Also enclosed in the North American over-sized box is a numbered Collector's Lithograph, suitable for framing, and a miniature size Prima Official Strategy Guide.
The package (a book-like mini carton box) released in the EU includes a 152 page Collector's Booklet authored by Cyan World's Rand Miller which includes a D'ni Language and Grammar Dictionary, an overview of the previous Myst games, an artwork gallery and a short preview of Rand Miller's new book. It also includes a bonus DVD featuring the making-of video of Myst V, a 7 tracks sample of the soundtrack for the game and various trailers.
