The art director for Halo 4 is Kenneth Scott. He described the visual style of Halo 4 as being more ingrained in the expanded universe fiction, and more “mature” than before. With the game’s increased focus on the Forerunners, the artists have invested heavily on the look and feel of Forerunner technology. It has also been stated that there will be more diversity to Forerunner structures, including fully active Forerunner technology as opposed to the mostly inert and abandoned structures seen in the earlier games
We can get a preview of the art style and direction from the Halo 4 box art that was revealed today. Microsoft emailed 32 separate pieces of the same image to various fans of the series in messages titled “Your Piece of the Halo 4 Puzzle.” The pieces were numbered X/32, allowing the players to put together their images on forums with all the appropriate components of the puzzle. Frank O’Connor posted this picture on his Facebook confirming its legitimacy. What do you think gamers?
