Stepping up from the Enhanced Edition is the Dark Edition, a collectible set containing all Enhanced Edition extras plus a Making-of DVD, a metal wolf head medallion on a chain, a 232-page hardcover art book, a pack of three stickers, and a heavy-stock cardboard collector’s box to store everything in. Dark Edition pricing has not yet been officially confirmed, however GameStop is currently listing it for $99.99.
