Master Chief is back and at E3 2012 we got a taste of the gameplay expected in the latest installment of the saga, Halo 4.
The Xbox 360 conference begain with Halo 4. The trailer started with brain waves firing as Chief awakens and comes out of, what appears to be, stasis. The trailer continues on, dropping Chief on a jungle planet which adds a bit of a different look from previous Halos.
The jungle was colorful and all aspects of the game were vibrant. The gameplay was smooth with a lot of extraneous sound activity ranging from background noise to battle sounds to accompanying voices from artificial intelligence (AI).
Some things we noticed include new weapons, the aforementioned jungle environment in vibrant colors and a possible AI construct corruption storyline. Though this is only a brief glimpse into what Halo 4 looks like, it does appear to be polished. Locking targets was accurate and with several vision modes, Chief should have no trouble detecting danger.
The tagline for Halo 4 appears to be ‘An Ancient Evil Awakens’. Although, technologically advanced ancient evil based on what was shown. Overall, the Halo 4 presentation was well met and it appears as though it could continue the franchise’s great success.
Expected release date: Holiday 2012 (early reports place the release in December)
- New weapons.
- Jungle environment.
- AI construct corruption unfolding.
