After over four years in Cryo-Sleep, our beloved Master Chief is finally awakening for another sci-fi saga in Halo 4, and for this grand occasion, 61 of Future Shop stores across the country will be opening at midnight the evening of Monday, November 5.

 

Details of the Future Shop midnight openings can be found below, and also on the snazzy Halo 4 dedicated webpage on futureshop.ca. 

 

Ever since Master Chief ended his triumphant story arc with the Covenant and the Flood way back in Halo 3 (2007), fans have been clamouring for the return of UNSC's greatest super soldier.  The great news is that we're just over a week away from his momentous return, in what is arguably the most-anticipated game of the year. 

 

In addition to the 61 stores hosting midnight openings, these select Future Shop locations will be giving away an exclusive SteelBook Case (minimum 10 per store) and downloadable content (DLC) for a customizable multiplayer Spartan IV Gungnir Armour Skin and helmet to the first customers that purchase Halo 4 at midnight.  Take a look below at the amazing artwork contained on the exclusive SteelBook:

While that was all the giveaways noted in the announcement email I received, the futureshop.ca Halo 4 page says to "line up early to win cool Halo swag and t-shirts", meaning that there might be even more goodies given away at participating Future Shop stores. 

 

Halo fans living in the Greater Vancouver Area get a special treat with a Halo 4 multi-player tournament at the flagship downtown Future Shop location (Robson & Granville), starting at 9:00pm.  Tournament participants will have a chance to win incredible prizes, including the grand prize of an Xbox 360 320GB Limited Edition Halo 4 Console with a Warhead 7.1 Wireless Surround Headset (a $749.99 value).  Other prizes include exclusive Halo 4 posters and t-shirts, and a random draw for an LG 47" Smart Cinema 3D LED TV with Dual Play and a 5.1 Channel Blu-ray Home Theatre system (approx. value $1,599.98).
