Okay, I kind of feel dumb making this thread, but I swear, Unity has the most confusing preorder system I've ever seen, and I haven't seen any other threads on the topic. All of this stuff will inevitably come out as part of the season pass (hopefully including the MacFarlane stuff this time as well :nonchalance:) but I keep seeing these packs advertised, and for the life of me I can't figure out how you're supposed to get them.

They aren't the retailer exclusive ones, because those have already been outlined.

So where do you preorder to get those four packs? I've only ever seen them advertised as "preorder packs" with no further information. I've got my eye on the Royal Arsenal one in particular, but I can't figure out how to get it.

Hm... so it seems they ARE retailer exclusive, just not the "big four" NA retailers that are officially advertised by Ubi. Thanks for the link, though unfortunately I can't partake as I'm in the US and it would be ungodly expensive to order the game through New Zealand.

they probably will be retail exclusive for NA retailers as well, just aren't detailed yet.

I dunno, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and Gamestop already have their bonuses outlined.

Very curious to see one of the long range rifles fired. Wonder how much they have improved on AC4 shooting mechanics. Will it be pure free-aim and will gunshots affect the enviroment? Also interesting that eagle vission now has a cooldwon and range parameters.

Most of these packs are included in the Guilotine case and I believe you can also get some with the unite program, but both are for Europeans only.

All those items are included in the Pre-Order for the physical copy of the Bastille Edition on Uplay shop France.
They will be in the season pass i presume...

The Prussian pack and Shooter pack combine together and the Musketeer pack and Royal arsenal pack should be one.

If you live in the UK - GAME have an exclusive edition which contains the above DLC packs apart from one of them.
http://www.game.co.uk/en/assassins-creed-unity-revolution-edition-only-at-game-300974?catGroupId=
It also contains the exclusive mission.
As I live in the UK I will probs buy this edition as its the only one that contains all of the above packs without spending tons on the big editions.

Wrong thread. There is a special thread to recruit people. If you haven't redeemed your code yet, i suggest you join a team instead of making a new one.

One more thing. The pants let you "fall from higher without taking damage". This is interesting. I was under the impression that controlled descent pretty much meant you couldn't fall. Hmmm wonder how that works.

Maybe the guards can knock you down while we're climbing, etc. or maybe it's possible to mess up on the parkour (ie no auto-guidance system)

Yeah those are options! Seems like there's still things we don't know about the parkour.

I imagine you'll still be able to screw up (i.e. pressing X instead of O near a ledge so you go leaping off instead of climbing down). Probably not really an issue for us, considering we've been playing AC for years and O has always been the "down" button, but for somebody still learning the controls I imagine having the "safety net" of the trousers would be a boon. Nothing more frustrating than screwing up and dying stupidly because you aren't familiar with the controls.

Plus, guards will probably still throw rocks and shoot you, though that's never knocked you completely off a building before.

Basically, I think the system will be as follows:

Hold R2 for running
Hold R2 and X to climb up
Hold R2 and O to do controlled descent

I think if you just hold R2 and you are running on a rooftop and you do not use controlled descent, I reckon you will just drop off the building as you are just running. Basically you have to time the parkour well or you will muck it up. Thats what I think anyway.

Yep, you are right I just replied sadly to an old post regarding the redeeming of the Mc Farlane ULCs ' scam and how many of us were some " naive idiots" for getting those mostly for extra contents that were already locked in our retail version of AC4BF (at least for PS3/XB360). I seriously and without regret gave my Mc Farlane AC4 figures to charity after being so pissed by the deception of not being able to redeeming them on my system.(I could not stand them in my shelves any longer without having the sadness to remembering (at my age) how much stupid naive fan "buttarded" boy I had been to collecting them for that BS extra content that was trapped in my retail version of the game) - Like the Who sang "we won't get fooled again",and I encourage people to be that stupid (money is money and we should not be that ridiculously stupids to spend extra money for just a game and especially for a company that make you pay for what you already pay for)

The pre-ordering thing is just a marketing move that is becoming more a more confusing for customers (thank to Ubisoft - Watch Dogs anyone?) and if should be banish by them. They are no point to pre-ordering games that won't be missing on day one release just to having extra content that are already trapped (locked) as ULC s in the game. Kust by them later and you will see that the DLC relies on some 178 Kb size which usually correspond to the size of a code (meaning that you pre-order "DLC" is already in your retail disk (or other medium) as an ULC, but you need the code in order to unlock it). That practice is ridiculous and honestly take the fans and costumer for naive imbecile. Ubisoft? Well no longer the case. "Ubuysoft?" well not even close....U buy hard only!
