Those willing to fork out an additional £80 get an art book, statue, and making-of DVD...
For those of you who missed it, Bethesda unveiled The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's Collector's Edition at QuakeCon over the weekend alongside 30-minutes of leaked footage from the game, and now the publisher's UK arm has dished out details on the CE's release over here.
A retail price of £129.99 has been nailed down for the Collector's Edition, which is a touch on the pricey side considering what's on offer (statue, art book, and making-of DVD). When you weigh-up the fact that Batman: Arkham City's Collector's Edition is being priced at £69.99 and includes a Kotobukiya Batman statue, exclusive in-game items, the soundtrack and art book, you do have to ask where the further £60 is going with Skyrim.
No doubt Bethesda will be quick to point towards the quality of the art book and statue as reasons for the high price tag. Modelled directly from in-game digital files, the statue depicts the Skyrim dragon, Alduin The World Eater perched atop one of the game's many dragon walls and modelled in high-quality PVC. The art book, on the other hand, is a 200-page hardback with a foreword by Todd Howard, Skyrim's Director.
Bethesda's DVD documentary looks pretty handy too with plenty of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. UK retailers, GAME and Gamestation are the only two participating stores for this Collector's Edition over here, and it's available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
The premium quality world map of Skyrim had already been announced as a pre-order incentive for the game, so if you're not too bothered by the art book, DVD and statue but definitely want to buy the game when it releases on November 11th, then a standard pre-order is the way to go.
