Halo 4 Specializations explained and how they're unlocked

343 Industries recently explained the Specializations that were only mentioned back when the details of Halo 4's Limited Edition were first announced. Basically, any of the Specializations can be unlocked after your Spartan reaches level fifty. Once you follow these paths, you will be unlocking "combat-enhancing armor mods" that tailor to your preferred play style. All the Specializations and their perks are listed over on Halo Waypoint.

Wetwork and Pioneer will be unlocked for players right from the start, and all eight of the Specializations will be unlocked for people who pick up the Limited Edition. Microsoft also updated the details of what comes with said version (mostly just giving the cosmetic bonuses an actual name), and announced that the access to the War Games map packs (free for Limited Edition buyers) will be available for $24.99. Might just be worth the investment to buy the $99 version of Halo 4, eh?

The full updated list of the Limited Edition contents can be found below the jump.
