In the Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition bundle, the player will find a gaming console with a design inspired by Spartan Locke and UNSC technology. The console will sport a combination of metallic grey and blues which will add to the aesthetic appeal of the hardware. A gaming experience is incomplete without some amazing customized sounds and keeping this in mind, the Xbox One Halo 5 version features in-game sounds like the Plasma Grenade charging up when the console is turned on. With 1 TB of space, there is practically no limit to the number of games that the gamer can store and play.
Apart from the code for the full game download, users will also get a Warzone REQ Bundle, featuring 14 premium Requisition Packs, FOTUS-class armor, Blue & Osiris team dossiers, Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders, and a special multiplayer emblem. An animated series, the Halo: The Fall of Reach has also been included in the limited edition bundle.
The beautifully designed wireless controllers come with a laser etched design. Both the controllers have a unique design, with the first controller sporting metallic-blue accents, and the second controller named ‘Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians – The Master Chief Wireless Controller’, sports a green and metallic orange accents design inspired from the Master Chief’s armor.
