Created by Chris Reed on
From free in-game bonuses to physical items and limited special editions, there are plenty of reasons to pre-order a game. And with all the hyped-up games to look forward to in 2018 and 2019, it can be tough to stop yourself from locking down your copy long before release. There's nothing wrong with that, but if you're going to place a pre-order, you'll want to come prepared.
Game releases nowadays can be complicated things, with numerous editions and pre-order bonuses, all offering different sets of goodies to anyone who buys. Retailers sometimes even have exclusive bonuses, so where you place your pre-order can be just as important as which edition you pick. It's a heap of information, all spread out across the internet. If only there were somewhere you could go to get all the information you need in one place.
Turns out there is, and you've found it. We've whipped up guides for all the biggest games you can pre-order now, most of which will be coming out in 2018 or 2019. These guides have all the information about pre-order bonuses you stand to receive, what comes in each special edition of the game, and how much everything costs across different retailers. With all of the info in one place, you can make an educated buying decision and pre-order the right edition for you, at the best price available.
A few cautionary notes before you whip out that credit card. When it comes to pre-orders, some things are subject to change. Games get delayed all the time, and sometimes advertised features don't make it into the final game. It's also wise to look at the fine print before pre-ordering a game. Some retailers require you to put down a bit of money up front, while others require full payment at the time of pre-order and don't offer refunds. Others, like Amazon, let you lock in your pre-order without putting any money down, and let you cancel at any time.
With that out of the way, let's dive into pre-order guides for some of the biggest games releasing soon.
