With a release date
announced and a new trailer & screenshots
released, it's only fitting that Capcom announces the pre-order bonuses that will be available for their upcoming 4-player co-op title Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Everyone who pre-orders the game will receive an alternate costume for each of the six playable characters. Three different retailers will also be offering two bonus weapons exclusive to their pre-order.Gamestop
pre-orders will receive an Anti-Material Rifle and a Combat Shotgun.Best Buy
pre-orders will receive a Perforator and a Combat SMGAmazon
pre-orders will receive a Machine Pistol and a Cowboy shotgun.
Capcom is also going to be offering a Special Edition of the game which will include multiple codes and collectables.
The Special edition will contain the game, two embroidered patches (Spec Ops Field Unit & Umbrella Security) a Steelbook containing exclusive art work, the six alternate costume skins and all eight bonus weapons. Considering I only mentioned six when talking about the retailer pre-orders, we can only assume that there are two exclusive to the special edition; no details on what those other two weapons are though. You can get all of that for $69.99!
