  1. Bethesda, you do realise Pre-order bonuses are Universally detested by most gamers. Please don’t get into the same boat as EA, as that boat is sinking.

  2. What is the reason for having different pre-order bonuses for different shops? Making gamers wait for the “complete edition” which is released a year later? Because I might just do that.

    • If I am correct, the buffs you get from these packs you can get anyway within the game through chance. The packs only guarantee getting your fav ones at the start of the game.

      The only thing that the game does not have really is the gold, statue thing (I think, not sure) and the tarot cards.

  3. Bethesda my dear. ZeniMax is leading all to a road accident (in the consumer taste) no plastic surgery to help your faces later.

    For those who are believing in Gabe Valve Prophet, who now intends to use the opensource as spy goat.. do not fall into this, is another $who$ has only one thing in mind (everyone should play using my table of values via my store).

    We are entering a transition to the macabre.

  4. The DLC probably appears on August for the PC, in the first week. I dont know for the PS3, they have things to do with Sony for send the pack, something before (costs, tests, fixes).

    And the new update dont have corrections for the problems presentes in the DLC. I think in the first week of august, we get more explanations.

  5. If this is anything like the “pre order bonuses” for RAGE, or the “pre order bonuses” for Fallout: New Vegas, I’m not using them.

    I’ll get the game where I want and throw out the code. These things don’t make the game better, they just make it unbalanced.

  6. This really dumb. I too will not pay full price now. I have been suckered too many times and this is an obvious set up.

    $60 for Rage … never again.

    • it is evident that dishonored is a small game and tight, with this whole thing of incredible abilities, the action is centered in small spaces with small waves of soldiers. it is clear that Bethesda is trying to selling fast, earn as much as possible. Like Rage, was mediocre, big and empty, with bugs.. but before, the exageration about the “the fathers of” and launch another lame product.

      Seriously, ZeniMax / Bethesda are doing what they need to do, to selling their bombs .. with level limited design, endless glitches and other headaches. The most dark and lazy game of all times, reappeared as “BFG”, i have no doubt Doom 4 is the next bomb for sure!

      I hope that consumers look beyond the events, beyond this overflow of nonsense, that the media uses to steer the sale of so much fast food, with almost free gifts.

      dawnguard? dude this dlc is broken as hell.

    • Thanks for sharing your feedback

      It’s worth noting these pre-order items were created specifically for retail pre-order. Nothing was taken out of the original game, and these are entirely optional like any other add-on content.

      • This isn’t about “content taken out of the game”. Nor is it about being “optional” or a “complete game with a little bonus”.

        It’s about caring for retailers instead of customers.

      • If they weren’t taken out of the game, then they don’t belong in the game to begin with. When you’re giving a player a bonus of money at the start of the game, either the player was supposed to have that money and it will be unbalanced without it, or the player isn’t supposed to have that money and it will be unbalanced with it.

        There shouldn’t be so many variables on a new game.

  7. I hope Bethesda truly understand the amount of rage and anger simmering in a large proportion of their community at the moment (ie. PC and PS3 users). Greedy EA-style Day 1 DLC like this only serves to excacerbate this, so sort yourselves out.

  8. Please read all the above comments and come to your senses. Just sell 1 collector’s edition and 1 game only edition. And pre-order editions are BS, I can still pick up the Rage Anarchy edition in stores here for like 20 dollars.

    • Bethesda totally Dishonored.

      I’ve been going through a lot of bugs in the DLC, i have a 360, honestly, try relax. Dawnguard right now, will bring more defects for the game. Like my brother say “this damn DLC works like a mod on my PC, in the end broken my game”.

      Come on fanboys! lets go to Quakecon see more lies! screaming how awesome those guys are! we have the best first person shooter RPG, a rocket cientist, yeah!

      This is cool X)

  9. I believe they are updating the DLC, many problems have already been reported during use on the Xbox360.

    I know it’s boring, but I’d rather wait for an updated DLC, than come back here complaining about problems.

  10. Bethesda have totally dishonoured all of their fans, it seems, they no longer deserve the respect of PC players. I wasn’t planning on playing, or buying, this shit, but I might support the pirates anyway.

  11. So if I get it from Gamestop I only get the Tarot cards? Or is this just for Uk?!?! I wanna be in the Uk so bad ;~;
