David Fincher And Tim Miller Working On Halo 4

 Halo 4 is now available now in the U.S. exclusively for the Xbox 360. The mega blockbuster, developed by 343 Industries, marks the return of Master Chief and introduces a new threat to the series while progressing the franchise's next-level multiplayer. 

Here's a snippet from our Halo 4 review.

"The new Promethean enemies – and their arsenal of killing tools – adds an improved layer of strategic depth that was lacking in the blunt-force approach taken with the Flood of previous games. The Forerunner world's guardians embrace a similar philosophy of sending an overwhelming force after the player, but there's more variation within their ranks, making for a much more interesting enemy to fight."

Additionally, we have a ton of other Halo 4 content that will help you decide whether or not you should pick up the game.

The pass is included in the Limited Edition of Halo 4, but will cost 2,000 MSP ($24.99) for everyone else.

Halo 4 Mantis Mech Tearing It Up On Valhalla

Microsoft is issuing permanent Xbox Live bans to those who illegally pirated Halo 4. The game reportedly leaked last week and has since become available online to users with modded Xbox 360 consoles. Microsoft isn't letting these players get away their activity though, and has sent an e-mail to those they suspect have pirated the game.

“This email is to notify you that your Xbox Live privileges have been permanently suspended due to illegitimate prerelease title play,” the email reads. “Because your conduct is in violation, the Xbox Live Enforcement Team has issued a permanent suspension. Your Xbox Live privileges will not be reinstated.”

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn will debut on October 5, 2012.


In this Halo 4 single player campaign gameplay preview, Executive Producer Kiki Wolfkill walks us through the story behind the first chapter of the game, called Dawn.

The footage in the YouTube video below reportedly shows off the Spartan Laser in Halo 4 as well as the game's sniper rifle..

If it's legit (and it sure looks legit), I'm not sure how YouTube user roverdover24 got his hands on it, or whether the finished game's Spartan Laser will look like this when Halo 4 comes out on November 6, but still, it's a pretty cool 10 seconds of video for the Halo faithful... so watch it quick, before it gets taken down.
