XMNR: A leak on Friday from the packaging one of the McFarlane toys for Halo 4 reveals two of the mysterious enemies in the Xbox 360 shooter. If you don't want anything spoiled, we suggest you stop right now before continuing.
I almost didn't read it, but I did any way. I'm not really a fan of spoilers. I know that next to no information is known about these new enemies, but by looking at them I am kind of disappointed. Not what I was expecting at all. I at least hope that battling them in Halo 4 will be fun.
Clearly a toy differs from gameplay footage... EDIT, for a second glance: Sorry for the aggression. I see people complaining despite Game Informer's downpour in Halo 4 information.
No problem, guy. I didn't read any aggression in that. Also, it's just the internet. I was trying to be spoiler free in my response. I had my hopes set on something completely different that I did not want to discuss. You're right though, "Clearly a toy differs from gameplay footage... " As for the complaining, I too spend time on Halo Waypoint. I know what you mean. People can be entitled little shits.
LIGHT SPOILER Well, from reading Ghosts of Onyx, I remember there being something reminiscent of the "Watcher" in there...I think. Just looking at it brings that to mind. The plot thickens...
Something tells me these will be more annoying to fight than an entire army of Flood Stalkers.
there is still one or more enemys to be unveiled ;) Look carefully people. Crwaler and watcher are not the only new ones.
I hate how McFarlane is all about Halo now. I guess I'm lucky that I still have NECA.
I'm not looking, I'm not looking, I'm not looking...*haven't looked yet :p * I really don't want to be spoiled for this upcoming Halo game.
I'm just posting to say that I agree. Now excuse me while I make a hasty exit from this topic, lest I give in to temptation. *Flees in the opposite direction*
For those who have read the books and watched the terminals in Halo Anniversary, I think we are hoping for a certain enemy that has yet to be spoken of in the games. Please let it be them................SPOILER: I am of course speaking about the prometheans. Ever since I read about them, I've wanted to fight them, and who knows, maybe even the Didact will be there going by the hints in the final terminal.
Just to be clear to those who haven't read the Halo books, the Prometheans were the soldier caste of the Forerunner civilization who fought and beat the original version of the Human Race after they somehow managed o beat back the Flood.
How do you play with those guys in multiplayer, maybe they will have a version that's like the Elites, or maybe the make the gameplay similar to Halo: Combat Evolved where you play as only a Spartan, I don' know?
All indications are that you only play as Spartans in multiplayer.
You play as Spartan IVs in Halo 4 multiplayer.
343 has said in the past that you only play as spartans in multiplayer

Those little guys are gonna be annoying, I already know it.
new covenant and flood chars would not constitute something completely new. nice try halo
I think it's quite apparent they are neither Covenant nor Flood.
I am keeping an open mind.
How am I supposed to take those enemies seriously? I never have and never will. It's ridiculous!
So we're shooting dogs and butterflies? Man, I sure hope those Prometheans we're rumored to fight make up for this.
They might not even me the main baddies we face. I imagine Prometheans to be more humanoid, like what the rest of the Forerunners are. These could be support units for them. We don't know.
These new creatures look pretty cool. I think the Elite/ grunt/ other covenant enemies are those who were not allied with the humans in halo 2 and halo 3. I think these are splinter groups who want to exact revenge. Also, I think we will see many other types of aliens and races and that these new enemies here are just the start of it all.
Can someone tell me wtf is going on. Promethians and forerunner revenge? I've played all of the games, am I mising something?
I have a theory on the fact if we'll see the new enemies before release or not. I think they'll try to make it so we'll have creepy reveal just like Halo CE did with the flood. If that happens, instantly my GOTY, but if they reveal them within now and release, not a single chance.
