In what the publisher is announcing as the “first wave” of preorder bonuses, Gamestop, Amazon, and Best Buy will be receiving both digital and physical content for the March 5th release.
For the moment, it looks like the Gamestop preorder deal is the only one lacking any kind of physical bonuses like the comic and art book coming to the Best Buy and Amazon versions of the game respectively. But that could all change over the next couple of months as Square Enix promises to release additional details about what you can get if you decide to reserve Tomb Raider at one of the three retailers. Plus, there’s a Collector’s Edition on the horizon, whose details haven’t yet seen the light of day.
In the meantime, here’s what the retailers are offering for your early monies (from the press release):
