Pre-order bonuses have become a major piece of modern gaming. Retailers of all kinds are frequently offering up bonus content for those that choose to reserve a select game at one of their stores. So, it’s no surprise that the upcoming The Talos Principle: Deluxe Edition will have a reservation bonus available through Best Buy.
Rather than the traditional bonus content, though, gamers can instead save a few bucks by choosing to go through Best Buy for their mind-bending puzzle action. For those that do go that route, you can look forward to receiving a $10 Gift Card for pre-ordering The Talos Principle. The bonus gift card will essentially drop the price of title down from $49.99 to $39.99. Of course, you could just always pre-order from Amazon or GameStop, if you choose to do so.
Developed by Croteam, the studio behind the over-the-top Serious Sam franchise, The Talos Principle is a slightly more philosophical adventure than the ones starring Samuel “Serious” Stone. Players take control of a robotic android who has recently gained consciousness. Awakening in a mysterious environment, the android is put on the path to enlightenment from a disembodied voice. In order to achieve full enlightenment, players will have to solve a variety of challenging puzzles, because that’s just how life is sometimes.
Originally released for Windows PC and Mac in December 2014, the Deluxe Edition of the title comes packed with the recently released Road To Gehenna expansion. The expansion explores new plot elements of the original title, while also adding 20 brand new puzzles to the package.
The Talos Principle: Deluxe Edition is scheduled to launch for the PlayStation 4 on October 13th.
