E3 2012: HALO 4 Serves Up Live-Action Trailer And First Gameplay

By David Wharton | 9 years ago

There was no question that HALO 4 was going to have a major presence at this year’s E3, but nobody was sure exactly what they’d have to show off. It has a lot to prove, after all, since HALO 4 is both the beginning of a new trilogy of games (dubbed the “Reclaimer Trilogy”) and the first of the franchise being developed by 343 Industries, after original developers Bungie left the series. From the earlier trailers, we knew Master Chief was still the protagonist, his A.I. buddy Cortana was still along for the ride, and that the storyline would involve a Forerunner planet. Well, HALO 4 did not disappoint yesterday, unveiling a new live-action segment that shifts seamlessly into actual gameplay. Check it out, courtesy of GameTrailers.com:


HALO 4 is set to release November 6th on the Xbox 360.
