According to Joystiq and Kotaku, MS started sending out emails to your xbox live linked email accounts with Codes to redeem for the Specializations. You only qualify if you A) Played Halo 4 before November 20th and B) played it while connected to Xbox Live.

Although I followed the steps mentioned above, I for one, haven't received it but if you got it, please reply. If anybody knows how to get the codes by contacting MS or a certain xbox channel, please notify below!

UPDATE!!!!!:

If you haven't received your code, you have to go to the following link and enter your information. I hope this helps all who haven't received their codes yet.

I got the email sent to my Live account email address last week. I've been playing since launch day.

You still need to level your character to the max (50) before actually picking a specialization. The specializations will also all be released over time for free regardless so don't freak out too bad if you've missed this. It's for hardcore MP folks only.

Aside from the dopes who don't know any better and are spending upwards to $50 for these.

The code was for "Specialization Alpha" which apparently came with the Limited Edition

No email for me, though I'm not 100% sure I played online before the 20th.

Got the code and redeemed it yesterday, as mention by secretbaldwin above, yeah you have to get to certain level to unlock these, but I notice that they didn't include the limited edition exclusive FOTUS armor (which was the one i really wanted). So the people who got the limited edition still have something thats exclusive, unless they pull something like this again in the future.

Fotus armor came with the LE console. The LE game came with an alternate skin for the Recruit armor.

Is this the email that says "Here is your gift from Xbox LIVE" in the title? It had a Halo 4 picture in it, but I didn't really feel like redeeming it because it didn't say what it was.

Yes, it is.

And if you haven't gotten the email in the address you have linked to your gamertag, check alternate emails (parent accounts). Some people have been getting them there, and apparently all of the codes have been sent out now.

Also, this promo did not go out if you are registered with Xbox LIVE in Europe, the Middle East or Africa.

Did not know that, could of sworn I read that it came with the limited edition somewhere...

How can you confirm all the codes have been sent out now? I've not received mine yet and only have my GT linked to one email address.

there's also some troubleshooting/tips and more info for those who haven't gotten it.

I guess some people have invalid email addresses and may be getting the offer through an xbl message.

Was a repost but I didn't know they had a thread to post if you didn't get it which I went ahead and did.

I just made level 50 like three days ago. Good thing I bought the LE version of Halo 4. FML.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Not a deal

Neither is the entire "Steam Deal Thread," and that takes up much more space, and for a much longer time period than threads like this that actually help people. That thread is populated by people who certainly know better, and that the thread should be in "Bragging rights thread," instead. So, they obviously just pick on the newer people about that issue.

Have a code to trade if anyone has any Xbox live points. Already quit Halo for CoD.

you don't.

You have to have unredeemed codes that are worth increments of MSP (100, 400, 800, etc)

Oh, so that is what this email was. I was very suspicious of it and thought it was some scam.
