This Halo 4 behind-the-scenes documentary behind-the-scenes takes a look at the creative process behind the Prometheans.
I have complete faith that 343 Studios (has done and) will do a great job with the Halo franchise! Simply from the fact that most of the studio's designers were fans of the series BEFORE they ever worked on a title. It's a team of designers, artists, and engineers that know from first hand experience what the community (and they themselves would) want in a new Halo game! Considering that the Halo franchise has been and continues to be Microsofts leading franchise I'm certain that they will do everything in their power (which they have TON$ of) to make sure that this game everything the community hopes it to be. Microsoft and 343 Studios know that if this game were to fail (as much as Reach) everyone would lose faith in 343 Studios and there would be no future for the Halo franchise!
I wonder if something is different or even wrong with the prometheans.. I always saw the forerunner's as stoic and wise, not vicious and aggressive. How come they disintegrate when they die? Are they just consciousness in an advanced suit? Too many questions
I am so stoked for this game ! I just don't like a few things ..but yet again I wont totally harp on it since I didnt play it yet. 1. The Prometheans look (as said below) cyborg. Even though this video states they are NOT robots.. did they ever hear looks can be deceiving ? Anyway, I also don't like ( as mentioned below) how the enemy disappears. I mean..maybe it will be cool once I start to play ,but I'm more about the corpses on the battlefield rather than piles of dust everywhere...? I honestly think/wished 343 would have invested in a more grim enemy..something that looks like it will kill you just with a glare..something without any restraint. Give Chief an enemy that beats the living shit out of him. Fucks humanity up worse than covies did. I think Master Chief and Halo is one of the best stories out there..so give him a good fight. With that said, the enemy does look promising and intriguing...lets just hope that they kick ass.
@IrishSweenz1790Master Chief gets his ass handed to him by one of the Forerunners in one of the chapters. You'll see how helpless he is against him.
@lTimmayyl halo 2 brought lots of trippy-ness to halo, then the series kinda let that go. The guns are trippy. Yay!
Lets all pray this is gonna be good :)
Prometheans look cool, but also kinda robotic if u ask me.
And its kinda lame that they totally disintegrate when they are killed. I like seeing the battlefield littered with dead bodies after a long and hard fight :P
Will buy on first day anyway.
I hope we get to fight Covenant as well (brutes/elites/grunts) with their banshees and ghosts. Also loved the flood.
Cant wait to ride a tank together with my buddy and some marines!
i can't wit, this is gonna be redonkulous i hope you can use the melee weapon of the knights like you can use the energy sword, aksdjfiajsfdo i can't waitttttttt
There is change but it's for the better. No one wants the same human vs covenant in every Halo game. The Prometheans introduced in Halo 4 bring more story to the Forerunners that was already introduced since Halo 1. Not sure what drastic changes you're seeing except the new race and their weapons introduced here.
Looks great, but was I the only one who found the video a bit glitchy? I looked for one that wasn't on other sites but the ones I could access were glitchy at the same points in the same ways. I'm just curious.
S@#t, I really wish I hadn't watched this. I'd been kind of ignoring Halo 4, not really that interested, now this comes along and blows my apathy out of the water. Now where did I put my credit card?
I sense some inspiration came from the Metroid Prime series with some of the design, but it I like it. Even if it didn't, it still looks like it'll be exciting to take on the Prometheans.
Its funny to note that how we spend trillions to explore other species in the universe and then spend some more to fight them. Send our men to war and make something much of world war until we realize we need some peace at last. And on these frailties of human we make out a great game.
Looks beastly, cannot wait.. The composer is no longer Martin O Donell either, can't wait to see what that's like..
Hard to believe there's a threat out there greater than the flood. Excuse my ignorance, i just haven't been? reading the lore since after Reach :P
Holy hell, it's a good thing Halo 4 doesn't have Flood anymore. they just annoy me in Combat. but the Prometheans and the Forerunners are something I can test my skills with.
@wavelength121 Haters gonna hate. Go play your precious resistance 3 lol
@wavelength121 Someone's slow.
@wavelength121 Are you being sarcastic? Because Bungie is not developing this. 343 Industries is, and most of them were from Bungie.... 343 said that they were all really into Halo
@wavelength121 How does that even make sense?
Looks awesome, I'm just glad to finally be done with the flood....bring on the Prometheans, their tech looks cool and the enemy designs are interesting.....
@LittleChatelain Perhaps it is the map-remake they've been talking about. But they were fighting covenant and there's no firefight in Halo 4. If it was a map remake it would surely be in multiplayer.
the Forerunners design look like walking cockroaches. kinda expecting something more in the line extreme strength than a pest.
For me, this almost makes up for Microsoft not coming out with any new IP's lately for the 360... ALMOST >_>
All of this forerunner tech and disintegration just reminds me of Metroid Prime. Or am I just crazy?
