Special editions of games keep becoming more lavish, more ostentatious and as a result, more expensive. Oftentimes, they border on the ridiculous. They’ve now quite convincingly jumped the shark. The latest, very limited edition of the physical edition of Dying Light costs a disconcerting £250,000. At current exchange rates, this extremely limited edition of the game would cost you R 4,442,120. Yes, that’s nearly four and a half million Rand. I think. I’m not good with numbers. It’s available exclusively from the UK’s GAME, and is called My Apocalypse. Why on earth does it cost so much?
For starters, it comes with a house. Yes, an actual house – but not just any house. Rather it’s one that’s been specifically made to be zombie proof. Yes, really. The house in question is “fortified zombie apocalypse-proofed” and will be built to order by UK company Tiger Log Cabins. The house will feature an upper deck, an escape hatch, arsenal storage for weaponry, and a living area with TV, Xbox One, and a banging sound system.
It also comes with Parkour lessons, survival guidance from an expert, and a trip to Poland to meet the game’s developers. Oh, and four copies of the game so you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth.
Here’s what the thing contains:
- Custom built Dying Light Zombie Home by Tiger Log Cabins
- Zombie avoidance parkour lessons with Ampisound, the team behind the internet smash Dying Light Parkour POV video
- Be The Zombie match with devs where you win so you can brag to your friends how “leet” you are
- Trip to Techland in Wroclaw, Poland, to meet the dev team and party with Steve the Zombie Consultant
- Your face skinned onto your Night Hunter character model
- Dying Light branded night vision goggles + adult diapers for the night portions of the game
- x4 signed Steelbox editions of Dying Light
- x2 Top of the line Razer Tiamat headphones
- Human sized Volatile figurine to use as a deterrent on human raiders
That sounds like it’s worth 250 thousand squids to you?
