Capcom has opened Steam pre-orders for Resident Evil: Revelations, the HD remaking of the 3DS title which is considered a little more old school than Resident Evil 6, which also arrived on PC recently. The publisher is running one of those rolling pre-order incentive schemes; the first tier offers an artbook and soundtrack; the second includes Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions; and the third throws in a DLC season pass. The first tier has already been unlocked. Revelations will set you back $50.
Thanks, Capcom Unity.

Cal of Duty: Black Ops 2 pre-orders granted access to an exclusive Nuketown 2025 map, but just one week on from launch, it vanished from XP-generating multiplayer playlists. After an outcry from gamers the map has been re-added, along with a new chaos match type.

If you pre-order Insomniac’s latest effort Fuse, you’ll score a couple of neat bonuses. Although most seem to be purely cosmetic – Hyperion Prototype skins for each of your characters and weapons – the last one is a team perk called Quickdraw which speeds up one-handed weapons use. Could be useful, although its the unique weapons powered by the titular fuse you’ll utilise the most I imagine. Visit the co-op shooter’s site for more information. Fuse is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2013.

PES 2013 has a spiffy steelbook case which will be provided for free to those who pre-order at GameStop in the US or EB Games in Canada. The limited edition casing comes in two flavours – one features an “homage to the UEFA Champion’s League”, and the other has Copa Libertadores. I’d love to show you some photos but Konami’s asset mirror actually hates me. There’ll be a new PES 2013 demo this week ahead of the full game’s launch in September on PC and HD consoles, with portable, PS2 and Wii releases to follow.

Cancel your retail pre-order because Capcom’s online store clearly has the best offer on Resident Evil 6. The publisher’s web frontage is offering US pre-orders a bonus umbrella branded with the Umbrella Corporation logo. Whether you are sheltering from the rain or the sunshine, everyone will know you belong to the most disastrously inept and totally badass conglomerate ever to not exist. Supplies are limited, so throw money at it here. Resident Evil 6 hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.

LittleBigPlanet Vita has not been dated but is expected this year.

Lost Mayan Ruins, a DLC mission included with one of the three special editions for Assassin’s Creed III, will be available as a pre-order bonus at Gamestop.

Assassin’s Creed III is due on October on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Square Enix is letting Europeans in on the transforming weapon madness too, offering Noel’s Muramasa weapon as a pre-order bonus through “certain retailers”. It can be a sword, a spear, or I don’t even know, some sort of enormous sword thing. The new bonus comes in addition to a number of extras included in a previously detailed pre-order pack. Final Fantasy XIII-2 releases in early 2012 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2012.
