Collector's Editions of games are nothing new - usually you get access to additonal DLC and exclusive extras like a figuirine, game map or some other kind of tat.
Sometimes big games like Call of Duty include a fully functional drone or car and the quality of the extras can be pretty impressive - like the recent addition of a remote-controlled Claptrap to the next gen release of the Borderlands collection. There are special editions, and there's the Apocalypse Edition of Dying Light.
Limited to just one copy and only available through GAME in the UK, this pack is absolutely insane. It not only includes the fairly standard stuff like 4 steelbook copies of the game, and Xbox One to play it, Razer Tiamat headphones and night vision goggles (plus nappies) but also parkour lessons and a trip to Poland to meet the team who made the game!
That's not all, you'll also get a custom build 'Zombie-Proof Shelter'! It will be put together byfolks at Tiger Log Cabinswho actually have a customised Zombie Fortification Cabin whichis is guaranteed for 10 years against zombie incursion. Here's what it looks like.
The specs for the place include:
-10 YEAR ANTI ZOMBIE GUARANTEE*.
- Upper deck with 360deg vantage point + escape hatch
- Re-enforced slit windows, walls and doors
- Barbed wire surround
- Arsenal storage unit for weaponry (guns not included)
- Garden Section to grow vegetables
- Toilet System
- Kitchen Area with Microwave
- Living area with TV, Xbox and Sound system Turntables
Do note that the company will require medical evidence of the presence of a real zombie should you wish to claim under the 10 year zombie guarantee. And you should absolutely read the customer reviews.
The full extent of this collector's set is pretty ridiculous, and obviously for someone who not only expects to love the game but also has a lot of expendable cash. The cabin itself costs close to €90 grand and there are some one of a kind extras which would certainly make it worthwhile for that kind of person - though you'd also have to make sure that you were fit enough to get the most out of the parkour lessons. Still, its a good way for Techland to pick up some extra cash, and for Tiger Log Cabins and GAME to get some helpful publicity.
