BioShock debuted 10 years ago today, and publisher 2K Games is marking the seminal first-person shooter’s double-digit birthday with a special edition that includes all three games in the acclaimed franchise.

The BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of BioShock: The Collection, the current-generation remaster of the entire trilogy. Originally released in September 2016 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, The Collection is a two-disc package featuring BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite plus each game’s downloadable content (it does not include BioShock 2’s multiplayer mode). All three remasters were handled by Blind Squirrel Games.

Also included in the Collector’s Edition is an 11-inch statue of a Big Daddy and a Little Sister; it’s based on the original BioShock’s box art. The statue lights up and emits sound, and the Big Daddy’s drill is motorized.

The BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition also comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity — probably because it is an “extremely limited edition release,” in 2K’s words. In fact, the package will be available exclusively in the U.S., sold only at GameStop and the 2K Store. You can pre-order the package now for $199.99.

If you don’t want to spend that much money, you can get BioShock: The Collection itself. 2K is currently running a sale on it at a variety of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart. The prices vary, but generally range from $24.99 to $29.99. Digital copies are also on sale — The Collection is available for $29.99 on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store, and $19.79 on Steam.
