Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features some of the most infamous pirates in history, such as Blackbeard and Charles Vane, and takes players on a journey throughout the West Indies during a turbulent and violent period of time later to become known as the Golden Age of Pirates.

Hi Shade,

I was weak and ordered the Black Chest edition from uplay (**** special editions get me every time!). In the invoice and email there are two list items one for the Black Chest edition and one for The Watch. Well went to the website you kindly linked, to have a look at The Watch, and it says I need a promotional code to enter but I cannot find one in my documents... am I missing something? Does it get sent out a bit later or something like that?

Cheers.

I will just add my two cents worth of saying buyer beware, since ubisoft has still failed to show any interest in fixing the glitched up AC3 so that you're not constantly running into game play glitches I see no reason to support them in their latest release of Black Flag so until they're ready to show the gamers that purchased AC3 that they will stand behind their products I see no reason to spend hard earned cash on the next glitched up software they release. I have played AC3 for thousands of hours and sent them info on glitch after glitch and I may not be on any leader board for the game itself but as far as glitches found and reported in the game I'm sure I lead there LOL and the tech's know what I've reported to be accurate but they have no say in when they will be fixed or if they ever will be, UbiSoft engineers just sit in the shadows and say nothing to the gaming world when or ever they will fix some of the major plagues that are found in this game, I found in the DCL packs glitches that should not ever be in a game release but well they just say Oop's! sorry for your inconvenience. Please don't think I don't like the game because I do, I've played all of them from the start and I remember the glitches in them as well however with those they fixed the major glitches and showed they would support future fixes for them, however the same can't be said for AC3, they fixed nothing more than cosmetics and online multiplayer issues but barely touched the main heart of the game problems on the single player side which has the greatest part of glitches.

Hi Meester,

I ordered it from the Ubishop (http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubiemea/en_AU/pd/ThemeID.8605700/productID.277009400/Assassins-Creed-IV-Black-Flag-The-Black-Chest-Edition.html), bare in mind that this is the Australian Ubishop store. If you're referring to The Watch inclusion, if you click the pre-order its included in the items there, but there is no reference to it in the base description.

Cheers,

Rob

What the **** is Ubisofts problem this is the fourth time FOURTH time they have stiffed non European countries on GOOD collectors editions **** they even keep the SPECIAL edition for themselves they might aswell just call all of the collectors editions the U.K editions the united states gets the gamestop edition of the game and it just comes with bonus dlc THATS IT!!! I don't think the other countries are even getting anything beyond the STANDARD edition of the game. Does Ubisoft have something against non European countries or do they just enjoy pissing non European countries off?
Don't get me wrong I love Europe I have family over there I just find it so frustrating that we cant get equal collectors editon and anyone who is actually willing to sell there expects $2,000 got to ebay I bet you will find an unopened version of assassins creed brotherhood codex edition for ONETHOUSAND dollars at the least. Are these people high? seriously ubisoft we want to throw money at you TAKE OUR MONEY!!!!

Hi there!

I'm from Hungary, central Europe, but unfortunately, we do not have the Black Chest edition. I want to ask if it's possible to order Black Chest to my friend, who lives in the UK, and so he can bring it home to me, and if it's like he has to log in to my account in the UK, and order it, or he can order it with his own account without the collector edition getting bind to his account. Sorry for my English ^_^;

Thanks, Sai

Same happend to me, they only have it available for a short period of time then the take it away. Why they do that, thats a question for the Ubisoft team. Luckly I have a Xbox360 so il get my Edition to that console. But I feel yah, ive played the whole franchise on the PC. So it sucks.

Riddle me this; where be the uPlay exclusive digital only edition? I managed to secure Watch_Dogs that way. All I really want is the digital content, not all of the physical stuff.

I've been waiting patiently for it to be offered but it has yet to appear. Is there going to be a digital only version? If not, why not? It's worked well enough for Watch_Dogs.

I to am looking for a Digital Deluxe Edition for the PC in the US. I'd like to see the DDE have all the Digital IN-GAME content that the Black Chest edition has to offer: Three exclusive single player missions - Black Island, Hidden Mystery, and Sacrificed Secrets as well as the Lost Treasures and Trove of Mystery packs and none of the physical extras. I purchase the majority of my PC games online and have no interest is giving my business to third party retailers such as Gamestop, Walmart and the like. If at all possible I'd rather purchase games directly from the company making and producing the game.

STEAM is also an option as well that I'd like to see, however I do have a UPLAY account (obviously) and the Download Manager installed so either method of acquiring the game is preferable to a physical storefront.

@Mr_Shade When you say " All existing additional Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Unlockable In-Game Content, including single player missions, skins and weapons" do you intend also season pass and other DLC lately announced (like Aveline missions, for example) or just the alredy announced digital contents? Because i'm a little bit angry discovering that after preordering the Black chest months ago, two days ago a Digital deluxe edition appeared on Steam and Ubishop and it contains some dlc that aren't into the Black chest. Do you think they will be released as separate dlc, or they remain exclusive as Benedict Arnold for AC3, that i cant have, because i've the Freedom edition? Thanks for the answer and sorry for some eventual mistakes, i'm from Italy...

Season Pass with Adewale missions (not to be mistaken with Aveline)
Resources Pack
Collectibles Pack

It seems to that in contrast to AC3 there isn't even a digital version this time around that contains all DLC that is available from the start:

Black Chest Edition
According to the product description this version should contain every pre-order DLC:

3 missions (Black Island, Mystery Island, Sacrifice Island)
3 outfits (Captain Drake, Captain Morgan, Stede Bonnet)
5 weapons (Captain Drake's Dual Swords & Flintlocks, Captain Morgan's Silver Flintlocks, German Rapiers, Golden Scimitars)
4 ship items (Deadly Black Ship, Stede Bonnet's Ship, Iron Wheel, Ivory Wheel)
2 multiplayer costumes (Treasure Hunter Costume, costume for the Mercenary)
4 multiplayer titles (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
4 patron images (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
7 relics (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's, Astrolabe Relic, Compass Relic, Spyglass Relic)
Resources Pack, Collectibles Pack? This is not clear as they were just annouced for the Gold Edition.


Digital Deluxe Editon


4+ missions (Aveline memories, Black Island, Mystery Island, Sacrifice Island)
4 outfits (Captain Drake, Captain Morgan, Stede Bonnet and an undisclosed one)
4 weapons (Captain Drake's Dual Swords & Flintlocks, Captain Morgan's Silver Flintlocks, Golden Scimitars)
5 ship items (Deadly Black Ship, Stede Bonnet's Ship, Iron Wheel, Ivory Wheel & probably Aveline Ship Figurehead)
2 multiplayer costumes (Treasure Hunter Costume, costume for the Mercenary)
4 multiplayer titles (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
4 patron images (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
4 relics (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)


Gold Edition

Season Pass (Adéwalé memories, Kraken Ship, new multiplayer avatars etc., not everything will be available from the start)
4+ missions (Aveline memories, Black Island, Mystery Island, Sacrifice Island)
3 outfits (Captain Drake, Captain Morgan, Stede Bonnet)
5 weapons (Captain Drake's Dual Swords & Flintlocks, Captain Morgan's Silver Flintlocks, German Rapiers, Golden Scimitars)
4 ship items (Deadly Black Ship, Stede Bonnet's Ship, Iron Wheel, Aveline Ship Figurehead)
2 multiplayer costumes (Treasure Hunter Costume, costume for the Mercenary)
4 multiplayer titles (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
4 patron images (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's)
6 relics (Captain Drake's, Captain Morgan's, Treasure Hunter's, costume for the Mercenary's, Astrolabe Relic, Compass Relic)


Additional DLC (not included in any edition)


Benajmin Hornigold figurine (Hornigold's Sails)
Black Bart figurine (Black Bart's Sails) also be included in the Lethal Pirate Edition
Blackbeard figurine (Blackbeard's Sails)
Connor figurine (Connor's Sails)
Edward Kenway figurine (Edward Kenway's Family Sword)
Haythem Kenway figurine (Dark blue outfit for Edward)
Ratonhnhaké:ton figurine (unlocks an achievement for Assassin's Creed Initiates, talk about lame)

Buying the Blackbeard figurine from the Ubishop grants Black Bart's Sails, Blackbeard's Sails & Hornigold's Sails, while buying the Edward Kenway figurine gets you codes for Connor's Sails, Edward Kenway's Family Sword and the dark blue outfit for Edward.

I counted 13 different pre-oder/edition packs and together with the Season Pass, the Aveline missions and these figurines it's pretty clear that Ubisoft is no longer able to communitate with its customers, just with the retailers. Brotherhood was the last game where the complete content could be acquiered with a retail box, Assassin's Creed III was the last game where the complete content could be purchased at least digitally, now that seems to be impossible either.

Additional DLC (not included in any edition)


Benajmin Hornigold figurine (Hornigold's Sails)
Black Bart figurine (Black Bart's Sails) also be included in the Lethal Pirate Edition
Blackbeard figurine (Blackbeard's Sails)
Connor figurine (Connor's Sails)
Edward Kenway figurine (Edward Kenway's Family Sword)
Haythem Kenway figurine (Dark blue outfit for Edward)
Ratonhnhaké:ton figurine (unlocks an achievement for Assassin's Creed Initiates, talk about lame)

Buying the Blackbeard figurine from the Ubishop grants Black Bart's Sails, Blackbeard's Sails & Hornigold's Sails, while buying the Edward Kenway figurine gets you codes for Connor's Sails, Edward Kenway's Family Sword and the dark blue outfit for Edward.

I counted 13 different pre-oder/edition packs and together with the Season Pass, the Aveline missions and these figurines it's pretty clear that Ubisoft is no longer able to communitate with its customers, just with the retailers. Brotherhood was the last game where the complete content could be acquiered with a retail box, Assassin's Creed III was the last game where the complete content could be purchased at least digitally, now that seems to be impossible either.

It seems you understood what i means: What is the "most complete" edition? By price should be the Black chest, by contents the Deluxe gold. That i don't understand is why if i pay more, (black chest) than i have less....

Ok, so I can see Digital Deluxe Edition on Uplay for 60 EUR and on Steam I see Gold Edition that costs 80 $ (so cheaper then DDE on Uplay) but it shows more content then the Deluxe Edition... Please Ubisoft tell us if your Digital Deluxe Edition has EVERYTHING because it seems that it doesn't and if so, why NOT? I remember now how many problems I had with your season pass from AC3 and I want to buy the COMPLETE version of Black Flag, that has every single piece of content in game, even if it's just visual stuff... Please Ubisoft, don't make the same mistakes from last year. You make great games, but your community service is VERY VERY VERY bad. Is it that hard to just post here on forums which edition is missing what and what has everything...

Because in the Black Chest Edition you have more physical items. This is why it is so expensive. But yeah, it's... odd that there are so many differences. Until today it was may understanding that the Black Chest Edition has everything except those from the figurines. =/

I'm very disappointed about UBISOFT.. I asked UBISOFT support because there're many editions and hard to make a choice. But they answered unfriendly. They're crass.

What I said:


Hello, I'm a Korean user who just pre-ordered the AC4 Black Flag on Steam yesterday.

I bought an Assassin's Creed Black Flag Digital Deluxe Edition Pre-Order (ASIA) at $79.99 USD on this page.
- http://store.steampowered.com/app/242050/?l=english&cc=kr

After that, I just checked North America steam shop page at below page.
- http://store.steampowered.com/app/242050/?l=english&cc=us

But there was no Digital Deluxe Edition but a Gold Edition at same price as Digital Deluxe Edition.
And there are lots of differences between Deluxe edition and Gold edition even though they're same price.
Gold Edition included a season pass and many exclusive contents.

I think probably Deluxe Edition for North America version has upgraded to a Gold Edition. Am I right?

Anyway, I think it's unfair for Asian gamers because we purchase same price as a Gold Edition for a deluxe Edition.

Now I want to get all AC4BF exclusives, extra contents, bonus packs on Steam.
Should I refund my order and re-order through my American friend?
Or will my order be upgrade to a gold edition?
What should I do to get every contents for Black Flag on Steam?

Thank you for reading and answering. :)

P.S. I sent same same questions to Steam support already and waiting for an answer. So please don't tell me "ask Steam support". :)

But they replied:


William10/7/2013 4:23:49 PM
We have no influence over content available through steam, so unfortunately, the only option would be to wait for an answer from Steam Support.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Kind regards, William Uplay Shop Customer Service.


I replied:


I don't understand why did you say so.
I asked about differences between a Gold Edition and Deluxe Edition.
I asked about what would be best choice for perfect edition.
But you said "the only option would be wait for and answer from steam support."

THE GAME DEVELOPER IS UBISOFT and UBISOFT PUTS IT INTO STEAM.
UBISOFT DIVIDED IT INTO MANY INCOMPLETE EDITIONS.
I'm asking a question because of UBISOFT'S F****** OVERSEAS DISTRIBUTION POLICY WHICH IS A REGIONAL DISCRIMINATION.
Not steam, but UBISOFT. Am I wrong? Is there any reason to can't answer me?
YOU'RE SO SLOPPY AND MADE ME DISAPPOINTED AGAIN ABOUT UBISOFT. :(
STOP KIDDING CUSTOMERS AND MAKE A COMPLETE EDITION FOR EVERY USERS.
IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR UBISOFT. :(

what should I do? get refund and re-order a gold edition? or just buy a season for my deluxe edition?

10-08-2013, 12:56 PM
+1 to total confusion...

I'm also totally unsure where to buy my Digital Deluxe edition. All collector editions are clear for me, but these same but not same? Digital Deluxe editions are so confusing that I am delaying my decision.

Specially the recently Digital Deluxe edition from Stream. I don't understand it, according to their description, its contents are completely different from the Uplay or Gamestop Digital Deluxe edition?! :confused:

I can understand that some pre-order bonuses may vary from shop to shop but the contents of the version itself? It is so damn confusing...

For example according to gamestop, the Digital Deluxe Edition is exactly the same as the Uplay one except for the additional exclusive pre-order bonus "Trove of Mystery pack". This is more or less clear, but the Digital Deluxe version from steam has completely different content.

Steam reports to Ubisoft, Ubisoft reports to Steam and at the end no information is given from either sides...very frustrating

@Mr_Shade Thanks for checking the Steam situation, it would be great to know exact information about these editions

Also it would be good to know if it will be possible to USE the Gold edition code in europe. I have someone who could buy it for me in US.

10-09-2013, 10:46 AM
ok here is the bottom line:

Ubisoft messes up everytime with game's editions, anyone recalls what happened in AC3?! , two DDE versions, now its even a bigger mess with lots of editions and there is no edition to include all contents. i believe its the usual mistake by the people who make these editions (they should be fired by the way) and eventually i guess this will happen:

Gold edition will contain every content in the game + season pass which will cost 79$.
For people who bought EU DDE for 79$ on steam, it will be renamed to GOLD edition and include all contents same as U.S.
And last , the DDE will be similar to GOLD (maybe less content) and wont contain season pass and will be priced at 50$-59$

its similar to AC3 mess but without GOLD, they had DDE for 59$, then they decided to include season pass and raise the price for 79$, both versions are called DDE , but one with season pass and the other one without.

I bought AC4 Deluxe Edition, not Gold Edition on steam.

So, I also need an explanation about difference between Gold Edition and Deluxe Edition.
But point is that these editions are same price, $80. But Why does not Deluxe Edition include season pass and another reward?
Is it just description error on steam? are these two editions really different thing? or does UBI or retailer discriminate other region except NA?
Frankly speaking, I'm really upset and angry with this. I'm waiting UBI or Steam's response.

Mr_Shade mentioned a few pages back that he is checking this information. I'm also waiting for these infos to decide if I buy the Steam or the Uplay DDE because from the information provided on the product page on Steam, it is not clear (at least for me) if the versions itself (apart from the exclusive pre-order bonus) include exactly the same content.

Mr_Shade
10-09-2013, 05:16 PM
All listings on either Steam or Uplay - should be correct and current now, so you guys have to weigh up the price and content differences.

Thank you for at least this much info Shade. Although it is still strange that gold edition comes with season pass for 80$ and we from Europe need to pay for DDE and season pass almost 80 EURO which is more, and for the same content that Americans get in Gold edition.
So for conclusion if I buy DDE form Uplay and season pass will I get all the content available in game? What about those special relics that you get from buying statues? Will they ever be available to get without needing to buy statues?

Yes of course, Steam decided to bundle the "Gold Edition" for Americans with the Season Pass and to build a "Digital Deluxe Edition" for the European market. Ubisoft has nothing to do with this mess. Your customers are not this stupid.

This was a mess with AC3 too, but was fixed with the Digital Deluxe Edition, witch included all all available game content. I was stupid enogh to think, that Ubisoft would learn from this mess. No, they decided not to release a complete version after all for the European market. Fine, this will be the first Assassins Creed since Brotherhood which i will not preorder. I will wait for a 50% off Sale this time...

In sweden, where I live, the only editions available are the regular and the skull edition. The skull edition doesn't contain all singleplayer missions, such as Avelines missions and some "island" missions. The rest of the "island" missions as well as Avelines missions are included in the Digital Deluxe Edition on Steam and as far as I can see, Steam is the only place that has ALL single player content, minus the season pass. But the Steam Digital Deluxe doesn't contain the artbook, which I am very interested in.

So, I still want the Skull edition, but how do I get my hands on the rest of the content? Avelines content isn't anywhere in any shop neither are the extra "island" missions.

The description of the Season Pass says "The Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag downloadable content features additional single player missions, including ‘Freedom Cry’...". It says additional single player INCLUDING freedom cry, which I take will contain OTHER single player missions also. But which ones? Avelines? More "islands"?

You wont hear official answer anytime soon
But probably (almost certainly) they will have all current extras included in one of the DLCs they put in Season Pass. All but PS exclusive.

Mr_Shade... you list that the Black Chest will contain,
- "All existing additional Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Unlockable In-Game Content, including single player missions, skins and weapons"...Does this mean that the Black Chest for PC will include the Aveline DLC as the Digital Deluxe/Gold version for PC has it?... It would just be incredibly unfair if the Black Chest for PC which is meant to be the Premier version would not include it and yet a lower version does...

Giving the fact that the Benedict Arnold DLC was never re-released for stand-alone purchase or included in any other edition than the Digital Deluxe Edition I think it's highly unlikely that the Aveline DLC will be included in the Black Flag Edition.
There is also a difference in Ubisofts wording here: Unlockable In-Game Content (or ULC) means that all this stuff already exists in everyone game, even the normal standard editions. It's just not unlocked so these special editions will provide codes to do that for certain parts (or all of them in the case of the Black Chest Edition).
The Aveline memories are actual DLC that probably have to be installed separately, like it was done with the Copernicus Conspiracy (on the PS3) and the Benedict Arnold DLC (PS3/PC) before.

Dude the brazillian ppl can get the gold edition for 70$ and americans can get it 80$ but some geniuses in ubisoft is expecting 80$ + 20€ for the same content even in digital edition

i dont saying the black chest edition not shipping to Turkey? Why cant i get the Black Chest? Am i not a huge fan? Am i poor? Or just becoz i am TURK?
I am taking it as a little bit racist man
I already pre ordered the Buccaneer Edition from my country but this has a lot of missing content why will i need to play it with missing content? why i cant get the better figurine? why i cant get steelbook? am i need to order skull edition too? How many times to need order this game to get full content
back in 2012's this times i ordered the freedom edition than order deluxe from steam and all is well but now i cant get the full collection in one piece i need to buy from 5-6 different stores to get the full game
i can understand the NA's limited edition and only europe black chest

If the edition is no longer listed - it's likely to have sold out.


The only people able to answer questions about stock levels in your region - are store support.

I will however see if I can find anything out, however the store team are the correct people to talk too - and if you are not in the UK, fair easier for you to speak to directly, since I only have real access to the UK guys.

You can also call - however charges may apply: http://www.ubi.com/US/Support/InternationalSupport.aspx

http://shrani.si/t/2H/nL/4P9WV8ou/ac4.jpg (http://shrani.si/f/2H/nL/4P9WV8ou/ac4.jpg)

Seems that Gold Edition will have more content:

Season Pass with Adewale missions (not to be mistaken with Aveline)
Resources Pack
Collectibles Pack



1. Does DELUXE Edition contain "Collectibles Pack" and "Resources Pack", or they are included only in GOLD Edition? Are they included in Season Pass?
2. Is "The Castaway's Prize" (description: "German Rapiers The Discoverer picture, title, relix and emblem") the same as "Pirates Bounty Pack" (description: "German Rapiers & Compass Relic")?
3. Does GOLD Edition contain all bonuses of "The Castaway's Prize"?
4. Does purchasing of GOLD Edition gives the same set of bonuses as purchasing DELUXE Edition + Season Pass?

Perhaps it is time for UBISOFT to understand that they start becoming really annoying even a total "piss off" & "turn off" with all those different editions for just a game.

1/ Why you don't have just one W.W. Limited edition for all media available including next gen consoles in order to make everybody happy? - I mean since AC2 it had been the same frustration for the different editions from one continent to another, with as always & surely some countries in the middle that get screwed to the bones.

2/ Also & honestly, how many ULCs are around for that game, seriously and please tell us why the fans of this franchise have to pay extra stuff in extra merchandizing for unlocking something that is already in the disk and we paid for?

Are we playing some Assassin's creed's game there or it is Ubisoft is playing a Assassin's Greed's game to his supporters?

Besides most of the times your pre-order or promo codes don't work - Personally, after reading "the watch threat" on that forum a few days ago, I tried to go on the Watch after my pre-order from Gamestop, I never got any code from them for the Watch, Gamestop told me they never heard about it, so I pre-ordered it but I won't have the "honor" to be part of it...lol -
For AC3 I had the same problem with Gamestop pre-order exclusivity...In short, I had to re-buy later the exclusivity via the later available DLC.
My kids told me that The McFarlane codes for AC/initiate don't work - The exclusives for ACInitiate are coming soon, but most we have finished the game. AC initiate does not synchronized correctly with Uplay... - I mean seriously?

Why are you doing that to the fans of this series and your supporters?

They really don't listen to customers and Support is doing nothing to help us. They need to release a DLC with all ULCs from all editions (Black Chest, Deluxe, Gold...) like they did with AC 3 and Revelations. We should make a petition or something.

Is it just me or did all Special Edition games get upgraded to Deluxe Edition?

What do you mean?

Well, I bought the Special Edition, and when I plugged in the activation key it gave me the Deluxe Edition. Same thing happened to a friend of mine.

LOL, that's cool! I don't know, I haven't got the game yet. But you're lucky.

Yeah same with me, I got the game code from the Nvidia bundle and on the store it said "special edition" and in the uplay client it says deluxe edition, Hopefully it is the deluxe edition with the extra weapons etc... :)

Oh and I signed the petition as well :)

Hi there,

so I was somehow cheated from an ONLINE SHOP ...

they offered, when you buy the normal game at a Special date, that they upgrade to the UPLAY Deluxe Version ...
ha what joke, of course today they said, they haven't got any keys for the Deluxe Edition ,,,

and they would send all, who have ordered it, the DAY ONE AC IV Version ... which has some ideotic ingame items BUT NONE of that 3 SP MISSIONS ,,,

SO now I have 4 ideotic ingame sets ... I really don't care BUT NONE OF THAT SP MISSIONS !

Is there a way I could BUY THEM ANYWHERE ?

I am searching for ...

3 ADDITIONAL SOLO MISSIONS FOR AN EXTRA 45 MINUTES OF GAMEPLAY ·
· Black Island:
· Hidden Mystery:
· Sacrificed Secrets:

Any idea ?
Are they included with the season pass ?

Still downloading that game with UPLAY, even I have 50Mbit line, it is terrible slow from the UBISoft Servers !

Guys, everything will be made available through the Season Pass. The ONLY thing is not going to be given is the Aveline missions, and most probably, the items given by the figures' codes, but I am not sure about it. Besides that, you will get EVERYTHING else. Maybe you won't get some pre-order relic from the Multiplayer, at least I think so, but when we are talking about the Singe Player, everything, besides true exclusive items/missions (The ones I mentioned before), will be made available. You can get the Aveline DLC only through buying the Deluxe Edition. Also, the Gold Edition is technically the Deluxe Edition PLUS the Season Pass. So one can get the Deluxe Edition with 60 Euros and buy the Season Pass with 20 Euros and get everything except the items from the figures, or so I think of since I don't know if they will also become available. Buying the Gold Edition costs 80 Euros since it is both the Deluxe and the Season Pass. If Steam gives you something less, it is actually Steam's fault. I know praising Lord Gaben is the most holy act of our days, but there is no way a God and their doings are perfect, that is a fact. Additionally, Steam may give the Soundtrack of the game in the future too, like what is has done with Brotherhood and III, but only to the Deluxe Edition.

Lastly, I want to say only one thing, I wish I could get the Aveline DLC, somehow... And that's the problem with the Deluxe Editions on Steam. If you see, ACII's Deluxe Edition has nothing but all the extra DLCs, and it allows you to upgrade a Standard Edition to Deluxe Edition. BUT, Brotherhood, that not only has all the DLCs, but also the Soundtrack and some extra PDFs, and III, that not only has all the DLCs, which include the Benedict Arnold DLC, but also the Soundtrack and one PDF, cannot be upgraded to Deluxe Edition, same as IV... Of course, I pre-ordered the Skull Edition, so I do not have it on Steam, but UPlay doesn't give that option either... And I just recentrly wanted to buy AC:Brotherhood on Steam, but I could not get the Deluxe Edition, so I am not buying it because I will not be able to upgrade it... Even though it has nothing exclusive... Besides the Soundtrack.
