I love self-proclaimed ‘Game of the Year’ editions. Everybody’s doing it nowadays. Heck, sometimes they’re awarding this dubious title to two games at once. I, for one, think that this is generally a Good Thing™ as it often means that if you haven’t bought said game, you’re going to get some extra goodies at a cheaper price for having waited for the GOTY. That being said, I would probably wait until some third party decided my title was worth being anointed with such a title. Otherwise, it’s kinda like adding ‘the great’ to the end of your own name, and then you’re just begging for trouble.
Nonetheless, this here edition is a fancy-pants velvet-themed edition, and darned if I ain’t never heard of a velvet edition before. Awfully spiffy, there TopWare. Since I’ve just bought and begun playing the Two worlds that have been sequeled, this caught my eye.
Apparently it will arrive this October 18th, so bellows the hype machine. Click past the break to read the hyperbole and see some close up pics of the packaging.
Two Worlds II: Velvet Game of the Year Edition coming this October!
Including the expansion; Pirates of the Flying Fortress, which also releases this fall, Two Worlds II: GOTY hits shelves with a grandiose entrance!
Las Vegas, Nevada – July 15th, 2011 – TopWare Interactive is releasing the Two Worlds II: Velvet GOTY Edition this October 18th and they are doing so with glamorous class! The TWII: Velvet GOTY Edition not only comes bundled with the sought after expansion Pirates of the Flying Fortress, but is also uniquely designed in a limited collector’s box which is wrapped in black velvet (PC/Mac) or red velvet (console versions) and highlighted with metal corners made to look like antique brass. Moreover, there is a bold relief TWII logo of the same real metal at the top of the box.
Along with the multi-lingual version of TWII, this collector’s item also comes with all of the up-to- date upgrades. Additional extras include a huge double-sided world map and a valuable pirate head pin collectable, which subsequently is also available in-game! This exclusive item actually boosts the player’s parameters if hefted to armor! Together with another bonus disc containing artwork, wallpaper, videos, an extended soundtrack and two additional PvP multiplayer maps. More Antaloor simply isn’t possible!
This limited collector’s edition will be available for PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3!
