At this point, Ken Levine is more than a game designer. Ever since the BioShock franchise took off he’s become something of a figurehead for these games and of developer Irrational Games as a whole. Thus, it just makes sense that he’d personally detail the upcoming special edition releases of BioShock Infinite.
In a letter to fans posted to the Irrational Games website, Levine unveils both the Ultimate and Premium Songbird editions of the game. The Premium Songbird Edition, which is currently available for pre-order at $80, includes the following bonus items:
- A 3-inch baby version keychain of the sold-out Murder of Crows vigor bottle replica.
- A 5 x 7-inch lithograph by Jorge Lacera.
- A 25 millimeter, resin-cast Handyman miniature from the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game by Plaid Hat Games, makers of Summoner Wars.
- A mini art book, full of BioShock Infinite concept art and commentary, with a hand-distressed cover.
- Various digital goodies: exclusive in-game gear, a digital soundtrack, and platform specific downloadable content (Avatar costumes for Xbox 360, and Themes for PC and PlayStation 3).
