UK Pre-Order Bonuses For Dishonored Revealed

If you’ve been gaming at all within the past 5 years then you know that each time a game releases there are always a handful of bonuses you can receive for putting your money down and pre-ordering the game. Whether it be a special in-game costume, new weapons, extra levels, more characters, or statues and art books, pre-order bonuses serve to cater to collectors everywhere. Upcoming first-person title Dishonored won’t be any different, and its pre-order bonuses have finally been detailed for us. Now these bonuses have been announced for the UK version of the game, and will be coming to GAME and GameStation stores as well as Tesco, ShopTo, and Amazon. Here’s what each distributor will be offering:

GAME and GameStation: Special Edition – Dishonored branded 72 tarot card deck with instructions to play the ‘Game of Nancy’ & the Arcane Assassin Downloadable Upgrade Pack, which includes:

  • VOID CHANNEL: Powers duration and damage bonus {exclusive}.

  • GUTTER FEAST: White rat consumption for mana {exclusive}.
  • WHALE IN-GAME STATUE: Unlocks one additional slot for bone charm bonuses {start with an extra slot earlier on}.

These are all pretty sweet bonuses, and we’re looking to Bethesda to shine some light on what we here in the states can expect. While I like the vast array of goodies, it somewhat bothers me when companies divide up the bonuses between distributors. It forces players to pick and choose where they get their copy from, and if they want everything they would literally have to pre-order and pick up a copy of the game from each place. Still, those Tarot cards look pretty awesome.
