Gears Of War 3 Epic Edition Confirmed!


I don't often post about Collectors Editions towards video games, but for this one I feel that its appropriate considering I am totally buying this for 100 Euro's. Mad you might call me? Insane maybe? Well I dont care, you see I have been playing the Gear Of War series since November 2008 and ever since it quickly became my favourite game ever, then it became an obsession. 


Prowling around the internet trying to find anything that gave me clues or insight to the Gears Of War storyline I found myself buying books and comics on the franchise and the occasional figure of my favourite character. But thats what is awesome about being involved in a franchise, you buy everything. You may look at me and say I am crazy but when a game with those extra bit of something comes around and starts tickling your wallet you almost cant refuse. You love the world so why not? 


With the finishing of the Beta today this announcement sure is a good one with all these goodies in the box which include: 
Limited Edition ($79.99 US) – The must-have for fans who want to celebrate the culmination of the trilogy, the Limited Edition includes:
• An Octus Award Box with Octus Service Medal – A 1:1 match in size and weight, this zinc-alloy cog-shaped medal replicates the award given to Adam Fenix in recognition of his work on the Hammer of Dawn. [Dimensions: 77 mm (3 in.) x 10 mm (0.4 in.)
• Exclusive Unlockable Adam Fenix Multiplayer Character – Each Octus Service Medal replica is engraved with a unique Xbox LIVE code that is the only way to unlock Adam Fenix in multiplayer.
• A fabric COG Flag – Proud colors that once flew above the House of Sovereigns.
• The personal effects of Adam Fenix, including his "Last Will and Testament," the initial Hammer of Dawn schematic, and other Fenix family mementos.
Epic Edition ($149.99 US) – The ultimate collection for hardcore fans who can't get enough "Gears of War 3," the Epic Edition includes:
• A Limited Edition Marcus Fenix Statue – Designed by Epic Games Art Director Chris Perna and expertly crafted by the artisans at Triforce, this fine PVC statue collectible makes the ultimate living room centerpiece for any true "Gears" fan. [Dimensions: height 285 mm (11.2 in.), diameter 225 mm (8.9 in. Weight: 1.7 kg (3.7 lb.)
• 
The Art and Design of Gears of War by Tom Bissell - Through unprecedented access to the Epic Games team, acclaimed author Tom Bissell (Extra Lives) gives readers an incisive behind-the-scenes glimpse into one of the most celebrated sagas in video game history with 96 pages of interviews, photos, concept artwork and more.
• Infected Omen Weapon Pack — Custom multiplayer skins for the game's five starting weapons; Lancer, Retro Lancer, Hammerburst, Sawed-off Shotgun, and Gnasher Shotgun.
• All the contents of the "
Gears of War 3" Limited Edition.
The awesome thing about this statue is that its designed by Epic Games Art Director Chris Perna so you  know its in awesome quality, not only that Project Triforce who have been making Gears Of War replicas for a while now are making these beauties. I am loving the whole prospect of Adam Fenix becoming the main focus of the Epic Edition. Adam is a real cool character from the comics and especially from the books and there is a lot of mystery following this guy since the ending of Gears 2. I am sure we'll find answers in the final game. 

Beta impressions will be up soon with gameplay and some awesome kills by yours truly.

As Marcus Fenix would say "SWEEEET"!!! The beta for Gears of War 3 was prime. This game will be worth a limited collectible edition.
