'Halo 4' Return of the Forerunners trailer - watch

By
Halo 4 has been given a new trailer from 343 Industries.

Titled 'Making Halo 4: Return of the Forerunners', the video goes behind the scenes to show how the new Promethean enemies were created.


The Prometheans are a new enemy race for Halo 4, consisting of knight, watcher and crawler classes.

Knights will be the standard enemies, and can use an energy shield and teleport across the battlefield. Crawlers, as the name implies, can crawl on walls and will group together in packs to ambush the player. Meanwhile, watchers are flying enemies that will support the other two by catching grenades and reviving knights.

Halo 4 is set four years after the events of Halo 3, marking the return of iconic hero Master Chief and representing the beginning of a brand new saga.

Halo 3 wrapped up the original trilogy in 2007, but the fate of Master Chief and his artificial intelligence companion Cortana was left open-ended.

In addition to the single-player campaign, Halo 4 will feature a robust multiplayer offering through War Games, which will take place on the Spartan training ship Infinity and will tie into the game's story.

343 Industries recently announced that there will be downloadable class specialisations available for multiplayer, as well as a War Games Map Pass providing access to future DLC maps.

The game will also release as a Limited Edition, including a host of in-game extras, the War Games Map Pass and an extended 90-minute version of the live-action Forward Unto Dawn series.

Named 'Best Shooter' and 'Best Multiplayer' during Digital Spy's Best of E3 2012 awards, Halo 4 will be available exclusively on Xbox 360 from November 6 worldwide.
