Square Enix has announced two Tomb Raider special editions, as well as a range of pre-order bonuses for Lara's upcoming adventure.

The Survival Edition includes a copy of the game, plus a mini art book, a double sided map of the game's island, and a protective survival pouch. It'll also feature a code entitling you to download a digital copy of the game's soundtrack and a DLC weapon pack.

The Deluxe Collector's Edition, meanwhile, includes all of the above plus a 6" Play Arts Kai Lara Croft figurine and a "unique Endurance crew member's metal survival box".

Prices for either edition have yet to be announced.

In addition to lifting the lid on the special editions, Square Enix also revealed the pre-order bonuses players will be able to snap up by pre-ordering at GAME, Tesco, Amazon and ShopTo, and teased that "further pre-order bonuses for all customers will be announced in coming months".

I'm not a fan of having different game-affecting abilities as pre-order bonuses. Don't like having those as DLC either. This is a trend I'm not too happy about.

Why try and make a tease out of like this - just reveal what they all are already, damnit Square/Eidos.

Hmmm. The pre-order stuff just seems like you get a load of cheats to me.
Not really something that appeals to me. I would rather have a go at the game in its normal release state than have upgrades to make it easier from day 1.
Its a bit like super extended versions of films on DVD. Watch them how the director put them out at the cinema.
