Dishonored's US Pre-Order Bonuses Unmasked

Bethesda has lifted the lid on the US pre-order bonuses for Dishonored, which offer a whole host of physical goodies and DLC to give you an extra assassinating edge during your sneaky killing spree through the dark streets and back alleys of Dunwall.

GameStop and Best Buy each have a physical item on offer - a deck of Tarot cards and a Whale Oil USB lamp respectively - while all four retailers have a DLC pack with various in-game items and upgrades for Corvo. Here's the deets:

  • GameStop – Arcane Assassin Downloadable Upgrade Pack & Dishonored Tarot cards
  • Best Buy – Shadow Rat Downloadable Upgrade Pack & Whale Oil USB Lamp
  • Amazon – Backstreet Butcher Downloadable Upgrade Pack
  • Walmart – Acrobatic Killer Downloadable Upgrade Pack
  • Target – Smart Phone Dishonored Decal

Bethesda is promising pre-order bonuses for other territories later on down the line in the run up to the game's launch. You can check out some images relating to the US pre-order incentives over on the Bethesda Blog. Dishonored is out on October 9th in North America and October 12th in Europe. Here's the E3 trailer again:

Or you can just wait another 8 months and get them all bundled into a GOTY edition, probably with a bunch of other DLC, just like Arkham City

Great idea, however I think.

But like #1, you can buy them all in one, after at least a half month.

#4,

There are a lot of good DLC's.

Like AC Brotherhood DLC, or the Infamous 2: Festival of Blood DLC.

But its every ones opinion if its a good DLC or not.

@6 Yes. Undead Nightmare does happen to factually be the best DLC ever.

@6 Undead Nightmare is awesome. Then again, it's Rockstar we're talking about.

@4 Fallout3's DLCs are fantastic, too. If you played FO3 or want to give it a try, you have to get its DLC. They're pretty cheap now, by the way.

And Fallout: New Vegas' DLCs are even better than Fallout 3's!

For new owners-look up dlc contents and decide which is best for you

For everyone else, there is complete editions, but those will be ages away ;)

None of the weapons packs ever have a real effect on the gameplay. People blow these "bonuses" way out of proportion. Besides its a new IP if everyone waits for a goty edition there won't be one because the game will have bombed.

I hate this retailer-specific crap. Just makes me feel like there's a lot of stuff I'm NOT getting.

Yeah I gotta go with you on this. I found the DLC for New Vegas goes on forever (I'm on Old World Blues) where as Mothership Zeta for Fallout 3 was really short for DLC (I completed it in a day)

Best pre order bonus I could ever hope for is a finished properly tested game, but I guess that's asking too much these days isn't it

the game looks good. and i wouldnt mind getting the tarot cards. but then again. if the game ends up being like skyrim all over again... then whats the point.. sigh... still at the end of the day i might just buy it to see how good the story is . from the looks of things. it looks a bit like a combination of steampunk, and fallout

Well if there is no GOTY and it turns out shit then surely not pre-ordering it for some small bonus pack will have been an even better idea than you thought?

This game is shaping up rather nicely. Lets hope it does not go the way of RAGE
