New Halo 4 ViDoc Shows That 343 Industries May Make The Best Halo Game In History

March 6, 2012, By Christian Davis

Once Halo: Reach was completed, Bungie had decided to move onto new projects and intellectual properties. Though we were sad to hear about their departure, we found out during Microsoft’s Press Conference that 343 Industries was developing a brand new Halo trilogy (Halo 4 through 6). 343 has handled Halo in the past with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition which was a re-release of the classic Halo: Combat Evolved. It was great to see the classic re-done in Halo: Reach’s engine and we definitely are looking forward to what 343 does with a new trilogy all on their own.

The video documentary shows some of their design process that’s going into the creation of Halo 4. Of course, Master Chief is still the protagonist of the story but we’re going to learn more about him in the upcoming installment. The development team is set on diving into the Chief’s history through gameplay rather than other forms of media like we see today.

Returning along side our favorite super solider is the signature Halo weapon–the Battle Rifle. It’s not often that we see a weapon in a game that has a sort of cult following and fans of the franchise will love to see the trusty burst fire rifle make a return to the series.

343 isn’t slouching on the multiplayer as either. They’re building the maps from the ground up with competition in mind. Two brand new maps are showcased ,and from what we can tell, the gameplay is more fast paced than Halo: Reach and may be closer to the gameplay style of Halo 2 which was the most addictive of the series.

The Halo franchise is not only in good hands, it’s in great hands. 343 will definitely have the game still feel like what we know and love while adding their own flair into the mix. That’s something we’re not opposed to at all.

Halo 4 is set to release in 2012. Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
