If the Flood are as annoying in Halo 4 as they have been previously, I'm throwing my teddy out of the pram!

The Meerkat4441d ago (Edited 4441d ago )

I'm hoping the Didact and his wife will be involved.
Its also interesting that the flood can choose who to infect and therefore take sides.

And its pretty certain the Guilty Spark will be there too.

Forerunners vs Flood(primordials) vs Human vs Crazy Guilty Spark

We're going to see quite a bit of enemies and/or allies. The Halo 4 Reveal revealed that the UNSC Infinity and Spartan IVs from Glasslands will play a role.

Primordium revealed a lot about the Flood, but also confirmed that some of the Precursors escaped the Forerunner led genocide of their civilization and fled the galaxy. Also, I'm lead to believe that some Forerunner's were also saved by the Didact's shield worlds.

I think that the plot of the Reclaimer Trilogy as a whole will focus around Master Chief encountering said Forerunner.

Somehow the Precursors outside of the galaxy will find out about the surviving FRs and return (with the Flood) to exact their revenge on the Forerunner, and by extension, Humanity, who inherited the Forerunner's mantle or at least are supposed to as Reclaimers.

So that's Covenant, Flood, Precursors, Forerunner, and maybe even Humans if that leak from last year is to be believed.

Also, the damaged clone/split of 343 Guilty Spark hijacking the ONI ship and claiming to know where the Librarian is could be a very interesting turn of events. Add to that the secret ending of Halo Wars and the probability that The Spirit of Fire may have also stumbled upon a shield world and well ...

... Exciting stuff :D

My biggest enemy in Reach were the Nobles AI. I swear they ran in my line of fire constantly on purpose, always ran ahead (unless they had a shotgun, ironically), and liked to spoil my stealthy progress (well, that one level at least).

I liked Halo 1-3, mostly being a lone wolf with only occasional help from those perfectly mortal generic characters.

I'm glad that the flood are returning.

I really hope 4 turns out better than ODST and Reach.

kaveti66164440d ago

My biggest gripe with Reach was knowing something the main characters didn't know for two hours, and then knowing something the characters didn't know for the rest of the damn game

1) Yes, you idiots, the Covenant have invaded.

2) You're going to die, why am I playing you?

Kalowest4440d ago

Both ODST and Reach were pretty good games, but yes they could've been better.

Ugh, I am in no way happy that the flood are making a return, if these presumptions end up ringing true that is. They were just not an interesting enemy to fight.

Kalowest4440d ago

It'll be cool if the new enemy was defected spartans.

Laxman4440d ago

While that would provide some good gameplay, there is no way that could happen for 2 reasons;

1) Spartans have trained their entire lives (in some cases) to be loyal soldiers. They wouldnt defect. Ever.

2) John is the last Spartan alive.

Drake1174440d ago

I think i heard somewhere that during the time of this game humanity has trained new spartans but i seriously doubt the enemy will be defected spartans. I think the mp might revolve around spartan training or something not sure tho.

NateCole4441d ago

Cross over to Mass Effect and kick the reapers ass i say

Kingdom Come4441d ago

In one of three colour variations...

tigertron4441d ago

I'm not sure if the Flood or the Covenant will return. Although I am sure the Arbiter will probably be in Halo 4.

The new enemies could be the Precursors. Remember the flash of a creature in the concept art trailer?

DaveX3604441d ago

Dr Robotnik. You heard it here first.

Ulf4441d ago

MC better bust out the jetpowered boots and spikey armor, if he thinks he can take Robotnik.

Grap4441d ago
