Want more variety in your AAA-game special editions? Of course you do. In a press release today, Ubisoft announced a new Limited Preorder Edition of Far Cry 2 exclusive to GameStop stores. This isn't the Limited Edition we reported on Friday; instead it's regularly priced and only available for pre-ordering at GameStop. The Preorder Edition comes packed with six bonus missions promising about three extra hours of gameplay, a fold-out map, and exclusive packaging. We have no word on whether this new packaging is the same wooden box promised with the other LE set.

In the same press release, the company reconfirmed the game's previously reported October 21 release date, so you'll know when to order by. So which is more important to you: a t-shirt, art book, and DVD, or three hours of bonus missions? Or if you preorder the Limited Edition, do you get both the Limited Edition and Preorder Edition contents? What's the end result of all of this special edition mixing and matching? Our heads just exploded.

This must be some kind of ****ing joke or something, Holding back part of a game in the retail version wouldn't make any sense.

Hmmm... "6 unlockable missions"... This tells me these will be downloads everyone has access to, but if yoiu preorder through Gamestop you get them for free, unless it says "exclusive" somewhere... I heard that for packaging, not the extra missions. They probably won't even be available on day one, and they probably will be completely redundant. That said, I'll go for... 'cause why not?

A number of games have done this recently. My copy of Civilization Revolution came with an exclusive code to get the first DLC pack for free, which still hasn't even been released. I beliebe Soul Calibur 4 did something similar with outfits.

If its available to anyone for any reason, worst case scenario is the crackers make it available to everyone.

Nothing to fret over for us but I would say it seems to almost be an invite to have the game pirated.

Far Cry 2 is going to be great. Those who have seen it/played it can testify to this. :D I plan on buying the limited edition.

I wonder if they made an extra 3 hours of gameplay for gamestop or if they cut out 3 hours of gameplay from the original game to make extra cash.

It's called an expansion pack only it's available at the games release through this limited time offer.

Next up....Yeah, I hear the download version gets guns that hold 50% more ammo than the regular game.

Because its on consoles and we all know that anything on consoles aswell is utter crap!

As for what I think, I think the missions will be on the retail disc but you will get a code from gamestop that will unlock them. So basically if you don't buy it from gamestop you are being screwed from experiance the whole game. Atleast thats what I am under the impression from seeing the commercial that said "reserve now and unlock 6 new missions".

Just wait till a week after the game is released and it'll be bundled with a $30 graphics card along with 17 other Ubisoft games and all add ons.

I'm sure that is what a lot of people think, which is sad. BioShock was on consoles too.

Apparently this version doesn't cost any more than the others. And even if you didn't pre-order, if the unlockables come in the form of a bonus code, someone who did order this version will post the code online within 2 minutes of turning on his computer.
