Will there be pre-order bonuses available for those who choose to purchase AC4BF digitally?

Bump.

The reason I ask is because I would prefer to pre-order online and download the game digitally and not be penalized for choosing this method over physical discs.

Depends on the retailer. Some offer the same bonuses as physical stores, others offer no bonuses at all. Steam didn't offer any bonuses for AC3, if I recall, but I didn't buy it until December. Stores like EA's Origin typically offers the same bonus for both physical and digital copies. It just depends on the retailer ultimately. Just shop around and keep an eye out. Chances are if the site doesn't list the pre-order bonus, they aren't going to give out one. If you really want the bonus and know for sure it comes with a hard copy, then it may be best to get the hard copy.

Your best bet is to also check this site for Pre-Ordering as it usually lists the different Versions, Bonuses, and Official Retailers. ;)

This is precisely what has me concerned. I see no mention of PSN/XBox Live.

I'll see if I can find out anything for you but I can't make you any promises. ;)

This time we are getting unique ships, missions and historical figures as costumes. Was any of the AC3 study released as DLC later on? I hope they would do it for AC4 just for the historical costumes at the very least.
