In less than a handful of days Gearbox Software’s Battleborn will be released. In fact, pre-load has now officially begun for the game! As of writing, PC gamers are already getting their keys getting on top of a Battleborn discount, to boot. This weekend, you can save up to 20% off on the game while its still in its pre-load/pre-order phase.
If you were already planning on spending $60 for Battleborn here’s a way to justify an upgrade to the Digital Deluxe. At GMG their 20% price breaks have the game down to about $60 – which is like paying full price on the Standard, but for Deluxe. You’ll receive the same pre-order bonus as Steam Store, plus all the upcoming content that will be packed into the Season Pass.
As of writing, pre-ordering at GMG also gets you entered into a drawing contest. Not a big deal per se but just some food for thought. Winners will either get their money refunded to them, or will win Turtle Beach equipment (headset, keyboard, or a mouse pad).
GamesPlanet is a UK-based company, and only shows its price in British Pounds. That said, you can buy worldwide and the Steam key they send out will work just fine. You can even buy with a US credit card or Paypal and after currency conversion, the price comes out to about $60.45 in the US for the Deluxe or $46.50 for the Standard (making the Standard cheaper at GamesPlanet than GMG).
What’s in the Digital Deluxe?
Getting the Digital Deluxe for less than $60 is not only like getting the Season Pass for free, but also the best overall value. Buying the Deluxe at full price on Steam will cost you $74.99, which is $5 cheaper than buying the Standard + Season Pass separately (they would tally $80).
Though it’s the best value, what exactly is in the Digital Deluxe? Most of the benefit will be in the Season Pass, which will include five DLC packs, each of which includes a new co-op operation, skins, and taunts. In addition to the Season Pass, Deluxe does include five other bits of content:
- Taunts for Oscar Mike, Miko, Caldarius, Phoebe, and Orendi
- “Cyber” character skin for Oscar Mike, Miko, Caldarius, Phoebe, and Orendi
- 3 Legendary Gear packs
- Golden pedestal during character select
- Golden Battleborn logo on title screen
