Dishonored's pre-order bonuses collected in the Void Walker's Arsenal DLC, hitting 14th May

Dishonored

Pre-order bonuses are not my cup of tea - in addition to punishing players for not buying from a particular store, they're often so overpowered that they spoil the game. Having said that, Dishonored's various rewards don't seem too imbalanced - and you've probably completed the game by now, anyway. Over six months after the stealthy immersive sim's release, its pre-order gubbins has been collected into one ultro-bundle entitled Void Walker's Arsenal DLC (I always thought Corvo was more of a Wolverhampton Wanderers man). The DLC comprises four packs: the Acrobatic Killer Pack, the Arcane Assassin Pack, the Backstreet Butcher Pack, and the Shadow Rat Pack, each one containing a handful of minor upgrades, a book and a bunch of a coins. You can grab it from Steam on May 14th for the princely sum of $3.99.

As revealed on the Bethblog , the rewards can be unlocked in-game from the Hound Pits Pub once purchased (though I'd still recommend not bothering, unless you're really struggling to finish the game on hard). Here's what's lurking inside each pack:
