    Pack 9 has been a big milestone for AC Initiates and despite some bugs (which are still under investigation) it looks like you had a lot of fun with it.

    Again you’ve proven to be an exceptional community: mature, helpful, constructive, and enthusiastic. So… don’t you think it’s time to talk about the future again?

    Pack 10 is planned for a release around the third week of September. So let’s take a look at some of the things you will find in it:


    New AC3 Missions (with XPs and badges): Missions you might say? Well yes, Operations will be renamed Missions starting with Pack 10. Expect longer and tougher missions… with more variety.

    If everything works as planned –because we still have some technical uncertainties – the multiplayer stats will at long last be plugged into the system (that is, your profile). The way it works is pretty simple: if you’re Level 50, you get 2500 XP; if you’re Level 49, you get 2450 XP, and so on. No doubt some of you will get a serious level boost thanks to this!

    Forums will get a facelift: Readability will be improved and, as you can see below, your level and your top three badges will now show up next to your Uplay username.


    A new section will show up in your profile: My Collection.


    This area will now automatically track and display what you own and play. It will obviously start with games, but our goal is to progressively extend this feature to as many things as possible.

    For example, after redeeming your codes on (available soon) your Mc Farlane Figurines will show up here.

    What else? Well, a lot of tweaks and new additions everywhere, but you will have to wait for the Pack 10 release to see all this in detail.

    Now for a peek beyond Pack 10 (no release dates on these yet):

    • There will be rewards linked to your level including rewards you can use in ACIV.

    • Some exclusive interviews will show up from time to time. There will be classic interviews but also interactive Q&A with people working on Assassin’s Creed. You will be able to ask your questions on the forums (on specific topics, yet to be announced) and the interviewees will answer you directly.

    • Initiates will be localized at some point beginning with French (in 2013). Other languages will show up in the future (2014).

    • As you know, daily C.TAGs will be back (one way or another) with XP.

    And much more…

    That looks already amazing and the fact that there will be inactive Q&As with the developers are awesome. We have a much higher chance of getting our questions answered then~[not like Twitter where it's nearly impossible sometimes and where you have a limit on symbols to use]

    One question to the collection section... how will we be able to..well.. show which product we already own? I know that there are codes on the figurines we could enter... but comics and so on have no we only have to click on each product to show that we own it? [Yes, the collection section confuses me pretty much..]

    And will we be able to see the others Profiles in a different way then, will we see more?

    O.O that is awesome...interactive Q&A's, and exclusive interviews :D

    I think we have a code already...don't forget the code that we hacked out of the animus after the end of ACIII. does that mean we get "The Animus" collection figurine ? :P

    KOTOVVIKTOR that would be the third week of September...:D
