I know I said we would be talking some about the reviews… but they’ve shown us exactly what the different versions of SWTOR contain. So we’ll post more tomorrow on the reviews.
Here’s what the different pre orders contain.
STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC LIMITED COLLECTOR’S EDITION INCLUDES:
A video of the ‘opening’ of the collectors edition can be found here – http://www.swtor.com/media/trailers/collectors-edition-unboxing-video
The collectors editions are pretty scarce. Amazon doesn’t have any but surprisingly Wal-Mart has it – http://www.walmart.com/ip/Star-Wars-The-Old-Republic-Collector-s-Edition-PC-Mac/17117741
The Collector’s Edition also includes everything we have listed below (in the other editions).
Digital Deluxe Edition: I think Origin may be the only one that has this edition.
These items are included as bonuses for the Digital Deluxe Edition.
- Flare Gun. Shoots a flare.
- Training Droid. A small hover droid – marks your target.
- HoloDancer. A portable holodancer you can put on the ground – and they will start dancing… hmm seems like a lag waste to me, but oh well.
- HoloCam. The HoloCam lets you take hi rez screenshots.
- STAP. The STAP, or Single Trooper Aerial Platform, is a custom-skinned vehicle. This is available once you reach the appropriate level. Of all the items this is important because vehicles cost big bucks – this would allow you to save the 25k or so credits you would be spending otherwise.
All preorders get a colored stone you can put in your lightsaber, blasters.
And of course everyone gets early access. Not much has been said about early access – usually it is just a few days but who knows.
