Black Ops 3 has a special-edition exclusive Zombies map

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has a remake of Der Riese, the final map from Call of Duty: World at War's original Zombies campaign - but you can only play it if you buy one of the special editions.

Activision and Treyarch announced that The Giant (which picks up on the infamously convoluted Zombies story where Black Ops 2's Origins left off) will be included in the Juggernog Edition, the Hardened Edition, which is currently exclusive to GameStop in North America, and the Digital Deluxe Edition. That means you'll have to pay at least $20 extra to follow the continued exploits of Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen, and Takeo.

Of course, The Giant may not stay exclusive for too long: Der Riese was initially available exclusively for owners of Black Ops' Prestige and Hardened editions, and it was later released as part of the Rezurrection map pack. I wouldn't be surprised if its remake does the same.
