The Soul Reaver 2 bonus materials menu

Bonus Materials were a set of materials from the development of Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain: Defiance that were partially unlocked through play and fully awarded to players upon completion of the appropriate game. Bonus materials comprised of a number of images, audio excerpts and videos related to the development of the series as a whole, providing a backdrop to the conception and implementation of the Legacy of Kain series.

ProfileEdit

Bonus Materials were viewed from a special section which appeared in the title menu. The bonus material images include concept art, texture models, renders, scripts, cutscene stills, videos and other development related materials. Some parts of bonus materials could be partially unlocked as players played through the game but the full set were only awarded upon the completion of the game or code entry.[SR2][DEF]

Bonus Materials were first available in Soul Reaver 2 where console versions contained a cheat code to access the bonus items in the title menu. After completion of the game the code to access the full bonus materials was presented to players, although materials would be unlocked by completion of the game.[SR2]

Bonus materials returned in Legacy of Kain: Defiance, here some materials relating to previous entries in the series could be unlocked by collecting the Arcane tomes as players progressed through the game. Upon game completion, the third section "The Making of Legacy of Kain: Defiance" was fully unlocked containing materials from the development of Defiance itself.[DEF]
