Forza 5 getting limited edition Halo: Spartan Assault car

343 Industries and Turn 10 create a custom Halo livery for the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302.

UPDATE: Turn 10 has said the car will be gifted to Forza Motorsport 5 VIP members later this month.

The original story is below.

Halo developer 343 Industries has unveiled a custom Halo: Spartan Assault livery for the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 in Forza Motorsport 5.

343 Industries says it will reveal more details about accessing the limited edition car in the future, but if it ties in with the game's much-criticized economy it probably involves shelling out your life savings of in-game credits.

Previous collaborations between the Halo and Forza franchises saw the UNSC's ubiquitous Warthog vehicle feature as an Autovista easter egg in Forza 4.

Halo: Spartan Assault will be released for Xbox One on December 24.

A video of the custom livery can be viewed below:

This is the tackiest unlock I could possibly imagine.

I thought this would be a full on awesome car but it is just a really lame skin. That's so goddamn lazy and they'll make you pay for it if you're not VIP.

Forza 5 is super fun. I've already got an Exige, a Gallardo and a few other cars and 600,000 credits in the bank. Saving towards a expensive car like the Veyron.

Dude thats lame. Ive seen better halo cars in Forza 3 and 4 auction shops.

... SO basically this is microsoft's way of saying "Buy this car so you can drive an advertisement for one of our games that way you'll constantly be reminded to buy it whenever you drive this car!"

As a Forza Motorspot 5 VIP, I'll take it! It's a freebie & freebies are always welcomed :).

a livery? that's too bad. When I saw the title I was thinking a Warthog, not just a car skin.

wow, it looks just like a limited edition Halo car. I would have never guessed without that big Halo sticker. I wish they would had this beast to the new Halo game.

For non-VIPs, the car will cost just $9.99 per month for 24 months.

Don't be that guy, Martin, unless you will print a retraction if/when it's announced as something other than costing credits

Edit: I see that you did...Good Job.

I thought they were talking about a Halo Warthog or something when I read the title. *Deflated*

A warthog with a turret would have been better.

Milking the the Halo franchise by putting it in a game with a broken economy. So much milking. All the milk.

@themc_7 since "burnout paradise" i was hoping forza and/or Gran Turismo getting licenses for fantasy cars, (Bttf delorean, batmovil, and crazy sh like that) a functional warthog would be mostly great

@GH05T-666 its just a gift for VIP's you dont buy car alone.

@AceJakk

The economy isnt broken they are just trying to force people to give in to microtransactions to get credits.

Worst of all poorly milked if they had added a warthog imagine how many of these would been sold

The microtransactions are worse in this game than any I've ever seen for a retail game.

@dogfather76 I wouldn't say worse but similar to other games out there. All you have to do is log into to the Forza site to claim your Forza rewards, I got 6million free credits from that.....all you need is to have played a few past Forza games......you really do not need to touch any microtransactions in this game if you don't want to.
