Blur Pre-Order Cheats Announced, Box Art Unveiled

Along with unveiling the box art and final logo for Blur, Activision has also announced pre-order offers for the Bizarre Creations-crafted racer at GameStop and GameCrazy and a “Day 1 Purchase Incentive” at Best Buy. And they are just the type of pre-order bonuses I despise.

Pre-ordering with GameStop, for example, nets you an exclusive booster kit unlocking the powerful Ford Bronco for racing in multiplayer play, a Last Man Standing survival multiplayer mode, and double fans for your first 10 multiplayer races (the more fans you have the faster you earn cash to buy upgrades and new cars). So not only do those who pre-order get an early advantage in races against those players who don’t pre-order, they also get an extra mode that should be included in the game to begin with. They are called “incentives” but they sound more like cheats to me.

Below you’ll find complete details on each of the pre-order deals and a gallery of the Blur box art.

– Exclusive Multiplayer Advantage Booster Kit
