Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Splinter Cell: Blacklist Collector's Edition is Plane Crazy
Written By
View author's profile

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is to get one of those OTT mental Collector's Editions that'll cost you a small fortune. It's ridiculously called the 'Splinter Cell: Blacklist Paladin Multi-Mission Aircraft Edition' and bundles the game with a "3-channel twin engine remote-controlled Paladin aircraft". In short, it's a "high-performance" RC plane that actually flies. Whoop.

As well as including the lovely RC Paladin aircraft, the Collector's Edition packs in an 88-page limited edition Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel, an exclusive poster and a bunch of DLC, including the 'Billionaire's Yacht' co-op map and the 'Upper Echelon Pack' that contains the 'Dead Coast' co-op map, in-game Upper Echelon suit items and Gold sonar goggles. Because gold is like way better than green, darling.

The insane Splinter Cell: Blacklist Paladin Collector's Edition will be available for $169.99 when the game launches on August 20th, 2013. You can check it all out in the trailer below, courtesy of IGN.

These collector's editions are getting a little ridiculous. I appreciate a good steelbook and maybe some free skins or something with the a limited edition or from a pre-order. But I don't need a toy plane with my game...

I'd totally want this if I was 10. Now if I were to show off any of this stuff I'd just look like a pathetic loser, and I'd feel like one too.

my mancave look like a little airplane hanger already with all the Call of Duty collectors stuff. I love this stuff, the perfect compliment to true fans of all things gaming. Keep the Special Edition coming!

Well, at least there are more CE's being released with physical treats ontop of a steelbook or slip cover. I've been a little fed up with 'free DLC' that ends up for sale later anyway as of late. This is a step in the right direction, but same as Dead Island Riptide... a little TOO far

Wow, that is ridiculous! Not sure if I really want that plane or if it is just too much.

@7 - The Dead Island Riptide Rigor Mortis edition is much more tame (it is what I ordered) and is only $79.99.

I would love to buy this, but not at that price. It's actually a very good price for a decent RC aircraft - but since it's a collectors piece that I'd never fly, I can't justify that kind of money. And this is coming from someone who has all the Halo Legendary editions...

£80 is my limit when it comes to special editions and even then it has to have some awesome in game content or it's a definite no. All these little plastic things i keep seeing with new games makes me wonder what will in 20 years time, Holographic toys?

I wish they would do more behind-the-scenes documentaries about making the games... the Bungie doc on Halo2 was really great - would like to see more of that type of Collectors Edition content.

@9 - I agree. I rarely use the toys and such that come in collector's editions because they are collectibles. So, I probably won't spend $170 on this. Might watch it and see if the price drops 50%+ awhile after release.

I just wish all games came with the option to buy them with a better looking case and maybe a bonus skin or something trivial for like... 10$ more. This is insane.

What would anyone do with this? Would you display it? actually use it, perhaps? I think I'd be too busy enjoying the game than to play with some ridiculous toy that was bundled with it.

Poor collectors edition for a poor game, I can smell those "Thumb Downs" already.

But on a more serious note, what happened to just releasing a steel book edition ? Or even like Dante's Inferno did with the Death Edition, made it look like a movie boxset.

I miss the $80 Collector Editions. I don't want remote control cars, planes, etc. If I did, I'd go to Toys R Us for the first time in 20 years to buy one. I just want the game and some in game content you can't get anywhere else.

@21 You may have a point there :p If Conviction is the benchmark then Blacklist may follow in its footsteps lol. But on topic, a full controled airplane? Na if they slammed one of those nice collectors figures Ubisoft is producing lately (ACIII Connor, FarCry 3 Vaas) and add an awesome Sam Fisher in full gear then i def would buy it. But i,m sure they might release one on their Ubisoft Store anyways then.

Cool. This is the first time I've seen confirmation of Co-op. I loved that in Conviction.
Not really a big fan of SE. got them for AC III and FC3 and they didn't add an awful lot in terms of content and the physical stuff was mostly pants.

Good for parents who want to play an M-rated game and their kids can go fly a plane, I suppose. Or maybe this is just for the collectors out there. Either way, it's neat but my regular edition will do me just fine.

Plane? Lol most numbers of players not want get plane figure since there plenty of like this in many shops like Harrods, Toy Shops, John Lewis etc....

Collector's Edition for this new Splinter Cell game should have Sam Fisher figure like Conviction (I got this and one of best figures for CEs). Ubisoft should bring Sam Fisher figure, google figure, silence pistol firgure and something else that better then plane.

I not get this CE so I look forward game. Bioshock Infinite and Injustic's their Collectors Edition look great and better then this one.

CE's and LE's are just getting ridiculous! Who has space for all this crap and who has the money to spend $170 on a video game?! The last CE I bought was the Borderlands 2 Loot Chest and I regretted it and ended up selling it on eBay.

This still doesnt make up for the fact that this game looks and feels more like Assassins Creed and Michael Ironside isnt the voice of Sam Fisher anymore.

Only Ubisoft special edition I have is the Brotherhood one and it was pretty sweet. Not too interested in a plane though. :/ VERY interested in the game itself, though.

Usually these are just all paper and cardboard shite that they are trying to flog for an extra £10 and morons do buy it. At least you do get something worth the money, not that I or even anyone would even want or need this.

What ever happened to a free bottle opener keyring or carabina flashlight like call of juarez and SC conviction had?

I want something I can make use of and show off, not useless shite to fill up my home.

cant believe UK isnt getting this, isnt on the web anywhere. maybe il just import it instead...

well when videogame memorabilia stops selling years after a game has come out, then collectors editions wont be worth anything, but as it is... if i can still sell my original sealed ME1 CE for £700, then il keep buying the 'crap' that people keep referring too.
who out there actually owns a MINT SEALED oblivion collectors edition? how much u think that would be worth now? sure not everything is worth the money short or long term...but u just never know.
