EA unveils WAR Collector's Edition

Extra goodies and in-game content.

Electronic Arts has revealed details of the Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Collector's Edition.

The special bundle was unveiled at a press conference in Paris this morning. It'll include an exclusive Games Workshop miniature depicting Greenskin warboss Grumlok and shaman Gazbag.

Then there's a 128-page hardback graphic novel titled WAR: Prelude to War. It's been written by Graham McNeill and illustrated by Chad Hardin, Joe Abraham, Rahsan Ekedal, Tony Parker and Kevin Hopgood. Each of the six chapters in the book will tell a story about the armies in the game.

You also get a 224-page art book, stuffed with making of info and concept drawings. Plus the European version of the Collector's Edition will include an exclusive mousepad.

There's bonus in-game content, too, such as the Librams of Insight - a power-up which gives you +10 per cent XP for an hour and can be used three times. There are 12 bonus quests and 12 extra character heads to choose from.

There's even more stuff on offer to those who pre-order the Collector's Edition. You'll get access to the open beta so you can get a headstart on building up your character, plus bonus in-game content.

That'll include access to Rittenbach's Portable Camp, where you can heal wounds between battles. If you pre-order from a shop you'll get an extra PvE item, the Sentinel's Amber Band. Pre-ordering online will get you the Guardians' Lolite Band.

The Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Collector's Edition will cost EUR 79.90 (no UK price has been confirmed, but that's around GBP 63). The run will be limited to 55,000 copies and the game will be available to pre-order from today at 3pm.

As reported previously, WAR is down for an autumn release.
