Battlefield 1 edges closer and closer to release - and in fact, the Early Enlister edition went live earlier today as those who forked over extra cash received the three days advanced early access (along with digital goodies, of course). For the rest of us who don't enjoy spending $20 for early access, there is still time to partake in discounts and bonuses for the standard edition of Battlefield 1 on either the PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4.
As of writing, if you pre-purchase the Origin copy of Battlefield 1 at digital retailer GMG, you'll receive a sign-in discount of $14 for the Standard Edition at $47.99. For Xbox One gamers, choose from Microsoft Store and you'll receive a nice $10 gift card bonus for pre-ordering. In fact, if you order before 10AM Pacific, you'll even receive guaranteed release day delivery on your new physical copy of Battlefield 1 for the Xbox.
- GMG Standard Edition (Origin Key) - $47.99
$10 Bonus for Xbox One/PlayStation 4
- Microsoft Standard Edition (Xbox One Physical/Digital) - $59.99 + $10 Gift Card
- Best Buy Standard Edition (Xbox One) - $59.99 + $10 Rewards
- Best Buy Standard Edition (PS4) - $59.99 + $10 Rewards ($47.99 with GCU)
Early Enlister with No Bonuses
- Microsoft Early Enlister Deluxe (Xbox One Download) - $79.99
- Best Buy Early Enlister Deluxe (PS4/Xbox One) - $79.99 ($63.99 with GCU)
While the Standard Edition of Battlefield 1 can all receive a $10 bonus in one form or another, the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition no longer qualifies for the bonuses as of writing - because this edition is now "released" and live. If you must pick up some sort of discount with an early enlister edition, your only bet is through paid membership such as Best Buy Gamer's Club Unlock or Amazon's Prime. In fact, whenever you purchase a special edition priced near $100, picking up GCU along with it is almost always a safe bet (since you can immediately apply the discount towards the current purchase together).
If you want to get on with Battlefield 1 today and you're on the console, Best Buy's "deal" is probably the best bet. For the console version, the pre-order bonus includes the Hellfighter Pack with the special M1911 pistol, trench shotgun, bolo knife, and insignia. The PC deal from GMG makes no mention of this pre-order bonus, so, suffice to say, it isn't included. All deals listed above should be valid until release day later this Friday. If anything expires early or changes, we'll update the roundup accordingly.
