March 26th, 2014 Ayiu

Over at the official Bethesda store, you can now pre-order the Panzerhund Edition of Wolfenstein: The New Order which is limited to 5,000 pieces.

The Panzerhund Edition comes in a vintage footlocker-style box (measuring approximately 20″ x 10.5″ x 8.5″) with a stamped number plate right above the antiqued clasp and includes the following:

  • Inside, you’ll find a classified folder affixed to the lid containing 11 classified documents (an assortment of maps, case files, and even an x-ray)
  • The bulk of the footlocker houses an 8″ articulated Panzerhund statue. Made of high quality vinyl material (PVC and ABS) the statue is hand painted, includes a base, and strikes a surprisingly menacing pose for a scaled-down replica
  • Inset in a velvet-lined tray is an exclusive Steelbook, and a set of 14 full-color weathered-looking postcards of the game’s alternate history, bound in a display book.
  • Lifting this tray reveals compartments housing a set of three high-quality, embroidered patches, and a box containing custom molded replica dog tags, looped and knotted on twine string.

The Edition costs $100 USD and does not include a copy of the game – pre-orders can be placed here

Bethesda has officially announced the Imperial Edition for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Imperial Edition will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in extremely limited quantity  through participating retailers for $99.99 (€99.99 EUR/£89.99 GBP/$ 139.95 AUD).

Original Story:
Bethesda has yet to officially announce a collector’s edition for The Elder Scrolls Online but a user on the Amazon video games forum spotted a very peculiar image attached to the Dishonored GOTY store listing. The image shows a collector’s edition called Imperial Edition for the highly anticipated MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online. This was obviously a mistake and the photos have now been taken down but the image appears real enough.

The image features the following content for the Imperial Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online:

  • Physical Content
    • Collector’s Edition Box
    • Steelbook Packaging
    • Molag Bal Statue – A collectible 12″ statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement
    • Map of Tamriel – A printed map detailing alliance-controlled zones and the ultimate conquest: Cyrodiil
    • Emperor’s Guide to Tamriel – A 224-page illustrated guide annotated by the Imperial scholar, Flaccus Terentius
  • Digital Content

    • Play as an Imperial for any alliance – Appears to be the only way to play as an imperial
    • White Imperial Horse
    • Mudcrab vanity Pet
    • Rings of Mara
