To my knowledge the Epic Games version cannot be cross-progressed to Steam, so even EGS players that want to move to Steam now that they have options will not be able to do so without giving up pre-orders items, which for some reason is the iconic Predator skin and not something specially made for that.
Likewise Steam had no day one/pre-order edition or any limited time offer that gave it.
Ontop of that, from what I’ve seen of friends playing, they have access to the DLC without having bought it. I even noticed that I had Dante and his early access weapons before I even bought him. This is likely not intentional as they’re available for purchase and it costs ~$17 to own them on Steam.
At the least let us get the pre-order package for people who have bought these DLCs that do nothing prior to them being fixed.
Ordinarily in these situations I would’ve seen a short-term preorder or week 1 window to get a game’s preorder content that is newly released to a platform.
I wouldn’t even think much on this if it was something like the bonus for Friday the 13th, which was a specially designed Jason that was unique.
But this pre-order skin is literally what Predator is meant to look like. It’d be like making the iconic Jason’s hockey mask and jacket outfit the pre-order exclusive.
I’m aware you can get the Hunter mask, but you can’t get the armor class. Arguably more important, as it’s a class and the design has been re-used with different masks over the years, because it is the iconic look.
In short: Please consider giving early adopters or giving any way to obtain the Jungle Hunter 87 for Steam players.
