Red Faction: Armageddon Pre-order Bonuses

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
THQ has announced the pre-order bonuses for Red Faction: Armageddon, their upcoming sequel to Red Faction: Guerrilla. Unfortunately, the pre-order bonuses vary between retailers. As some retailers are offering different combinations of bonuses, I'm going to list the bonuses first, followed by a list of the retailers and the content that they are offering.

Commando Pack
This pack adds the Commando uniform and two new weapons to your arsenal. Players can "spray an unforgiving stream of destruction" using the Plasma Thrower, or "slice and dice the infestation" using the dual Laser Pistols.

Recon Pack
This pack adds the "clandestine" Recon uniform, programmed specifically for snipers and spies, and two new weapons. Players can immobilize and electrocute clusters of enemies using the Arc Welder, or launch "devastating Nanite-filled projectiles that seek out targets and dissolve them" using the XNG-5000.

This pre-order advert shows the contents of the two packs:

Other retailers are offering codes for a free copy of the upcoming XBLA game Red Faction Battlegrounds. More details about this game can be found here.

Another pre-order bonus is a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt:

The final pre-order bonus is a limited edition Red Faction 24-page illustrated comic book. The comic book "follows Darius Mason as he chases down a gang of murderous bandits in a tale that takes place just before the events of Red Faction: Armageddon." Included in the comic is a mini-strategy guide from Prima Games for use with Red Faction: Armageddon.
