Far Cry 2 collector’s edition is both collectible, and an edition

If you like crying and things that are far away, then you’ll be disappointed with Far Cry 2, which actually has none of those things. Still, here’s a shot of the game’s special collector’s edition to cheer you up. Released on October 24 in Europe, it’s got everything you’d expect — an art book, a shirt, a map and a DVD. The game also ships in a special wooden box, which I find somewhat classy. Here’s the official rundown of contents:

To celebrate the release of Far Cry® 2, Ubisoft is happy to unveil the Far Cry® 2 Collectors’ Edition that will include:
– Exclusive wooden box
– Original Far Cry® 2 Game
– Limited edition Far Cry® 2 t-shirt
– “The Art of Far Cry® 2” Art book
– Collector 50km² map
– Making-of DVD

You can also hit the jump for the press release, because blogs are unpaid advertisments who are tricked into hawking the products of publishers. I feel like such a disgraceful whore.
