In the "weeks leading up" to the Oct. 27 launch of Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft will release a special-edition console and controllers, while Astro Gaming has a special headset coming. Today, following a wave of news at Gamescom, Microsoft gave us our first look at what's to come.
The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition Bundle, priced at $499.99, includes a 1 TB Xbox One and matching controller designed to look like Spartan Locke and UNSC tech. In addition to the console, the bundle also includes a download code for Halo 5; the Warzone REQ Bundle with 14 requisition packs, FOTUS-class armor and a special emblem for multiplayer; an alloy Guardian model; animated series Halo: The Fall of Reach; and team dossiers. It's set to hit retailers Oct. 20 worldwide and Oct. 22 in Japan.
In addition to the Halo 5 controller available in the bundle, a special Master Chief wireless controller is also on the way. Both will be available for individual purchase in early October for $69.99 with a REQ Pack and visor.
The Astro headset, meanwhile, will be available for $220 in September and includes a REQ pack. Check out the images below for a closer look.
