***Encyclopedia does not include ACIII game***

Ubi Workshop just started taking pre-orders for the 2nd edition of the Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia. The first edition sold out quickly and is now going for twice the list price on eBay.

Updates for the Second Edition:
- Hardcover (previously only the European black version was hardcover)
- 80 additional pages (covering ACIII and AC: The Chain)
- etc (see website)

Pre-order price is $39.95 ($10 off list) $49.95. Word of warning, shipping is $13+ via UPS (the cheapest option to Illinois, at least). Also, your credit card is charged when you place the order.

http://store.ubiwork...second-edition/

Update: This can now be purchased in a bundle with the ACIII game and graphic novels with free shipping. See my other post in the CE Compilation Thread: http://www.cheapassg...&postcount=1902

Do they charge when the order is submitted or when it ships?

I just pre-ordered one, shipping was $13.36 for me. Looks like its coming from France, I hope I don't get hit with a foreign exchange rate fee on my credit card since the merchant's name is also in French.

Edit: It might be coming from Canada...

Suddenly very glad I didn't get the first one, will probably bite on this one. Revelations was a bit of a disappointment for several reasons, but I'm still on the AC train overall.

I didn't even know about the first one... but since they're just adding information to update it to Revelations, there's a good chance they'll just release another edition with ACIII and the subsequent ACIII sequels (like a Brotherhood and Revelations equivalent).

The second edition is updated to AC3 not Revelations. The release date for this second edition is not until October. If ubisoft told the truth about ending Desmond's story in AC3, I don't see myself buying another encyclopedia for a spin off.

Was the original edition available for purchase anywhere other than the Ubi store? I might pick this one up, but it'd be nice if there were better deals to be had.

Ah, my mistake... don't know why, but I thought ACIII as Revelations.

I might have to get this then.:-k

I'm so tempted... and chances are, I may forget about it, so it'll be a nice surprise when it arrives in October.

AC 2 had me excited for brotherhood, which wasnt bad. But the quick release of Revelations and 3 announcement just means that they cooked the golden goose.

Not saying you should pay inflated prices but you aren't doing yourself a favor. The one online is the real edition, first print, which is most worthwhile.

I'm sad I even bought the first edition. They sent me email about second edition today and it looks awesome.

Anybody know if things will ship separately if I order a shirt too? Don't really want to wait until October to get the shirt. Or pay separate shipping to get it sooner.

When was the first edition released!? I never even knew about this until now.. Not really worth getting a second edition though, i much rather have a first.

Yea i know but i the rarity of the first edition is favored a bit more. But i'll think about this.. I'll order only if they charge when they ship which i'm sure they do.

Has anyone used PayPal to order this? I'm wondering if PayPal funds will be "charged" when you order or if it waits until shipping...

What's this "coupon code" supposed to be?

Unless your going to re-sell it, I think the second edition is worth more. Its the definitive edition covering the AC trilogy with Desmonds story arc if ubisoft did not lie about ending Desmond's story in AC3.

  • Up-to-date with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed: The Chain narrative content
  • Revised content from the first edition based on all feedback (dev team and community)
  • Over 80 new pages of content
  • New cartes blanches
  • Hardcover
80 new pages, hardcover, revisions to the content in the 1st edition, plus additional stuff covering AC3 should make this the best edition of the encyclopedia to an AC fan for personal ownership.

Was the original edition available for purchase anywhere other than the Ubi store? I might pick this one up, but it'd be nice if there were better deals to be had.


I'm pretty sure this is only sold in Ubi's store.

Has anyone used PayPal to order this? I'm wondering if PayPal funds will be "charged" when you order or if it waits until shipping...

I think they only accept Paypal. Anyways I did pay with Paypal and was charged immediately.
