Collector’s editions of games are usually something that only the elite gamers (deep pockets) could afford – and that hasn’t changed in the recent past, BUT it’s also brought out some really wicked stuff that even the ones without deep pockets tend to dig deep to shell out. One such addition is the Splinter Cell Blacklist Collector’s Edition.
Splinter Cell Blacklist publisher Ubisoft has revealed the Collector’s Edition for the upcoming stealth game. The Paladin Multi-Mission Aircraft Edition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be priced at $169.99 and be available on August 20 (in North America and Latin America only). The box will include a copy of the game, a copy of the 88-page Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel, a poster, the “Billionaire’s Yacht” co-op map, the Upper Echelon Pack containing the “Dead Coast” co-op map as well as the Gold Sonar Goggles and Upper Echelon Suit in-game items, and a radio-controlled version of the Paladin airplane that hero Sam Fisher and his Fourth Echelon team use as their aerial base of operations. The Paladin is, according to Ubisoft, a “custom three-channel, dual-motor plane modeled after the in-game mobile headquarters.”
Yes, it actually flies.
