Electronic Arts is certainly no stranger to pre-order bonuses, but apparently getting you to pick up one game for extra stuff isn't enough. Now, if you really want to get as many weird bonus items as possible for your dude in the upcoming Warhammer Online, you'll also need to file a pre-order for Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3.
GameStop is listing the following bonus item for people who go in for EALA's McCarthyist real-time strategy game:
An exclusive in-game item for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be packed with the game - Korssar’s Helm Description: This magical Kislevite helm is imbued with the spirit of the wild North and will magically transform the wearer into a ferocious bear.
So if you buy RA3, and you're playing Warhammer Online, you can make your Warhammer dude turn into a bear. I would just like to go on-record here and say that I am all for games turning you into a bear. Though the whole crossover thing feels a little weird. I guess I'd feel a little weirder about it if we weren't talking about two big releases on the same platform. If I had to go out and buy, say, FaceBreaker or something to get a strap-on Kim Kardashian Ass of Great Armoring, I'd probably be a little more up in arms about it.
Actually, if the characters in Warhammer had big fake asses, that'd make that game way awesome. Forget I said anything.
