SWTOR – Contents of the collector’s edition, and digital editions.

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:

  • Exclusive Gentle Giant Darth Malgus statue
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic game disks in collectible metal case
  • The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural annotated by Satele Shan
  • The Old Republic Galaxy map
  • Custom Security Authentication Key
  • Music of Star Wars: The Old Republic CD
  • High-quality Collector’s Edition box
  • It also contains the following digital items –Mouse Droid. As far as I can tell the mouse droid is a pet.
  • Collector’s Edition Store. This store – is for cosmetic things like clothes for your companion, social items and appearance things for your companion.
  • 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.
