GameStop just revealed its exclusive collector's edition of Ubisoft's highly anticipated weapon-based dueler, For Honor. Called the Apollyon Edition Collectors Bundle, this incredible package comes with tons of goodies. This is a big, Viking-sized box. So what comes inside? From the listing:

For Honor Apollyon Collector's Edition Includes:

  • For Honor Gold Edition
  • 14" Apollyon Statue - Standing at over a foot tall, this highly-detailed statue features an accurate reproduction of Apollyon, For Honor's main Warlord.
  • Exclusive Apollyon Lithograph - The Warlord of the Blackstone Legion seeks to bring war to her enemies in this exclusive Limited Edition Lithograph.
  • Origins Note - Go deeper into the battlefields of For Honor as you uncover Apollyon's previously untold origins. What secrets lie in the past of the Blackstone Legion's mysterious leader?
  • Premium Collector's Edition Packaging

The whole thing looks rather impressive, and it can be yours for $220. You can find the pre-order link for PS4 here, and a link to the Xbox One version here.

For those of you not already neck deep in hype over the neck-chopping slash-fest that is For Honor, what you need to know is that this is basically the sword fighting video game you've been dreaming about since you were a little kid.

Factions of Vikings, Knights, and Samurai have all come to occupy this mutually disputed plot of land in a world torn apart by war and natural disaster. A power-hungry Warlord by the name of Apollyon has recruited the greatest warriors from all three factions to join her in her quest for total control and domination, and that story is told in a gripping campaign. We got some hands-on time with that campaign, and you can read our impressions here.

We also got a chance to spend hours of hands-on time with For Honor's multiple multiplayer modes, including the new Elimination mode, during a special preview event. You can read our multiplayer preview here. In short, it kicks ass.

For Honor launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14. Stay tuned to WWG for full coverage of the game and post-launch tips and tricks.
