Halo 5: Guardians is getting its own Spartan-inspired Xbox One limited edition console, including a matching controller and downloadable copy of the game.
Releasing alongside the title?s launch in the fall, the limited-run console will look as if it is sporting its very own Spartan armor, designed with the look of UNSC technology in mind. This Xbox One comes in a two-tone grey and silver, highlighted by blue foil and a hexagonal pattern made familiar by Master Chief?s visor. The console shares its Spartan theme with the included controller.
The $499.99 bundle is packed with a 1TB version of the console and a steel book containing a game download that can be loaded in advance in order to play on day one. Other bonuses include a unique Guardian model, animated movie, and more.
Players looking for more gear with the Halo touch can pick up two wireless controllers paying direct homage to Halo 5 protagonists Master Chief and Spartan Locke. The Locke controller is identical to the one included in the bundle, but the Master Chief edition is an entirely separate design, with green and gold tones inspired by John-117 himself. Both models are pictured below. A $220 Halo 5 headset by Astro will also hit the market by September
The Halo 5: Guardians limited edition console is available for pre-order and will release on October 20th. The Spartan controller can be pre-ordered alone and is available October 6th. No word as of now on when players can purchase the individual controllers.
