EB Games Reveals First-Ever NHL Collector’s Edition

We’ve just received an e-mail from EB Games, which details the above image as the “first-ever” collector’s edition of EA Sports’ NHL series. The NHL 13 Stanley Cup Collector’s Edition will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 11th, 2012, the same day as the regular edition, and will cost $79.99, rather than the regular’s $59.99.

What you get for your extra $20, according to EB Games’ website, is as follows:

  • $40 of added value including a full copy of NHL 13
  • Two Stanley Cup® Theme Hockey Ultimate Team packs featuring randomized player items from the Western and Eastern Conference Champions
  • Gold Jumbo Hockey Ultimate Team Pack (Regular) featuring 24 randomized items, including an exclusive Wayne Gretzky Hockey Ultimate Team Legend and six other rare items
  • A CCM Boost Pack featuring the all-new CCM RBZ stick (For use in Be a Pro and EA SPORTS Hockey League)
  • A 10% discount on a one-time purchase at shop.NHL.com
  • Exclusive collectible Stanley Cup® tin featuring an embossed Stanley Cup image

In addition, those who pre-order either edition of the game will receive an exclusive Gold pack of Hockey Ultimate Team for 16 weeks, spanning September 2012 to December 2012. “Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) combines the fun of NHL 13 while adding in elements of managing, trading, and collecting of hockey players to create your Ultimate Team,” notes the website.

Finally, if you pre-order the game on their website, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a jersey autographed by Claude Giroux.
