“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” Special Edition – An extended 90-minute version of the live-action digital series that will bring the “Halo” universe to life as you’ve never seen it, providing an enthralling backstory leading up to the events of “Halo 4.”

Halo 4 Limited Edition also includes the following bonus videos:

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.

  1. Woot! I wanna see the console in-game bonuses...

    1. I wanna see the console in-game bonuses too!! just so i can wiegh up the pros and cons of fishing out so much money not knowing which is better in the long run :/

  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.
