Microsoft has teamed up with GameStop to help introduce Spartan Locke, the Halo franchise’s newest character, to gamers everywhere. Players who pre-order Halo 5: Guardians from GameStop will receive the Spartan Locke Armor Set, which comes complete with a special suit of armor and a helmet that can be used exclusively in the game’s multiplayer mode (via Xbox Wire):
- HUNTER-Class Armor: Sophisticated and lethal, HUNTER-class armor incorporates Watershed Division’s latest warfighting technology.
- HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER’s sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.
You can check out Spartan Locke and his snazzy threads in the trailer above. And if you’ve been following Microsoft’s “Hunt the Truth” blog, you might want to know that a new episode of the podcast is now available.
Halo 5: Guardians will be released for the Xbox One on October 27.
