While Halo 5: Guardians’ collector’s edition won’t come with a physical copy of the game’s disc, Microsoft is giving fans a brief window to swap out their included code for a disc that can go in the steelbook case that comes with the $250 special edition.
A post on the Xbox Support website gives fans step-by-step instructions on how they can exchange their code for a physical disc, but this offer will only be available between October 20th and November 1st. As the collector’s edition will be available a week before Halo 5 actually launches, those who act quickly should have a disc in time for the game’s launch on October 27th.
Here are the instructions as they’re written on the Xbox website:
1. Open the Contact Us page.
2. Select “Chat with Microsoft Support” to chat with a support agent.
3. Once you’re connected, inform them that you want to exchange your unredeemed digital code for Halo 5: Guardians for a physical disc.
4. You’ll need to provide the agent with the following information:
o Your Xbox gamertag
o Your email address
o The token’s 25-character code
o Your address for shipment
