The famed Halo franchise has gone from the hands of Bungie, and into those of 343 Industries’, who also handled the Halo Anniversary release. In doing so, gamers have been anxious to see where to series has gone, and from what it looks like, critics are pleased with Halo 4.
Halo 4 is set in the aftermath of Halo 3, where Master Chief returns to confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Halo 4 marks the start of a new trilogy.
There’s just about enough time left for last-minute decision makers to get in their pre-orders.

One last thing. Not to influence your decision but if you order from Kalahari or Loot, we will get a small cut of the sale for us referring you to them.
