Halo 4 live action launch trailer released

Microsoft has released the live action launch trailer for Halo 4, seen above, on the company's YouTube page for its Xbox brand.

The trailer was directed by Tim Miller, who did special effects on "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and will direct the upcoming "Deadpool" film adaptation of the Marvel comic. David Fincher, director of films such as "Fight Club" and "The Social Network," produced the trailer. 

During the trailer, flashbacks to John-117's days in the SPARTAN-II program are mixed with action inspired by the upcoming game, which will be released in most territories on Nov. 6.

Last week, Halo 4 leaked on the Internet well in advance of its release. In response to the leak, Microsoft has proceeded to permanently ban gamers who attempt to play Halo 4 online from the company's Xbox Live service.

looks awesome, however so did the halo odst trailer

It was good in it's own way, it wasn't near the quality of the first three games or Reach. It's in the title, Halo 3: ODST it was more of an expansion pack than a full game which we got in Halo Reach.

One thing I love about Halo is the SP campaign. It was really good in Halo 3 and even better in Halo: Reach. I look forward to it in Halo 4. For once, Master Chief is going up against new enemies and possibly even a new adversary.

Halo Anniversary got me pumped up for a new campaign. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint does to make an old game feel new.

I had a blast with that game too. Good times.

Had it pre-ordered from Amazon since day one, really can't wait to get it. I've got a flashed Xbox but I'm going to wait for the official release, it's seemed like an eternity though

I don`t purchase any where near as many games as i used to, this one really looks like it could be a cracker so i think it`s a definate for the in box
After Halo 3, it`s about time.

OMG I soo wish they made these for PC

We don't need any more crappy ports. PC's could do graphics close to this video right now if it wasn't for all the console ports holding the hardware back. Games designed for 7 year old hardware and DX9.

A few PC's could do graphics like that, the way PC gamers moan on and on about Consoles holding games you'd think every PC in the world has 10x the power of consoles. The last time a game maxed out the graphics so that only PC's could run it, it was Crysis and they lost a shed-loud of cash. So much that they basically had no choice but to release the second game on Consoles.

On Paper my PC destroys an Xbox 360 but it can barely run games at the same quality as a PS3 or Xbox. The fact is the reason PC games are often only a little better than console ports is because Games companies need to cater to the majority of PC's out there.

There is certainly something to be said for developing on the same hardware for 7 years. I mean, just compare current gen launch games with recent games...

They did, its called Forward unto Dawn. Although I figure you mean a movie that will hit theatres.

Actually, that's a series, it's on YouTube and Halo Waypoint. The first 2 episodes are out now.
