has a pre-order bonus that may be too good to pass up for the competitive among us. Players who fork out the dough early will get unlimited dash and unlimited "high voltage". Both are the equivalent of a sprint; dash for the physical and high voltage for the ethereal "wanderer mode" used to hack targets. Certainly an intriguing pre-order bonus certainly, but I have to wonder how this will effect the multiplayer. Are these abilities exclusive to pre-order players or do they just get them earlier than everyone else? Will this have a detrimental impact on gameplay so that only pre-order players are able to dominate in multiplayer matches? Either way you might want to watch out for players with gold uniforms on their characters if you don't pre-order; that's the third perk for pre-ordering. You can jump on this opportunity to get ahead of the curve now by pre-ordering on the official site
or by going to Amazon
