E3 2012: Halo 4 Gameplay and Trailer

Finally, the long awaited Halo 4 has some fresh game play footage, courtesy of E3. A live-action trailer was also revealed which, in the spirit of Halo, is all kinds of awesome.


So, in Halo 4 we get our first look at the new enemies, currently known as Prometheans. The enemies shown were suggested to be “some kind of defense AI, not Covenant”. Not much else is told, but they do seem to have forerunner weaponry; which is enough to excite any Halo fanboy (if you don’t know the lore or back-story, the forerunner’s are a big deal). They also look rather unique for the Halo franchise, although the design constantly reminds me of Tron.

Likewise the covenant are back (because one-shotting grunts is always fun) with the Elites and all the flying vehicles. All in all, this is shaping up to be one interesting game. There wasn’t any multiplayer on show, but the single player campaign is looking great.

What do you think? How is it looking as a franchise no longer under Bungie’s supervision?
