Master of Orion Collector's Edition

WG Labs announces details about a Collector's Edition of Master of Orion, their upcoming 4X strategy expansion. This will include all three of the original games in the series, Early Access, an exclusive race, and more. They have all the details on the game's official website where they are already accepting preorders. Here's the whole plan:
WG Labs today revealed details about the Master of Orion Collector’s Edition. This special digital bundle for the reboot of the critically acclaimed sci-fi strategy game will include the first three legendary Master of Orion titles, a beautifully detailed digital art book, modernized orchestral soundtrack, special retro art style graphic motif, and an exclusive new race only available in the Collector’s Edition: the Terran Khanate. Players will also be granted Early Access—when available—so they can begin their quest for galactic supremacy ahead of other explorers.

The Master of Orion series set the bar for the iconic 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) strategy genre, and is the foundation for WG Labs’ reimagining of the legend. With the Master of Orion Collector’s Edition, players will have the chance to relive the classic version of the game. To complement the inclusion of Master of Orion 1, 2 and 3, a digital art book is also available, showcasing the game’s deep and intricate artwork. A digital version of the entire modernized orchestral soundtrack by Dave Govett, composer for the original Master of Orion, is also included to make this Collector’s Edition truly epic.

A special retro art style can be applied to replace the modern 3D spaceships with pixelated craft, reflecting the style of the original 1990s version. Finally, a unique race, exclusively for Collector’s Edition owners is available. Named the Terran Khanate, this race is an aggressive and threatening model of a future humanity that mirrors the Human Federation but with a warlike bent, giving players a new way to conquer the stars.

If not for the particularly game killing bugs, MoO3 would've been best in the serie. MoO4 and X-Com2 are my most anticipated atm.

I've got 2, why they hell would I want to get 1 (good in it's time, but it's not 2) and especially 3 (I don't need to tell people here about that one)

It's just stupid. and "Retro Style" is also. MOO2 isn't about playing an old style game, it's about playing a GOOD game. Stop wasting your and our time you idiots.

I hope MOO4 or whatever they're calling it is a good game, don't rely on the past in order to make it so however.

I suppose that by expansion, Blue really means sequel?

Can't wait to see how this turns out. Hopefully the overall tone and feel of the game is going to be improved versus what we saw in that dev diary video. Those alien race relations scenes were cartoony and spoken in English, and the dialogue itself was embarrassingly bad (Mrrshan talk entirely in cat references, and so on). I think they misstepped with that part, but I suppose it will be ignorable if the game recaptures some of the old magic.

Ah, I see. It would be cooler still if it was a physical item; like some fancy album box with all the games in it.

If you click the link, it's clear that yes, it includes the new game (including early access, and an extra race).

It doesn't seem like they're actually taking pre-orders yet, though, and there doesn't seem to be any indication of the prices.

Not very special if its not a physical version... Not quite understanding this though, does it include the new MoO that they are making?

Why rebundle the entire trilogy. The only one anyone would really want is II. I can understand I and II, but why include the steaming pile of franchise killing garbage that was III.

Because maybe some want III ?
