What about us Australians. Always getting shafted by Microsoft and game publishers.
We have no option for going from Xbox 360 to Xbox one. Should have purchased the PlayStation versions. The code comes in the retail package and simple $10 upgrade option on PS4 release. (Getting both consoles but should have directed all me purchases to PS3 versions for upgrade options)
Will my bonus content for preordering be available to me once I upgrade to the PS4 version? Or will I need to actually preorder a copy of the game on ps4 to get those extras?
Alright me lads and ladies. I hope ye all enjoy playing out my story when it's released. It's an eventful one, so be prepared for whatever may happen. And remember, when you are in battle, TAKE NO QUARTER AND GIVE THEM NEITHER!
I just contacted Gamestop and looked on Amazon, the date for the PC is December 31st. Do you know something that they don't know?
That date is a general placeholder some retailers / sites use. The PC release date for North America is, indeed, as stated above.
There's your PC Requirements
I hope so. I want to play on PC, and I don't know if I have enough patience to wait for the end of the year.
