Here’s what you’ll get in the Just Cause 3 collector’s edition

just cause 3 collectors edition
Video game collector’s editions tend to include a few cool shelf pieces that you’ll cherish for years to come, as well as a bunch of useless junk that will never leave the box. Square Enix has taken the initiative to make sure this is no longer the case, and the publisher has revealed the fan-voted items that will be included in the collector’s edition of Just Cause 3.

The Just Cause 3 collector’s edition’s “centerpiece” is a 15-inch replica of protagonist Rico’s grappling hook, and the $110 bundle also includes a 24×24 “poster map of the Mediterranean archipelago of Medici,” as well as a hardcover art book. Digital content appears to be limited to the “Weaponized Vehicle Pack.”

“Out of all the items, we offered, the grappling hook was by far the most popular,” said Square Enix senior product marketing manager Damian Garcia. This is especially interesting, considering that the grappling hook was absent from the promotional image that showed off potential items.

The final collector’s edition items were just a tiny portion of what Square Enix made available for voting back in March. Other potential items included diecast replica vehicles from the game (1:32 scale), a backpack, a “Rico diorama,” a steelbook, and my personal favorite: a destructible general statue and puzzle with a “magnetic satchel charge.”

This isn’t the first time Square Enix has given fans the chance to vote on collector’s edition items. Right now, you can vote on the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided collector’s edition, which could include a replica Adam Jensen bust statue, a metal sign, or even a lunch box. Oddly, Rise of the Tomb Raider, arguably the publisher’s biggest title this year, has no collector’s edition announced at this point, even though it releases before both Deus Ex and Just Cause 3.

Just Cause 3 arrives December 1 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
