$1.99 for the Premium Version

So you don't need to load images and you can see everything side by side:
+ Access Co-op Mission Heatmaps
+ Get Exclusive Content From the Database
+ Unlock Four Exclusive Assassins
+ Get Five Additional Recruitment Slots
+ Unlock an Exclusive Initiates Avatar (Initiates is back!)
+ Locate Sync Points in Co-op Missions
+ Unlock Co-op Mission Heatmaps
+ Track Creed Points opportunities
+ Track players' paths in each mission
+ Track where enemies are killed
+ Track where players desynchronize
+ Track where conflicts start
+ Unlock exclusive Assassin's Creed Music
+ Unlock exclusive Assassin's Creed Concept Art
Nomad Brotherhood (minigame on the companion app):
+ Unlock Four Exclusive Assassins (they become purchasable, but have full upgrade potential)
+ Get Five Additional Recruitment Slots
Social Clubs Income:
+ Assign an Assassin to a Social Clug to double its Nomad Points income
Locate Sync Points in Co-op missions:
+ Locate Sync Points on the Assassin's Creed Unity Companion map while playing a Co-op mission

$2 isn't too bad. The Thief companion app was way more expensive just to gain access to the Prima guide maps (which had missing information anyways).

So Purchasing the Premium gives you access to exclusive assassins in Unity?

GameSpawn1529d ago (Edited 1529d ago )

No the Nomad Companion Mini-game. There are 4 "Premium" assassins that have full Attack, Defense, and Stealth potential in the Nomad minigame. Each assassin in the minigame has these three stats, but some of the assassins only have stats that go so far.

Considering the minigame's rewards cross-pollinate into Unity this isn't so much of a bad thing.

$1.99 for me is iOS and USD. Android may charge tax for your region or there is a weird currency exchange?

I used the Black Flag app all the time, made a lot of in game money with it.

Anyone know what this unlocks in game?

Premium pack show as $2.40 for me on Android.
