Halo 4 Reveals Master Chief, Villains with Artbox and Toys
Developers 343 Industries revealed a picture-puzzle as the pieces were sent via email to a number of Xbox Live members.
"NeoGAF member spawn031 took the 32 pieces and assembled them into the expected box art for the first game for 343 Industries. The image offers another hint as to what the Spartan team may be up against when the game is released on Nov. 6," writes Shack News.
The puzzle when put together revealed the Master Chief staring to the heavens with the Pillar of Autumn burning in the background.
"In the box art, the Master Chief is standing near the wreckage of the UNSC frigate Forward Unto Dawn. Master Chief and Cortana have been drifting through space aboard the Dawn ever since the conclusion to Halo 3. Their wandering unexpectedly ends when they encounter a mysterious new planet," writes Cinema Blend.
Halo 4 has also revealed new multiplayer models along with new looks for Master Chief and Cortana. Though information about the game's villains have not been revealed, antagonists Crawler and Watcher figures coming to the game has been seen in the McFarlane Toys' packaging.
"Info about the new enemies has been tightly guarded but two types of Halo 4 bad guy have been spotted on the back of McFarlane Toys' packaging. The blister card says that Crawler and Watcher figures are "coming soon." Hopefully, we'll get a look at these alien antagonists in digital form at E3," reports Kotaku.
