Pick up the Regular Edition, or choose from 2 Exciting Limited Editions

In addition to the Halo 5: Guardians regular edition, to celebrate the game’s launch, Microsoft is releasing two exciting limited editions for you to choose to from. If you’re a diehard Halo fan like me, these special packaged releases include tons of exciting inclusions that you won’t want to miss out on! Here’s a rundown of what’s included in the two limited editions:

10359307_1.jpgHalo 5: Guardians Limited Edition

  • Halo 5: Guardians game (on disc)
  • Warzone REQ Bundle (14 Premium Requisition packs to enhance Spartan combat)
  • Halo: The Fall of Reach – Animated Series
  • Guardian model by Metal Earth
  • Uniquely-designed Spartan themed SteelBook
  • Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders
  • Dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris
  • Xbox Live Gold 14-day Trial

You can see an image of the contents to the right—looks pretty awesome, eh! What better way to display your love for the Halo franchise than by proudly showing off these exclusive goodies!

This is the ultimate expression of Halo 5: Guardians! The Collector’s Edition includes everything in the Limited Edition (with one change, you get a downloadable code for the game instead of a physical disc), plus you also get:

  • Commemorative Statue designed by 343 Industries – The Master Chief and Spartan Locke appear as a team, but the statue splits and they separate, ready to face-off. Staying consistent with Halo 5’s “Hunt the Truth” theme, which scene tells the true story?

Some fans eager to get their hands on the Halo 5: Guardians Collector’s Edition voiced their opinion to Microsoft that they would prefer a physical disc copy of the game, and recently on the official Halo Waypoint website, the company said they’ll “provide an option for fans to exchange their digital copy for a physical copy at no additional cost.” More details will come closer to the game’s launch, so if you pick up the Halo 5: Gaurdians Collector’s Edition and want the game disc, it looks like Microsoft will have a solution!

Halo 5: Guardians is poised to be one of the biggest games releasing this fall. Don’t miss your chance to play the next journey in Master Chief’s legendary story!

Pre-order now to secure your exclusive Longshot Assault Rifle and Steel Assault Rifle Weapon Skin. Quantities are limited!
