Yesterday, the multiplay beta for 2015’s “Halo 5: Guardians” became available for all players who have purchased The Master Chief Collection. In honor of the release of the beta, Microsoft and Bungie have announced the pre-order bonuses and the different versions that we can expect for “Halo 5.”
When the fifth installment in the “Halo” series releases, you can choose from:
- Standard Edition for $59.99 – Halo 5: Guardians plus an exclusive poster, only available to those who pre-order.
- Limited Edition for $99.99 – Everything in the Standard Edition plus new digital content to enhance Spartan combat and exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book.

“Halo 5: Guardians” will release sometime in fall 2015 and it continues the story of the Master Chief, and introduces a brand new central character to the Halo universe – Spartan Locke (as seen in the live action series “Halo: Nightfall”). Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. And when humanity’s greatest hero goes missing, Spartan Locke is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.
The multiplayer beta for “Guardians” will continue to run through January 18, 2015. Every week the beta is live will bring players new content to try out, including maps, weapons, modes, and a new Competitive Skill Rating (CSR) system.
