With the biggest franchise in the history of video games comes some of the biggest collector pieces. For fans of the Call of Duty franchise, seeing special editions of each annualized release isn’t a surprise. While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 didn’t ship with a “Prestige Edition” so Activision could focus on launching Call of Duty Elite with the Hardened Edition, the two previous releases came with some very cool tech.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 featured a Prestige Edition that featured real, working night vision goggles and its successor, Black Ops, had a similar package that included an RC car. For Treyarch’s followup, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, purchasers of the Prestige Edition will get an actual, usable, flying drone.

Sparse details were shared via official channels earlier today, with the Call of Duty Twitter account tweeting an image that teases a zombies version of the fan-favorite Nuketown map that returns with a year 2025 version in Black Ops 2. The official Activision Facebook page meanwhile, shared an image of Treyarch’s Dan Bunting and David Vonderhaar presenting the “Care Package,” promising new details tomorrow.

You no longer have to wait to find what contents are hidden away in the case however, because leaked images detail exactly what’s coming inside [Update: Activision officially announced the collector’s editions].

Here’s whats inside the case:
