With the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity set for current-generation only consoles, gamers around the world are gearing up for a week they may never forget.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is more than a new release in a long running franchise. The November 11th Assassin’s Creed Unity release date will mark the first time a game in series has been released with the new Xbox One and PS4 consoles in mind. It’s been designed to specifically run on these new consoles and that’s allowed developer Ubisoft to deliver an experience beyond anything its done in past games. The city of Paris, France that users will play in is vast, and almost every game mechanic has been tweaked in some way. With the stakes this high it’s pretty easy to understand why everyone is so excited for Assassin’s Creed Unity release night.
Here’s what you need to know so that Assassin’s Creed Unity is on or in your Xbox One or PS4 and playable the moment it is available to everyone else.
Assassin’s Creed Unity Release In Stores
Digital game downloads are getting more popular all the time, but it’s still a sure thing that most buyers are going to experience Assassin’s Creed Unity release night from a store of some kind. That’s still the way most people get their games it seems.
Every games retailer will have Assassin’s Creed Unity ready to purchase on November 11th. That includes Target and Wal-Mart. As most Wal-Mart stores are open overnight, no one should have a problem picking up the game there after midnight. If you’ve reserved a copy for pick up ahead of Assassin’s Creed Unity release day at a store what isn’t doing a midnight release you should expect it to be available on November 11th during their normal business hours.
So far, two companies have confirmed that they will be open at Midnight on November 11th. The first is Best Buy, who will have a limited number of stores available for users to purchase Assassin’s Creed Unity alongside Assassin’s Creed Rogue for the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, all of its stores won’t be open so users are better off calling ahead to their local Best Buy store now. There’s a tool on the company’s pre-order page for examining which stores will be open too. Those who pre-order from Best Buy get a free Chemical Revolution Mission, a special pistol and a chance to participate in a special Assassins’ Creed Unity Sweepstakes.
The other store staying open on Assassin’s Creed Unity release night is GameStop, it seems. The company hasn’t announced any big plans, but it’ll be open for Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s release. It’s hard to imagine that the company won’t let those who’ve pre-ordered pick up Assassin’s Creed Unity too. Access to Chemical Revolution and the Assassin’s Creed Unity Sweepstakes is also available at GameStop. instead of a pistol, GameStop shoppers get exclusive access to a razor head spear, according to GameStop.
The Microsoft Store will also be open late that night for buyers of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Again, its hard to imagine that they wouldn’t let people purchase Assassin’s Creed Unity too. The Microsoft Store is giving $10 Xbox gift card to those who pre-order Assassin’s Creed Unity.
