The Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition Has Survival at Its Core
Buying the collector’s edition of any title always brings to mind that day old question: Is it worth it?
I mean, you might get a few novelty items that don’t really have an impact on the game, or something that is cool, but does it serve a purpose other than making your character look snazzy?
Today, Square-Enix announced the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition to launch alongside the game March 5, 2012. You’d better start stacking away that tip money and saving every one of those extra penny-pinched earnings–the set seems like it wields an easy answer of ‘worth it’.
Here is what you can expect from the extremely satisfying contents of the pack:
Play Arts -KAI- Lara Croft figurine
–Lara Croft has been beautifully recreated as an 8-inch Play Arts -KAI- action figure. The figure comes with an alternate set of three hands, bow and arrow, shotgun, handgun, and an ice axe.
Double-sided island map and poster–Discover Key Landmarks from the mysterious island of Yamatai, where Lara Croft and her fellow castaways were marooned after the Endurance shipwreck, in this 15” x 19” poster. On the reverse is a poster-size image of the box art that epitomizes Lara’s origin story.
Lithographic print–An exclusive 5” x 7” Lara Croft heavy-stock lithograph print with matte frame designed by Crystal Dynamic’s Brian Horton, senior art director, and Brenoch Adams, concept artist.
Experience Shields–Three iron-on badges based on the game’s experience icons: “Animal Instincts,” the “Climbing Axe” and “Fire Arrow.”
TOMB RAIDER Original Soundtrack ‘Survivalist Cut’-A collection of 10 tracks with over 60 minutes of music from the game.
Weapons Pack Downloadable Content–includes a variety of weapons to help Lara survive against the island’s inhabitants.
Tomb Raider is set to release March 5, 2012. The Collector’s Edition of the game will be available at select retailers for $99.99.
