343 Studios Fires Off Two New Halo Trailers

on August 17, 2012 6:04 PM

Microsoft and 343 Studios recently released two new trailers for their upcomingHalo sequel. In the first, we catch a glimpse of the various UNSC weapons the players will have at their disposal. In the short 90-second trailer, you’ll have a chance to see the Magnum pistol, Battle Rifle, DMR, Rocket Launcher, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, Sticky Detonator, Saw, Spartan Laser, and Railgun in action. Obviously, by featuring so many weapons, each clip is only a few seconds long, but we get a glimpse at some good headshot and warthog-exploding action.

The second trailer, simply titled “prelude”, allows fans to get a peek behind the scenes at 343. The studio is obviously sparing no expense to deliver a high-caliber sequel worthy of the Halo franchise, and it clearly shows as the trailer features massive orchestras, masterful choirs, talented artists and dedicated developers. Halo 4 will hit shelves on election day, November 6th.
