E3 2012: Halo 4

Microsoft follows up their iconic Halo franchise with the next in the series, Halo 4. While already announced, details were scarce on the next game with the exception that 343 Industries would be helming the title and it would be taking a very different direction.

Microsoft’s press conference started with a live action trailer, citing humanity’s new ability to freely explore the stars. Something happens though, causing the ship to travel across space and crash land on the very same planet that Master Chief has been waiting on. Coincidence huh? Here’s is where the gameplay took over, and it looks much like the previous Halo titles, but with new enemies not of the Covenant variety. Instead, it seems some leftover Forerunner AI or technology is the culprit this time around. Expect more details to emerge as we move closer to the release.
