Ubisoft has announced the preorder bonuses for Assassin's Creed Rogue, this November's action game coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Reserving a copy of the game at GameStop, Amazon, and Ubisoft's own store will net you the following bonuses.

  • The Ultimate Hunter Pack -- Various Templar weapons and items
  • The Siege of Fort de Sable Mission - Described as a "fort raiding" mission

It is unclear if Ubisoft will offer the Assassin's Creed Rogue preorder content to all players later on, but that wouldn't be too surprising.

The game is so far confirmed only for Xbox 360 and PS3. PC gamers looking for a new Assassin's Creed game to play this year aren't out of luck entirely, however, as Assassin's Creed Unity will be available for PC, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

No Caption Provided

The preorder bonuses for Assassin's Creed Unity, meanwhile, are quite a bit more extensive than Assassin's Creed Rogue's, and are split between various retailers.

Assassin's Creed Rogue launches November 11 (two weeks after Assassin's Creed Unity) and is set in North America in the 18th century during the Seven Years' War. Instead of playing as an Assassin, you will control a Templar named Shay Patrick Cormac, hunting down Assassins. The game also features a significant naval combat mode that expands upon the foundation created by last year's game, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

All you people can complain all you want cause I dont give a flying f**k, Im gonna preorder and im gonna buy it, your complaining about preorder bonuses have zero effect on me. Still looks like a fun game and Ill get right into it.

Idk if this question was already asked or not but , will you still get the pre-order bonuses if you pre-order the game off of Amazon ?

I have zero problem with extra weapons or maybe a new outfit for a perorder is fine. But to remove a mission away from someone that does not preorder the game is a real shame. Guess I might pick this up when it hits 20 dollars next year. Companies doing this type of thing are pushing me out of gaming all together.

it's sad because people will buy it anyway


you can't change the world, but one thing is sure

i won't buy it, i won't support this BS, and i sure as sh*t will spend my money on a better game (such as the witcher 3)

1. Day one DLC
2. Microtransactions
3. Deluxe digital editions
4. Pre-order bonuses
5. Retailer exclusive content
6. Boost packs
7. Remaster/HD edition a few months after launch
8. Brand new DLC exclusive to the remastered/HD edition launched a few months after the original game

Yup, that's pretty much why I think the gaming industry gets more disgusting each day.

@bernard978 @pikachudude860 @DeadorRock Saying CDPR wouldn't do "this" is like saying my fudge will never melt. I've never seen fudge melt actually.... but then again I've never actually seen CDPR release any actual DLC apart from one small side mission. So just because they never do something doesn't mean they deserve credit for doing nothing???????? I don't have cancer.. must be all the irn bru I drink. Get a grip.


The choice is all yours ofcourse to buy this game or not. If you can wait a year or so before buying it then you obviously have no real need, passion or want for these games.


Theres one guy who says that hes happy for extra weapons and outfits but a mission is too far? So he understands in his head that the mission is removed from the game but the others aren't? Either way he is wrong. The mission, a mere 20 -30 mins of additional gameplay maybe even only 15mins. Why do you say its taken from the game? It was never promised to you as part of the initial game. In fact the devs have made the decision to separate it. It's not as if they made you a meatball sandwich and took out the meatballs. They made you a sandwich and asked if you would like some meatballs. ( : D im happy with that).


Anyway, the devs say the content is separate and you cant say otherwise without acting like self entitled naïve brats. To be able to have that content separate they have to of made the game flow without it and there for it does not affect gameplay so no the content is not just ripped out and sold to you as extra. Neither is it CORE game content.


Im not just needlessly defending a bad practise but until they start trying to sell core game features I completely disagree that "this" is "ruining gaming". It is by the way a first world hobby and nothing else.


Look at assassins creed unity just for a last example. We discuss whether the content is "STOLEN" from you. So as we can see with unity there are many versions to choose from. You can buy digital or physical copies. Each offer has its own rewards. If you pick digital you wont receive the rewards from physical and these may only be outfits and weapons but are game content none the less. You pick one option and forfeit the rest. Making it more fun to choose an offer but also meaning that you are not exclusively entitled to all that game content. So stop being so self entitled on the internet. Realise they are just games and the choice is yours ultimately. But that doesn't mean you have to spread you're ignorance.

I swear some of you guys jump to conclusions wayy too quickly.

Go see the Activision article. Gamers are wising up to this bulls.hit.


Stop preordering games. Do not accept content that is locked out if you don't preorder. Always wait for reviews. Always.

Your pre-order bonus is you travel back in time to 2009 to play a game on obsolete gaming hardware so you don't feel like a left behind cheap @ss b@stard for not upgrading to modern hardware.

<< LINK REMOVED >>Wait a second... I'm a cheap @ss b@stard for not spending a significant portion of the money I had to earn myself on a relatively new piece of hardware such as the ONE/PS4 which has not gone on sale and is worth my expenses for one 4 month course of University education? For which most of the games out right now are multiplatfrom remakes that cost more than their last gen counterparts? When the only other alternative would be to pursue a PC, which is only cheaper if I decide to build one myself (a task I neither have the technical know how nor time to complete) and cheaper in the sense that it MAY only cost a hundred dollars more than what I would have to pay for the ONE/PS4? Thing is my friend I DO have a job but I value my money and my job enough that I don't see fit to invest in something that I consider unproven. Unity looks to be a fine title but you know I've already seen how much of let down so many of the current gen games are. Hell most of the gaming I do anyways is on a budget with PC offering enough low price indie titles to sate my appetite in games and with last gen having so many titles that I have not played. Do not confuse frugality with cheapness... I see fit to spend only a certain amount of my income on games each year simply because my other expenses take priority. I mean do you see it as unfavourable to WAIT and see if something is half as decent as it appears to be? Do you yourself not bother looking for sales in titles some time after release? I might understand if say you were a games journalist/critic and absolutely needed the new rig to boot up these titles in glorius 1080p/4K 5 seconds after launch etc... Hell I haven't even mentioned that with the Xbox 360 and PS3 we must have seen AT LEAST 3 iterations of both consoles before they released a "definitive version" that ironed out most of the kinks. Quite frankly if you bought either of these consoles this early on and you have other higher priority expenses you've just set yourself up for disappointment. Hell my point already makes itself clear with the availability of a kinect-less xbox with the same hardware performance minus an underutilized peripheral and woe to anyone who didn't buy it through the specific retailer willing to refund some of the expense if you choose to pick up the kinectless version. But I don't imagine that many of those people who actually need this stuff for their jobs are such elitist snobs about it.

I wouldn't think that they'd even need that long to take full advantage of next-gen and PC horsepower but I'm no developer and porting is something of a lost art in games development it seems... Not everyone seems to understand how to do it perfectly....

I have a counter bonus for ya all. Don't preorder it, wait six months while playing all the backlogged games in your collection, then find a copy on eBay for $10. You can thank me later.

I remember the days:

#1. We didn't care what our characters wore.

#2. The only way to make your characters close change colors was to eat a special plant.

#3. All of the game was included in one price.

#4. And the only way to get something special was to complete the game.

Damn I'm old!!
