The war with the Covenant has finally come to an end, as the Spartan super-soldier Master Chief and his companion Cortana drift through space in the dilapidated remains of the Forward Unto Dawn. Slowly they approach Requiem, an enigmatic artificial world thriving with numerous enemies and buried secrets.
With a set release date set for November 6, fans of the "Halo" series are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to rejoin their old friend Master Chief on his newest quest to protect humanity. This new addition to the popular series has several exciting features to keep you playing for hours in the unwelcoming new world.
Three Ways to Play
"Halo 4" offers you the opportunity to play in three separate modes, which all share underlying connections. The campaign mode places you four years after the end of the war with the Covenant. Playing as Master Chief, you are awakened by Cortana to learn that you are approaching the mysterious Requiem. Once on the artificial world, you learn that there is more to Requiem than what meets the eye, and you must dispose of your enemies to uncover the planet's lost secrets.
To hone your battling skills, you can train in the Spartan simulation arena when playing the War Games mode. Here you can study up on the latest battlefield techniques while wiping out your holographic enemies.
The newest way to play is by participating with the new cooperative Spartan Ops mode. You get to play as a Majestic Squad member, six months after the storyline ends. Every week you will receive a mini movie and five additional missions, all included with the purchase of "Halo 4." Through playing any of the game modes, you will stack up points that can be used to improve your Spartan Ops character. This mode will help entice you to keep playing long after the campaign is completed.
New Weapons That Pack a Punch
To properly eliminate your rivals, you need to use updated and technically advanced weapons and armor. Every gun from the automatic assault rifle to the portable rocket launcher has guaranteed compatibility with our Xbox 360 controller mods. Such exciting weapons include the Scattershot, which is ideal with close-range combat, and the Needler, which shoots guided, chemically-charged shards of crystalline at your opponents.
If you're more of a sniper, using a rapid fire controller can provide you with the Sniper Double Tap mode, which shoots two rounds into your target as opposed to one. "Halo 4" includes several other weapons that can be enhanced further with the assistance of an Xbox 360 modded controller, which makes disposal of enemies on any planet effortless.
