IGN - Master Chief is Changing For Halo 4

IGN say: 343's Frank O'Connor has explained why Master Chief looks a little different in the reveal trailer for Halo 4, hinting that his personality is going to change as well.

In an E3 interview with Official Xbox Magazine, O'Connor, formerly of Bungie and the Halo series' Franchise Director, had this to say: "There's some story behind his new look... There are specific reasons why he looks the way he does and why some of his behaviours have changed. We'll see in good time."

WOW. Either those authors are real idiots, Or they have nothing to write about and want some hits.
This is a teaser trailer, CGI and not made by 343i.

This mean it would not represent the final game. IDIOTs

But if you'd read the blurb you'd know that the design changes are intentional and will have some bearing on the game.

they gonna throw some dirt on his face and call him "fresh" and "exciting" too?

Max_Dissatisfaction4485d ago

Do you want them to? I mean is that the kinda thing that turns you on, dirt in the face? Go on, tell us, you're amongst friends.

I would be fun if they gave him a little tail like in Shallow Hal ;-)

Master Chief has been through a lot, he's died a few times.

EazyC4485d ago

He's become a cocaine addict since the events of Halo 3 to deal with his PTSD.

Or so I heard.

Ravens204485d ago

He wears green spandex and carrys a knife that plays music now

Holy shit, I laughed when I saw the pic.

Why not make the protagonist a different person altogether?

Tony P4484d ago (Edited 4484d ago )

I see disagrees, but I really don't see what is so objectionable about playing another protagonist in a Halo game.

It's allegedly meant to be a franchise, so why experience the main games from the viewpoint of one guy all the time?

Eamon4484d ago

Well the last 2 Halo games were experienced in someone other than MC view.

IHateYouFanboys4484d ago


you seem to be forgetting ODST and Reach. you didnt play as Master Chief in either of those.

Halo 4 is the continuation of Master Chiefs story - of course youre going to play as Master Chief! you wouldnt make you play as Alfred instead of Batman in Batman Arkham City just for something different, would you?

Tony P4484d ago

True, but I said main games. That was my trying to say Halo's in the main storyline (Halos 1-3). Not prequels and side-stories.

I don't know why people are responding as if I suggested something horrible, like there can never be a good Halo that:

1) continues the storyline proper
2) features a different protagonist

And personally, I think that's a lot better than arbitrarily changing the face of the series just to mix it up.

Because Master Chief fanboys are some of the most rabid and incoherent you'll ever happen across. They would riot if the chief wasn't in the new Halo title.
