I'm currently downloading AC4BF on my UPLAY client now. It's got approx. 4 hours until it's finished. No big deal. I purchased the Gold Edition so I also have access to:



Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Crusader & Florentine Pack

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Time Saver: Resources Pack
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Death Vessel Pack
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Kraken Ship Pack
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Season Pass


I am wondering however what these 3 additional DLCs are:



Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Time Saver: Collectibles Pack

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Activities Pack
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Technology Pack



When I click on the Buy Now button no additional information appears to explain what this content is.

So my questions are:



What is this additional content?
Is this content that will be released via the Season Pass?
Did you seriously release MORE additional content to purchase on day 1 release?
If so, why wasn't this content included in the Gold Edition?

The answer to this is if you search these things up you'll find out they are what us Gold Users should of got from pre-ordering. It use to be the other pre-order bonuses but got taken out for some reason and now we will have to pay an extra $0.99 for each pack if we want it

Those "DLC" are already in Uplay shop. Why dont you have a look?
Map reveal (collectibles and activites) packs are completely useless/unnecessary btw. You can reveal everything just by synchronising nearby viewpoint (for cities and big islands) or capturing fort (for sea and small uncharted islands). And unlike AC3 you can reveal 100% of the map just by doing this. I think you would do this anyway if your goal is to collect everything.

They arent additional content. Just a sort of official cheat. Useless for the most part. Having them can actually lower your game experience thats probably why they are not included in any edition. And ofc ubisoft's greed.

I see that the Collectibles Pack and the Activities Pack are/were exclusives to the PlayStation.

Are these items available for purchase on the UPLAY PC Client now?

I can click the Buy Now button but that just changes the page to the UPLAY shop and no details come up and nothing appears in my 'cart' for purchase. Using the search bar for any of these items yields no results. If I search for product name and DLCs for Assassin's Creed, none of these items appear for purchase.
