The price point for the Heavensward Collector’s Edition was announced today during today’s Letter from the Producer LIVE Special Edition Update stream. The physical Collector’s Edition will retail for $129.99 while digital will go for $59.99. The standard edition will be available for $39.99.
The Collector’s Edition will not be exclusive to the Square Enix Online store, however it’s noted that other retailers will only have it available in limited quantities when compared to the Square Enix store.
The physical Collector’s Edition will come with a box featuring artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, a dragon statue, an artbook, a blu-ray disc that will contain 2.55 cutscenes in addition to previous trailers that have been released and of course, the game.
In-game items that will be included in both physical and digital versions include:
- Flying Griffin Mount
- A helmet modeled after Cecil’s Dark Knight helm from FFIV
- Wind-up Kain minion
Those that pre-order the expansion will receive the Baron Circlet and Earrings and a Black Chocobo Courier minion. In addition, those that pre-order the game will get early access starting June 19th.
- Those wanting to access Ishgard in Heavensward will need to have completed the Main Scenario quests up to the last quest that will be introduced in Patch 2.55.
- Those that play on multiple platforms will have to buy the expansion for each platform they wish to play on. To get the Collector’s Edition items, you will only need to buy the CE version for one of the platforms.
- Those playing on PS3 with a 20GB HDD will want to look at upgrading to a larger HDD.
Earlier this week, an e-mail went out saying that pre-orders for Heavensward which will include the Collector’s Edition will go on sale Monday, March 16th at 11:00 am PDT on the Square Enix Online Store.
