During the first ever Call of Duty XP event in Los Angeles, CA, Activision dropped more details on what we can expect from the Hardened edition of Modern Warfare 3 -- and its new price hike.
While no pricing has ever been confirmed prior to this announcement, the Hardened editions of both Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops were priced at $79.99. No comment has been given on why the price was raised by $20, however, one can only imagine that this has something to do with Call of Duty Elite being bundled in with MW3’s Hardened Edition.
Below if a full breakdown of what to expect in the Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition:
* Special edition disc art
* Special Founder status in Call of Duty Elite (includes XP boost, in game emblems, weapon camouflage, and more)
* Steelbook case
* Limited Edition collectible field journal
* 1 year subscription to the premium Call of Duty Elite service
* PS3 dynamic “Timeline” theme (PS3 version)
The Xbox 360 version of the Hardened Edition will feature exclusive avatar gear for Xbox Live. The MW3 HE will be released on November 8.
