Halo 4 new screenshots

Halo 4 new screenshots

Among the two 360 exclusives of this end of year, Halo 4 is probably the most anticipated. First, because it announces the return of Master Chief, secondly, because it's the first original Halo game for 343 Industries. Will they manage to make us forget about Bungie? That's a question we'll be able to answer soon, when the game is released on November 6.
Update: More screens added.

Looks pretty

Very nice!

All I care for is the campaign, and a offline horde mode type if they have it (Halo reach had it).

Is it just me or does the out door lighting look to contrasty?

For example the 3rd & 2nd to last images

Looks alright I guess.

Finally a halo game that looks as good as a halo game should. I just wish it hadn't taken this long for MS to spend some money on making an engine that takes advantage of the hardware.

Stunning graphics but are they bullshots?

In the "super-sampled" sense? probably, but most screenshots are these days.

it's the same engine though. It was more Bungie's "fault". Still, I love how this is looking.

Some of these shots really show the difference between the Campain and the MP/co-op...

Pretty incredible what they've managed to do with hardware from 2005.
Commented on 2012-09-26 23:46:40
Stunning stuff!
Commented on 2012-09-26 23:49:13
nowhere near as stunning as Halo 3. They completely missed out on the ambience effects, all that good stuff that takes the experience to life. They're not as good with shaders as bungie was but that figures.

Yeah it's Bungie's engine. It's probably easy to focus on visuals primarily when someone else has built an entire game for you already.


Let's hope OP doesn't stumble in here. He's not going to make it out alive

Noway on this earth this will look like this lmao!

That picture from reach is not from the game, it's some work in progress shot using the assets from the VGA 2009 trailer. Anyways, i can sort of see what you mean with the ambience in halo3. Certain areas in H3 had a good feeling of depth and air. I think it's hard to judge that from the pictures of Halo 4 here, mostly because of the areas. There has been shown videos/shots of other environments in Halo 4 that's got a different (maybe less outlined/cartoony) look, (like this: http://loudmouthedgamers.com/blog/wp-content/uploa...) which i really like the look of.

I guess we'll have to wait another 5-6 weeks before we find out how it really looks/feels.

Can a console from 2005 really give out those type of screenshots in this day and age? Hell i've had 3 Nvidia cards and other upgrades to my PC since then.....

No Firefight in Halo 4. 343i confirmed that months ago ^^

The replacement is called "Spartan Ops" and its basically a second campaign (linear missions) than fighting waves of enemies in a single environment/map.

It will and it does. Have you seen the gameplay footage from campaign?

Tbh, it looks really good and nice, the lighting is awesome and all, but if you take a closer look to the more open environments, you will see a lack of actual details like plants. Basically every screenhost they have shown so far only had tons of rocks and canyon-like environments. Just look at the screens above ^^


The jungle is the only really impressive level IMO. But it seems it's also very small and linear design (like Halo 3s first mission which was a jungle as well). To save performance I guess. I wish the bigger open areas in Halo 4 would look like that too or could at least offer some variety or slightly more details.
