Halo 4 Limited Edition Revealed

No Legendary Edition

Following the unveiling of Halo 4’s cover art yesterday Microsoft has revealed Halo 4’s Limited Edition.

The Limited Edition will include:

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 armour 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 armour set.

Microsoft have also announced that there will be no Legendary Edition, and will instead just have a regular edition and the limited edition for sale. The Limited Edition has been priced at $99.99

    Excellent package, i’m happy that they’re not complicating things and are offering a great deal of content for what seems to be a reasonable price.

      Given the article specifically says no legendary edition I’m thinking they won’t ;)

    Awesome. Have to also give them credit for putting decent DLC in the bundle too (i.e. map packs). As much as I’m really looking forward to my Max Payne 3 special edition tomorrow I would have preferred it if it came with a code for future map packs rather than some additional character models and weapons.
