Spoilers Be Warned
A fresh trailer for Halo 4 hit over the weekend, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the development of the upcoming mega-shooter.
In A Hero Awakens, posted below, you’ll see various bits and bobs going on at 343 Industries, as work continues on the game. It turns out, however, that the video may have been a little more revealing than initially intended.
You see, in the vid some pages from the game’s script can be seen. And, despite the fact that they only appear briefly, the internet has been through them like Dan Webb through Miley Cyrus’ knickers draw, giving everything a very close look and having a little sniff.
Read on below the vid if you want to know more, but obviously there are massive spoilers down there. Down there in the post I mean. Not Miley Cyrus' knickers.
Right, still with us? Remember: Great BIG spoilers.
Below you’ll find all of the info discovered and compiled by NeoGaf users from both the above trailer and the novel Halo The Thursday War, which apparently includes several pointers towards the events of Halo 4.
