Dark Souls II’s Collector’s Edition is Worth Dying For


Namco Bandai is killing its fans with kindness, offering not one but two special edition SKUs for Dark Souls II.

There’s the Black Armor Edition, a limited edition copy of the game that comes as a free upgrade with all pre-orders, while supplies last. This version comes in a metal steelbook case with a copy of the official soundtrack CD.

Then there is the all-out Collector’s Edition, which includes the Black Armor Edition content in addition to a 12″ 16-ounce Warrior Knight figurine, a hardbound art book, and a cloth game map. How much will it cost? Sorry, I can’t tell you at the moment. Namco Bandai’s press release doesn’t give a price and I don’t see any retailer pre-order listings just yet. [Update] GameStop now has a pre-order listing for the Collector’s Edition at a price of $119.99.

But I can tell you when specifically Dark Souls II will be available. In the Americas, the Dark Souls sequel is scheduled to ship March 11, 2014, first on PS3 and Xbox 360 with the PC version to launch “shortly after the console version becomes available to consumers.”
