It seems that the various special editions of Watch Dogs Legion should be equipped with an early access start. However, as Ubisoft announced, the company decided to cancel the early access from the special editions of the game.
As it was to be expected, Watch Dogs Legion is one of the AAA-title productions that are being released with various special editions. In detail, we are dealing with the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s Editions, which include various additional content such as the Season Pass or exclusive digital extras.
In addition, it was announced at the time that buyers of Collector’s editions should be given early access, so that they can get started three days before everyone else. However, this will never happen again.
Instead, Ubisoft noted in the official FAQ section that the company decided to remove early access from the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s editions. As the official sources say, the additional development time was used to rethink the general experience for users and to cancel the earlier access.
“The Season Pass has been enhanced to offer players additional story-based content while still delivering the premium characters and cosmetics from the original pass. Additionally, all editions of Watch Dogs Legion will be released simultaneously on 10.29.2020. As a result, the “3 days early access” has been removed from the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s Editions of Watch Dogs Legion,” the post mentions.
