Skyrim Collector's Edition


In addition to including the eagerly awaited game, this premium version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also includes:

• Alduin Statue. Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collector’s only statue stands 30.5cm tall and is made of high quality PVC. Modelled 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-colour illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 23.8cm x 30.8cm 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.

“We always say that we make the games we want to play. We can also say we create the collector’s editions we’d want to own,” said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks. “We all want one of these!”

The extremely limited Collector’s Edition will be available through pre-order in the UK via GAME and gamestation for £129.99.


Well, it’s a whopping price tag for a dvd, art book and statue, but I’m expecting them to be of lovely quality. The only gripe I have with these gotta catch ’em all editions, is that the game is new. It might not be any good yet! Surely you buy a special edition with a statue and art book and commerative blood sample after playing the game and falling in love with it? Anyway, it will be fancy.

In other news, look at these QuakeCon-tastic screenies for RAGE, Prey 2 and Dishonored, in that order:

Violence + Stilts- it could happen. Still wondering what snorkel clapping is? It's a bit like this.
