Halo 4 live action trailer, awesome ending battle scene
The release of the Halo 4 live action trailer is proof that we are fast approaching the end of the countdown to the games release, and we just love the Hollywood touch. In this video we get to see John’s (Master Chief’s) past, and it isn’t a good one. The intensity builds into an awesome ending battle scene, but it’s much more difficult watching it knowing that there’s a man behind the helmet with a scarred past from his childhood.
The name of the Halo 4 trailer is simply called Scanned, and it’s because when the Chief meets up with his foe he is scanned, it’s then that we get to see his past. While it may start off peacefully while John is a small boy playing on a beach, things then take a darker route when he is taken from his home so that he can be turned into the super solider that he is today.
We then get to see glimpses of John’s transformation into the Master Chief, and one scene is like watching when Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader when the mask and helmet finally go on. From then it’s all action and we can clearly see David Fincher and Tim Miller’s touches, and we would have to say that this could be the best two minutes of the year so far.
There was never any doubt that this trailer would be well received, and you know when a good job has been done when gamers express their need for the game now. We bet Microsoft are counting down the days as well, as sales of the Xbox 360 have been pretty low for a while now, so it’s hoped that the release of Halo 4 will increase sales of the aging console once again.
When we hear comments that this could be the best Halo from the series, there is no reason to doubt it. The development team for Halo 4 is on another level and they also have the advantage of being able to get so much more from the current-gen console because they were able to squeeze a lot more from the Halo: Reach engine. Not all fans enjoyed the new Halo 4 live action trailer because some of them were a little underwhelmed, and felt that the Halo: Reach trailer Deliver Hope was far better, but do you share this opinion? We have added both trailers for you to give us your views.
