Here at Best Games List, we are big fans of pre-ordering games. We especially like pre-ordering from Amazon. And we especially like it when we can get some sweet bonuses. So what about the Horizon Zero Dawn pre-order bonus Amazon is offering? Does it meet those qualifications? Let’s take a look.
What is Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is a PS4 exclusive action role-playing game developed by the creators of the Killzone franchise–Guerrilla Games. Set in a lush, post-apocalyptic world where machines have taken over, players must explore the clues scattered around the realm to discover the past and its secrets. Players will play as the main protagonist Aloy, who is a skilled hunter. Early reviews are almost universally positive. The game already has an 88 on MetaCritic (as of 2/22/17).
Horizon Zero Dawn Pre-Order Bonus Amazon
Horizon Zero Dawn comes out on February 28, 2017. Pre-orders from Amazon result in this bonus: the Nora Machine-Trapper Pack. According to the Amazon description:
This resource pack includes weapon and armor modifications as well as crafting resources so you are stocked to face any Machine threat.
There is some unfortunate news for Amazon customers, though. If you pre-order the game from GameStop or EB Games, you will also get two additional items:
- Nora’s Lookout Outfit that has enhanced camouflage and an extra modification slot
- Nora’s Longshot Bow, a hunting weapon with improved accuracy and an extra modification slot
Pre-orders of the Collector’s Edition will get this bonus as well as a 9″ statue of protagonist Aloy, an art book, a PS4 theme (not dissimilar from the Nioh pre-order bonus), and two additional outfits and bows.
The Collector’s Edition sure does come with a lot of bonuses. If you compare that to the standard pre-order bonus, it doesn’t sound that exciting. But the bonus could certainly help out during gameplay.
Keep in mind that Amazon Prime members automatically get 20% off game pre-orders. If you’re thinking about getting the game anyway, it might be worth it at this rate.
