343 Industries have detailed exactly what we can expect to find within the now obligatory Limited Edition version of Halo 4. Included in the set is access to the War Games Map Pack, with 3 multiplayer map packs coming post-launch, 6 Specializations to boost your Spartan career, a UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet (which includes armor customization schematics), a blueprint of the UNSC Infinity, and details on the Spartan-IVs. There’s also a raft of exclusive digital content including 2 in-game armor skins, an assault rifle skin, an in-game emblem and Xbox Live Avatar items, and a special edition of the Forward Unto Dawn live action prequel series.
343 will also be offering a War Games Map Pass for those who are content with the standard edition that will provide access to the first 3 multiplayer map packs, much like the season passes provided by games like Saints Row: The Third or Gears of War 3. On the multiplayer side, 343 has also revealed the Specializations that will allow you to customize your Spartan for your preferred battlefield role. You can check out the new Specializations at Halo Waypoint.
Halo 4 is out November 6. The Limited Edition has a SRP of $99.99 and the War Games Map Pass will be $24.99. You can get more details after the jump.
