| Halo 4 is a sci-fi first-person shooter developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 on November 6, 2012. It is the seventh installment of the Halo franchise, the first produced by 343 Industries, the first in the “Reclaimer trilogy”, and the official sequel to Halo 3.|
Set almost five years after the events of Halo 3, Halo 4 takes the series in a new direction and sets the stage for an epic new sci-fi saga, in which the Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Halo 4 also introduces a new multiplayer offering, called Halo Infinity Multiplayer, that builds off of the Halo franchise’s rich multiplayer history. The hub of the Halo 4 multiplayer experience is the UNSC Infinity; the largest starship in the UNSC fleet that serves as the center of your Spartan career. Here you’ll build your custom Spartan-IV supersoldier, and progress your multiplayer career across all Halo 4 competitive and cooperative game modes.
