This game was released on November 15, 2011 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is an upcoming action-adventure game by Ubisoft, and a sequel to Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It will take place in Constantinople in 1511 AD for the most part, where you will play as Ezio and attempt to unlock a powerful artifact that could be used against the Templars. Desmond in modern days, and Altair in the past will also be controllable in various stages of the game.

The gameplay of AC:R will be similar to the previous installments in the franchise, but some new elements will be introduced too. One of these is the hookblade, a weapon which will allow Ezio to use zip-lines to navigate the city faster, as well as pull enemies in for a finishing blow. Another addition is a crafting system that will let you make bombs of various types.

AC: Revelations will also include a multiplayer mode with new maps and characters. The players will be able to customize their appearance and choose their own weapon.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations preorder bonus list

The situation with AC:R pre-order incentives in the US is somewhat one-sided, seeing how the beefy Signature Edition is only available at one retailer:

  • GameStop is offering the Signature Edition of the game which includes an extra single player mission, enhanced weapon capabilities, bonus multiplayer character, an animated short film, and the original game soundtrack. Signature Edition is exclusive to GameStop.
  • Amazon will reward you with an exclusive Altair outfit skin, which allows Ezio to don the wardrobe of his legendary predecessor for the game’s entire single-player campaign. Console versions also get a free pair of TriOviz 3D glasses which enable 3D gameplay on most 2D HDTVs. On the other hand, PC gamers can get 15% off the PC version by preordering via Amazon Game Downloads.
  • BestBuy will give you an exclusive multiplayer character, the Crusader.
  • Walmart has an Armor of Brutus skin for Ezio (console versions only).
  • Steam: preordering the PC version of AC:R with them will get you an Ottoman Doctor multiplayer character.

Besides the standard one, the game will also have several editions with extra content – namely Special Edition, Collectors Edition, Animus Edition, and the Ultimate Bundle. Needless to say, these will come with a higher price tag as well.

Find out what items they contain below (keep in mind some editions might not be available in your region). US gamers should be looking at the Ultimate Bundle:
