Halo. One of Microsoft’s biggest, most profittable franchises. What better way to bring in more money? Re-release a game that started it all HD. Kinect. If that wasn’t enough to buy you in, they are now offering pre-order bonuses!
For the first time ever. They are offering the full suit of Master Chief’s MJOLNIR armor for your avatar. That’s right folks, you can now say that you are Master Chief.
Here is the description from Mircosoft & 343 Industries
Heroes Never Die, and to honor the 10th anniversary of John 117, you will finally be able to transform your Xbox LIVE Avatar into the iconic hero by outfitting it with Master Chief’s signature MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor.
See a picture after the break….
If that’s not enough, they are also adding an “exclusive” skull to people who pre-order. It’s called Grunt Funeral and here is what it does:
An exclusive, game-modifying skull that changes the rules of the game for an explosively humorous experience, “Grunt Funeral” sends Halo’s most lowly and lovable enemy out in a blaze of glory. And plasma. And then more glory. Once the skull has been activated, every Grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed. Watch out for the Grunt chain reaction!
