[UPDATED: We've added a fifth pre-order option - "Blue" Oceanic Armor Circuit and Battle Rifle skins from GameStation.]
Spartans are about to look a little more chic than usual when Halo 4 arrives. Never before has a Spartan worn camouflage armor – armor has always been limited to solid colors. Each game in the Halo series however has allowed for players to customize more details with time, and with the Halo 4 pre-order bonuses, players may get an upper hand – visually speaking – in online multiplayer than their solid colored enemies.
These pre-order camo suit skins could be a fresh change for hardcore Halo fans, and if 343 Industries wants to take the series into their own hands with Halo 4 then gamers should welcome it with open arms. It’s an interesting choice, but if the developers decide to add this level of customization of armor skins in the slew of options for the Infinity Multiplayer Mode, players might have more fun and roll with it.
Camouflage customization is available in plenty of other shooters, and after Halo: Reach introduced armor customization, the more options the better to help players create their own unique characters.
[NOTE: Updated info included below]
Five different retailers are allowing various different armor upgrades. At EB Games, players can take home a red and white forest armor and an arctic weapon skin.
Head on over to GameStop to grab the green and white forest armor. Shopping online, Amazon has a yellow and white “web” armor skin and Play.com hosts a blue and yellow “deadeye” helmet. GameStation is offering an Oceanic Armor Circuit and Battle Rifle skins.

Aside from the additions to these skins, the Infinity Multiplayer mode is shaping up to be expansive. Customization is going beyond what Halo: Reach began and the maps look incredible. If players are looking to upgrade their Spartan even further, look forward to the Limited Edition package that contains more exclusive content.
For those who love to decorate everything before a big game release and spend money on things that shouldn’t’ cost money, take to the XBLA Marketplace and for only 240 MS points download these premium Halo 4 themes.
This concept art is very stunning and those looking to upgrade their themes would be quite happy to own these.
If these concept art images are anything like the game we can expect very detailed and incredible environments that will only enhance the gameplay experience.
Halo 4 releases November 6, 2012, exclusively for Xbox 360.
