Only one word can properly describe the Splinter Cell: Blacklist Paladin Collector’s Edition – madness.
Announced recently, the Paladin Collector’s Edition will feature the game, the Billionaire’s Yacht co-op map and Upper Echelon Pack (featuring the Dead Coast co-op map and in-game items like the Gold Sonar Goggles and Upper Echelon Suit) and an 88-page limited edition graphic novel from Eisner nominated writer Nathan Edmondson. But that’s not the mind-melting part.
No, that would be the 3-channel, twin engine, remote controlled Paladin that comes with the game. We repeat: This collector’s edition features a friggin’ military level airplane that actually flies. Of course, this is what Sam Fisher and Co. use as their base of operations so it has some tie-in to the game. But seriously, dear lord.
The Paladin Collector’s Edition will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 20th in North America and Latin America only. It will be priced at an exotic $169.99.
