If you haven't pre-ordered Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition yet, Microsoft have revealed a number of incentives to sway your hand - and wallet. The HD remake for the title that defined an entire generation and single-handedly plucked the original Xbox from oblivion is due on November 15th, 2011, and showing your love with an early pre-order will net you exclusive goodies!
So, first off, pre-ordering Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition will snag you the Master Chief Avatar Armor, a fantastic recreation of the MJOLNIR Mark V suit to dress up your Avatar in style. Maybe he'll rock out a little idle dance, too! Next up, your pre-order will also net you the Grunt Funeral Skull, an in-game modifier that turns every one of the Covenant's lowly cannon fodder runts into a highly volatile explosive when killed! Hats off to the first man who braves the game on Legendary with that skull on!
343 have also kindly dropped this behind-the-scenes vidoc on the work being done to the HD remake of Combat Evolved, detailing all the strides made forward and what the team has lovingly refurbished.
