Retailers Incentivize Red Faction: Armageddon Pre-Orders

March 30, 2011Written by Adam Wolfe

Pre-order bonuses have really become the norm this generation, with most games receiving them regardless of popularity. Not looking to buck the trend, THQ has announced the pre-order bonuses for Red Faction: Armageddon.

Since Red Faction is all about destruction, it should be no surprise that two of the store bonuses are centered around the weapons. First up is Best Buy, which is offering the Recon Pack, which includes the Recon uniform, the Arc Welder, and the “XNG-5000, which is a rocket launcher that seeks out enemies and dissolves them. The king of pre-order deals, Gamestop, is also offering its own special bonus called the Commando Pack. This pack includes the Commando uniform, Plasma Thrower, and dual Laser Pistols. The last pre-order deal is at Walmart, and they go in a completely different direction, offering a Red Faction comic book and a mini-strategy guide.

So which way are you more likely to go, the in-game weapons, or the physical media?

Make your decision soon, as Red Faction: Armageddon releases at the end of May.
