Master chief will return in Halo 4 which is a new game in the already colossal Halo universe. Almost five years after the events in Halo 3, Halo 4 takes the game in a new direction.
Halo 4 takes place in a completely new and unknown world called Requiem. Unlike the other Halo's in the series which took place on one of the Halo's themselves. The planet was a shield planet, that was built by the forerunners as a bomb shelter for when the Halo arrays were to go off.
The new enemies in Halo 4 is Prometheans along with the legendary Covenant. The Prometheans were ancient protectors with the task of keeping Requiem safe. They were once the greatest force in the universe until they came up against The Flood. In order to destroy The Flood, they created the Halo rings.
Halo 4 will also be bringing back a brand new multiplayer system. The system will have the same 1-50 level up experience, but there will be new game types and characters. You will also be able to create your own character for the online. For the online they will also be introducing several new maps to play on, such as adrift, Haven and longbow, as well as several others. There also going to be bringing the Forge mode back to Halo 4. The Forge was first seen in Halo Reach, however there was only one world you could play on. In Halo 4 you will have the choice of three different worlds.
The release date for Halo 4 is November 6th , 2012. the price tag on this game is $59.99 which is a lot of money for a game but also lots of fun to play. Publisher is Microsoft Game Studios and Developer is 343 Industries. Not yet rated but more than likely it will be like the otherHalo games and be rated M for mature.
