Halo 4's latest developer diary isn't what you would expect from 343 Industries, but it's no less interesting for that fact. The video, entitled 'Prelude', takes a very cinematic approach to showing some behind the scenes looks inside the heart of Halo 4 headquarters.
The diary opens with some shots of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where 343 Industries is located, and then moves inside the building itself. We see developers preparing themselves for the task of creating the next great Halo story, something that can't have been easy to approach.
Bungie Studios was beloved for their work in the iconic Halo series, and they will forever be remembered as pioneers in the first-person shooter genre. In an era where console games just weren't able to stack up to their more-powerful PC counterparts, Bungie Studios and Microsoft came along with something called Halo and a game console known as the Xbox, completely changing the way we looked at console gaming.
Can 343 Industries live up that legacy that came before them?
From the developer diary above, it sure looks like they are trying their level best. The game has looked impressive in screenshots, videos, behind the scenes features and interviews so we have high hopes that 343 Industries will release a worthy entry into Halo canon.
Check out the developer diary above, released during Gamescom 2012.
