Death Stranding has finally been given a release date, and the folks at Kojima Productions have a couple of special editions of the game ready for preorder.

Finally, at $200, the Death Stranding Collector's Edition is the bundle of choice for diehard Kojima fans. Offering all of the digital preorder bonuses featured in other bundles, the Collector's Edition notably includes a "life-sized" BB Pod Statue, a BRIDGES Cargo Case, and a nifty little Ludens keychain. Given that it's a physical-only bundle, the full version of the game included also comes in its own custom steelbook case.

The Death Stranding Standard Edition, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and Collector's Edition are all slated to release on November 8. Players can scoop up all of the extra bonuses and goodies by placing a preorder through the usual retailers — Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Amazon.
