True to franchise form over the past few installments, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is blasting onto store shelves in multiple Collector’s Edition configurations, from “Hey, that’s affordable” to “Holy shit, that muthafucka’s expensive!”

The ultra-pricey edition this time around is what Activision is calling the “Care Package.” Pictured up top, the Care Package is a $180 crate full of stuff, including a remote control drone. Here’s a more detailed list of contents:

- Call of Duty: Black Ops II game
- Remote Controlled MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone – Command cutting-edge technology, exclusively for this once-in-a-lifetime combat collection.
- Nuketown Zombies Bonus Map – Battle hordes of Zombies in this beloved 1960s nuclear neighborhood.
- Nuketown 2025 Bonus Map – Relive the close quarters chaos of this classic fan-favorite map re-imagined in a 1960s visionary depiction of the “model home of the future.”
- Collectible 2-Sided SteelBook – Limited edition game case featuring exclusive artwork.

- Weapon Camo – Rank-up in style with an exclusive multiplayer weapon skin.
- (2) Player Card Backgrounds – Liven up any killcam with two exclusive player card backgrounds, inspired by Nuketown 2025 and Zombies.
- Official Call of Duty: Black Ops II Soundtrack – A digital copy of composer Jack Wall’s epic in-game score with Theme by Trent Reznor.
- Xbox LIVE CLAW Avatar Prop – An exclusive avatar prop, deployable to a dashboard near you.
- Xbox LIVE Zombies Avatar Costume – Show off your pride with an avatar costume built exclusively for fans of the Call of Duty undead.

*PlayStation 3 versions include a dynamic multiplayer theme of the Turbine map as well as a dynamic Zombies theme that shows off Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies

Shaving the price tag down by $100, the traditional Hardened Edition is a more reasonable $80. It comes with everything that’s in the Care Package, sans the remote control drone and the crate it’s packed in. This is what the PS3 Hardened Edition looks like:

Both the Care Package and Hardened Edition are available for pre-order on Xbox 360 and PS3 only. For PC gamers, Activision offers the Digital Deluxe Edition which, for $80 also, contains the two Nuketown bonus maps, the weapon camo, the player card backgrounds, and the digital soundtrack, plus the exclusive bonus of a full game download token for Call of Duty: World at War.

Whew! Did you get all that?
