Halo 4 limited edition announced
343 Industries has announced a limited edition release for Halo 4. This version will include a plethora of goodies. As far as the in-game content is concerned, purchasers will be allowed to download nine extra multiplayer maps. They will also be privy to six specializations, which in turn allow players greater customizations to their multiplayer Spartan-IV character. Also included are extra in-game armor and Assault Rifle skins, and some gear for Xbox Live Avatars.
With regards to physical items, the limited edition will be host to a briefing packet on the UNSC ship Infinity, which plays a key role on the multiplayer side of Halo 4's story. It seems this will be similar to Halsey's journal from the limited edition of Halo: Reach. Finally, the ninety-minute Forward Unto Dawn series, which chronicles Master Chief's story in the early days of the Human-Covenant War, is included. The Halo 4 limited edition will retail for $99.99, which really isn't too shabby, considering everything included with the game. I'll probably end up getting it primarily for the Forward Unto Dawn series, as I am really interested to see how Chief will be portrayed pre-Halo: CE/Halo 2/Halo 3.
