Slash Gear -

Halo 4 is easily one of the year’s most anticipated games, and in order to make it as big and spectacular as fans are expecting, a lot of work had to go into it. A new video from 343 Industries gives us a glimpse of all that work. Dubbed “Prelude,” the video gives us a peek behind the scenes, showing a myriad of things the team at 343 had to do in order to get Halo 4 right.


The two-and-a-half minute video showcases just how much work has gone into creating Halo 4, from recording the soundtrack to filming the motion capture for the in-game models. There’s footage of programmers and designers doing what they do best, and we’re even treated to a glimpse at how the team records the sound of weapon fire. All of this is set to a rousing score that’s sure to give any longtime Halo fan chills.
