Batman Arkham Origins, Assassin’s Creed IV battle it out over pre-orders
It was one of Square Enix’s most popular titles in 2013, and a favorite among the writing staff this year, Tomb Raider leads the sales this week on Amazon for just $19.99. Interested parties can pick up the game on multiple platforms (PS3, Xbox 360) for the discounted price for a limited time. You can buy the digital version for your PC for just $14.99 during this time as well. Another popular title this year was Metro: Last Light, a game that is now priced at $19.99 for the PC edition, the console version (PS3, Xbox 360) is slightly higher at $29.99.
Of course this is just a prelude to the games that will be releasing this fall, many of which come with free DLC or other bonuses if you pre-order. There are two huge AAA titles that will be releasing this coming week. Warner Bros. plans to release the highly anticipated installment to the Batman franchise, ‘Batman Arkham: Origins’ on almost every platform created for gaming, while Ubisoft sets sail with ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’.
Both of these games come in multiple editions, and both include exclusive DLC and a collector’s edition for those that are smart enough to pre-order the game before it is released.
As for Batman Arkham origins, if you pre-order from an authorized retailer like Amazon, you can pick up the Playable Deathstroke DLC (Deathstroke DLC for Xbox 360 and PS3 orders only) plus a $10 Amazon credit. The Assassin’s Creed IV pre-order from Amazon will get you the Hidden Mystery Pack, which includes: the adventurous treasure-hunting mission: Mystery Island , Stede Bonnet’s ship, and outfit and the Amazon-exclusive illustrated digital fable. For $5 more you can upgrade to the Pirate Edition, and pick up the Black Bart Figure. The figure comes with bonus in-game content–the Black Bart Sails–and exclusive digital wallpaper created by Todd McFarlane.
The collector’s edition for these games comes with even more free DLC and physical items, enough to decorate your work-space or desk for the next few months as you chip away at the achievements and trophies that await you in the titles.
