North American eSports organisation Major League Gaming has announced Halo 4 as part of its Fall Championship lineup. The tournament will take place just days before the game is officially released, giving competitors the opportunity to play the game before it goes on sale.
Additional details, such as prize money, format, bracket size, and schedule, have yet to be confirmed. The MLG Fall Championship will be taking place in Dallas, Texas, on November 2-4 this year.
In an update on the official Xbox website, Microsoft has advised that, for an "optimal experience," players should install the entire game to their console's hard drive, which will require at least 8GB of free space.
Halo 4 is due out on November 6 for the Xbox 360. It is a direct sequel to 2007's Halo 3 and has players taking on the role of supersoldier Master Chief. For more on the project, check out GameSpot's latest preview.
