I know everyone is scared that the next Halo game not being made by Bungie is not going to live up to their high standards, but after reading some articles about what 343i has in store for Halo, I’m getting excited.
Here are some of the changes I’m looking forward too.
Not much has been shared yet for the campaign.
We know it takes place after the events of Halo 3. Cortana and the Chief have stumbled upon a planet called Requiem. The entire planet is incased in a huge shield that can protect anything inside of it from a Halo firing.
The Master Chief will be facing all new enemies, weapons, and many forerunner environments.
343i has taken Halo multiplayer to a whole new level.
Everyone trains as Spartan IVs aboard the largest ship in the human fleet the UNSC Infinity.
Training takes place on the combat deck where any combat environment can be simulated.
Maps add to universe and are not taken from campaign. Master Chief actually comes across the Infinity in the campaign, because the Infinity is a on a deep space mission.

Random weapon drops for all the powerful weapons
Sprint is standard, with your choice of an additional ability
Earn spartan points to improve your character with gameplay effecting upgrades
The newest addition and the one I’m most excited about is Spartan Ops mode.
It’s a cooperative episodic mission based gameplay that you can play with up to four of your friends
Every week 5 missions are released that add to the story, with new cinematics and challenges.
These are not dlcs this is promised content that will be release over a series of a couple months.
I think this is one of the coolest ideas I’ve seen in awhile that really connects the community to the universe even after the game is released
