If the Forerunners really are the new enemy

PRIMORDIUM SPOILERS

Can we expect to team up with Bornstellar-Didact? Given that he was the protagonist in Cryptum and makes a major and seriously -Yoink–kicking appearance towards the end of Primordium, I don’t think it would feel right fighting against him in H4. I think Faber’s forces will be our main enemies in the game, and/or Bornstellar-Didact’s Warrior-Servant escort turns against him and sides with Faber’s gang.

What do you folk think?

Well Tartan, can’t let a familiar face from B.net have his thread hit second page with no replies.

I’m thinking that 4 is going to be a whole lot of set-up. A lot of explaining the premise of Cryptum and such for everyone who hasn’t read the books, who all the characters are, more background that wasn’t explicitly covered before. Maybe Bornstellar-Didact will be introduced near the end, or may take on a sort of subversive behind the scenes presence.

Cheers, huter.

And you’re probably right: Guilty Spark plays a pivotal role in the series, yet we see nothing of him for the majority of the first game. Right now, I’m thinking of H4 as an enormous, flourishing new possibility for Halo’s story, rather than merely the first act in a trilogy. :stuck_out_tongue:

I don’t see why we’d be fighting Forerunners, but it’s also an “ancient enemy which Chief has never faced before.”

I don’t see it being anything else, to be honest.

Some people have suggested the Precursors. To be honest, I can’t really remember what became of them. Weren’t they eliminated by the Forerunners? Did they flee to beyond the galaxy? Did the human that was, in Primordium, Gamelpar’s geas find the Precursor Gravemind beyond the galaxy? Did it kill and/or absorb a majority of remaining Precursors or not?

Why is it, that whenever one of these threads pops up, the Precursors are the farthest from peoples minds, yet the closest to the truth? In my opinion, the Precursors will be the main enemies. The Precursors were an Ancient Evil to the Forerunners. The Precursors supposedly created the Flood, The Timeless One even gave himself to the Flood and became and Advanced Gravemind. No Forerunners would want to fight Humanity. They used the rings to protect life in the Galaxy at the cost of their own, though that seems debatable at the moment. If anything, the Forerunners would be allies. Not enemies.

It’s pretty much implied that the Precursors are still alive, they simply left the galaxy. Thing is, the UNSC (or the Covenant, for that matter) do not have the technology to combat either race. So it’s confusing.

The Precursors are presumed to have left the galaxy and are supposed to return in 100,000 years by the time of Primordium, which effectively puts there return at the time of 2550’s. Halo 1-3 established that it was 100,000 years at that point since the Halo Array was activated. I might be off on that.

I personally think it’ll be the Precursors.

“We saved every organism in the universe and now it’s time to collect…with blood.”

Even though the Forerunners and humanity shared a very…hostile history, they still did make us Reclaimers. That’s been an established fact since Halo: CE. It would be pretty stupid to make the Forerunners enemies. I get Spark’s terminals make it seem that way, but Spark is far from a reliable narrator. I doubt Chief could even beat one Promethean warrior, he can barely handle fighting a single Elite on a bad day.

SPOILER

At the end of Primordium the A.I. told them he would take them to the Librarian. I think she will be a part of it and it will explain any additional UNSC personnel on the planet if she is there.
