If you pre-order X-Men Origins: Wolverine from Gamestop, you’ll get access to exclusive DLC, Activision announced today.

The content will be four new rooms (Dismemberment Room, the Environtimental Room, the Ladder Challenge, and the Custom Combat Arena), “each of which offers players unique new toys.”

Interested? Get the skinny below.

Also after the break is a brand new trailer for the action-adventure movie tie-in. Presumably released on the same day as the DLC announcement to make you go, “Yeah, that looks great, I think I’ll pre-order it. Might as well, I get some free DLC, too.” Or something.

Go for it. It’s only money.

Thanks, Destructoid.

Games out for every platform imaginable in May.

Those who pre-order the game from GameStop will be able to access four exclusive rooms, each of which offers players unique new toys. The environment is separate from the game itself, and it feels like a stark, white high-tech lab. Players begin in a hallway with a door in each wall.

Through the first door is the Dismemberment Room. Using a control panel, this room lets players select various limbs and body parts on a holographic soldier. Once the selections are locked in, the soldier appears in a tiled room viewed through a glass wall. The selected limbs are severed with spectacular results.

The second room is the Environmental Kill room. This large room features small set-ups of each of the various environments found within the main game. A jungle. A laboratory. A ruined temple. All of these environments contain sharp objects on which Wolverine can impale his enemies. By pushing a red button, players can teleport in a group of soldiers and hurl them against the sharp objects to see them creatively skewered.

The third room is the Ladder Challenge room, which features an array of teleportation disks against the far wall. Pushing a red button will cause a group of enemies to beam into the room. Each time the red button is pushed, the enemies get tougher and more numerous, laddering up the challenge for Wolverine.

The fourth room is the Custom Combat Arena. This huge space lets players select any combination of enemies from within the game, beam them into the arena, and attempt to defeat them. Face ten hulking Leviathans or a blend of towering W.E.N.D.I.G.O. Prototypes, Machete Champions, and Machine gunners. It gives players endless permutations of exciting battles.
