Now's as good a time to ask: what is the practical point of those divots in the visors?

Maybe the visor can retract upwards and downwards in 2 pieces? it cant be for structural integrity because it would be weaker than a solid curved surface.

Safety glass? lol

I'm glad they've never done that :)

I think the ODST method of tinting/polarizing the visor was a neat trick that allowed for more flexibility in the storytelling without descending into contrivance (while giving the Spartans the same thing would have been odd, everyone taking off their helmets in Reach struck me as more odd.)

Yeah. Master Chief is fighting Bionicles.

Badass Forerunner Bionicles!

Didact has a badass voice.

Forerunner weapons are the COOLEST LOOKING THINGS EVER.

"He" is flying around in a giant sphere, trying to beat Master Chief to the Infinity, which has crashed on Requiem. Most likely Didact, but reminds me so much of the Primordial on his flying disc in Primordium.

More Halo 4 might be coming later.

Didact definitely going to be in it, definitely super-strongly hinted he's the enemy flying around in a giant Forerunner spaceball.

Cool transforming Forerunner guns, and wacky Forerunner enemies.

Cliffs notes:

Started with a live action quick intro to the FUD series.  Looks EXTREMELY well done.  Infinity is an exploratory vessel, not necessarily meant for combat.  It ends with the Infinity going haywaire while it is pulled into Requiem, as it emerges through the clouds on the other side, it is now in game footage.  We see it fly over Master Chief, who goes off to help.  The big orange ball seen hovers above chief and scans him before flying off towards the infinity.  Cortana says its probably heading to the infinity.  A handful of smaller flying covenant ships zoom over chief, probably heading the same direction.  Chief heads theough the woods.  Looks amazing.  Reminds me of Metroid Prime.

Voice at the end...can't say it's def the Didact, but it sounds badass enough to be him.
