At Gamescom 2021, Microsoft announced some major Halo Infinite news, including that a limited edition Xbox Series X is in the works ahead of the game’s launch on December 8.
In a press release, Microsoft said the limited-edition console, along with a Master Chief-themed Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 limited edition controller, is intended to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Halo series. As such, both will launch on November 15, the same day Halo launched in 2001.
Considering the high demand for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, it is highly likely that this limited edition Halo Infinite will be hard to find in stores. Worse yet, scalpers will likely aim to flip these systems on auction sites like eBay for inflated prices.
Pre-orders for the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition console and Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller – Halo Infinite Limited Edition are now live. The console will cost $ 549 while the controller will cost $ 199.
The console features dark metal panels accented with iridium gold. To us, it looks like the console incorporates Forerunner design themes. Above the shielded design is a star pattern which Microsoft says is the same network as seen from the surface of Zeta Halo. The top vent has Cortana-themed blue accents instead of the standard green. The console will also feature Halo-themed sounds. The included controller follows a similar design language.
For those who already own an Xbox Series X, Microsoft will also have a variant of its Elite Series 2 wireless controller. It will have a green metallic sheen, mimicking Master Chief’s armor, as well as an iridium gold D-pad. Those who purchase the controller will also have an exclusive Halo Elite Controller Weapon Charm to show off during multiplayer.
