Halo: CE Anniversary pre-order bonuses

Avatar armour and game modifying skull.

Pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and you'll get Avatar armour and a skull, Microsoft has announced.

Here are the details:

  • Master Chief Avatar Armour: Heroes Never Die, and to honour the 10th anniversary of John 117, you will finally be able to transform your Xbox Live Avatar into the iconic hero by outfitting it with Master Chief’s signature MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armour.
  • Grunt Funeral Skull: An exclusive, game-modifying skull that changes the rules of the game for an explosively humorous experience, Grunt Funeral sends Halo’s most lowly and lovable enemy out in a blaze of glory. And plasma. And then more glory. Once the skull has been activated, every Grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed. Watch out for the Grunt chain reaction!

A new trailer detailing the pre-order items is below, alongside some nifty new images.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a high definition remake of Xbox first-person shooter Halo: Combat Evolved.

It's developed by Microsoft's 343 Industries in collaboration with Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity, and features cooperative play over Xbox Live, classic Halo multiplayer maps re-imagined, a Classic mode that lets you play the original version, new challenges and hints at Halo 4's story.
