Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Image

Many attempts at making a live-action Halo movie have failed miserably, but numerous live-action trailers have been made to promote new titles in the video game series that have effectively proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that a movie—if handled properly—could work.

With the highly anticipated return of Master Chief set happen when Halo 4 is released this Tuesday, November 6th, Microsoft isn’t holding back on the epic promotions. We’ve already seen a great live-action trailer that was produced by David Fincher, but the company also went ahead and spent $10 million to produce a massive five-part live-action web series titled Forward Unto Dawn. And while it may not be exactly the kind of movie fans of the games wanted, the five parts do in fact combine to create an impressive near 90-minute movie worth watching.

You can watch all five parts of Forward Unto Dawn by heading over to the other side now.

Halo 4

The first live-action trailer for the Halo franchise was such a success with audiences, the people over at Bungie thought they would do it all over again for the highly anticipated Halo 4. But the gaming studio didn’t just get anyone to help out with the trailer, they got David Fincher to help produce the Tim Miller-directed trailer. For those not familiar with Miller’s name, he is a visual effects artist whose work can be seen in the opening credits of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Halo 4

Apparently the best indication that a new generation of gaming consoles is on the horizon is when games of the current generation start requiring jaw-dropping amounts of hard drive space to play.

A recent update to Battlefield 3‘s multiplayer stood out for its hefty 2GB size, requiring players to wait impatiently for the update to finish, but another game might just force you to have to run out and do some errands or take up arts and crafts as you wait for it to install.

According to 343 Industries, the developers who took over the Halo franchise from Bungie, Halo 4 will require an 8 GB install in order to take part in its multiplayer action. That’s more than it takes to install almost any other full game to your hard drive, and nearly half the 20GB hard drive many people likely still have.

Halo 4 Promethean

One of the most anticipated games arriving later this year, Halo 4 reunites gamers with their beloved Master Chief.

Since first being announced at last year’s E3, fans have been itching to get a real look at some gameplay from the newest Halo adventure, and now they have it. It still looks like the Halo we all know and love, but with a few changes (such as weapons that automatically modify according to the player) and additions that look promising…including a whole new enemy known as the Prometheans (you’ll know them when you see them).

You can check out the Halo 4 gameplay demo by clicking on over to the other side now.
