Microsoft opened up their E3 2012 conference with some epically incredible footage from Halo 4. The footage is an awesome mix of live-action, cinematic, and gamplay greatness. The game looks amazing, and I think it will live up to our expectations. I'm a huge fan of Halo, and I'm balls-out excited for this game! I don't even know what that expression "balls-out" even means, but I just used it.
Here's the Synopsis:
Set in the aftermath of Halo 3, Master Chief returns to confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Halo 4 marks the start of a new trilogy that begins with its release in 2012.
The story of Halo 4 will be focus more on mystery, exploration and discovery. Developers have described the game as being grand in scope and scale, and suggested that the game will reveal how humanity and the UNSC have adapted to the galaxy after the end of their war with the Covenant, particularly how they have co-opted Forerunner technology.
Check out the new footage of the game below and let us know if it does the job of getting you excited! I'll replace this with a higher resolution video as soon as one becomes available.
