Armored Core 6 Collector’s Edition Is Insane And $450

If you’ve got some of your hard-earned cash burning a hole in your pocket and you’re in the mood to splurge on some mech-driven combat action, then consider picking up the Armored Core 6 Collector’s Edition. It was recently unveiled by FromSoftware, and it was revealed to go hand-in-hand with – at the highest tier – a price tag equalling a whopping $450.

That makes it one of the most expensive Collector’s Editions in history. I mean, it’s not a patch on Saints Row IV’s ‘Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition’ that was worth $1 million, but it’s still quite pricey, right? However, the Armored Core 6 Collector’s Edition genuinely looks worth the money…

Okay, The Collector’s Edition Looks Pretty Neat

It’s relatively subjective whether or not you think the Armored Core 6 Collector’s Edition is worth $450, but I think we can all agree that it at least looks quite impressive (thanks for the showcase, GamesRadar).

It starts at $230, which isn’t monumentally expensive, as Collector’s Editions go. But, if you want to prove you’re the ultimate Armored Core fan, you’ll be looking to purchase the Premium Edition, which tacks an extra $220 onto the price tag.

What does that include, though?

  • Exclusive, art-themed steelbook
  • Luxurious art cards
  • In-depth artbook
  • Digital soundtrack
  • Sticker pack
  • Pin badge set
  • Base game (of course)
  • Poster
  • 19cm Figurine of a mech

And if you opt to go for the Premium Edition

  • 32cm Garage to store the mech

I mean, you’re paying a whopping $220 for a plastic display unit, so it’s up to you to decide if it’s really worth the expenditure. It does look cool, but is it $450 worth of cool?

Personally, the most I’ve paid for a collector’s edition is around $200, and that was for the stunning Witcher 3 Collector’s Edition, released way back in 2015…

Armored Core 6 launches on August 25th, as we reported earlier this week, and it’ll be dropping on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
