Bethesda unveils The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim collector’s edition

Submitted by on Tuesday, 9 August 20113 Comments

Bethesda Softworks officially unveiled the package of goodies that are to be included in the collector’s edition of their forthcoming massive RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

For those passionate Elder Scrolls fans out there a few shimmering extras await you in what is being billed as an ‘extremely limited’ collector’s edition. Have a look.

  • Alduin Statue. Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collector’s only statue stands 30.5cm 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 the game’s many dragon walls that teach the player the lethal language of dragons.
  • The Art of Skyrim’ Official Art Book. Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-colour illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 23.8cm x 30.8cm 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.
  • ‘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.

All of this can be yours for £129.99/$149.99.

Most of the time it’s tough to justify spending an inordinate amount of money on a collector’s edition but considering the potential sum of hours that may be logged with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim perhaps parting ways with a little extra cash wouldn’t be completely irresponsible.

What do you think? Is it worth it?

If you aren’t already pumped for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim then perhaps the trailer below can help rectify that.
