    Sorry I don't have an answer for you but does the Ubi shop tell which version you received from the Nvidia code?

    It'll show up once the game releases. It's the same for anything pre-ordered etc.

    Yep. I got the Nvidia promo for Blacklist and that is exactly how it worked.

    Also, it may not show up on its own upon release. How it worked for Blacklist was you had to keep an eye on your order history. The day that released, the order history updated with a game key that you had to redeem in the Uplay client which added the game directly. It didnt pop up magically as soon as it was released, the key just got added to the order. It didnt even send a second email. That release was a bit wonky though. The day of release they delayed it by like an hour. Don't expect to be able to play AC4 at midnight unless they have a pre-load.

    Keep this in mind if release day hits and the game doesnt show up in the client. Check your order history once it releases (you'll know it released b/c the storefront for the game will say "available") and the game key will likely be there. This one may be handled differently, so I could be wrong, but that's what happened with the Blacklist Nvidia promos.

    Don't expect a pre-load. What's messed up about that is that Steam got to preload it, but Uplay didn't. Here's hoping Ubi allows us to preload AC4.

    This is an unbelievably confusing system. I redeemed the code yet have no faith that I will actually receive the game on the release date as it appears nowhere in my account. I guess I will just live in fear until the 19th.

    I wouldn't mind purchasing the season pass as well but I looked around for it and gave up in total confusion and frustration.

    Go to this page: https://shop.ubi.com/store?Action=he...S&SiteID=ubina

    And look up your order history. Mine shows up in there, but it shows nowhere else. It wont show anywhere in the client until release. It stinks, but this is how Ubi does it and for me the lack of any information directly from them is frustrating, but this is how its done.

    Read my post above yours in respect to what happened on Blacklist release day. Your order history may very well be important on that day. If it doesnt show up in the client when the servers refresh (very possible that it wont) go into your order history and look up the order, it should be updated with a key, just plug that key into your uplay client and it will DL the game.

    1. Dont expect to play it at midnight on release day.
    2. Blacklist came out at 2pm EST on release day. It was delayed 1 hour. Its basically like how Steam does a lot of new releases in that you have to wait until 10am PST/1pm EST for their server to refresh.

    The season pass is right here:
    http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubina/en_U...ason_Pass.html

    I found that by searching "season pass" in the shop.

    Thanks, man. My order does appear on that page. Sucks we can't preload, but I can live with that.

    On the Season Pass, there is a promo where you get a discount on it if you preorder the game. Doesn't seem to be working because the system doesn't recognize that you've already preordered. Gonna hold off to see if there is some other deal on that I guess.

    Did you go through the entire order process? Did you get a confirmation email after you placed the order?

    I have AC4 on Nvidia promo as well, and I have the order in my history and also received a confirmation email. Try going through the steps again, you may have not completed the process.

    As for the season pass, I have no idea. I hate the concept of them and am thrilled that many companies are doing away with them. I'm not even going to consider it until its 50% off.
