The Game Crazy bonus is a currency multiplyer for online play, which will allow players to accumulate the in-game currency faster than other players, giving them easier access to abilities and upgrades. The pre-order at Amazon.com provides the player with a map that should make it easier for users to find hidden treasures in the game. Finally, BestBuy’s pre-order bonus is access to golden Berattas and AK47s in multiplayer matches, which are otherwise not available to players.
