For those of you who are Halo and RTS fans, Halo Wars must be close to the second coming. Just announced today, Halo Wars will be getting a special edition that includes many things, in particular the upcoming Mythic Map Pack for Halo 3 from Bungie Studios.
Here is a list of what the extra $20 (MSRP $79.99) will get you:
- Three New "Halo 3" Multiplayer Maps - Be one of the first to experience the Mythic Map Pack from Bungie which includes three new maps, "Assembly," "Orbital" and "Sandbox"
- Halo Wars: Genesis- a beautiful graphic novel by Phil Noto, Graeme Devine and Eric Nylund chronicling the first military campaign against the Covenant. The novel centers around the Sprit of Fire on a mission to discover why the Covenant are so interested in the world of Harvest
- Unique In-game Vehicle - "Honor Guard" Wraith
- Six Leader Cards - Leaders possess elite skills which can turn the tides of battle
- Spirit of Fire Patch - Start the journey as an official Spirit of Fire crew member
If you pre-order the game at select retailers (we're guessing GameStop at least) you will get a code for flame decals that can be downloaded and put on a warthog. Halo Wars will ship in February 2009.
