Halo 4's Master Chief changes are story-driven
343 Industries have "reasons" for Master Chief's cod-piece free makeover. Reasons beyond taste, I mean.
"There's some story behind his new look," Frank O'Connor told OXM
"There are specific reasons why he looks the way he does and why some of his behaviours have changed. We'll see in good time."
Halo 4 is the first game to be made by 343 since creators Bungie handed over the series. It is the beginning of an entirely new trilogy. Check out Matser Chief's new look as briefly featured in the game's reveal trailer below.
343 has said the Anniversary remake of the original Halo will contain some hints at Halo 4's storyline. It's due exclusively on Xbox 360 at the end of 2012.
