Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition Details Leaked
Thank you to everyone who wrote in to tell us about the leaked Collector’s Edition of Aliens: Colonial Marines. French Gaming site Gamekyo broke the announcement.
The graphic above clearly shows that the CE will come in a nice looking display box along with a statue of the iconic power loader along with some in-game content. It’s unclear which region the CE is slated for,
though considering the game has already been released in North America (correction: it was scheduled for release in November but pushed back) and the leak occurred in France I would venture a guess that this will be at very least a UK release, possibly all of Europe. I would suspect we will get more details including pricing once it gets closer to the ambiguous “Spring 2012” release date.
Turning Point: Fall of Liberty to get Collector’s Edition
While it’s unclear when or if an official announcement was made, what is clear is that most major game retailers are now listing a Collector’s Edition for Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Codemaster’s alternative history WWII era Shooter. While the Game is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC it would seem that the Xbox 360 version is the only one that will be getting the CE Treatment.
Scheduled for release on February 26th this CE seems to be retailing for $65, which is surprising since that’s $5 less than one you’d normally expect to see a CE list for. Unconfirmed but supposedly included with the package is a “steel book” case (similar to Jericho, Perfect Dark Zero, and others), a Making of Game DVD, Sound track as well as an Alternate History Timeline poster and a Concept Art Book.
While Turning Point certainly isn’t the franchise on every gamer’s mind this February for an extra $5 the CE looks well worth a purchase if you were planning on picking this up anyway.
