Death Stranding Pre-Order Bonuses | What do I get if I pre-order?

You get some bonus goodies for pre-ordering Death Stranding. These are available with any edition of the game, so even if you pre-order the standard version only you’ll get the in-game items, theme, and avatar.

If you pre-order Death Stranding you get:

  • PS4 dynamic theme
  • PSN Chibi Ludens avatar
  • Gold Sam Sunglasses
  • Gold Armor Plate
  • Gold Hat
  • Gold Speed Skeleton

All these in-game items, including the ones that come with the special, digital deluxe, and collector’s editions of the game, must be earned. So, presumably, they’re mostly for cosmetic effect as opposed to giving you an overpowered character at the start of the game.
