The Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Collector’s Edition is rather disarming

Give him a hand

It’s a date, baby. With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain committed to a release date, and with yours truly having clearly forgotten about the dreaded Metal Gear Solid 2 days of waiting, it looks like the next chapter in Snake’s life is just about ready to go. Of course, the game will be available in more than just the standard Vanilla Snake edition. Although I’m guessing that the special Collector’s Edition might cost an arm and a leg.

Here’s what you’ll get in the Day 1 Edition of the game (Hint: NOT MUCH):

Day 1 Edition Content

Map (Physical version only)

DLC items

  • Adam-ska Special Handgun
  • Personal Ballistic Shield (Silver)
  • Cardboard Box (Wetland)
  • Fatigues (Blue Urban Snake Costume)
  • Metal Gear Online XP Boost

And here’s what the presumably pricier collector’s edition will give you, which is quite heavy on DLC. Click on the picture below to embiggen:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
