Yesterday, 343 Industries e-mailed puzzle pieces to loyal Halo Waypoint fans as a viral campaign for the new ‘Halo 4’ game. There were 32 puzzle pieces in all with the message entitled “Your piece of the Halo 4 puzzle.” Fans worked together to piece the puzzle together and we now have the final product for you to see!
The puzzle revealed the new box cover art for the ‘Halo 4’ game. It has Master Chief in the forefront with the damaged UNSC vessel, Forward Unto Dawn, and the Covenant in the background and what appears to be a mechanical maw above it all.
‘Halo 4’ is the eighth installment in the ‘Halo’ franchise and the first one that isn’t being developed by series creator Bungie. The game is intended to be the first of a new trilogy of ‘Halo’ games under the ‘Redclaimer’ trilogy title and is set to occur sometime after ‘Halo 3’ with the return of Master Chief as the protagonist. In the game, he must confront his destiny while facing an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.
‘Halo 4’ isn’t set to be released until November 6, 2012 – just in time for the holiday buying season!
