What an incredibly wacky concept.

Cyberpunk 2077 won't have any pre-order bonuses. A user over on Reddit asked the game's official Twitter account if there would be any incentives, and the developer's reply is rather refreshing: "We don't do that. Every person that buys the game gets exactly the same in-game content, no matter if they buy it in pre-orders, on release date, or two years later."

At this point CD Projekt Red has a reputation for being consumer friendly, and this kind of stance is only going to enhance that. With The Witcher 3, for example, standard retail copies of the game came with a number of extras, and post-launch, the title received a number of totally free content updates that included entirely new quests. Even the game's outstanding expansions were priced way lower than many expected.

Of course, it should be noted that Cyberpunk 2077 does have an expensive collector's edition, but that also doesn't include any in-game bonuses as far as we're aware.

Do you appreciate CD Projekt Red's stance on pre-order content? Give a thumbs up in the comments section below.

Daw. Because I wasn't already going to pre-order the game anyway. CDPR really are a rare breed.

"So what do I get for pre-ordering your game?"

"You get a game. A really good game."

That really should have been enough...

It's cool Mike Pondsmith effectively told all these leftist wackjobs to get fucked.

He's black, so they're having a really hard time coming up with ways to claim he's a entitled white guy.

-

On a related note, I've been watching a lot of Oz lately, which is the father of modern television. Without it you wouldn't have shows like the Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad.

Part of the reason for this was it's unflinching take on the brutality of prison, including racial divisions. Nazi's, Muslims, black people, Hispanics, corrupt police, homosexuals etc.. all intermingling and conflicting.

To pretend it's not a thing, or shouldn't exist in our media, while it existed in shows like Oz 20 years back that helped the television medium push forward is undermining gaming, thanks to dickheads who've taken the mantle to police it, attempting to hold it back like we're in some shitty 50's sitcom.

Twitter has become a cesspit of left-leaning morons. It's that bad... That Twitter feed is all over the place. Their points are literally all over the show.

No one who knows the company well should be surprised. CDPR has their vision of how things are to be done, and they refuse to deviate from it.

That is why CP2070 is going to be first-person. They decided it must be that way, announced such over a year ago to their dedicated fans, and stood their ground on it not changing this entire time. Not even when a portion of the fanbase raged over it.

This is just another example of it. In-game content will be sold one way. No deviation allowed.

@lundy86_4: I only use Twitter just to keep up latest gaming news and see what developers/publishers say and get some cool memes/gif while I'm at it. Twitter is no stranger to all the BS and it can be funny & pathetic at the same time. I rather deal with Twitter then Facebook.

The best thing they did was include that Thank You note in every copy of Witcher 3 with the promise of 16 small DLC updates.

That was the coolest thing ever. I wish all companies had something thoughtful like that.

If I ever see a game that is not accused of being racist and transphobic, that'd be super weird these days.

Maybe we should go back to anthropomorphic animals for game protagonists, like we had in the Nintendo 64 days?

The actual physical case for this game looks garbage, if it's still "man with gun".

As long as they don't downgrade the PC version like they did with the Witcher 3 it's all good.

And it's coming out on GOG first day, meaning no DRM day-one (which CDPR has always been largely against, and in favour of people being able to play their games without hoops to jump through).

I have no interest in this. But the marketing is brilliant as it seems to have online gamers salivating over it.

They should have given you a poster or something as a bonus like you used to get in the box with games in the good old days.

Maybe even a T-shirt.

I dont see what is so special about this.

Most games I buy have no pre-order bonuses... I mean I guess it is nice that they don't but... meh.

Maybe I have been out of the loop for too long.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition had quite a few goodies. It was also a free update if you already owned the original version.

Stuff like this, including a guide would be pretty standard fair for older CRPG's like DnD Goldbox. Now you don't even get a disk or the full game requiring a download. Yay.

I really hate how the media go along with the line "bonus". It's not a bonus, it's content already made, segmented and ransomed to be re-sold.

@uninspiredcup: Awesome, a list of games I couldn't care less for. Many of whom I already forgot even existed. I really am out of the loop.

The only game I bought as of late that had pre-order bonuses was FFXIV: Shadowbringers.

Everything else, gave everything out of the box.

You asked a question and got an answer, they overwhelmingly do it.

Getting sarcy about it doesn't change the answer, wither you like or dislike X games or have super special taste above a normal mortal is irrelevant.

You are not wrong that some devs are doing it.

I am just saying why this being anything special flew right above my head.
