E3 2012: First Halo 4 Gameplay Revealed, And It Looks Incredible
Everyone was skeptical when Microsoft announced that they would be continuing the Halo franchise last year, handing over development duties to 343 Industries. It has been a long year for fans that have been looking forward to the first glimpses of the game, but damn that wait has been well worth it.
Halo 4 looked spectacular, being the very first thing Microsoft showed off during their conference. This seven minute long trailer combines a bit of live and cinematic action, but the real draw is the gameplay. The Covenant is back on the mysterious Forerunner planet that Master Chief has found himself one, as well as a new enemy. This new enemy type is completely synthetic, controlled by A.I and able to morph and change at any moment.
Gameplay itself looks more fast paced but true to the roots of the franchise. What is outstanding, however, are the visuals. Halo 4 looks absolutely stunning, and 343 have really taken care to make this one of the best looking Xbox 360 titles to date. Check out the gameplay trailer above to have your mind blown.
