------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Reach will NOT follow the book, Fall of Reach.

- We play as Spartan IIIs. Jorge is the only Spartan II on the team, and as a result is larger.

- You can change your armor at equipment caches while playing.

- Equipment will include sprinting feature, invisible feature +more --- your choice.

- The game is darker than any of the other Halo games, but still keep its colour.

- Bungie have once again made the Covenant more dangerous and frightening, as they were in Halo 1.

- Covenant soldiers no longer speak English, they speak in their own languages.

- A new enemy like a Jackal has been introduced, named a "Skirmisher." They are deadly and cunning enemies that attack in packs, and flank secure positions.

- Graphics have been improved drastically, as proven by in-magazine comparisons.

- Elites are back, and are more ferocious than ever.

- Larger scale combat will be in Reach. Where only 20 AI at a time could be on screen in Halo 3, now over 40 AI and 20 vehicles can be present at a time.

- Dynamics lights in Halo 3, 3-4 at once --- Halo Reach will have 20-40

- Scenes are more cinematic.

- Health Bar is back along with energy shield (Halo 1 style)

- New single shot rifle like the Halo 2 E3 demo is in the game, named the Designated Marksman Rifle (DRM)

- Sniper, AR and Magnum make a return. Gun sounds are more realistic.

- Needler Rifle is in the game, a mid-range headshot capable weapon (Tom Morello leaked pics?).

- Spike Grenades and Flame Grenades are out. Only frags and plasma remain.

- Civillian vehicles are now drivable.

- Fully stealthy gameplay is now possible.

- Assassinations are possible with a knife by holding down the melee button.

- Grunts look a lot more menacing.

- All features from Halo 3 (Forge, Theatre, Co-op) make a comeback along with several new ones.

- We will be shown what Reach looks like before it is destroyed. We will see the levels of destruction progress as we get further through the game.

I don't think Bungie will let 343 touch the Master Chief storyline thus no Halo 4. But yes will definitely be some sort of Halo from 343

I just really don't think there will be a Halo 4 and I don't want there to be. Master Chief's story is done and they shouldnt tamper with it. This is actually a good test to see whether Microsoft really cares about their IP or if they're just greedy. If they cared, then no Halo 4, if they want money, Halo 4 definitely. But like i said before, there will be some other form of Halo. I wouldnt mind a Halo Wars 2

It depends.

I think Halo 4 would be a great idea.But it doesnt have to be more of MC's story.A whole new protagonist could be created.There are so many great possibilities for Halo 4.Maybe a new antagonist that the UNSC and the Cov Seperatists team up and fight.maybe the battle will lead them to the mysterious planet cheif is on and Chief will join the battle.So many possibilities.

Just look at Starwars,at first they just made the "Rebel vs Empire" story,then they made the Clone Wars story to fill in the gap before.Halo could do the same thing.

well really they did that with Odst
filling gap between 2 and 3
but during that gap masterchief sat on his ass in that ''covenant rocket'' from halo 2 it wouldnt be exciting to see what he did there ... (that sounded wrong)

since you have the mag is it possible for you to get high res scans from it, not like the blurry pics?
