European Killzone 3 editions detailed!By Victor Zuylen on Nov 30, 2010 12:00:00 AM
When we announced that the US would get a standard and a Helghast Edition of Killzone 3, the question we received the most was “Will Europe get a Helghast Edition as well?” We’re happy to confirm that this will indeed be the case – in fact, Europe will have three Killzone 3 editions to choose from!
Aside from the Standard Edition, there will also be a Collector’s Edition in “SteelBook” packaging. It includes a PlayStation Network voucher code that can be redeemed for a downloadable copy of the Killzone 3 soundtrack and the dynamic XMB theme, as well as a Retro Map Pack that brings two battlefields from Killzone 2 back into the fight.
And that’s not all! If you pre-order the Collector’s Edition through participating retailers, you will receive an additional voucher code for one of the following pre-order bonus packs. (We’ll update our pre-order page with retailers and pre-order offers as they become available, so check back often.)
- Guerrilla Pack
Unlocks all weapons and abilities for your first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.
- Fast Starter Pack
Lets you rise through the ranks faster by earning experience points at twice the normal rate for your first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.
- Unlock & Load Pack
Gives you 3 unlock points to use on any weapon or ability you want.
Not bad, eh? Of course, the true pièce de résistance is the Helghast Edition, which comes in a hand-decorated Helghast helmet and includes everything from the “SteelBook” Collector’s Edition, as well as a 100-page hardbound art book, an exclusive “cloaking” marksman action figure from DC Unlimited and all of the aforementioned pre-order bonus packs. We have one of these bad boys in our office right now, and it looks even better than we’d hoped.
So whether you’re a casual player, a first-person shooter fan or a serious Killzone collector, there’s something here for everyone. Let us know which edition you fancy in the comments!
