Wolfenstei​n: The New Order Panzerhund Edition is so Special it Doesn’t Even Need the Game

Collector’s editions that come with an actual copy of the game they are attached to is so old hat. With the Wolfenstei​n: The New Order Panzerhund Edition, Bethesda Softworks is selling a bundle of typical special edition goodies, including a steelbook case, only a copy of the game itself, Wolfenstei​n: The New Order, must be purchased separately. Does that make absolutely no sense at all, or is it just me?

Wolfenstei​n: The New Order Panzerhund Edition is now available for pre-order at store.bethsoft.com for $100 in a limited global supply of just 5,000 units. It contains the following collectible items stuffed inside a stamped and numbered 20″ x 10.5″ x 8.5″ vintage footlocker:

· An 8 inch fully articulated hand-painted Panzerhund statue and base

· Classified folder containing salvaged secret war documents including maps, case files, letters, blueprints and an x-ray

· A set of 14 full-color ‘vintage’ postcards from Wolfenstein’s alternate 1960’s, bound in a display book

· Three embroidered patches

· Custom replica dog tags

· An exclusive Steelbook case to house your copy of the game **Actual game sold separately.

That’s a swell collection of stuff, but I still don’t quite get the point of selling this without a copy of the game, maybe at a price point of $150 so it is ever so slightly cheaper than buying both individually. It would seem to me that any Wolfenstei​n fan serious enough to order the Panzerhund Edition is already going to be buying the game anyway, so why not just put them together like every other collector’s edition?

Wolfenstei​n: The New Order for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One and the Panzerhund Edition are both scheduled to ship May 20th.
