From an article in Gameinformer‘s website. In a marketing ploy today Microsoft sent numerous e-mails. Each e-mail contained 1 of 32 images. The 32 images when organized like a large cyber jigsaw puzzle revealed the kick ass image you can see below. It took all of an hour for the internet to piece together the MASTERCHIEF in all of his greatness.
It appears our hero harrowingly survives from his inexorable decent into that bright, blinding light piercing through the empty vacuum of space as we last saw in Halo’s 3 Legendary ending. From the image we can see what I surmise is the frigate Forward Unto Dawn (seen on the left of the image), the very same vessel last seen plummeting into a mechanical orb planet or a Dyson Sphere. We also see a Covenant vessel (seen on the right side of the image) in ruin, resembling more a heap of scrap metal in a junk yard than a superior advanced piece of technology.
I would extrapolate we are actually seeing a loose taking of the opening scene in the upcoming 343 Studios much anticipated, revered, and prized title Halo 4. Whether in Comp. Graphics / In-Game Graphics cutscene, or maybe even an artistic interpretation of one of the earlier levels in Halo 4. I have no inside information, therefore these are only the ramblings of a gamer. Please take my theory as so, just a theory. Maybe all will be clarified when Halo 4 is released and we can explore through new adventures of the man made of tin, and his trusty companion the lady of light. Yes I’m talking about Masterchief, and Cortana. Thank you for reading. I hope you have enjoyed yourself. Please leave feedback.
