According to a recent announcement by British retailer GAME, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be getting a very special collector's version, the Mjolnir Edition. It comes with a number of must-haves for any Halo fan but for now has only been confirmed as a GAME exclusive, which would make the Mjolnir Edition a UK-only deal.
Now what's so special about the collector's edition? Well, in addition to the hefty £169.99 price tag (well above the standard £44.99 version), The Master Chief Collection Mjolnir Edition throws in a detailed 12" statue of John-117 in all his MC glory, along with several more perks both physical and digital. Take a look:
- A Collector's Limited Edition Steel Book Case: Display your Halo: The Master Chief Collection game with pride with this stylish Steel Book!
- A Physical Map Book: Featuring all the maps from all different iterations of Halo, the Map Book will give you the tactically knowledge needed to help Master Chief outwit his foes.
- The Grunt Funeral Digital Skull DLC: Celebrate every headshot with the Grunt Funeral Digital Skull, which causes each of your precision kills to trigger a confetti filled explosion!
- The Master Chief Artfx Statue: Standing nearly 12 inches tall, this statue displays Master Chief in his iconic MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armour. Complete with his trusty Battle Rifle and interchangeable arms, you can position Master Chief in any number of unique poses!
Note that the product page via GAME mentions the Mjolnir Edition being "only at GAME.co.uk," leading to the current speculation that it will be released as a UK exclusive.
The site also mentions a limited edition, priced at £52.99 and also an exclusive offering. For that amount, you'll be getting the same Steel Book case found in the Mjolnir Edition, the map book and Grunt Funeral Digital Skull DLC. Basically everything from the most expensive version except the Master Chief statue.
Neither Microsoft nor 343 Industries have said anything about availability outside the UK, so we've no idea if North America or the rest of Europe will see these releases. Keep your fingers crossed.
