Product Overview: “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a live-action digital series based on the best-selling Xbox franchise that brings a brand-new “Halo” story to life on a scale never before seen in the “Halo” universe. “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” delivers an exciting story of heroism and sacrifice, taking fans back to the beginning of the human and Covenant war and leading into the events of “Halo 4,” the biggest entertainment event of 2012.

Set against the backdrop of a United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, a group of highborn cadets are training to be the next generation of soldiers in the UNSC’s ongoing war with insurrectionists in the outer colonial planets. Among these cadets, Thomas Lasky struggles with his doubts about this war and with the burden of expectations he may not be able to carry. As Lasky comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the terrifying alien alliance known as the Covenant arrives and turns his world upside down. Inspired by the Master Chief, he must decide what it means to be a hero. “Halo” fans who experience Lasky’s thrilling origin story in “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” will be rewarded with special insights into the story of “Halo 4” and the “Halo Infinity Multiplayer” experience.

Halo 4's entire experience is going to be unparallelled in the amount of content and longevity (imo).

HDD space will be important (imo).

I modded a few HDD's already to work with the 360, saved me a lot of $AUD considering MS charge heavy here in AU for all their accessories/peripherals.



Only one of them is legitimately 250GB the rest are 320GB (all are modded however).

I am still waiting on that Comic-Con panel.. can't wait to see what Greg Bear has to say about Halo: Silentium (third book in the Forerunner trilogy and directly ties in with Halo 4) but also to see the full trailer for the first time (purposely waiting so I see it in the panel the first time)

On Saturday is yet another Comic-Con Panel for Halo 4 with Halo 4 singleplayer and multiplayer discussion and probably reveals.
