Halo 4 Boxart Reveal

Xbigy Games' Kamran Draeger writes:

"343 Studios has been sending out pieces of a 32 part puzzle surrounding their highly anticipated title Halo 4. After uncovering multiple pieces it quickly becomes clear that we are dealing with a guerrilla marketing ploy to unveil the boxart of the game." (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Good God this has to be one of the best boxart's this generation. So gooood.

And I thought the place holder boxart was awesome.
Admittedly I'm biased to the Chief but darn it if that isn't the most epic looking boxart that I have ever seen.

Very impressive. I genuinely look forward to a revamped, updated Halo experience.
Paradicia  +   840d ago
The detail is just immense. Major props to the artists over at 343i

I attached an image of what it could look like its final form

The main pic looks great, but that Xbox green kills pretty much every box art.

Love the box art but not sure how I feel about Halo 4 being amore gritty game.

As much as people complained about the bright colors, it is what makes Halo stand out from all of those 3 pallet brown, green and grey war games.

But at the same time I am more older now and want a darker halo. Hopefully this turns out like the Dark Knight Batman movie which came out of no where with its dark and gritty tone.

Reach was more "gritty" than then the past halo games.
Kurt Russell  +   839d ago
Fill my eyes with grit I say... A bit more atmosphere and Halo could be back on form.
spicelicka  +   839d ago
but haven't u seen the videos? The colours are way more vibrant than reach, a lot like halo 3 and the lighting is amazing. The story may be more gritty but the world itself is going to be lively.
AlienLion  +   839d ago
Aye, they cranked the awesomeness knob to infinity on this one.

Also, gotta love the hate. MSoft cant even show box art for a game without someone saying some dumb ish about "hype train".
JokesOnYou  +   839d ago
If the game itself has the same cranked up badass feeling that I get from this box art then its going to be one helluva ride, I'm still a huge Bungie fan but it looks like 343 are going to put their stamp on this amazing franchise.
gtxgamer2  +   840d ago
cool

HNNNNNNNNG

Nice art and everything but that armor STILL bothers me :/
aviator189  +   840d ago
What's wrong with the chief's armor? In my opinion, he's never looked better.
thrasherv3  +   839d ago
It just....doesn't look like chief to me. I but i guess I'm in the minority by the number of dislikes.

An HD wallpaper of this would be sweet.

I can't wait to see what the legendary/collectors edition will look like.
dexter11628  +   840d ago
the broken ship on the right side looks like a covie supercarrier
kamruk  +   840d ago
They are supposed to come back to Halo 4, just not as the main enemy
FarCryLover182  +   840d ago
Oh wow 0_0. This is amazing boxart.
StraightPath  +   840d ago
That is how you do box art ladies n gentlemen. Looks amazing.

ChunkyLover53  +   840d ago
343 is going all out. This has to be my favorite box art of the series. Very well done.
FarCryLover182  +   840d ago
343, take my money NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patriots_Pride  +   840d ago
Is it wrong that I just jizzed.
FarCryLover182  +   840d ago
What is wrong is that you even asked that question!! Of course it is not wrong!!!
MidnytRain  +   839d ago
No, because it's sterile and you like the taste.
mttrackmaster38  +   840d ago
Now watch how the ugly green xbox logo will mess up this perfect box art. I hope this has the unedited art on the other side of the paper.

I don't like Halo but this boxart it pretty sweet looking.
aviator189  +   840d ago
Oh my, that boxart is breath-taking. Probably one of the coolest I've ever seen.
Jesseas115  +   840d ago
I am so glad they didn't go for the Lone soldier with a torn up battlefield behind him. That is just too cliche.
Frankfurt  +   840d ago
Amazing.

First really awesome Halo cover. I liked the Halo Wars regular cover, and thought all otehrs were so-so, but this one takes it to a whole other level.

qwertyz  +   839d ago
Halo 4 is looking amazing will be the best 360 exclusive to date that's what happens with the type of talent MS hired when creating the studio.

343i and MAYBE Turn 10 are Microsoft ONLY solid studios. They need to buy or create more... or overhaul some of their existing studios.
PerpetualMathx10  +   839d ago
its unreal how good this cover is, developers need to let their artist at the boxart more often, damn!
ArtificiallyYours  +   839d ago
This really does a game justice. Sort of a Halo-2 pose going on.

I guess it was only a matter of time before someone made a stupid comment like this.
ArtificiallyYours  +   839d ago
Don't worry, I think Kingslayer failed to write fanfiction on how he wanted to milk Master Chief off like a calf.
spicelicka  +   839d ago

I really dig this art cover, I'm usually really Tacky of the little daft things like the art cover of a video-game, Halo 3 had an awesome cover aswell, Good to see this cover does not lack any 'awesome' aswell :D

still hoping against hope this is a multi launch on the nextbox as well, after gaming in 1080p,1200p, 1400p, 1600p for so long, going down to lowly, grubby 720p, 680p, 640p or whatever ancient resolution they will end up using is so hard on the eyes.
