UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet – Includes an armour customisation schematic, a blueprint of the massive ship itself, and insight into what it means to be one of humanity’s finest warriors: the Spartan-IVs.

Microsoft also announced that launching alongside the game will be a "Season Pass" giving access to the first three map packs for 2000 Microsoft Points (a 15% saving). This inadvertantly confirms that the Halo 4 map packs will retail at 800 Microsoft Points when released individually.

  2. This is the first limited edition that seems worth the price tag.

    1. Really, the fact that the LE includes the free download of the first 3 map packs is what makes it a deal. Assuming each of those map packs is $15 like the H3 and Reach packs were, you'd be out $105 if you wanted to get them all otherwise ($60 for standard edition Halo 4 + $45 in map packs). With the LE, you get the whole shebang for $100, saving five bucks and getting a bunch of exclusive bonuses along the way.

    2. H3 and reach maps were 800, idiot. The season pass isn't free because you're buying it! 60 for the game. 30 for 3 map packs. 800= 10 bucks. That's 90 dollars worth of the limited edition. The rest are small things like armor and the Fud stuff. Sl that's 10 bucks worth. There, 100 dollars spent.

  3. So, I still can't tell if the live action series is on a DVD or download...

    1. I'm hoping it is a DVD so I don't have to pay for even more bandwidth each month.

    2. It is a code to stream it online via Halo Waypoint

  4. If a good portion of the maps turn out to be shit, well, not worth it of course.
