Little over 20 years have passed since the three brothers, Mephisto, Baal and Diablo were slain by a handful of heroes. Most likely, if you truly are a dedicated fan of the series, the lore of Diablo is familiar to you. However, you can’t truly call yourself a Diablo 3 die-hard fan if you do not own the Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition copy of the game.
Diablo 3 is available in both standard and Collector’s Edition versions. Judging by the content of the more expensive version, it would be a mistake not to get it. Blizzard made sure that the die-hard fans get special treatment and included a ton of goodies inside the Collector’s Edition. Let’s go through a quick overview of what can be found inside the premium box and what makes it worth every cent.
What you find in the Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition:
Diablo III full game of course
Nothing special worth mentioning about this item.
Diablo III Soundtrack
The music in the game is amazing. Blizzard has went beyond and above what gamers are used to in terms of music. This time we have a full soundtrack that was recorded on a scene with a famous orchestra. If you still want to listen to it but do not want to get the Collector’s Eddition, you can buy it in mp3 format from iTunes.
Diablo’s skull and a 4 GB USB Flash Drive
The flash drive itself is made to resemble a soul shard fragment. Diablo’s skull is a replica with great attention to detail and can be used as a dock for the USB stick. On the flash drive itself we can find Diablo 2 and the Lord of Destruction Expansion. Great bonus for the ones that do not own previous games in the series.
Special Digital Bonus
Here we have two in game dyes, the Bottled Cloud and Bottled Smoke. Additionally, we also get Glowing Tyrael’s Angelic Wings. The wings can be kept into the inventory and can be shared with all characters with the aid of the common stash. Once activated, the character will have wings similar to Tyrael’s.
The Art Of Diablo 3
This is a hardcover book with 208 pages containing amazing handmade sketches and designs of the game in its development stages.
Diablo 3 Making Of DVD
The DVD includes interviews with the leading developers talking about every aspect of the game. It also includes footage from the sound recording sessions and actual developers working on the game.
Digital Items for World of Warcraft and Starcraft II
By this we mean the Fetish Shaman Pet for WoW and battle.net portraits for Starcraft II.
Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition – Unboxing Video
This sums up all the features included in the Collector’s Edition of the game. As we can see, there is a great deal of goodies in just one box. With such an amazing package, almost all the copies vanished from every store in just a few days after the launch. Truth be told, even if you are not a die-hard fan you will love the Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition. Blizzard did a great job including all these bonuses and the Diablo 3 Skull and USB stick alone make it a must have for every respectable gamer.
