Activision is up to it usual Call of Duty special edition magic by announcing that gamers who order the Care Package Edition will get the MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone, as well as announcing the Hardened Edition as well.
The release of the sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops is approaching and with it are the traditional announcements surrounding what spending a few extra dollars on the game can get the consumer. As it turns out, Activision is hoping that the legions of fans of the series will be looking to invest in upgrading their copies by enticing them with a ton of in-game and real world content.
The Black Ops 2 Care Package Edition is the ‘piece de resistance’ for the hardcore fans of the series as it comes with more content than any other edition of the game on offer.
To start off with, the Care Package comes in a care package; the box is painted black with a silver Elite logo and orange highlights around the box itself – its best the reader see a picture themselves.
Inside the box will be a copy of the game, Black Ops 2, and a plethora of in-game content. The Nuketown Zombies Bonus Map as well as the standard Nuketown Map for competitive multiplayer action as well.
Weapon Camo will also be unlocked from the get-go and two Challenge Coins for unlocking exclusive content. Backgrounds for Killcam will also be unlocked by anyone who purchases the Care Package Edition as well as the game’s Soundtrack.
For Xbox 360 users there are two exclusive in-game/console goodies to be had, namely the CLAW Avatar prop and the Zombies Avatar Costume.
As for the PlayStation 3 version, there will be two dynamic themes; the first one will be a theme from the Turbine map and the second will be a dynamic Zombies theme.
But all of these can be had in the less expensive, Hardened Edition as well. So what is it that will seduce gamers into spending a little extra on the Care Package Edition we hear you ask? Well, that certain something would be the Remote Controlled MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone, which players can fly around their house or terrorize their neighbours with if they choose to do so.
The inclusion of the drone follows the RC-XD from Black Ops and it seems Treyarch seem to have a way with convincing Activision to include a few toys in their special editions.
But what about the readers; will you be putting up the extra money for one of the special editions or is the standard game enough to keep you satisfied, or are you done with the Call of Duty series as whole? Let us know in the comments section below.
