Days Gone Collector’s Edition UnboxedMay 12, 2019
The Days Gone Collector’s Edition is a fittingly loot-filled way for gamers on PlayStation 4 to celebrate the debut of Sony’s exclusive post-apocalyptic survival horror game. In the tradition of “AAA” PlayStation exclusives, like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man, the Days Gone Collector’s Edition comes with a covetable stash of digital and physical extras. Buyers will find a card with a code to download an assortment of bonus content, which includes the ‘Monkey Wrench’ skill early unlock, three ‘Drifter’ motorcycle skins, a selection of music, digital art book (by Dark Horse Comics), and the ‘Deacon vs. The Horde’ dynamic theme. Eager gamers who pre-ordered the Days Gone Collector’s Edition also received the ‘Nitrous’, ‘Shroud’, and ‘Gas Tank’ upgrades as well as the ‘Drifter’ crossbow early unlock.
The Days Gone Collector’s Edition comes with the requisite stash of exclusive physical extras as well. Items include a custom metallic disc case (emblazoned with the game’s logo and ‘Mongrels’ insignia), 48-page miniature art book (by Dark Horse Comics), an audio disc with original music from the game, a set of 4 decals, 6 wearable collector’s pins, and a sew-on Days Gone patch. Rounding out the list of items is a special statue produced by Gentle Giant. The (approximately 6-inch tall by 9-inch wide) piece leverages its faithful sculpture and paint application to depict the game’s lead protagonist, Deacon St. John, sitting beside his indispensable motorcycle. Although the Days Gone Collector’s Edition is more expensive than the game’s other SKUs, it’s a justifiable splurge for any gaming collector and a clear must-have for PlayStation fans.
