Back in May, a mysterious Call of Duty Modern Warfare Dark Edition pre-order surfaced on GameStop’s website. While no additional details were featured on the page, the edition sparked a little speculation within the community – with many wondering how it justifies a hefty price of $200.
What’s Included Within Modern Warfare Dark Edition?
Now, it appears as though Infinity Ward has teased some of its contents courtesy of a recent tweet. The tweet showcases a physical set of night vision goggles accompanied by the caption “learn more during the Modern Warfare Multiplayer Premiere on 8/1 at

We also assume Infinity Ward will add some other goodies into the mix as well – especially considering high-quality NVGs retail at a rough price of $100. The Modern Warfare Precision Edition, which is the second most expensive pre-order version, features KontrolFreek gear as well as operators packs and other in-game pre-order incentives.

When is the Dark Edition Coming Out?
Despite not revealing what’s included, GameStop did confirm that its release date is October 25 – the same day of when Modern Warfare becomes available worldwide.

Nevertheless, if Infinity Ward’s tweet does apply to the Dark Edition, we can expect further details to surface on August 1st at the full Multiplayer reveal.
