BethSoft Unveils World Eating Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition


Bethesda today outed its luxurious The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition, and at $149.99 (€149.99 in Europe, £129.99 in the UK, and A$199.99 in Australia) you are definitely going to have to break the bank to afford it.

But if you have a fat wad of cash just waiting to eat a whole through your pocket, go ahead and waste feed your money to The World Eater himself, Alduin, the terrifying dragon of Nordic myth.

Pictured above, the Collector’s Edition, available for pre-order now on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, comes with a statue of the aforementioned Alduin, a classy, coffee table-quality art book and a bonus documentary DVD. The image also shows a large, cloth map, but you have to pre-order the game for that bonus.

Here are more details about the contents:

– 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.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches worldwide on November 11th. So, who’s buying the CE?
