Prepare For An Epic Battle This November With Halo 4
Halo 4 is a first-person shooter game and is the 8th and latest release in the massively popular Halo games for the Xbox 360. This latest installment is overseen by 343 Industries, an in-house division of Microsoft Studios that was established after the original developer Bungie, Inc. declared its split from Microsoft Studios. Halo 4 release date is set on November 6 of 2012.
The Plot :
If you are one of the rare few who are unaware of the plot of Halo, the storyline focuses on a futuristic war between humanity and a group of aliens called the Covenant. The Covenant aliens, who are worshipers of an ancient race called the Forerunners, have branded mankind as heretics and have launched a war of genocide against all of humanity.
The defense of mankind is led by a group of “cybernetically enhanced” soldiers called the Spartans, which includes Master Chief John-117 and his sidekick Artificial Intelligence Cortana. At the end of Halo 3, a portion of Frigate is floating in space with the Master Chief and Cortana on board, and he goes into hibernation. At the start of Halo 4, the master chief wakes up after four years. They find themselves on an artificial Forerunner planet where a human colony ship seems to have crashed.
This Halo 4 multiplayer game is designed as the first in a new trilogy set in the Halo universe. Supposedly, there will be less shooting and more exploration and discovery-making. Little is known about the storyline of the succeeding chapters, though the tone is said to be much grimmer in the 5th installment until the eventual resolution of the storyline in 6th.
Halo 4 Multiplayer Specializations:
Once you have gone through the first 50 levels of the fame’s ranking system, you will have the chance to select among several specialization options. Once you have made your choice, you will have to fulfill missions to get through ten more ranks. You will be unlocking nine bonuses as you play through, and then when you reach the tenth level you can unlock a special armor mod.
There will be eight Halo 4 multiplayer specializations to choose from:
Only the Wetworks and the Pioneer specialization will be available for those who have purchased the Standard edition of this game. The rest of the specializations will be unlocked one at a time after the Halo 4 release date. Those who got the special Limited edition of the Halo 4 multiplayer game will be able to choose from all eight of the specializations immediately.
Choosing a Specialization
For those whose options are limited to the Wetworks and Pioneer specializations, each has its advantages. The Fast Track armor mod of the Pioneer will allow you to level up much more quickly than the others. As for the Wetworks, it comes with a great Stealth armor mod that will enable you to come near your targets and do assassinations while remaining unseen. Choose wisely, as you cannot change specializations until you reach level 10.
