American Express teamed with Microsoft for Halo 4 by offering an achievement based promotion earlier this month that provided an opportunity to net an easy $25 statement credit. This long awaited sequel is not quite done with incentives as the Xbox Live Rewards program is now set to reward the most avid online players with a new Halo 4 Combat Tour Offer.
The combat offer boasts a scaling system of rewards based on the length of time played online. Halo 4 players who accumulate 35 hours of multiplayer time from November 6 through the end of November will find themselves 100 Microsoft Points richer. The gamers who manage to hit the 70 hour mark are eligible receive 300 points, but the fanatics will reach the maximum yield of 600 Microsoft Points at 140 hours.
Xbox Live Rewards will also reward members who purchase any Halo content during the month of November. The maximum reward for purchasing digital goodies is 200 Microsoft Points, which is earned by spending 3000 Microsoft Points on Halo-related items. The Halo 4 Combat Tour offer is considered a 'first-come, first-served' promotion, limited to the first 10,000,000 Microsoft Points earned throughout November, and will be distributed by the end of 2012.
