Due to the early release of Assassin's Creed Origins in some areas, we expect the flocking of new contributors to the wikia. This will, most likely, result in spoilers on our articles, regardless of our rules and guidelines on the matter. To combat this as best we can, I have temporarily made it so that users must be loggen in to edit articles. This should, hopefully, make it easier to keep the wikia a spoiler-free(-ish) environment.
This measure will only be in effect until the official release of Origins, at which point I will undo it, and everyone will be able to edit the wikia to their heart's desire again. I apologize for any inconvenience this might pose for some of you, and we hope you understand our decision for choosing this course of action!
It has happened before with other Assassin's Creed titles. What bothers me at this point is that Ubisoft hasn't really managed to take legal action against retailers that have broken release dates in precedents such as these.
If I was to make a suggestion, I'd honestly prefer the restriction last for a day or so after release, in order to allow registered users a chance to make progress with their game and have a better handle on managing the flood of new information instead of having cases where people are spoiled just from people contributing to the Wiki from the very outset.
