Even though Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed to 2013, the longer wait at least gives you extra time to save up for the impressive-looking collector’s edition. Aside from in-game content and characters, the full box set also includes one of the most things from the Alien film franchise, the Powerloader exo-suit.
Gearbox Software is throwing in quite a bit of content and goodies—but considering the $100 price tag, every extra pack-in helps. Here’s a list of everything you’ll get with your copy of the game:
- Powerloader figurine with “Xeno Hive” box
- Playable multiplayer Aliens characters: Private Hudson, Corporal Hicks, Private Drake, and Sergeant Apone
- Ripley’s Flamethrower
- Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers
- Phase Plasma Rifle
- USCM Academy firing range mission level
- Official USCM dossier
- Character customization options (?)
Of course, if you don’t have the scratch for a $100 collector’s set, just pre-order the game. That alone gets you Ripley’s flamethrower, the four Aliens cast members, and those extra character customization options.
