We break down where to get the best deals on Halo 4 (UK)

October 31st, 2012 by Al Keenan the Bald Gamer Dude Comments

With only a few days until the launch of one of the most anticipated games this year we here at Following the Nerd want you to get the biggest bang for your buck.

I have done my research to see what different stores are offering in the way of pre-order bonuses and also the pricing structure (UK only sorry).

On release there will be two versions. One will be the regular game and the other is the Limited Edition.

The latter has all of this to offer (see pic below):
War Games Map Packs: This limited edition includes access to nine maps–three future competitive multiplayer map packs, each including three locations, available for download post-launch on Xbox LIVE.
Specializations: Receive early access to six specializations, available at launch on Xbox LIVE, and use them, one at a time, to achieve higher ranks in your Spartan career. In addition to gaining access to new ranks, Specializations unlock new customisation options.
The Special Edition of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, a 90-minute extended version of the live-action digital series which will take fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war, when the Master Chief inspired a young cadet who would eventually become a leader aboard the UNSC’s greatest vessel ever: the USNC Infinity.
Bonus digital content through Xbox LIVE, including unique in-game Spartan IV armour skin, unique in-game weapon skin for the Assault Rifle, an exclusive in-game emblem, Xbox LIVE Avatar prop and Xbox LIVE Avatar Spartan IV armour set.
This limited edition also contains the UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet which includes a Spartan armour customisation schematic, an introduction to the massive ship UNSC Infinity and insight into what it means to be one of humanity’s finest warriors: the Spartan IVs
It is however reflected in the price.

Asda are not offering the Limited edition

Regular edition:  £37.99 (£5 pre-order in store, pre-order bonus of Purple Spartan warrior armour and customizable locus helmet, free delivery)
Could not locate the Limited edition online but I saw it in store, I’m guessing it will be around the £65-£67 mark.

It’s not too late to pre-order and in most cases they will dispatch it to you on day of release.

The bonus of buying in store is that there are a few places that will have midnight openings for you to get the game early.

So what are you waiting for? Get your Halo on…
