To say that the Uncharted series is a big-name franchise now would be stating the obvious. The movie-like treasure hunting adventures has quickly become a recognizable exclusive for the PS3. So it’s safe to say that the third title in the franchise, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, is a much-anticipated game. So, if you’re looking to buy it on release day, you might want to check how much cash you have to spare – as Sony has officially unveiled a Collector’s Edition for the title.
The Collector’s Edition of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will be released on the same day as the regular edition and will include a large travelling chest – as well as contain the game itself in an exclusive steelbook case, a full size replica of Drake’s beltbuckle, a wearable replica of Drake’s necklace, and an statue of Drake from Sideshow Collectibles.
Of course, there’s no need to wait until the game is released. Sony has announced the exclusive pre-order content – for those who request the game at their favorite gaming outlet.
Check out the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition below (click to enlarge) and then read-on for the pre-order details:
If you pre-order the collector’s edition, or the game in general, at GameStop, you’ll get the Creepy Crawler Kickback:
The Creepy Crawler Kickback allows you, when you’ve scored the requisite number of Medals, to turn into a swarm of deadly creatures to overwhelm your opponents as long as you’ve got time left on the Kickback countdown timer.
Pre-ordering at Best Buy will unlock the Regeneration Booster:
The Regeneration Booster increases your healing rate in multiplayer, so that you can recover from your wounds and re-enter battle with full health sooner.
Amazon is offering three exclusives: the Carpet Bomb Kickback as well as Clip Size mods for the Para-9 and G-MAL.
The Carpet Bomb Kickback allows you to send out three grenades with a single throw to blanket your opponent – or take out a group of opponents – with multiple explosions. The Clip Size Mods for the Para- 9 and G-MAL increase the size of your bullet clip, allowing you to trade more shots with your opponent before you have to reload.
Finally, pre-ordering at Wal-Mart will give you the Callout Weapon Mod:
The Callout Weapon Mod allows you to equip your old friend, the AK-47, with a laser sight that enables your entire team to see the location of the opponent you are currently targeting.
If you can’t get the game from any of the above stores, other retailers will have an exclusive PSN avatar and PS3 theme for pre-orders.
Which Pre-order bonus sounds the most appealing to you? Will you be ordering a Collector’s Edition?
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will arrive November 1, 2011 for the PS3.
