In good news for all of you MMORPG fans out there, it looks like Rift is getting some sweet preorder and collector’s edition bonuses, most of which actually seem fairly on the level with keeping it fair between retailers. This is one of the few times I’ve seen one that wasn’t totally leaning towards one retailer, which is great. They’re all mostly aesthetic as well, so those who preorder won’t mess around with the balancing.

Collector’s Edition:

  • Ancient Tartagon Mount (pictured above)
  • Collector’s Satchel (increases primary backpack to 24 slots)
  • Bogling Wastrel (exclusive pet)

Retailer preorder bonuses (all are runes that give 3 endurance and boost resistance against their individual elements):

  • Steam: Blazing Sourcestone Rune (+10 fire resist, gives you flaming weapons)
  • Amazon: Crystalline Sourcestone Rune (+10 earth resist, gives you crystal weapons)
  • Best Buy: Frozen Sourcestone Rune (+10 water resistance, gives you ice weapons)
  • Direct2Drive: Pulsing Sourcestone Rune (+10 life resistance; gives you green, glowing weapons)
  • Trion Worlds: Shrouded Sourcestone Rune (+10 death resist; gives you purple, glowing weapons)
  • GameStop: Swirling Sourcestone Rune (+10 air resist, gives you lightning weapons)

And Walmart’s exclusive offer only requires you to purchase the game from them:

  • Shambler Hatchling (exclusive pet)
Rift comes out on February 24th to customers who preorder and March 1st to those who don’t.
