Pre-Order Perks for Bioshock Infinite
by Imayen Etim
BioShock Infinite is up for pre-order on Steam, and they're offering some pretty nifty rewards...if enough people pre-order, that is.
Always a catch. Silly mortals -- when will you learn?
The bonuses are tiered, so as more people buy in advance, various rewards unlock for everyone.
The basic offer includes three pieces of gear, 500 bonus in-game currency, five lockpicks, and the Industrial Revolution puzzle game.
The first reward tier has already been unlocked. All who pre-order have access to a free copy of the original BioShock. If you already have it, it isn't worthless -- you can gift it!
The second tier is only 18 percent unlocked at the time of writing, and consists of BioShock Infinite-themed TF2 hats.
The final tier will unlock a free copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Amazon is also getting in on the rewards game. Pre-order the PC download there and get $30 in credit toward titles by 2K Games.
BioShock Infinite is sitting at $59.99 and will hit shelves (and Steam!) March 26.Originally Published Feb. 24th 2013
