dont know i guess all i can do is hope

09-14-2009, 11:59 PM
Get the Master Assassin edition.
it's pretty similar to the Black edition

09-15-2009, 12:01 AM
This thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/8591064287) has all the current info on all the ACII editions.

09-15-2009, 12:05 AM
thanks man but do you atleast think they ll make a dlc for it ???atleast sorry for being kinda of annoying its just i heard about this today i ve been busy with so much i just remembered about my acII i reserved i need to finish paying off

09-15-2009, 12:11 AM
Not that we know of yet. The bonus missions are just extra explorations into historical structures and events within then, I doubt they play a major part in the story (else they would've included them in the normal edition).

Regardless of what edition you get, be assured that ACII is going to be sweet.

09-15-2009, 12:15 AM
i know acII is ganna be sweet i loved part 1 the story was very good but kinda easy to predict i just hope this story will be a little hard to put together because i love games that make me think hard it puts more of a ambition to the story and makes the story so much better but i am getting the master assassin edition its better then not having that sweet figure and i hope that theres ganna be like different endings like how you react with people will effect you later in the game and are you a fan or work with them????

09-15-2009, 12:44 AM
Just a rabid fan suffering from the bleeding effect... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Good to see others who appreciate the story.

09-15-2009, 12:52 AM
lmao yeah it is good to know there are fans that are impatiently waiting for this game to come out i am also awaiting for mw2,bioshock2, and acII as you see but i really want this game more because its more about history kinda then any other game i just wish the black edition came out here in the u.s. :-( this really is up setting what system you getting this for ???

09-15-2009, 01:01 AM
PC, Black Edition, I literally ran to the store to change my pre-order as soon as I heard about it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I'll get MW2 as well, but I probably won't pre-order it. I wish we could get something cooler with the BlkEd, there's a collector's edition of MW2 that comes with a pair of NVGs.

Still awaiting news on Thief 4 and Hitman 5.

09-15-2009, 01:08 AM
the prestige edition to me is pointless whos really ganna use the nightvison lol thats where acII is just smart with the statue and art work with the sound tracks **** i wish i lived in uk or had fam there iwould love to get it for the 360 it would be awsome to rub it in my friends faces but o well just gotta deal with it but do you know more about the story of acII besides the fact as you play as someone different in the family like whats happening in the modern age for them because the symbols in the end of AC kinda threw me off because i dont understand it its just weird symbols

09-15-2009, 01:26 AM
If you search through the forum (can't remember which thread it was, use the 'Find' button) there's a large explanation of all the symbols at the end and their meanings.

As for ACII, we know that the story will be similar to AC1 in that Ezio will start off on a quest for vengance and later seeks only justice. Ezio is a young Italian noble of Florence who doesn't start out as an Assassin at first but later learns to become one in order to survive. He was betrayed by the ruling families of Italy (Templars) and they murdered his father (who was an Assassin, and a banker... if that's important). Ezio, now without many allies, seeks help from Leonardo da Vinci who supplies Ezio with fancy gadgets and equipment (including the flying machine/glider and the hidden blade w. gun). He also makes contact with his uncle Mario who teaches him fighting skills and Machiavelli who does... something. Along the way he makes friends with the underground (thieves, mercenaries and courteseans) which "become his new family" that, aside from providing assistance via various means, play a part in the story as well. One of the faction leaders is an Assassin and Mario is also the merc leader. Throughout the story Ezio learns about his Assassin heritage and the whole 'Cake vs. Pie' (in joke, means 'Assassin vs. Templar') thing and discovers the Codex, which is a sort of Assassin guide book written by Altair himself (probably in one of the catacomb missions, one of which is compulsory). As well as hunting down those responsible for his grief Ezio also has to protect his mother and sister. There is also a series of short films about Ezio's father that act as a prologue to ACII, done by the same guys who did Sin City and 300. Release dates still unconfirmed.

That's all I can recall for now... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

09-16-2009, 01:59 AM
lol damn the story sounds mad good i just wounder if the people searching his mind will one be a ally or all of them are just ganna use him and why would they need to know the code of the assassin's basically the book of assassin's well i wanna know whats going on in the present world to but those symbols throw me off lol i am dumb so dont mind you should get a 360 man its alot easier and bettter mw2 edition is 400 with 250g hd 2 wireless remotes 1 headseat and the game and cables of course but its worth the money

09-16-2009, 02:12 AM
I'm more of a PC person, everything's just easier on it. And apparently Desmond is helping the Assassins this time (possibly with a different Animus).

09-16-2009, 02:17 AM
for real how you found that out the story seems to be getting better you make me wanna play it more i hope they come out with a demo atleast before it comes out i wanna try a part of it seems pretty cool and i am not much pc its to hard for me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

i forgot i have a idea that would be awsome for the game but i dont know how to get in contact have any ideas

09-16-2009, 03:02 AM
It's probably a bit late for submitting ideas about ACII, they're already in the final stage of development. If it's about ACIII I don't think it would hurt to shoot them a couple of idead (not literally!) through here, I think. (http://www.ubisoftgroup.com/index.php?sit_id=2) And share your ideas with the rest of us as well, just make sure they havn't been brought up before.

09-16-2009, 03:32 AM
i would love to share my ideas but i wouldnt really like if someone would take it lol its just how i am but i have a good idea that they can do to make this game so much better and fun but until then i will be waiting for a responce from them so wish me luck lol if i do this you would be the first to find out since your basically the only friend i got in this forum
