Microsoft and 343 have released the official, live action launch trailer for Halo 4. As previously announced the trailer was produced by renowned director David Fincher and directed by Tim Miller, who previously worked on the visual effects for Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
In the trailer Master Chief is scanned by a mysterious figure and we are given glimpses of his life before he became a Spartan. There are plenty of quick cuts, as we go from childhood to an older Chief undergoing the brutal physical augmentations needed to become a Spartan. Finally we see a brief battle scene between Master Chief and some Prometheans, a fight he does not seem to win.
