Halo 4 Game Informer scans
interesting, looking forward on how cortana rampancy is going to play out
And the great thing about the impressive graphics is they are able to convey great emotion on Cortana now. The game really looks superb now IMO.
story sounds very interesting. I'm however very disappointed with the loadout system.... sorry, I don't agree that a halo game should have loadouts... But I'll still give a try.
As a long time dedicated Halo fan, all I can say after looking at this article is WOW!
No game should have weapon loadouts.
Plus the game will be using motion capture. So far the campaign sounds brilliant, this is definately my most wanted game of 2012 now that I've completed ME3.
That info is crazy. I didn't read all of it as it started going into a little too much detail for me regarding the campaign. But Cortana rampancy. Nooooo! Poor Cortana. After all the trouble I went through to rescue you from that absolutely horrid level on Halo 3 you end up going crazy. I would try and hold you but I'd end up holding myself, on account of you being, you know, a hologram. Maybe your actual body is still alive. But to be honest, even if it is, its way too crusty and wrinkly for me to care. Am I vain person? Maybe. But, behind all this thick Mjolnir armour, I'm just a squishy piece of meat. :( Man I need to get laid.......
Cortana better not die on me!! I was also surprised to see so much covenant on what i thought would be a human forerunner plant. I thought they would be gone and it would just be me the flood and forerunners who wanted to kill me for my awesome new armor.
Forerunners, Flood and I. Sounds so messed up that even Jim Carrey would would run away. I wonder what role the Elites are going to have on this. What's even more exciting aside from a new enemy is the thought of new alien weapons and vehicles! Remember how the Needler and plasma pistols etc were so weird and unique when they were unveiled? Go on 343, show us that you can think outside the box. What has happened to weapon design in games today? It's all generic crap. Remember the good old days of: * Cerebral Bore (f***ing genius!) * BFG- Beast! * Redeemer- a camera guided mini nuke! * Needler- lovely pink death * Almost any Turok, Unreal Tournament or Quake weapon Ah....those were the days....
Remember how the Needler and plasma pistols etc were so weird and unique when they were unveiled? Go on 343, show us that you can think outside the box. Pfffft. Keep dreaming.
I like the faded army green that the chief is sporting. The Halo 3 green was a little too bright and did not show the chiefs wear and tear from all f those awesome battles - Halo 4 is starting to look more gritty and realistic, the new Red vs Blue colors are less toned down now also.
Look I know it's just Halo again, -But I have to admit I'm excited about this one.. Yes the systems are really old now, but I must say, it looks Pretty good.. Especially since now it's really hard to keep making the games look better when were starting to hit the systems limits.. -But wow, it looks like they have done an amazing job.. I can't wait to check this out, and that's coming from someone who mostly plays PS3 Looks like this one is going to do some serious numbers once again
I actually want a 360 now just to play this game.
Chiefs armor looks pretty bad ass. Subtle changes that really add a lot in my opinion. Lookin' good 343!!
How would you even know? Are you saying this based off of text you read on the internet about a game that's still 7-8 months from release?
I hadn't realised anyone had actually played Halo 4 yet? :/ I'm hoping they can breath a bit of life into the Halo universe. It was starting to get as stale as CoD.
True that, I'm a massive fan of the series but I can admit that it needed a shake up, I actually like what I'm hearing from 343 so far....
The Prophet of Truth has spoken!
The last 3 entries in the series couldn't have been more different from each other. At least single-player campaign wise...
I like the dual story with Cortana and of course the whole Master Chief save the world thing. Only read a little, but it seems that 343 has done a good job to set a foundation for a good trilogy.
Whoa,the elits look way cooler
This will be the best looking game of the year I kid you not. Halo4 for the world.
cant wait to see the game in motion, looks great.
The Spartan 4 suits looks freakin cool!
Looks quite impressive. I haven't been playing much of Halo since Halo 3, but seeing this has got me very interested.
Wow I am sad also just for those who are mad about no elites it states they wont be in COMPETITIVE multiplayer so there is still custom games and forge to be one probably
Elites probably aren't in multiplayer. Here's my reasoning: 1.) Multiplayer takes play in the UNSC Infiniy. In there, they are virtual rooms that allow the Spartan-IV's to train. That's the "story" of H4's multplayer. Why would Elites be on the ship? 2.) Elites take time and resources to develop. The more time/customization/etc. spent on them means less on Spartan IVs. Hence, I think it's unlikely.
Ikr and master chief is going to meet with the infinity during the single player, that it mean the chief us going to meet more Spartans, looking forward to it
I'm not the biggest Xbox fan, but I must say this looks incredible....finally my Xbox will see the light of day again.
Now this looks ace.
Looking good. Really looking forward to continuing the single player story and too see what is in store for Chief and Cortana! Lets not judge too much about the MP just yet however.
Looks so good, didn't read past the first mission section but I assume there's a three way battle happening, a human resistance and the elites who are both at war because they've been inside the shield world and aren't aware of the war and truce that happened outside MEANWHILE some kind of new enemy is there, is it Forerunners? I have no idea, but I am keen to find out when the game comes out :)
Campaign sounds incredible. Spartan Ops is probably my most anticipated new feature. FIVE new co-op missions every week FOR FREE?! Sign me up, stat. I'm still not sold on their multiplayer changes though. I'm fine with earning credits to unlock new armor abilities and such, but I still want to have to find weapons on the maps and not be able to start out with any weapon out of the sandbox. One thing I've always loved about Halo's MP is that it's in a very controlled environment. Yes there were loadouts in Reach, but they were all pre-selected and tailored to the map/gametype. And most importantly anyone could pick them and was on the same playing field. No one who logged in 100 hours had any sort of gameplay advantage or extra gameplay options over someone who just started the game. I'm just afraid 343 is going to stray from that philosophy. One big problem though. Cortana was already reaching rampancy at the end of Halo 3, how did she manage to still be alive after another 4 years in space?
I'm not even much of a Halo fan, but this looks incredible!
ill wait for gameplay. pictures always look amazing until we see videos and it looks worse but so far it looks like its gonna be a good one.
I'm a big Sony fanboy(at least I admit it, right?), but Halo 4 looks awesome! I hope it doesn't end up like other game series/franchises that tried to copy COD instead of keeping their own identity *cough* Insomniac *cough*!
