Celebrate Halo’s 20th anniversary and the upcoming launch of Halo Infinite with this custom designed, first-ever Limited Edition Xbox Series X. This design was inspired by the expansive Halo universe and is wrapped with dark metallic paneling accented by iridium gold. Above the armor there is a custom star pattern as seen from the surface of Zeta Halo that extends to the top of the console and onto the fan. Below the stars, the top vent is accented in Cortana-themed blue. To top it off, the console powers on and off with custom Halo-themed sounds. The controller included in the bundle features a matching design on the front, an iridium gold 20-year mark on the back, as well as side-and-back grips to accommodate all play styles. This Halo Infinite Limited Edition Xbox Series X launches November 15, 2021 and is available for pre-order for $849. AUD at select retailers worldwide, however stock has sold out already.
Also announced overnight was the Halo Infinite Limited Edition Elite Series 2. Ready for any mission with a custom design inspired by the Master Chief’s iconic armor, this controller features a battle-worn, matte metallic green with an iridium gold D-pad and comes with an arsenal of swappable components and a custom carrying case emblazoned with the iconic UNSC insignia. For that Spartan-like precision, use the custom thumbstick tension adjustment tool that you can even wear like a dog-tag so you’re always ready to fine-tune your combat experience. When you’re not using your controller, keep it powered up on the laser-etched charging dock or with the custom charging cable. And, when Halo Infinite releases, don’t forget to show off this one-of-a-kind design in multiplayer sessions with an exclusive Halo Elite controller weapon charm only available with the purchase of the Halo Infinite Elite controller.
The Halo Infinite Limited Edition Elite Series 2 is available for pre-order today for $249.95 AUD and will launch November 15, 2021 at select retailers worldwide.
Get excited legends, December 8 is the date we can all jump into the campaign and free multiplayer, with forge and campaign co-op modes coming sometime in 2022 and you can pre-order the game here. I did jump the gun three years ago when the game was first announced, but you can read all about my adventures in the Halo Series here.
