The hugely anticipated Halo 4 is currently set to launch worldwide on November 6th, and the game features the return of talismanic hero Master Chief, and also marks the Halo debut of 343 Industries… if you aren’t counting their excellent remake of the original Combat Evolved, which was released at the end of last year. MS announced a while ago that Halo 4 was going to launch in two versions; both of which are now available for pre-order at zavvi.com.
