Question about Ubishop preorder and credit card charge

Does ubishop charge your credit card as soon as you make the preorder or when the game is released and they send you the code?

Yea it's a pre-purchase so you get charged the full amount when you purchase it. Then Ubisoft will email you a Steam key since the game does not use uPlay.

Is this true? I pre-ordered through Ubisoft and the email they sent me told me I need to download UPlay to have access to the game. No Steam code. Will they e-mail me a code prior to release?

I'm going to be pissed if I need to use Uplay because I ordered through their website to get the extra DLC pack.

I thought it was 100% confirmed Steam only. I would have just used Steam, but I wanted the superhero skin.

^ GameStop also has the super hero skins available as a preorder.

I looked at Ubi's store and I'm thinking that if you buy from Ubi direct, you have to use uPlay. But if you buy it anywhere else, you use Steam.

Since there's no multiplayer, that could be why there's 2 different platforms from which to play this game.

Nowhere on the Ubi store page did the game list Steamworks or if you had to use Steam like other non-Ubi titles they sell that use Steam.
