Bethesda Softworks, the video game publisher that exists under ZeniMax leadership, has announced that it plans to launch a Collector's Edition for their upcoming mix between action and role playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.The package, which the publisher says will be offered in small numbers, will include:
- the Alduin statue, created by IP Factory using actual in game files and made from high quality PVC that figure stands 30.5 cm tall and shows off, in high detail, the dragon Alduin, also known as The World Eater, standing on one of the many in game walls that teach the player the devastating language of the flying beasts;
- an official art book called “The Art of Skyrim”, which has more than 200 pages of full color illustrations, models and sketches that are designed to show off how the various elements of Skyrim evolved during the development process, with Todd Howard, the director of the game, offering commentary on the visual style;
- a DVD called “The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” which includes interviews and behind-the-scenes footage that shows how the various elements of the game came together and how the developers crafted Skyrim.
Pete Hines, who is the vice president of Public Relations and Marketing at Bethesda Softworks, has stated, “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. We all want one of these!”
The only problem with the Collector's Edition for Skyrim is that the cost will be set at 150 dollars, which is quite a lot of money for a video game and accompanying items.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be launched on November 11 of this year on the PC, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
