In addition, all pre-orders, no matter what version you pre-order, whether it’s the Collectors Edition, Special Edition or standard Retail Edition, you’ll get an extra in-game vehicle in the form of the ‘Atomic Blimp.’

Personally, I’ve never cared for in-game bonuses and to be honest, I see them as nothing more than a rip-off. Still, there are those who will want every bit of content as soon as possible, so this is catering for those people. If you are one of those people, be prepared to pay up to $149.99, depending on which edition you want to buy.
