Retailer posts two more images of Halo 4 Limited Edition
New Zealand online retailer, Mighty Ape, has posted two new images of the Halo 4 Limited Edition.
The $99 Halo 4 Limited Edition, not to be confused with the recently announced Halo 4 Limited Edition Xbox 360 bundle, contains a ton of extra features to maximize your multiplayer experience through access to additional multiplayer maps, early Specializations unlocks, and a UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet.
The two new images gives us a closer look at the contents of this Limited Edition, specifically the intriguing Briefing Packet which includes a Spartan armor customization schematic, information about UNSC weapons, and an introduction to the massive ship UNSC Infinity among other things.
You can find additional pre-order information here. If you intend on purchasing the Limited Edition, you may want to do so soon as 343 Industries has warned there will be a "significantly less" amount of Halo 4 Limited Edition copies at launch than previous Halo releases.
Here's what's included in the Halo 4 Limited Edition:
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!
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 ofHalo 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.
