Fans excited for the upcoming release of Halo 5 can get exclusive multiplayer armor by preordering the game at Gamestop. Halo 5: Guardians comes out 27 October 2015 and features Spartan Locke going toe to toe with the Master Chief.
The armors are labelled as pre order exclusives by a post on Xbox.com. The armors listed are
- HUNTER-Class Armor: Sophisticated and lethal, HUNTER-class armor incorporates Watershed Division’s latest warfighting technology.
- HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER’s sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.
There’s also a video trailer on Gamestop’s Youtube channel showing off Spartan Locke which is embedded below.
Halo 5: Guardians is the next step in one of the Xbox line’s most successful franchises. A massive portion of Halo’s appeal is that of multiplayer and having exclusive armor in multiplayer matches could make a player feel rather sleek. As American Football legend Deion Sanders says “if you look good, you feel good, if you feel good, you play good, if you play good, they pay good.”Further reading: Gamestop, Halo, Halo 5, Microsoft, Xbox One
