Microsoft's (and Bethesda's) show brought with it a new trailer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl, thanks to which we got to know the game's release date. Already after the presentation we got to know the game's system requirements, but the devs also revealed the special boxed and digital editions of the new S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. They are all available for pre-order, and their contents are revealed on the game's official website (and infographics on Steam).
The new game developed by GSC Game World will receive four retail editions with various bonuses. The Limited Edition, priced at $79.99, includes the standard edition's contents (steelbook, letter from the devs, stickers and a commemorative pass) and adds a map of the Zone, a poster and a keychain with a flintlock. Two boxed collector's editions complete the package with further gifts (including a stalker figurine), and in the case of the most expensive Ultimate Edition (costing $339.99) purchasers will also receive a backpack and a lamp in the form of an artifact container. The cheaper variant is an expense of $179.99. You can see all the bonuses on the graphic below.
In addition to material gifts, boxed editions will include bonuses available in digital versions of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl. The Standard and Deluxe Editions cost the same as their boxed counterparts (at least on the game's official website), offering a handful of cosmetic items and, in the case of the more expensive edition, a soundtrack and a "special bonus quest". The Ultimate Edition, on the other hand, is priced much more cheaply than the retail version for obvious reasons: for $109.99 the Deluxe Edition comes with a season pass and two story expansions.
