So that's ALL of the packs for 320 points? Or PER pack? Article doesn't make it explicitly clear, and I'm hungover.

@ #3

I'll second that hangover. I had to read the title of the article about four times before it made sense to me, it doesn't even seem like a proper sentence if you're unfamiliar with the game, haha. It sounds almost Shakespearian.

Also, I am offended by the term "pre-order people." It makes them sound more eager than I would like. Let's clean it up, maybe call them early birds.

This is a huge boon. Optional, but available.

Wow. The post launch support of this game is remarkable. Sure, these are all preorder incentives. But the fact that they're releasing them in a bundle for such a reasonable price is definitely commendable. Can't wait to see what the next expansion has in store. Dishonored is fantastic. And more content is always welcome.

@3 They will all be available for 320 MS Points. In fact, the article states that in the last paragraph.

I unfortunately still have yet to complete this game, but everytime I hear some news about this game, I'm only more tempted than before to come back.

this "Quick Dodge" should include with original game if they contain some special animation like in The Matrix or something.

If I hadn't already played this game inside and out 4 times I'd be all over this... :(

Maybe for a fresh 5th run before the last Daud DLC later....

I wish more games would follow Dishonored's lead making the DLC be reasonably priced.

I can't wait for the next story DLC, The Knife of Dunwall was excellent.

I paid large sums to have every preorder pack Day 1. I'm glad this is available for the people who weren't crazy like me, particularly for the books as they add greatly to the lore. I asked if they could be put into the game D1 but this is part of why they didn't I guess.

320 MSP is extremely reasonable though. I have a theory as to how far these bonuses extend also. When all four are together, you get 2,000 coins at the Hound Pits. When I first booted up The Knife of Dunwall, before the first mission, there's a purchase screen for Daud to get equipment and stuff. He had 2,000 coins in my game.

Does he start with that for everyone? If not, the VWA extends into the DLC too. I think that's a good deal.

@7 That still doesnt make it clear...

Will they all be available for 320msp each? Or will they all be available as apart of a single pack at 320msp

This looks awesome! Just finished Knife of Dunwall about a week ago, and more campaign sounds good to me. Dishonored is such an incredible game, will definitely be getting this.

@15 I've re-read it now. Sounds like all those packs together form the Void Walkers Arsenal, which you buy for 320 points. So one purchase gets you all of the bonuses.

I have dishonored, but barely played it. Will these extras make it easier?

@15 How is this not clear:
These packs will all be available together as the Dishonored: Void Walker's Arsenal when it launches on May 14th for 320 Microsoft Points.
Pay attention to the word together...

Sounds like a good bundle, but I still long for the day when all developers treat pre-order bonuses the way Tekken Tag 2 did and just give them to everyone for free after a few months.

Seriously, you don't pay any additional fees when pre-ordering, but you get additional content. Why should everyone else have to pay for the bonuses later? Not everyone can afford to get a game at full price, so pre-ordering is generally out of the question for them. And then they have to pay more for content that others got for free. It's like a punishment for being poorer.

Yeah, I know, a lil' rant, but I just don't get it!

Just finished my stealth/no kill/low chaos playthrough tonight, looks like I'll be waiting a few days to do my high chaos run.
