UK retailers sell Assassins Creed IV early, customers won’t be penalized but ladders will be reset on launch

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 7.54.53 pmIt appears as if at least one UK retailer has thrown caution to the wind by selling copies of Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag a few days early. Scheduled to be released on October 29, we know of one customer who was happy to purchase the game, install it and proudly show it off by sending us a photo. To make sure it was legit, we even consulted his XBLA account page and found the game was indeed installed and he was already 2% of the way through it.

Screen Shot 2013-10-27 at 7.53.14 pmRumour has it the retailer was warning customers they could face significant bans if found to be playing the game early, but lead game designer, Tim Browne has tweeted that players won’t be penalized for the early release and blamed the retailers for the error in putting the game out early. Browne also added that the levels achieved by players who legitimately purchased the game won’t be reset, but the multiplayer ladders will be reset on launch.

The P.E. Perspective: We heard rumblings one retailer might be warnings customers with “life” bans, but we have no confirmation they said as much. It seems a little stupid to put the responsibility on the customers when the retailers are really the ones in whom the publishers place their trust. Early releases spoil the game for everyone in regards to storyline spoilers, levels and ladders – so it’s nice to see the devs are conscious about this and will reset MP ladders on launch. I suppose if you’re into the storyline it would be a good idea to try and stay away from social media for the next few days.
