Master Chief does his best impersonation of “Journey”
343 Industries unveiled the latest Halo game for the Xbox ONE, at 60fps, yet they failed to say when and where this takes place. All we know is he’s back, maybe hiding from the UNSC. Maybe seeking out “The Composer” to bring back Cortana.
The journey continues in 2014, most likely in November.

Xbox One is Ready to Pounce on your Pocketbook
Microsoft announced Xbox One’s new Halo game, but bizarrely, it doesn’t say anything about being Halo 5, just “Halo.” What does that mean? Who knows. Apparently it involves a desert and a big, dusty robot spaceship thingy.
The bad news, though, is that immediately following the announcement, they unveiled the Xbox One’s price: $499 in the US, 429 Pounds in the UK, 499 Euros in…Europe other than the UK, I guess. I guess that cinches it: Xbox One can look forward to poor sales to compliment its poor critical reception.
E3 2012 Offers Up Halo 4 Deets
Come election-day, the Master Chief , like a boss, will come to your house and sit you down. Then he’ll get all comfy, pop Halo 4 in your disc tray, living there longer then say Black Ops 2.
Halo 4 will include two new takes on old classics: Slayer and Firefight will become War Games and Spartan Ops, respectively. The latter will tell the story, episodically, of the UNSC Infinity, its crew and a new team of Spartans, Majestic Squad. Infinity will also serve as the hub for War Games, offering character progression and customization to suit your play style. Intriguingly, it will also offer a scoring system which separates both individual and team performance, ensuring that appropriate rep is given where it’s due. Hit the jump to see the gameplay videos of both game types.
Halo 4 Stuff Hints At A Not-So-Distant Future
With E3 just around the corner, folks tongues are salivating over any hint about what’s to come. Sometimes that tongue belongs to someone on the inside and slips.
What could very well be odd viral marketing for Halo 4, video footage of its multiplayer footage has surfaced. Forums and blogs across the interwebs debate its legitimacy. The plot thickened when Kotaku question Microsoft, which replied with; “We are conducting an internal beta test of Halo 4 which is a standard development practice for most video games. We have no plans for a public multiplayer beta for Halo 4.”
Take a look after the jump.
November can’t come soon enough, and the folks over at 343 Industries know it. They’ve just released a new behind the scenes video. It gives a quick glimpse, with no hints or real teasers of whats to come. Just a few facts from the video; the almighty battle riffle is back, as is a pistol, it appears were keeping armor abilities like the jet pack and sprint, there will be more insight on who Master Chief is and the new Spartan IVs and why they fight.
But why take my word for it?
The late night ginger that is Conan O’Brien and his buddy Andy Richter are up to their old antics, in what might be their biggest impact on their careers as they entertain the audience with news of the forthcoming Halo 4.
Besides the announcement of Halo 4′s release date, November 6, the two flaunted their vocals in their trademark personas as space marines, hopefully they make the cut.
