Quite literally only happening a mere hour or so ago, Microsoft has excitedly blessed the forthcoming Halo 4 debut with news on an exclusive edition of the game. This news has come in the midst of crowds filled with high anticipations and expectations held by faithful Halo fans and critics alike. Details concerning the special contents that will accompany any Halo 4 Limited Edition purchase are listed below, so take a gander.
War Games Map Pack Access – The Limited Edition includes access to nine maps – three future competitive multiplayer map packs, each including three locations, available for download post-launch on Xbox LIVE. (A detailed release schedule for the map packs will be announced at a later time.)
Specializations – Receive early access to six Specializations, available at launch on Xbox LIVE, to achieve higher ranks in your Spartan career. In addition to gaining access to new ranks, Specializations unlock new customization options. Purchasers of the “Halo 4” Limited Edition will get access on launch day, while others will have to wait as Specializations are released over time.
The Limited Edition also contains the UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet, which includes an armor customization 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.

As expected with most financially steep incarnations of any AAA video game release, Halo 4 Limited Edition has "behind the scenes," goodies focused on pleasing its die-hard Halo fans and Halo enthusiasts whilst there are some multiplayer "early release," aspects aiming at those who relish having armaments their friends lack on launch day.
Alongside the unveiling of the Limited Edition package, there are some details that have also been revealed concerning the multiplayer side of Halo 4. Most notably is the inclusion of weapon skins and Spartan skins; inclusions that were marked absent in all previous Halo games. Specializations, another new feature that will be present in Halo 4, permits the addition of extra customization option and may be similar to prestiging in the Call of Duty series considering the fact that it may be necessary to earn or unlock Specializations to reach higher ranks. Should these Specializations affect the normal method of ranking up by hindering those reaching for the rank of General by traditional means, an angry mob will definitely ensure an audience at 343 Industries' doorstep. Faithful and optimistic Halo fans may have their fingers crossed that the ranking system will be left virgin and Specializations will only have a role to play in the ranking system for those who may want to "restart," their Halo career or perhaps surpass a default ranking structure and ascend into a more advanced or complex ranking tree.
Nevertheless the Halo 4 Limited Edition, so far, is seemingly taunting those who are immensely longing for an all-nighter with their friends, or perhaps by their lonesome, enjoying the inevitability of fun and joy that will come with every Halo 4 purchase. Recommendably, the Halo 4 Limited Edition is almost a must buy for any Halo fan. Despite what controversy may be erected as the coveted Limited Edition of Halo 4 is exposed to the world, what truly matters is what Halo 4 will hopefully tantamount to: fulfillment of the values and expectations that any Halo fan withholds for the upcoming Halo installments. Halo 4 Limited Edition is soon to be available for pre-order alongside the regular edition of Halo 4. Halo 4 pricing information may be browsed at the link below this article.
