Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is an upcoming remake of the original game that was released almost a decade ago. It features improved graphics (with an option to switch back to the classic mode), completely remastered sountrack, and support for stereoscopic 3D and Kinect.
The game includes 7 most popular multiplayer maps for use in Halo: Reach multiplayer, new achievements, and Halo 4 story teasers via the updated Terminals. It also offers both online and local (split-screen) co-op. Halo: Anniversary comes in a single disk with a modest price tag of $40.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary pre-order bonuses
The two digital items offered with Halo: Anniversary preorders are not retailer-exclusive:
- Master Chief Avatar Armor: outfit your Xbox Live avatar in Master Chief’s signature MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor.
- Exclusive Grunt Funeral Skull: activate it to make every grunt’s methane tank explode in a glorious fireball when they’re killed.
Where to buy
United States – it seems the best deals can be found on Amazon ($10 promo credit) and Buy.com (1000 Super Points, which are worth $10). Other retailers like Gamestop or BestBuy only offer the aforementioned in-game items with no additional bonuses.
United Kingdom – you can get the same bonuses if you pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary at Play.com.
