excellent thread!

crap, accidentally quoted myself instead of editing… fail

also i think you’re missing this image http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/Universe/detail/halo-4-master-chief-gallery/8c0254fc-3dc5-464e-b9ef-0c6c924abcab#imageNumber=3, which is too awesome not too include!

Thanks a bunch for this topic :slight_smile:

Exclusive Waypoint Master Chief picture

I believe that is not featured in your topic.

EDIT: I was beaten to it.

Would you make or find a gif of the halo 3/4 chief comparisons?

Covies finally confirmed. Fantastic!

Are you planning on updating it when more news has been told? sneaky bump >:D

Edit to my original post…This is with out a doubt our First Good look. And honestly my decision is made up on pre-ordering, I am. Question is, who to use as the Third Party.

Btw…do we know if there will be any Special things given to those who pre-order? As well as any Special Editions??

I believe I heard somewhere that Assassinations(The animations) were returning.
