Monster Hunter World Pre-Order Bonus?

I was wondering if Best Buy has the Origin Set Armor and Fair Wind Charm bonus. I don't see it mention on its product page.

Hi jnrz81 –

 

Welcome to the forums and thanks for your interest in pre-ordering Monster Hunter World from us! You as an excellent question, which I’ll be happy to answer for you.

 

Yes, pre-orders made with us include the Origin Set Armor and Fair Wind Charm. You can find this listed at the top of the “Product Features” section on the product pages for the game. Let us know if you have any other questions!

 

Happy Gaming!

Re: Monster Hunter World Pre-Order Bonus?

Michael, the BestBuy website isn't including the DLC as a preorder bonus when you add the game to cart. 

 

So the website isn't properly identifying it as a separate bonus like it has for preordered games in the past.  It's led to issues with games earlier this year not sending out the preorder bonus which were setup exactly as jnrz81 is describing ....

 

Other retailers are advertising it as a preorder code that is getting emailed out separately.

Hi young8228 –

 

We expect digital bonus codes to be sent out via email within 48-hours of pre-orders being fulfilled, so you should expect to receive your bonus code within that period. However if you do not receive your code within that period after release please see our Gaming Codes Thread for basic troubleshooting steps and contact instructions for assistance in locating any missing bonus codes.

Re: Monster Hunter World Pre-Order Bonus?

Right - the gaming thread should help with giving codes if the emails are not automatically sent out but the important thing to bear in mind is that since the preorder bonus is not being separately tracked, a lot of us expect there to be another round of misdelivered preorder bonuses once this game comes out in January.

 

We think if the website was fixed to address it now, we could all avoid the hassle of waiting and just have the codes sent as soon as the online orders are fulfilled.  Case in point, I used to pick up online orders at my store and the codes would be sent out immediately upon pickup.  Nowadays, codes have taken days after the game comes out when we're far into the game already and only if we go through the hassle to follow up with the missing code ourselves manually.  It would be very helpful if the codes were fulfilled simultaneously upon pickup like it has in the past.

An example is the Xbox One X promotion going on right now. 

 

If you add the system to your online order, you can see the Players Unknown Battleground DLC added as the free bonus.  If we just do this for Monster Hunter World, it'll ensure a smoother experience.

Re: Monster Hunter World Pre-Order Bonus?

That's a valid concern. I'm fine with getting the code emailed to me but it would suck if it took days. I would really like access to those bonuses as soon as I start the game.

Re: Monster Hunter World Pre-Order Bonus?

Somebody finally updated the Best Buy website for the Monster Hunter World preorder bonus but only for the Xbox One version. 

 

Can you guys please add it for the PS4 version as well? It's only showing the steelbook while still missing the DLC preorder bonus.  Thank you!
