R U READY?
THE FIGHT WILL CONTINUE.....
We're more excited about Halo this time around for a couple of reasons. First, the newly assembled crew at 343 Industries seems to get what a Halo campaign is. It's about sandbox encounters -- not the paint-by-numbers themed levels that Reach included -- and it's about Master Chief and Cortana. The visuals are downright amazing. In fact, it's crazy to think that Halo 3 and Halo 4 are separated by five years and yet they run on the same system with the same underlying technology. Halo 4 looks that good.
The DMR is back and packs a mean punch at long range -- it almost feels like the Halo 1 pistol -- and the Battle Rifle also returns in burst-fire form. Fortunately the new Promethean weapons fit right in with the rest of the time-tested arsenal. And that doesn't even touch the Spartan Ops, episodic, co-op content!
Halo 4 launches on November 6th in the United States. Stay tuned as we continue to cover Chief's assault on the unknown, including our review. Until then, grab a spare clip and check your shields. And don't forget your helmet.
