Call of Duty: Black Ops II Pre-Order Bonuses Come in Waves
After months of circling rumors, “leaks” of all kinds, and a variety of hints, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is officially an official thing that’s officially coming out, November 13 if you didn’t hear, that’s official. Along with the official announcement comes a declaration of pre-order bonuses for the game from none other than industry sales leader GameStop.
Instead of the traditional “pre-order product A, get bonus B” approach usually implemented by retailers, GameStop is planning on rewarding those who pre-order earlier with more content. This system will work in what they’re calling pre-order “waves”, where gamers who pre-order at different times will receive certain and varied bonuses, but those who pre-order in the first wave will get ALL four waves of bonuses for no extra charge.
The first wave will consist of a double-sided Black Ops 2 poster, a Prestige token (used to unlock items in-game like double XP), and all of the bonuses yet to be announced in waves two, three and four.
If you decide to wait though, and the pre-ordering phase is already in a later phase, you won’t be able to get those earlier-wave bonuses.
The earlier you preorder, the more free stuff you get. Pretty straightforward.
So if you plan on buying the game that 22-bajillion other people are also likely to buy, you might as well get in early and get a boatload of free stuff.
