The game's introductory cinematic scenes and first level will be previewed publicly for the first time today here at the Electronic Entertainment Expo game convention. At the end of Halo 3, conquering hero Master Chief goes into cryogenic sleep. He is awakened by his artificial-intelligence sidekick Cortana to face "a new threat in the universe," says executive producer Kiki Wolfkill, a former art director at Microsoft Games Studios who worked with Bungie on Halo 3.
I just had an Elite buddy follow me from "100,000 Years' War" all the way to the next cutscene where Rtas says, "On your way, Arbiter! I'll deal with these beasts." It was really cool at several points. Started out with me following him while he was in a tank, then ended up with me in a human tank and him in a Wraith. We were wrecking shit.
Quarantine Zone would be one of the better Halo levels were it not for Flood with lock-on rockets. It's almost there but that really holds it back.
