Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

Introducing Assassin’s Creed® Unity, the next-gen evolution of the blockbuster franchise powered by the all new Anvil engine. From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution as never before – and help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.

Yeah! I was looking for the Bastille Edition as well... That's the one I would love to have.

The one for NA isn't bad but it's just meh. I'm tired of getting crappy editions here. :\ I think I might really consider importing this one. Ohh! how fun it will be my first game from Europe about Europe! :D


Also question, the Edition with the pocket watch... is that a real working watch? or just a die cut of one made of hard plastic?

That looks like an Amazon DE bundle? - and is not available via Ubisoft /Uplay Shop - so it's a retailer specific one, so you would have to ask them directly, since I don't have any information on it - however I have asked.

I just realized something...

Mr Shade, is it correct, that the Guillotine Edition itself does not contain ANY In-Game-Packs (Shooter, Musketeer...)? You just get the packs you get via preorder?
Just asking because that would mean, if you buy the physical (with a disc) Guillotine Edition you miss the Royal Arseneal pack and if you buy the digital Guillotine Edition you miss four of five packs? o.o

Lol, their support (the german one) doesn't know it at the moment - they try to get the information though.

I couldn't see anything about if the diffrent editions will be exclusive for diffrent stores, like they have been before with exclusive editions for Gamestop and last time with the Uplay exclusive Black Flag edition. So I'm guessing I will be able to pick up the Guillotine Edition from pretty much any store?

Tell me about it. Every year this happens. I wrote Ubisoft about it but I doubt I'll get a response. I'm not even asking for them to release it here, the least they could let us do is order the Guillotine Edition from the Uplay shop. I'd pay for the shipping.

I think FuturePak might be the company that makes the steel case. But yeah, they could've just simplified the name to steel case.

off topic: anyone know the weigh and dimensions of last year's Jackdaw Edition? I'm having the Guillotine Edition shipped from overseas to the US and I just need a rough estimate of the weight and dimensions to calculate a shipping price.

I think FuturePak might be the company that makes the steel case. But yeah, they could've just simplified the name to steel case.

It's actually not quite the same. SteelBook is the trademarked name of a particular type of steel case (previous AC cases, Call of Duty, Thief, Beyond Two Souls, etc.) - this is the case that has a separate long rectangular piece of material in the spine that connects that front and back halves and is where the title is typically placed. IronPak is a similar type of construction. A FuturePak (or MetalPak) doesn't have that separate piece of material - there's a hinge that goes straight down the middle of the spine. The Batman Arkham Origins pre-order case was this type (at least in the US), as was the 'collectible tin' case in the Mass Effect 3 collector's edition. SteelBook is generally better manufactured than FuturePak/MetalPak as well. Personally I can't stand MetalPaks - I hate that hinge straight down the spine.

Hmm from what I've seen the Marketing of the Collectors editions are very much the same style and formula as Black Flag ! Steel Book version and Guilluitine version which was exactly the same as the black chest edition .

except the version that NA is getting. We get Arno on a gargoyle statue, which i might add is still cool. But Arno standing at the guillotine leading the Revolution with a bucket that holds someone's head. That is freaking cool. Not to mention all the extra stuff the Guillotine Edition gets that the ONE limited edition the NA gets doesn't have. We just get the art book and music box. No lithographs, no canvas painting, no special frame, no map, no steelbook case or FuturePak case. Hell, we don't even get the same Notre Dame box where it flips open to display the Arno figurine. Its the same graphic but just a regular slide out box.

Once again, North American fans don't get a chance to buy the best, unless they spend an inordinate amount of money through eBay. I don't understand, and maybe someone from Ubi can explain to us why they do this. Especially with the fact that the newest consoles are region free!

Do they not think the North American audiences would purchase these editions? I think they are sadly mistaken. Instead of giving Ubisoft my money, I end up having to give money to a third party. Ubisoft, don't you want my money?

There are always calls for Ubisoft to explain, but there is never an explanation. We scream and scream and scream while they hold their fingers in their ears yelling, "LA LA LA LA LA LA...WE CAN'T HEAR YOU!"

They know that we would buy those editions, but for some reason, they don't seem to care. Even if you give your money to someone else, Ubisoft is still getting your money since it has to be purchased from them, but that someone else is profiting off of you through a sometimes hefty markup.

Unfortunately I have come to accept the fact that I will always have to purchase my Ubi games through eBay because they refuse to make any of the Ubishop CE's available to their North American audience. After our fights with Ubi to make CE's universal over the past four years, I actually thought Ubi would've changed, but I guess not.

I doubt it. On retailers such as Gamestop, Walmart, etc. already have the "Limited Edition" set up for preorder. We only get 1 edition so its always dubbed "Limited Edition" and its usually the final one if they already show it on retailers. And btw, they didn't give us a steelbook for the Limited Edition AC3. I ended up buying a brand new one on ebay for $8, and yes it is a very nice addition and I do collect it too myself so seeing the NA version of Unity not getting it is just one of the many things that piss me off about what Ubisoft is giving us. In order for me to get the Guillotine from overseas, it would cost me a minimum of $300 after all import fees and shipping fees from 3rd party. Thats more than enough to get me 2 NA versions. :mad:

In the Guillotine Edition description it said that it was for the "ultimate Assassins Creed fan," so apparently Ubi doesn't consider any of us fans in the NA territory ultimate AC fans. At least our CE is comparable to the Notre Dame Edition, though it would've been cool to of had that box that it comes in. In my opinion, the music box looks better than the two lithographs.

Perhaps we could also define the "ultimate Assassin's Creed fan" as someone who will stop at anything to obtain their goal. Despite the odds, we persevere and claim what's ours.

Its not so much of the insult of NA not being ultimate AC fans. its just the principal of every year, giving us a crappier version than the rest of the world, and for us "true ultimate ac fans", we have to go out of our way (which i wouldn't mind) but to spend more than double of what europe is spending. Uhhh no thanks.. For most of us wanting to get the Guillotine version, it would cost us the same amount as our next gen console!

So? Ebay can do pre orders too... I've done it loads of times with games.

Preorders on eBay are not supposed to extend out past 30 days.

I have pre-ordered items before on eBay and what I have typically seen from sellers is that they will list the product shipping immediately, even though that will not be the case for a pre-order. So, definitely do some research and email the seller directly for clarification before paying up front for an item you won't receive for several months.

Pre orders are allowed on eBay, and although they only allow a certain amount of time that the pre order is suppose to be, people still sell it months in advance because to sellers, it's the best time to cash out. Buyers might get worried the editions would sell out either through the manufacture or the eBay seller or they won't find it for a better price.

There are 3rd party shipping companies that ship overseas for you, but they charge a hefty fee per weight increments and on top of that, they take a fee from you for doing the seed. I calculated at 2 different companies and it is looking like it would be about $320 after all shipping fees and import tax fees.

I just realized something...

Mr Shade, is it correct, that the Guillotine Edition itself does not contain ANY In-Game-Packs (Shooter, Musketeer...)? You just get the packs you get via preorder?
Just asking because that would mean, if you buy the physical (with a disc) Guillotine Edition you miss the Royal Arseneal pack and if you buy the digital Guillotine Edition you miss four of five packs? o.o



I'm wondering this too, surely it can't be possible that the biggest edition doesn't come with all the content. From what I can tell you'd miss the Royal Arsenal pack. Also a little bummed it doesn't come with the pocket watch.

It looks like the mission that is part of the NA Collector's Edition is the one we Europeans get from entering all four codes on the 'Unite' preorder program. So like Dag_B said, they switched Promo and Special Edition contents here.

But what I'm really curious about is how do I get this pretty thing as a European since it's a Walmart exclusive? :(

Personally, I'd much prefer the Guillotine Edition if it also has the Unity pocket watch inside, since pre-order packs come later and I'd most likely buy the season pass for later content.

The exclusion of the pocket watch is the only reason I have not pre-ordered it now, as I do not see the point in buying the game from two different suppliers for one measly physical piece and then being forced to sell the game on to get some money back.

Edit: Nevermind, I caved in. I suppose it'd give me something to trade in at GAME or where I work.

'

Edit2: Oh, and by the way, I just pre-ordered it and it has taken a chunk out of my available balance immediately. I thought I was supposed to be billed in October, but now funds have been held aside from me. Why is that, if Amazon can take my pre-order and not lock money away from me? This makes this aspect of the order information misleading.

You should be able to equip rifles since there's a unique pre-order rifle, what would be the point of a pre-order rifle if you couldn't carry it indefinitely

Have you tried your country's Uplay store? over here in the UK there's a Uplay exclusive pre-order offer which gives the Chemical Revolution Mission, Prussion Pack, Musketeer Pack, Shooter Pack and Parade Pistol

So, I rather buy a (more conventional) limited edition with all the extra missions and items and leave aside these collector editions.

I know. Brotherhood's Da Vinci and the Assassin's 3' Washington editions, didn't have all the exclusive items/missions, though, I had to get all the remaining content via PSStore. When I bought Revelations, there wasn't any limited edition available at the store, so I bought a conventional version and bought everything else from the PSStore. And the same with Black Flag, and way back with Assassin's 2.

Bottom line is, it's always cool to get a limited edition, maybe not one of those extremely expensive one's, but one that includes most of the relevant extra content. The rest, you can get through the Store.


NOTE: It would be really cool to get my hands on the edition that has the pocket-watch. :cool:

All pre-order packs are always part of a future DLC. ACII's were included in Bonfire of the Vanities, ACB's in DaVinci Disappearance, ACR's in The Lost Archive, AC3's in Hidden Secrets Pack, AC4's in Illustrous Pirates Pack. So the game compilations that contain all DLCs (like Washington Edition and the likes) would have all pre-order packs as well.

What worries me are the promotional extras and those that have codes with other products, those are all over the place in case of ACIV and are not included anywhere else.

Yeah, I know. Personally, I always wanted to get one of these special limited editions, with loads of off-game content, like the art books, cards, etc. Unfortunately, the prices are absolutely prohibitive here in Portugal, and I never did find one available at a store.

What other extras and other products do you mean?

Farlander1991
07-23-2014, 11:19 AM
What other extras and other products do you mean?

In AC4, for example, there are a number of weapons/outfits/ship customizations not available without buying a separate product.

For example, the Haytham color outfit for Edward is available only via Haytham MacFarlane figure or UbiWorkshop Edward Kenway figurine which contains the code to unlock the outfit. There are some others.

There's also promotional weapons, like a code going with Dr Pepper to get Double Meat Cleaver, or smth.

Supposedly, some regions of Black Chest Edition (not all of them), have access to ALL said content that was distributed promotionally in other products, but I know of people who don't have those in their Black Chest Edition (and those who did have them listed in their booklets had to go through customer support to actually get those items because they weren't available from the beginning).

Because they have Spin to Win :p

Seriously though, I've no idea, that's up to mystic logic of the marketing guys...

Nuts, absolutely nuts. Sounds like they need new blood in Marketing and/or somewhere else, or is it back to this USA v Canada thing. On the face of it, it just comes across as if Ubisoft are saying something about their US customers. I know anything I say won't make a difference, but I do feel all fans should have access to all things AC related.

All pre-order packs are always part of a future DLC. ACII's were included in Bonfire of the Vanities, ACB's in DaVinci Disappearance, ACR's in The Lost Archive, AC3's in Hidden Secrets Pack, AC4's in Illustrous Pirates Pack. So the game compilations that contain all DLCs (like Washington Edition and the likes) would have all pre-order packs as well.

What worries me are the promotional extras and those that have codes with other products, those are all over the place in case of ACIV and are not included anywhere else.
I fear it might be the same. I guess the reason why they give out the preorder packs later is that there is no longer a way to obtain them. You can't preorder anymore, when the games are out. But yeah... The figurines you can still buy to get the code. So there is no need to provide an additional way to get those items.

For now. Figurines aren't going to be released forever, and people who want them don't necessarily have the means to get them (depending on where they live).

Normally Americans are the one with all the better special editions. Maybe it's because ubisoft is a french company. As a european myself, i'm very happy with ubisoft!!

Ubisoft just needs to get their stuff together when it comes collector's editions. If Game has an edition with twelve things in the damn thing Ubisoft needs to acknowledge not everyone orders from there or can, so make sure the others are equal. There should be three editions total. This is just about selfishness and money. What upsets me the most is the best edition is on their OWN store and anyone not in EMEA is screwed. Why not make that edition available to all? Sorry for the rant but after comic-con I am tired of being silent and hoping.

I'm still curious about the not yet officially announced 'Initiates Edition'. I read somewhere that it's going to be a Special Edition of the Unity strategy guide. Someone with more info here?

edit: Agree with everything BSAA_R said. Although I'm on the lucky side this time, all those Special Editions and promotion items are just confusing. And Unity is just the tip of the iceberg. You can get things here and there, some things only in the US some only in Europe. What's most interesting is that some items/unlockables you only get by buying specific shavers and drinks (see ACIV) which is pretty ridicuolous... this whole system is a mess. Everyone in the world should have the same chances to get all the content of the game, or at least the same content.

And official statement time - even though I asked Pacmanate nicely not to post - since things maybe confused…


This thread is for all of the officially announced Ubishop versions - ones stocked by the official store.


There are many retailers around the world, Amazon included, who like to put together special editions of their own - these are sanctioned by Ubisoft, however we do not control the contents of them, so any questions relating to editions not from Ubisoft direct - need to be asked of the retailer.

We don't list these editions, since it would confuse matters even more, than some find already ;)


If you are interested in what editions other retailers have - which a few maybe the same as the ones sold on Ubishop - you can either check with them directly - or - check on the official AC website :)


For example - here http://assassinscreed.ubi.com/en-GB/purchase/assassins-creed-unity.aspx



But like I say - you can sometimes find 'editions' not listed here, which can include a few extra content codes etc however they will be store / retailer exclusive so you need to contact them directly - since as you can expect, there maybe a lot of them ;)



TLDR: This thread is for the main editions of the game available at Ubishop - other retailers may have similar editions - so please check locally ;)

This is probably the incorrect place, but anyone know what the difference in the different listings for the Unity Abstergo Employee Handbook are?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Assassins-Creed-Unity-Abstergo-Industries/dp/1608874036/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1407311842&sr=1-2 and http://www.amazon.co.uk/Assassins-Creed-Unity-Abstergo-Entertainment/dp/1783295473/ref=sr_1_16?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1407311842&sr=1-16

They both sound the same but have slight difference in cover art, different publisher and release dates.

They both sound the same but have slight difference in cover art, different publisher and release dates.

They might coincide with Unity and Rogue release dates. And it makes sense that an Abstergo Industries employee would receive a different handbook compared to the ones given at Entertainment. I bet the Industries book will skip the platitudes and go straight to the veiled threats if the employee violate their policies. Whereas the Entertainment book might have a more colourful layout, an upbeat tone and finally their "severance package" should they fail to follow the rules.

So I just saw the Guillotine edition and looked around online to see if I could order it, but as I live in Canada, I am unfortunately stuck with just the collector's edition. It's a shame as the Guillotine is the best edition and I am fully willing to pay for it, as I'm sure many would be if it were available here.

I'm curious if anyone (maybe someone who works for Ubi) knows why this always happens.Europe gets the best collector's editions of AC games while in North America, which has the largest consumer base, doesn't and is stuck with a watered down version of the European ones, but at similar prices. I just want all the collectibles why is that so wrong?

Yeah. I hate all the exclusives be they store exclusive / console exclusive / region exclusive.
You could always try ebay? Or if you have a really trustworthy friend in the EU you could get them to send it over (but shipping would probably be expensive).

Alternatively: save up and take an Assassin's Creed holiday, tour Rome stopping off at all the AC hotspots, taking pictures of yourself climbing all over Rome, pick up a collector's pack before doing a quick whirlwind tour through the Caribbean and Boston etc, to cover 3 and 4, and then back home to unbox and play.

Probably more expensive than just shipping, but imagine the memories.

Plan on doing something similar next year actually. This has been asked since 2009 and never have we received an solid answer about Ubisoft not doing the ultimate for NA. Maybe we are to dig and find out for ourselves, but what if that information is not 100% true... Then it gets spread from opinion to fact. Help us understand Ubisoft.

Unfortunately, you can only order it directly via Uplay shop in EMEA region (or just Europe, I'm not sure).

But there are some places which offer the figurine in the US, or you can try your luck on places like ebay. Just go back some pages in this thread, there are some shops mentioned for US customers. :)

It's not going to be released in the US, although I think some small/specialty retailers might import some. You're not going to find it on Amazon.com or Walmart or the like. There are several overseas retailers that you can import it from though. I've imported previous figurines in the series from Game.co.uk and from Amazon.co.uk. The Arno figurine is currently available for pre-order with shipping to the US on both sites (the Amazon.uk.co addy is http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00I9WWBEO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE). I usually opt for Amazon.co.uk if possible, because they automatically remove VAT if you're located out of the EU, while Game.co.uk does not.

In the Guillotine Edition description it said that it was for the "ultimate Assassins Creed fan," so apparently Ubi doesn't consider any of us fans in the NA territory ultimate AC fans. At least our CE is comparable to the Notre Dame Edition, though it would've been cool to of had that box that it comes in. In my opinion, the music box looks better than the two lithographs.

Nothing exciting about the NA edition. but it's not bad. I have opted to buy both Rogue for the 360 and Unity for the Xbox 1. and This year, I am getting the Dragon age Inquisition- Inquisitors edition. but IMHO the CE is not bad. it's just I am buying two AC games. and I am really looking forward to DA Inquisition, and the Inquisitors edition, is off the charts kick A. in my subjective opinion. But I am sure next year, I'll be purchasing whatever CE they offer for the next AC installment. and if it is as good as this years and Black Flags? I will certainly buy it. Maybe not as good as other editions offered. but better than most CE's IMHO

I didn't bother ordering the NA CE. There's only 1 extra mission (the Chemical Revolution mission comes with any pre-order), and pre-order missions are typically included in the season pass content anyway. I prefer the Guillotine statue, but since that's not an option I'm importing Arno: The Fearless Assassin statue instead. There's no steelbook, and I'm not interested in the music box (which is smaller than I thought it was); the watch in the Amazon.de bundle would have been more interesting to me. I prefer full size art books, and there will likely be one released for Unity since both ACIII and ACIV got one so I'll just pick that up. The soundtrack is nice, but not a must have for me. If I can find the CE on clearance in a couple months like I did with ACIV I'll probably pick it up then, but I'm not interested in that content at $130. I wish they'd included something akin to George Washington's journal (although NA had to fight for that) or Altair's Codex (which I did get off eBay) - I find those kind of CE items way more interesting than a tiny music box that apparently doesn't play by itself or a tiny art book.

Lonnie_Jackson

Don't see the point in getting the Guillotine edition; the Notre Dame edition has everything I want in it. Ubi also release the biggest statues seperately, so I could get it later if I want, but won't release the Notre Dame statue by itself. I still probably won't buy that either. I care more about the DLC & the Notre Dame edition has everything except a downloadable pistol.

It's not that I can't afford it, because I could if I canceled one of pre-orders, I just don't see why I should spend £40 more for a less appealing figurine (to me), a map, a music box, a steal case, some cards & a downloadable pistol. I'm spending £180 to get the Rogue CE, Unity Notre Dame edition & the special edition of a game called Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, & if I had more money I would probably buy the Elise figurine. I did that last year. I bought the Bucaneer edition & the figurine of Edward instead of The Black Chest edition.

What's the appeal to you guys?

And that box is huge, not sure what I'm going to do with it (the black chest from last year was huge too, I'm currently using it as a night stand :rolleyes: )

I prefer the statue in the guilotine case. There also is a lot more exclusive in-game content. Plus all the extra stuff.

"The exclusive and prestigious Assassin’s Creed Unity Guillotine Collector’s Case is the definitive collection of Assassin’s treasures for the ultimate Assassin’s Creed fan.

This collector box contains an amazing figurine of Arno standing on a guillotine rallying the revolutionaries, an artbook, 2 lithographs, the game official soundtrack, an exclusive FuturePak™, a secret map of Paris based on the in-game version, a fully customized Tarot card game, a framed canvas print inspired from the painting of that era and a wooden music box playing a dear theme to every fan of the Assassin’s Creed saga.

You will also get access to 2 single player missions for an extra 45 minutes of gameplay as well as single player items including multiple extra outfits and weapons!Pre-order now on Uplay shop and get the ultimate pre-order offer: 1 Mission (The Chemical Revolution - 30 min), The Prussian Pack, the Musketeer Pack, the Shooter Pack (gears and weapons) and the Parade Pistol (weapon)."

The Notre Dame edition gets all the same DLC except for the Parade Pistol. I said that before. Not really enough to justify it to me. I was going to get the Amazon special edition with the replica pocket watch, but I decided against it because of the DLC.

Yes, you said it before, but as you can see you get a lot more in-game content.

Like I said before, I prefer the guilotine statue. Plus you get a lot more amazing AC stuff. That's why I prefer the guilotine case.

To each their own.

For the NA editions why not just have the same stuff but give us a choice of what box/statue? I mean that could be a way to give a little more option if your not going to give us two different packages.

Name what's in it that's not in the Notre Dame edition. Look at this (http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubiemea/en_GB/pd/ThemeID.8605700/productID.304128700) & this (http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubiemea/en_GB/pd/ThemeID.8605700/productID.304114900/Assassins_Creed%C2%AE_Unity_-_Guillotine_Collectors_Case.html).

Hello assassins!

I am writing this being a liitle bit of concerned about my pre-order and hoping I will find my answers here.

Last sunday I placed an order for Assassin's Creed Unity Guillotine Edition for PC (140 euro) + Altair figurine 50 euro with super express delivery for Romania - 12 euro, a total of 202 euro. After that, this amount of money was withdrawed from my account by Ubisoft.
Today I checked my transactions log and I saw that on Septmember 4th, the day I received the figurine, Ubisoft withdrawed 58 euro (the money for Altair figurine plus the delivery fee?) and two days earlier 10 euro - that deposite fee?
Now I ask you this:

1) Does this mean Ubisoft cancelled my order and I won't get Guillotine Edition?
2) What amount of money do I still have to pay if I will still receive it and when will they withdraw it?

I hope I made myself clear and sorry for any mistakes but I am little tired after this day's work.

Dag_B
09-08-2014, 03:55 PM
Huh? So you payed twice? 202€ after ordering and another 58€+10€ now?

It's different for different payment methods but often they take your money when they ship. So paying for the figurine and not for the Guillotine yet would be normal.
10€ sounds like the preorder fee. That additional 8€... No idea. Shipping costs sounds plausible, though.

Ureh
09-08-2014, 03:56 PM
I'm really confident that you'll get the Guillotine edition. I've never heard of AC special editions running out of stock or orders getting cancelled. Ubishop says that they're supposed to deduct the money (~134 euro) from your account, when the item ships, if you paid with a credit card.

You will get the money deducted as soon as the item ships...that wont happen until November.

Hello!

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
At first, they deducted all the amount (202 euro). Afterwards they gave me back all the money except those 58 euro (Altair figurine) + 10 euro (according to the invoice it must be the deposit fee).

If you used paypal, they take the money right away but if you use credit card they hold the money for a few days
and then they give it back , i guess just to ensure that you have the money.
Then, a few days before the item is shipped they withdraw the money from you credit card.

Due to differences in payment methods used - answers can vary.

When he heard that, there were no videos where you could here the melody.
But yes, no that I say two videos where someone actually plays the music box (although Sarazar just plays 6 tunes and the two girls are playing it really really fast) it sounds like Ezios family (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUVoJ9fcj98).

Once again! The U.S. gets the short stick when it comes to the collector's editions. The Guillotine Edition looks sooo cool and i remember Ubisoft doing this to the U.S. with Black Flag. It sucks because the only way we can ever get the best collector's edition is by buying it from EBAY or AMAZON and not able to use the game because the consoles are region specific. Ubisoft, why do you do this to your loyal U.S. fans?

But it is. Northamerica has their own CEs and Europe and co (all EMEA contries) have their own.
Americans can not but the EMEA editions and Europeans can not buy the US editions.
Different markets, different editions. Nothing unusual here.


Today I say that amazon updated the pocket watch edition with pictures from the watch and material informations. I like it, but you can see, why they only wrote "inspired by". ^^
They also changed the optic of one of the hands.

Composition of the pocket watch


Case and winder: zinc alloy
Chain: ABS
Hand: copper
Window: copper and paper
Mechanism: copper and ABS
Corduroy fabric inside the lid
Although judging from the pictures I would have guessed that the chain is some kind of metal and that the hands are ABS (plastic). Maybe they mixed it up? :confused:

Different markets, different editions. Nothing unusual here.

North America has a CE, not multiple CEs like EMEA, and everything that's in the NA edition is present in one of more of the EMEA CEs. The EMEA Guillotine edition, on the other hand, has multiple items that are not offered in NA (Arno Guillotine Figurine, framed canvas print, metal pak case, lithographs, secret Paris map, Tarot cards), which we don't have access to short of eBay. And we actually can import the other editions so long as the retailer (like Amazon.co.uk or GAME.co.uk) ships to NA. It's just the Guillotine edition that we can't import/buy, because Ubishop doesn't ship to the US (and actually doesn't ship to all countries in EMEA, for that matter). I agree that there's nothing unusual here though - at least not where Ubisoft is concerned :)

Huh - I actually hadn't seen any announcement about the UPlay Steelbook edition. Thanks for posting it.

I just wish everyone had access to every edition, whether it was EMEA or NA. Even if it's not carried by a local retailer and you had to pay international shipping, at least you would have the option of getting what you wanted without have to go through eBay or the like.

Basically, what I want to know is if I preorder the standard edition of Rogue from the PSN Store(PS3) and not from the retailers(amazon, gamestop) would I be able to get the bonus dlc(fort Sable and the weapons) like from the retailers?
