Comic-con always has its fair share of surprises, and Call of Duty always releases with some form of ridiculous Special Edition Bonus’, but yesterday, at San Diego Comic-con, Activision revealed their most lavish Special Edition yet for Call of Duty Black Ops 3… It comes with a fridge, among other things. But before we go on, we’re not talking about some typical under-counter creation from Hotpoint. It is in fact themed around the famous “Juggernog” machine from the popular Black Ops co-op side game, Zombie mode.
In fact it seems that Activision wanted to theme the whole Black Ops 3 Collectors Edition package around the perks available in Zombie mode, so lets break down exactly what you’ll be getting for your money:
– Lets start with that amazing looking “mini-fridge”, which is an exact replica from the series and is fully functional, making it a great addition to any gamer’s man-cave. It also features lights as well as audio from the game and can hold up to 12 regular sized (12oz) cans of your favorite beverage.
– A collectible steal-book cover.
– The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass, granting access to the 4 planned DLC packs for the game.
– “The-Giant” exclusive in game Zombie map.
– 3 personalization packs, including weapon camos, recticles and calling cards.
– The official game DLC soundtrack.
– Limited Edition art cards.
So not exactly the typical statue we’re used to from the world of video game collectibles but certainly an improvement from previous Call of Duty Special Edition packages on a desirability level. But well here comes the bad news, pre-order cost at the moment is £179.99 here in the UK and $289.99 over in the states, so you are paying a fair amount for all that stuff. But put it this way, Halo 5: Guardians Collectors Edition is sitting pretty at £199.99 in the UK, and the stuff included in that can’t cool your drinks.
With all of this in mind, we would of course like to hand this one over to the community for discussion so be sure to head back over to our Facebook page to share you opinions, alternatively feel free to use the websites social features to let us know your thoughts.
