Is there a point to pre-ordering the digital version?

6 replies 106 views Edited Jun 1, 2013

I'm going to get this digitally and noticed that there was an option to pre-order it. From what I've read there aren't any bonuses that come with doing that. I imagine that people who pre-ordered will get to download the game at the exact same time that someone who just decides to buy it on midnight on July 14. If that is the case, what's the point of pre-ordering?

you get 1 of 2 packs with the download and it costs same price as retail , the bonus is you get it @ midnight which is decent , its more of a conveniance for people who have no local method of getting the game or live in countrys witch struggle to distribute games (like brazil)

Exactly. I'm a Brazilian. And I am very happy that there is a digital pre-order. The Sights and Sounds make it even better.

 

Now I'm wondering how big it is. I barely have 50 GB free. Any estimations, guys?

they said the size is around 26, i wish you can download it before the 14th. But you can't play it yet cause it's locked, till the game is released on the 14th.
