call duty ghosts pre order roundup preorders cod

Planning ahead can be tough, especially when you have as many as many options as Call of Duty: Ghosts  has pre-order bundles to choose from. From promotional gift cards and Mega Bloks to exclusive characters and discounts on Eminem’s forthcoming album, retailers seem to be pulling out all the stops to lure in gamers and ensure sales of the latest title in the Call of Duty franchise. Each pre-order comes bundled with the dynamic Free Fall bonus map — along with access to the Double XP Launch Weekend taking place from 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8 to 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 11. — but additional bonus perks vary from retailer to retailer.

Below is a roundup of blockbuster retailers where you can still pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts, as well as the hand-in-hand bonuses you’ll receive in return. Free shipping and release-date delivery isn’t always guaranteed, but at least you’ll earn double experience points as you elegantly power slide your way through the recently-announced multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches on Nov. 5 on current-gen consoles and as a Day One title on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 15 and 22, respectively. In the meantime, take a quick visual look at Call of Duty: Ghosts.
