Killzone 3 Helghast Limited Edition Detailed

October 28, 2010 Written by Allen Tyson

Limited editions can really polarise gamers, some people love them, while others see it as a way for publishers to take our money while giving little in return. What can irritate many consumers is that the majority of limited and collector’s editions are simply shiny boxes with some minor DLC. Sony, however, always makes sure that their limited editions are truly special. The Killzone 3 Helghast Edition includes enough extra’s to make this one any easy recommendation for fans of the series.

Sony announced that The Killzone 3 Helghast Edition ($129.99) is available for preorder. This set includes some truly unique items such as a collectible replica of a Helghast Helmet containing an art book, Super Voucher (which we will detail below) and, of course, Killzone 3 with added bonus content. As an added exclusive, a Cloaking Helghast Marksman action figure created by DC Unlimited is part of the package; and it won’t be available anywhere else. Multiple retailers are getting involved in the Killzone 3 deployment by offering preorder bonuses should you choose to order from them.

Here’s the complete rundown:

Features

  • Authentic Helghast Helmet replica opens to reveal art book, Super Voucher and Killzone 3 game.
  • Exclusive Cloaking Helghast Marksman action figure is 6.5” tall with multiple articulation points and will not be sold at retail.
  • Includes bonus video content giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game.
  • Exclusive art book featuring imagery from the Killzone universe
