Halo 4 Limited Edition Details Revealed

There’s no helmet to put on your cat this time. 343 Industries have revealed the Halo 4 Limited Edition today, and for the low low price of $99 it can be all yours on November 6th. The Limited Edition will grant you access to the first nine new multiplayer maps that they release via DLC after the game launches, early access to six specializations, an informative briefing packet, a special digital edition of the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn web series that will be released prior to the game, exclusive in-game Spartan and Weapon skins and finally a Spartan Armor set to dress up your Xbox Avatar with. If you do the math, each map pack would be at least $10, so that’s $30 right there, and the game alone is $59, which takes you to a total $89, so you are basically paying an extra $10 for the rest of the items. Worth it? You can read the full details of the Limited Edition below.
The Halo 4 Limited Edition will be available at the estimated retail price of $99.99 and includes: War Games Map Pack Access The competitive multiplayer modes of Halo 4 are known as War Games. The Limited Edition includes access to nine maps – three future competitive multiplayer map packs, each including three locations, available for download post-launch on Xbox LIVE. Yes, you read that correctly; you get nine maps in the form of future DLC with the purchase of the Halo 4 Limited Edition. Score! Specializations Everyone will have access to select Specializations, but those that purchase the Halo 4 Limited Edition will receive the ability to unlock six Specializations early, available at launch on Xbox LIVE. You can use them, one at a time, to achieve higher ranks in your Spartan career. In addition to gaining access to new ranks, Specializations unlock new customization options. We’ll be releasing more information about Specializations at E3, so expect additional details about this particular feature then. UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet The UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet includes a Spartan armor customization schematic, information about UNSC weapons, an introduction to the massive ship UNSC Infinity, and insight into what it means to be one of humanity’s finest warriors: The Spartan-IVs. Story lovers will especially enjoy this in-fiction offering that provides a glimpse into the indoctrination of Spartans aboard the Infinity. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Special Edition The Special Edition of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is a 90-minute extended version of the live-action digital series which will take fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war, when the Master Chief inspired a young cadet who would eventually become a leader aboard the UNSC’s greatest vessel ever: the UNSC Infinity. Digital content also includes in-fiction bonus content that expands the characters and stories of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, special featurette Bringing Gaming into Reality, and a behind the scenes look at the making of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Bonus digital content through Xbox LIVE The Limited Edition includes the following bonus digital content through Xbox LIVE: unique in-game Spartan-IV armor skin, unique in-game weapon skin for the Assault Rifle, an exclusive in-game emblem, Xbox LIVE Avatar prop, and Xbox LIVE Avatar Spartan IV armor set. Right about now you may be wondering, “If all those things come with the Limited Edition, what are they going to put in the Legendary Edition?” Here is the answer to that question: There will be two options available at retail for Halo 4 – the regular version of the game and the aforementioned Limited Edition. We decided to focus our efforts on a single special edition instead of numerous ones so you wouldn’t have to pick and choose between what ancillary items you want. Now your primary choice is whether or not you just want the game, or the game along with all the goodies. And we’re hoping we made that decision an easy one for you…
