View Full Version : Ultimate Collector's Edition - Box?

Howdy! I preordered the Ultimate collector's edition and I'm frankly curious and excited. I searched around quite a bit on Google and the search function here and kept getting muddled. I've got a few questions about the physical box, if anyone can offer some help?


Will the box we receive hold everything?
Does the box have unique art?
What is the box made out of? When they said box, I thought like the loot chest from Gearbox, but it looks cardboard-y.


I ask because I really enjoy displaying my purchases, and I wouldn't mind some kind of classy box to go with my Hellbug statue.

Thanks so much for any help!

Hey, thanks! That's a lot better than the preorder picture on the GameStop website, and I don't think the one on Defiance's website showed the box that clearly. With the beveled edges and window in the front, that kinda looks like it might be hard plastic to me! *crosses fingers and hopes fervently*.

I do hope I'm not being inappropriate when I say "bump!" I'm hoping to get some actual confirmation as to the box :D

I too have the Ultimate Edition, and would like to know what the box itself looks like. I will be watching this thread closely, in hopes of a answer.

Just another question that needs an answer, but will be ignored.

in my opinion they should do an "unboxing" of the collector edition/ultimate edition. People are really interested in seeing what they've purchased.

Y'know, the weird thing is that when I click on the "PS3" button, it tries to load a PS3 page, fails, and goes back to the PC page o.O

Thanks. I'm afraid that still doesn't offer any details. It's not that it's a dealbreaker for me if it's just a cardboard box, I was just hopin' against hope that it would be a storage and display container in which I could carry or keep the game and its materials, since I'll be moving in a few months and want to make sure everything stays together.

If you look at that same PS3 page instead of clicking the view, just look at the picture there which ironically shows you a bigger version of the box. It's hard to tell but to me it looks like it might be plastic due to the details on the lid which looks like it has little ridges on it.

Assume it is cardboard and hope for plastic. :)

That was pretty much my line of reasoning too!

I'm certainly not going to complain about cardboard. This is still much better than my BioShock Infinite preorder's goodies. It's just...gawd, it'd be so wonderful to have a classy storage chest!

If that's a closeup, I want to see the prescription on the glasses you were wearing when you looked at that. O.o

It is probably a sturdy, well constructed box with a plastic slipcase/cover.

Looking at the picture it seems there might be a cutout to view the Hellbug in the box - the plastic slipcase/cover would form a window pane over this for protection.

I am not sure that the bag will be included inside the box as it is an "extra" to the box in the UE edition.

Still, not long until we find out - but an unboxing video would be nice as I hope they will soon be shipping to retailers as launch is only two weeks aways...

What sucks is, I will know about a week or more before the game launches, but wont be able to say anything( or post the pics I will take of it lol). My friend is a GS store manager, He let me see both of my preorders for Aliens:Colonial marines and the Tomb raider CE games/boxes "about a week or more" before each launched, and I could pick them up. For example,the new Walking Dead game has been in Gamestop's back room for nearly 10 days now. Launches this Tuesday.

Yeh, would love to see an unboxing, maybe they could sort one out for the live streams on Friday's.
