Watch Halo 5 Limited Collector's Edition Unboxing

One more month to go.

54 Comments

Halo 5: Guardians is getting two premium bundles, the Limited Edition ($100) and the Limited Collector's Edition ($250), and now Microsoft has published detailed unboxing videos for the premium bundles.

As you'll see in the video, the Limited Edition comes with a physical copy of Halo 5, a Halo-inspired SteelBook, Spartan Locke's Classified Orders, and dossiers for Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris. You'll also find a Metal Earth model of a Guardian, the Warzone REQ Bundle (comes with 14 REQ packs), and access to the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series. Read about how Halo 5's REQ system works here.

Meanwhile, the Limited Collector's Edition includes everything mentioned above, as well as a gorgeous-looking statue that depicts Master Chief and Spartan Locke. The statue is held together by magnets, meaning you can pull it apart and reconfigure it however you'd like. The bundle comes with a digital copy of the game, allowing you to pre-load the game starting October 20, seven days before the game launches.

If you're looking to buy the Limited Collector's Edition but would prefer a physical disc, Microsoft will let you exchange your digital copy for a physical one.

Finally, this unboxing video also goes over the $500 1 TB Xbox One bundle that will ship alongside the game on October 27. The Halo 5 console features metallic blue accents (as does its special controller) and even has Halo-themed sound effects. It also comes with the Limited Edition bonuses.

The Halo 5 release date is locked in for October 27.

Is the statue plastic? Because if it is, there is no way I'm paying that much extra for a statue made of plastic. I will take the $99 even if that is worth it I'm not sure.

I've pre-ordered the console. I have wanted a limited Halo console since the MC 360. I told myself if there was ever a Halo 5 Xbone release I would get it, no questions, to avoid regret like I felt with the 360. I saw the model in the GAME store which I pre-ordered in. No regrets!

oh god another fucking statue? **** that. this is not a true collectors edition

halo 3 was a true collector's edition, call of duty's had actually good collector's edition

speaking of which, i'm totally getting the han solo mini fridge, the value of it for the 130$ price tag (70$ of it is just the digital deluxe of the game!)

Why is it not looking like the master chief, the dude since halo one? Why dosnt it have the elite "best way to play" contoller with the 1tb..... At 500 should at least have the elite, heck 500 got a stupid gimmick kinect to help peeps switch a tv channel so why not 500 with the elite?

Such a coinsidence that contoller comes out the same day, 650 dollers is so worth it, and if you want the kinect at another 150, thats 800 wow i guess with "" poor"" sales they need to claw money out some how

Carful using the statues as a game library book ends. Magnets are not good to have around discs.

Something about the fall and a new Halo feels so normal and right - can't wait!!!

Wait... Someone help me clarify this. How can I pre-download the game if my collectors edition, with the code I need for the digital download, wont be delivered until the game is released?

Am I missing something? Or will the collectors edition be released early?

I'd buy Master Chief Controller if it had the rubber grip that Forza and Elite controllers have. Why they didn't include that but made it more expensive at $70 is a shame.

The Limited Collector's Edition should come with the disc, What's the point of a steelbook without the disc? At least you can exchange it for a disc. The Limited Collector's Edition statue is bigger than I expected but for $250 it should be!

@anime-2k3: If you knew better or anything at all you would know the console edition comes the limited edition which includes a disc and the collector's edition includes a voucher to get the disc. SMH.

@rasterror: They state at 5:02 that it doesn't. Maybe you can exchange the code for a disc but no where in the video to they state that and seeing as I only have that as a reference, I can only go off of what they stated in this video.

@anime-2k3: Gamespot had an article about exchanging from digital to physical copy of the game about 2 months ago. That said, I went all digital this gen on PS4/Xbox One/3DS anyways. I'm done with physical. Here's the article about it:

@ballashotcaller: They just spent a good portion of the video stating that it doesn't and that one of the bonuses of having a digital copy is that you get to preload it. Re-watch at 4:13.

@anime-2k3: Not having it in the box and not being able to get it, are two different things. It's not in the box, but you can still get it. No where in the video do they say it's not available.Why can't you understand that? Simple things are hard for you , failing at life.

@r1senape: Please tell me where in this video is indicated or even hinted at that there is way to exchange the code for a disc? If you went into to this video without any prior knowledge of the exchange program, would you have know that it was possible based on the information given.

@anime-2k3: Please show me where in the video that it indicates you can't get a disc. IT DON'T. YOU'RE MAKING ASSUMPTIONS BASED ON A LACK OF INFORMATION. You're in fact making this up. No one said you can't and no one said there is. You're just confused.

@jyml8582: They can't make the money back they spent on this game only through the 60$ price point. They must, if they want to profit, find other ways to make money. Isn't only greed, it's a evil necessity.
