Microsoft is loading up a number of different events ahead of Halo Anniversary's launch.
The publisher will be bringing Halo Anniversary to Gamestation's Birmingham New Street store and GAME's Kingston Upon Thames store on Saturday 12 November, with the multiplayer events starting from 7pm. Prizes are on offer - two Halo: Reach limited edition Xbox 360 consoles, a Kinect sensor, a copy of Halo Anniversary, an Xbox 360 Bluetooth Headset, one year's Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and a massive 10,000 Microsoft Points being the top winnings.
The company's also offering players two days of Xbox Live Gold free, in a rather bizarre promotion with Pizza Hut as the food chain introduces a limited time Halo Anniversary pizza. Anyone ordering it online between 7th and 9th December will get a confirmation email with the code (while stocks last).
Pre-ordering the title at GAME will net you an exclusive 24 page mini Halo art booklet, based on the art book "Halo: The Art of Building Worlds" by Titan Publishing.
All-time classic Halo: Combat Evolved is back on Xbox this winter in the form of the revamped Halo: Anniversary. 343 Industries has come out fighting and proved that, so far at least, it knows how to handle Halo.
