Halo 4's Master Chief isn't the Master Chief you remember

OXM UK: "He's a byword for endurance, the one constant in a universe rocked by Covenant invasion, but according to 343 Industries, Master Chief hasn't made the transition from Halo 3 to Halo 4 psychologically unscathed." (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Missing codpiece, eh? That's going to make frontal assaults on Covenant positions tricky.

This concerns be too. I grew up on CE during highschool. Them "changing" masterchief does make me feel like this new trilogy will not sit well with me.

They gave him a whole new set of armor in Halo 2 (MK VI) that got rid of the need for health packs and let you modify your player spartan's armor to variants in Halo 3. Reach sort of expanded that with Mk V suits.

This is nothing new.

I rather curious how he got or made new stuff while being frozen in the back half a UNSC frigate that got cut off from the front half when the Ark/Earth Portal went down.

Yeah but how can you change it while he's been floating in space?

New armour makes no sense
I mean at the end of Halo 3 MasterChief goes into the chamber and is locked in hybernating, the only other entity onboard the vessel is Cortana...So how on earth does his armour all of a sudden 'change' whilst asleep? Did Cortana wake up some nano droids in his chamber or what?? Even in Halo it made no sense, at the end of Halo 2 MasterChief shoots ontop of a vessel and says 'Finishing the fight' but in 3 he shoots down from outterspace onto Earth and BAM new armour!

Nope, the same armour in Halo 2 as 3.

Same here. I don't see how his armor can be changed when he is out cold in a half destroyed ship. Plus the Spartan program had been done for YEARS. I doubt there was just some prototype armor sitting in the ship somewhere.

Can you read? When did SuperSaiyan4 say ANYTHING about the armor changing in Halo 2? He mentioned the armor changing in Halo 4 and Halo CE only. His comment about the ending of Halo 2 and beginning of Halo 3 is correct too. All his points are valid.

Franky said it would be explained in the game how the armor changes. The trailer was CG, just used as a teaser. The game won't start off like that, it's just to tease fans and hint at some of the new stuff. Like the silencer chief puts on the pistol.

Your right he did just read it again...wasn't being negative anyways, no need for you to be either.

Should be interesting with sprint and booster like in vanquish only not that extreme.

Halo could use some speed up gameplay.

I don't know if it was just me but did anyone else notice master chief putting a silencer on his pistol at the end of the teaser trailer?
