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.

GameStop’s pre-owned bundle deals are the best way to experience classic games
GameStop pre-owned PS4 bundle with Naughty Dog games.

Normally, when you purchase a new console, you have to buy the games and accessories separately. One of the best things about buying pre-owned systems, however, is that you can take advantage of bundle offers, many of which include games. That way, you can start playing some awesome titles right when you get home and get everything set up.

If that's the kind of thing you're looking for, GameStop is hands down the best place to go. Even some of the latest gaming deals don't have anything on these bundles! GameStop has put some incredible collections together, and several are appropriately titled Blast from the Past bundles. Some include a console and controller, while others include just the games. PlayStation 4 players have the most to choose from, but there are some Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch bundles too! You can check out more about those below, or jump right to the pre-owned section at GameStop!
