Indie developer Rebellion has announced that it is self-publishing a Limited Special Edition of Sniper Elite 3, exclusively for PC. The Sniper Elite 3 Limited Special Edition is being sold exclusively on Rebellion's Gamestore for $149.99 and only 1,000 copies will ever be made. So what does that net you? I'm glad you asked...
- Sniper Elite 3 PC game supplied on 2 DVDs.
- Access to ALL current and future Sniper Elite 3 PC DLC packs.
- Bespoke game tin protected by an individually numbered card sleeve.
- Wax-sealed secret dossier including: tank & weapon schematics, maps of North Africa, spotter’s guides and more!
- A5 card hand-signed by members of the Sniper Elite 3 development team.
- Limited edition t-shirt.
- Hand-illustrated playing cards representing American, British, Italian and German forces.
- A2 firing range poster.
- 6 x original Sniper Elite 3 postcards.
- Woven Sniper Elite 3 badge with heat activated adhesive backing.
- Printed Instruction manual.
At $100 more than the standard edition ($110 more with the pre-order discount), it may seem like a little much, but if you're a fan of the series, there are certainly a lot of unique goodies that may pique your interest. It's also important to keep in mind the promise of all future DLC packs, which certainly adds value; though how much is not known at this time and there's no Season Pass to provide any estimation.
Sniper Elite 3 will release on June 27 for PC worldwide, but console gamers in North America will have to wait until July 1 to grab it for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
