Cost

It was announced that there are pre-order options. Pre-orders can only be made through Steam with players who have Steam accounts. Those Steam accounts had to have made purchases before June 2021 to be eligible; this tactic will help reduce malicious behavior from scalpers. There are three tiers available, each with different prices, storage capacities, and perks:

  • $399 - 64GB and comes with a carrying case
  • $539 - 256GB and comes with both a carrying case and excuslive bundle
  • $649 - 512GB and comes with carrying case, bundle, anti-glare glass, and more

These prices seem to be set at the above prices for each tier. It does not seem that players who pre-order will be receiving a discounted price for their purchase. These prices will likely continue after launch day.
