Who loves retail exclusive pre-order bonus content? No one? Well, either way, Tomb Raider will be getting exactly that, and Square Enix has revealed which three will be featuring what pre-order incentives in North America.
GameStop, of course has the in-game stuff, an exclusive "challenge tomb" with new puzzles. It's supposed to be standalone, so we're assuming it's got nothing to do with story or anything with the core game.
Amazon.com and Best Buy have completely different sorts of bonus content. Rather than offer anything really gameplay related, these two retailers are instead offering alternate skins, artwork, and comics. Check it:
Exclusive in-game challenge tomb:
- In this standalone tomb, Lara encounters new environment puzzles
The Final Hours Edition” of Tomb Raider:
- Exclusive 32-page art book created by art director Brian Horton showcasing the art from Tomb Raider
- Exclusive “Hunter Skin” that grants Lara action-movie-style natural camouflage
- The Final Hours of Tomb Raider – ‘Director’s Cut’ Kindle Fire Edition: A behind-the-scenes feature documenting the highs and lows of Crystal Dynamics’ development process for the new game
Exclusive Tomb Raider: The Beginnings Comic Book and Aviatrix Skin:
- A 48 page, six-part graphic novel written by Rhianna Pratchett with cover art by Tomb Raider art director Brian Horton.
- Comic tells the story of how the voyage of the Endurance came to be
- Aviatrix Skin: an exclusive 1930s adventurer outfit for Lara Croft with bomber jacket
Tomb Raider will be out next year, come March.
