The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collectors Edition will not come with a physical copy of Halo 5: Guardians, instead opting for a digital download code for the game.
The $249.99 / £199.99 version comes with a few impressive additions in the box, the premium price tag includes:
- Digital game download code for Halo 5: Guardians
- Commemorative statue of Master Chief and Spartan Locke by TriForce
- Metal Earth Guardian model (3D metal model kit)
- Warzone REQ Bundle
- Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series
- Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders and dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris
- 14-Day Xbox Live Gold trial
- Limited Collector’s Edition packaging
This does not include retailer exclusives for pre-ordering like Amazon’s Projection SMG with Long Barrel.
Microsoft is making an ever increasing push towards Digital distribution but some may ask, why if there is a digital game download does the collection include a SteelBook. It can be used to store your Spartan Locke Classified Orders of course but many would expect to see the Blu-Ray disc when opening the case.
Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collectors Edition will be available on the 20th October for Xbox One alongside Standard and Limited Editions of the game.
