The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

343i's Frank O'Connor Demos Halo 4 Campaign, Shares New Info On Covenant

Posted on Thursday, September 27 @ 09:36:17 PST by Alex_Osborn

Today at Eurogamer Expo, the one, the only Mr. Frank O'Connor of 343 Industries took the stage to show off the third level of Halo 4's campaign, dubbed "Forerunner". Instead of giving you a long-winded play-by-play of the entire demonstration, I've included the footage above, courtesy of Eurogamer.

After demoing that section of the campaign, O'Connor entertained questions from the audience, confirming that jetpacks have been "nerfed a little bit since Reach" (yes!) and that the campaign does support up to four-player co-op, with everyone playing as Master Chief.

More interesting however, was his response to a question about the Covenant. Fans will remember at the end of Halo 3 (is a SPOILERS warning really necessary?) that the Covenant formed an alliance with humanity, so the fact that the Chief is fighting Grunts and Elites is a bit confusing. O'Connor hinted at why this is the case, saying:
You definitely saw the Covenant fighting the Prometheans there. The Prometheans were objecting to their presence on Requiem, which is the world the story takes place on. If you think about human society and human civilization, we're hardly monolithic. There are lots of different cultures and factions. You're going to find out about this particular faction and their particularly virulent form of the former Covenant with some really enthusiastic shall we say religious beliefs about the Forerunners.

And they never gave up hope. You can only imagine their delight and surprise when they find out at least some of their myths and some of their legends about the Forerunners turn out to be true. That's something they discover on Requiem initially in a surprising way, but the game will have a few twists and turns, so you'll definitely find out more about that both in the campaign and in Spartan Ops. That's a big part of the Spartan Ops story.
Get ready to continue the fight when Halo 4 drops this November.
