We've seen outrageous one-of-a-kind collector's editions before, but the studio that built Halo has plans to outdo them. The Destiny "Get Your Ass to Mars" Collector's Edition was announced today on, oh hey April 1. Strange that they chose a date known for chicanery for a perfectly truthful announcement, but oh well.
According to the studio, the CE will offer you a chance to become a Destiny character yourself. You'll get to chose between the Awoken and the EXO and undergo a series of surgeries to transform yourself into your character. Then you'll be given a set of armor, a nice cape or cloak, and put into suspended animation while Bungie figures out how to send you to another planet. Presumably Mars, which you apparently have to take your ass to.
The studio warns that supplies will be limited, but it will go for a handsome price tag of $7 billion. You'll be the envy of all the deranged billionaires. The announcement did not include word of whether the CE includes the game. Some don't.
“At Bungie, we’re always looking for exciting ways to immerse players in our fiction and our worlds,” said Bungie COO Pete Parsons. “What better way to maximize the potential of our passionate community than to physically alter and augment their frail human forms and fire the bravest and wealthiest among them into the cold and unforgiving vacuum of space?”
