No that was a real actor in a spartan suit. Probably for promotion. Look at the arm. It's the halo 3 armor.

"too be featured"?

How did this article get passed?

Still on topic:

Looks great! I can't wait! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Also (an odd reference) if you watch the episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where Odo was on a ship when they attacked the Changeling's homeworld and the Romulan was a changeling, Chief looks like that Romulan guy.

Should be revealed right at the end of halo 6, I think the cheif should die right at the end, but just before, he should take of his helmet

It would be cool if it uses Kinect to map your own face onto Masterchief .

yeah, maybe saying that he should be was a bit OTT. I do think that he should reveal his face right at the end, maybe he could be a really old man, then go into retirement?

Yes some older code still exists but they've totally gutted most of the systems and overhauled them. So on a technicality you can say it's the same engine, but in a totally different context than say CoD/Madden/insert any other yearly franchise that looks the same as its predecessor.

I thought 343 comes from 343 guilty spark, the mailbox is named after the office..

could be wrong but thats where I always thought the 343 came from.
Shepherd 214  +   1271d ago
It does come from the character 343 Guilty Spark. Either the guy above only plays MP or he doesn't play halo at all because it's a very important and prominent character in the entire first trilogy.

Halo 4 is looking like an excellent and worthy sequel, and the music is beautiful.
jdiggitty  +   1271d ago
343 comes from the AI character 343 Guilty Spark from Halo:CE, who was the monitor of the first Halo game

Whats with all the Live Action ads

Don't get me wrong I can't wait for Halo 4 but I want to see more that amazing gameplay not live action stuff.

It's like E3...they showed a 2 minute live action trailer then had 30 seconds at the end showing a montage of some cutscenes. I man we had a level shown but I want to see an epic Halo 4 story trailer.

I think we'll get one more closer to launch, but I think 343i want to avoid what Bungie did to Reach and recreate the same experience we had from Halo CE. They don't want to spoil the story too much for us, so they're just giving us tidbits and small gameplay footage of the campaign.
Wizziokid  +   1272d ago
Look's amazing no doubt
greenpowerz  +   1272d ago
Riding Giant Mechs? Hope I seen that right! A mission on that giant truck while it's moving would be epic. Love the darker yet still halo art style. Looks like Halo Wars art direction which is the best look of all halo's.

Yummm even Wolfkill's hair is hot.

You wont be dissapointed - my brother was never a Halo fan only because he thought it was too mainstream like the same reason people here hate on COD but when he played Halo 3 he was hooked and went back and played the other 2 Halo plus read all the books.

I recommend you give Halo 3 a shot if you already have a 360, you can pick it up used for about 15 bucks and the amount of content that H3 holds is worth way more than 15 bucks.

Also if you end up liking 3 and cant wait till Nov for your Halo fix pick the Halo CE Anniversary game....madnessss!

Halo music always gives me chills.
Belking  +   1272d ago
That is one thing that sets it apart from other titles. The music is just breathtaking.
Angels3785  +   1271d ago
Please don't take this as a fanboy remark because I'm not taking shots at halo. I feel that killzone has great music too (IM NOT SAYING ONE IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER) seeing as the composer for the killzone games in none other than Hanns Zimmer, the same genius behind the dark knight, inception, etc. Halo and killzone both to me have GREAT music!

This is going to be so good, this is my most anticipated game of the year. The music, the art direction, its all looking so utterly fantastic!

343 has really pulled out all the stops and I cant wait to open my LE game and pop it in.

Just the blood, sweat, tears and effort they're putting into this is unreal. 343i isn't playing around people, this is serious. Nov 6, Halo 4 has my support come launch.

I once told a friend, "With Microsoft exclusives, it's more quality over quantity". This trailer just reassured me of that.
Angels3785  +   1271d ago
Dont mean to sound fanboyish, but what sony/wii exclusives are BAD? ID say all the console makers push out quality exclusives, some just release more than others. Even if this game reviews with perfect 10s it would be on the same level as games like mario galaxy, uncharted, zelda, MGS4. No better no worse. Its just that microsoft releases less exclusives annually. so it many be about quality, but other release quality AND quality.

@ mikecosgrove

Gears of war 2 and 3 IMO surpass uncharted 2 standards since it has a solid 4 player drop in and out campaign in each as well as great graphics and solid online play.

As great as uncharted 2 is, it's multiplayer pales in comparison to gears of wars multiplayer.....standard wise.

Sorry but that's just me

@ MikeCosgrove

You are talking "standards" not graphics. Standard wise Gears 2 does stand up to Uncharted 2 and IMO surpasses it. There is much more do to in Gears aside from just looking at graphics. There is just so much more content in Gears 2 than there is in Uncharted 2. Uncharted 2 has a great cinematic gaming experience in it's single player campaign. It's multiplayer aspect is horrible as well as the overall AI.

If you are talking "standards" then Yes, I think so. If you are talking just "graphics" as your single means of "standards" then I would agree with you.

After the recent FPSs like Call of Duty I can appreciate Halo more. Why ?
1) Large levels- you can take different approaches in dealing with enemies. COD is linear.
2) Drivable vehicles- while in COD the most you are limited to is on rail segments ( hope this will change)
3)Amazing music
4) Genuine sci-fi- eg. the Superintendent from HAlo ODST, COrtana.

StreetsofRage  +   1271d ago
Halo really is in a class by itself. Truly the definition of masterpiece. The imagination, the creativity, the music, the story, and the gameplay is second to none.

The most skillful FPS on the market just got better folks.

And it's also amazing to see a game with huge battlefields and still have top notch graphics with great textures. Something that most FPS lack with their box battlefields.
swice  +   1271d ago
I love how excited I am. It feels like the Halo 2 release all over again. Man that was awesome :-)
A7XEric  +   1271d ago
Until we played Halo 2's campaign...

And then got it rubbed in our face how horrible it was after watching the LE dvd where Bungie admits the game was shit, scrapped it, and rebuilt the campaign in 9 months. Overall solid game, but huge disappointment.
munish23  +   1271d ago
The story and dialogue in Halo 2 was probably some of the best in the series though imo. Campaign was a let down I guess, especially the ending, but learning about the Covenant was really cool. Music was amazing as well.
swice  +   1270d ago
Halo 2 is one of my favorite games. Period. I don't pay attention to the people that complain about it.
chukamachine  +   1271d ago
Already seen some mp, looks very close to reach graphics.

I don't like the live action ads. Kinda cheating. Like selling a plastic plane aimed at children and have some amazing sound and camera angles. Kid gets toy and he's like wtf. Wasn't like this on the tv.

But i'm guessing americans love the fake shit, Transformers over the top sillyness says hi.

Call me a troll, whatever. Same old thing.

You'll be finishing the fight for along time, because MS has nothing else.


Rinse and repeat.

If you own uncharted 3 or golden abyss your a hypocrite

If you own killzone 3 your a hypocrite

If you own gran turismo 5 your a hypocrite

If you own god of war (especialy considering there are 6 not counting the HD rereleases) your a hypocrite

If you own the total war series your a hypocrite

If you own battlefield your a hypocrite

If you own COD your a hypocrite

If you own Mario or Zelda your a hypocrite

I can go on for hours.

Notice multiple platforms?

Btw you can't use spinoffs. Halo wars was a different genre set in the halo universe. Halo CE Ann was a remake. Odst was an expansion. Halo 4 is only the 4 th official halo sequel.

Point is M$ isn't the only company that relies of top notch games to sell. Notice how all the games I mentioned are awesome rather than bashing one like you fanboys do?

I'll agree with Microsoft recycling their exclusive franchises these past 3 years, but this game looks way better than Reach on a graphical level (though I am curious why they've removed motion blur even though it was in Reach. Seems like a step back.)

And it just sounds like you don't like sci-fi. You're probably into bland military shooters with color palettes composed of gray, brown, and sand colors with half-baked forgettable stories in a game universe not worth caring about.
triplev16  +   1271d ago
There's no reason to downplay games that others enjoy. In a way I agree with your argument but the same can be said of other companies. And while some games DO get stale over time—IMO Halo is not one of them. Give me a solid Halo every 2 to 3 years and I'll buy it so long as the quality that I've known to expect comes along with it—it's the same like I do for quality games on other consoles.

Halo 4 is the best game this year. Usually games have either Quality or Quantity but Halo 4 has both. I cant wait to get the Halo 4 console bundle on Nov 6.

I have played many fps but Halo 3 was simply the best. I never had Xbox live because of a number of issues with my old Xbox 360. No network adaptor, 256 MB memory card and expensive Xbox live but i still enjoyed playing split screen with my brother and friends almost every day.

That same excitement has only been matched and perhaps surpassed by Socom Confrontation on my PS3. Partly due to the fact of never experiencing Halo 3 online multiplayer.
Finally i will get my chance with Halo 4 on release day to experience it fully

I'm not really understanding the hype behind the graphics for this. I've never owned a 360, so I can only assume these types of graphics are almost unheard of for an xbox exclusive.

IMO Gears 3 looks a whole lot more impressive than whats been shown of Halo 4. Obviously there's still time to improve the textures/details before release, but even just looks meh too me.
QuantumWake  +   1271d ago
What exactly isn't attracting you about it? The facial animations are a BIG step-up from Halo: Reach, we finally have a true 720p Halo with FXAA, and from the looks of things 343 still retained the open-world/sandbox feel of previous Halo games.

Great facial animation:

Amazing looking environments:

Open environments, vehicles and all :D -

Dammm I'm impressed, 343 seems to be doing a helluva job with so much pressure to deliver on a franchise that has a huge fanbase with high expectations. As a longtime Halo fan, I was rightfully worried when Bungie stepped away but now I'm thankful micro has put the future of 1 of my favorite franchises in very capable hands.
