PAX 2011: New Halo 4 Details Revealed


As long as there are aliens to shoot with Needlers, the Halo franchise will never die. A new Halo trilogy is being developed by 343 Industries, and they have dubbed it the “Reclaimer Trilogy.”

First of all, the new trilogy will be a far more personal take on Halo. It will delve into Master Chief’s character and personal motivations. It will also stress exploration while showing new varieties of ruined alien technology. It actually sounds like it will be taking a few cues from Metroid, in fact.

Of course, the game will have an expansive multiplayer suite. Both co-op and competitive multiplayer are in the works, but there aren’t many details beyond that.

The Forge feature is rumored to be coming back, as well as loadouts, many old game modes, and Cortana. However, there is one unfortunate piece of bad news. Even though rumors said that a Halo 4 beta would be included in the new Halo: Combat Evolved HD Remake, it turns out that this is not true. So you will just have to wait patiently to see what Halo 4 has to bring.

Finally, the most important thing of this new sci-fi trilogy that is looking to expand on one of our favorite fictional universes? No Jar Jar Binks.
