Although Rage 2 is only a few days away (releasing May 14, 2019), we thought we’d put together a Rage 2 pre-order guide anyway. Read on to learn everything about the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition, the Rage 2 Collector’s Edition, and the Rage 2 Standard Edition. We’ll go through all the content you will get in each edition below. Don’t get in a rage about what version to buy, we’re here to help.
Rage 2 Standard Edition
Pre-ordering the Rage 2 Standard Edition will of course bag you a copy of the base game on whatever platform you prefer (PS4, Xbox One, or PC). There are, meanwhile, plenty of bonuses you can grab for pre-ordering the Standard Edition of the game. Pre-ordering the Standard Edition of the game from the official Bethesda website on whatever platform you choose will net you with the following bonuses:
- Cult of the Death God: A bonus mission in which Walker is sent on a wild ride to take down a cult of mutants who worship Nicholas Raine (fans may remember him from the original Rage)
- Mutant Monster Truck Skin: A pre-order exclusive monster truck skin. Time to drive in style
- Nicholas Raine Armor: Step out into the world of Rage 2 dressed in the Arkist armor made famous by Nicholas Raine
- Settler Pistol: Bring the Raine pain with his hand cannon
What’s included in the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition?
If you opt for the more expensive Rage 2 Deluxe Edition, you will get the game and all the bonus pre-order content of the Standard Edition, plus much more. It’s called Deluxe for a reason. Remember, though, that the Mutant Monster Truck Skin, Nicholas Raine Armor, Settler Pistol, and Cult of the Death God mission are pre-order bonuses only.
The Rage 2 Deluxe Edition bonus content is as follows:
- All content from the Standard Edition pre-order
- Battle Standard: A bonus Battle Standard flag to fly in-game
- DOOM BFG: You will get access to the ultra-powerful DOOM BFG to use in Rage 2
- Progress Booster: Boost your Rage 2 progress with the Progress Booster thanks to the Deluxe Edition
- Rise of the Ghosts Expansion: Purchasing the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition will bag you everything here and a piece of upcoming DLC. The Rise of the Ghosts Expansion DLC will release by the Summer of 2019
- Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes: You’ll also get hold of the Wasteland Wizard Cheat Codes when you buy the Deluxe Edition of Rage 2. These will help you out for sure
Rage 2 Collector’s Edition
If you want the most complete edition of Rage 2, however, you will need to buy the Rage 2 Collector’s Edition. Of course, this will be the most expensive version of the lot. This does mean, though, that it comes with by far the most content of them all. Purchasing the Rage 2 Collector’s Edition of Rage 2, you will get hold of all the content in the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition and much more, including physical bonuses.
The Rage 2 Collector’s Edition content you will get hold of is as follows:
- All of the Rage 2 Standard and Deluxe Edition content
- Collector’s Poster: A spiffy Rage 2 poster that you can put on your wall just to show everyone how much you love Rage 2
- Ruckus the Crusher Talking Head: You will get your very own mutant head trophy. With a size of 12″ x 7″ x 5″ it sure will look impressive on your shelf, wall, or wherever you want to place it
- Steelbook: You’ll also get a Rage 2 Steelbook to keep your game in, exclusive to the Collector’s Edition of the game
There’s a lot of bonus content you can get in any of the Rage 2 pre-order editions, but the Rage 2 Collector’s Edition certainly offers the most of the lot.
Which Rage 2 edition comes with BFG 9000?
While there is plenty of bonus content you can get hold of with the three Rage 2 Editions, perhaps the BFG 9000 is the bonus people will be after the most. Thankfully, there are two editions of the game in which you will be able to grab the BFG 9000 as a bonus weapon. You will get hold of the BFG in both the Rage 2 Deluxe Edition and the Rage 2 Collector’s Edition.
The BFG will be great for dishing out the pain to everyone in the Wasteland. Grab it in the Deluxe and Collector’s Editions of the game along with everything else we’ve gone through above.
