Gamescom 2012: Halo 4 Gets DLC Pass and Limited Edition

Posted on August 17, 2012 AT 09:29am


It seems like every game that is released now has a DLC pass and Halo 4 is not immune. Starting November 6th, players will be able to purchase a DLC Pass called the “War Games Map Pass” for all future add-on content for 2000 Microsoft points. Microsoft has promised that would mean a 15% savings  if you waited and bought the DLC individually as it was released. Saving money is always a good thing but I know it hurts to pay in advance for DLC right after you dropped the cash on the game itself. To sweeten the deal, if purchasers of the DLC pass will also get three bonus in-game items; the Strider helmets, the Falcon in-game emblem, and the Spartan Scanner-IV.

Microsoft also revealed the contents of the Limited Edition Halo 4 package. Start digging the sofa for change because you are going to want this one.  It includes:

  • “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.” It also includes the following bonus videos: Bonus in-fiction content expanding the characters and stories of “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”, Special Featurette : Bringing Gaming into Reality, and Making of “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
