Microsoft shows off the Halo 5 limited editions

Microsoft is no stranger to crazy special editions for the Halo games, including the “Legendary Edition” for Halo 3, which came with a replica Master Chief helmet, and the limited editions for next month’s Halo 5: Guardians look as extravagant as anything we’ve seen from the series before. To celebrate the game’s impending launch, the publisher has released a video showing off the two goodie-packed bundles in exquisite detail.

The “Limited Edition” of Halo 5: Guardians, which includes a steelbook, a packet of dossiers, the Halo: The Fall of Reach series, extra DLC, and a Metal Earth model, will cost $80, and executive producer Josh Holmes says that it was designed to look like it “came directly out of the Halo universe.”

The Metal Earth model, like all other models from the line, must be assembled from several included metal sheets: the perfect thing to do while you wait for your game to install and download the inevitable day-1 update.

If you’re more into the “go big or go home” line of thinking, then the “Limited Collector’s Edition” is what you’ll be looking to get. It comes with almost the same content as the Limited Edition (the physical copy of the game has been replaced with a digital code, though this can be exchanged for free), but it also comes with a magnetic statue of the Master Chief and Spartan Locke.

While promotional photos had shown off the ability to detach the two sides of the statue from each other, they didn’t express just how massive the thing is. Reversing the position of Locke and Chief can even turn them into the most expensive bookends you’ll ever buy.

Halo 5: Guardians launches exclusively for Xbox One on October 27. (I’m still bitter that the Halo 3 replica helmet didn’t fit on my mini schnauzer.)
