If any developer knows how to put together a collector's edition, SCE Santa Monica Studio is an easy choice. The God of War III Ultimate Edition was a beautiful package that sold out quickly and included some spectacular goodies. Now, the series' next game has a special package of its own and it looks even more appetizing.
A God of War: Ascension Collector's Edition has been announced on the PlayStation Blog, and while it won't cost as much as the God of War III equivalent, it's going to pack a punch of its own. Below is what it will include for the price of $79.99:
- Premium steel book game case
- 8" Kratos statue
- Official game soundtrack (digital)
- PS3 dynamic theme
- PSN avatar pack
- Double XP points code for multi-player
- Code to unlock all future DLC content
If you're planning to play the multi-player for a while then the double XP points will be helpful, but the Kratos statue and game case are must-haves for any God of War fan. The Pandora's box from the God of War III CE was fantastic, so the premium case this time around should be worth displaying in your room.
As with other collector's editions supply will be limited, so head over to your favorite retailer and pre-order now.
On top of this exciting announcement the release date for God of War: Ascension—and its CE—was announced to be March 12th, 2013. It'll be a while, but knowing how quickly time passes it won't be long before we're ripping out elephant brains and repairing wooden docks.
Stay tuned for photos of this well-priced collector's edition as well as any additional details.
