There are many reasons why a person would pre-order a game like Elden Ring. The first and most prominent reason is that you are probably a Souls fan; therefore, there is no way you will miss the opportunity to play the game on day one. Like every other game, the Elden Ring‘s pre-order comes with bonuses and advantages. If you have pre-ordered the Elden Ring but couldn’t claim your bonus, here is the guide for how to do it.
How to Get Your Elden Ring Pre-Order Bonus
For trusting the game and pre-ordering it, the game developer would add some bonus material like DLCs to show their appreciation gesture. For pre-ordering Elden Ring, you will get an Adventure Guide and an extra gesture. So claiming your bonus is different from in consoles and PC.
If you have pre-ordered the game on your consoles, the Adventure Guide will be a downloadable app, just like the game. With the Adventure Guide, you will learn more about the lore and story of the game and some tips and tricks that would help you through your journey. The Adventure Guide will be unlocked simultaneously as the game unlocks.
Now getting your pre-order reward on Steam is a different story. Right-click on the game and select the properties and then check the DLC for the game. If you have pre-ordered the game, then you will gain access to the Adventure Guide.
Now, if you have ordered the game physically, there should be a code for you in the receipt. As for the bonus gesture, there shouldn’t be a problem, and you can find it in the gesture cycle in the game.
