Apparently some gamers still use discs over digital downloads for whatever reason, slow or unstable Internet or just like having a bit of plastic you need to switch out when changing games (Ed. *shudder*)
For those not ready to embrace digital gaming, the news that Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition doesn’t come with a disc copy of the game was a big shock and one that might have put them off purchasing the bundle. Those cries of frustration didn’t go unheard with 343 Industries and Microsoft promising to investigate options to get hard copies to those who wanted it.
Now, that promise has come through with these simple steps
- DO NOT redeem your code
- Head over to the Xbox Support Contact Us page
- Select “Chat with Microsoft Support”
- Inform the agent you want to exchange your digital code for a physical copy of Halo 5: Guardians
- Provide the agent with your Xbox Gamertag, email address, 25-digit download code from your Collector’s Edition and your physical address for shipping
If the code has been redeemed, you won’t be able to exchange for the disc version. Microsoft states that the disc version should arrive 3-5 business days after the trade has been accepted. The phsical shipment will include all the Collector’s Edition content including Warzone REQ bundle and Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series.
Trades will be available between 20th October when the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition goes out until the 1st November.
Halo 5: Guardians is available globally on the 27th October exclusively on Xbox One. Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Editions go out a week earlier to allow for pre-loading.
