It was only a matter of time before the pre-order incentives for 343 Industries upcoming title Halo 4 were revealed. 343 community manager Jessica Shea has done exactly that for us. In order to hold us off until their showing at E3, we have been given the details on what you can expect to get when you pre-order your copy of Halo 4.

Like we’ve seen with a lot of recent titles, you get different incentives for pre-ordering at different retailers. Here’s a detailed list of what you get depending on where you shop:

Best Buy

  • Raptor armor skin – VENATOR


  • Forest armor skin – HAZOP
  • Arctic weapon skin – Battle rifle (Canada only)

  • Dead Eye helmet skin


  • Web armor skin – CIO
  • Spartan emblem
  • Bulletproof emblem

Microsoft Store

  • Pulse armor skin – GUNGNIR


  • Circuit armor skin – OCEANIC

Pretty much all of these unlocks are character or emblem customization features. This way, no one gets the upper hand by unlocking certain weapons of abilities before the rest of the community. This is an idea that we’re particularly fond of.

You can pre-order you copy of Halo 4 at any of the retailers above and expect your copy on November 6th. Stay tuned to TechnoBuffalo to see what else 343 Industries plans to share about Halo 4 next week at E3.
