343 Industries has good news for Halo 5 fans who were wanting a physical copy of the game with their collector’s editions.
Although the Collectors Edition bundle includes a download code for the full game, it does not actually include a physical Halo 5: Guardians disc. However, those who prefer physical copies over digital will have the option to trade their codes for discs.
“Today, we’re able to confirm that for those who would like a physical disc, we’ll provide an option for fans to exchange their digital copy for a physical copy at no additional cost, We’ll get into details as we get closer to launch, and we’d like to once again thank you for the feedback.” says a post on the Halo Waypoint
Along with a copy of the game the Collector’s Edition also includes a large statue featuring Master Chief and Spartan Locke, special packaging, Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, and other goods. It can be pre-ordered now for £199.99 exclusively at GAME.
Halo 5: Guardians releases for the Xbox One on October 27.
I must stress that this information is purely that, there has been no confirmation from 343 if this is for UK markets, as the post is from the US forums, however I would hope that giving that the CE is an exclusive for GAME only, they will work something out with them for us to be able to trade in the code. I myself am a digital fan, so it doesn’t effect me either way, how about you though? Would you want to trade your digital code in for a disc if given the chance, would you be unhappy if this wasn’t available in the UK market?
