Isn't that against policy for you?
You talking to me? If so, umm what? Pre-ordering? I don't particularly like it, especially if in this case the first people to do so don't get all the goodies(the unlocks are a slimy idea...), or even worse if it's the 'founders' crap that F2P games are doing now, but I'm not 100% opposed to it, no.

I do think this trend is a bit bad for games in the long run because it makes people feel like if they don't pre-order then they may as well just skip it entirely.
