Last week a few chosen journalist had the opportunity to play Halo 4 in Seattle. Those played a couple of campaign levels, some Spartan Ops and Halo 4's multiplayer "Wargames". Expect new footage of every aspect.
If you do not want to see some stuff from the campaign, then [insert your favorite bailout.gif]

Today's GametrailersTV showcased new campaign and Spartan Ops footage, unveiled a new map called "Solace" which was designed for the competitive use in mind. Even a new multiplayer gametype was shown. Dominion is a large scale team oriented gametype where players try to capture bases. If your team have captured the base, the base will get fortified and drop some resupply for your team.
Watch the full episode of GTTV! Or watch only the Halo 4 sections(Thanks Kibbles!)

This game looks amazing every time I see it. Definitely going to have to reserve some of my gaming money/time quota for it this holiday.

The campaign sounds and looks great.

Three way battles between Prometheans, us and Covenant like Halo 1. :D

That place there.
Wait, from the polygon preview, Spartan Ops/vehicle spoilers:
"While 343i gave a taste of Spartan Ops at E3, this time they showed off a more vehicle oriented skirmish scenario called "Land Grab" that ultimately climaxed in three Scarab tanks bombarding Covenant positions with plasma explosions"
Are we talking Scarabs Scarabs here or did they confuse vehicles? That sounds too awesome to be true.

Requiem for the Future eh? Heh. Screenshots look great! As does the footage in the GB video. Interested to see how this all comes together.
