The Horizon Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition is the definitive version of Guerilla Games’ critically acclaimed new PlayStation 4 exclusive that distinguishes itself as a worthwhile splurge for gamers and collectible enthusiasts.
So what make the comparatively lavish Horizon Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition so craveable? For starters, the set comes with a veritable bounty of digital and physical extras that are certain to appeal to fans of Sony’s new-fangled flagship franchise. Downloadable bonuses include an exclusive PlayStation 4 dynamic theme as well as an assortment of in-game wearables (like the Carja Storm Ranger Armor and Banuk Trailblazer Armor), weapons (namely the Carja Striker Bow and Banuk Culling Bow), and add-ons packs stuffed with useful resources (including the Carja Trader Pack, Banuk Traveler Pack, Nora Keeper Pack, and Nora Machine Trapper Pack) which will help players gain a vital advantage with surviving and mastering the game’s relentlessly savage world.
While the digital items that accompany the Horizon Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition help to justify the set’s significantly higher price tag relative to the standard and deluxe editions, it’s the physical items that prove to be the most compelling additions by far. Pack-ins include a special Steelbook metal disc case, 48-page hardcover book filled with art inspired by the game, as well as a stunning statue of the game’s lead, Aloy, crafted by renown collectible manufacturer, Gentle Giant. A clear selling point for many, the intricately sculpted and painted piece stands roughly 9.5 inches tall and delivers powerfully pleasing depiction of Horizon Zero Dawn’s intrepid heroine standing atop the remains of the mechanical beast she has slain with arrows. Minute details like the freckles on Aloy’s face are faithfully represented, as are many of the finer details of her outfit and bow. Overall, the statue’s authenticity and quality should help it to earn display space on the shelves of the game’s most dedicated fans.
The Horizon Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition is the fittingly grand welcome to Sony’s exclusive new franchise. The premium version released on February 28th alongside the standard physical, digital, digital deluxe variants at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $119.99 USD.
