Well here is some exciting news for all you fans of Call of Duty who can’t wait to see what Activision and Treyarch have up their sleeves for the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Hitting the wire today are the complete details of the Collectors and Hardened editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and all I can say is WOW.

Many fans of the series were disappointed last year when Activision released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 without any “real” incentives for the Collectors or Hardened editions, all that was included was the “Elite” subscription for 1 year. The Call of Duty franchise of late has made waves with their over-the-top bonuses, things like working Night Vision goggles (MW2) and remote control cars with working cameras (Black Ops).

Well Treyarch has heard your complaints and they’re here to help! This years Call of Duty is taking things to the next level with incentives for forking over a bit of extra cash.
