This is not the collector’s edition

As promised, today was a big day for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt RED announced the release date, along with the contents of the Collector’s Edition. Wild Hunt will release on February 24, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Now, you see the image pictured above? That’s the standard edition. Unlike most standard editions, which just contain the game, this one includes:

  • A Blu-ray game disc (PS4/Xbox One)
  • Exclusive official soundtrack
  • “Witcher Universe – The Compendium”
  • Map of the in-game world
  • A set of stickers
  • A protective sleeve

So, with all that in the standard edition, what does the Collector’s Edition contain?

  • Everything from the standard edition
  • 33x24x26 cm, 100% hand painted Polystone figure of Geralt fighting a griffin
  • Witcher medallion
  • Exclusive SteelBook™ box
  • 200-page artbook
  • Outer and inner Collector’s Boxes to hold the contents of the Collector’s Edition

Dragon Age: Inquisition Collector’s Edition Revealed

May 13, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Dragon Age CE

If you’ve been waiting to hear what you can get in a physical collector’s edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition, wonder no more. The Inquisitor’s Edition, which seems to be exclusive to GameStop (correct us if we’re wrong), was revealed today. It contains:

  • Exclusive Inquisitor Collector’s Edition case (8.5″ x 13.5″ x 14.5″)
  • Cloth map of Thedas
  • 72-card Major and Minor Arcana tarot card deck
  • Inquisitor full scale, six piece, lockpick set
  • Four map markers (3.5″ x 3.5″ x 4″)
  • Inquisitor’s Badge
  • Quill and inkpot
  • 40-page Inquisitor’s Journal
  • Orlesian Coins
  • SteelBook case for the game
  • Copy of Dragon Age Inquisition Deluxe Edition

Take note that the version of Inquisition is the Deluxe Edition, which means you’ll get the digital bonus content we’ve previously discussed.

The Inquisitor’s Edition contains a lot of cool stuff, and if you really love the Dragon Age universe and lore, it might be worth the high cost of $169.99.

We’ve got one more thing for you today, as well. A new location has been revealed.

Dragon Age Western Approach

We don’t know very much yet about the Western Approach, but it looks vastly different from the other areas we’ve seen. We hope Bioware will reveal more information soon. In the meantime, let us know what you think of the collector’s edition, and if it sounds like something you’d like to buy.

Destiny’s Competitive Multiplayer and Collector’s Edition

March 29, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

There’s no doubt that Destiny is one of the most anticipated games of the year and has been ever since it was announced. We learned some new details from Bungie’s latest weekly blog post, in which some fan questions were answered.

One fan asked for more details about the competitive multiplayer aspect of the game. You won’t be able to “ambush” other players, and if you don’t care for competitive multiplayer, you don’t have to participate at all. However, the option is definitely there if you’re interested in it.

We want to know the baddest Guardian in the Tower. We want to see you battle each other for glory and bragging rights. You’re going to practice the combat style you perfected in fighting against the Cabal’s professional military and see if it works on each other. May the odds be ever in your favor.

If you’ve been wondering about magic, as one fan was (concerned it might be flashy, but not very useful), Bungie confirmed that magic is powerful.

Someone else asked if there would be a Collector’s Edition for Destiny. Well, we still don’t know for sure, but it’s a pretty safe bet that there will be. And since the answer was “Ask us again next week,” we have a feeling it’ll be revealed soon.

Well, we’ll keep our eyes open for news about that Collector’s Edition next week. In the meantime, check out the rest of the blog post to see some of the zanier questions and answers, as well as impressions about how well Destiny is coming along. Are you excited?

Wolfenstein: The New Order Releases May 20

All right, Wolfenstein fans! If you’ve been looking forward to the newest game in the series, we finally know when you’ll be able to play it. Wolfenstein: The New Order will release worldwide on May 20, for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. (And don’t forget that preorders come with a beta for the next Doom game.)

Also, the limited Panzerhund Edition was announced today, but before you run out to buy it from Bethesda’s store, make sure you know what it contains. It costs $100 and comes with a folder containing 11 documents, an 8-inch articulated Panzerhund statue, a steel book case, 14 postcards, 3 patches, and a set of dog tags, all within a special footlocker. The one thing it doesn’t include is the game itself.

Wolfenstein Panzerhund edition

There will only be 5,000 copies of the Panzerhund set, each of which is numbered.

A collector’s edition that doesn’t actually include the game sounds kind of strange to us, and it actually raises the price to about $160 if you buy the game as well. Still, if you’re really interested in the game’s lore, at least the Panzerhund edition contains a lot of interesting stuff. What do you think?
