Until recently, paying $250 for the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition would only get buyers a digital code to download the full Xbox One shooter, along with all the other physical extras. Now, Microsoft's 343 Industries studio has revealed that anyone who buys this version of the game will be able to exchange the digital game code for a physical disc version of Halo 5.
Microsoft decided to offer this option after getting some notes from Halo fans:
"When we last left off, we let you know that we had heard the feedback that some of you prefer a physical disc instead of a digital copy, and that we were exploring options. Today, we're able to confirm that for those who would like a physical disc, we'll provide an option for fans to exchange their digital copy for a physical copy at no additional cost. We'll get into details as we get closer to launch, and we'd like to once again thank you for the feedback."
Besides the game itself, the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition also has a number of physical extras, including a Guardian model from Metal Earth and a big statue of both Master Chief and Spartan Locke from Triforce, The game itself will be released on October 27.
