If you’re like me, you never expected Halo 4 to come out. Every once in a while, we’d see a few fake teasers pop up on YouTube. Sometimes, someone would post in a forum something that said “Halo 4 confirmed!” But alas, we’d find out it was merely a troll. Of course, we didn’t really expect a Halo 4. After all, we had “finished the fight” and were told that Halo was meant to be a trilogy. But one day, a video popped up on the Internet, and we all discovered that it was an actual, real-live, true-blue Halo 4 trailer!
Granted, this Halo isn’t being made by Bungie, and there might be some debate as to whether or not this is a true Halo game. However, I consider it to be most definitely a spiritual successor, and I’m willing to see a continuation of Master Chief’s story as told through different eyes. (Of course, most of 343 is comprised of former Bungie employees.) I have high hopes for this game, and I thought I would share a few Halo 4 websites that will help build the hype. Below, you’ll find four websites to tide you over before November 6th.
Halo 4 Forum [No Longer Available]
The Halo 4 Forum (or perhaps fourum – I’ll show myself out…) is a website devoted to the discussion about the upcoming 343 Industries supported game. Since the game hasn’t exactly come out yet (save for the recent leak), a lot of the discussion has surrounded speculation, news, and revelations of whatever 343 offers. Of course, the discussion isn’t solely focused on Halo 4. There are discussions about other games and even the original trilogy.
The news aggregation site Reddit already has a Halo-related sub-community, but there’s actually one for Halo 4 as well. Here, you’ll find articles and videos about the upcoming game, but besides that, you’ll find cool pictures and fan-creations as well. Realistically, this is a place where everything about Halo 4 can be submitted, and there are really no rules or regulations regarding that. If you’re wanting to have the Halo 4 craze condensed into a bite-sized chunk, this is the place for you.
Halo 4 Nation
Halo 4 Nation is a forum likened to the Halo 4 Forum, but it’s simply just another community. The discussions seem to be similar to the other forum mentioned here, but there’s a different crowd to talk with. You’ll find a few different features here including sections for Forge creations and even topics about other shooters.
IGN’s Halo 4 Wiki Guide
If you are wanting to know more details about Halo 4 specifically, IGN’s wiki has got you covered. The wiki is full of detailed information including the new weapons, enemies, and plot-line that the upcoming game will offer. Furthermore, there’s some intriguing information about the new multiplayer experience that we’ll be getting to see. I would utilize the wiki as something like a manual when the game comes out, but until now, just use it as a means to whet your appetite until we actually get to play it!
Here are just a few websites to get yourself ready for the Halo 4 experience, but nothing will really compare to actually playing it! I know that I’m definitely excited, and these Halo 4 websites make me even more excited.
