Halo 4: Return of the Forerunners trailer

Fans of the Halo franchise will be pleased to know that the team behind Halo 4 have been working hard to bring us more than just new weapons, maps, and enemies — but a rich new chapter to the Halo story as well. Details on the story are still somewhat vague despite several leaks, but based on the footage in this video combined with what we already know, it’s clear that the story will delve deeper into the history of the Forerunners and who they were.

The enemies you’ll face in the game will be totally new to fans of the series, but they may have a touch of familiarity to fans of the series. In Halo 4, you’ll find yourself on a foreign planet filled with Prometheans, which are essentially super-advanced Forerunner AI. From the look of it, they’re bigger, badder, and better armed than the Convenant and Elite enemies we’re used to. They come in three different classes: Knights, Watchers, and Crawlers. Each has different abilities and can work together, so your strategy will need to change depending on the makeup of the enemy horde you’re facing.

Halo 4 is scheduled to be released on November 6th, so be sure to check back for more trailers as the date draws nearer.
