The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition has been officially confirmed for New Zealand, although reports are coming in that New Zealand has been allocated fewer than three hundred of the special packs.
EB Games stores have been allocated quantities based on the amount of pre-orders that they have received for the game. Some EB stores are only getting one copy of the collector’s edition.
JB Hi-fi is accepting pre-orders for the collector’s edition and is confident that they will be able to fulfil pre-orders. JB stores are telephoning customers’ orders though to their Auckland branch for stock allocation.
The fortunate Skyrim fans that do get hold of the collector’s edition will receive the following goodies with their copy of the game:
1. Alduin Statue. Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collectors only statue stands 12" tall and is made of high-quality PVC. Modelled from actual in-game 3D digital files, it showcases Alduin, the World Eater. He stands perched atop one of the game's many dragon walls, that teach players the lethal language of dragons.
2. 'The Art of Skyrim' Official Art Book. Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-colour illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 9 3/8" x 12 1/8" coffee table book showcases the characters, creatures, environments, and weaponry of Skyrim. With a foreword by game director Todd Howard and commentary from Bethesda Game Studios artists, readers will be guided through the game's iconic visual style.
3. 'The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim' DVD. This documentary DVD contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage, including interviews with the Bethesda Game Studios team as they take you from concept to creation and provide insights into the story, gameplay, setting, legacy of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and much more.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available in New Zealand for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on November 11.
