Ubisoft has seen fit to tell the masses about their new European VIP program for gamers who pre-order Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag through retail, online stores, or Ubisoft’s very own Uplay. This VIP program, cleverly named “The Watch,” will grant players access to exclusive content like early information about upcoming events and news about the Assassin’s Creed series; features covering the series’ cultural influences, characters, and settings; custom content players create that can be viewed by fans, including an area where users can compare their skills and achievements and an “Experts” section that can be updated by members of the community who have a deep, obsessive knowledge of the Assassin’s Creed universe; and timed quests for members that unlock various rewards and cool stuff, which can be tracked through the global leaderboards (fanatics like me will now have to split our time up between hunting for achievements through the games and hunting for them through the web, which means I will never enjoy sleep again). For all those fancy pants peeps out there who think desktop computers are too old school, “The Watch” is also customizable for tablets and smartphones. More information about this special VIP program can be found here, and a veritable treasure trove of knowledge about the series can be accessed here. Enjoy the way-too-dramatic trailer for “The Watch” below.
