Rumors and leaks

So I found something I wanted to share, but I wasn't sure where I should place it.

Basically I wanted to start this thread for any rumors or leaks FuD members may come across. If they are proven true, then I suppose they could be moved to another part forum thread.

Anyway, I found this video on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZrnbB1slGc&feature=g-all-u&context=G2da57b0FAAAAAAAAAAA

It's a quick video showing the Official Xbox Magazine cover (or an advertisement) relating to Halo 4. Next to a picture of Master Chief is the wording "Master Chief faces his toughest adversary yet - The creator of the Halo rings. Epic new details in the next issue"

So before I dive into this, let me clearly state that I understand this is may be a rumor and/or leak, and I am not treating this as if it were true; I am merely speculating as if it were true.

SO, the statement indicates that we will be fighting the creator of the Halo array. Notice how creator is singular, not plural. Does this mean we will be going up against the Master Builder (as it has been suggested by FuD members in earlier forum posts)?

If this is true, I hope it is just one Forerunner or maybe a group of renegade Forerunners, because I was really looking forward to fighting alongside the Forerunners in the Reclaimer trilogy.

Thoughts anyone?

I was thinking the same thing, but on the other hand mags aren't known for their accuracy--the creator of the rings may not be the Master Builder at all if they've garbled it :P

True. I always found it funny how mistakes like that occur in widely distributed publications. But who knows, it might not be a typo if it's legit.

...Guilty spark lies more than anyone else in the canon pretty much...
    My guess is Summun Malum has something to do with this....

Yeah me too. And i cant imagine that the master builder, the composer, the librarian, and the didact are A) all dead. And B) all on the same side...

I dunno. CEA was a good attempt that was diminished somewhat by poor integration with Reach in terms of maps and some questionable design choices (inheriting Reach's Elite design, making every human crewman pudgy, et al). I'd trust 343i to do a better job, but I don't see how they could do a quality redesign of Halo 2 while making Halo 4.

Maybe release a commemorative multiplayer pack DLC or something, but I'd rather they not redo the campaign if it's not going to be up to snuff.

It is. In my opinion, the single greatest affront to Halo's design aesthetic (besides perhaps the ugly Reach AR) is reducing the Elites to hunchbacks for multiplayer reasons.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
I think it made them look more like active predators, stalking their prey. That seems like a good image to me.
