Specializations Help Please?

So after 3 days of playing H4 for the first time (Would have gotten it on release but I was broke), I beat Legendary Solo Campaign, and I decided to check out Multiplayer.

My friends introduced me to specializations and how it was too late to get them, and I can only rank up to SR-70 now. Is this actually true? Some suggest that 343i might let everyone have them in the new January update.

Some info would help a lot :).

Bump.

Well because you have not played Halo 4 before the 20th of November, you won’t receive the specialisations code through email or through Xbox Live. So you probably won’t have the specialisations for a while.

To the best of my knowledge, I don’t know for sure whether there actually will be a specialisation release for everyone else. However, here is a quote from the limited edition contents:

“Receive early access to six Specializations, available at launch on Xbox LIVE, to achieve higher ranks in your Spartan career. In addition to gaining access to new ranks, Specializations unlock new customization options. Purchasers of the “Halo 4” Limited Edition will get access on launch day, while others will have to wait as Specializations are released over time.”

Take note of the bold text. So you should hopefully get it eventually.
Hope it helps!

Thanks so much!

I have about the same ‘problem’, but slightly different.

I’m now at SR-48 and want to do the pioneer specialization first. I now only have access to the wetwork and the operator specialization.

I read somewhere that if you played Halo 4 multiplayer before november 20th, you will receive an e-mail with a code that grants you access to more specializations. I played it on november 16th for the first time, but I haven’t received an e-mail.

Anyone know what I can/should do? (Or point me to a thread with the right answer?)

Cheers & thanks!

Waiting for the Jan updates too… Capped at LVL 70 max… =(
