Halo 4
Halo 4 Campaign Screens Look Dark and Dramatic
Written By
View author's profile

A whole bunch of Halo 4 campaign screenshots have surfaced today, showing the Master Chief rocking some Covenant hardware as well as his trusty assault rifle. There's also a look at some of the antagonist Covenant forces getting all up in the Chief's grill and Cortana, looking naked and blue.

There's 20 screenshots in all (count 'em), and you can view every last one in the gallery. They look incredible of course, indicating that 343 Industries is still most definitely on the right track.

Check out a handful of the new shots below, then armour up for Halo 4 on November 6th, 2012.

No idea what it is, but I keep getting less and less interested in this. Right now it's pretty much only nostalgia for the old Halo's that's keeping me mildy interested at all.

The last one looks borderlands-like cell shading... not really halo.

I'm really digging the new aesthetics of the Covenant. The Elites look more rugged and the Jackals appear to be more terrifying in a sense. I miss Cortana's design from Halo 2 however. I can't wait 'til November 6th!

Voluptuous breasts? Plump knockers, nice melons? Tits maybe? big BOOOBIES? Cant please everyone. I was briefly entertained, thanks for not writing the piece like #6 would have written it. :D

Can't wait to see how the 343 treatment is working on the halo universe, I really want to play halo but I can't stand Reach, at all. Maybe they can make a classic? I am both doubtful and hopeful.

By the way, when are we going to get the broken games fixed here on x360a??? Like cod:waw and battlefield 3 for example? They coding is not proper. And when is there going to be a windows 8 section? is there going to be? There should be. I have a few ideas on how to better implement some of the site features, just ask me, no charge.... :D

One thing I noticed is that there seems to be a new type of grenade. In the picture with the Elite, the Chief's HUD shows frag grenades, plasma grenades, and a third type of grenade that doesn't look like any previous kind in the series.

Also, Jackals got a big time makeover. Now they look even uglier than the Elites. Speaking of which, I think the main reason people are finding them strange is the missing armor in some areas, like the forearms and face.

But because you notice something that is clearly there doesn't make you fancy whatever it is you may be observing. Like it or not, in the image above you can clearly see Cortana has more focus on her boobs than she does in the previous games. Simply observing this does not mean you fancy the character.

Cool images. Can't wait to see the change of graphics.

Though it not the only thing I want to see about Halo 4. I been trying to find out about the co-op campaign, not Spartan Ops, I was wondering who would players 2-4 be if Player 1 is Master Chief? Are they going to do what Bungie did using multi-Chiefs or Master Chief and P2-4's Spartans?

Anyone else notice the jackal's leg? It seems like from the knee down it's metallic. What's up with that? If it's a prosthetic leg, and he's back out there fighting, I have a newfound respect for jackals!

@24 It's a forerunner grenade. It works kinda like the power drain gadget from H3. I just imagine Cortana being like a typical women and being like, "My binary is looking a little saggy,let me re-write my programming." which is wierd beause that was supposed to be Dr. Halsley?

@30 Most likely DoppleChiefs.

OT: I say this every HALO news article-related thread; SIMPLY CANNOT WAIT!!!

@7 OK I really need some clarification. I always thought prometheans are forerunners or are they two different things? Is it like how the covenant has brutes, grunts, elites and forerunners have prometheans and builders? Sorry, I don't really understand... Lol.

Its a pure dam shame that this game is being held back by a 7 year old Technology, Just imagine what it might be like if it was designed to work on the "Xbox 720" (Which is still is Unconfirmed in naming and Existance)

Looking forward to this for the Campaign more than anything :D

@12 Released screenshots are almost always taken from PC developer builds of the game and then further enhanced with photo editing software.

This has been a fact of life for many years. Don't sweat it though many guys just like you are a little bit out of the loop and jump the gun when answering quesions.

@38 No you got it right. Prometheans are Forerunner. But like you also said we have the Builders, etc.

#2 just has things a little mixxed up. Although it can be said the Promethean Knight constructs aren't really Promethean Warriors but something else. We really have to wait and see how everything unfolds in Halo 4 and even more so in the book Silentum. I'm banking on the Promethean Knights being composed by the Composer from fallen/infected Promethean Warriors.

I'm really really diggin' the aesthetic look of everything. Besides all that "I can't wait to play this game..." frenzy -which I do feel-, I also want to know the canon behind the different types of grunts (storm grunts, imperial grunts...), if there is one.

Did you read the comments? I haven't seen one that's "cleverly constructed" in here yet that is about hating Halo. They are mostly blanket statements and opinions that in no way reflect actual facts. Or do you count "Halo sucks, CoD all the way!" as a "cleverly constructed" comment?
