According to Microsoft, the extra twenty bill will get fans the following:
- Three new Halo 3 (not Halo Wars) multiplayer maps. The maps include Assembly, Orbital, and Sandbox. You might recognize those maps as the upcoming Mythic Map Pack.
- Halo Wars: Genesis -- A graphic novel by Phil Noto, Ensemble's own Graeme Devine and Halo novelist Eric Nylund. The novel details the first human conflict with the Covenant and "centers around the Sprit of Fire on a mission to discover why the Covenant are so interested in the world of Harvest."
- The "Honor Guard" Wraith in-game vehicle
- Six "Leader Cards." Trading cards, we're guessing, or something like them.
- Spirit of Fire Patch. You know, the iron-on kind. Have fun explaining what it means to your non-gaming friends.
