Although we’re all still impatiently waiting for the game’s Fall 2015 release date, those looking to dive in to Halo 5‘s multi-player will be able to partake in the beta program rolling out today on Xbox One.
There already seems to a bit of polarity in its reception, partially due to its addition of iron sights–which is new to Halo–and a bit of the ol’ “bro dude” in its commercial and in-game lingo. You’ll have to jump in and judge for yourself of course, but feel free to let us know what you think down in the comments.
In other Halo 5: Guardians news, Microsoft has confirmed that the game will release with three different versions.
- Standard Edition ($59.99) – Standard copy of the game with a bonus poster for pre-ordering. Hype traiiiin.
- Limited Edition ($99.99) – Essentially the Standard Edition with a steelbook case and a few digital bonuses to “enhance Spartan combat.” $40 extra for a steelbook and some yet-to-be-named digital bonuses isn’t really selling me here.
- Limited Collector’s Edition ($249.99) – This hefty beast is $100 less than the cost of the console, and comes with all Limited Edition content, as well as a commemorative statue that has yet to be shown.
I probably would have waited until I had more details to reveal this kind of information, as it’s hard to get excited about unknown digital items, or a statue; without seeing what it looks like first, at least.
