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

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?
