Watch Dogs Gets Amazon, Gamestop Preorder Exclusives

Thanks to Ubisoft's aggressive marketing, Watch Dogs has quickly become one of the most anticipated next-gen games. With its release just a few months away, Ubisoft has announced the game's pre-order bonuses for Amazon and GameStop.

Unfortunately, these bonuses, which offer exclusive single player missions, may darken the pre-release hype just a little for gamers who aren't exactly a fan of pre-order bonuses that offer more than a few vanity items.

Those who pre-order the game from Amazon will receive the Signature Shot Pack. This will include a mission that has the player infiltrate and steal from the Black Viceroys, a gang in the game, and a Black Viceroys outfit.

The GameStop pre-order bonus includes the Palace Pack, which will include a mission that involves Pearce, the main character, infiltrating an Internet millionaire's palace and wiping his hard drives before the police show up for a raid. There will also be a boost that allows the player to receive more cash after hacking ATMs and exclusive in-game investigations. A physical poster drawn by artist Alex Ross will also be included.

Watch Dogs will be hitting stores on November 19, 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Windows. It will be available for next-gen sometime later in 2013.

    If this DLC isn't available for purchase by non-pre-order buyers, then this is just awful. You'd have to buy the game twice over if you wanna get all the outfits, loot, and real-world items. Bad move by Ubisoft.

    Ubisoft has used singleplayer missions as preorder bonuses for Assassin's Creed games in the past, so I'm not really suprised. I don't remember if those singleplayer missions were ever made available as paid DLC. I don't see them stopping this trend anytime soon, preorder numbers for each Ubisoft game in a series continue to rise over each previous game in the series.

    Game companies who penalise gamers for not buying their games before the reviews are released, don't deserve to have customers. Also, companies involved in paying to make their rival's products artificially inferior, don't deserve customers either.
