[SPOILER] Halo 4 Leaked One Month Before Release - Prologue Cinematic & Legendary Ending Revealed

DSOGaming writes: "Remember those gorgeous comments about PC gaming dying, DRM to be the only way to keep games safe, piracy is killing PC and blah blah blah? Well, X360′s upcoming hit, Halo 4, has just been leaked on various torrent sites as we speak, almost a month before release. But wait, there is more. This is not a mere rumored version but a real one, coming from a scene group. In other words, it’s as legit as it can get." (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Kind of an odd prologue there.
Shadonic  +   897d ago
Prolouge is beast why do you think its odd?
Snookies12  +   897d ago
I didn't say it was bad, I just said it was a bit odd. Wasn't really expecting that.
Old McGroin  +   896d ago
@ Snookies

Shadonic didn't say you said it was bad, he asked why you thought it was odd.
yeahokchief  +   895d ago
It's odd because this is a series that has always been about a generic hero space marine and in this game they are trying to make the story and characters more DEEP by making him more "human" aka more emotional.

I think the problem was that they tied up the ending for the whole story too well with the 2nd game. How many times can you save the world before it gets old?

But whatever. The story isn't the huge selling point with this type of game. The thing I liked most about Halo 1&2 was the enemy AI in the singleplayer. I love how they'd freak out if you hit them with a sticky or how for some enemies you'd have to get them to drop their shields. You'd have to coordinate your different weapons and choose a good combination to have on you at all times to get through each area effectively.

And then you have the mulitplayer. So many hours lost to Halo 1 in college. I was very unhappy with how they nerfed the pistol to hell with 2, but the battle rifle was okay. It felt less competitive and less tense because with the original pistol, if you played no shields with 16 players over LAN it would be 1 shot to the head for a kill and 2 to the body which made for some really freaking crazy and intense matches where you raced to 50 kills or whatever per team.

Too bad M$ couldn't make a system that didn't rrod so much. They should put halo 4 on PC.

I thought that was a pretty sweet prologue.
Gotta love the tone, I am suddenly more interested in this Halo than before.
SilentNegotiator  +   896d ago
So the "leaked" video of the prologue is with real people, like the ads of the last 2? Interesting. And the "ending" gives away absolutely nothing.

Sniff, sniff.....anyone else smell intention? And marketing?

If MS wanted it down, it definitely would have been down in less than 4+ hours. All 360 games get leaked anyway....and this story sure is getting Halo 4 a lot of free publicity.

It took me, like, a minute to figure that out. Really, really impressive work.
SJPFTW  +   896d ago
Snookie have you read the books that provide more of the backstory? I guess that is why you thought it was odd.
neogeo  +   896d ago
You read Halo books? NERD ALERT!!!!
ShadesMoolah  +   896d ago
@neogeo
I find it amusing that you would raise the "NERD ALERT!!" over someone reading a book, when playing video games is clearly more, ehem... nerdy.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, as in that case I am certainly a nerd myself then.
killerhog  +   895d ago
@Shadesmoolah

Playing video games isn't nerdy but geeky and geeky doesn't necessarily mean nerdy. In fact, most gamers do bad in school lol. It's why the media at one point portrayed gamers as slackers/outcasts. Also playing games is no longer a geek thing times have changed. You have adults, kids, woman, core, casual, racist, misogynist , ghetto, rich, poor, nerdy, geeky, preppy, etc. all playing games.

@Snookies12,
Kind of odd? What!

That was the baddest-ass prologue ever!
JC_Denton  +   896d ago
I'm glad that they might actually be going back to making a compelling single player experience again. Halo 3 and Reach's (especially Reach's) campaign's were souless.
vortis  +   897d ago
Why am not surprised DSO was all over this? LOL

I wonder if Microsoft will hit them with a cease and desist?
TOGC  +   897d ago
They didn't upload the videos, someone else did. The videos will be taken down from YouTube though.

@theonegamerjc2012

17 hours later from your comment, it's still up...
TOGC  +   896d ago
This is a different video <,<, both got taken down.

it's n4g, sony turf
BitbyDeath  +   896d ago
That's just peoples way of saying they didn't get shivers down their spine not that he didn't.

I'd be happy if they just got rid of the Disagree button altogether, it only causes trouble.
starchild  +   896d ago
Exactly. You can't be positive about anything relating to the 360.

Personally the PC is my main platform and the PS3 would probably be my next preferred platform, but it annoys me how biased many of the Sony fanboys are.

Halo 4 looks good so far, enough said.
andibandit  +   895d ago
@starchild, if your next preferred platform had been 360, you'd have more disagrees than agrees.
GearSkiN  +   896d ago
I'm really happy 343i is mixin it up putting a havy cgi cut scenes are awesome I'm glad they did this. Some of the scene is so real that it even fooled my gf. Man this game is epic! I watched about the first chapter and wow... is what I can say.

I'm not sure I like master chief's ninja moves lol. Still, awesome intro to the game.
seanpitt23  +   896d ago
It's a shame its been leaked month before release
ginsunuva  +   896d ago
Happens to many many games. Nothing new.
modesign  +   896d ago
so john is a white guy.lol
wwm0nkey  +   896d ago
We have known this for years. Actually we have known this since before Halo CE was out thanks to The Fall of Reach book.
Zoron007  +   896d ago
The Fall of Reach was not out before Halo CE but you're right we have known this for years.
wwm0nkey  +   896d ago
@Zoron007

Nope, The Fall of Reach came out on October 30th and Halo 1 came out November 15th :P
AO1JMM  +   895d ago
Where have you been? John 117 has been known to be white for a very long time now.

Books! Read them.
Tetsujin  +   896d ago
Not a bad movie, however the game is heavily based on multiplayer, and a lot of people (Notice I didn't say everyone) are still going to flood the online and not even touch the story mode.
ninjagoat  +   896d ago
That prologue in time will give 343 a whole new direction and a darker tale to tell with the spartans. I like it i love how they where used for other things other than just protecting earth.
ForRealz17  +   896d ago
Sweet! Now I won't have to play the game.

You probably weren't even planning on playing it anyway.
TCG_Returns  +   896d ago
So much for finishing the fight.
Guess Halo 5,6 & 7 will have to do it.lol
Muffins1223  +   896d ago
ITs acully a different fight,with the diadict.....halo's universe is so big that they can create a set of halo's for just one thing,not just about the covenant.....
aviator189  +   896d ago
It was pretty obvious bungie wanted the series to continue. Otherwise, they wouldn't have gone through the trouble to make that halo 3 legendary ending.
FarCryLover182  +   896d ago
Even once this "trilogy" is over, there will be another for sure. I don't see Halo coming to and end after Halo 6 unless sales are bad.
PtRoLLFacE  +   896d ago
I dunno if anyone has seen the part with the ghost chase, for some reason that scene looked so freaking badass, cortana calls him cowboy, epic moment
aviator189  +   896d ago
Haha, that was a pretty great scene.
ceballos77mx  +   896d ago
Wow!! wasn't expecting that intro and the level of gfx it really pulls you in, good to see 343 is taking care of bungies baby.

Oh and the master chief cannot be replased.
NYC_Gamer  +   896d ago
Halo 4 footage made me buy the previous titles in the franchise...I guess its about time i get to experience Halo since many say the story is epic along with solid gameplay.

TXIDarkAvenger  +   896d ago
Watched 2 minutes of the intro and some gameplay. Man, I am really impressed. Graphically, this game looks amazing, best looking in the series. I'm even more hyped for this game after seeing that.
supraking951  +   896d ago
Halo 4 leaked? That sucks, I wanted to see Halo 4 sales vs 360 Blops 2 sales head to head. Now Blops 2 will be the clear winner for sure since so many 360 gamers have spare modded systems

Hmm...so you think Black Ops 2 won't leak?and it doesn't really matter which game sells the most..Halo 4 &Black Ops2 both will be successful this winter.

Shadonic  +   896d ago
Yea sales wont really show which games better its kind of a bandwagon thing most people i know are buying black ops for Zombies alone.
aviator189  +   896d ago
For some reason, the ending reminds me of Star Wars. The imagery, anyways.
stage88  +   896d ago
Well that was an in impressive ending :/
Kennytaur  +   896d ago
I really hate it when douchebags leak stuff like this, it kills off a lot of buzz and hype and excitement. Surely the true fans would want to experience the beginning and end while playing the final release version. I'm not watching the ending, I don't want to spoil it.
JKelloggs  +   892d ago
The people who don't want it spoiled, just don't look at the videos/articles, simple.
Kennytaur  +   892d ago
Easier said than done, this kind of information has a way to get to you, guerilla style. And why would you want it spoiled?
mt  +   896d ago
master chief looks baddass.
Belking  +   896d ago
That was awesome. This is GOTY folks.
stage88  +   896d ago
Believe it or not Black Ops II will probably get GOTY.
BitbyDeath  +   896d ago
I sure hope not.
This or Borderlands 2 should get it IMO
stage88  +   896d ago
Actually good point. Boarder lands 2 is a big front runner. Also I don't actually want blops II to get GOTY. I'm just saying its a possibility.

The people who spoil these things can burn in hell. Seriously. They're idiotic trolls and I hope Microsoft catches whoever stole the games and does the worst legally-acceptable thing they can to them.
mt  +   896d ago
it is easy don't watch the video to not spoil this on yourself, don't just throw people and burn them in hell on your own.
OrKuun  +   894d ago
People are MESSAGING RANDOM HALO PLAYERS ON XBOX LIVE SPOILING THE ENDING FOR LAUGHS. I can't even play any of my Halo games anymore because I'll get a message spoiling the whole damn thing, and it's not all that uncommon.

They're annoying, worthless idiots and need a freakin' kick in the head.
