The covenant has been defeated. And apparently, according to the short gameplay at E3, the enemy is not organic. I am guessing that the enemy might be a computer software gone bad like in I, Robot.
What do you guys think?
Um haver you not watched the e3 footage? They tell you who the main threat is. I dont want the covies to go away completely otherwise it takes away from what started Halo, no other game has covies, the new enemy in this bares a pretty close tie in with metroid kinda so I feel they kinda ripped from that but it's totally awesome so I can live with it. Not everything has to be a new original idea to be cool and entertaining.
I have seen the E3 footage. They tell that the weapon dropped by the enemy is of forerunner design. They say the enemy isn't organic. They don't say exactly what the enemy is, or what the threat is. Hence the question. If you have any insight on the nature of the threat, please do post.
The primary enemy in 4 is the Prometheans, but I don't know much about them. All I could find online are conflicting accounts that where they are either forerunner warrior-servants that have mutated to the highest level to fulfill their role, or that they are rogue constructs/AI. I'm going to guess its the first one though.VambrotiousThey are elite warriors of the Forerunners.
Though in the last novel, Glasslands, it should be noted that there are still Covenant distrustful of Humans and do not trust the Arbiter, believing that the last 20 years cannot be forgotten and forgiven, and that it is only a matter of time before they return to war (not as the Covenant, but as Sanghelli [elites]). Long story short - parts of the Covenent still exist, which is why we (obviously) still see them around, most likely racing the humans to Forerunner tech.
The large planet seen so far appears to be a Forerunner shield world, which explains why there are still Forerunenrs alive.
In a publication of GameInformer a few months back they go over that we will be fighting the forerunners (which im assuming is what that strange enemy was in the E3 footage. They talk about how the forerunners have survived and are living in artifically made planetiods. The planet has an outer metal shell that is designed to block the halo ring explosions. They also talk about how both the humans and the flood find the forefunners hiding place and it will probably end up being a similar situation to the Covenant V Humans V Flood scenario, except replace the Covenant with the forefunners (I still expect the covenant to be involved somehow though).
