As is now the standard for these sorts of major game releases, fans have a few different purchase options available with The Phantom Pain. The physical and downloadable versions both offer a “Day 1 Edition” at the base price of $60 (or $50 for the Steam version) that includes an assortment of bonus downloadable content: Adam-ska special handgun, Personal Ballistic Shield (silver), Cardboard Box (Wetland), fatigues (Blue Urban Snake Costume), and an XP boost for Metal Gear Online. The physical version also includes a map for collectors of paper things.

There’s also a $100 collector’s edition, that appears to only be available as a physical release. In addition to the Day 1 Edition’s map, the CE also packs in a half-scale replica of Snake’s bionic arm, a collectible SteelBook, a disc that includes a behind the scenes documentary and an assortment of trailers, and a large number of DLC items.
