GAME Offering Quantum Break Preorder Holders Kameo Code Instead Of Alan Wake
Purchasers can still get Alan Wake: American Nightware if they go to the store with their ID.
When most consumers preorder Quantum Break, they will be getting a free code of Alan Wake: American Nightmare. It turns out there are a limited number of people who purchase the upcoming game will actually be getting a download code for Kameo. UK retailer GAME says they had to change out the pre-order offer because of the rating of the games in question.
While Quantum Break is apparently rated as a PEGI 16 game, Alan Wake: American Nightmare has been rated as PEGI 18. Because the game is only available to gamers 18 and over in the UK, the retailer cannot package the two titles together. Because the store chain wants people to still be able to get something for free if they do purchase Quantum Break ahead of time, they are packing in a code for Kameo instead.
While this news is likely to annoy and anger some of those who expected one game and are getting another for this preorder, GAME has done one better. The company says that those who have purchased Quantum Break ahead of time can bring their copy of the game, as well as their ID into their local store. Once they prove they are of an age where they can play Alan Wake: American Nightmare, they will get the free download code for that title as well.
In other words, it turns out that GAME is giving users three games for the price of one, all because the PEGI ratings were different. There’s a little bit of an annoyance but purchasers are getting more bang for their buck. Quantum Break launches for the Xbox One and Windows 10 on April 5, 2016.
