Ubisoft has revealed the full details on the Far Cry 4 Collector's Edition. The so-called "Kyrat Edition" comes with several exclusive extras but will cost you some serious cash.
The $129.99 edition includes a 7.9 inch figurine of Pagan Min, the main villain. He's seated on an rock throne carved into the shape of an elephant. A sword, RPG and rifle rest on the side of the throne, just to drive home Pagan Min's violent nature.
Also included in the bundle is a 16.5 x 30 inch poster. The stylized poster's text isn't fully visible but this is apparently some kind of propaganda for Pagan Min.
Ubisoft threw in a travel journal and a map, too. They don't explain the journal at all so I'm not sure whether it's supposed to be a written account from a character's perspective or a blank book for you to record your own journeys in. I doubt your purchase hinges on that particular item, though.
A copy of Far Cry 4 is obviously part of the Kyrat Edition, too. It's the Limited Edition of the game with three missions involving Hurk, the monkey exploder from Far Cry 3. These missions give you access to a harpoon gun called the Impaler.
The Kyrat Edition is available on all of Far Cry 4's platforms: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC. You can find the list of participating retailers at Far Cry 4's website.
If you don't want a bunch of random knick-knacks but you do want to throw a lot of money at Far Cry 4, note that you have another Collector's Edition to choose from. The Ubi Shop offers an $89.99 Gold Edition exclusively for digital download on PC. This package is said to include "additional missions, weapons and much more" - which might be more meaningful to you than a statue or poster. Still, the Ubi Shop listing's slim on details so you should probably hold off on pre-ordering until Ubisoft shares some additional information.
Far Cry 4 centers around Ajay Ghale, a man who travels to the Himalayas to scatters his mother's ashes. He soon becomes wrapped up in a war against self-appointed king Pagan Min. The usual sandbox gameplay of the Far Cry series intact, though with new features like wingsuits and explosive elephants. Instead of offering stand-alone co-op missions, the game allows players to jump into each other's campaigns.
Ubisoft will launch FC4 on all platforms on November 18th. Their efforts to rustle up pre-orders have been very successful thus far. Analysts are currently projecting FC4 to be one of the top 5 sellers of this Fall.
