Aliens: Dark Descent arrives this June, putting you in charge of a group of marines who go up against the Xenomorphs. And if you’re looking forward to this real-time strategy game, you can preorder it right now. If you are wondering what the preorder bonuses for Aliens: Dark Descent are, here is the full answer.
All the Preorder Bonuses for Aliens: Dark Descent
Aliens: Dark Descent is launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC. The PC version is digital-only, as has become the norm, but all the other formats are getting a physical release.
There is, however, only one preorder bonus: the Lethe Recon Pack. This has been confirmed as being available with digital preorders, though we’d expect it to also come with physical preorders.
The Lethe Recon Pack contains a Black Camo Armor Set for all your marines and an in-game pet, a ginger cat who looks a little like Jonesy, Ripley’s cat in Alien and Aliens. But as far as preorders and editions go, that’s it.
There are no store-exclusive preorders, and there are only two editions, physical and digital. We’re certainly very surprised that there’s no Aliens: Dark Descent collector’s edition. Aliens: Colonial Marines was not a good game, but we’ve still got fond memories of the rather cool Power Loader vs. Xenomorph statue you could buy it with.
So, the only preorder bonus for Aliens: Dark Descent, which releases June 20, 2023, is the cosmetic Lethe Recon Pack.
