New screenshots of the Halo 4 campaign were released Friday showing new areas of the games plus more of the Prometheans and Covenant.
Halo 4 primarily takes place on the mysterious Shield World named Requiem. Adrift in space in half of the Forward Unto Dawn, Cortana has spent the last five years watching over Master Chief in a cryotube while sending out distress calls. What she finds instead is a fanatical splinter faction of the Covenant and the mysterious Requiem. This is when players spring into action as Master Chief.
The screenshots really showoff the graphical refresh that 343 Industries has given the game engine for Halo 4. While previous games of the current generation ran at “sub-HD” levels, the latest in the series will not only run at 720p but all the character models received substantial upgrades and re-work.
Halo 4 is headed out for the Xbox 360 on November 6.
