There is a new skull in town…
The “Bonded Pair” skull is a pre-order bonus for ‘ShopTo’ customers (a UK store). What is interesting about this listing isn’t just what the skull does, but it’s exclusivity.
So the effect of the skull is pretty cool. But it’s the last sentence that intrigues me more.
…exclusive until 12/12/14.
Hmm, so does that mean that all of these pre-order skulls are only exclusive for a month? Then what? Will they be unlocked for everyone? Are these skulls able to be found in the campaign without the pre-order?
Interesting questions that I suspect 343 will wait to answer. After all, they want more and more people pre-ordering and by doing so will get a skull bonus. Should 343 say those skulls are only exclusive for a month as it appears ShopTo’s ad says, well then, there isn’t a point of pre-ordering for the skulls themselves.
I’ve sent these questions above to Andy ‘Bravo’ Dudnsky (Community Manager/Halo, 343 Industries). Now we wait to see what his reply is.
