Players are apparently getting frustrated with the growing cost of collector’s editions that they don’t feel add much value to their purchases. Star Wars Outlaws, the upcoming open-world game set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, has an ultimate edition which grants players early access three days ahead of the August 30 launch date.

This is a single-player game, so at most, that offers players the chance to get ahead of any spoilers. Of course, those players could also then spoil the game for everyone who didn’t pay more for the privilege of cutting the queue. People on Twitter and Reddit aren’t happy.

Also on offer are cosmetic packs for the speeder and spaceship, a season pass that will grant access to two DLC, and an exclusive mission titled Jabba’s Gambit that will be available at launch.

There are also cosmetics available for protagonist Kay Vess and her animal sidekick, Nix. There’s also a digital art book which will contain concept art, visuals, and unique cinematic storyboards. The ultimate edition costs £114.99, almost double the base game’s £59.99 price.

These kinds of collector’s editions of games used to come with some sort of physical item to show for the extra cash you had parted with. If they didn’t, and just contained digital bonuses like this Outlaws pre-order does, then they didn’t used to cost almost double

Early access days for pre-orders don’t always go off without a hitch, either. Infamously, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League had issues which led to the game being pulled an hour into the early access period and prevented people who had specifically paid for an early look from experiencing the game.

In other news, 1930s noir-inspired shooter Mouse has released a new trailer showing off some of the game’s various powers.
