    I have no idea why people go crazy for all this stuff, when everybody knows it'll all come out later as DLC...

    The place you preorder from should be based strictly on convenience; which in my case is always Gamestop since there's one five minutes away from my house. I'll be getting early access to the Captain Morgan gun and the black ship (whatever that is) and then a few weeks later I'll inevitably download all the other stuff.

    Don't worry about it. Only buy the basic game for the cheapest price you can find close to launch. Do not buy a season pass. Wait, and pick up the DLC you want when it falls to a sensible price, if at all. You're a fan, and therefore you'll play the game more than once. Wait to play it a second time to celebrate your eventual DLC purchase, and then play the complete game as it was meant to be.

    The likelihood is that none of this is truly exclusive, and if it is, it's probably something forgettable that constitutes a tiny amount of the game. Sure, if you buy an expensive box you get some of it on day one, but it's almost certainly disappointing stuff. If there's anything really good coming, it's not going to be in these day one boxes.

    You forget those... what's the correct term, steering wheels?
    I only know the german pictures of those:
    Trove of Mystery (I think thats that one): http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/emea/ubi_...vollerFund.jpg
    Pride of the West Indies: http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/emea/ubi_...chenInseln.jpg

    The last one we have a picture is "The Castaway’s Prize": http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/emea/ubi_...chenInseln.jpg
    Sorce, german announcements


    Which brings me to the question:
    How do you know which one are in the Black Chest edition? As it says "all preorders" I thought those items like the sword of eden must be included too?

    The sword of Eden is a usable weapon? Do you think it'll work just as a sword or will it have special powers? Also, do you think it plays a part in the storyline? So far the only Pieces of Eden we've used in the game have been Apples and Staffs. It'd be interesting to discover more about the others.

    No, it just says that you get for example "Black island quest" by preordering from GameStop OR in the Buccaneer Edition (regardless where you buy it) OR in the Black Chest edition (which is Uplayexclusive but the mission is in the Box so no need to preorder at GS). And so on.

    @OP, yes, it is getting ridiculous. I'll preorder anyway, and I'll buy all the dlc, but this is simply excessive.
