Warner Bros. Interactive today revealed details about Batman: Arkham Origins' collector's edition. The $120 package includes the game and a host of extras, including a light-up Joker statue.

The special edition will be available for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, which is set to release on October 25. Here's what you'll get, straight from Warner:

  • The PS3 edition will also include the Knightfall pack as an exclusive piece of content


Our Take
Collector's editions are now an inescapable part of high-profile game releases, so it's not surprising that Batman: Arkham Origins would get the red-carpet treatment. This edition packs in a lot of goodies, including that amazing statue. Of course, that bonus content won't likely remain exclusive forever, but this'll hold you over until the inevitable game of the year edition arrives. It's definitely one of the more impressive collector's editions I've seen, though I can't help but wonder if that stencil is going to bite Warner in the backside. The Joker would surely be proud.
