The release line up for the end of this year is nothing short of manic! For collectors it's even worse. Want to know all the collectors editions coming up so that you came choose which you want? Well, I've done my best to round up all the announced collector's editions and their prices in one place for you.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 Doflamingo Edition
August 25th (US) 28th (UK)
PlayStation 4
Zavvi
£69.99
This one doesn't seem to be exclusive to Zavvi as Amazon also have it listed, however Amazon don't have it in stock any more so seems like this one might be pretty high in demand! This is yet another Collectors Edition that I am unable to find a US release for. This edition comes with:

August 30th (US) 28th (UK)

This one is not exclusive as I have seen Zavvi list it also. It is however unavailable to Xbox users and the Boba Fett Figure itself is exclusive to this bundle.

$99.99/£99.99

You're gonna have to be lucky with this one as it seems it is already sold out. You can still get the Xbox One version in the US at Gamestop, but that's all I could find. In the UK this edition is exclusive to GAME so keep an eye out there for any potential chances at nabbing one.

Not quite a collectors edition in the traditional sense, but this bundle offered by GAME offers a decent amount of value if you are looking to have every collectors item there is for the upcoming blockbuster. By buying this you will also end up with 2 copies of the game.

Mad Max Ripper Special Editon
September 1st (US/UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
GAME XBI/PS4 (UK)
£48.99

Yep, another special edition that doesn't seem to be making its way to the states. It is also yet another one that is exclusive to game. One thing that is worth noting here is the wording "metal case" meaning it probably isn't a Steelbook. If you look VERY closely at the picture as well you can just make out something on the upper part of the spine. Chances are we are looking at a MetalPak, especially when you look at WB Games recent track record of Special Editions.

•Limited Special Edition Metal Case and Game Disc
•The Ripper - Fully Upgradable Magnum Opus Car Body DLC
•Unique, Numbered Comic Poster by Simon Colby



Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition
September 15th  (US/UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
GAME XB1/PS4 (UK) Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US)
$59.99/£46.99

I find the name of this edition quite humorous considering our resident hardcore Destiny player's disgruntlement over the upcoming changes to legendaries. That aside this edition isn't that special and is simply just a complete edition of the game at retail.

•Destiny: The Taken King
•Destiny
•Destiny: The Dark Below
•Destiny: House of Wolves



Destiny: The Taken King Collectors Edtion
September 15th (US/UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
GAME XB1/PS4 (UK) Gamestop XB1/PS4  (US)
£79.99/$79.99

This is the edition collectors will want! Some might be upset that they will be re-buying the original game and the first two expansions again but the physical content on offer here is pretty cool! In the US it is exclusive to Gamestop and it is constantly falling in and out of stock. In the UK it is exclusive to GAME and is still readily available.

•Destiny: The Taken King
•Destiny
•Destiny: The Dark Below
•Destiny: House of Wolves
•Modified Treasure Island Book with Intro Letter from Cayde-6
•Cayde-6’s Personal Notes and Illustrations
•Collection of Relics and Artifacts

•Upgrade your weapon arsenal with an early access weapons pack. Guardians will receive a Vanguard themed Auto Rifle, Pulse Rifle, and Side arm.
•The Taken King Collector’s Edition Digital Content: Includes three Exotic Guardian Class items featuring XP bonuses, three class-specific emotes, and three armor shaders to customize every Guardian class.



Destiny: The Taken King Console Edition
September 15th  (US/UK)
PlayStation 4
GAME (UK) Gamestop (US)
$399.99/£319.99

Arguably one of the nicest looking next generation systems, this special edition console has had a lot more effort put into it than the vanilla game's console treatment. This could be the perfect place to get a PS4 if you haven't already picked up the Metal Gear Solid one! It also comes with the entire Destiny saga so far. It is not exclusive to either of these stores.

•White PlayStation 4 with Destiny design
•Hard Disk Drive capacity 500GB
•White Dualshock 4 Controller
•Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition



Forza Motorsport 6 Ultimate Edition (Digital Only)
September 10th (US/UK)
Xbox One
Xbox One Store
$99.99/£81.99

Yes that release date it correct! If you buy this edition of the game you get to play the game a full 5 days early in the US (8 days early in the UK)! This is digital only however so physical collectors will have to wait a little long to get behind the wheel! Only other difference between this and the Deluxe Edition is it comes bundled with the Car Pass.

•Forza Motorsport 6 Early Access, Play on 10th September
•Forza Motorsport 6 VIP
•Forza Motorsport 6 Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack
•Forza Motorsport 6 Mazda MX-5
•Forza Motorsport 6 Fast and Furious Car Pack



Forza Motorsport 6 Deluxe Edition (Digital Only)
September 15th (US) 18th (UK)
Xbox One
Xbox One Store
$79.99/£65.99

Just like the Gears of War Deluxe Edition before it this one is digital only. Physical collectors will be hating Microsoft this year!

•Forza Motorsport 6
•Forza Motorsport 6 VIP
•Forza Motorsport 6 Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack
•Forza Motorsport 6 Mazda MX-5
•Forza Motorsport 6 Fast and Furious Car Pack



Forza Motorsport 6 Console Editon
September 15th (US) 18th (UK)
Xbox One
Gamestop (US) GAME (UK)
$399.99/£364.99

A somewhat plain console when compared to some others coming out this year but the sounds of the console are what really brings this console to the spotlight, in my opinion. The power button will make engine on and off noises... That's right... this console goes VROOOM! HERE is the custom sounds in action plus a full look at the console itself. It's a shame however that people who splash out the cash for this system don't get the game on the 10th like the Ultimate Edition, that would have made this console a complete package!

•Xbox One 1TB Console with Forza Motorsport 6 inspired design, complete with custom Forza sound effects.
•Forza Motorsport 6 inspired Xbox One Wireless Controller
•Forza Motorsport 6 download token.



NHL 16 Deluxe Edition
September 15th (US)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US)
$69.99

I cannot find any information on a release in the UK for this one. Not a whole lot too it either, with it simply offering you Gold packs for the HUT mode over the course of 20 weeks.

•NHL 16
•Up to $50 worth of Ultimate Team Content: 40 Gold Packs at 2 per week for 20 weeks



Skylanders Superchargers Dark Edition
September 20th (US) 25th (UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US) GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)
$99.99/$84.99

It's pretty much standard that Skylanders gets a Dark Edition with it's annual release. This year is no different! Pretty much the same deal as previous years with special dark themed characters and more characters than the standard edition. This is exclusive to GAME in the UK but not exclusive anywhere in the US.

•Skylanders SuperChargers Video Game Software
•New Portal of Power
•Dark Hot Streak Vehicle
•Dark Spitfire
•Dark Sure Shot Stealth Elf
•Dark Sea Shadow
•Kaos Trophy

PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US) GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)

FIFA 16 with Pre Order Pack
September 24th (UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One
GAME
£49.99

This is exclusive to GAME and only available in the UK. They call it a pre-order pack but it costs £5 more than the game by itself so it is simply an oddly named special edition. 

•FIFA 16 Standard Edition
•Limited Edition FIFA 16 Steelbook
•Limited Edition EA Football



FIFA 16 Deluxe Edition with Pre Order Pack
September 24th (UK)
PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US) GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)
$79.99/£69.99

Pre Ordering this edition will get you on the game 4 days early. This is available digitally but obviously you won't get the physical items. This has no exclusivity in the US but in the UK the only place to get it physical is GAME.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Special Edition
October 9th
PlayStation 4
GAME (UK)
£64.99

SteelBook fans rejoice! Yet another one for you to collect! However this seems to not be coming to the US and is exclusive to GAME in the UK. Nothing all that special about it otherwise but it is just a remaster. I'd expect more with next years Uncharted 4.

•SteelBook Case including Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
•Sticker Sheet
•The Art of The Uncharted Trilogy Artbook



Halo 5 Guardians Limited Collectors Edition
October 20th (US/UK)
Xbox One
Gamestop (US) GAME (UK)
$249.99/£199.99

It wouldn't be a mainline Halo release without a mega expensive edition now would it? There's plenty here for your money. However the copy of the game is digital and that is why this edition releases a full week early. You won't be able to play it, only pre-load it ready for the 27th. However Microsoft have said there will be a way to exchange your code for a physical copy if you wish. Details are still sparse though. No exclusivity in the States but it is exclusive to GAME in the UK.

•Halo 5 Guardians Digital Download
•Commemorative Statue of the Master Chief and Spartan Locke by TriForce
•Halo: The Fall of Reach - Animated Series
•Guardian model by Metal Earth®
•Uniquely-designed Spartan themed SteelBook®
•Spartan Locke's Classified Orders
•Dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris
•Xbox Live Gold 14-day Trial - perfect for playing with friends

Halo 5 Guardians Console Edition
October 20th (US/UK)
Xbox One
Gamestop (US) GAME (UK)
$499.99

Here it is, the first Halo Xbox One console. I'm sure we will see more throughout the course of the generation, mainly with mainline entries in the series. We had one for Halo 3, Reach, 4 and now Guardians. So this was a pretty predictable console. However that doesn't make it any less sexy! Bundled with this gorgeous looking machine you get the Limited Edition of the game, but with a digital code instead of the physical disc. However, the offer stated above may apply to this bundle too where you can swap the code for the disc, but Microsoft haven't said that officially.

•1TB custom console and controller
•Full game download of Halo 5: Guardians
•The Warzone REQ Bundle that includes 14 premium Requisition Packs
•FOTUS-class armor and multiplayer emblem
•Guardian model by Metal Earth®

October 27th (US/UK)
Xbox One
Gamestop (US) GAME (UK)
$99.99/£79.99

No more digital copy bullshit here. You get a physical disc inside your steelbook. Which does mean, however, that you won't receive your goodies a week early like the Collectors edition. Exclusive to GAME in the UK. No exclusivity in the US.

•Halo: The Fall of Reach - Animated Series
•Guardian model by Metal Earth®

•Xbox Live Gold 14-day Trial - perfect for playing with friends





Halo 5 Guardians Pink Mist Edition
October 27th (UK)
Xbox One
GAME (UK)
£449.99

This is another one that is not the traditional collector's edition. It seems to be a bundle put together by GAME and not by Microsoft themselves. It is exclusive to GAME in the UK and it looks like that is the ONLY place to get it.

    The big CoD Edition this year turned out to be a runaway hit as everywhere sold out of the edition in a matter of hours.

    November 10th (UK)
    PlayStation 4, Xbox One
    GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)
    £??

    Exclusive to GAME and seemingly UK only. This has just gone up on the website but does not yet have a price (which is odd for GAME). However I would guess it not being any more than £60, that's purely speculative though!This is good for those who want a steelbook and missed out on the Pip-boy edition!

    Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Editon
    November 10th (US/UK)
    PlayStation 4, Xbox One
    SOLD OUT WORLDWIDE
    $119.99/£99.99

    Much like the Black Ops 3 Juggernog Edition this was a huge hit and sold out almost instantly. Bethesda then ordered more to be made and they sold out just as quick. They have said they cannot manufacture any more as the load they have is putting the manufacturer at full pressure. Once again your best bet is eBay. This edition's huge selling point was the fully functional Pip-Boy that you plugged your phone into and it will interact with the game as your actual Pip-Boy!

    Rise of the Tomb Raider Limited Edition
    November 10th (US) 13th (UK)
    Xbox One
    Square Enix Store US/UK
    $149.99 £109.99

    This one seems a little sparse on the amount you get for your money, but the quality of the statue looks incredible so hopefully that is worth the asking price. Notebooks seem to be all the rage lately with Dragon Age, Far Cry 4 and Bloodborne all rocking them as well! It Wouldn't be a complete collectors edition without a steelbook either!

    Only in the UK and only at GAME. Main point here is the Steelbook, but it does come with a few other digital goodies for players to use!

    Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition
    November 17th (US) 19th (UK)
    PlayStation 4, Xbox One
    Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US) PlayStation Store (UK)
    $69.99/£64.99

    Like the Need for Speed Deluxe Edition I can find no physical release in the UK and can only find it digitally on PS4. But, again, that's likely due to the game not being up for pre order yet on Xbox. The Console (Below does come with a physical edition of this and is available in the UK, so a physical standalone release is pretty likely. No exclusivity in the US.

    November 17th (US)
    PlayStation 4, Xbox One
    Walmart XB1/PS4 
    $129.98

    EA and Walmart seem to have taken a page from Call of Duty's book with this one. Exclusive to Walmart and simply a bundle including the above Deluxe Edition and a very mini fridge inspired by Han Solo's famous role where he is embedded in carbonite. The fridge will only hold 6 cans, however it does include a warming feature to "keep your food warm".

    Yes, that's right, ANOTHER special PS4! This time Darth Vader gets his face slapped on the side of the system. It comes with a very unique looking controller and some other star wars games that are being remastered for the current gen. This has been announced for the US but hasn't had a price announced or been listed on any retailers.

    $??/£??

    Same console as above but with Disney Infinity instead (which will be a couple months old by this release). It has been announced for the US, no word on the UK. Still no word on price or location either.

    Just Cause 3 Collectors Edition
    December 1st (US/UK)
    PlayStation4, Xbox One
    Bestbuy XB1/PS4 (US) GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)
    $109.99/£64.99

    This edition was voted on by the community (me included) and, honestly, I think it's a little underwhelming. No Steelbook and the statue is of a grappling hook. Obviously some people wanted it though as it won the vote!

    •Replica Grappling Hook
    •Artbook
    •Map of Medici
    •Just Cause 3 Game
    •Weaponized Vehicle Pack

    Rainbow 6 Siege Gold Edition
    December 1st (US/UK)
    PlayStation4, Xbox One
    Gamestop XB1/PS4 (US) PlayStation Store (UK)
    $89.99/£69.99


    Ubisoft sure love Special Editions, huh? Here's the first of many and, just like Assassin's Creed, they are mainly UK editions. This is pretty basic, game and the season pass. The US have a physical edition of this while in the UK PlayStation Store is the only place to grab it. I'm sure it will be on Xbox when pre orders go live though!

    •Rainbow Six Siege
    •Season Pass



    Rainbow 6 Siege Art of Siege Edition
    December 1st (UK)
    PlayStation4, Xbox One
    GAME XB1/PS4 (UK)
    £51.99

    Not available in the states but honestly not a huge deal unless you like golden weapons and a big book to read on tactics. Only £51.99 so not bad for someone looking for something a little extra with their terrorist hunting.

    •Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege game.
    •Collector’s Box.
    •Exclusive 120-page Tactical Guide.
    •Gold Weapons Skins.



    Rainbow 6 Siege Tactical Elite Edition
    December 1st (UK)
    PlayStation4, Xbox One
    Uplay Store XB1/PS4
    £79.99

    No US release and exclusive to Uplay in the UK. However its the exact same as the above edition but with the season pass bundled. Season Pass for an extra £28 though is a pretty good deal.

    •Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege game.
    •Collector’s Box.
    •An Exclusive 120 page Tactical Guide
    •Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege Season Pass
    •DLC Pack: Gold Weapons Skins



    Rainbow 6 Siege Collectors Edition
    December 1st (US)
    PlayStation4, Xbox One
    Uplay Store XB1/PS4
    $149.99

    US only and exclusive to Uplay. This is the best edition of them all worldwide but overall it's a pretty poor show from Rainbow Six on the Special Edition front. The steelbook looks very nice and people could maybe find a use for the backpack. This is limited to 500 units as well and has been available for a month or so. So it doesn't seem hugely popular.

    •Standard Edition Game
    •Season Pass
    •Operator Backpack
    •Art of The Siege Tactical Guide
    •CTU Operators Hat
    •Steelbook
    •Compass Carbineer



    Rainbow 6 Siege Limited Edition
    December 1st (UK)
    Playstation4, Xbox One
    GAME XB1/PS4
    £49.99

    Exclusive to GAME and only in the UK. The steelbook has art on the product page but it looks like it's still in planning stages. Either way for £49.99 you aren't paying that much more for the steelbook and some animal themed weapon skins.

    •Zebra Weapon Skin
    •Snake Weapon Skin
    •Steelbook Case

    There you have it. That is all the Collectors Editions I could find for release in the US and the UK this year. Anything there take your fancy? I will keep updating this as I find more information but feel free to comment if you see something I missed!
