Free DLC every week for Pre-orders.

#1 Posted by Mike76x (555 posts) -

Just got back from Gamestop and they said that once you pre-order, you get one free DLC "something" every week until the game comes out.
Guns, equipment, etc.  That's all the info I got.

I have only one reaction if this is true:

DLC guns and equipment would ruin the multiplayer.

Yeah, that's why I'm assuming its just unlocking stuff upfront rather then having to level up. Maybe some cosmetic stuff but anything substantial for multiplayer would trow it off.

There are around 22 weeks until MW3 comes out. So... 22 player skins? Dunno...

Okay, just called to confirm with another Gamestop further away and this info is wrong.
The pre-orders bonuses I was told about are for Battlefield 3 NOT MW3.
 
Sorry.

My Gamestop says I get "extra maps, armor and weapons".

@Jayross: The girl at Gamestop must've been confused, or lying. 
We were talking about MW3 and she was really pushing the pro-order.
I should've confirmed before posting, and now I know.

@Jayross: What the hell?
My local GS says, extra DLC
The one 20 minutes away says you get a poster.
 
Just got off the phone with the Gamestop that's 30 minutes away.
The DLC is not officially confirmed, and according to the manager, employees shouldn't be talking about it.
The poster is a confirmed bonus, the DLC is expected and more info should be released in 4-6 weeks.

@Mike76x You are talking about mw3, right?
#12 Posted by Mike76x (555 posts) -
@Jayross: Yeah, they said MW3 DLC is in response to Battlefield's DLC.

Free DLCs for Pre-Orders is NOT Activision's style.

well that sucks. i would guess different things like avatar, poster. who knows what is coming out because you know people push preorders there.

Why are you asking gamestop employees questions? They don't even know what they have on their own shelves. All this calling stores why don't you just google the information?
 
Secondly MW3 will have a Premium monthly service with perks, so this is the least of your worries.

They're lying and just want to meet their pre-order quota.
