Microsoft starts off their E3 coverage with, what else, Halo 4. The live action trailer boots up followed by actual visuals and gameplay. The game runs smooth and beautifully, which is fantastic since Halo 4 is five months away. As of right now, the game is on track for its November 6th release date.
The video shows that the Forerunners are back, who lived roughly 100,000 before Halo: Combat Evolved. Picking up weapons shows off a fancy Transformers-like animation, and there’s lots and lots of action going on.
A.I.’s start to break down after six years and Cortana is in her seventh. The video clearly shows a newly revamped Cortana as worried and extremely pissed off. Jen Taylor returns to voice Cortana, perhaps for the final time. During the presentation, Cortana is once again guiding Master Chief during actual gameplay, assisting him when needed and providing hints along the way.
The video is enough to make any fan scream and we should be getting more Halo 4 goodness as E3 continues. Stick around to The Game Fanatics for more Halo 4 information and impressions, as well as more coverage on E3!
