Announced late last year, Blizzard has taken to their Battle.net blog to unveil just what the physical Collector's Edition will look like for their upcoming Diablo 3 expansion, Reaper of Souls.

With your usual high-quality art book and unique box art, the limited edition will also include a behind the scenes DVD and Blu-Ray, the Reaper of Souls soundtrack, a Malthael mouse pad and a handful of in-game content exclusive to the Collector's Edition.
A collection of exclusive helm- and weapon-transmogrification recipes to distinguish your hero among the champions of Sanctuary; a loyal Spectral Hound minion to keep your adventurers company on their epic journeys; three additional character slots to accommodate new heroes; an in-game Treasure Goblin companion pet for World of Warcraft; and an assortment of Crusader-themed Battle.net portraits and Malthael-themed decals for StarCraft II.
Currently it looks like only JB Hi-Fi ($88) and EB Games ($89.95) are offering the Collector's Edition for sale, though if you spot any other retailers with the physical edition let us know in the comments below.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls will be available on PC and Mac come March 25th. If you haven't been keeping up with our new hands-on closed beta diary by Kosta "Toadovsky" Andreadis, you can find the third chapter over here for a great insight into the new Crusader class.

Preordered from JB. Great keepsake and excellent CE again from Blizz. Can't wait!

Their collectors editions are getting kind of boring tbh. Every time now its just mousepad + art book + behind the scenes dvd. I mean, the art book is always really high quality, but still, a bit of originality wouldn't go astray.

I'm with Pave.

Ice9ine, I doubt it. Diablo 3 was one of the biggest disappointments ever for me. So I don't really give a shit about ROS.

Just because something is the biggest selling movie, game, car or whatever it is of all time doesn't mean it's good.

Everyone is allowed an opinion and I respect those that don't like it. What I don't get, is almost two years on, why do you still find it interesting enough to come in and announce your disappointment? If there was a game I bought and don't like, I would shelve it and forget about it, not linger around forums years after expressing my feelings. Each to there own I guess.

Darksouls 2, I agree will be amazing as was the first.

Probably because so many of us have waited for years for it and blizz done fucked it up, making it console friendly.

We're still butthurt because for some of us, our childhoods have been ruined.

For me, personally, it felt like all the Blizz execs and developers came in to my room one night and violently raped me. One after another. That's how much disappointment I felt about Diablo 3.

While I agree vanilla D3 was pretty fuckin average, you guys should consider checking it out come xpac.
The changes they've made over the past year and now with the itemization changes etc it's a whole lot better.

Can someone sum up why D3 was a flop for me? I heard it was too hard? The auction house was flawed?

Diablo 3 was so bad IMO, that when my account was hacked I didn't bother getting it back lol.

The Auction House almost completely removed the whole killing stuff for loot aspect that is Diablo. How they could not see that I don't know.

"The Auction House almost completely removed the whole killing stuff for loot aspect that is Diablo. How they could not see that I don't know"

Because it works perfectly fine in WoW so they tried it I suppose and it failed in D3. So they are fixing it by removing it altogether. You cant knock Blizz for accepting their mistake and changing things up with ROS.

Diablo 3 is a big ship to turn around and it wont happen in one expac, however ROS is a step in the right direction lets be honest.

D3 at launch was bad enough that when my kid deleted my character I just stopped playing pretty much.

Having spent some time in it since I am much happier with it now, and really looking forward to ROS as the final element needed to create a worthy successor to d2.

I get the reluctance though but I am not unhappy to have a CE pre-ordered atm.

I'm not paying for an expansion that is what the game should have been, screw that.

OK then, meanwhile I'll be having fun if that's ok with you?

(btw the game will be 'fixed' expac or not)

Digital Collectors Edition all the way. I was over boxes quite a while ago.

For me, it was the story and game play. Everything that made Diablo 2 awesome just wasn't there. The AH also fucked it. Rather than sharing loot and making trades, people just threw it all on the AH for a quick buck. The story too, my god was it so predictable and contrived. The characters also blew chunks. The always online too, sucked the big fat one. And it still does. Had they given us AU servers, it might not have been as bad, but we didn't get them.
