Ubisoft is working the hype train with the release of a trailer that shows off their upcoming companion service (and companion application) for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag called The Watch. This companion service and application will be available to players who have pre-ordered the Pirate themed edition of the Assassin's Creed Saga.
If you've pre-ordered this version of the Assassin's Creed Saga, you will be able to sign up for VIP access to the upcoming companion service The Watch, gaining early access to it before everyone else gets to sign up. So what is The Watch? Basically this is a library of all the Assassin's Creed info you could possibly want as well as a plethora of social media management tools all based around the Assassin's Creed universe.
The Watch provides players with additional information regarding Assassin's Creed IV's story, characters, and thematic influences as well as social media tools allowing you to communicate with other fans of the series and keep up to speed with the latest news regarding not only Assassin's Creed IV but the entire franchise as well.
If you have pre-ordered the upcoming Assassin's Creed Saga, you can sign up over on The Watch's official website on uPlay right now as long as you have your pre-order code on hand. The rest of the world will have to wait until the service officially launches.
