We apply a critical eye to the available info, and craft a picture of what players can look forward to in 343 Industries’ highly anticipated Halo sequel.
cant wait for more details as they emerge. I have a feeling the forerunner are the creators of MC and like it says in the article. He is a reclaimer but what is he trying to reclaim and what new kinds of enemies will he encounter? From the trailer, that planet reminds me of unicron trying to gobble up the falling ship. Once inside, there could be anything and everything he will face. I am most curious about the musical score. The orchestra ensemble for the previous games was what set the tone to be very dramatic at times. Music is key and hopefully this new trilogy will expand on that and bring new musical compositions to the table while staying true to the dramatic effect.
I'm also curious about the music. It seem to have a very different tone than what we are used to, but I hope the original Halo theme is still present. I dig what was in the trailer, but we also need some familiar sounds to connect us to the past games too.
I truly hope 343 can bring back the music of score Halo Ce in part 4 or at least a little. Really all I want to feel is that I'm playing Halo again.
I think the next trilogy is coming for the next Xbox.
I only disagreed because of the "Forerunner are the creators of MC" bit, their involvement in the human race was much bigger than one guy. Read Halo: Cryptum if you haven't already and remember that Miranda Keyes was also called a Reclaimer during Halo 2.
i will be buying live again when this comes out no doubt!
Best profile picture eva lol
glad you like it made it myself :P
This was a very thorough write-up. I've tried to remain cautiously optimistic, but it's hard. I'm just so excited from both Halo: Anniversary and Halo 4. Can't wait for more info, though I doubt that'll be any time soon.
I love halo it's by far the best FPS universe.I still play halo 3 and I used to play halo 2(it's now offline :( )
Cant you play halo 2 on your 360? I heard you can. Theres alway halo 3 for $5
Yea I played halo 2 on my 360 but they dont support xbox live for original xbox games
More powerful space animals to kill with overhauled gameplay, game mechanics, more mature story telling and insight of the the beginning of the master race of space animals. Better graphics . Exotic environments, better weapons, better features, better online features and darker atmosphere in general. Fast action packed and mind blowing. More shocking than Halo combat evolved in presentation. The more advanced/exotic and older space animals will bring unreal AI and fury. The *Flood* Beasts will be hell with other space animals that live in that part of the universe.
It's gonna be different without elites and grunts...
who knows maybe chief will fight a group of them that didn't want to make peace with the humans. Or hes stuck in a different dimension in time.....duhn duhn duhn
One of the biggest appeals to MC is the mistory surrounding him. People love that he is the defacto leader, and it feels like the world depends on him. He is just better at everything than everyone else is. He is a supper soldier. I hope they don't humanize him too much. Humans are boring when they are just humans.
You have a very good point, though in the books they do expand more on his human side, without sacrificing what makes him so much larger than life. Hopefully the game can strike that balance. The story of the Spartan; who they are, how they were created, and where they fit in the world now (in the timeline), is such an interesting one. I hope 343 can get it across the way it deserves.
Too stoked for Halo 4. I know a lot of people are worried about the fact that Bungie isn't doing it. But honestly when you think about it, the Bungie that made Reach isn't the same Bungie that made CE. Just think of all of the people that have come and gone in that company since the first Halo. Sure, a lot of key members stayed, but the developer is largely a totally different group of people now. So what makes 343 any different than that, other than a different company name? There's people that have worked on everything from Metroid to Killzone to MGS at 343. I'm honestly VERY optimistic to see what they bring to the table.
I agree, I believe 343 are made up of true fans of Halo, that being said they won't be as "fatigued" with the franchise as Bungie was obviously becoming.
Thanks for making me feel better bro :) I don't have an Xbox anymore (go ahead and disagree for the hate) after Halo 3. I actually miss Halo, maybe I'll get the next Xbox, because I'm sure this won't be an Xbox 360 title or trilogy.
i wonder if i can freeze myslef untill Halo 4 comes out?
Dont count on those otters....
Hahahaha i see what you did there LMAO
