The Best Buy skin looks amazing! I'd rather have the bonus tomb, but I refuse to give any business to the awful shop that is GameStop. Every time I've gone to them, I've had a less than desirable experience. With luck, that tomb will be made available as DLC eventually anyway.

As for me, I don't care about the pre-order incentives right now, I want to hear if Crystal Dynamics is going to do an CE for North America or if we'll get slighted yet again by another developer.

Man, they all look nice! Hopefully each skin and the bonus temple will be made in to future dlc for those who went with one over the other.

well glad I went with Gamestop. Rather have more game to play than an extra costume.

They all look pretty awesome, but I'm waiting for the collector's edition. That might have all the dlc packaged together.

Has anyone seen/heard anything about the second wave of pre-orders that the images suggest get announced today?

EDIT: After a lot of digging, it appears for those of us in the US and Canada can participate in a scavenger hunt, in the form of weekly trivia and photo challenges, for access to up to five DLC traits/upgrades.

The Limited Edition Strategy Guide will come with "Two special in-game digital downloads!" as well:

Tomb Raider Limited Edition Strategy Guide: BradyGames: 9780744014617: Amazon.com: Books

And the Limited Edition Controller comes with a code for a multiplayer character (Scavenger Archer):

According to Amazon and Gamestop, the third pre-order bonus is access to the Shanty Town MP map. So yeah.... looks like they're fragmenting the MP base right from the start. Smart! 8| That also would suggest that future DLC maps will be charged too. Good thing I'm not planing on playing it more than I have to.

Wait so these five traits are DLC only?? Or do they mean they just unlock it early for you. I really want that head shot and silence pistol, and it worries me that it will only be available through DLC.

I am new to the Tomb Raider series as a player... I watched others play the older games and I am rather excited for the new style of game this time. I am (as a player) pickie about my games so I will be pre-ordering this. I will either go to eb games or to walmart which seems to have decent extras as well.

Either way I hope all the extra's are offered as a DLC at some point

When you pre-order this in the Netherlands from 'game mania', you get all the DLC (most DLC is included in the 'Benelux edition', available at all retailers in Benelux countries) and a steelbook case. Just a heads up.

Afaik the Benelux version contains only the explorer bundle and the weapon upgrades from the tomb raider scavenger promo. No additional skins, mutiplayer maps, etc.

I don't suppose it's possible to view the Final Hours app without the Kindle Fire right? Shame, because that's the bundle that interests me the most

I like the Walmart skin the best, them Best Buy. I went with Amazon, so I am hoping that skin actually does something like make you less seen from enemies.

Anyways, for you guys who don't plan on preording but want to take advantage of that Scavenger Hunt. I'd suggest going over to Amazon and place a preorder. You won't get charged till the game is released. Within minutes you'll get a code for the app and after that, you can cancel your preorder from Amazon.

Well, BB and Amazon both come with a physical preorder bonus. I'm sure that GS bonus tomb will be available later on the marketplace. BB offers free shipping or you can just pick it up at the store. I say just make a list of which exclusives are offered from where and then just start crossing the ones you don't prefer.

how much of an advantage do the scavenger hunt traits give you at the start of the game? i finished all 5 levels but really have no idea if its really that much of an advantage or not.

I'm glad I got mine from Amazon, at least I get an art book. Since I have an iPad, the Kindle Book is useless, which sucks by the way. But oh well. I could care less about any multiplayer maps which I think that's the only problem with this game. Knowing any future DLC will be multi-player related. I just don't think it fits. They are trying to be like Uncharted in that area which Naughty Dog did a great job with the multiplayer on the last 2 games.. They should have just left this a pure single player game.. Gone are the days of true single player games. About 99% are either have co-op or multiplayer when the game doesn't need it. Then on top of it they put achievements so if ur a completionist then ur forced to grind it out.

All pre-order content is already available on the marketplace. That is great for people who missed out on something and can now still get it

Also, There goes the resale value for ebayers

I got the code for the EXPLORER PACK:

Nice but I also bought the Outfit-Pack for 240MSP which includes all three skins. I want more!
