A new Collector’s Edition has been announced for Battlefield 1, but it does not come with the actual game.
The Amazon-exclusive Collector’s Edition comes with a 14-inch soldier statue, a steel book case, a cloth propaganda poster, an emblem patch, a deck of cards, and a messenger pigeon tube containing DLC content. The set will cost $130, but does not come with the actual game. The same bundle can be purchased with the game, but it will cost an additional $60.
For those who still want more, a Deluxe version of the Collector’s Edition can be picked up as well. The Deluxe version will include all of the items listed above, as well as themed weapons and vehicles, five Battlepacks, and three-day early access to the game. The Deluxe edition will run gamers $210.
In a Twitch interview, Battlefield community manager for Germany, Sebastian Moritz, announced that the Battlefield 1 open beta will begin sometime shortly after this year’s Gamescom. It was also revealed that Battlefield Insiders will get early access to the open beta. Gamescom will take place from August 17th to August 21st. This means the open beta should take place in late August / early September.
Battlefield 1 will release on October 21st. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
