Wednesday, 31st August 2011 23:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Purported details of the fanciest version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the Hardened Edition, have turned up online.

Wired has got hold of a photo of what is reported to be a European retail poster for the Hardened Edition, the contents of which were supposed to stay on the down low until Call of Duty XP in Los Angeles this weekend.

According to the poster, the special package includes:

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 game with unique disc art.
  • One year of membership in Call of Duty Elite.
  • “Founder status” on Elite with exclusive in-game emblem, player card, camouflage, clan XP boost and other exclusive benefits.
  • SteelBook case.
  • PlayStation Network exclusive: “Animated Timeline Theme.”
  • Xbox 360 exclusive: “Special Ops Juggernaut Xbox Live Outfit.”
  • Limited-edition “field journal” with more than 100 pages of “authentic military sketches, diagrams and written entries.”

Expect official confirmation over the weekend. You can see the poster below.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 releases on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.

Thanks, CVG.

    I’d be very surprised if this is sub €100, If you consider that an elite subscription is expected to offer all map packs as long as you are a paid up member. Black Ops has at time of writing four separate DLC’s at about €15 since the game has been released; it stands to reason that MW3 will have at least the same. I’m going to call the price at €130-150.

    @1 I wouldn’t be surprised, but I’m not sure the math is done like that. Special editions these days are all about fucking people over and making them like it, by loading a bunch of junk in with a game, that’ll allow publishers a much bigger margin.

    So I guess it’ll depend on just how little that junk costs to them. If you find the right taiwanese factory to manufacture it, you could trick people into thinking you didn’t pay a few cents for it, and make it sound like a good deal.

    I’ve enjoyed the fuck out of the last two Modern Warfares, but there’s no way I’m forking over for something like that.

    i guess the 1yr of cod elite will make the hardened edition selling for 100$ and all the pathetic fanboys will buy it anyway…
