Developer 343 Industries details Halo 4 pre-order bonuses

While most of America was gorging on coleslaw and hot dogs, the super-soldier-like developers of 343 Industries spent Memorial Day preparing for the Electronic Entertainment Expo industry trade show in early June. “We’re excited at the prospect of finally lifting our proverbial skirt and showing you exactly what we’ve got [for the convention],” wrote 343 community manager Jessica Shea on the Halo blog. In a few days, the GamesBeat team will be belly-deep in Halo 4 facts, and we’ll pass those along to you. In the meantime, let us break down some of the 343-verified pre-order bonuses you get to look forward to in this first-person shooter (coming out this fall on the Xbox 360).

According to Shea, everything listed is customizable. Meaning that if you don’t like the colors, you can adjust them to better fit your swagger. For a closer look at any of the mentioned items, be sure to check out the beautiful gallery at the foot of this post.
