Halo Waypoint has released the official Halo 4 live action launch trailer "Scanned", featuring a rare glimpse of Master Chief's past and history in impressive HD quality.
"Master Chief's mind is violated by a powerful new enemy, who in searching for Chief's weaknesses, finds the source of his strength."
In Halo 4's official launch trailer, our iconic hero's mind is probed or scanned by a malevolent entity who's trying to find a weakness in the seemingly invincible warrior. In this probing, gamers get a rare glimpse into Master Chief's past life, before he was the iconic Spartan hero and just a carefree, sand castle-building, kid named John.
Fast forwarding through the years, we see John and his comrades after the grueling experiments of the Spartan II as well as the ceremonial donning of the Mjolnir Mark II Powered Armor after his training.
The live action trailer does an excellent job in adequately displaying a moving and revealing characterization of Master Chief, building anticipation and apprecation from fans–especially those who don't know much about Sierra 117's history. The cinematic trailer is in pristine HD quality and delivers quite an impressive look at Master Chief's persona as well as what drives him to keep on fighting.
Halo 4 will be available on Nov. 6, 2012 for the Xbox 360 console. For more information on further updates be sure to check Halo Waypoint's website.
