Why are people already playing and streaming while others have to wait for November 10th?
This is disrespectful to players who pre-ordered six months ago.
Why can't my friends and I play this weekend, as well as streamers, and the game will be released this week.
For whatever reason, streamers are allowed to openly showcase a game that I cannot play.
We don't want to watch these bums play.
We want to play ourselves.
Where does this disrespect for the players who have supported your products for years come from?
We are very disappointed with this move.

Again, it's called marketing.
I also preordered immediately after they opened for that, but I don't expect early acccess for that reason, that was never on the table.
Youtubers/streamer playing and reviewing the game now, is a VERY good thing. People who are still on the fence can get the info needed to decide to buy or not, and can still get preorder rewards if they do.
There is no "disrespect" or anything similar going on here, so calm down.

Yes, fine, it's ok. But this still works if the real Fan, that Pre-Order the Game and KNOW they want play it, also can start playing und have not the Problem for 4 days to stop checking his favorite twitch Streamer, favorite Forum, redit and so on.
We all know how the internet works. Spoilers are on every platform NDA or no NDA...
24h early acces ok, is still not cool but not as hard then 4 Days...

I agree this is disrespectfull and it makes my hype goes down and down. I pre ordered game and guess what? a streamers streaming that game... i dont even know if it is full gameplay or anythink else like demo or limited gameplay. I dont cuz im afraid to check what it was.
If streamer can earlier acces then pre order early access, what is the point of pre order early access. Its just [censored] and prolly i will never pre order any game from ubisoft.
@netspook I can agree with its called marketing and i do understand why they do it, but the ppl who pre ordered should get it at the same time imo and the "beta" should not be 4 day in advance, it should be 1 day
I understand Ubisoft do's this to hype up the game, but this way many of the regular players gets angry because they feel like they are treated like trash...
why only the streamers/YT? why not all?
I know Ubisoft have given these streamers/yt guidelines of what they can stream and dont, but they(streamers/yt) dont care, Ubisoft just go and look at the streamers/yt you have provided EA to the game, look at there vods ect and you'll see that many of them dont care about the guidelines you gave them.
I have to say im really disappointed in Ubisoft when it comes to this, but hey im just a regular gamer, so who the f*** cares?
See you on launch day, since we all cant get the EA!

It's not marketing if someone with a physical copy can play it (edit: up to) 4 days in advance and possibly even stream it, but hey, if you feel better with it.

I pre-ordered the game via Ubisoft Website and when you buy the game on the left panel it say (Ubisoft Store advantages) and there is a row of the advantages that say "Play for the very first"!
now I really want to know what does it mean? what's the advantage for it when streamers can have early access before 4 days from release?
I'm absolutely not gonna watch my favorite streamer playing this game because I want to play it my self or I do lose all the fun!
Give early access 4 days before release is not a good marketing move, it only make other people like me ( actually so much jealous because I can't play the game and those streamers can ) more angry because "We want to play for what we paid and We want all to be treated as the same"
Streamers that make YT content or give tips about the game is really that needed? Isn't Tv or Ads to promote the game just enough?
People can decide to buy or not the game thanks streamers review doesn't make sense to me; just pre-order the game and if you don't like it, you can still request a refund from the web site till 25/11 (on my case).
So I agree that this move is a "disrespect" for the user that have supported Ubisoft for years (3/4 years in my case) and have to wait while some streamers ( and they are NOT "FEW" just take a look at Twitch ) play the game 4 day before the release, not mentioning that some of them not saying names, didn't even pay for the game, they just get game and early access code and stream a go go.
"When streaming wasn't a thing in the past, (I'm talking about the early 1999) every single human was treated at the same" Playstation game out at the same day for every single person in the Earth.
Hope in the future this kind of "move/marketing" will not getting worse, like give "one month" early access for streamers! That would be so mind-blowing!
Not adding more because my English is not even good and hope you get what I wanted to say

Let me correct some of the comments and answer. This is AGAIN called stupid marketing from Ubisoft. First they lure people into buying by saying play first, or subscribe and get early access, but at the end - 0 results.
They uploaded enough materials before for people to decide whether they want to buy it or not. Right now it doesn't make sense. Those who still doubt, can watch different reviews after release date to make a decision.
But letting streamers to stream the full game 3 days prior to release is not a good thing. So basically they spoil entire game prior to release.

I agree that the game is reviewed but the streamers and such should not publish the full gameplqy until game comes out. Also why is people that preordered from shops qre getting the game qnd playing qlready when the digital preorders have to wait bloody joke. I got the ultimate edition and i have to wait till tuesday bloody joke and no response from ubisoft..... Due to the climate and things seems to be delivered early qnd no 3 day early access any more just release it now please....

I'm so sick of this spoiled brat behaviour. We're getting the game 7 days earlier than originally announced. Still you're whining, just because some youtubers got the game 4 days before us.
It that makes you stop preordering games, well - if I said my honest opinions about people like you, I'd probably be perma-banned from these forums.

@netspook How are we spoiled? We are upset that we paid for the game and they are giving it to streamers and maybe even paying them to play. We already bought the game so the advertising they are getting from streamers has no effect on us. Why not let the ones who have preordered play at the same time as the streamers? It wouldn't hurt the game or sales if they let preorders play early if anything its more free advertising.
