Still haven’t decided where to pre-order your copy of Bungie’s highly-anticipated Halo: Reach?
Well, look no further because GameStop just sweetened the deal for people ready to reserve the game — new armor. Anyone who likes to make sure that their Spartan wins best dressed will probably need these exclusive pieces of fashion history, and the same goes for anyone else who just wants to T-bag n00bz in something that looks bad-ass.
If you reserve the game from GameStop you will get two pieces of armor: the first is a Spartan Recon helmet with a Visor/Blast Shield – and the second is the UA Multi-Threat Mjolnir Mark V (B) Armor (which in layman’s terms means you get a cool grenade belt and abdominal plate). Should be pretty useful when tearing players apart in a Blood Gulch multiplayer brawl or while trying to stay alive in Firefight 2.0.
On top of the armor options, GameStop will also provide orderers with a $20 gift certificate – but only if you pre-order Halo: Reach on their site. Personally, a couple of “exclusive” armor pieces don’t really seem all that great, but it sure as hell is better than nothing (the $20 gift card is a nice addition too).
Check out the GameStop exclusive armor below:
I think it would have been even better if they included a pre-order bonus like “Unlock Master Chief in Halo: Reach’s Campaign” or “Play as Arbiter in Halo: Reach’s Multiplayer.” Exclusives that include characters (i.e. Sgt. Johnson in ODST) are always the coolest pre-order incentives in my opinion.
GameStop pre-orderees can look forward to showing off their armor when Halo: Reach launches on September 14, 2010.
What do you guys think of the exclusive armor? Will you be switching your Amazon pre-order over to GameStop after this news?
