Halo 2: Release Date and Collector's Edition Unveiled [img]http://www.bungie.net/images/News/InlineImages/metalboxshotz/frontmetalboxsm.gif[/img] Halo 2 will be available in stores on November 9, 2004. That's the long and the short of it. You'll be playing Campaign, multiplayer or both on November 9th. And if you pre-order, you'll have the chance to purchase an extra-fancy collector's edition in a metal box. I can still remember that feeling of buying my first ever game. In my case, it was the Atari 2600 game COMBAT. I remember taking the bus home and reading the instruction manual. "52 different games in one!" Admittedly they were all variants of the same game, but, that feeling of rushing home to play it, but cherishing that pristine box of your favorite game is an irreplaceable feeling. Of course back then, the boxes were made of cardboard and mine got wet and disintegrated within a week. That's why we're pleased, no, elated to announce the existence of the Halo 2 Limited Collector's Edition in its cool, steely silver, embossed, satin-finished, perfect, metal box. The Halo 2 Limited Collector's Edition is available to players who pre-order the game - those who have already pre-ordered, will probably be contacted by their retailer to see which version they want, but to be safe, we recommend contacting your retailer directly and making sure they know which version you want - awesome regular kind or super-awesome Limited Collector's Edition. The exclusive 2-DVD set includes, in addition to Halo 2: * The Making of Halo 2: Behind the Scenes of Bungie Studios. * Featurettes on Game Design, Animation, Music and More. * Deleted Cinematics and Characters * Art Gallery: From Concept to game * Commentaries from the Development Team * And much, much more. So, that's that. You're probably enjoying the new the shots, and there'll be more Halo 2 goodness later in the week - but lest you forget, here's a list of awesome things in history that were made of metal. 1. Katanas 2. Tanks 3. Death Stars 4. Bullets 5. Deadly Teeth So enjoy and to keep you going, check out these shots of the metal box concept - it may change a little between now and November 9th.
