Microsoft Store posts brief overview of 'Halo' 2014's story

Examiner: "It wasn't that long ago that Microsoft and 343 Industries announced that they were working on another Halo game, we know, big shocker. But what was unexpected was that it wasn't instantly called Halo 5. To this day it remains simply Halo, and you've been able to pre-order the title for some time now."

Bam! There is my Halo with some more details than the console it hits :) Next holiday is already shaping up quite nicely.

Kamikaze81904d ago

Already shaping up? What else has already been confirmed? Only one I can think of is Destiny...

RuleNumber51904d ago

Division, The Witcher 3, FIFA 15, etc. How are you not excited?!

Kamikaze81904d ago

Like they said, I wonder what's hunting sentient life? Better not be the Flood again...

Could be the Promethean's since the Didact could still be alive. He never liked humans after he lead Prometheans against humans in the Forerunner/Human war

You see, and that's what I didn't like about Reach (among other things). It just didn't seem right without the Flood in there somehow. I'm limiting myself to only one console next gen and I'm not going with an Xbox One, but Halo will be the one series I'll sorely miss. I still get pumped when I hear the theme. Probably always will. You've got to give credit where credit it due. Even with it's shortcomings, the Halo series has been a tremendous amount of fun.

It could be either the flood or promethean. The prometheans are highly unlikely as those operate under the forerunner. It can't be the precursor as they are also a sentient life-form same goes for the forerunners. So my guess is it will be the flood again or some form of it.

Hooby1904d ago

Precursors became the flood. THe flood we fought it previous games was a silent fart compared to the 10 ton dump that the flood truly is.

spicelicka1904d ago

I think it might be the Didact's program. His plan to stop the flood was to digitize sentient life instead of eliminating it as the halos did. From what we know, the prometheans are previous humans made that way by the didact. Perhaps he now wants to convert himself and all other sentient life into digital lifeforms too?

Possible but let's see.

Guys, Master Chief is the Sentient Life, damn.

"Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted,"

In an effort, to stay alive where sentient (having the power of sense perception or sensation; conscious aka humans)life is mercilessly hunter.

It's just a posh way of stating that he's being mercilessly hunted.

I can't wait for Master Chief's next adventure. 343 said the game would be 60FPS too. My goodness, this is gonna be good.

ma1asiah1904d ago

Not just 60 FPS but in full 1080p resolution as well

To name but a few sites

"343i also announced that the game will run at 60 frames per second along with full 1080P resolution. Be on the look out for more details as they come in."

Sounds like that data chip could have something to do with Cortana. Maybe he's looking for her

She better be back, Cortana was part of the Chief as a character. She can't be gone for good.

I hope this game lets people catch up with the story for those who didn't really get into Spartan Ops. I hear that theres a lot of story content which the next game will probably continue from

Shadonic1904d ago

I think if she were to be coming back, it would be way too early.

towelie12881904d ago
