Preview: Halo 4
By Abhinav Pattanayak aka ctrl_alt_del

I was at E3 last year when Microsoft closed their press conference with a teaser trailer of Halo 4. While I was not one of the many tearing up at the sight of Master Chief, I have been following any and all news Microsoft and the new custodians of the Halo franchise, 343 Industries might throw our way. Regrettably, the pickings have been next to non-existent. The recently concluded Xbox Spring Showcase intended to change that with a behind-closed-door showing of Halo 4. And guess what? Sameer and yours truly, along with a couple other guys, became the first people outside 343 Industries and Microsoft to have a look at the first game from the new Halo trilogy.

That probably sums up the high-point of the entire presentation. Executive producer Kiki Wolfkill and franchise development director Frank O’Connor revealed very little about the game itself. We had to satisfy ourselves with a video that talked about taking Master Chief’s story as he goes against a completely new threat in a campaign that picks up right where Halo 4 left off


What a long, strange trip it's been.

The game engine is a variant of the one used in Halo Reach engine, but with a heavy makeover in terms of character models, animation and lighting.

So you guys saw a video only, right? did it look running on PC and not on 360, or on better hardware than 360?

It was running on a 360. It wasn't just a video. They loaded up the maps on a debug 360 and did a fly through, so we could see the in-engine lighting and character models. Animations we could only tell from the gameplay video which they showed later. I dont think that video/trailer has been released. Visually it was good, but not exactly cutting edge even for this gen.

I think frank o'connor said tht the bits of gameplay shown in the vidoc was alpha footage..

They showed you the warhouse and wraparound maps right? The same ones from the vidoc?
