Halo 4 LE vs Wargames map pack

Post by xThe Morningstar on Thu Sep 20, 2012 7:45 am

So in quite confusing fashion it appears that the DLC content which is inclused in the wargames pap pack is not avaliable to those who have purchased the LE

War games map pack season pass includes the following
3 seperate map pack
Scanner Helmet
Striker Helmet
Falcon emblem

The War games map pack season pass which is included in the LE does NOT include the two helmets and emblem for what ever reason

This has really kinda pissed me off

What was the point of buying the LE?
343i has really dropped the ball with its marketing campaign
It hasn't been clear and concise on whats included with what
also, the several dozen pre-order bonus' specifif to dozens of stores is really pissed me off as well

In the end it seems like a large money grab

This has been confirmed by Bsangel over at the waypoint forums

Seriously considering cancelling my LE order and just getting the standard game plus the map pack now

The pre-order bonus' depend on where you live and are retail specific

Thje war games map pack fiasco it a world wide thing

It just doesn't make sence to give LE purchasers LESS stuff then someone who purchases the standard edition

Man, 343. Don't screw me over. I preordered the LE of Halo 4 on my birthday. Oh well. I guess I could use the extra non digital content for when I'm bored or something ie: Infinity and Spartan IV armor schematics. The H4: FUD dvd set, however, I have to see. I keep watching that awesome trailer for FUD. I just realized about a few weeks ago that that British chick from Narnia is gonna be a Marine in FUD! Shocked lolwut

errr you are in for some disapointment my friend

FUD is not a dvd, you get a download code or a stream code for it

also new changes
recruit armour is no longer LE exclusive and is now the starting armour for all Spartan IV's

basically all LE owners are getting is the physical content
Prime armour skin
Prime AR skin
and the avatar items

Its really quite dissapointing

we LE owners literally get nothing that is exclusive with the execption of the PRime skins for the armour and AR

recruit armour is no longer excluisve
6 specializations from launch is now a pre-order bonus
FUD is a download code/stream code, not a physical disc
WGMP bonus items not included with LE

essentially all LE editions have are the avatar items the Prim skins the standalone WGMP and the physical info pack adn tin case

Its been devaluded so much
