on August 28 2012 3:23 PM

Eurogamer is detailing the contents of Treyarch's coming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" special editions, currently available for pre-order at various retail outlets. While neither special edition includes Activision's "Call of Duty: Elite" premium service, there are notable differences between the two versions in price and content. The lesser of the two editions is the "Hardened Edition," whereas the higher-priced "Care Package" edition offers some really interesting bonuses.

Kotaku broke down the content within each special edition of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2":
