Microsoft is now accepting pre-orders for the just announced Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle for $499. The special version of the Xbox One, as announced as part of Gamescom 2015, will start shipping on October 20, seven days before the release of Halo 5 itself on October 27.
This version of the console, which has the 1TB hard drive, will include a special Halo-themed paint scheme for both the console and its included Xbox One controller. The game itself will be available via a digital download code included in a Spartan-themed SteelBook case. It will also have a Guardian model created by Metal Earth, access to the Halo: the Fall of Reach animated series, and Spartan Locke's Classified Orders. Finally, it will come with codes to download exclusive DLC content for Halo 5, including a Warzone REQ Bundle, FOTUS-class armor, and multiplayer emblem.
Microsoft is also selling two Halo-themed versions of its Xbox One Wireless Controller. One features the same Halo 5 art style included in the Limited Edition bundle, while the other has the green art style based on Halo's main character Master Chief. Both controllers are priced at $69.99 and will ship on September 29.
