Not the biggest Halo fan, but ran across this:
Pure trailer, no gameplay:
Damn you Halo. Everytime a new one comes out i scoff it off and remind myself why i dislike the series. Then they do something clever and sure enough i find myself ordering it.
The Halo 4 team plans on releasing 5(free) co-op missions per week in a apparently growing storyline. Not sure how successful it will be, but damned if i wont be trying it out.

Halo 4 could be the best one yet. So pumped for it.
"Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."
"We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."
"Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."
"I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

I was watching a review of Halo 4 on You Tube that said only the first season of Spartan-Ops will be free. But there was no information on how long a season will last. So that was a bit sad to hear.

3-4 months extra content for free does not sound like a bad deal to me in the least.
I obsessively loved the original Halo. But i felt that Halo 2 was one of the worst games ive every played. Combine that with Halo 3, which i felt that while it was extremely fitting "end" for the series but ultimately underwhelming, and my distaste for first person shooters i soured considerably on the series(though i enjoyed ODST). That being said, despite that very much biased opinion against the series, i feel that Halo Reach was one of the very few games out there that far exceeded its price tag. The amount of great content in that game was worth more then 60 bucks.
By all indications Halo 4 has all the previous stuff and is adding more onto it. If they give us a few months worth of free content, then all the better.
Figured since we are getting close to the release date I would update this thread.
This is the a video talking about the new bad guys, the Forerunners/Prometheans:
Here is a video on a couple of the campaign missions that have been played by the media so far:
Armor abilities walk through video:
Armory walk through. Though I am pretty sure these are just the few armors that are unlocked at first as opposed to everything that can be unlocked:
Promethean enemies and weapons: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Hal...ges-46670.html
Covenant weapons. Beam rifle is back baby!:
UNSC (human) weapons:
On the side of objective multiplayer I know there have been quite a few updates. In odd ball and Griff Ball you can know throw the "ball". Which is just awesome. They just announced that during a game of Infection (zombies) 2 infected players will start the game as Flood combat forms against a team of 10 humans. And the Flood players will have a Flood "claw" arm instead of the sword.
In campaign there is also a derivable mech called a Mantis.
Except for a couple of poor redesigns (legendary emblem and the Jackal) I really like what I see.
Here is the Gameplay Launch trailer. I am super stoked about this game. November 6th can't get here soon enough.
I wish I could play first person games.
