Elden Ring Collector’s Edition And Other Editions Detailed
After a seeming eternity in the shadows, Elden Ring has been getting a rather awesome spotlight in recent weeks, with the latest showcase being capped off with an amazing 19-minute look at gameplay. However, as the tense action RPG treads towards its official release date, fans look have received their most tangible peek at launch yet with the reveal of each various edition for the release of Elden Ring.
Upon the official commencement of pre-orders, 5 total editions are now confirmed for the launch of Elden Ring: Standard, Digital Standard, Digital Deluxe, Collector’s, and Premium Collector’s Editions. First up, the Standard and Digital Standard Editions ($60 USD) predictably contain a sole copy of the game, either as a respective disc or digital download. Digital Deluxe ($80 USD) goes a bit further by also including a digital artbook and game soundtrack.
Things get that much spicier with the Elden Ring Collector’s Edition ($190 USD), as the specially-enclosed package contains a number of nifty extra physical goodies. In addition to a steelbook-enclosed disc copy of the game, owners will also get the digital soundtrack, a realized 40-page hardcover artbook, as well as a 9-inch statue of Malenia: Blade of Miquella, the wing-helmeted valkyrie character ever-present in Elden Ring’s advertising.
Of course, the biggest of all these special editions, the Premium Collector’s Edition, consolidates even more for a more premium experience – namely, a full-scale helmet replica to presumably wear when firing up the game for the first time. Though this particular version is fairly limited and exclusive to the Bandai Namco store, it hasn’t gone on sale just yet. However, a briefly-available European listing suggested it may have a price point of $230 USD.
Aside from the aforementioned Premium Collector’s Edition, each of these versions is currently available to pre-purchase on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms. Regardless of whichever edition, those who opt to pre-order will get early access to an in-game Bonus Gesture dubbed “The Ring” as well as the Digital Adventure Guide, which is described as containing “useful information for the player’s adventures in the Lands Between.”
Elden Ring releases February 25th, 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
