The ten year anniversary of Halo: Combat Evolved is just a few months away. If an HD remake of an old classic wasn’t enough reason to get you to pre-order than maybe the pre-order bonuses will. Microsoft and 343 Industries detailed the bonuses and even for me, a huge Halo fan, I found them to be a bit lackluster.
Here’s what you get:
· Master Chief Avatar Armor– Heroes Never Die, and to honor the 10th anniversary of John 117, you will finally be able to transform your Xbox LIVE Avatar into the iconic hero by outfitting it with Master Chief’s signature MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor.
· “Grunt Funeral” Skull – An exclusive, game-modifying skull that changes the rules of the game for an explosively humorous experience, “Grunt Funeral” sends “Halo’s” most lowly and lovable enemy out in a blaze of glory. And plasma. And then more glory. Once the skull has been activated, every grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed. Watch out for the grunt chain reaction!
Glad to have an avatar item but aren’t there already a bunch of difference spartan suits for sale on the avatar marketplace. As for the skull, I’m not a fan of playing the campaign with skulls on. 343 Industries did release a video of the skull in action, you can watch that below.
Halo CE Anniversary is due out on November 15. Let me know if you’ll pre-ordering.
