Gamers will get very different pre-order bonuses depending on where they reserve their copy of Tomb Raider. Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop are all offering distinct sets of freebies to their customers.
GameStop pre-orders will get a new Challenge Tomb. This tomb is said to test players' platforming and puzzle skills. It's a standalone experience so presumably you access it from the game's main menu.
Amazon's bonus DLC is limited to a "Hunter Skin" that covers Lara in natural camouflage (i.e. mud). However, the online retailers is also offering a 32-page art book assembled by TR art director Brian Horton. Furthermore, you'll get a mobile app called "The Final Hours of Tomb Raider" that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the game.
Best Buy is also offering a character skin. The Aviatrix Skin will let Lara look like a 1930's adventurer. Also included in this pre-order bundle is a graphic novel called Tomb Raider: The Beginning. This 48-page hardcover story, penned by the game's lead writer Rhianna Pratchett, explains the back-story behind Lara's first voyage.
The pictures for each pre-order bundle mention three stages of extras. Apparently these retailers have even more freebies to reveal. Announcements will occur on December 18th and in January.
