BFG a Premium Item in RAGE 2

In a post on Reddit, a Bethesda Softworks community manager confirms that the BFG will launch as a premium item in RAGE 2, and at first will only be available in the special editions of the first-person shooter sequel (thanks DSOGaming). Word is:

Hey folks, I wanted to issue a correction about the BFG: at launch, the BFG will only be available as a premium item in the Deluxe and Collector's Editions.

Bought three last year 40% off, no regrets Mavis makes a mean as omelet.

Weren't they a little dry though? That must be some pretty expensive maintenance in the long run when you have to buy lube for three.

Well, I was looking forward to Rage 2. I liked the first game. However, I do not support games that are pay to win or anything like that. If they are going to require "premiums" be paid for weapons, they will be NOT be receiving money from me. Shame.

I do not pay for pre-orders, early-access or any other bullshit that makes these things progress to the state of gaming we have today...where you can't even buy a complete game for 60 bucks. [EA Anthem]

Same here, already got my refund back. I was really looking forward to this game too. but Fuck Bethesda, I know the gum was locked behind those two version, but it was also said that the gun could be unlocked later in the game I was fine with that.

Up until that Reddit post that killed off the hope that it would be. So yea, fuck Bethesda, I refunded the game.

This is just downright greed on their behalf.

The BFG is such an iconic weapon and they know it, so they decide to hold it for ransom against a higher priced pack.

Fuck that.

The BFG isn't even a weapon from Rage, it's a bonus weapon from DOOM. More nonsense for people to get outraged about.

Yeah, other games do this, too - put in an overpowered weapon that doesn't belong and frankly ruins the difficulty curve as a pre-order bonus. The weapon always sounds cool but never really ends up being fun, as it's non-essential and just there to be something people spend up for. It's not balanced, often doesn't fit the world or lore, etc. Often it's just a reskin of another weapon, without even tweaks.

I pre-ordered this a couple of days ago from Greenman all the extra content was spelled out so I guess this public announcement is for those that can't read.
Deluxe edition is the only way to go, 20% off when I ordered.

Eh, the BFG is usually good for a laugh, but not much fun after that, and they usually give it very, very limited ammo. It isn't so much a gameplay element as it is a brief gimmick.

IE - no great loss.

Not that I was all that excited anyway. Rage 1 was a slog.

It's a single player game. How is this pay to win?

I wasn't really planning on buying this game at launch and this confirms that. Better to wait a few months and get this for half price. Hopefully the BFG and everything else locked out at launch will be unlocked by then.
