Thanks for the headsup Shade, unfortunately, I think i'll have to pass on the Black Chest Edition, a triple digit price tag is a bit out of my budget, plus, im running out of space to store collectables and such :P

I may order it then next week for PS4 (I hope there are still enough in the UK)! And then I shall have both Buccaneer and Black Chest. :D
Now add to the list at least 3 McFarlane Kenway figures, the "Assassin Pirate" statue of Edward and the 2 Play Arts Kai figures of Connor and Edward: https://store.eu.square-enix.com/emea_uk/merchandise/ASSASSIN-S-CREED-III-PLAY-ARTS-KAI-Connor.php and https://store.eu.square-enix.com/emea_uk/merchandise/ASSASSIN-S-CREED-IV-BLACK-FLAG-PLAY-ARTS-KAI-Edward-Kenway.php

The Play Arts Kai figures....ugh.....I've never seen such horrible Quality Control issues until i got the Ezio figure they released. The entire line has joint problems (mine has a hip joint that's so loose, it can't stand on it's own without support, and posing the thing is impossible for that very same reason), and there's no way to fix it without dismantling (destroying) the figure.

If i were you Silver, I'd skip on those square Enix figures and save 150 or so.

At the time I was wondering why more people werent in the thread regularly. You should have been there, loads of info was dumped into that thread. I think its the only thread that never really went off topic haha.

If you really want one, stores will have a few to sell. But you will have to get up really early most likely and be first in line. They will probs have 10 allocated to just stores. I would ring GAME up or something and ask if they will have any instore.

Does anybody who ordered black flag black chest edition know how the preordering works ? Do they take the money out of your bank account straightway or do they charge when item gets dispatched? Need to know as my mum is preordering it for me and I will be paying her back. Would like to know asap as I would like to preorder it as soon as I can :) thanks to anyone who can answer this question for me, it would be greatly appreciated :)

WAT. You paid for the PS4 one already right? Cause they take payment straight away?

Either way, I still cant believe you missed out on a PS4. Felix Vivo did the same thing. Was talking to her on facebook last week and she was like "Im gonna pre order soon :)" And I was like.. O sheets....

I paid using PayPal so the receipt I got gave me the full price: 119.99 GBP. Don't know if they charged me or not yet. Maybe it's different with PayPal?? I dunno...

I wasn't thinking of pre-ordering the PS4 so I suppose it's okay... (Not after all the AC merch I have and still planning to get! lol) I'll get it around Christmas I hope! ^^

Think of paypal as a door to your credit/debit card. If you pay by paypal, you are in fact paying.

So yes you just paid 120 *epic facepalm*

It doesnt matter. I will try and explain paypal for you.

1. Its a doorway ( I said this before but hear me out)

It just makes your details safe. Instead of putting in your details on a website you just use your paypal login, no credit numbers are exchanged. It still charges your card straight away though like normal.

It might not be a bad thing. If you are familiar with eBay you can sell that to some American for quiet a lot more than you bought it for.

Or you can just cancel it :P

I'm getting mixed messages, I contacted uplay support and they said that they would hold the money for up to 5 day then put it back into your account, and then it would take out the payment properly when the item is dispatched, I'm going to be paying by direct debit btw, but people on here are saying they take the payment straight away, which goes against their terms and conditions as it says on the help page that it takes the money out when the item is dispatched? Can anyone please enlighten me ? Thank you

When I bought Freedom last year from UPlay, I was charged straight away.

09-09-2013, 11:09 PM
How did you pay for the the freedom edition as I was told that when paying with Paypal or clickandbuy that it comes out straightway

Mr_Shade
09-24-2013, 11:00 AM
indeed - if you pay with paypal - it's an instant payment since paypal can't charge the fee at a much later date - since it would require you to re-autohrise it.

If you pay with a card directly, they should take the money when they send the item or just before.


Be aware - they may charge your card a week or so before release, due to readying the item for postage and the time it takes to deliver needed.

Someone in Ireland said that it wasn't available on the UbiShop a few days ago, so I am guessing all UK stock is gone.

Not sure.
I got a preorderpack from Uplay but as the Black Chest edition is supposed to have all preorder items, I'd guess that you'll miss nothing.
I doubt the restock, though, as this version is limited. So the stock is exactly known and if it's sold out than the complete stock was ordered.
There might be a small chance that canceled orders come back but you never know. =/

The german version was indeed sold out for a while and came back for a few days. It's sold out again. I guess those might've been some canceled orders as it was pretty fast sold out again.

I'm so sorry to bother you guys with more questions. I am very grateful for your help so far. So is there any point in pre ordering the Black Chest Edition? If its out of stock then does this mean it can't be released since it's only available on Uplay. Will I have to wait a very long time to order it from Uplay? Or is pre order stock different to the actual stock that will be released?

What they mean by "out of stock" is only, that all available stock was preordered. Not that there are no more physical items they could ship. So they will be able to ship the versions when Black Flag is released to everyone that preordered...
Also, this version is limited and, as far as I understood, all versions they make are preorderable. So if it's sold out than it is sold out and you can no longer order it, there is no additional stock for the releaseday. This is why Mr_Shade made this thread, to inform you "If you really want this version hurry, because it starts to sell out".

So the benefit in preordering is simply, that you can be sure to get your version. I am also not sure if non-preorderers will get access to The Watch, though. But this is no ingame-content. ^^

RedHood4
09-29-2013, 01:41 PM
What I'm really trying to figure out is if I should wait for the release of the Black Chest Edition or if I should go ahead and preorder the Buccaneer Edition. If Black Chest is sold out then is that that? Will I never be able to get it, even after its released? It will be released to the people that preordered it and then then it's gone for good?

Mr_Shade
09-29-2013, 07:14 PM
Once stock is sold out - I can't say if it will ever be restocked - they do not always make more of the limited editions due to the cost of producing them.


So, the advice to be safe, if you think you want it - order as soon as possible.
