Killzone 3 Helghast Edition and Pre-Order Bonuses


[tab:Helghast Edition]The Helghast edition of Killzone 3 has been announced today, at a retail price of $129.99. Does the content warrant the price, though? Included is a replica collectible Helghast helmet, a 6.5″ Helghast Marksman action figure (not available in retail), an art book, a ‘super voucher’, and the game with bonus content.

The Super Voucher includes access to the in-game soundtrack, a dynamic theme, the Retro Map Pack (with 2 popular maps from Killzone 2), Double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay, and full access to all weapons and abilities in the same time span.

Pre-order bonuses are detailed in the next tab.

    I think collector’s editions shouldn’t give you multiplayer bonuses. Besides maybe map packs.

    wow what a bullsh*t package. double xp and access to all weapons for people who pay $120….needless to say i’ll be avoiding online for a bit now.

    Cool Helghast helmet, but I’d rather have it wearable than just a display.

    That helmet is awesome. Still, I never buy collectors editions. The only ones I got were the special editions of Infamous and Uncharted 2, and only cause they were exactly the same price as the standard editions.

    The helmet, the artwork and the soundtrack are great for a CE but the extra online perks is pure BS since you’re basically paying to screw over the non-CE owners.

    Have to agree that the bonus xp and perk unlocks for preorders is lame. It sets a bad precedent and I hope no one falls for it.

    Btw, this is the first bit of Killzone 3 news I havent liked. Guerilla, you’re better than that!

    What would they be falling for exactly? The chance to own a helghast helm replica and a cool figure as well as a leg up in multiplayer. I will probably buy this just for the helm and figure. I could care less about the multiplayer perks. I think the only reason someone would be upset about this is because you don’t plan to buy it and there for don’t want to be at a disadvantage against someone who will.

    I mean COD released some crappy nightvision goggles and people bought that. I think this is a good collecters set since they give you both ingame and real world bonus items.
