The Biggest Collector’s Editions From E3 2016
With the new game announcements at E3 also comes an array of big (and expensive) collector’s editions. This E3, there’s been quite a few, so we figured we’d round them all up to show what games will come with what.
Let us know down below what your favorite collector's edition from this year is and whether or not you plan to pick up any or all.
Titanfall 2 starts us off with two different special editions, the first of which is the GameStop Exclusive Deluxe Collector’s Edition running $160 [Full Disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop]. The more modest of the two editions, buyers will receive a 7-inch pilot bust, a SRS field journal, three art prints, a “Paracord Survival Bracelet,” and two morale patches.
For fans really expecting to love Titanfall 2, there’s the Vanguard Edition, which runs a cool $250. Coming with the aforementioned journal and patches, Vanguards will also get a dog tag, flash drive, and a scarf. But the crème de la crème is the 1:1 scale, battery-operated, light up, mounted Vanguard Pilot Helmet Replica – which would probably look really cool on your dog.
South Park: The Fractured, But Whole
Every time I type, say, or hear that name, I giggle. The game doesn’t come out until December, and already it has given me plenty of entertainment. So, I feel like it may be worth investing in the game’s $130 collector’s edition. For that hefty price and a few giggles, prospective players will receive three postcards, a copy of South Park: The Stick Of Truth for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC, a six-inch figure of The Coon, and even their own personal video game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud, whose purpose has not yet been specified.
Potentially Bethesda’s most impressive showing, our first look at Dishonored 2 gameplay was quickly followed by our first look at the $100 Dishonored 2 Collector’s Edition. Digital assassins will receive a copy of Dishonored Definitive Edition, a poster, protagonist Emily Kaldwin’s ring and a display case for it, and a 13-inch replica of Corvo Attano’s signature mask. The latter probably not being a good disguise if planning on getting up to Attano-inspired shenanigans.
We still don’t know too much about ReCore, but it does have a neat robot dog that is replicated in the game’s $180 collector’s edition. Coming with an art lithograph, decoder dial (?), and a hand-painted, 14-inch statue, this collector’s edition is a must-buy for anyone into mechanical canines.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Speaking of mechanical animals (not the Marilyn Manson album), Sony soothed the sting of Horizon’s recent delay by revealing the $120 Horizon Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition. With it comes a 48-page art book, a PS4 theme, some in-game outfits, DLC packs, and nine-inch statue of protagonist Aloy.
The Last Guardian
It’s hard to believe after 10 years of hype, anticipation, and disappointment, we’re on the precipice of owning The Last Guardian. We are also, if so inclined, on the precipice of owning the $120 collector’s edition of The Last Guardian. The collector’s edition comes with stickers, a 72-page art book, a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack, a steelbook case, and a statue of the game’s protagonist standing on his bird-dog’s sleeping head. All this comes in a cool collector’s box that may or may not give you splinters.
