PlayStation Bloghas announcedandrevealed the contents of the $129.99 Killzone 3 "Helghast Edition." The special collector's edition most notably includes an "authentic Helghast helmet replica" which opens to reveal the game, an art book, and a downloadvoucher.The packagealso comes with an exclusive 6.5" Cloaking Helghast Marksman action figure. The full list of goodies is below:

  • Authentic Helghast Helmet replica opens to reveal art book, Super Voucher and Killzone 3 game.
  • Exclusive Cloaking Helghast Marksman action figure is 6.5%26rdquo; 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.
  • The 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.

The download packs included in the "Super Voucher" are also available separately, if you pre-order Killzone 3 from one of three retailers. Each retailer offers a different bonus:

GameStop -Guerrilla Pack

  • Unlock all multiplayer weapons and abilities for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.
  • Retro Map Pack download code.

Best Buy - Fast Starter Pack

  • Double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay.
  • Retro Map Pack download code.

Amazon - Unlock and Load Pack

  • Instant access to 3 Unlock Points to use on the multiplayerweapon or ability of your choice.
  • Retro Map Pack download code.

Pre-ordering from retailers other thanGameStop, Best Buy, and Amazon will score you the Retro Map Pack, but none of the special perks.

Watch that itchy trigger finger - Killzone 3 releases in North America on February 22, 2011, so you havesome timeto decide. That helmet is pretty badass, though.

The multiplayer perks, however, aren't really our cup of debris. Double XP and 24-hourinstantweapon access are great and all,but we'd rather start from the bottom and work up without any promotional silliness in the way. That's part of the fun!
