Bethesda reveals Skyrim Collector’s Edition
Posted on August 06, 2011 by MikeV

 

Bethesda has announced that there will be a collector’s edition to the highly anticipated RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Included in an already epic sounding adventure will be the following:

  • Alduin Statue. Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collector’s only statue stands 12” tall and is made of high quality PVC. Modeled from actual in-game 3D digital files, it showcases Alduin, the World Eater. He stands perched atop one the game’s many dragon walls that teach the player the lethal language of dragons.
  • The Art of Skyrim’ Official Art Book. Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-color illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 9 3/8” x 12 1/8” coffee table book showcases the characters, creatures, environments, and weaponry of Skyrim. With a foreword by game director Todd Howard and commentary from Bethesda Game Studios artists, readers will be guided through the game’s iconic visual style. 
  • ‘The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ DVD. This documentary DVD contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage, including interviews with the Bethesda Game Studios team as they take you from concept to creation and provide insights into the story, gameplay, setting, legacy of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and much more

In the press release Pete Hines, Bethesda’s VP of PR says:

“We always say that we make the games we want to play. We can also say we create the collector’s editions we’d want to own. We all want one of these!”

In my opinion, Bethesda always had the best Collector’s Edition of their games. Oblivion had a replica of a coin with the face of Emperor Tiber Septim, a small book about the different areas/lands in Tamerll; Fallout 3’s collector’s edition was packaged in a 50’s styled lunch box with a bobble head and for online retailers it came with a replica PiP Boy digital clock; New Vegas came with a deck of playing cards, a poker chip, comic book, dice and a replica platinum chip. With IP Factory (makers of the TTF2 and Half Life statues) helping to craft this foot tall dragon, Bethesda is sure to please fans with the collector’s edition. The Skyrim collector’s edition will retail for $149.99 and is available for pre-order through your favorite retailer.
