Legendary Spartan hero Master Chief returns in one of 2012's most hotly anticipated releases, Halo 4, developed exclusively for the Xbox 360 by 343 Industries.
The latest instalment in the definitive Xbox sci-fi saga, Halo 4 takes place almost 5 years after the events of Halo 3, following Master Chief and his trusty AI companion Cortana as they boldly venture into a mysterious new world and discover an overpowering ancient evil that threatens to destroy humanity. With the fate of the entire universe hanging by a thread, Master Chief must confront his destiny as mankind's greatest hero by embarking on his most epic adventure yet.
Taking the reins from franchise forebears Bungie, 343 Industries will expand upon the success they found with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary to bring their own unique vision to the Halo universe, creating a game that reaches beyond the series' traditional FPS roots to offer a more diverse gameplay experience that incorporates elements of exploration and discovery.
The first in a trilogy of new games, Halo 4 promises not only a deep campaign mode with a rich story, but will also introduce a groundbreaking new multiplayer mode - Halo Infinity Multiplayer - that will redefine the way people think about storytelling and multiplayer experiences.
Halo Infinity is based around the UNSC Infinity, the largest ship in the fleet and the place where you'll build your very own Spartan IV soldier. As you enhance and progress the experience, skills and appearance of your Spartan through the many competitive and co-op multiplayer missions, Halo Infinity connects multiplayer to the bigger Halo universe like never before.
War Games continues the traditional, visceral competitive multiplayer battles Halo is known for. Taking place on the deck of the UNSC Infinity, War Games introduces a wealth of new game modes and strategies, which all will help further your Spartan IV career.
Specializations are the newest addition to your multiplayer career, giving you the chance to enhance and personalise your soldier with a particular set of skills. You can choose your Specialization once you hit Level 50, and have the option to change it each time you level up.
