Assassin’s Creed: Unity has not one, but four different pre-order bonuses

Continuing Ubisoft’s trend of auctioning off a piece of in-game content to each retailer, Assassin’s Creed: Unity has four pre-order bonuses, one per retailer.

Amazon, GameStop, Walmart and Best Buy are the four retailers that are getting their own, exclusive, in-game items.

Amazon – Pioneer Axe, “a battleaxe like no other.”
GameStop – Razorhead Spear, “no armour is safe.”
Walmart – Maple Hunting Rifle, “they’ll never see it coming.”
Best Buy – Under/Over Pistol, “shoot twice, ask questions later. (Assassin's Creed Unity, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Ridiculous

Tell me about it..soon enough they will be dividing a single game into 3-4 hrs episodes and still sell them for $60!

The sad thing is that millions will still buy them...

"Oh my god all these pre-order BULLSH*T!"

Then dont buy it.

"I cant believe the developers are able to get away with this"

Then dont buy it.

"Why does every game have to have multiple pre-order bonus! Its ridiculous cash-grabbing!"

Then dont buy it.

The preorder bonuses are usually good for a little bit, but get dwarfed soon after.

It wil all be available on dlc later

So, a few in-game weapons that will become useless after you've played for roughly 30 minutes and unlock something better

I'd be surprised if they had less than 3, now that would be news.
matrixman92  +   566d ago
wow, no dlc missions this time. I remember buying all the AC3 preorder missions on ebay..then they released them with the season pass, which I also already had. I was so mad
X-23  +   566d ago
Oh? None of these include a Female Assassin Model? Pass...on the whole game fuck it, it's not like I'll be missing out on anything.
EdoubleD  +   565d ago
Were you being serious?
X-23  +   565d ago
Nope. Just my way of saying I don't find the preorder incentive appealing at all and that its ridiculous to have it chopped up and spread out through different stores. It's not like the content isn't on everyone's game disc already.

You can usually "redeem" some damn good weapons/items from uplay, as well.

Don't care I refuse to pay retail price for this game for that very reason of milking this franchise into the ground.
rawshack  +   566d ago
ladys relax theres other pre order deals.on mighty ape there giving away a flagg and playing cards.
aliengmr  +   566d ago
Of course it does.

Before long games will probably be literally split and sectioned off so you have to buy each part from different retailers.

I kid, of course, but tell its not depressing that it isn't out of the realm of possibility.
ironfist92  +   566d ago
I dont understand people.

What would you prefer, pre-ordering the game and NOT getting a little gift? Its just a weapon, which has no affect or relevance to the game at all.

Im sure we've all purchased items which offer a little gift or present for purchasing it many times.

And if you're upset about it, then...dont pre-order it, I guess? Doesnt make a difference.
aliengmr  +   565d ago
Too much to ask them to provide the complete package I guess. Between pre-order crap and planned DLCs you are paying for a partial product and its only getting worse.

But enjoy you're little gifts.
ironfist92  +   565d ago
Will do.

Me and the millions of other people who arent cry-babies.
