Shortly after the unveiling of Halo 4’s cover art, 343 Industries went ahead and detailed what we can expect from the Limited Edition of the game.

First off, the design looks great. When it comes to limited editions I’ve always felt that steelbooks are the way to go. The stainless steel-looking design with the UNSC branding is simple and elegant.

Along with the steelbook case for your copy of Halo 4 you will also receive:

  • War Games Map Pack Access – Access to nine maps – three future competitive multiplayer map packs, each including three locations, available for download post-launch on Xbox LIVE.
  • 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 – 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.
  • Bonus digital content through Xbox LIVE –  Unique in-game Spartan-IV armor 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 armor set.

You’re getting quite a bundle, no doubt about it.

Halo 4 limited edition will run you $99 and is available for pre-order now. You can pick up your copy of the game for the Xbox 360 on November 6th, so get your pre-orders in while you can!
