HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER’s sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.
UPDATE: Josh Holmes, Studio Head for Halo 5: Guardians has confirmed that the Spartan Locke Armor Set is not exclusive to those who pre-order from Gamestop – it can be unlocked through normal progression.
This is an update to my previous post about the temporary free access to the Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack.
Many people have asked questions why they can’t download it for free and apparently there is a catch/requirement to have complimentary free access to the map pack till the 18th.
The requirement is that you had to have received the code (via email associated to your gamertag or via Xbox live message) granting you access to the remaining 6 specializations. In order to receive this code, you had to have played Halo 4 prior to November 20th.
So many Europeans were never eligible to receive the specialization code, thus they are not eligible to have this temporary access to the Crimson Map Pack for free (till the 18th)
The Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack was released December 10th for individual purchase (800 MS points) or to owners of the War Games Map Pass (LE owners included). Unfrotunately due to some errors, War Games Map Pass owners had technical difficulties downloading the DLC on December 10th.
They have stated that Map Pass owners will not be reimbursed as the issue was resolved later that day (December 10th), but they have released the Map Pack for “free”, temporarily.
You can go download the map pack for free via the in-game marketplace (while you’re in the Halo 4 in-game menus). The map pack will be free till December 18th, but afterwards you will have to pay.
Think of it as a Crimson Map Pack Demo till December 18th. So go test out the maps if you don’t have them, and then decide if you want to purchase them December 18th.
