Max Payne 3 won't be out until March 2012, but you'll only have until January 15 to pre-order the newly announced Special Edition. Despite the name, it's really the equivalent of a Collector's Edition, given the sort of content included.
For $100 ($99.99 USD), the Special Edition bundles together the following mix of goodies:
- A copy of Max Payne 3 (Of course.)
- 10" tall Collectible Max Payne 3 Statue, created by TriForce and Rockstar
- Original Still Life Art Prints depicting Max's "inner demons and vices"
- Copper and brass-plated iron Bullet Keychains with screw-off back
- Classic Multiplayer Character Pack featuring eight playable characters for MP:
- Includes Mona Sax and Vladimir Lem from Max Payne and Max Payne 2
- Disorderly Conduct Multiplayer Weapons Pack, also for multiplayer:
- Hammerhead Auto Shotgun
- G9 Grenade Launcher
- Molotov cocktail
- Max Payne 3 Official Soundtrack (instrumental score)
Not a bad deal for $100, right? This version is available for all three platforms -- just remember to pre-order before the cutoff date. My guess? They're not mass producing it like most companies, so the two month period prior to release may be for filling orders.
