'Battlefield 1' release news: Collector's Edition priced at $130 does not include actual game


The Collector’s Edition of “Battlefield 1” from Amazon has all the perks but without the actual game. The limited version which retails at a whopping $129.99 has been drawing much attention from gamers after it was revealed that it does not include the title itself. Fortunately, the bundle is already offered with free shipping or more qualms about it will arguably come.

The “Battlefield 1” Collector’s Edition has the following inside its premium packaging: a 14-inch statue of the main character, an exclusive Steel book, a cloth poster, a deck of playing cards, a messenger pigeon tube containing exclusive downloadable content (DLC), and a patch. As mentioned earlier, it does not include the actual game.

Meanwhile, for anyone who would like to grab both the Collector’s Edition as well as the “Battlefield 1” game, it will be up for grabs for $189.99. On top of that is the Deluxe Edition, which costs $209.99, for people who can spare an extra couple of bucks to also acquire the Early Enlister version.

Ahead of the worldwide release of “Battlefield 1,” the video game franchise has already been picked up for a TV adaptation that will mine ideas from the “Battlefield” video games. Last month, Paramount Television president Amy Powell confirmed the news via a statement received by The Hollywood Reporter.

“Paramount TV actively seeks smart content from all sectors that will resonate with audiences and translate to compelling programming,” she said. “EA’s ‘Battlefield’ has an incredibly dynamic narrative, coupled with a loyal fan base, which will allow us to bring this exciting and unique property to the small screen. We look forward to working with EA and Anonymous Content and thank Michael Sugar for his tenacity in bringing us this exciting project.”

“Battlefield 1” will be available to purchase on Oct. 21 for the Microsoft Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
