GAME outs Dragon Age special edition

Elaborate CGI launch trailer released.

GAME will be the only place to sell the Collector's Edition of Dragon Age: Origins in the UK.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions cost £54.99, while the PC SKU is £44.99. Both have a fiver off at the moment.

Extras include a typical bonus DVD with typical making-of, soundtrack, game-video, art and tips footage.

More exciting are four special in-game items: Bergen's Honour, an end-game helmet with +2 armour, +25 physical resistance and +6 attack; Final Reason, a mid-level staff with a bonus to fire damage and spellpower; Grimoire of the Frozen Wastes, a usable book that adds +3 to all stats when read; and Memory Band, a ring that adds one skill point and +1 to experience earned. The latter can be stacked up to three or four times on one hand.

The Collector's Edition also offers the Blood Dragon Armour and Stone Prisoner launch DLC that we told you about last week.

The deal is announced as BioWare releases an impressive CGI launch trailer for Dragon Age: Origins, which arrives in full on 6th November.

Head over to Eurogamer TV to watch the stirring cinematic in HD.
