Maybe you've heard about this little title, it's not really a big deal, it's called Halo 4 and it comes out in less than two weeks -- November 6. Luckily Microsoft and 343 Industries are already setting loose a number of pre-launch "launch" trailers, including a gameplay focused one put out just this morning. Check it out, but honestly this whole "space marine" fighting "aliens" shtick seems pretty lame to me, and is probably just a fad anyway.
HOLY -- did you see that giant floating orb and then the aliens who have two faces and the inner face is like a glowing, screaming skull? Then there was the green space marine fighting dudes with a big knife, shield and assault rifle, just kicking ass and taking names. Seriously, I'm really surprised this isn't more popular and you guys haven't heard about it. Seems pretty legit.
Halo 4 releases November 6, exclusively for the Xbox 360. The story picks up after the events of Halo 3, with Master Chief adrift in space -- until they come upon a forerunner planet. It looks like everything goes to hell from there. This will be the first full Halo title 343 Industries has developed, since Microsoft's contract with Bungie ended. Halo 4 will also be the first in a full trilogy, though the second and third titles are expected to be released on Microsoft's next generation Xbox.
