Activision today released loads of new assets for Raven's upcoming Wolverine beat-em-up, movie tie-in game X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Also revealed was a significant preorder bonus from GameStop, which includes four rather sadistic "rooms" for Xbox 360 and PS3 players. More details after the break.

Click through for more information on the GameStop danger rooms:

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.
