The Forerunners are the ancient, highly advanced species that created the Halos. For the first time, players are about to come face-to-face with them, in Halo 4.
The Games Developers Conference is getting started today in San Francisco, so we’re in store for a big marketing blitz of new game announcements and insider looks at upcoming titles. Microsoft released a new “first look” video today for Halo 4, which shows off the game in action for the first time ever.
The original Halo was a transformative moment in console gaming. It’s singlehandedly responsible for launching the Xbox as a platform, as well as proving the viability of Xbox Live. Bungie’s magnum opus has gotten a major facelift just in time for its tenth anniversary, and it’s still just as fun as you remember.
Despite the high-res textures, character models with way more polygons, and all kinds of other upgraded technology on display in this trailer, there’s still something decidedly retro about the look and feel of Halo: Anniversary.
Microsoft’s 343 Industries — its new division devoted to making new Halo games — has spilled some early details about Halo 4… and beyond.
