If you’re anything like us, you’re itching to get your hands on the eagerly awaited Halo 5: Guardians, the biggest title in the greatest games lineup in Xbox history and the most awarded version of Halo ever at E3. Well, you don’t have long to wait – it’s coming on October 27. To celebrate, we’re excited to announce several new Halo-inspired premium hardware options which will be available in the weeks leading up to launch. We’ve got the Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition bundle, a pair of limited edition Halo 5: Guardians wireless controllers, and a killer new gaming headset from our friends at ASTRO Gaming – available for pre-order today.

The Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition Bundle

Our Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition Bundle is headlined by a 1TB custom-designed Xbox One console and controller, inspired by Spartan Locke and UNSC technology. It features two-tone paneling, blue metallic accents, graphics on the vents, and in-game sounds, including the Plasma Grenade charging up when turning the console on, smart-link activation when hitting the eject button and more. The sleek design details extend to the included Limited Edition wireless controller – which complements the console with chrome and metal details, and a honeycomb pattern and insignias. It also includes a 3.5mm audio jack, allowing you to plug your favorite gaming or audiophile headphones directly into the controller, making it perfect for Halo 5 multiplayer sessions. And, the mono Xbox One Chat headset is included, featuring mute switch, rotational volume dial and adjustable mic boom. The bundle is truly a one-of-a-kind collector’s item.

The bundle includes a full game download of Halo 5: Guardians. You’ll also get the Warzone REQ Bundle, which packs in 14 premium Requisition Packs, FOTUS-class armor, and exclusive multiplayer emblem. As if that wasn’t enough, the bundle also includes an alloy Guardian model designed by Metal Earth, the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, team dossiers for Blue & Osiris, and Spartan Locke’s classified orders. The bundle is available in most major markets worldwide starting on October 20 (October 22 in Japan), priced at $499.99 USD. If you purchase this bundle, you will have the added benefit of pre-downloading Halo 5: Guardians in advance, so you’re locked, loaded and ready to play on day one – October 27.

This year, we’re delivering the greatest games lineup in our history and the greatest value in all of gaming. Visit xbox.com to learn more about all the Xbox One bundles this year.
