G4?????? D:?

“Also, you now play as Spartan IVs, non-augmented soldiers who have volunteered for service; unlike Master Chief, a Spartan II, who was genetically altered to be a super soldier. While the Spartan IV’s don’t have the genetic boost that Chief does, they are still formidable soldiers. So when players assume the role of them in multiplayer, expect it to feel almost identical to the way Master Chief feels in single-player.”

(http://www.g4tv.com/games/xbox-360/53696/halo-4/articles/76741/halo-4-gameplay-preview-setting-the-stage-for-the-next-decade-of-halo/) can we trust what there saying about SPARTAN-IV???

Everything G4’s said in your quote above is accurate. In fact, I believe they took that as a direct quote from Frankie.

my guess for spartans 4 is the reason they killing each other is for training and the best of the best wins go in real combat against alienz

lol ok 343 this makes perfect sense s2’s were augmented s’3 were also but weaker than the s2’s yet s4’s will be equivalent to spartan 2’s without augmentation? how does that… i don’t even… WHAT!! D:<

it would be assumed the “Non augmented” as a miss compunication in the interview because the only way a Odst could be on par with a Spartan II is to become augmented. plus some spartan IV are previous spartan IIs, and IIIs

we will play just like the chief for gameplay purposes, its just the fiction behind them.

In glassland it stated that spartan IV are augmented but only by volunteers from military groups and previous spartans, instead of the kidnapping or recruiting of children, it is speculated because the augmentations are “better” and have a lower mortality rate, and can be used one older individual where past variations had to be prepubescent.

Again game-play does not equal cannon.
/herp a derp

hm… in reach it shows how different and weak/slow SPARTAN-III are compared to SPARTAN-II in halo 1,2,3. so lets hope 343 gives us more info on SPARTAN-IV as soon as they can :-/

Frank has already stated in one of the interview that they will be on par with the spartan IIs

Glasslands says they get augmentations.

Agreed but I believe the term you are looking for is “lower” mortality rate… Higher means more deaths ex: Cancer has a higher mortality rate than chicken pox… Get it?

Maybe the armor does all the work.

A tech upgrade.

That’s unlikely, the Mjonir armour couldn’t even be worn by anyone who wasn’t a Spartan because it would kill them. It reacts as fast as a Spartan does, so for a normal person they would end up being thrown about inside it because it’s moving faster than they are.

Even if the IV’s have augmentations that make them on par with the II’s, bare in mind that the II’s will always have superior training. And since there aren’t any (maybe one or two) II’s and III’s they could turn into IV’s. Chief will still have the edege on them.

Everything is correct except for that last sentence. There are 7 Spartan 2’s I believe (including Master Chief)

The point the book was try to make is the have the exact training the spartan II, and IIIs had mostly spartan II, as well as being already highly trainer Special forces they also get the augments the spartans got and the better armor so there about equal seeing as the spartan II have had time to Gain experience.

So pretty much it come down to this

Spartan II
Spartan Training-Augmentations-Campaign experience

Spartan IV
Training-special forces training-experience-spartan training-augmentations

At least up till this point(glasslands) that all they have been able to do

Spartan II’s have been trained to be killing machines mentally and physically since age 5. Even if lV’s argumentations are just as good, II’s will still be superior, also armor doesn’t count because a spartan II can wear that armor swell. The advantage lV’s will have is not having as many death’s as II’s.

Spartan I.I
The children of the SPARTAN-Is are sometimes referred to as Spartan 1.1s. There are sixteen Spartan 1.1s, including Janissary James and Kevin Morales. Due to their parents’ augmentations, the Spartan 1.1s had to receive injections in order to ensure normal growth without defects. A small vigilante group of SPARTAN 1.1s, seemingly led by Kevin Morales, formed a plan to fight the Covenant. However, before this could come to fruition, the Covenant invasion of Earth began. Their whereabouts following the attack on Earth are unknown.

true im not saying the spartan IV will be better but if they have the same exact training added to what they already learned Ie special forces training they would rock

And if all Spartan were ordered to Join spartan IV to train together to become a major fight force. Then it wont matter they wont be Spartan I, II, III, They will just be spartan IVs.
