Earlier this morning we alerted you of the fact that a season pass (for DLC) for the upcoming Bioshock Infinite exists, and you can buy it soon. We’ve also just learned of additional pre-order details for the PC version of the game itself, and it’s pretty substantial in its offerings.
Behind Steam, GMG might be one of the most successful retailers in the digital game distribution business, and pre-order deals like this certainly don’t hurt their popularity in that regard.
Starting today, if you pre-order Bioshock Infinite for PC, you’ll receive the original Bioshock as well as one game of your choice from this list:
- Spec Ops: The Line
- Civilization V
- Bioshock 2
- The Darkness II
- Mafia II
Both games will be made immediately available upon completion of your pre-order (the full $60 mind you), and the deal is active right now. And if you’ve already pre-ordered (before today), the deal retroactively includes you – just get fresh on the details here.
Pre-orders for the game also include $14 cash back or $15 in GMG credit and the Industrial Revolution Minigame Pack. Sidenote: if you place your pre-order before noon on Monday, February 25, your order will be lowered to only $49.98 (as opposed to $59.99).
On Steam, the pre-order rewards are separated into tiers. Put simply, as the number of pre-orders placed increases, so do the rewards for each buyer. Right now, the first tier of three has been attained, which means that all who pre-order will receive a copy of the original Bioshock.
Here are all the tiers:
- Tier 1: Free copy of Bioshock (can be gifted)
- Tier 2: Bioshock Infinite Team Fortress 2 items
- Vox Diabolus
- The Pounding Father
- Blind Justice
- The Person in the Iron Mask
- The Doe-Boy
- The Sydney Straw Boat
- The Steel Songbird
- Tier 3: Free copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (can be gifted)
You’ll also receive access to the Industrial Revolution Minigame Pack, which includes 500 units of in-game currency, five lock picks and the Industrial Revolution puzzle game. This is not associated with any tier, and is included regardless of tiers reached.
Bioshock Infinite launches on all platforms, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on March 26, 2013.
