E3 2011: Assassin's Creed: Revelations preorder bonuses detailed

Buying Ubisoft's latest in advance for 360 or PS3 earns in-game mission, multiplayer character, short film, soundtrack.

LOS ANGELES--Ubisoft has had no shortage of things to say about its popular Assassin's Creed franchise at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. In addition to closing out its media briefing on Monday with additional details on this year's Revelations, the publisher offered first word on its new Assassin's Creed project for Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console.

Today, Ubisoft returned with preorder information on Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which is due for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 15. Those who purchase Revelations in advance at GameStop for the Xbox 360 or PS3 will automatically receive a free upgrade for the game's Signature Edition, granting them a bevy of in-game and bonus content.

Signature Edition upgrades are free at GameStop for preorderers.

Specifically, the Signature Edition includes an extra single-player gameplay mission, as well as an exclusive multiplayer character and weapon capacity upgrades. Assassin's Creed: Revelations' special edition also features multimedia perks, coming as it does with an animated short film and an original soundtrack.

For those who would rather buy their games in advance at Best Buy, Assassin's Creed: Revelations will include an exclusive multiplayer character.

Ubisoft also announced today that it has released a range of new Xbox 360 Avatar items based on Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Earlier this week, the publisher released an Xbox Avatar collection celebrating the company's 25th anniversary. The limited-run collection expires on June 21.

@Sirbobislost I have disagreed with Ubisoft giving ps3 DLC exlusive from day 1. I have always said and will continue to say, if a game is on more than one system and a DLC is released it should be for BOTH systems, not just 1.

@Frosty192 It's pretty good nice improvements over AC2 although having an army of assaisins at your disposal makes it a bit to easy at times still worth a play and you should be able to pick it up cheap

@MrAssassin83 But the ps3 got exclusive dlc for brotherhood and free DLC Also the only exclusive thing the xbox is getting are avatars which isn't exactly worth crying that ubisoft are xbox fanboys...

I don't see the problem with gamestop. Just because there a big company doesn't mean you have to "stick it to the man". And besides, they give me the best deals i can find (besides amazon)

Peo-ple complain too much. I hate Gamestop as well but in my case my only other choice is online, wal-mart or ebay and those are even worse. If I was ubisoft and I could gain from throwing a few extra things to gamestop I would too. The extra content is usually so trivial that it makes little impact anyways and atleast ubisoft is not like activision, putting half of the content on the disc and making people download the rest later for twenty dollars a set. I love ubisoft and Uplay.

Of course X Box gets the first DLC again. Why is Ubisoft so one sided? Everyone should get the Avatars, PS3 and X Box. Don't favor one side.

This retailer exclusive crap is getting out of hand. I prefer to buy my games from Amazon.

I'm fine if people want to get an extra skin or something, but it's realllly greedy of gamestop to get people to go to them so they get an extra level... I mean, if it's available from day one, it should be to everyone, and I'm disappointed ubisoft are thinking like the big companies now

I wish that the deluge of 'pre-order and gain an extra level' would stop, this stuff should be on disc already if it's available from day one. i guess I'll be pre-ordering anyway, I can't wait to get back to shivving a barrage of worthy enemies and sending them to their premature graves.

how about skyrim and revelations at the same time...

Really enjoy this series. But I'll probably be playing Skyrim until February. Ubisoft historically drops the prices on their games rather fast, so I'll probably pick it up then for $39.99. Thanks for the incentives, though.

Was probably going to preorder anyway, but this is a good incentive.
