Halo Legends will be released in three formats: 1-disc DVD, 2-disc Special Edition DVD and limited edition Blu-Ray steel book. The 2-disc Special Edition contains several hours of incredible bonus features, including audio commentary with directors Frank O’Connor and Joseph Chou, “The Making of Halo Legends,” and “Halo: Gaming Evolved” which explains the Halo phenomenon from its inception as an Xbox video game to a present day entertainment franchise. The Halo Legends Blu-Ray is loaded with bonus material, including all the great extras from the 2-disc Special Edition as well as “Halo: The Story so Far,” an overview of the Halo universe up until the end of Halo 3.
