Uncharted 3 Collector’s Edition Detailed
Yesterday Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer revealed on the PlayStation.Blog the Collector’s Edition for UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. The edition comes packed in a Steelbook case and includes full-size replicas of Drake’s belt buckle and necklace which includes Sir Francis Drake’s ring taken directly from the game and a statue of Nathan Drake from Sideshow Collectibles.
When you decide to preorder, keep in mind that every provided retailer will have exclusive bonus content for use in the multiplayer mode of UNCHARTED 3 including Weapon Mods, Boosters and Medal Kickbacks. The Blog mentions these are early bonuses, meaning everyone should expect to see these upgrades sooner or later. Depending on your play style you may want to head to the right store to get your hands on the bonus you want before you jump into some online combat.
From the release:
First up is early access to the Creepy Crawler Kickback, which is available now by pre-ordering at GameStop. The Creepy Crawler Kickback allows you, when you’ve scored the requisite number of Medals, to turn into a swarm of deadly creatures to overwhelm your opponents as long as you’ve got time left on the Kickback countdown timer.
Best Buy Bonus:
By pre-ordering at Best Buy, you’ll unlock the Regeneration Booster early. The Regeneration Booster increases your healing rate in multiplayer, so that you can recover from your wounds and re-enter battle with full health sooner.
Pre-ordering at Amazon.com nabs you three pre-order bonuses – one Kickback and two Weapon Mods. The Carpet Bomb Kickback allows you to send out three grenades with a single throw to blanket your opponent – or take out a group of opponents – with multiple explosions. The Clip Size Mods for the Para- 9 and G-MAL increase the size of your bullet clip, allowing you to trade more shots with your opponent before you have to reload.
Over at Walmart, you can get the Callout Weapon Mod, which allows you to equip your old friend, the AK-47, with a laser sight that enables your entire team to see the location of the opponent you are currently targeting.
If you don’t see your favorite retailer listed above, don’t fret – many other retailers who participate in our pre-order program will be offering a voucher code for an exclusive UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception PSN Avatar and PS3 XMB Theme.
The Collector’s Edition will launch next to the regular edition November 1, 2011. The Collector’s is priced at $99.99 while the regular edition will be sold at the usual $59.99.
