Confirmed by Frank O'Connor, the Flood will not be appearing in Halo 4.
Now I am truly excited for Halo 4
same lmao. The score already jumped 2 entire points for me now haha. Yes by that fact alone :P
Frankie stated we won't be fighting the flood, I'm sure they will appear. The flood are an integral part of Halo's story.
Doesn't mean the series can't move on.
I'm not sure why I'm getting disagrees, but the flood are a part of the story. Halo:CE remake hints at the flood being in H4, the books talk about forerunners, precursors and the flood etc.
@lategamer Theres no denying that at all. Without The Flood, There would be no Halo rings. But it doesn't mean the series can't move on to a new foe. Hell even the mention of fighting covenant seems to disappoint some people
For the record, I hate fighting the flood, and I really disliked those levels in H2 and H3 (it made me hate playing as the Arbiter, even though I liked him as a character). We know there will be a 3rd enemy, but the Flood may still be in the game. I'm not saying we fight them,but there's a strong chance there in the game. If the Precursers are in there, Didact, 343GS, and others we may def. see the Flood, or at the very least the flood will be referenced.
I'm eager to learn more about the new threat. We've seen that grunts and elites will be back, but even that seems like a bit of a stretch. While they are iconic enemies, 343 needs to be bold enough to create *new* iconic foes that will force us to consider our tactics differently.
*ponders* .....how about terrorists and Russians for the next 1000 installments? lol
That's surprising. i guess they're saving that for Halo 5, hehe.
All together now... AMEN TO THAT!
Goodbye Flood and hello Precursors!
I hate the flood little popcorn popping bastards!
flood was annoying
The Flood is one of the greatest enemies of "All Times"! Its ok they aren't in Halo 4. However, they'd better make it back in the Halo games at some point.
IF you think the Flood are gone for good, you are sadly mistaken folks. They may not be "in", and I say that loosely, but they'll be back. The Precursors created the Flood as a punishment for the Forerunner rebellion. The Flood will still have a role to play.
I hope they are in 5 or 6 either way can't wait for new enemy whatever it may be
They most likely will be, but I'm just glad to get a bit of a break from them. They're annoying as hell.
