The box art for both the Limited and Limited Collector’s Editions of Halo 5: Guardians has appeared online, thanks to GameStop Italy.
A couple months ago, developer 343 Industries announced both the Limited Edition and Limited Collectors Edition of Halo 5: Guardians, though very few specifics were given as to what these SKUs would include. At the time of its announcement, we were only given place-holder box art, but it looks as though we may finally know what the limited edition SKUs will look like.
At the initial reveal, we were let know that the smaller “Limited Edition” ($99.99 USD – presumedly shown above) would include:
Everything in the Standard Edition plus new digital content to enhance Spartan combat and exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book.
The larger and less affordable “Limited Collector’s Edition” ($249.99 USD – presumedly shown above) was accompanied with the following brief description of what the edition would include:
Everything in the Limited Edition as well as additional content such as a commemorative numbered statue designed by 343 Industries. More details on the design to be shared at a later date.
GameStop Italy’s page didn’t provide any further details, but it does appear as though this will be the new box art for both editions. However, page also let slip the reveal of some GameStop-exclusive action figures, which are not to be confused with the Limited Collector’s Edition’s commemorative statue.
My Italian is a bit rusty, but it appears as though customers who order the Limited Collector’s Edition will be receiving an action figure upon release.
Microsoft has yet to confirm or deny any of the images provided by GameStop, but XOD has a solid hunch that these are legitimate images. However, until stated otherwise, it’s best to take this news with a pinch of salt.
