In more recent news, Halo 4
will be accompanied by a hideous custom console
As previously mentioned
[...] bundle contains an exclusive, custom-designed console and two exclusive controllers inspired by the game, a standard edition copy of "Halo 4," a wired headset, a massive 320GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, and Xbox LIVE tokens for exclusive "Halo 4" in-game and avatar marketplace downloadable content. The "ring of light" on the console, as well as the Xbox Guide button of the controller will showcase a glowing blue color to match the overall "Halo 4" color scheme.
, a live-action web series
entitled Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
is being produced to coincide with the release of the new game.
Set to debut October 5, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn tells the story of a young cadet named Lasky, and his time at an UNSC academy. The facility comes under attack during the early stages of the human/Covenant war, and a chance meeting with John-117 inspires this young man to become a better soldier. Eventually, Lasky will grow to become one of the Spartans aboard the UNSC Infinity, which is a key part of the story in Halo 4.
