We have some pretty exciting news now for those of you that are considering buying the much-anticipated Dark Souls game, which as previously mentioned will be available for both the PS3 and Xbox 360, as we’ve just heard that the Dark Souls game is getting a Collector’s Edition.
However, rather than selling the Collector’s Edition at a higher price than the Standard Edition, Namco Bandai has decided to offer it as a pre-order incentive instead and offer it at the exact same price as the Standard Edition. This means that the Collector’s Edition will set you back $59.99.
According to Richard Mitchell over on the joystiq.com website, the Dark Souls Collector’s Edition will come packaged in a metal case, and will include a download of the game soundtrack, a limited edition art book, a mini strategy guide and behind-the-scenes development videos.
Both the Standard and Collector’s Editions of Dark Souls will be available to purchase in North America as from October this year. The Dark Souls action RPG game — which is developed by From Software and published by Namco Bandai — is a spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Demon’s Souls.
The Dark Souls game will provide gamers with extreme battles, weaponry and magic, rewarding challenges, and the ability to customize each character to suit their choice of play style. The game’s online element will include both co-op and competitive multiplayer.
