Call of Duty: Ghosts getting two collector's editions

[UPDATE] Hardened and Prestige premium bundles confirmed.

by

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Activision confirmed the Call of Duty: Ghosts Hardened and Prestige collector's editions.

The original story is below.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch this November with two collector's editions, according to leaked promotional material obtained by a NeoGAF user.

A poster for the premium bundles reveals Hardened and Prestige versions of the game.

The Hardened package will reportedly contain a steelbook case, a Ghosts-themed paracord strap, the game's soundtrack, and the previously announced Free Fall multiplayer map.

The poster also shows that the Call of Duty: Ghosts Hardened edition will include access to the game's season pass, said to include four expansion packs.

The Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige bundle will reportedly include everything from the Hardened pack, as well as a 1080p tactical camera and a carrying case for it. Pricing information for both packs was not mentioned.

Developer Infinity Ward yesterday suggested a Call of Duty: Ghosts collector's edition was on the way, asking fans on Facebook what they would like to see included in such a bundle.

Infinity Ward will reveal the multiplayer component for Call of Duty: Ghosts today during a presentation in Los Angeles beginning at 1:30 EDT. GameSpot will carry a live-stream of the multiplayer event.

Activision has previously announced that multiplayer maps in Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature dynamic elements, such as earthquakes and floods, with player actions affecting the outcomes of these events. In addition, the game's multiplayer mode will feature a character customization system.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches November 5 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are also in development. All downloadable content for the game will be available first on Xbox platforms.

Included season pass in both editions.

Smart move. Much better than the bullshit CE of BLOPS 2, something fans can use.

Most of the time I look forward to the CE. But I feel like Black Ops 2 was completely botched and I don't feel comfortable ponying over that much cash now.

One thing is for sure, regardless of how much I like or dislike CoD...they have some neat collector's editions.

I want that paracord so much. Combined with the season pass, looks like I'll be grabbing the Hardened Edition.

The camera picture quality is actually not bad. The Jake and Amir video with it looks pretty good.

Where are the digital pre-orders? I want to pre-order the digital "Hardened" Edition for XOne.

Call of Duty Ghosts, Now Introducing "cranked" which for legal reasons has nothing to do with the film Crank starring Jason Statham whereby you die if you stop doing andrenalin based activities... Good one Infinity Ward!

Meh, All the talent fled to EA, Infinity Ward is a false identity, Battlefield and Titanfall all the way even if it means using Origin, ill #DealtWithIt in the name of better FPS.

how many players online does this game support? If it's still only 18 max,  that sucks,  and I'll become a Battlefield only player.    They need massive big team battles.

Four things come to mind after watching the multiplayer reveal:


1. I'm undecided about purchasing Ghosts (and if I do, it'll be for the multiplayer), but regardless, I'm not expecting it to be as different as they're saying it is.

2. Battlefield 4 will probably be a better game.

3. Speaking of Battlefield...Ghosts has player-triggered map changes, like creating new cover. That seems to ring a bell...

4. Knee-sliding will replace drop-shotting and perhaps even quick-scoping as the new annoying COD tactic.

Probably a dumb question..but will sony and everybody else be getting the short end of the stick again? I find it dumb to have a season pass across all platforms even tho xbox is gunna get content first.

I just saw this on there live website expo of the edition and stash cam i have to say that  was rather stupid. And pathetic.

As for this Call of Duty edition not worth a cash if you even have the cash.

Sounds like Gearbox as far as you get access to 4 DLC pack with a "Season Pass".  Guessing when they release more you get to pay for those as well.  Here, take a season pass, once we are past 4 DLC's, buy the rest jackass.

Hey Activision/Infinity Ward/Treyarch! I have an idea for you.


Previously map creation was the purview of developers and modders. But what if it was available to anyone? What if anyone could create a Call Of Duty map? Think about it. This would do two things: a) provide the series with some sorely needed change and innovation, and b) eliminate the problem plaguing games like MW3--lousy maps. Tired of maps that facilitate camping? Design your own and share it with the gaming community.


Activision/Infinity Ward/Treyarch, I propose to you:


Call Of Duty: Minecraft Edition. It would probably have to have Minecraft-y graphics, but who cares? You could still have authentic guns and authentic/fancy equipment. You could even still have killstreaks or scorestreaks if you want. But the maps...to borrow an overused marketing line, you are only limited by your imagination.

They will have a very hard time impressing me more than BF4 did at E3.

so wait this game will get released to current gen and next gen? 

so basicly you're buying the same piece of shit for no improvements for 110$

@Quietpower09 Or at least some real gear for your German Shepherd. That dog would look even more bad @$$.

@roman4545 No, but there's gonna be a limited edition, at the same price as the standard edition and it won't be that limited. You'll get a gun, a perk or something and a day one dlc and you'll be glad about it or so help you God...

@SteamyPotatoes 

yep exactly, its the truth and the truth my hurt or suck.. but people always seem to forget the two main dudes from IW don't even work for them. I think they helped in part of mw2 but that was it. someone will correct me if Im wrong.

@ChiefFreeman 

that definitely hasn't changed, its still the little 9 vs  9 battles which I think is hilarious because how could 9 vs 9 be called online warfare. That nothing more than a little death match

@Riddick123 Season passes do not include "All DLC" unless it speficially tells you it includes "All DLC".

Season passes are just an option for people who expect to be buying multiple DLC packs, so they can get it at a discount.

@AllForJMJ they won't like that 

they make a bucketload of money just by selling crappy 5 mintues of work maps

@xsonicchaos these are in-game limited items for probably on launch copies... but im only talking about really limited edition or collectors edition that comes with a artbook, soundtrack etc.....

Battlefield franchise need something like that.... was there even a special thing for Battlefield anyway ?  Cmon EA... why dont you sweeten the pot of gold for us

@djpetitte @ChiefFreeman 

The maps are too small for more players. Unless you want the maps so clustered and chaotic with too many players which would be stupid. 

AllForJMJ

But don't you think they could make bucketloads of money by allowing anyone to create maps?
