Gears of War 4 Collector’s Edition details revealed

Gears of War 4 Collectors Edition

It’s been 3 years since we’ve seen a Gears of War game, and to be quite honest, the last installment wasn’t very good either. Here we are now, and Gears of War 4 is set to release later this year on October 11. The story takes place 25 years after the conclusion of Marcus Fenix’s story in Gears of War 3. We see J.D. Fenix (Marcus’ son) and his friends take on a new enemy that threatens the remainder of humanity. Now what better way to welcome the series back, than to have an awesome Collector’s Edition!

Microsoft and The Coalition have revealed today the details on what is included on the Collector’s Edition. First off, it comes with an awesome 11 x 19 inch statue of J.D. Fenix on a COG bike. You also get everything that’s included on the Ultimate Edition. If you’re not sure what is in it, we’ve got you covered. It includes the following:

Five exclusive digital items as part of the Vintage VIP Pack, including the Vintage JD character skin, Vintage Gnasher and Dropshot weapon skins, Vintage JD Emblem and Vintage JD Bounty for extra XP; permanent DLC map ownership of over 24 additional maps (two per month for a year) for private play on dedicated servers; an exclusive VIP “Early Access” Playlist that grants a preview to upcoming modes, maps and variants; and six Gear Packs which unlock special character and weapon skins, equipment and abilities, and XP boosting bounties.

There’s something specific to note though about “permanent DLC map ownership.” The Coalition has decided to make all their map pack DLC’s free for everyone, but with a caveat. You won’t have access to them when you want, as the devs will be circulating the maps into rotation on public playlists, while taking the place of older maps. If you wanted to use those maps in private games, you’d have to purchase the maps separately, or in this case, get the Ultimate or Collector’s Edition.

Either way, it is a good amount of stuff that you get overall. You’re probably thinking as much as all this is great, how much will it be. Well, the Ultimate Edition will run you $100, while the Collector’s Edition is a cool $250. Oh, and I forgot to mention that with both editions, you’ll be able to play the full game on October 7th, which is 4 days before the official release. Unfortunately, this only applies to those who purchase the game digitally through Xbox Live.
