Battlefield 1 has a $220 Collector’s Edition

BF1

War. War never changes. And neither does the desire for an expensive piece of pre-release kit with which to show off your specific allegiance to a particular video game brand.Battlefield 1 is out in October, and as usual there’ll be several flavours of older warfare to get your hands on at retail.

“Be the first on front lines–snag the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition today and get the Hellfighter, Red Baron, and Lawrence of Arabia packs full of themed weapons and gear; five extra Battlepacks stuffed with great items; and access to the full game on October 18, three days before release,” said the hyperbolic description on the Battlefield 1 website.

Here’s the full list of extras, in neat bullet-point firm. Unlike Biggles, whose aircraft went down behind enemy lines. Blasted Germans and their helmets with the fancy pointy bit that looks so much better than ours.

  • Early Access on October 18th
  • Hellfighter Pack
  • Red Baron Pack
  • Lawrence of Arabia Pack
  • 5x Battlepacks

And on to the main event. If you fancy dropping an entire $220 on a fancier edition, you’re in luck. Because that’s exactly how much the Battlefield 1 Collector’s Edition will cost, although expect that price to be significantly higher after conversion for our neck of the woods. Here’s what’s inside of it:

BF1 CE

  • Battlefield 1 Deluxe Edition Game
  • 14 inch tall statue
  • Exclusive steel book
  • Exclusive cloth poster
  • Deck of playing cards
  • Messenger pigeon tube with exclusive DLC
  • Exclusive patch
  • Premium packaging

Gotta have me some of that premium packaging. Battlefield 1 is out in October, and it’ll apparently have a single-player campaign that extends across the globe as the horrors of war happen to be completely colour-blind. And that’s kind of neat. Meanwhile, I’ll be attempting to avoid any needless bloodshed. I’m using an old trick that I picked up in the Sudan, that requires my underwear and two pencils. Wibble.

  1. “Exclusive Patch” – you mean like a day 0 patch, or?

            What EA is essentially doing with their “always online” single player games is they’re indirectly admitting that they’ll never make timeless games again, because when those servers close down you’re sitting with a paperweight.

        There is this one case where the British decided to build guided bomb systems, pigeons have the ability to memorise an estimate of about 50000 pictures, at least that’s how they know where they are, what the Brits did was build a cage into the bomb, and reward said pigeon with food by placing an aerial image of the area they wanted bombed, needless to say they didn’t get very far with said design…

          Think the US also had a covert program with bats, where they would attach timed incendiary devices to bats and release them across Japan. Set to go off during the day when the bats are sleeping in the roofs of buildings across the cities.

        At least it’ll be a good distraction and if you’re lucky the bombs they drop will fall into the eyes of your enemy.

    Better “ditch” the thought of buying this CE… Unless you know your stomach can “tank” the rest of the month on fumes.

    The Leaks have begun… 6 episodes of Campaign (Sounds like Hard Line) Multiplayer have weapon purchases…..

    Don’t know how true this is though but will keep an eye on the big bad web

    Comeon.. 220 DOLLAHS!! For 220 Dollahs they could throw in a replica gas mask, replica Pickelhaube and the flags of either the axis countries or the allied countries.

    I’m excited for this game, but this is EA being EA…
