God of War Ragnarok bundles include Steelbook cases with no discs inside

Enlarge / Don’t be fooled by that Steelbook case—there’s no physical disc to be found in this pricey bundle.

On Wednesday, Sony released an unboxing video highlighting all the bonuses included in the premium Collector’s Edition and “Jotnar Edition” of November’s God of War Ragnarok. But if you watched through that video, you might have noticed one conspicuous element missing: a physical copy of the game.

The omission of a disc is especially odd given that both special editions include the kind of Steelbook display case you would usually use to store your game disc in style. In this case, though, the PlayStation Blog specifically points out that there is “no game disc included” with the Steelbook. If you want a copy of the game to put inside that case, you have to shell out an additional $60 or $70 for the physical Standard Edition of the game. Otherwise, you’re stuck with the digital download code that comes with the pricier special editions (while Sony hasn’t announced pricing yet, similar Collector’s Editions from Sony have run $200 and up in the past).

Players who pre-order a Ragnarok Collector’s Edition won’t even be able to preload their digital copy of the game to play immediately on launch day. Instead, they’ll have to wait for physical receipt of their package and the “printed voucher code” included inside, then start what could be a lengthy download, depending on their connection speed.
