Well if you haven’t heard the news yet, Halo 4 is coming and it’s being released a lot sooner than you’d think. I would have thought that it possibly could have been a release title on the next Xbox console, but I guess not. It is currently scheduled to be released toward the end of this year. I usually wouldn’t be very excited for a Halo game anymore, because I’ve been getting bored of them, but I’m actually quite intrigued by this one. I just watched a video that 343 Industries made (The new company behind Halo, since Bungie isn’t working on it anymore), and they described the difference between this Halo and the older ones. The one factor that really caught my attention was the fact that they are focusing more on Master Chief as a character, rather than just saving the world. They are going into his back story , because the only sources that have done this as of right now are the novels and comics based on the franchise. I have personally read many of the Halo novels, and Master Chief’s story is actually quite fantastic. So if you’re interested at all about Halo, I would watch the news feed of any and all gaming sources you may follow. I’m sure a lot of news will be released in the near future (with the most probably being announced during E3 in the summer). OXM has also interviewed Frank O’Connor of 343 Industries about Halo 4’s multiplayer, and I highly recommend you check it out. Well that’s all I have right now. If anyone else has an opinion on the latest Halo news, feel free to comment below!
Also, if you’re not interested in Halo, Mass Effect 3 is also coming out tomorrow! As I’ve stated before, I highly recommend that everyone check it out, because it really is a fantastic series.
