There will be more than one way to purchase Killzone 3 come late February of next year. Sony’s announced today that Killzone 3 will also be available in a limited Helghast Edition alongside the standard edition.

The Helghast Edition is BIG. It includes:

  • Authentic Helghast Helmet replica opens to reveal art book, Super Voucher and Killzone 3 game.
  • Exclusive Cloaking Helghast Marksman action figure is 6.5” tall with multiple articulation points and will not be sold at retail.
  • Includes bonus video content giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game.
  • Exclusive art book featuring imagery from the Killzone universe.
  • Super Voucher includes:
    • Killzone 3 soundtrack and PS3 Dynamic Theme.
    • Retro Map Pack featuring two of the most popular multiplayer maps from Killzone 2.
    • Double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.
    • Full access to all weapons and abilities during the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.

There’s a lot to love about the Helghast Edition, but it comes at a price. It’ll go for $129.99 when it launches on February 22, 2011.

    I’m almost tempted to get this. Sure it’s 110% more than the game itself but if you’re a true fan a little measly $70 more shouldn’t stand in your way.

    I’m not all that jazzed about the bust but I like the action figure, soundtrack and the art book definitely have my interest. And it’s good that they’re promoting this now so people can save up for it. I might actually put away a few bucks and get this when it comes out.
