The lights are on
Machine Games’ Wolfenstein: The New Order takes place in an alternate reality in which the Nazis built giant robotic dogs. Today, Bethesda is offering you the chance to give one of them a loving home.
Wolfenstein will be getting a $100 Panzerhund Edition that comes with everything you see in the image above. This includes an 8-inch, articulated Panzerhund statue; a folder of war documents; 14 postcards; 3 patches; dog tags; and a steel book to house your game.
The game itself is sold separately, which puts the total cost of this set at $160, but also makes the 5,000 units platform agnostic. It’s only available through Bethesda’s online store.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be out on May 20 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Our TakeIt struck me as odd at first that the Panzerhund edition doesn’t actually come with the game, but this allows Bethesda to make a limited run without worrying about different SKUs. $160 is steep for a collector’s edition (after game purchase), but if you jumped aboard Titanfall’s $250 monster, maybe this is for you.
