Bethesda Announces Skyrim Collector’s Edition
Today Bethesda announced the news everyone has been waiting for: details on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition, and man, is it a big one. I’m told the edition will be very limited, so it might be wise to pre-order soon before they’re all gone. The edition will release for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC for $149.99 (US), €149.99 (Europe), £129.99 (UK), and A$199.99 (Australia).
The collector’s edition will include:
Alduin Statue. Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collector’s only statue stands 12” tall and is made of high quality PVC. Modeled from actual in-game 3D digital files, it showcases Alduin, the World Eater. He stands perched atop one the game’s many dragon walls that teach the player the lethal language of dragons.
‘The Art of Skyrim’ Official Art Book. Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-color illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 9 3/8” x 12 1/8” coffee table book showcases the characters, creatures, environments, and weaponry of Skyrim. With a foreword by game director Todd Howard and commentary from Bethesda Game Studios artists, readers will be guided through the game’s iconic visual style.
‘The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ DVD. This documentary DVD contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage, including interviews with the Bethesda Game Studios team as they take you from concept to creation and provide insights into the story, gameplay, setting, legacy of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and much more.
“We always say that we make the games we want to play. We can also say we create the collector’s editions we’d want to own,” said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks. “We all want one of these!”
As do I.
